"We Need A Bigger Well Of Fug To Pull From"

H: I mean, get back to me when I'm wearing them with a bikini to the grocery store. That's dysfunctional.

WC: I have the same thing, because in our house in Toronto, it got so cold, I wore them in the house. I was home all day, and I wore them with my socks.

H: They're so much warmer than slippers. And whatever you do at home is your business.

J: I put them on and was like, "Oh, God, I get it now."

H: I still don't get wearing them in [hot weather]. Or on the red carpet. Aesthetically, you know, whatever. But don't wear them on the red carpet, don't wear them in a bikini in ninety-degree weather.

WC: A few years ago, when Uggs were really big, I'd be walking around in Toronto in the winter and I'd see people in them in slushy weather and they were baby pink, you know? Now you ruined them! They're going to be all stained with salt. That I did not get.

H: Right.

WC: Do you ever regret calling the site "Go Fug Yourself," so that you guys are known as "The Fug Girls"?

H: The funnier thing is when people call us "The Fugly Girls," and we're like [with Jessica], "No, no, no, no, no."

J: I actually think it's kind of cute. I was in traffic the other day, where I do all my best thinking -- traffic and the shower -- and was thinking, "It's sort of weird to call me a Fug Girl, but 'Fug Woman'? That would be weird."

H: "Fug Ladies" makes us sound like we're fifty.

WC: Or a gang, like the Pink Ladies.

H: I sort of think it's charming. I don't remember who coined it. Mark Lisanti from Defamer used to call us "Gorgeous Ladies Of Fug" -- we should have picked up on that. What were we thinking? Actually, we both had a moment when we'd been doing the website, and I think it was five or six months in, VH1 had us do something -- one of those talking-head shows -- and we were like, "...Oh. This means we're going to have to tell our parents about this website."

J: I didn't want somebody to come up to my mom and say, "I saw your daughter on VH1," and have her go, "...Why?"

H: And I don't really swear in front of my parents, so it was like, "How am I going to do this?" I remember one day, my parents were visiting, and my mom and I were walking to the Beverly Center, as one does, and I was like [talking very fast], "Okay. So we have this website, and it's called Go Fug Yourself, I know I know I know, but you've got to admit, it's kind of funny, and, you can tell Dad." So she did. And I think my wedding was the first time I ever heard him say it out loud. Not that he wasn't totally proud of it, but he would call it "the blog" or "GFY."
