1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    I may never find Kiton. But I have a Waffle House just down the street. Little victories.

    PS: My girlfriend from college mailed me love notes during holiday breaks written on the back of Waffle House paper placemats....during breaks on her shifts. No, we didn't get married.

    ^ the tie is real, made in 90 or 91 when they were made in Spain - not a bad thing.

    .... I drink out of that coffee cup every morning.


    WH lovers such as yourself might find nothing wrong with my wife's obsession. She is a collector.

    From her blog:

    Quote: (The koozies are leftovers from our wedding. Yes, our "Welcome to Atlanta" bag for the out of town crowd included WH koozies and free waffle coupons. Spoo, I will send you as many koozies as you need [the coups have long since expired].)

    Oh yeah, her first freelance byline was a feature about Waffle House for Y'all magazine. I will only go to Waffle House on Valentine's Day and Christmas Eve. No exceptions. This does not please her.

    The Waffle House closet to my house is a total dive...still good though. Now when my wife was working in Columbus, there was a new one near the town house we rented there. Much more pleasant dining experience.

    Wow have you guys pulled in some hauls lately. I only get about one day a week to hit up the shops and haven't been doing anywhere near you guys.

    Will I be disowned if I state that I am not the biggest WH fan?

    Giant shoutout to los_face. He honestly packs more gifts for my GF than I do throughout the year. Awesome guy to deal and trade with. Hooked me up with a nice RLX athletic jacket and threw in some bonus stuff that will definitely get put to use.

    Also, Fueco, are you a giant Sharks fan? For some odd reason, a Marshalls by me had like 5 SJ Sharks scarves for sale. Hockey + Team across the country is an odd item to find its way here. I didn't look at the price but if you want me to proxy, let me know.

    I'm pretty sure you get herpes just by walking into a Waffle House. :uhoh:

    The lengths New Yorkers will go to for novelty!

    Pops up here every once in a while, Frisky. I've spotted a couple. Definitely not the one you are looking for :)

    Not even sure if it's a counterfeit—just a completely different deal. They don't copy the Borrelli branding at all.

    If anyone sees a 38R RL Rugby Tux jacket like this, please snag it for me. I have the pants and they are lonely.
