Luckily no curley. I reach the top of the stairs and it's straight in front of me.

I have a soviet foot.

Or maybe if it was a soviet foot, it would be gone, totally. But it feels like a neanderthal robocop.

I don't understand what a Soviet foot is.

Ouchy, MC. Hope you're on the mend soon.

Well, I twisted my ankle at home and they offered to either keep me in CZ a few extra days while I am ordering a sleek light and French ski boot looking thingie or, get this horrid heavy commie thing. Damn. I bet if I accidently tripped and fell in the lake, I would drown.

Thanks, Roof, it is ok, no drama. Just miss my daily runs.

I went to do sculpting and a dog there bit through my nylons and made a giant hole.

Punk.

The fidget spinner I ordered from China still isn't here yet; The fad will be over soon and then I'll look lame

Manor. Awesomeness. I saw this there yesterday:



My FWP is that we got already a few so it makes no sense to get more..How fidgety must one be to justify one more?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

What the hell has happened to Volvo pricing? I thought I'd check to see how much a decent spec XC90 comes out at - 100k

That's 10k north of a similar spec Discovery - which scarily is the same price as a similarly specced X3 - although the X3 would have a higher fleet discount.

Luckily I was already sitting down.

My husband ordered two, and they arrived yesterday.

We have three kids.

I let you imagine the result...
