    I did receive a compliment on my Leonard Paris tie (which is not fictional but true). The person said "I love your tie! Are those poppies? Oh no, they are roses!"

    At the risk of sounding completely douchey, compliments on my attire do not make me feel as elated anymore because.. well.. I know I'm dressed well already.

    Does anyone else feel this way, too?

    I know what you mean. I appreciate the compliments not because I am happy to know that a person judged me well. I am confident in my ability to dress well, and so I don't typically need reinforcement from others. But it does make me happy that a person would go out of her way to say something kind to me. In other words, it's not so much the content of the judgment that makes me happy as the gesture itself.

    Nah. I still like the compliments. It's nice to have it acknowledged, even if I'm pretty sure I've chosen well.

    I had one day recently where I got a couple of compliments back to back, and I'd be lying if I said it didn't make me feel good. They were especially nice because it wasn't someone I knew, or even talked to. On two different elevator rides, women on each looked me over and said something along the lines of, "wow, you are really well dressed." Definitely made me feel :bigstar:.


    This is a nice way to think of it, as well. I like that logic.

    i think what would really make me feel amazing is if a hot, stylish milf complimented my outfit.


    mmmmmmmm....:bigstar:

    Nailed a three-hour interview with JP Morgan Chase today. I'm expecting an offer to be forthcoming.

    What isn't making me happy is that I am helping a very well-to-do friend get a new VC off the ground. He wants me to work for him and have an equity state in the company but that won't happen until the funding is in place--probably in January. He offered to pay me out of pocket till then, but that just feels weird. I have just spent most of my money purchasing a house and moving. I have bills and I am recently married so I need some sort of income till January. I would love to work for my friend and have the personal mentorship that he would offer but I also need a reasonable income...

    Having a blast in PDX revisiting old stomping grounds (Mary's Club, Paddy's, The Lutz) at night and meeting customers for a few hours during the day.

    Only a few of my friends here are retired, all at the typical age.

    I haven't had time to do some chores and stuff lately, and yesterday afternoon I had a couple of hours to spare so I was finally able to buy new socks and underwear from uniqlo and even had time to pass by the grocery and get myself a couple of bottles of chinese chili bamboo shoots which i like to mix with my scrambled eggs. so today I'm happy I have new socks and u/w and bamboo shoots.

    ^ not sure if uniqlo made those but I saw some in the past... I am a fan of their airism line of u/w (except that the fabric has a sheen)... they're supposed to minimize the swamp ass phenomenon.

    It was the middle of the 1980s--1986, I think--that the cereal called Oh!s came onto the market. I remember it being quite a big deal (always been a cereal aficionado). Well, I bought a couple of boxes of Oh!s just the other day and I realized that their logo has remained unchanged the whole time. The cereal itself, which once seemed so new, opening up a world of cereal possibilities, now comes off as a bit dated, sort of like Drakkar Noir in the world of fragrance. Still, I've been happy to renew acquaintances with Oh!s recently.

    What did I miss.


    Emo bitch.


    Your parents are so proud of their "adult" "son".




    I know you guys are probably trying to get some separation from the work world but seriously... if you have any new smartphones, just use those. Almost every pro photog I talk to (a large number) says they don't even use PS cameras anymore. Its DSLR or phone.



    I'm doing that to her too!


    They need fresh water and stems trimmed an inch.


    Why start now?

    My practice GMAT scores have all been above the average admit score for the school I'm applying to.

    I have adopted the strategy of preemption with regard to the classical pronunciation of Latin. When I hear someone using the classical pronunciation, I condescendingly interrupt them to say such as "Umm excuse me, that's a soft g." Why do I do that? Because I know with near perfect certainty that the person who uses the classical pronunciation would have condescendingly "corrected" my ecclesiastical pronunciation, and so I just beat him to the punch. Makes me feel good to accomplish that deed.
