Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

And the mailing thing? It's Newfoundland - take any expected delivery timeframe, add a week if it has to cross a national border, and tack on another week if it's being sent here - they gotta let it sit in a 'storage facility' in Montreal first. :P Ooh, Montreal. Fancy. Any time I've sent a package...

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

Graham and Empath: Agreed, it's definitely a manufacturing problem. Once in a blue moon you can find a manufacturer's size chart listing up to 4XL in women's sizes...but I can't seem to find anywhere that will actually sell them in those sizes. It's like the extra sizes are on the chart for show, th...

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

Fangamer and Extra Credits - another two places I would like to buy shirts that don't actually carry women's shirts in sizes I can wear. I'm pretty much done with buying men's shirts, the pile of shirts I don't wear that will "someday" be modified is already far too big. I want to buy clot...

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

Sugar is toxic. Carbohydrate is rare in nature and our biology is designed to store it when we come across it. Insulin (triggered by carbohydrate) suppresses important hormones like Ghrelin and Leptin, that control hunger and satiation. Carbohydrate causes an imbalance of good and bad cholesterol a...

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

Weather forecasts are lying liars that lie. The current forecast is for a daily high of 26°C. It's now 10:30 am, and the temperature in my area of town is already above 30°C. Full hibernation mode is now in effect, and guilt cannons have been fired. Empath, I'll take your 12 - 15°C weather - that's ...

Oh, summer guilt. It's a beautiful day outside, sunny and hot, blue sky with a few fluffy white clouds...and I'm sitting inside with all the curtains closed trying to pretend that 26.4 C is "cool". I'm built for Canadian winters! I *like* cooler weather! When it's this hot outside (current...

Re: Five years ago today, Rejected WiiPlay Games premiered..

Maybe one of the Desert Bus contests should be to come up with a crafty way to use a bunch of the shirts? I'm betting you could patchwork the image together to create an entirely new scene on a quilt, for example.

Hmmmm....

Re: The Body Modification thread

Avistew, the best advice I can give other than good cleaning care is to sleep on the other side of your head until it heals up and well after. I have a helix piercing as well and like Aubergine's, mine took around a year or slightly more until it was healed enough for me to be comfortable sleeping o...

Re: Five years ago today, Rejected WiiPlay Games premiered..

Well, it was funny in the wake of the Wii video...Five years later and we've all pretty much accepted the Wii for what it is, while explaining why you're wearing a shirt depicting a prostate exam remains awkward and uncomfortable.

Even more so when the wearer is female. :?

Re: Desert Bus 6 Craft-Along

Why doesn't someone knit a giant - like, afgan-sized - version of Bump In The Night? That would be tricky considering the detail in the original art, but might be possible if it could be charted on on a grid 200-ish squares across and however many rows high. The colour palette would have to be fair...

So great to see the line up for the LRR panel, hope CCEE takes that as a sign that we all want more LRR next year. To the LRR crew and friends, thanks for another g...

Re: Cosplay Thread

Do you have access to a sewing machine? If so, start practicing on old bedsheets or shirts from the thrift store. I saw some comments via google that Imperial officer jackets look like slightly modified chef's tunics. If you can find one that's a bit large in a thrift store or somewhere cheap, you c...
