i meant socially clueless. academically, college was much less work/less stress than prep school because i knew how to be a top-notch student.but i needed a full semester to figure out social life at college -- and i have pretty good social skills. it took time for prep school to wear off.
My dad was an Army officer. Brother and I attended crappy Army schools in Germany and Italy (Army schools = big city ghetto schools) before parents sent us to prep school. Andover for me and Exeter for my brother. I experienced amazing culture shock. Andover was sinf or swim. My classmates were, for the most part, smart. Only dumbasses on campus were the PG year jocks being groomed for Ivy football and hockey teams. I got clobbered by how fast classes moved, by how...
It was a wild time. Casual sex where no one sweated STDs. AIDS was unknown. Drugs were everywhere, the Nancy Reagan just- say-no years still ahead of us. Disco appealed to gays, blacks, and anyone who looked good/dressed well and could move to the music and had sexual self-confidence. It was as if America wanted to forget the trauma of Vietnam and Watergate and just have a good time. By early 1977, punk/new wave was emerging. The music was terrific -- undanceable of...
Just returned from a week in Scotland. Stunning beautiful country. The cleanest country I've ever seen. Which makes sense -- distilling whiskey is all about the water (just as wine is all about the terroir, so the French tell us). But the food is pure shit. Astonishingly bad.

Nothing really major though. I'd rather do MTM, much more customization. No fucking clue what ready made even means. From how you define BB's MTO, I thought that was what their MTM was -- a standard pattern, but more careful measurements and your choice...

I've got shoes and boots I bought from the old New and Lingwood back in the early 1980s that are still good as new -- probably because I always store them with trees. In fact, I own more trees than I have shoes/boots that need them.
