Re: Petty annoyances

Two sets of doors are only as modern as climate control, so there's no fancy word for it. I would say vestibule because that's where you would don or doff your outer layers, in New England we call it a mud room. The foyer sits inside the front door and is a space where you can receive people without...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

Re: You Learn Something New Every Day

I believe that's called the Kennedy Roll, and I use it all the time to dress down a dress shirt. I have a couple Calvin Klein checked shirts with sleeve tabs like that, I like them. It reminds me of tying back my sleeves before archery or a kenjutsu form.

Give it a couple years until it's more mainstream, then the two of you should take a guided psychedelic experience. One and done, professional guidance, no stigma about 'being a user', no hangover.

Granite just hops onto the bed and carefully pokes my forehead with one claw and murps at me. The murping is cute. The needling is horrific enough that I'll get out of bed at 5am to stop it.

If Jones isn't claiming to have private knowledge, this is all pretty clearly his opinion. I don't think that the plaintiffs have a case, even if Jones is a big fat liar who I'd love to see crash and burn.
