One term in fitting really baffles me: true to size. What does that even mean?

It dimensionally correct within the specified tolerances of whatever we arbitrarily define as S, M or L (etc, etc)

 

Totally meaningless in other words!

I had a minor argument with my brother on the telephone last night. It made me a bit upset, and then I snapped at my wife. Raised my voice about some minor indiscretion of hers involving a kitchen appliance.

 

This upset her sufficiently to bring tears. She sobbed for a while in another room until I came over and said sorry and gave her a hug.

 

Now, if I were a real asshole, I suppose I might have hit her. But raising my voice was bad enough I guess.

 

There's violence, and there's violence. None of it is excusable. I felt like a real heel.

Suffer you Bastard!

As for women the other day Mrs GF came with me when I went to get a pair of beater hiking shoes. So we are in there and the saleswoman says loudly that if you buy two pairs you save XY on them. My bloke radar should have realised I was being set up but no the Farce is strong in my family.The next minute before I had the left shoe on she is back with a pair of shoes for 'Work" yeah right. She tries them on and says what do you think? Some how my plastic's cry of No was lost in the ether. So I walk out my plastic lighter than what I intended. I ask my self how does this happens? I have yet to find an answer.

Worse last night she had a ticket to the schools formal and she appropriates my TF Noir de Noir, I have a hard enough time hiding that from my son. As I said the Farce is strong in my family.

Thankfully the gin (4) is in the freezer, the ice trays are full the tonic is chilled and i have a 5pm deadline to meet.

Bro rice is important to us Asians.

Our rice cooker lacks a master "on-off" switch. So it has to be unplugged or switched off at the socket. Now, if it's sharing that socket with another device via a double adaptor, and you switch it off at the wall, then what happens? That's right. The other device loses power.

 

'nuff said. Back to normal programming!

Just unplug the rice cooker leaving the other drive plugged in?

Domestic arguments are always about power.

Hey guys, gonna be in Tokyo for a few days in early December. Any recommendations on second-hand/op-shop/recycle stores to check out with shoes, clothes or accessories?
