FYI Goretex-brand things (I think) and definitely patagonia, etc. "water-resistant" rainjackets/windbreakers benefit from a spin in the dryer - it re-forms the rubber seal that makes the outer coating resistant. I wash and dry mine once or twice a year.
wow, I live in a small-ish Arab city, and this movie is my life. MY LIFE. especially all the men everywhere going "hey gurl!" just replace the librarian with my tailor and/or vegetable shop guy. god, this town sucks. (except the same guy with the tray of bread every day and the flocks of sheep eating your books is kind of exciting in a boring way).
