Hello there,I've been watching Mad Men for a while now (partly because of the story, but mostly to steal whatever style tips I can). However, there's one thing that's been bothering me. Whenever you…Continue
"Barefoot, tank tops and shorts. I wear a shirt so I don't gross out my 10 yr old daughter. If o had a son I'd go shirtless. An elegant yet modern way to dress would be a preppy polo shirt, nice shorts or kahkis and some…"
"Exactly. Do you dress for yourself, or do you dress for others? Especially in you own house, you can do what you like. Sometimes that's sweats with at T-shirt, sometimes that's something completely extravagant. "
"I grew up in the 50's and don't remember anyone dressing at home in a suit, etc. Maybe they did in NYC but not in Virginia. I will say it was probably a little less casual than today. But anything goes for me; I'm at home, that's…"
"If you're just hanging out around the house, what's wrong with sweats and a T shirt? Some of the Mad Men style is cool, but come on. You're hanging out at home. No need to get fancy. Plus, those guys are probably always…"
"Tell that to the people who should be fixing my heating! Funny thing is that wealthy families never had a real worry about heating. It was only about the beginning of the twentieth century (higher taxes and depleting fortunes) most people living in…"
"For me I usually wear the under layer of whatever I wore that day. In the summer it's usually a t-shirt/button down/polo and jeans, in the winter it's usually corduroy pants/jeans and a sweater of some kind. I really don't…"
"Ahaah! I often wear one out of bed until I feel like showering in the weekend. In the summer only with boxers under them, in winters with an old button down shirt and soft and flimsy pants. The robe is scarlet corduroy, and was made for my (sort of)…"
"I don't know if anyone would call me a gentleman and certainly never "elegant" but I usually wear jeans and a colored t-shirt around the house. If I have company coming over I may put on a polo with nice jeans. …"
"Interesting. I know guys used to wear robes around the house (from the 1800s through to the 1950s), however now a days they've kinda gone out of fashion. I've even heard people describe house robes as being "gay", which is kinda…"
"My day consists of a wide variety of chores, some dirty work and some out-and-about. So I wear things that are functional in both because I haven't the temperament to change cloths three or four times a day. That means jeans and a decent…"
"I third that motion. I've been in the same situation. The romanticism of the past and the heartache is amplified due to the fact you haven't seen anyone else since.
time x lonliness squared = nostalgia
time x new relationship(s) squared =…"
This year we went into the mountains and cut down our own Christmas tree. This has been a fun tradition, everything from getting up @3:00am to go get the permit to getting stuck in the snow and have to rely on shovels, sweat, ingenuity, and kind strangers to get unstuck. What are some of the other Christmas traditions y'all enjoy?
"Here's what I imagine to be true.
You have a lazy part that your diligent part is pretty sick of. Because that lazy part can sabotage Mr. Diligent's finest plans of to "pick my life up, work out a lot, and change into a better…"
"Jimmy:Don't expect overnight miracles - building a body takes time, focus and consistency. The good news is that the first 6-12 months is the time when you will probably make the most dramatic gains. However, it is important to learn proper…"
This is something we all face in this life. We get lonely. We are disappointed. We fail. Sometimes others fail us. What do you do when you are truly depressed? What if it goes on a long time? Ever considered suicide? It happens all the time.
