How to roll a proper blunt?
Good day fine gents!
I've encountered a stretch of unemployment, but as I was taking a stroll the other day I volunteered to work the local election. between that and some ermegency money, I find myself with $150 to invest.
I have a $5,000 portfolio which is managed for me, but I thought, for a lark, I'd pick one stock to invest in. To speculate, as it were.
I've heard JCPenny is making a comeback, and I've been told I should also look into Facebook, Best Buy and big box retailers. Although I believe Best Buy is a load of poppycock and is heading for bankruptcy.
I'm interested in entertainemnr companies and tech companies. Maybe Wal-Mart, Disney (seems to be riding too high) Target, Sony, Walgreens, Exxon-Mobil, Verizonm, etc?
Praytell, what should I purchase with my hard-earned wages?
What should you purchase with your 150 wages? Not stocks. Buy some books and read. Invest in yourself, not in a company where your investment will likely disappear.
Yes. Either that, or a gym membership. Sound body, sound mind, after all.
Really, $150 to invest in the market is kind of like trying to buy something at Tiffany's for... well, $150. You might be able to buy something small, but in the long run the investment won't be worth it.
The gains you would make from a $150 traditional investment would be negligible. I would recommend buying and reselling things with that amount. Perhaps if you have a goodwill outlet near you (sells everything for $0.60 a pound) buy stuff there and resell online.
Good day gentlemen. On this day I wish to ask your preferred literature. While I love to indulge in a great book, I favor reading classic Gothic literature. I love books similar to Jane Eyre, and The Castle of Otranto.
Xenophon's Anabasis. All the Ancient Greek wonder, none of the Homerian overratedness.
I meant "Abelardo" Castillo. Alfredo is the football player.
Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton.
To all whom it may concern:
I consider myself a patron of the arts, and engage my mind in higher pursuits for the joy of knowledge.
I maintain my body in concert with my mind, staying well-muscled without growing boorish.
I do lounge in low company, but endeavor to be of a stately bearing in mixed company, and am gentle in speech in all places.
I argue in the traditional meaning of the word only, for I am fond of polite debate and spurn the sourly-manged dogfights of heated words.
I ask of others first, only mentioning my pastimes if their mention is sought after.
When asked, I do not ramble, brag, or spin falsehoods.
When I escort my date to various amusements or fine dining, I foot the bill discretely,
without drawing attention to the sizeable paycheque that comes from my respectable employment.
I understand that repetitive "I" statements are off-putting, but feel as though they are applicable in these words.
I am grateful for your fortitude for reading thus far.
My life is charmed, but for this one spot that mars: I am unsure if one may be a gentleman, and also a woman.

Thank you, kind reader.
I'd love it if a woman paid for my dates. Of course in the past I could have gotten them to but they didn't seem to mind when I insisted that I pay. Maybe I shouldn't insist too hard. you know some of the most powerful women in history have been gender-benders. I think a woman that could achieve a certain level of masculinity while not abandoning her femininity entirely could be excellent company
You may change your name to Sophisticated Lady, when you wish to make your sex known.
I was wondering what vehicles you gents drive.
I have been working hard and saving my money for the past few years. I was able to purchase a G37 and I am proud.
The picture is not my car but almost exactly the same.
I drive a 2004 Mercedes SLK 350, it has bumper, trim, wheels and decals for a SLK 55 AMG. It is in immaculate condition. People assume it is a 2010, they are virtually indistinguishable. Sadly, due to the current state of the economy My Business is struggling. I am sadly unable to drive a better vehicle. At least its paid for. I aspire to step up to a 2011 someday soon.
Benz-five, sah. Though I myself preferred to avoid the Daimler-Chrysler era, SLKs are a fine choice.

Dear Sophisticated Friends,
Do you have any opinions of what the best cigar for $10 or under is?
I'm fairly new to cigar smoking, but so far I prefer meduros. Have no favorite brands yet, so any opinions will be considered.
Middleton's Black and Mild Cigars, of course, raging in prices from US .59-1.50 depending on retailer. Flavored of course, and and smoke's fantastic out of a wooden tip.
I've been wanting to try cigarillos for a while now.
What are some good recommendable brands to try?
depends on what youre looking for.
Filtered cigarillos? id say Djarum
Regular cigarillos? Davidoff Mini Silver is a great choice
If you want flavoured cigarillos Acid C-Notes are probably your best bet
Fellow /class/mates, I propose we create a thread to discuss the application of proper, Queen's English within modern society. A linguistic guide for those occassions when one cannot help but mingle with the lower echelons of society. Let this thread serve as both a dictionary and translator.
Guide for use:
Statements and words used by the lower classes will be translated into porper english. Before each word or statement, there will be an "L" or "H" where "L" means Low English and "H" means High English. Low English statements and words will be followed by a definition or meaning and how one would say it in High English, the opposite will occur with High English.
Feel free to contribute.
L: You what, mate? Alt. u w0t m8
Used when a statement was not heard ot nderstood correctly. Also used as a build up to fisticuffs or an arguement (see "startin'") Translation: I do apologise, but I didn't hear you properly the first time. Could you please repeat your previous statement, good fellow?
L: Pisser, Shitter, Crapper, the John.
The low word for lavatory.
L: You startin' on me?
Starting, or in verb form "to start" is to delibrately aggitating someone to the point that fisticuffs or heated discussion ensues. Translation: Excuse me, but you are aggitating me. Is this a delibrate act to start a fight or heated discussion. If so I am more than willing to oblige.

Porper English is best.
Good day fine gents!
I was taking a stroll the other day when I came across a new fencing academy near a local park. I was immediately hypnotized by the beauty of a particularly graceful match, and it got me wondering, what other gentlemanly sports there might be out there?
And,, of course, the greatest sport of all...
Every man is what his hat says, what is your hat /class/?
Ivy cap is mine, but mine is grey.
I too have a penchant for Ivy caps. I used to have a very nice London fog one which I outgrew so now I only have this canvas one but am looking for a tweed one.
I used to own a black tirlby until a friend of mine borrowed in and crushed it all to hell by by leaving it on the floor of his room for 2 months (later I found out he did me a favor). While I mostly agree with you, I actually bought a wicker trilby last summer for going to the beach and I've actually grown quite fond of it.
surely you are pulling our legs?
For me I have an ivy cap but is plaid green and I am in the market for a plaid red one my fine gentlemen.
