Vintage White Jeans

Levi's even.  The kind that don't have stretchy/comfy material in them that make women feel thinner (because we can wear a smaller size because the smaller size S T R E T C H E S).

I'm one of those women.  I love my True Religions and Lucky Brand jeans.

I also love my 1992 vintage white Levi's.  Reminds me of a time in my life when Levi's still carried 37" inseam jeans (that is not a typo, my inseam is almsot 38"), still ruled the jean kingdom.  I wear them infrequently as they've gotten a little shorter, they don't feel as great as my Trues. 

Today, I had my lab final and ochem.  Knowing there were no chemicals to be used in today's lab (before our lab final), and that ochem never has a dress code, but work following ochem sort of does, I wore the white Levi's.

They go with everything (duh!).  I can dress them up, dress them down, make them fun, funky, cool, or pretty conservative and chic.

I also eat a chocolate donut every morning on my way to school/work while I suck down a 52 oz diet coke.  I'm careful, or as my son would say, I'm anal about making sure I don't spill a thing in my SUV.

Lab went well.  Exam, who knows.  Ochem went fine.  TA afterwards explained a very simple concept that I had not understood which makes all the difference in the world.  Spent maybe 1.5 hours with her.  Some 9 hours after savoring cheap donut from gas station, I arrived at work.  Dropped my purse off at my cube, draped my winter coat across the Dilbert style cube, and walked to the bathroom.

Apparently, the chocolate on the donut melts.  And when dropped unnoticed onto a warm lap ....... it stains.

My new sign:

"Did not poop my pants"
