Yahoo auctions woes. I hate it when you're clearly bidding against another proxy user. You know there's some element in pride for winning the auction. And that damn auction timer keeps adding five minutes.

Just got some Sunspel Q90 briefs, they are going to take some getting used to, after wearing boxer briefs for years.

Going to the beach today; realized my beach outfit is entirely BoO

Black pants.
Natural leather belt.
Blue crewneck sweater when chillier. 

I got dressed this morning and realized I had worn this every day this week. I had swapped out jackets and shoe-wear depending on context and my feelings of the day. 

And now online I'm always looking... for white pocket shirts, and black pants.

I wonder if my wardrobe will end up being something like 10 pairs of black pants, all with subtle differences. I have two pairs of black uniqlo chinos, a pair of black outlier climbers, uniqlo black denim... and now I want these pants.

Call it a variation on a theme. I'm enjoying it. 

"democratic fit"

Basically went on a shopping spree, bags of clothes - still feel the need for more :/

 

Not really surprising as shopping releases the same chemicals cocaine does - buy clothing, get dopamine surge, dopamine wears off, feel need to buy more clothing...

I always like to bang a few lines before going shopping. Double your pleasure.

at what point does your tailor's homophobia and racism become too offensive to maintain employing him to work on your stuff....getting into a yelling match with old armenians(it's the cradle of civilisation don't you know?) is futile, i say

hahaha

dude is Armenian/middle eastern - always has to "educate" me on history and where I "come from" and basically tells me how dumb Canadians are and ignorant and shit like that. and that basically, because he seems to think he's more genetically closer to what he thinks of as the birthplace of civilisation (Armenia) that he's better than people, and has to educate people - you're not Canadian, you're caucasian! from the Caucasus! (I'm Czech/Indian descent so i look like one of his people so he likes that).

Same arguments all the time, but the conversation steered into politics and China/Russia and impending doom of the world (according to him)...I stupidly mentioned Russia and Putin and his insane homosexuality laws (stupidly because I know this guy is Orthodox Christian). He basically went on about how gays are the worst and should die and how awesome Putin is...I got really mad and into a yelling match with him...packed up my spandex I wanted made into pants and was about to leave....he made peace somewhat so we shook hands and bullshitted some more about stuff like humans as animals (guy contradicts himself all the time, but you can't point that out to an old man set in his ways (I said he was brainwashed and you should have seen his face) ) - he's still going to make my pants but I left disgruntled... nod[1].gif

lolz



edit: Basically what I'm saying is: how much slack do you guys cut people just because you "know where they're coming from"? I.e. you know how their culture has conditioned them and you can kind of explain how they've come to those stupid-ass ideas...how far does "I see where you're coming from" (understanding the reasoning behind shit) mitigate the shitty parts of a person's personality? I mean, he does good work...

How high is your tolerance you mean?
post #82408 of 109053
It's up to you, but I would never bring that type of person any business. Of course, from the sound of it, he wouldn't want my business either.
post #82409 of 109053
yeah brad I pretty much agree... think this is the end of that for me

Racism and homophobia are not mere "opinions," give me a break.
