    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    In general? I don't think so. Did someone try to sell them to you that way? I buy it for the taste.

    What am I missing? I don't think I have ever found a good reason to wear Yoga pants.

    I only eat street meet 2-3 times a year, but when I do I actually prefer Rafiqi's. A tad less meat, but I like the vegetables (onions, peppers, black olives, beans, chickpeas, all on top of the lettuce and tomato .... all doused in white sauce).

    It seems like everyone says how great The Halal Guys are in comparison to the other vendors simply because of proportions while ignoring the fact that all the meat is precooked waiting in a bin. I've only ever eaten chicken over rice at any other halal food cart, and they all use the carry out styrofoam container.

    This is truth. With maybe a day or two of nice cool sunny in there (but then again maybe not)

    Is there such a thing as bad yoga pants? I contend that any bad yoga pants sighting would likely not be the pants' fault.

    Maybe we can get an expert opinion from Chip Wilson.

    I agree with this. All yoga pants are good. Problems begin when women try to put 40 lbs of ass into yoga pants with a 20 lb ass capacity.

    Will a day come on which I don't have to wear boots?

    Suede is now officially pointless in New York. It's gauche to wear in hot weather, and you can't wear it in cool weather because there's too much slush-snow-water-puddles everywhere. May as well donate all my suede shoes to Goodwill at this point.

    on a similar note, what I thought was solid pavement was instead a flooded sinkhole. Excellent commute.

    (I will note that my feet remained dry. Thanks, GDL's store!)

    I sort of dimly remember a time when I could go out without "gear." That is, a heavy suit (14 ounces or above) and then ordinary shoes would be enough against ordinary cold. Maybe an overcoat occasionally.

    But this year, it's full gear almost every day. Hat, gloves, coat, boots, scarf, umbrella.

    I am wearing suede chukkas today without problem. The slush pools aren't so deep today. Might be a different story tomorrow if we get the predicted 4-8 inch accumulation.

    I saw at least 3 men wearing (untreated) suede out in this muck today.

    Driving back from upstate last night in that snow was pretty brutal. I was happily going along at 55 until I hit Harriman. Everything slowed down to 25-40 and NJ was even worse until I got onto I-80. 2.5 hour drive ended up taking 4.5.

    Maybe about the weather, but SF RE has gone insane over the last 5 years, and really over just the last 2.

    I haven't worn proper shoes in over a month. This is bullshit. I also wore my overcoat in the last month more than I have in the last 4 years combined probably.

    I said upthread somewhere that last winter was worse. Not so sure about that any more.
