I still stubbornly maintain that it all has a legitimate purpose, and that I'm not image conscious.

Consider are you considering your shoes clothing or accessories? I personally think good shoes are important for athletics and active jobs - I'll drop some coin on shoes to prevent injuries.

I wore $120 worth of clothing (including my sports bra), $150 shoes, and carried my iPhone 5 to grab a sandwich down the street. I often wear my workout clothes to run errands such as the grocery store or to fast food restaurants.

$500 in clothes? Damn. You are high maintenance. Makes me feel better about my own spending habits Tongue

Well... I've got multiple pairs of desert boots I wear casually because I find them more comfortable than sneakers or other normal shoes. A pair of Rockies and a pair of Bates each in the $250 range. As for the rest, I don't even dress up really. I have a bunch of 5.11 cargo pants at about $60 to $70 each. My undershirts are all Potomac Field gear, which are similar to the Under Armour tight fit shirts, except more tactically friendly because they don't melt as easy. Moisture wicking boot socks $20 per pair, American Eagle athletic boxers $20 per pair (the camo patterned ones, why I don't know :/), and the overshirts are also $60 to $70 5.11s. Yeah I like 5.11 Tongue. My boonie hat is the cheapest thing I wear.

And accessories, holy shit... I've got 3 freaking smartphones on me right now. One for personal use, one for work, and one deactivated older phone with a giant post market battery I use as sort of an imitation iPod on steroids. I can watch movies on it for a week before I need a recharge. I always carry a digital voice recorder. Oakleys with custom Molon Labe frames.

And I used to make fun of people who spent more than $30 on their wardrobe (not counting shoes). A decent salary has corrupted me Smile

Nurse - Not to knock your pun (funny!), but any guy who marries a woman for any reason in any way related to her vagina is undeserving of her, and she should figure out his reasoning in order to avoid him before leaving him is harder and more painful to do.

Um... while I applaud your sentiment I think there is a certain amount of honour in straightforward sex as a motivator for relationships. I mean, fuck, we're most of us pretty keen on it. Even if it was the primary reason I was going after a woman, I don't think it's so bad. Long as she's aware of what the deal is, she can take it or leave it.

I'm getting bored. My repressed combatant still has not responded, the fight goes unfinished.

Straight up sex, as a basis for marriage? Mmm, no. I don't think so. Not in the longerm. If that's the case, don't get married.

I didn't say relationship. I said marry. I'm not Puritan about sex in the slightest, but if you're going to propose a marriage-- a lifetime emotional bond-- sex is not a very good basis for that, and in my opinion it should be 100% about her brain, not her body, even if the body is what attracted you in the first place. Any other arrangement I have seen has not been a basis for a permanent bond, that which we call marriage. As they say in the gay marriage campaign, "hearts not parts". (I'm not just being romantic about this; there's solid neuroscience between a three-stage bonding system for sexual, romantic, and partner bonding... they are connected but not the same, and the prior stage fades and transitions into the next level. Thank you, fMRI scans.)

My Beloved is a stunner, but I would still marry her if her beautiful skin crisped in a fire. I love everything about her... even her crazy notions about magic sky-daddies.

Just got back. My dad and I just watched Terminator: Genisys at the local three-plex. Now it's time to see if Cinema Sins covered it. Goodnight, guys and gals.

For those interested in the science behind what I'm talking about, above, Nature has the article I was referencing online. Much to my surprise.

The neurobiology of pair bonding.

Works phoneline is engaged, how am I suppose to fake call in late for work when I can't get through?

Day fucking 3 of my AC being broken.

Service guy shows up sometime between noon and 3 today, so I'm working from home. It's 8 AM and it's already a sauna in the house.

I am so going to kiss this guy if he can fix this stupid AC.
