@sandzwerg yes! :) It was a large & loud crowd! :)
@Juju shit :(( You're stomach is being very unfair!
@Juju <3 glad you could see each other again after such a long time <3
@Juju sounds like bullshit! My bras are 30-50€, like hell I'm throwing them away after a few month
I've realized that sometimes I'm so "lawfully good" that it causes me to lose in #boardgames. If I for example need to feed my meeples, pay a money equivalent if I don't have enough food or get a punishment if I can't do either, I'm there figuratively standing in the kitchen, making them a nice warm meal while my opponents say whatever and... get ahead much faster. Damnit.
@Juju perfection <3
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez commented on that on birdsite and all the boomers crying in her replies "You have iPhones and get coffee from starbucks! You're not poor!" ...it's really something. Something I wish I hadn't read probably.
@SeventhMagpie true - although this was not foremost about my jeans ripping - that's annoying but sooner or later it's bound to happen, but my thighs surely speed up the process somewhat, as do other things like biking. The bigger problem is that I can't just go to a store and buy new pants.
I have one store where I MIGHT find something that's okay-ish, but overall their cuts don't fit me well.
@Juju yeah, I've went through the trouble of fixing it before too but the material all over is thinning so a) the fixed part rubs my thighs and it's unconfortable and b) it only extends the life span by a few wears, then it rips somewhere else...
Better material would be awesome!
@Kiki I hope so too! Most of their pant cuts aren't great for me, that's why I usually order the same cut of jeans online and have been doing this for years. Hope I'm lucky!
@Anke Thank you! Seems like the last one lasted 1.5 years which is above average for my thighs! I can't even remember a weight where I didn't have this problem because even when I was relatively thin for a tiny little while, I still had thick thighs rubbing through my jeans :/
My grandpa told me a story about my grandma bumping into her needlework teacher a few years after she finished school and in a side note he mentioned that it was winter and that she gave classes in different villages so she was on skiers to get from one school to the other and I can't even tell you how absurd that sounds nowadays. Now it's maybe 2-10 days of snow per year and nobody would own skiers for that, nope nope nope.
@nachdemsturm bei uns auch, aber ich hab bisher nur verloren *grummelt ein bisschen*
