Re: The First World Problem Thread

LiB, if you're coming to Zurich anyways, I'll take a couple of Bagels with Pastrami and Dijon mustard.

In exchange I'll take you for a spin around Regensdorf in a '71 Chevy Vandura based camper, tomorrow - I know you're a fan of fine and rare automobiles, so this is just right up your alley.

If your offer is good, ZüriRollt, he'll probably drive to France and get some.

Diesel, musty smell from harvest gold shag carpet, accent stickers nearly completely gone from UV, Wallpapered shower, leaky windows, cheap plywood floor rotted and soft in many places, covered by a layer of linoleum, pesto and sun screen. The real McCoy.

I think it's even got a beach badminton set in one of the stowage compartments!

Nope, no tassels, and no round windows either, but it does have a stick on compass on the dash. Well, at least the bit of the foot which the 5 minute epoxy saved.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I had plans on going to bed at 12 today and I really wanted to do it.
But then I remembered I've invited friends at home.
We played cards.
Now I'm going to bed at 3 :/


//I also have an exam tomorrow for which I'm like 20% ready
but let's hope for the best

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I slept in my bikini, forgot to take it off, not having an easy time to adjust to a week-day mode this morning.

And my nail varnish does not match my flipflops..quelle horreur! Made me feel a tad disheveled past few days.

I have that problem too. Maybe I should just buy the skirts anyway, cinch the waist to become a neckline and cut arm holes or something.

I've had to hike mine right up. On the plus side I have a warm belly. I could safety pin it to my bra, maybe... As it stands I look like I'm on castors.

Try it first on the coffee-table-sandals then give it a go with the castors then come back here and report...
