A real geek would have a macbook running windows, emulating amiga, emulating c64, emulating a zx80 running pong.

You just earn geekdom too easy these days.

Now you all know he's talking completely out of his ass, right?

I'd love for anyone here to truthfully say they have operated an Altair. How's that for Geek?

yeah, i know, a_greer is talking outta his...[pause]...you mean me?

Never done Altair, but I did do RyanAir once.

Ps Macdoll, i was all set to get a macbook, but as I was coming home Sunday night, and 'Bambi' jumped out infront of my car doing 60mph and took half my car away with him to Valhalla.

Nothing like the sound of crunching bones is there?

I thought the only time that guys could buy anything in pink was if it was a gift for a girlfriend...I think that may acctually be a man-law!

And if my math is correct, based on all the guys hitting on you in this thread, Mac_doll, you could probably pick up half-a-dozen!



BTW Nice pic! finally, a chick into computers who doesnt wear thicker glasses than I do!!!

I guess you haven't seen the inside of an American Eagle, Abercrombie, Hollister, Gap, or Aeropostale lately, huh?

It's "in," but it's still wrong.

PPL who shop at those places are...let us just say... of poor judgment...or rich pocketbook.

The fact is I can look better shopping at Macys or JC pennies or, The mens warehouse for like half the cost of those stores...

By the way: Why do people spend like $50 to ADVERTISE for these crappy stores? "Look at me! I paid $50 for a 50/50 T-shirt!!! I am Hip!!! I have no confedence in myself!!!"

Those types of fashion boutiques all seem extremely strange to me for some reason. Oddly superficial.
post #252 of 631
The most sick thing that I saw in these kinds of shops was bought by a friend of mine; $80 for jeans with holes in the knees...If my girlfriend or wife (at the moment I have neither,) ever came home with that, I would cut her charge cards and take all of her cash for her own safety!

The "damaged" or "worn" look is what's in these days. I worked at Hot Topic for a year, and that's what people go for. They want the look without having to wear down, cut, or stain the jeans themselves. I like the aged look, but I'm not paying $80 for it. I get mine for under $30.

same here! want the "worn" look? just strech them in all differant directions whie you watch TV then run them through the harshest wash and dry cycle 2 or three times!


BTW: What is the deal with the hot topics in bigger malls? the one here is all dark and gothy, complete with rusted rod iron gates at the enterance, but the ones in other malls like in Indianapolis or Chicago are lit up as much as the Limited too and have these goofy looking black plastic arches...is there some reason for a "darker" more "goth" store in some places and light airy botiques in others?

That dark rusty gate style is the style at the mall in my area. Concerying the "worn" look, I personally can't stand it. I refuse to purchase anything of the sort. If I want my close to have some wear to their look I'll go out and earn it.

a_greer: Hmm.. that's too much work. Hot Topic stores tend to decorate according to the size of the mall, predicted traffic flow, and potential sales. Location is sometimes a factor as well. The one I worked in was one of the less-Gothy looking stores. I think they also like to have variety; they don't want every store to look the same.

Thank you for the compliment, and you're welcome for posting. I'd agree with the idea that things were starting to get boring around here. I'm about fed up with reading every post that might relate to something that I might encounter. This is so much more fun.

That does sound heavenly. I really want some cheessecake now. Have any of you been to The Cheesecake Factory? That is my favorite place to eat. The chocolate raspberry truffle cheesecake is amazing. This might be the best thread here. What could top the talk of cheesecake? I want some so badly right now. I just might give up my MacBook for a piece. Maybe...
