I think Rahm having a 31" inseam is vanity sizing. No way dude is that tall.

everything about that guy is phony
i should know, considering my background and continued high standing in the denim advisory industry.

hi guys

do you ever wish you could be banned from all of ilx except for the chicago threads? i do.

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:12 (1 year ago) Permalink

no, most of ilx I find so aggrieving I hardly ever end up looking at it

Silky Slim (dan m), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:14 (1 year ago) Permalink

the problem is i get really bored at work and i have no self-control

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:15 (1 year ago) Permalink

I have never wished that. It's not too hard to avoid threads I don't like. Maybe you should just poke yourself with a thumb tack every time you enter one.

Jeff, Monday, 30 April 2012 15:16 (1 year ago) Permalink

I think the key is to stay off of the threads that people who basically ilx ~all day~ frequent

Silky Slim (dan m), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:16 (1 year ago) Permalink

also the threads where people ~do this~

Silky Slim (dan m), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:16 (1 year ago) Permalink

~like me~

I've been really enjoying clusterfuck threads these days. I honestly wish I had more time to participate in them, but damn, arguing on the internet is a huge time commitment. It's like a full time job and I already have one of those.

Jeff, Monday, 30 April 2012 15:18 (1 year ago) Permalink

i think you guys just need to post a lot more so i don't get bored enough to wander over to other threads. or i need a job that occupies more of my attention.

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:18 (1 year ago) Permalink

i have rarely gotten that aggravated, and any time i have raised a fuss i have almost immediately regretted it.

former personal denim advisor to the mayor, (La Lechera), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:20 (1 year ago) Permalink

ilx never really aggravates me, though maybe that's just because I never get very involved? It is obviously a huge time-suck though

hi guys

I feel that way right now.

I've removed more bookmarks in the last four days than I've added in the last six months.

you need my mayday playlist

Some of you downtown workers should come with me to help me choose glasses some day. The guy at my optician's place was VERRRRRY nice and VERRRRRRRRRRRRRRY!!! helpful and I need a buffer and some advices. He gave me free contacts (beyond the trial pair) and extra boxes of free solution and he said that he would give me even more free contacts when they got another pair in and then he kept showing me glasses and telling me how great I looked.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:45 (1 year ago) Permalink

ChiLX's optician is great, and that guy is nice, but he's a little much. I don't want to sound horrible, especially when he's already given me about $25 worth or free contacts.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:56 (1 year ago) Permalink

Was he flirting? Do you go to Level still?

I'll help you pick out glasses.

I'm thinking about getting contacts again, mostly because my eyes are getting worse and I think I might be able to see better with them? I just have to get better and installation and removal.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:57 (1 year ago) Permalink

i def see better with contacts

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:57 (1 year ago) Permalink

since i only wear my glasses when i'm about to go to bed, i have this physiological response where wearing my glasses makes me sleepy. i wore my glasses to work last week and i felt pleasantly sleepy all day.

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 30 April 2012 15:58 (1 year ago) Permalink

Glasses are just terrible. If it were 1988 and I wore glasses bigger than my face, they wouldn't be so bad, but today's small lenses cause such distortion.

Yes I go to L3v3l. I was not saying the name b/c that guy is going to find me. IDK if he was flirting. Maybe.

I'd love to get Lasik surgery. Even after seeing a video of the procedure;laksdf;kajlsdf. Courtney said that someone she works with or something got Lasik WITHOUT sedatives. ;__; I would absolutely not let that happen.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Monday, 30 April 2012 16:02 (1 year ago) Permalink

One of my coworkers got LASIK and has been happy (autocorrect capitalization there). She bought a Groupon!!! I would not do that. But I don't want LASIK either.

Oh she was awake for it. I don't even think they did twilight sleep or anything. Just numbing.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Monday, 30 April 2012 16:06 (1 year ago) Permalink

you have to be mostly cognizant because it takes like ten minutes and then they immediately have you read things on the wall!

Bah.

i had an idea for the weekend after my birthday, which was to reserve a rehearsal space at music garage for the entire day and invite all of my friends to drop in anytime during the day and just have a day-long jam session and record as much of it as possible. but i can't decide if this is a good idea or a terrible idea. i'm usually pretty worn out after a 2-hour music session. maybe it should just be a few hours. or maybe it shouldn't happen at all.

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 30 April 2012 16:34 (1 year ago) Permalink

You don't have to play the whole time so you might not be as tired. I think it sounds cool.

Surprised at #1, that's not far from my work. It sucks, but I wouldn't have guessed it's tops.

Silky Slim (dan m), Monday, 30 April 2012 16:52 (1 year ago) Permalink

I would do LASIK with a Groupon if it were at a place where I would normally pay full price. Why not?

It was my understanding that they give you Valium or whatever. Not like twilight, but a calming agent. I would not let anyone use a speculum to hold my eye open and then CUT OPEN A FLAP OF MY CORNEA and then shoot lasers at my eye without some sedative. No fucking way.

xps

Nick, that sounds fun.

The only one of those intersections that I ever have to deal with is Roosevelt & Canal, which is pretty congested, but I'm still surprised it's so high.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Monday, 30 April 2012 16:55 (1 year ago) Permalink

I never deal with any of those intersections, thankfully, bc all three street intersections make me anxious anyway so I would probably have a heart attack of I had to deal with any on that list.

Seems like a lot of them are adjacent to freeways.

Also only took four comments for someone to propose a straight racist reason for the high rate of accidents at these intersections.

Listening to Beethoven's greatest hits (well, a selected works comp) on headphones really helps ease the pain of my work environment. But then I'm antsy that somebody is behind me and I can't hear them.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Monday, 30 April 2012 17:23 (1 year ago) Permalink

I don't have to deal with any of those intersections now, thankfully, but I used to have to drive through that Waukegan Road/Willow one all the time and it was such a nightmare.

I bought donuts at the new donut shop that carl a. posted about. It's called Do-Rite Donuts and the donuts are ENORMOUS. Is the "Do" in "Do-Rite" supposed to rhyme with the "do" in "donuts"??

Pita Malört (Je55e), Monday, 30 April 2012 19:04 (1 year ago) Permalink

I ate a donut for lunch.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Monday, 30 April 2012 19:05 (1 year ago) Permalink

What kind?

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Monday, 30 April 2012 19:19 (1 year ago) Permalink

Carrot cake. It was very good. I also tasted a buttermilk donut. It was a little too greasy and crunchy for my liking.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Monday, 30 April 2012 19:22 (1 year ago) Permalink

I had a carrot cake doughnut once and it was okay. Buttermilk/old fashioned are my favorite kinds of doughnuts in general (after that French crullers and after that glazed) so I liked the one that Do-Rite (all day doughnut).

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Monday, 30 April 2012 19:47 (1 year ago) Permalink

someday i'm going to go to dougnut vault on my way into work. i don't even really like doughnuts that much but i am curious.

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 30 April 2012 19:56 (1 year ago) Permalink

vault?

the man at the counter was handsome and he laughed at (with) my donut decisions

Here is a tweet that I like to think about sometimes because it makes me think of jaymc. It is by twitter user @charMANdork:

"it is 2024. you wake up one morning and scream 'HOLY SHIT' your flip your desk 'I FORGOT ABOUT DRE'"

(sic)

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Monday, 30 April 2012 21:55 (1 year ago) Permalink

This is I think my favorite tweet of all time, from now suspended user @FoodNetwerk:

"Spook the HECK out of your guests this Halloween by putting dry ice into a bowl of water & then cutting your own head off and fucking it."
