Yo, you know how, when you wash your jeans, they shrink a little bit and are uncomfortable and tight the first couple times you wear them?

My tummy is fucking KILLING me, seriously.  I think I'm going to die.

YES! I washed 4 pairs of jeans this weekend, and I have this one pair of Levis that I refer to as my "skinny jeans," because they're tought and they won't lie - if I gain a few pounds, they're too tight. I've been wearing them for no problem for the past few months, feeling all proud of myself for being comfortable in my skinny jeans, and then I washed them. UGH. I wore them out to brunch this weekend and then came home and changed into a different pair before continuing on to the halloween store. They were way too uncomfortable.

something of a tip
Febreeze doesn't shrink clothes. also doesn't charge you infinite quarters.

Oh, believe you me, I don't wash jeans until I absolutely have to. These jeans in particular had a schmear of something on the knee before they were washed, but I wore them -- to work -- for weeks like that. Jeans don't get washed until they are noticeably brown.

word to your tailor! I can't remember when I started wearing these kpants. I do, however, know that I hate changing pockets and shit, so I won't change kpants until I absolutely have to.

Re: something of a tip
What are kpants?

Hiccups? I can fix that. Gimme your hand.

Hey I like your fall leaves! Nice!

I know, right? I think that reading this comic gave the the hiccoughs in the first place!

Also, send me your address via email, and I will mail this ticket to you today.

First of all, you never responded to c.sandiego. Secondly, what do you mean you hung milk crates? I don't get it and I'm intrested in this milk crate development. Tertiarally, sleeping like that (in the picture of you "camping" clearly runs in the family cause I can't fall asleep unless I am exactly like that.

Well, they are milk crates from Bed Bath & Beyond, not actual genuine milk crates. Therefore, they have little holes in the bottom that are the perfect shape for a nail or screw. I nailed them up to my wall. They don't hang evenly, actually (it's hard to hold up a milk crate with your forehead!) but no one sees my bedroom closet but me, so I figure it's okay.

Email forthcoming.

So how many times can you wear jeans before you wash them? This concept has always been a little strange to me.
Oct. 12th, 2004 07:33 am (UTC)
You mean how many times do I wear my jeans before I wash them? (You CAN wear them forever, my friend). I only do laundry every 4 to 6 weeks. Each time I do laundry, I evaluate the condition of my jeans. If they're not smelly, and they do not have a brown hue to them, then they wait until the next laundry day.

What concept? Not washing your jeans every week?

i've not tired it, b/c i like the way dryer sheets make my clothes smell, but i hear that if you hang them to dry they won't shrink as much as they do when they are in the dryer. *shrug*
Oct. 12th, 2004 07:34 am (UTC)
Oh man, all these jeans were hung to dry, too! Shit, I don't know if I'd even fit into that one pair, if I had dried it in the dryer . . .
Oct. 12th, 2004 07:39 am (UTC)
Whoa, wait a minute, are you saying that you put *all* of your clothes in the drier? (The ones that don't specify otherwise, that is). Don't tiny t-shirts just get tinier? Man, you should see my apartment on Laundry Day, there are at least 20-25 shirts hanging from hangers in my shower, draped over dining room chairs, lying flat on pillows, etc etc. I thought all girls did that!

I put almost everything in the dryer, unless it specifically tells me not too. i just hate doing laundry SO much that the quicker i get it done the better. I haven't noticed anything shrinking (any more than it does the first time it gets washed) except for jeans...and those stretch back out after the first wearing. Yeah, i'm a lazy laundry dork.
Oct. 12th, 2004 07:54 am (UTC)
Yeah, it's sort of a pain in the butt, but if I don't do it, the things shrink to unwearability (I don't like my tummy showing). I've tried to buy shirts to account for it, but that never ends up working out right. I mean, who knows, I've been not-drying stuff since college, maybe by this time I could let some of the stuff go, but I don't want to risk it!

and it's working for you, so it's prolly best to keep doing it that way.

steve's a big help with the laundry (starting loands and moving them around for me) so that's nice, but between the two of us if we don't do laundry each week i get overwhelmed...and i'm lazy with laundry so i get overwhelmed every couple weeks. :)

we did a huge amount of laundry yesterday and the pair of jeans i put on this morning weren't quite dry yet, so they've stretched and dried in the weird positions my body forces them into.

i'm totally on the team of wearing something 'til it stinks, but james is religious about not rewearing shirts. but pants are okay. i don't get it. and it means that he runs out of clothes a lot sooner than i do.
