    Good for you brother.

    Take a page from my book, get the boss drunk, fuck his wide or daughter, kick his dog and smack him on the ass and say thanks fella.
    Shows initiative and a go getter attitude.

    Anybody hear from @Pchop yet? Did he survive the night in sub 70 temperature? Wonder how much of his work force survived? He is probably really grateful his work is not in the pour concrete stage. Fumbling the laser pointer with hand coats on can be a real bitch.

    Believe it or not... I've got those exact house shoes. They are like sleeping bags for your feet. Best house shoes I've ever bought for winter.

    And yes, those are North Face Sweat Pants I'm wearing also. Like I said... Most everything I own is The North Face.


    Yeah he's fine. Stayed up playing this until 2am last night. This is from my point of view.

    They are the best house shoes I've ever bought. You will love them.

    These are the ones that I have. The have changed colors it looks like but they are the same shoes. You won't regret it. Like I said... they are like sleeping bags for your feet lol. And they are waterproof.

    *EDIT* Don't pay $124 or whatever it says. I think I paid around $50 for them.

    I respectfully present formidable competition. I can stand in the kitchen for hours with no knee and back pain. Soooooo comfy!

    Yep. I'm usually in socks in the house now - but I also have a pair for when I'm barefoot (they're not fuzzy). They get bashed on, but I have yet to find something that supports the arch and distributes weight throughout the show like a Croc.

    It's like the years of abuse and bad decisions just melt away....

    Rubber with grips. I'm sure they make them for women also.
