I really got a thing for leggings and gals with tights/pantyhose or other types of shear material over legs. Almost got into a fender bender checking out a hottie coed last night

Since I've lived here, I've noticed all these old Ford Crown Vics / Police Interceptors around the county painted to advertise various food products. It's obvious these aren't officially sanctioned vehicles but for the life of me I can't figure out who or why someone would go through the effort to paint the cars this way. There's probably at least dozen of them advertising things like Skittles, Mountain Dew: Typhoon, Aquafina, Coke, Hawaiian Punch, Mr. Goodbar etc. I have suspicions about a certain used car place doing it after seeing a pair on their lot but that's not enough evidence to draw any sort of conclusions.
Are those Crown Vics actually painted, or are they the stretch vinyl, Blide? We have two of the last year CVs were produced that are our PDs current fleet black-and-whites, but they aren't actually painted, they are vinyl. I've seen advertising cars around quite a bit, and remember them from the early 1980s offering VW owners a chance to advertise for COOL cigarettes then get your Beetle repainted free for MAACO.

Just stopping in to say hi and browse through a few posts between tasks. Thank goodness for my Cyburbia water cooler, and all the humor.
Tights-semi or mostly opaque, thin, full footed, can be textured or not
Fishnets (and the like)-patterned, but fully see-thru, often worn with halloween costumes or boots

your friendly, neighborhood 'burb fixer was interviewed in this month's Planning magazine article on ethics. Let the mocking commense.
slightly outing myself, but I figure anybody that wanted to could put 2 and 2 together and make the link between me and my Cyburbia profile.
"Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

My coworker forgot to go to another appointment, and the person he was supposed to meet called in looking for him. I didn't have to try real hard to overhear the conversation...coworker, "blah, blah, blah....I don't want to inconvenience you with my forgetfulness..." Really? Really? Hadn't this inconvenience already happened?
