Well, if it's getting laid you want then by all means splash out on Bogner that I mentioned. The label is conspicuous enough to get you noticed, and I think Bogner will pull you a higher level of bird than ski lift operator. Lasse Kjus is another top brand. NorthFace is entirely too common, you know. Aim higher, like snow bunny, who will be in the know about more prestigious brands. And don't forget to purchase your apres ski kit too. You'll want a different look for...
It's hot and muggy right now. Get the zaru soba (basket of cold buckwheat noodles w/ a chilled dipping sauce). Have a cold nashi pear for dessert.
Heed pembers advice. Nothing screams poseur louder than someone kitted out in the top gear and who can barely snowplow. Some folks are partial to the matching top and bottom suit, say from Bogner. I don't like that look too much on men. Plus, I like to maximize the use of my clothes, and a dedicated ski suit doesn't allow that. My wife has a really nice one that flatters her from Belfe & Belfe, and I recall it makes guy's gear too. I like mixing it up w/ a thermal...
You ought to be watching Geordie Shore too. It's soound as a poound.
It's all about will power. If you don't have a strong will use this opportunity to build one. When I quit I embraced the discomfort and the urges. I learned quite a bit about the patterns of my life and the when, where and why I had a smoke. It was quite predictable, in fact initially I found I was on auto-pilot, i.e., do this and then have a cigarette. I recall walking outside for a smoke break and then remembering that I quit. Anyway, the jones would last for a few...
True story.The food and sanitation inspectors in Riyahd shut down a shwarma shop after finding its sauce had too low a spunk content. "Consumer fraud," said one official adding, "Not tasty, not tasty at all."
I had live-in maids a bit higher than that salary range when I lived in the Gulf. Thieving wenches all of them; the pilferage was unbelievable. They'd post laundry detergent back to India. A can of furniture polish would be "all used" in two days. One ran a lunchtime catering business cooking and serving my food to the security guards. This explains why refrigerators sold in the region have locks built into them.When caught each rationalized her theft with this very...
Agreed. Thing is it's often an immigrant-run place, and I gotta wonder how well mom and dad are paying the kids and other relatives.
Don't use your thumb to push food onto your fork. Don't hunch over your plate. Don't slurp. And don't blow your nose at the table - that's gruesome. All the other faux pas are pretty much forgivable.
Have you been to a Korean restaurant in Korea? Loud diners. Brusque service. No tipping. Ever. At the best ones you grill your meat on welded rebar over charcoal in a 55-gallon oil drum that's been modified into into a table/grill combo.Flippin' brilliant.
