I don't think I've seen a pair of those since the 80s, unless you count the paper ones they give you in hospitals.

They are all on sale in Benidorm. Ranks of stalls selling mums/grandmas pants and string vests. I think they must be required if you use a mobility scooter tot get from pub to pub. As one does here.

Thinking of which, why is it that ladies undies (in shapes I want to buy ie full brief at my age, keeps the lower back nice'n'cosy) only come in (i) pastel (ii) stupid patterns, usually also floral or (iii) plain black.  What about a nice darkish grey that is forgiving of many washes?

Amateur.  A single washload of pastel pants with a black sock gives a one-stop answer to your problem.

Oh, shit.  Well, I suppose the upside is that nobody's going to murder me at work.  And I don't go out very often.

Surely that's how plain black end up after a while?

Black socks, of course, do that 50 shades of grey thing.


The real question is why sensible non-frilly black bras are so often only available in pairs with a white-until-you-wash-it one.

I wonder what happened to those knickers that were issued to middle-aged women as standard uniform on your fiftieth birthday.  You never see them any more.  They were made of this kind of aertex stuff, and they were proper knickers that go up to your waist and cover your bum properly.  They came only in white.

Like this.
A friend is currently in Lesbos, sorting clothes for refugees. She was rummaging through vast piles of donated stuff, new and second hand, trying to find knickers.

After fruitless hours, the only knickers she found were bloomers. Real bloomers.

(for those who are curious, the knicker shortage seems to sorted for now. Seems when people nick one pair out of a box in a supermarket, the supermarket throws the box away. A contact has arranged for the boxes to be donated instead and it is a LOT)

Brilliant.

At my former work, we had a facility in Odessa, TX, USA.
I had to go there fairly often.

Then we out-sourced our corporate travel to Amex Corporate Travel.
Next time I had to go, they had arranged flights to Odessa, Ukraine.

It did get spotted in time!

I've been to Odessa texas. Ukraine may have been better.

There was also the story of those who went to Albertville in the USA instead of France for the winter games. It never snows there.

I used to live in Athens, Georgia. And I've been to Memphis Tennessee (I'm sitting in Nashville right now).

I'm convinced there's no good reason to go to Texas ever.

Ok, Austin and San Antonio aren't so bad. Dallas and Houston? Hell can only disappoint.

TX's Big Bend National Park is jolly nice as long as you avoid:
  • the tail end of a Pacific hurricane, and/or
  • the taranshula season
I quite liked Amarillo too, until my right foot decided to stop working while staying there.  The Road to Amarillo sucked though, coz I got stopped for speeding :(

I shall be returning to TX on this year's expedition to the west pole[/i] USAnia.  Route 66 beckons.

I do occasionally get mistaken for Michael Stipe.

Despite laying out several peanut butter bacon traps this year's Elvis hunt was a wash out.  The south ain't what she used to be.
