    Depends on the wool for me. Some I find coarse and itchy but others are super soft and I feel like I'm floating.

    I don't mind skin on wool at the extremities. But anything closer in than the knees or elbows, forget about it.

    So when are you going to introduce her to your parents Smuel?

    Your concern is touching, but don't worry - I'll still make time for your mom so she won't feel neglected.

    Good morning.

    It's been a month since anyone last said good morning in this thread.

    Good morning.

    I would like to protest this blatant favouritism.

    Good morning.

    Hey, do you remember that moment back in October 2020 when it genuinely seemed like Donald Trump might win a second term as President of the US? Crazy, huh?

    Good morning.

    One week from now we'll know.

    Good evening.

    I find I'm becoming more and more of an optimist these days, because that's all I have left.

    Besides you guys, that is.

    And my good looks, money, wit, and raw sex appeal.

    Good morning.

    You handsome devil! Stick you in a frock, I'd fucking ride you raw myself.

    Good day.

    Surely that is the greatest compliment that one man can give to another.

    Good morning.

    This post didn't age well.

    Still, now it's all over. Can you imagine what it would have been like if Trump had won? Donald Trump! As President of the US! What an absurd notion.

    Good morning.

    I posted Pie when Trump won, and so I'm posting Pie now that Trump lost.

    I understand some people on the forum may be Republican party voters, in which case you have my condolences. On the other hand, I do think Trump was particularly bad even for Republicans, doing things like withdrawing from the WHO, just as they're on the verge of eradicating Polio worldwide. I mean, come on.

    So here's to four years of reverting to the status quo, after which hopefully we'll have more status quo politicians of either party, rather than another Trump of any colour.

    Good morning.

    I have a confession.

    This is something that has been hanging over me for many years now, and it feels good to finally get it off my chest.

    The year was 2013, and an acquaintance of mine wanted to make a video where she walked around the city that we were both living in at the time, and showed off bits of it to her best friend, who was in another country, while talking about how much she missed her, etc. She had a digital video camera, which was one of those with a pop-out screen that showed you the footage as it was recording, and since I'm an obliging kind of fellow, I offered to help her film it.

    So we were out, and she started walking and talking, and being the natural artiste that I am, of course I wanted to make the footage look good, so instead of walking behind her and filming her butt, I spent most of it in front of her walking backwards, or next to her with the camera held in front of me and angled so it showed her in 3/4 profile, which of course I could see in the pop-out viewfinder.

    Not only that, but in an effort to avoid shaky cam, I was also trying to keep the camera as level as I could, while she was kept nicely in the frame. So I was walking in a "gliding" kind of way, keeping my own body level, and I imagined I also looked kind of cool doing this, although in reality it's more likely that I looked like a prat. Still, in terms of the filming I think I did a pretty good job, considering it was all unrehearsed and I'd never done anything like that before.

    Then we got back to her place and reviewed the footage, and I realised that I had shot the entire thing while holding the camera vertically.

    Good morning.
