    I'm guessing the $200 one has a direct link to the ISS

    I bought the $70 one for my parents.

    it is shit.

    i think girls look awfully cute in leggings

    especially w/ a skirt/dress/oversized shirt/sweater/etc.

    i'm going to be getting a job soon, and i'm really worried that i'm going to spend all of my money on clothes and weed

    I also love ladies that wear leggings under skirts or little shorts or dresses

    I just dislike it when they wear them in lieu of pants

    It's like 4 years old and never skips a beat.

    Seriously the current generation of harmony remotes has somehow taken gigantic backwards leaps.

    fully programmable, big ole touchscreen

    probably cheaper than a dyson fan!

    (I will probably never own one of these, despite the pile of remotes on my table)

    Not gonna lie, the N7 hoodie is pretty boss. Me and another dude rock them at work, bro-sheps all the way. Just need winter to come back so I can wear it again.

    I don't like the feel of the N7 hoodie at all

    It seems a lot more stiff than hoodies I'm used to. Less stretchy and comfortable.

    You can honestly learn to drive stick after a few hours, and after a month or two you don't really notice it any more.

    I've been meaning to pick up one or two of those Harmony 1100's. I have a tv, surround, and DVR in my living room, and the same setup in my bedroom.

    Not sure if I can program it for two groups of devices or not.

    I wore leggings when I dressed up as David Bowie.

    The only thing I disliked about them was the fact I didn't have pockets for my wallet.

    It was super fun to pull them really tight though and give people a graphic outline of my junk.

    The pocket issue is one that does come up. I found one solution, a fanny-pack, but that just creates more problems.

    Problems that can not be fixed with awesome fashion accessories...

    I love skirts with pockets
    Sadly, I own only one.
    They are amazing.

    I often wear leggings in lieu of thick tights (i.e. under dresses/skirts).

    Problem is that then you end up with bare feet in your shoes, and I always try to avoid bare feet.

    So, I invested in more thick tights.

    Might I recommend this invention called socks? Sara has this thing about getting cute socks, you should talk to her.

    I get around that by almost exclusively wearing boots during winter months to hide the leggings/socks discrepancy.

  • Options
    JansonJanson Registered User regular
    Yes, boots/leggings are awesome

    Sadly, I had to throw out my two most comfortable/favourite pairs of boots. The soles were just too worn, and completely irreplaceable.

    I did manage to re-heel another pair of boots, however!

    I always manage to wear my boots down. :(

    Ooh, fortunately Aerosoles have brought the same boots back!

    They are so comfy and look so good on. Trouble is, once the soles wear through, the nature of their construction makes them impossible to re-sole :/

    I would dearly love to get a pair of frye boots because I hear they are amazing and last forever, but I'm never going to be able to justify spending $350 for a pair of shoes :(
