I got "this" for my wife while in Bhutan last month.

Anyone want to guess how much this cost?

@cicerone imposter,
It certainly didn't cost much in the way of mental effort. Are all atheist materialists as po-faced as you are ci.?

No wonder you avoid pubs.

I recently had some very tasteful erotic photos of myself taken by a professional. There's a shot, for example, where I'm doing chinups in nothing but a tank top, in front of some kind of rainforest-looking backdrop. Oh, and there's the backside shot where I'm clad in an apron and chopping beefsteak tomatoes. They guy used soft focus; each photo looks like something from a dream.

And while this spread (ha!) was not intended for anyone in particular (I may distribute them as Christmas cards to friends), I imagine your own series would make the old lady tingle!

You're welcome.


HA HA HA HA - This I gotta see! Am I on your Christmas card list? Insert one of those photos, baby!

I have no idea - looks expensive- but since you're asking- I'm guessing you got it inexpensively. A bargain - that makes it even better.

I don't know how to copy the picture of that jacket/blouse ci - but that is BEAUTIFUL! I don't know your wife - but if I were your wife - that's something I would be thrilled to get and something that'd become one of my favorite items of clothng and something I'd keep forever.

You have good taste (especially for a guy).
Impressive choice.

@aidan,
aiden, Believe it or not, that outfit cost about US$9. I was thinking of buying a whole bunch for my wife's friends at that price, but my wife keeps reminding me "don't buy anything!" The nice thing about that Bhutanese outfit is that one size fits all. Both men and women clothing has huge cuffs.

Tshetem was our tour director in Bhutan and India.

@cicerone imposter,
well - if you did get even one extra one - I'd pay you double/triple and still feel like I was getting a bargain. That's really pretty- is that darker part (I can't tell if it's black or deep red) silk? Or is it velvet or some sort of velvety material?

You like to get the girls all riled, don't you?

Beth's answer to that made me laugh though! She's tough...you better be good!

@cicerone imposter,
This is the outfit I got for my wife from Central Asia last May, but it's too small for her. (A bit more expensive too!)

I'm not sure what the outer material is made from, but it is black.

@cicerone imposter,
yeah - the other one's more my style - a little more subdued and classic - but this one's nice too - I love that cornflower blue - this is something I'd unwrap and be like, 'Wow' and to myself I'd be saying, 'hmmm, now what will I ever wear this with?' But then I think it'd grow on me- that is an amazingly beautiful blue color- the only part I'm not crazy about is the red down the front, but if you found the right trousers or skirt you could probably pull together a pretty stunning outfit - I love the paisley print part of it.

The last time I got clothes for a gift from a guy - first of all they were this really drab kind of grayish plaid color - and they were really loose-cut and looked like pajamas (kind of this organic style - which is totally not my style) and they were huge. So it was the wrong color the wrong size the wrong style - actually it looked exactly like something my granola-y sister would wear - so I just gave it to her. She loved it...

@cicerone imposter,
Just to continue the "everyone's taste is different" theme, I like the second jacket a lot more than the first. It looks like it's actually silk, (while the first one looks more like a polyester or rayon), and I love the vibrant colors. Both are more shapeless than I'd prefer and I probably wouldn't buy the second one of my own accord, but if my husband brought it back for me from a trip I'd find a way to wear it for sure. (I'd probably play off the fanciness -- a red cotton t-shirt under it, with dark jeans for example.)

Thanks for the photos, c.i.!

Come on Madame. This is 2008. That sort of stuff might have worked with the lads who had just come back from the front-line but it's a bit passe don't you think in this day and age.

Look at Elton John for an example.

Novels are out of date ci. Have you not even worked out a simple thing like that yet. No wonder you are a Darwinist. You think like a monkey. I bet you peel bananas like they do.

Mame isn't your granny bottling fruit for your winter pies you know.

These materialist atheists eh? What can you say?

You've gone too far there Becks. We might have only suspected you might be taking the piss up until that.
