I will probably still go to the locals here on my lunch break, because I will go nuts if I don't.

What this means for the thread.....Nothing. I will continue to post pics of the backlog of items.

Don't bother...the stores here will go out of business in one week once I stop shopping.

If any of them survive you'll get a hero's welcome upon your return.

My wife and daughter's favourite band. They've even met them a few times at meet & greets. Nice girls.

I managed to pick up some tickets to The Eagles for tonight. We saw the new BBC documentary (i.e. the 3-hour commercial) and it was pretty good. The show was sold out but they opened seats just yesterday. It looks like I'll be in the same spot as Fueco: way up high and tight on the side.

By way of update, even my emails to unsuited support, noting the bandwidth/refresh issue, are bouncing....

Mainy and DM7's new venture - interesting concept.

Hey guys. Loooong time lurker here. I'll do an intro post later cuz I'm gonna be posting regularly. I'm in the field now and had a question about a couple ties? Are they real/worth a buy? The gucci is priced at $8 and the Hermes is .99 cents. If they're worth anything I'd trade them here or give them to one of the consigners.





EDIT: just found another Gucci

But for 99 cents why not take a chance? You want to see if there's a small loop of thread hanging down when you spread the fabric at the tip.

I am not sure this attempt at a sentence is a fragment or a run-on. I do know that it is incomprehensible.

Suede Chelseas? Check!
Crepe soles? Check!
Frye? Check!
Twennybux? CASH!

I'm in LUV, ell-you-vee. They fit SO fine.

Plato's Closet of all places! I go to the haircut store and register. Twenty minute wait so I tell them I'll be back in fifteen and stroll down the shopping center a few doors and pick through racks of Aeropostale, A&E and Old Navy to find the occasional gem.

They had a wall full of Timberlands starting at $25 and going up to $50 but the Fryes were just sitting out on the rack with the rest of the Nikes and other assorted crap! Amazing.

HAHA I was baffled by it as well, I think I know what he is saying but it's really just a guess. Those college parties are wasting away this poor young mans literacy skills. Actually I am guessing he is like my two sons who write like they are texting. But to be fair Ian is probably writing this on his iPhone and couldn't care less about punctuation.

Or, he dropped his iPhone and chooses not to use punctuation for fear of cutting his fingers on the shattered screen. Of course, if he has an iPhone, a simple double space inserts a period. I personally like using the voice to text feature on the iPhone 5. It really translates incorrectly into some funny things at times.
