    I'm ordering a couple of the new Everlane OCBDs to check them out. $55 each, free shipping with purchase of 2 or more items. Sweet deal.


    Exactly. Sorry to hear about the tire!

    I had a fucking great Halloween. Unlike Piob's ghetto, we gate off our streets to traffic for one evening per year and embrace the chaos of literally thousands of kids and parents descending upon us. I gave away 200 pieces of candy, one per child, in under an hour, and we live on the quieter end of the street. A neighbor down the street gave away 1500 pieces, again one per child, over the course of the evening.

    I had some really great interactions with kids, parents, sexy moms and French people. I felt like an integral part of a true community, and while there were a couple of parents and teens with too much of an entitled attitude, they were a very small minority and were more than made up for by everybody else. When my wife got back from work we walked down the street, greeting friends and neighbors along the way, to our friend's annual open house. Since we moved last year (to the other end of a 5 block street, ha!), we haven't seen as much of our old neighbors as we'd like, so it was a great chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones. I discovered a mutual love of fireworks with an older psychotherapist / neighbor whom I'm never met previously, so I'm looking forward to good times in the future with my new friend!

    The only reasonable place to celebrate Halloween is at a strip club. It's truly the one night of the year that's definitely worth going.

    Sadly, I could not last night as I had much drinking and work to get done.

    I always knew there was a reason I liked you.

    We went to a party down the street for a couple of hours. I'm not going to lie. I was looking at a slutty cop's boobies.

    Edit: to make this pissed off: I did not get to touch said boobies and I was unable to stay out late and party due to work today. :(

    I agree, but in a perfect world, boobies would have been touched!

    I'm really sad for the Breezy Point, Fort Tilden, Rockaway Parkway communities that got hit HARD by Sandy.

    That area is a bit of an underutilized secret for NYC people, it has huge beaches, sand dunes, great biking, and a vibrant Italian American Community (lots of good eats) and only 30min away by car.

    The week before the storm the wife and I took the puppy down there and before you know it the dog was going over and over those fucking 10 foot sand dunes.

    seeing those houses/buildings on fire on the TV from a hotel room in Connecticut was horrifying.

    also the fucking lowlifes who have been masquerading around as electric company employees and robbing people in my area need to be hung from powerlines they pretend to fix.

    That sounds like an awesome Halloween! One year, in the old neighborhood, we had a Halloween party the prior weekend for the Mrs. work-mates and had a lot of beer. Some was left over so we handed that out to parents on Halloween evening.

    Also, let me know how you like the Everlane shirts, PLZ.


    I last wore BB seriously in '96 or so. Then they shut down the store on McKinney where I knew a few of the reps by name. Then there was a dry spell where I had no more need for shirts, this might have been a decade or so - and around this time the only BB nearby was an outlet store in a big outlet mall. They opened a store in the Galleria but despite the grandeur it's still a fucking mall store. I'll hit up the Chanel boutique and NM, though, on the occasion I must be in the neighborhood.

    As for BB OCBD, at the time - for some reason their OCBDs at the time were awfully thin and not well-tailored when compared to their pinpoint shirts, or the RL OCBDs. I just really disliked them. Wore two of them out, went to RL, and never looked back.

    Oh, and I usually do ship to the office but decided not to for reasons I can't put my finger on. Oh, that's right - my last shipment of sparkly thong underwear arrived with the package torn. Can't trust the gorillas that handle the mail around my office.

    Come on, everybody knows that married people can't touch boobies and college graduates can't have their penises licked. Why do you think married college graduates are so unhappy?

    Oh, and not for the first time I wish that we had Halloween dress-up more than just once a year. I rather like cleavage and buccaneer boots and lusty wenches and all that. I'd certainly be happier and we might finally be rid of that Gender Equality nonsense that keeps cropping up.

    I like the BB OCBDs I have. They are pretty nice and the slim fit is decent for me...would prefer a bit more taper (but the extra slim fit is actually less tapered since they tighten up the chest) but maybe it would work for you. Pretty sure the current slim cut is very different than anything they had when you were trying them.

    Also the BB Black Fleece OCBD I have is awesome. The sizing is not quite right for me since they don't have length choices, but as a casual shirt, it is super well made and detailed.

    The BB OCBD is one of their dwindling number of shirts still made in the USA. I have many of them and they are well made.

    I walked the dog around 6 p.m. and was surprised at all the trick-or-treaters. Lots of folks and kids, but none at my house - we don't do Halloween.
