By Details. on Friday, January 9, 1998 - 02:43 pm:
    Most favored hair clip.
    Navy blue cowl-neck sweater.
    Industrial-strength bra, the one with lace.
    Jeans. White cotton panties. Green socks, ankle length. Black shoes. An air of resignation.

By R.C. on Friday, January 9, 1998 - 03:46 pm:
    Details -- what is an industrial strength bra? Is that for if you're a C-cup or bigger? Will it stop a bullet?

By Spider on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 01:21 pm:

    I'm wearing:

    These shoes (I finally got new shoes!)
    Off-white socks with monkeys on them
    Dark red cotton pants that are giving me a wedgie
    Black wool cable sweater (men's), to hide the wedgie
    Scarily vibrant turquoise turtleneck

    Hair in loose bun
    A ring on both ring fingers
    An expression that I mean to convey "I am so used to you wearing me down that at this point it amuses me"

By kazu on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 01:46 pm:

    Jeans with green belt
    red shortsleeve V neck shirt
    pale blue socks with yellow chicks on it
    a navy hooded, zip-up sweatshirt
    rings on both ring fingers

    it's like 70 degrees here.

By Nate on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 01:47 pm:

    I'm wearing:

    brooks trance running shoes

    white socks with grey heels and toes

    faded CK jeans my vietnamese girlfriend bought me (years ago, when i had a vietnamese girlfriend.)

    wife beater

    j-crew pocket t-shirt in mid-90's maroon

    olive drab longsleeve henley

    brown knit cap

    too many days of no shaving

By patrick on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 01:56 pm:

    black gap jeans no belt
    Ken Coles that look like this, except are a regular cut shoe. Which, had I seen these ankle cut, I would have bought instead

    black calvin tee shirt
    black ribbed armani sweater. the beautiful part about this dry clean only sweater is i've always worn it with an under tee so there's never been any direct armpit to sweater contact, so Im not even sure if I've ever washed it. To be sure, it doesn't smell. No. None at all. In fact, it simply has the 'good scent'....1 part me, 1 part past products, be it lotion, fragrance whatever.

    black socks.

    plaid calvin boxers.

    shit, arent i a little label whore.

    i swear, i buy what works. I could give a rats ass about labels.

By Antigone on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 02:21 pm:

    My standard uniform these days:
    Old Navy t-shirt, burnt orange with navy trim
    Old Navy painter's jeans
    Eddie Bauer sandals with black socks

    100% dressed by my girlfriend. (Except for the socks. She prefers I go without. I'd rather not get blisters and sweaty feet.)

By patrick on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 02:27 pm:

    she's dressing you?

By Antigone on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 02:44 pm:

    Well, not physically. She picked it all out. She's picky about style and I don't give a shit, so she wins.

    Somehow, though, about once a month she manages to say, "God, I hate what you're wearing!" I get to say, "Well, it's your fault..." :)

By patrick on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 02:46 pm:

    she doesnt sound that picky.

By heather on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 02:47 pm:

By Antigone on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 02:53 pm:

    Compared to me she's a fashion maven. :D

By Spider on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 03:20 pm:

    This seems as good a place as any to share this...

    I have a lock of hair, in the front by my right ear, that completely snarls up whenever it gets wet. I'm baffled by it. After I shampoo my hair, every bit of it is completely smooth... except when I touch that front lock, I find it's tangled up to the root. I don't get it. I don't blow dry my hair, I haven't dyed it in a couple years, and I always wear it up, so it's not like I'm twirling that piece of hair and fraying it or something. It's bizarre.

    But I finally found the solution -- it's called Hair Cholesterol, and it's designed for African-American hair that's been chemically relaxed. It's like the atom bomb of conditioners. So if you've got massively damaged hair, look for it -- it's orange and comes in a plastic jar.

    (Ew, that reminds me....a coworker told me how a few years ago, her hair started smelling "off" even after a shower, and then it started falling out in clumps, and it turns out there was mold in her hair! She had been in the habit of putting it up immediately after showering, so it never fully dried -- hence, the mold. Gross.)

By heather on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 03:27 pm:

    i just took my hair down.

    and gave it a little sniff for good measure. it
    smells nice.

By Nate on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 03:33 pm:

    i was watching tv for some reason and there was this girl with her hair cut just a bit above her shoulders and someone said "her hair looks so cute!" and the first thing that crossed my mind was "heather should cut her hair short."

    don't know why, but i just remembered that.

    black clogs

    light blue cotton longsleeve button-up shirt I got at a thrift store a few years ago.
    Khaki flat front pants Kazu bought me.
    polkadotted boxers Kazu got me.
    black socks that were advertised as "boot socks" but I wear them as my everyday work socks because they are comforatable and don't fall down around my ankles like other socks.
    generic black shoes.
    black belt.
    one ring and a watch and my glasses.
    a band aid over my flu shot location
    millions and millions of bacteria.

By Antigone on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 04:18 pm:

    "and don't fall down around my ankles like other socks."

    What's the brand?

    I can't find any goddamn socks that don't fall around my goddamn ankles.

    Drives me goddamn crazy.

By heazther on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 04:43 pm:

    buy ankle-length socks!

    i probably should cut my hair short
    it's just past shoulder-length now

    my friend didn't believe my real hair is
    blond-ish. i guess i pass as a redhead though
    i never thought so.

    i am also wearing two rings

    how's berkeley, nate?

By semillama on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 04:48 pm:

    I can't stand socks that don't cover my ankles! Antigone, I don't know the brand, except maybe if I guesses, they might be Haynes or something...i dunno, they came like five pairs in a package, said they were "boot socks" and they are a grayish socks I ever had! If you got good socks, you've got at least one thing going for you.

By Antigone on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 04:59 pm:

    Good socks are at least as important as a towel.

By patrick on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 05:38 pm:


    seeing as how you are (admittedly) entirely inept when it comes to fashion, you might as well go ahead and pick up those sock garters.

By Nate on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 06:00 pm:

    berkeley is awesome. i live in a huge yuppie pad with white walls and hardwood floors and a dude who cooks like a chef. i can walk around the corner and right there is gordo's with the best fucking carnitas burritos in all of northern california.

By Antigone on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 06:35 pm:

    I have seriously considered sock garters.

    However, they may make me feel too sexy.

By patrick on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 06:39 pm:



    we can't have that.

By Antigone on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 06:39 pm:

    Wouldn't be prudent.

By TBone on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 07:11 pm:

    Flannel-lined gray cargo pants that probably should be washed soon.
    A generic Long-sleeve pale green shirt with that waffle-pattern fabric like long underwear (filthy)
    A red shirt with a big 5 on it as an undershirt. Someone bought it for me and I think it might be A&F. Makes a very comfy undershirt.
    White boxers with vertical blue stripes (clean)
    Ankle socks with some brand symbol that I don't recognize.
    Garmont shoes with Vibram soles.
    Clean hair (too long)
    Small pair of glasses.

    zip up hoodies rule

By sarah on Tuesday, November 18, 2003 - 05:45 pm:

    i own 4 hoodies. one is blue fleece zip-up, one is cotton pullover, two are fuzzy sweaters.

    i have two magical pieces of clothing. one is a hand-knitted scarf and the other is one of the fuzzy hoodie sweaters, the green one with the yellow and brown stripe across the chest. the former attracts comments from strangers everywhere i go, the latter makes boys fall in love with me. i don't know why, but it does. i got it in hawaii at ross like a million years ago.

    today i'm wearing

    a black short sleeved v-neck shirt with a light brown fold-down collar.

    size small banana republic black slacks

    black clogs

    black calvin kline bra

    black victoria's secret thong underwear

    handmade earrings and necklace

By Nate on Tuesday, November 18, 2003 - 06:05 pm:

    i'm not wearing the longsleeve or the cap, and the cocks are different, but otherwise everything is just as it was yesterday.

By Nate on Tuesday, November 18, 2003 - 06:06 pm:

    and by cocks i of course mean socks. fucking jimmy carter.

By heather on Tuesday, November 18, 2003 - 06:27 pm:

    gray slacks

    black socks

    black gap skivies

By wisper on Tuesday, November 18, 2003 - 07:38 pm:

    this thread makes me giggle.
    i agree about having good socks.

    I'm wearing the same thing i always wear-
    army pants.

    I'm wearing lime green & multicoloured striped Victoria's Secret undies. I looooove Victorias's Sectret cotton undies. They are comfy from the day you buy them to the day you have to throw them our because the elastic is going going gone. These ones are almost there. I'm kindof like a stereotypical guy that way.

    I like these underwear too because they remind me of the one and only time i ever went to a Victoria's Secret store, and it was just as i had imagined it, and yet i was somehow still shocked. What can prepare you for that place?

    That was in Seattle, (this was some years ago) on the way back to the border. An hour after i went to see Kurt's house.
    Yes i did. Or the park beside Kurt's house, at least. Figured i might as well.

    So right now i'm also wearing ye olde Nirvana 'satan worshippin' motherfucker' shirt, i guess this is my Seattle outfit. I was probably wearing the same thing that day.

    were did i get this shirt? I know the licence at the bottom is for a company that went under at least before 1997.
    You know your clothes are old when you cant remember anything about how or when you got them.

    Is it bad to still wear the same things for 7-10 years?

By Lapis on Tuesday, November 18, 2003 - 08:46 pm:

    No. I have a bag that I still use that I retired from t-shirt status in '00. I got it in '93 and in the interim grew about seven inches and gained a chest.

    "Camp Silver Creek World Tour 1993"

    Mostly the same as yesterday except:
    Comfy light blue bra
    Tinkerbell muscle shirt
    Omission of dance jacket

By Antigone on Tuesday, November 18, 2003 - 08:48 pm:

    I still wear my nutsack.

By moonit on Wednesday, November 19, 2003 - 03:17 am:

    pink shirt. too big
    black paints. way too big
    wide wide belt with stars i got from torrid that i need to put more holes in, as is too big.
    purple bra
    black undies.
    three silver rings.

    ooh its almost a christmas carol.

    Threeeeeeeeeeeee silver ringss..

By Spider on Wednesday, November 19, 2003 - 09:54 am:

    Same shoes.

    Light blue socks with bumblebees on them.


    Could it be....I believe I am indeed wearing black Victoria's Secret cotton underwear. Wisper, we're, um, cousins or something.

    Black ribbed tanktop.

    Black long-sleeved button-down linen (or flax or hemp or some thick fibrous material) shirt.

    Light blue VS bra.

    Same rings.

    A silver chain around my neck from which hangs a silver crucifix, a silver St. Therese of Lisieux medal, and a set of three tiny silver medals of a cross, an anchor, and a heart (faith, hope, and charity).

    Eyeliner. Concealer. Chapstick.

    The same headache above my left eye.


    I thought about you a lot.
    I still do.
    You sat still,
    your hands clasped on your lap
    like a schoolchild.
    You were allowed to cry
    because you have been true
    to your grief.
    I saw you today
    sitting in the same way,
    the same tears on your cheeks,
    as if you had not moved
    in all these years -
    the same bad headache
    in your right eye,
    the same housefly
    trying to fertilize your lips.
    Old friend, you're a mess
    by every measure
    except the ladder of love.

    -- Leonard Cohen

By Spider on Wednesday, November 19, 2003 - 12:43 pm:

    The whole left side of my face hurts. Goddamn sinus headaches.

By TBone on Wednesday, November 19, 2003 - 06:07 pm:

    A weary expression.
    Feel better, Spider.

By wisper on Wednesday, November 19, 2003 - 07:30 pm:

    yes Spider, we are united in our undies!
    Or should i say panties, because it sounds kinky?
    What cut do you go for? I'm a bikini girl myself. Classic or the new low rise as well. I can also go for a thong or two from them... even their thongs are amazingly comfortable!
    Oh! And today i'm wearing VS cotton undies that are a blue sort-of abstract diamond snowflake pattern. I believe it was a christmas print from last year or the year before.

By Natard on Wednesday, November 19, 2003 - 07:50 pm:


By kazu on Wednesday, November 19, 2003 - 08:03 pm:

    button down shirt with brown, blue and green stripes.

    dark stretch jeans

    black boots that come just over my ankle

    one pink stripped sock, one gray striped sock

    black bra

    my last pair of clean underpants

    yes, it's that time of the year.

By wisper on Wednesday, November 19, 2003 - 08:43 pm:

    dirty underpants time of the year?

    Or do you own 323 pairs of underwear, and you have to go commando for the remaining 42 days, finally leading up to your traditional New Years Laundry Marathon?

    feel special, i had to search all over for a site to tell me how many days were left in the year!

By kazu on Wednesday, November 19, 2003 - 09:47 pm:

    yay i'm special.

    my calendar tells me that.

By wisper on Thursday, November 20, 2003 - 12:49 am:

    shut up, bitch.
    you're not answering the question!

By kazu on Thursday, November 20, 2003 - 01:08 am:

    Happy Air Your Dirty Laundry Day!

    no really, it's true

    Why can't we make a big deal out of one of these stupid holidays instead of valentine's day? I, for one, would much rather celebrate start a rumor day.

By Spider on Thursday, November 20, 2003 - 01:52 pm:

    I left early yesterday because of that hellacious headache, and I still have it today!



    Anyway, Wisper, I shudder at the "p" word, so let's say we're united in our undies. I too usually go with standard bikini cut, but I have a few of their boy-cut shorts (I think they're called) and these things that are sort of in between the regulars and the boy-cut....are those the low-rise?

    (Damn, I seriously feel like someone has punched me repeatedly in and around my left eye.)

By semillama on Thursday, November 20, 2003 - 02:02 pm:

By patrick on Thursday, November 20, 2003 - 02:08 pm:

    spider have you seen a neurologist?

By Spider on Thursday, November 20, 2003 - 02:14 pm:

    No, but I really think it's just a sinus headache. Maybe sinus + tension. Every few minutes I notice that I'm clenching the muscles in my forehead and head, and I have to remind myself to relax.

By Lapis on Thursday, November 20, 2003 - 02:36 pm:

    Green bathrobe.

By kazu on Friday, November 21, 2003 - 10:48 am:

    navy blue zip-up hoodie
    green and blue scoopneck shirt
    pale blue jeans that are way too big
    blue sneakers

    and to break up the blue, bright pink socks with bright lime green frog faces on the end by the toes and lime green pom poms on the ankles

    the other day there was a strange man-smell in my apartment, like some kind of mountainfresh man soap. I thought it was wierd, but didn't think anything of it. There weren't any men in my apartment. Then this morning after I was dressed and done my shower, I kept hearing the water dripping, too loud to be an annoying single drip, but too quiet to make me think I'd left the shower on. They just fixed my shower and I checked and sure enough, no drips. But I could still hear the shower. I thought maybe it was the person next to me but our walls aren't that thin. Then I looked in my closet, where there was a big piece of wall removed where they had to get to the pipes. I looked and I could see right down into my neighbor's shower.

By Spider on Friday, November 21, 2003 - 11:41 am:

    Ha ha! Good thing you're not creepy.

    I am wearing an honest-to-God woman's sweater today. Hooray for women's clothing! It's periwinkle (my favorite color) and soft and lightweight, and the sleeve cuffs are all stretched out.

By kazu on Friday, November 21, 2003 - 11:46 am:

    who says I'm not creepy?

    yeah, I don't think I could fake creepy if I wanted to.

    periwinkle is one of my favorite clothing colors too, it makes my eyes look bright blue.

By The Watcher on Friday, November 21, 2003 - 02:26 pm:


    For my major headaches I like advil best.

    But, I have to check with my doctors about it now. One of my new medications has a warning about asperin and advil.

    For strained muscles aleve works pretty good. But, any sort of inflamitory type of pain advil is the way to go.

By Sarah on Monday, May 2, 2005 - 12:45 am:

    jeans that are a bit too long for me

    black underwear, if I recall correctly

    red boat-necked sleeveless shirt

    red hoodie sweatshirt that reads "Established 1910 / GLACIER PARK, MONTANA" with a little graphic of the mountains

    a silver ring on my right ring finger inscribed "VIRTUTEM FORMA DECORAT"

    a silver ring on my left ring finger whose face is a dime-sized silver disk adorned with three tiny stones (topaz, amethyst, and something pink), a little etching underneath the stones that vaguely resembles flower stems, and a border of diamond-shapes around the edge of the disk

    a silver ring on my left middle finger that has three iolite (dark purplish blue) faceted oval stones side-by-side along the band

    in my head, a desire to procrastinate

    in my ears, headphones through which some Die Form song is playing (nothing like S&M-themed techno to help you write internship proposals)

    sweat pants with bleach stains.

    t-shirt that reads:

By Spider on Sunday, February 25, 2007 - 08:21 pm:

    You have tinnitus? That sucks...I'm sorry.

    The other day at the library I found a book called, "Hard-hitting Songs for Hard-hit People" -- transcribed by Pete Seeger and with a foreward by Woody Guthrie. Unfortunately, I was already carrying as many books as I could carry so I couldn't get it, but I will next time. I bet "Hard Times Are Gonna Come No More" is in there.

By droopy on Sunday, February 25, 2007 - 08:48 pm:

    i've heard of that book. i think there's an album of that name somewhere.

    the tinnitus is no big deal. i only notice it when i have nothing better to listen to.

By eri on Sunday, February 25, 2007 - 10:34 pm:

    OK, so lately I have been told that I dress like a whore and a slut and that all men are evil and look at underage girls in sexual ways because of the ways that women like me present themselves........and I'm wearing.....

    black yoga pants, mauve tank top that says "fetish" across the boobs in silver, and an oversized white/grey v neck sweatshirt, white socks and crosstrainers......

    It's 32 outside, I'm dressing warm.

By Dr Pepper on Monday, February 26, 2007 - 01:30 am:
