|Fit men in wife-beaters.
Mad Scientess Jane Expat
I'm going away to San Diego for two weeks, in the middle of this glorious English winter. (My life is so hard right now. I weep for me, truly, I do.) But before I leave, I'd like to have a little celebration of my newest LJ interest, which is actually quite an old personal interest, I'd just forgotten about it until recently.
Can I get a "Hell yes!" please?
 If anyone would like to contribute to my collection of images of fit men in wife-beaters, feel free. Also, I just realized I have many unshared interests in my userinfo. If you desire explanations, ask away.
Hell yes! Oh ... um ... er
Haha! Well, perhaps you should try it yourself. You never know. The WC might fancy the HC in a WB.
So, does he count as a fit man in a wife-beater or does he have a technicolor dream penis we can't see without turning the page?
Sadly, no. Or at least, if he does, it's not on display.
The story behind that: I got really drunk at one of victorine
's parties, as usual. Somehow, I ended up sliding off a couch, giggling and waving around a 16-inch double-headed fluorescent purple dildo, while Gwen declared, "Every party needs a technicolor dream penis!"
At least, that's what I can remember of the incident.
A case where the explanation is worse than the disease, for sure.
i didn't hear the term "wife-beater" until this year (and i'm well into my 30s). to me it was always called a "tank." i thought it was a brooklyn thing, but then found out it was not, it was just a me thing.
so all these many years of life i'd gone around sans proper fashion terminology for ordinary wear.
I don't think I learned the term until college. My friend Mary had a thing for skinny guys with shaved heads in wife-beaters, and it was her pointing one out at a nightclub that finally clued me in. Heh.
i like the look, i just don't like the name "wife-beaters".
have a great time in my hometown-
wish i could get away right now!
Ah, I wish we could meet up here and go to a -berto's for some beananchiss burritos!

The word "pants" makes me giggle. So sometimes, I sing a little pants song. It goes, Pants Pants Pants, Pants Pants Pants, and then crescendoes frenetically with PantsPantsPANTS!
Thank you! It's a lovely time of year down here. Cool, sunny, great for walks. I took several yesterday.
Who is dismally straight, if I may inquire?
Me. I'm probably at most a 1.5 on the Kinsey scale. *sigh* I like women, I think they're sexy and pretty, but I don't have a lot of interest in sleeping with them. I honestly feel kind of sad about that.
h0tt gay vampire sex ? I don't get it. Also, I have added you to my friends list (i hope you don't mind)
Heh, I think I added that one when I was going through a phase of reading Buffy-related fanfic. It was mostly slash. And no, I don't mind being added. Btw, I meant to ask - how did you find me?

how i found you
I was trying to find people who have moved to London (since I'll be making the move pretty soon) to hear about their experiences.
Using Google I found a message board with a lot of people on the working holiday maker visa but they were from Malaysia (so I cannot relate to them).
Then I used LiveJournal's find users By Interest and I found your journal. Seeing that you were from the US (Trinidad has a lot of US influence) I figured I could relate, so I read up your journal and found it rather interesting. Since then I've been looking forward to hearing about your latest 'adventures' and seeing your pictures.
