@crocuta i work with almost all 20-something guys and the general air when i started was jeans and sweatshirts. I have always put a lot into my outfits, and didnt stop at work. I just teased everyone else about how shlubby they looked and lo and behold, the dress standard actually did slowly get better. We're a small office, but still. I was pretty happy about it.
@steponitvelma I did this thing also! I put it next to bed which....can be unnerving, at times.
@jen325 Yeah that made me pretty pissed. That and the reference to "hipster homemakers" makes it sound like Jolie is doting on a bunch of over-grown children which.....not at all accurate, you jerks? We are trying to be cleaner(/better?) people. Don't judge!
@yeah-elle I certainly relate to this, and its so good to hear other people say so! I moved and traveled across many continents with my family while I was growing up, and now that I am an "adult" (not really) all I want is to have this stable, routine-based home. Traveling makes me so anxious -- I don't think of it as an "adventure" it's just nerve-wracking.
I'm not hating on traveling, by the way. Just that for me, it is done. Chicago is all I need, thank you.
@Kivrin ....am I creeper because I am in fact completely and absolutely obsessed with clusters of holes? Is there a word for that?
@ejcsanfran this image just made me Laugh Alone With Salad.
....at a cat story. eghhh.
GUYS. The War Horse by the Handspring Puppet company is the prettiest most amazing thing ever. Just sayin. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-bni4QqSv4
@redheadedandcrazy Oh! I feel for you! I am maybe three steps behind you though? They are about to break up. And I am all...to mediate or not to mediate? But the sneaking around and the plans and the lonely dancing...agh. Its a sad place.
ohmygoodness I....I think this is my mother. Edna? Are you my mom?
@ormaisonogrande Ahhh I feel your pain with the long legs and small torso. Difficult lives! But also I believe (not 100%) that the standard for Zara and a lot of other European stores is to make their jeans with a super long inseam because it is expected that you will get it tailored to your required length. This is just from spending all of my travel money on shopping while in Barcelona and London (and now I am so broke ahhhh), and not any sort of concrete research. So, maybe that's whats up (and also why those of long legs will <3 Zara forevers)
