Also, it occurred to me that Express could use a letter in Courier font from you, if you were so inclined.
I like their clothes, but they have this thing where people who wear a size 6 or 8 in every other store fit into size 2 or 4 in their clothes. It's a despicably false marketing technique, and I've seen people actually start to believe that their size is the Express size. They don't seem to even realize the disparity... and they tend to start shopping exclusively at Express.
Also, Express has a size 0. As if zero could be a size. Hell, they'll probably come out with negative sizes eventually.
SMDH. I think Courier font is called for in this situation.

I may have to do a letter in Courier font about women's sizing generally. Right now, I have clothes in my closet ranging from size 2 to size 8 -- and they all fit me. Some of them are from the same store, but in different sizes. I mean, what gives with that?
Also, I need to do a letter to Victoria's Secret. They finally figured out that not every woman wants to add 2 cup sizes in foam rubber. But they haven't figured out that women buying flesh-colored underwear are likely choosing that color solely because they don't want it to show through light-colored clothing -- and therefore emblazoning "PINK" across the ass in bold lettering defeats the purpose.
We're going on our first cruise in over three years, for my stepson's wedding.
I've lost 45+ pounds since our last cruise.
Daddy needs a new pair of shoes... and slacks, jeans, shirts, etc, etc.
And Christine, I'm a daily weigh-er too. It's the only way I can maintain.

This is the thread where it totally doesn't matter what the topic is. It's just one yuuuge bigley derail.
Yes. Those tricky shoemakers force me to buy new shoes ever year. Sure, they all SAY they're size 7.5, but we all know that's vanity sizing. In reality I've gone up half a size every year and I was FORCED to buy all those shoes.
I know it's been a couple of weeks since I wrote a letter in courier font, but I have something vitally important to express. Naturally, this was the only manner in which I could possibly express it.
There have been two dead bodies found in Central Park in two days. No one is sure yet what happened to them or who they are, but they'd both been floating in two different bodies of water in the park for weeks, and apparently no one noticed. Also, last week someone was stabbed to death on the street at 11 p.m. a block from my apartment, on freaking Broadway, right near a damn express subway stop, in front of a restaurant, with witnesses -- and they still haven't caught the murderer.
I was wondering if maybe any of you wanted to adopt me and give me a good home. I am semi house-trained, mostly.
So, yeah. This morning, a guy was just found a block from my house hanging from a tree in Riverside Park. They currently think it was likely suicide, but they're not sure. He was found at 7:30 in the morning. If I had run today, I would very likely have been the one to find him. I run by that tree every weekday morning (Riverside Park being closer to me than Central Park), and I tend to pay a lot of attention to my surroundings. Also, I often stop and stretch there, at that very spot, at the end of my runs. I probably won't for a while, though.
Seriously, it's just feeling like there are all of these terrible tragedies happening nearby this last week, and it's freaking me out a little.
