It is amazing really. You think something fits perfectly until you actually wear something that fits perfectly, then you hate everything else that you have.

I have a 29 in waist alien.gif

I don't know what waist I have because I get all my pants made for me. Suck on that, Neo_Version Pleb

And this.

So frustrating. I really need to go the route of pB, and have all of my pants bespoke.

Even then, there will always be favorites. As with anything hand made there are slight variations as well as tastes changing over time.

I just tried to deep fry a 8 pound chicken in my back yard. Its a practice run for the 13 pound turkey thats good and ready.

I was stupid and tried to do it by myself (later I have some friends and cousins coming over). There was a lot of exploding hot oil, and loud filipino/english swearing from me. my dogs came out and started barking up a storm. I was dressed like a hobo (I used my oil stained mechanic/shop apron/saftey goggles/yard gloves coat boots).

I fell while pulling up the chicken it. The chicken fell on the ground and my dogs started ravaging it.

My neighbors on both sides were watching from their windows. I felt like such a mexi-asian hillbilly. I saw their wasp-y faces in the windows with judging eyes thinking the same thing.

Actually, I have been, too. shog[1].gif

Despite being a fan of Christmas, I have a thing for cynical Christmas songs (I've had "Fairytale of New York" on repeat, as well).

I once had a pair of pants I had taken in a half inch too much. It bugged me every time I wore them (a year or so). Finally at work one day I bent over to pick something up and felt the pants suddenly feel very roomy. Yep, nice large rip in the ass crack area. Attempts to mend it with a borrowed sewing kit (had to ask the hottie in our Communications office) were fruitless. Fortunately I wore a longish coat that day so I was able to cover it up until I got home (5 hours later).

We were just told to go home. Had a real productive morning of sending an e-mail, making a call, and reading the NYT.

So, basically, a bit of Southern influence in areas that are contiguous to former CSA states, but not the South.

I would say that Kentucky is definitely Southern. Plantation-based economies (back in the day), the elites share the same mores/outlook as the elites in the rest of the South, grits are a major part of the local cuisine...

So I went to TSA on Thursday to get my Global Entry. They said I would have a response "in 24 to 48 hours." Still nada.

At least when I left the building on Thursday there was a dollar on the sidewalk.

I think I lost my wallet. Thought it was at the gym so I swung by this AM. Not in the cubbies where I left my stuff. I did find two pennies though.

Oh well. No one was spent any money yet.

I don't even have Pangta hey guess I'm just not "baller status."

Made a Patrick Bateman joke and the person I made it to didn't get it.
