The greatest shopping friend known to women may have just arrived at Bloomingdale's at South Coast Plaza. The Me-Ality takes the guessing out of sizing, style and best fit when it comes to finding that perfect pair of jeans. I recently tested it and was pleasantly surprised at its measurement accuracy. Here's how it works: You step inside this special booth - fully clothed - for about 10 seconds where scanners take your measurements via a special imaging system. When it's done, you get a bar code with your specific data, which is used to help select the perfect size and fit for you in a style of your choice - boot cut, skinny or straight leg. No endless trips to the fitting room to try on various denim.

That means practically no advertising and lots and lots of jeans. Walk into the Fashion Island store and the entire wall is stacked to the ceiling with denim ?

JUNE CASAGRANDE I'm a little more focused on business today than on language. One business in particular is on my mind: the Gap. I was actually trying to focus on language at the exact moment when the Gap got my goat. Taped to my front door, as I headed out to work, was a note to myself -- a reminder about some grammar issues. The note, actually scribbled on a used envelope, said, "snuck, dreamt, pled vs. pleaded, burned/burnt." This note was to help me remember some fodder for the grammar column I knew I'd write today (today meaning Friday)
