    I am about to buy a Maurice Lacroix Calendrier Retrograde. It is the watch on the opening page of MauriceLacroix.com

    This brand has really pulled its socks up and it's Masterpiece line has some of the best under 10k watches out there. There are a number of pieces I want to own from that line.

    That would be both...I quit paying people to cut my hair when the cost per folicle started to approach $0.01. I just put on the 6mm guide and let 'er rip! Added bonus: really cuts down on prep time in the morning; I don't even own a comb anymore. [​IMG]

    and yet it ends with a wedding! ironic, eh.

    ...the characters were real close to home, for me, in spirit at least. which is both nostalgic and depressing. in a funny way.

    The enviroment and the vaguely tacky nature of the characters combined with all that '70s thrift stuff was somewhat ineffable like an Eggleston photograph.

    Sweet. 5.8GPM of flow isn't bad. Just don't run your laundry, dishes, and the bathwater at the same time. Or try and run this.

    Someone could probably write a paper discussing, comparing, and contrasting Napoleon Dynamite, Welcome to the Dollhouse, and Elephant. Something about the different ways "outsiders" deal with daily life at school.

    We had one of those in our room shower at the spa we stayed at last year. It was quite intimidating firing the sucker up, made this whooshing noise, started filling the base with water, and then bam. I think it took some skin off my back the first time.

    Cool - I actually find the closely-cut thinning look to be kind of nice and distinguished looking.
