Amsterdam and you get "As you notice it's the thunderstorm of the
century outside. All take-offs are cancelled. We don't know for how
long. Meanwhile, enjoy the non-existing refreshments"
Add the fact that I took the red-eye down here and got up 4.15 am this
morning after sleeping about 2 hrs, and you get the level of love I'm
feeling for KLM airlines right now.

Cult poster "Are You a Preppie"
Retrieved from our companys overnight apartment where it has hung (rather unappreciated) for the better part of the last 5 years.
Utter blasphemy, I didn't even knew this gem existed until yesterday.
Designed by actor Tom Shadyac while attending UVA apparently.
Now, to the shady business...
This one's printed 1979 by Greenpoint Posters, but there are facts pointing to that this poster (and similar ones covering other "themes")
was first issued as early as 1975/76, no matter what, it pre-dates the Official Preppy Handbook!
It changes the whole perspective of OPH, it's originality and the attention it got!
Dudes, this is my Watergate!
(I'll be looking over my shoulders for OCBD/TNSIL spooks performing wet jobs for Lisa Birnbach from now on...)
Anyway, here's a much sought after high res picture of the sucker, enjoy!
Very hush hush on the QT.

Since the shipping cost to sweden alone was the equivalent of 10 packs
of smokes, they better taste like sweet jesus on a popcicle.
To concernded readers (yeah right..) I want to point out that I
religiously stick to one cigarette per day.
Except when travelling (always), enjoying a good meal (breakfast,
lunch, dinner), an "espresso doppo pranzo" (2 times per day) or just a
cold brewski after work (once every two months)
I gotta get my priorities straight.

house where we go as often as we can.
Food's great, wine's cold and time has stood still for the past 40
years, and the ship yard is still in operation.
The whole place is full of old junk and treasures.
I was this close to buying the old Audi they have for sale, it's a
1959 in perfect running condition, and was for sale at 2000 USD.
I've bought vintage jeans that cost more...I'm a schmuck.
