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.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I was browsing the Motorola website, becoming increasingly irritated by the poor quality English.

And then I realised I was looking at the German website which Chrome was helpfully translating into English.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I'm wondering at what time of the day it's acceptable to crack open the bottle of Champagne that's been on the dining room table since my birthday...


Secondary concern: is it acceptable to drink said champagne from the bottle using a straw because I can't reach the flutes?

It's far too hot. Make champagne ice lollies and no one will know.

.. and no flutes or straws needed
