    I grabbed some white fuzzy Marriott Cancun slippers on the off-chance Spoo or someone would want them for some ambiguous beach or bathroom-related purpose. It's not Ad Rock's VW necklace or anything, but we all have to make do.

    I found another hat I liked. Mostly for the name. Its a bar called Judy's and it says "Just one More" (which is something I am sure ALL of us have said at one time)!

    Seriously That POLO! WOW.

    I'm guess that XXL Burberry measures like an XL? Right?

    I see Pucci ties going for boatloads on eBay, but also see them selling for very little. When it comes to Armadillo Zigzag it's very clear to see that the real $$$ ties are the Quindici, and from there the price slides downward with factors like age of the tie and pattern desirability. With Pucci, I can't recognize the determining factors that separate a $80 tie from a sub-$10 tie. Any Pucci fans out there care to share their knowledge?

    The Pucci I found that caused me to start investigating:

    Thanks in advance, more ties in spoiler.

    So, every store didn't allow pics of the goods unless you are Vader and i stomping at the stores in his hood. I understand that. I tried to take pics of the comme des Garçons sign on the wall when the lady stopped me. Really?! No pics of the fucking wall!? That was a mother dick!

    Congrats! That is fantastic!

    Mine are (in order) Girl, Boy, Girl, Girl, Boy. The Boys are much easier. Boys just break things. They are pods from the Planet Destructo (with apologies to Dave Barry). The girls are sweet and kind and conscientious until about 11, then hold on to your hat!
