    Yeah those glasses. EEK!
    I don't like skinny lapels, but I don't understand those that are so big that you can't see the pocket square other than for the little blob that's visible disrupting the lapel sitting flush on the suit. That's next isn't it? No vis pocket squares other than by the 'texture' visible underneath the lapel?

    I'm being a bit hyperbolic and I like some of the bigger lapels, but why not alter the location of the pocket a smidge?

    I used to pay people to shine my shoes. I stopped after joining SF. I enjoy shining shoes. I'm going to break into NickP's house at night and shine his shoes. He's going to wake up one day and exclaim "who the shit shined my shoes?!" Then he's going to ask "where the fuck is my underwear?"

    On eBay, NickP. They will be on eBay

    -------

    Also, some people are raised not to hire help for domestic duties. So it isn't an issue of enjoying scrubbing toilets or being unable to pay someone else to scrub for them. Probably a bunch of other things which explain why we don't necessarily pay people to do things for us that we don't want to do for ourselves.

    Quote: Didn't see this til now. Definitely true. I believe that will change to an extent as those cultural elements will gradually disappear throughout the generations that succeed them. To an extent and for some and not for others, depending on the cultural landscape, etc. etc.

    But it's just a thinking and mindset at the heart of it all. I was raised nor accustomed to thinking as I do now, and slowly realized the potential to have more control of my time and life as I decided providing someone a job or creating a job would give me more flexibility. In the end, it's a way of operating and thinking that can be broken through/uprooted, if he/she chooses. For the record(although not comparing apples to apples), I am first generation in this country and my parents always thought it'd be some lawyer, MD/surgeon, or engineer. I went a very different route instead and did not live out the expectations many Vietnamese folks have for their kids, what with all the opportunity in this country. I'd argue it's very cultural for them(specifically Asians, but this applies to many immigrants) to push their children to do their best and work their way into the upper echelon of the income bracket to attain a status-y job/career. But like others, we don't have to adhere to certain elements of our culture.

    *I miss your old avatar. Now I have to look for your name to recognize you.
    So! how much are you starting the bid on the first pair of underwear you "acquire"?

    I'll probably change it back. I was proud of the sketch. But then Stitchy thought I used an app to do it. Which takes some of the magic away from it. So. Orwell will return soon

    Whatever makes you happy, Clags. What we say/posit/think has no bearing on that.

    It is quite good. I thought someone sketched you while you sat on a chair for 2h :3
