Non snap-back hats look weird on anyone that isn't a hipster or 40+ years old, and that's the honest truth.
But James... :'(

Do you think that this looks weird or hipster on me?
Pretty hipster--but in a good way. Ladies love the hipsters.
I was hipster before it was cool  8)

I was born with the umbilical cord around my neck, I'd say that's pretty hipster.
Lol.  A flesh scarf.

BTW, I found out what a 'snap back' is.  I am not pleased.

I had to read that a couple times since I usually don't see the word "have" contracted unless it is being used as an auxiliary verb. Is that not the case in Europe?

I corrected it  :)

Anyway, all my chocolate is gone.

I'd usually say "you've got chocolate" or "you have chocolate".

But what you wrote is understandable all the same.  Probably better than if I wrote Dutch.

I have a cord-type phone at my desk. Yes, we still use those. I think the cord is trying to kill me.

Usually I type something quickly, post it, reread it and then edit it for any mistakes. But someone called me and then sheenj corrected me before I could come back to correct it myself.

It's always a miracle how those things happen. If you intentionally want to make a knot like that you'll find out it's impossible.

Ugh.  Your phone looks newer than the one I have at work.  Then again, the main computer system is from 1982...

Every couple of months I have to disconnect the cord from the headset and straighten it out.

Dude, so was I. And I was breech as well. I always say I knew at that age my best months were already behind me, hence my attempt at suicide.

I've considered suing the physician who delivered me for all the psychological damage I've incurred do to his "intervention".

And really this could expand into a slew of suits once others sue him for the damage I've caused them.

I normally go for cargos, but I had rugby practice. I'm gonna change into pants once I get out of class.

Ray Cusick, who designed the Dalek robots on 'Doctor Who,' has passed away. Rest in peace.  :'(

I wish it were that simple. I have tried, but the cord has been that way for so long, it is always in a snap-ready state. It causes the handle to fly out of my hand sometimes. This really stinks if I'm talking to anyone at the time. I've asked for a new phone, but they haven't approved it yet. :)

You might be able to pick up a new cord at the dollar store. "They" might not approve, but at least you'll get their attention and maybe some action on their part.  :D

Did he see the New Paradigm models?

Also, the Daleks would be more accurately called cyborgs, not robots, because they have an organic component.

Also, I feel a bit bad for using a man's death as a platform for my pedantic nerdiness. RIP, and what not.

Everything is one.

Women are people too maybe even a superior people.

Spiritual, Jung, Buddhism, Joseph Campbell, Spiritual, Gnosticism, Elaine Pagels, Spiritual.

Women are better. Earth is a woman.

We are raping her, except Joseph Campbell, Jung, and dark skin men.

I'll send my paypal info, I look forward to your hundred pounds which should be about $5,000.
