Re: “The Mercury's Holiday Wish List!

I seem to recall giving you all chewing tobacco last year. But then I seem to recall being a knight at the Siege of Acre, so who knows.

Re: “The Mercury's Holiday Wish List!

I can see you guys get older with every single holiday list. I seem to recall toy helicopters and comics a few years ago... Now it's French hand brooms and a fucking Stetson?

Goddammit, Reymont. My neighbors have been working with PBOT on this for WAAAAY longer than I've been on the block. I bought the house because I'm willing to live with it as is—it's got nice, insulating windows, it's elevated, and it's got a lot of view-screening greenery—but I'd also like to encourage the activism. One, it'd be good for St. Johns as a whole; I'd enthusiastically support slowing Fessenden even if I lived somewhere else. Two, it might also slightly, externally increase my property values.

I went into the Sword and Fern today to buy one of the Osei-Duro Bogalon Bags. Apparently I wasn't hip enough to be a customer because the woman who spoke to me LIED about this write up. She told me I must be mistaken, they don't sell these bags and then sent me to a BOGUS ADDRESS ON ANKENY AND 9TH. I was perfectly willing to pay $118 for a gift for my son's signifcant other but I guess my money wasn't good enough because I am over 50!!!

Here it is Molly, I can absolutely guarantee you will do one thing in your life...get older. Hope when you do you are treated with equal coolness contempt!!

Caveat emptor on that Hitchcock Blu-ray: it had poor quality control (many of the later films are botched, including Marnie, a flat-out masterpiece IMO, which is clouded up with a snowstorm of inconsistent digital noise for most of the film). Read some reviews first before buying this thing is all I'm saying. It may be better to wait for individual releases that are coming later. Informative comments on each disc from the Sight & Sound reviewer are available at The set is also greatly overpriced (SRP $300) compared to the UK version of the set (£79 at Amazon UK) which WILL play on US blu-ray players and contains just one film less (North by Northwest).

Goddammit, Denis. Don't buy a house on a busy street and then demand that everyone start slowing down for you. It was busy before you got there! Why did you buy that house, if you wanted to live in a neighborhood? Why does everyone else have to be inconvenienced because you can't plan ahead?…

Re: “Gifts for Horny Boys (& Girls)

If you're looking for a sexy costume this Halloween season, but just don't have the time or are embarrassed to go shopping in your local costume store, However, in the light of day, things are different. You're embarrassed and feel a little silly dressing in some sexy outfit while at a big department store. The lighting is harsh, grumbling people are waiting for you to hurry up, and they give you disparaging looks when they see you holding your fantasy Fiona maid outfit. With your confidence shattered, is it time to slink away and forget about wearing anything showing off even a bit of ankle? Nonsense, then shopping for one online is definitely for you.

With the privacy of your home and the stringent security standards of all reputable online retailers, you're only problem is in trying to narrow down what you can see yourself in. Follow these simple tips to help you when buying your sexy costume online.

Know What You Want
Before actually searching for a sexy costume online, it would be a good idea to know what you want to be first. You may get overwhelmed with the sheer number of options that you will be presented with if you search for sexy costume. If you have an idea of which character you want to portray, it would be a lot easier to search for the perfect costume for you. There are so many options you can choose from.
Aside from these, it is also important that you know your size. If possible, measure the different areas of your body, such as the shoulders, the waist and the hips. Some websites include the measurements along with the sizes of the costumes that they are selling; knowing your measurements will make it less of a hassle to look for a costume that will fit you.
Look at Different Online Specialty Stores
There are different kinds of online stores that sell sexy costumes. You can check with costume shops, lingerie shops and even party shops online. Remember that not all online costume stores sell sexy adult costumes. Some online specialty stores only carry a limited selection of costumes, with limited stocks. It is important to find a costume that you want and would want to feel sexy in. The good thing about online stores is that you can usually find a full selection of sizing options online, making it the ideal choice for the really small to the really big woman. You should go through several online shops in order to find something that you actually like in a size that will fit you.
Compare Prices Before Buying
When you've found several online stores carrying the costume that you want, the next step is to compare the prices of the different items. The amount you will be spending depends on a number of factors, such as the costume you want, the pieces that make-up the costume, the accessories included, where you will be buying the costume from, and any additional shipping costs.
Check Store Policies
Before finally giving out your credit card number, it is necessary to do a quick background check on the online store you will be buying from. Check if they are a legitimate shop and read previous reviews written on them, if there are any. Also look into the company's terms and conditions. Check for any additional fees that they could charge you with, such as handling and delivery fees, and make sure they have a decent return or exchange policy, just in case the item does not fit. Remember to read the fine print!
Nowadays, there are many online stores that sell costumes. It is recommended that you shop different costume stores so that you will have a larger selection. If you want to shop conveniently, you should visit the online costume stores. The brick and mortar costumes store are usually open during the Halloween season. In addition, the brick and mortar costume stores have low inventories.
Shopping for sexy costumes online is a hassle-free way of getting the costume that you want. For a cheap and convenient solution, shop for sexy costumes online!
