AOL doesn't understand the interweb.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

I recently swapped out my boot cuts for straights of the skinnier variety simply because where I live, the boot cuts have just plain gone out of style.

you just get used to them after a week or so.

Realizing I have to wear my boots OVER my jeans is a pretty bracing concept. I'm like years behind on this trend anyway... women have been doing this to be fashionable for like ten years now and I'm only suddenly being forced to jump on the bandwagon. That being said, I'm not overly convinced that skinny style is appropriate for my body type (heavier thighs and hips) tends to make the legs look like sausage rolls. I'm okayish with this style now... but 45 pounds ago... hellz no that shit is NOT flattering.

If it makes you feel any better I bought a pair of skinny jeans the other week. They look like straight leg. Honestly no one has realised they're meant to be skinny except for the partner that saw them in my wardrobe (on my floor because 20something male) and the friend that was with me when I bought them.

Forever stuck with boot cut or straight leg.

You wear boots over your jeans?

Wait, you can wear boots?

My calves are just muscular/shaped enough that I can't wear any boots that extend beyond the ankle. But I generally am not bothered by it, because I don't find elevated heels to be comfortable. Athletic shoes and flats all the way.

Tried to do the two bosses before Lei Shen again in LFR, but just got Lei Shen again. Decided to stick it out, despite being valor capped. Apparently, according to my co-tank, I'm a retard for not letting every pylon get to 90%. I was following the Icy Veins approach - leave the first pylon, the one you want disabling, at around 80-90%; leave the others around 60-70%. I can't see how you can get them all to 90% and guarantee the first one is disabled, unless you let it level up. But I've not done the fight on normal, so I am not sure.

I used to think that Lei Shen wipes were the fault of tanks, but now I suspect it's often more general raid issues. You kill the boss with 6 stacks of determination, not because the tanks start playing better but because the raid performance is magnified by 30%. The 6 wipes before were usually not due to tanking mistakes.

If DPS is REALLY low I like to hold him between conduits and leave him there for a count of 15, then pull him back into the conduit. That boss usually takes so much micromanagement I almost feel like I'm raiding in BC again.

The way I've seen it done lately is charge as close as possible to full on the first pillar (the difussion one) and then the other ones to 70 as it has been mentioned, once the fourth pillar is done is drag Lei Shen to the center and eat the AOE until you push him to P2.

Well these come up to my calves and fit over pants: http://www.aldoshoes.com/ca-eng/clearan ... 5-batun/97

I've got a bunch of knee highs that are stowed away somewhere too. But yeah, I love boots.

People who get mad at me, or frustrated when I ask them to repeat themselves, yet know that I am at some degree hearing impaired. It's not a joke. It's not funny. Yeah, it's probably my fault that my hearing has suffered (HELLOOOOOOO playing in a band and saying "I don't need no fuckin' earplugs).

But dammit man. Unless you want me to

1.) Not answer you.
2.) Nod and Smile, pretend I know what you're saying, only to have no idea.
3.) give you the same attitude you gave me

Please, stop being a dick about it.

If I ask you what you said, or ask you to repeat yourself, or in a loud environment want you to look at me when you are talking, Please comply. It's not that I "can't" hear you, It's that there are points when multiple noises at the same time, or from a distance, turn to mush. I'm sure it's nerve damage of some sort, after playing 150+ shows a year for 7 years.

^^
Also, people that when asked to repeat themselves say something else (try to say it in another way) - one is not dumb because one has a hearing impairment (in my case several severe inner ear infections the first couple of years of my life) - please just repeat what you said - don't rephrase it, that just makes it even harder to find out what you said (and don't cover your mouth, I do actually lip read! even though I can't rely on lipreading alone)

I'll occasionally rock the kilt, but sadly, they frown upon the fig leaf here at work. So I rock slacks more than anything else, unless I'm at home where it pretty much immediately becomes loose pajama pants/shorts or out where it's straight-leg jeans or cargos (unless it's shorts weather, then it's pretty much always cargo shorts).

for me, it's not the legs, but the region just north of the waistband that causes fit/look issues these days ;)

funny thought of the day: why is it not just 'pant'... it's not like I'm wearing more than one. :P
