PS: Congrats. I'm jealous your going to Donegal. That's one area of Ireland I have yet to visit and I have heard it is beautiful. (I'm a southern man with my family, way back, coming from county Kilkenny.)
It is indeed beautiful, of the ‘nature may be rough and haggard, but darn is she stunning’ variety, mostly. I was there in 2001, but only for about two days; and I haven’t been to Gleann Cholm Cille before.

I've always wanted to visit the motherland. Post plenty of pictures (that is, if you have time to take some).

And since this thread is, as indicated by the title, dedicated solely to narcissism...here's another pic, taken by the wife (she's pictured below, just because). Also, while I'm at it, does anyone have any tips for eliminating, or at least reducing, the darkened circles around my eyes? I know I need to get more sleep, but there's got to be something else to help a bit.

The Ray Ban aviator design was already a classic DECADES before you were even *considered*, let alone born.

Just because your village saw a sudden resurgence a few years ago doesn't mean it went out of style, or that the rest of the world might not be on different cycles.

(I do think it's a little too large for your face, Calvin. But my next shades will be, too - the optical quality, light entry and comfort are the primary considerations for decent shades IMO.)

2005? Huh?

Ever since I was a kid and saw Top Gun, I needed a pair of aviators.

Now, a lifelong dream has been fulfilled.

I empathize. I've always wanted this same haircut:

Do you honestly believe I thought aviators were new a few years ago?

A regular circadian, lots of vitamin D (sunlight) and fruit and veg.

If it sounds like common sense it's because it is

At the IT University of Copenhagen? I doubt it. I don’t think Pimsleur has a set for object-oriented programming.

(Actually, I’m not quite sure what you’re referring to—the school where I regularly go, i.e., the IT University; or the ‘school’ [summer school-kinda thingy] where I’ll be taking the Irish course over the summer? I very much doubt they use Pimsleur, either, since Pimsleur is made for self-study, not school teaching.)

Actually, since you gave the answer to the real-life one yourself (get more sleep, have a regular circadian), I thought you meant as post-processing.

If you do manage to find out a way to eliminate them in real life (apart from the sleep thing), let me know, yeah—I’m trying to get rid of mine, too.

I asked that question yesterday (knowing the answer), and still only got three hours of sleep last night.

The bags are apparently here to stay, although I must say I am getting plenty of sunlight this next week because I'm going to New Orleans, then to Destin, Florida, where I'll be on the beach for three days.

Heroin.

The darkened circles around your eyes will be completely eliminated.
By the blackened circles which will displace them.

Have you always had these? That tends to be a vascular issue, not pigmentation, and often goes along with sinus issues.

I usually need a chocolate bar, juice and a comedy after I read the book. It tells the kind of reality I don't want to read about. Supposedly we were looking for some quotes the teacher was saying... Not.

I actually really want to cut my hair short, but my girlfriend says she loves the color and doesn't want me to and likes having something to run her fingers through.

Here's me and Hannah Aitchison after SIX FRAKKING HOURS of getting my crest tattooed on my arm. Note the wonderful bags under my eyes!

That's why he's gonna kill us. So we got to beat it. Yeah. Before he let's loose the marmosets on us."

Now that's some cojones, Maury. It's good to see someone who doesn't bother with tiny logos and meaningless tribal crap, that's a man's tat! I love getting a piece of that size done, it's worth it just for the endorphins alone. I still have one more session to complete my back piece, but when it's done I'll have ~24 hours invested into it.


PS. Keep it clean and don't forget the moisturizer, would suck to have it scab.

I always thought the two rail guys were the same person too. I guess they kinda look similar enough that I can continue though, except that one has MUCH better lighting in his photos than the other.

I love the U.S., but we need some time apart.
