I heard a story about a young man being interviewed for a job at a bank in London; I fail to remember if it was JP Morgan or Goldman Sachs or something similar. This man, fresh from college, had better test results than social skills. He was somewhat introvert and very nervous about the whole affair. He flew in from Sweden and arrived at the office dressed in a badly fitting black suit and light brown, clunky soled shoes. You all know the type. He learns that he has to...
This weekend I'm going to Budapest with my girlfriend. We are staying at the Sofitel Budapest and are looking forward to experiencing the city together, neither of us has been there before. I am looking for some tips and recommendations from those of you aquainted with the city. Which shops should I seek out? Apart from Vass my knowledge of Hungarian brands is sorely lacking.

I was browsing a Swedish fashion forum and came across this thread that not only amused me but also made me think. This forum has a higher percentage of younger, less experienced members but it's not bad for finding shopping deals and sales in Sweden. Anyway, this young man has just bought his first shirt with a French cuff (from Bertoni apparently) and seeks advice on applying the cuff-links. http://www.manligt.net/viewtopic.php?t=13151 (You will have to look...
Why are people here writing "h8"? I really hate it.
Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly was great though.
Ardbeg 10yo. I just knocked my glass over and it poured out over the bed. My girlfriend, who doesn't enjoy the smell of scotch and can detect it 10 m away in an empty glass, will not be pleasd...
