    i can ask and see if she's up to do another patch if you guys want. a minimal economic contribution must be taken in consideration though.

    at the moment I just don't feel like spending money in pants. I have no perspective on my job, I have no idea when I will be able to start again working, therefore buying new jeans it's really not in the list.  thank goodness I have a massive pile of unfaded jeans to go through haha

    Cime di rapa is good. We non-Italians don't often associate Italian food with greens. When in Rome last Fall I had a puntarelle salad and that was awesome.


    Puntarelle are phenomenal, especially when someone else has to clean them. They take forever to clean and prep.

    And finally everyone gets to hear volvos sweet sweet Italian voice.

    I sent that snippet to my sister who's a chef, and was just saying her that there was a glass of oil in the pizza topping :D

    I am obsessed with cime di rapa (I think it's broccoli rabe in English?). They do to me what spinaches do to Popeye and cocaine to Diego Armando Maradona.

    I have started a garden mainly out of the purpose of growing my own cime di rapa.

    here's orecchiette with cime di rapa,


    spaghetti quadrati.


    I eat them everyday, and I panic when I'm running short. A less expensive addiction than denim, at least.

    I'd often look at them and think they looked better than mine

    clearly you don't have enough denim self-esteem then!

    Fit after 2 days



    those really look great on you Flo. Almost changed my mind on the cut after seeing your fit.

    Funny how I seem to really enjoy wearing a pair when it's more or less "done". Here's the 20s/30s tux.



  7. hey Flo, I am not a big fan of the slim 50s but damn they do look good on you. how does the low rise feel? good call on getting a 36.

    I wore my 50s for about 2 months and then just washed whenever I felt it was needed.

    It's like '28 Days Later' but the media are trying to keep a lid on things by downplaying events.

    I hope UK will arrange safety procedures soon. I have a friend who works in Covent Garden Orchestra and he just said that yesterday they played for an audience of 2500 people...

    arent you guys on quarantine???

    I am for sure Ed. How's the situation in Philipines? Here's unreal, the whole country is lockdown. We go out only to buy groceries or for health emergencies. Stay healthy people. Time for a sweatpants contest!

    good to hear your alive and kicking @volvo240thebest - and yes: the virus of ignorance is always most definitely the worst...

    keeping this as the corona thread du jour: kids at home today; a parent in our school [South London] displayed symptoms; now shut down for deep clean... 


    welcome to the club mate. I work from home (apart when performing) and the thing it's driving me nuts. We're at the end of the second week with schools shut down. My daughter is having the best time of her life apparently. She's living the dream!
