I love the current weather! If it was 5-10 degrees warmer, I'd still be in shorts ...
Skirts and dresses all year round too. And some woolly tights.

I saw them for men, too!

That photo contains many very tasty calories!

I better go and finish my Swedish pickled herring for breakfast.

Tights mess up my leg hairs, make them all tangled. I don't like wearing them at all - which is why I'm glad that I've never been cold enough to even think about wearing thermal undergarments, as the pants are basically tights.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Yeah, I can imagine. Growing up in a place where winters get really cold, tights were a survival. One gets immune to the slight awkwardness. Jeans in -10 with no tights are a nightmare. Even for those with hairy legs. It is probably not a FWP. Frozen pants are.

Was it some kind of pasteurization experiment? Caramel making?

Sorry about the mishap..I grew up on condensed milk in a tube (like a toothpaste), we lived on it. I saw it here too.
Ahhh, yeah. Addictive. Migros was kind enough to shift it out of my regular path, my teeth are grateful.

No weather is keeping me indoors. Yesterday I put on a compression shirt and a T-shirt over it, tights with shorts over them, a little beanie and off I went on a quick 10K with 5° and wind. I don't care if it's cold or not. I'd rather run in -5° (as long as there's no ice on the road) outdoors than on the treadmill. The rain though...

Or just close it as it might be the mass of truffle pigs queuing up outside your kitchen?

That's because rich people don't drive trucks.

I don't pay for Burmester stereo system to play my music through compressed 1980s technology. I am not a savage...
