Amazon is amazing. I admit though, I was pretty confused by the fact that the different countries version are, like, completely different sites with different log ins and lists and stuff. Interesting though.
Amazon.co.uk is amazing! I order all my stuff in Europe from them - one of the reasons I totally hate the idea of Brexit! Because with the EU Single Market you can order all you want as a private citizen across borders without tolls&tariffs - and that will be over if the UK leaves. But I'm rooting on Amazon.co.uk. opening a Amazon.ie subsidiardy because somewhere I read that their share of EU orders is indeed high enough to make a serious dent in turnover.

Tunein is a pretty good music or podcast app. You can tune into your area or places around the country. I am not sure if the free version is as good or better for smartphones ....alas I like using Tunein on my Xbox One.

You can browse and search for music or talk ....plus I can kill time and listen while I fold the laundry, lol.

I'm stumped by a simple but annoying issue: finding men's briefs is a size bigger than XL. Department stores stop at Xl. A couple of basic clothes type stores that carry bigger sizes in some items also stop at XL. I hate to shop Wal-Mart because of their labour practices, but I checked and saw a couple of packages of one basic style, but was hoping for more options.

Guys, help me out, other sources for 2XL (and up) briefs?

Costco has the 2XL in house brand and Champion.

@Tad It looks like you may have to mail order men's briefs online from a B&T outlet. For members living in New Zealand (because we have the same problem), H&H boxers and other styles of men's briefs are available in sizes up to 6XL are available at the Warehouse. When I come across a good find in larger clothes, I always share it with a photo on Facebook, for my many big friends, who have less time to shop than I do. So, here's me sharing 5XL boxers:

And my confession is that, although moved to help my fellow fat men to find good deals in clothing, I'm secretly moved to show off how big I am. The boxers in the photo are 5XL. I take 6XL in most other things but I find that buying underpants a size smaller increases belly bulge, which I like (another confession). For the same reason, I leave tags off clothes and size-marked coat hangers from menswear stores lying around. I'm just a big showoff.

I may have a reprieve to my briefs situation. A bit of power shopping disclosed that Stanfields brand run half a size bigger than Jockey and other brands (I.e. an Xl is rated for 42-44" in Stanfields, but 40-42" in jockey.). I think that should be enough to be more tolerable. So as long as I can find Stanfields and don't get bigger .... (Maybe I shouldn't have had that butter chicken poutine while I was shopping).

I'm still going to keep looking for options, to be on the safe side.

It’s one of those days where I can’t seem to do anything right. I’ll probably just research for my class and listen to Belle and Sebastian until the feeling goes away.

I'm having to work on my father's business with my narcissist-aunt while he's doing his third stint in rehab. It makes me extremely uncomfortable. She's been known to swindle family members out of money and create untold dramas. I'm getting very close to the point of walking away from this whole situation and never looking back.

I confess that I miss the old bhm/ffa board crew. We had some good years!
There are some folks from the old days I miss like Wellington and Auntie Oogle. I hope they’re still with us and are doing well.

I'm in the process of moving out of my mother's house into my own apartment. She (and my sister, whom she's closer to) are both emotionally/psychologically abusive. It's only been in the last two years or so that the Stockholm syndrome has released its grip and I've realized the situation I've been in for all my life.

This will be the first time in almost a decade that I'll be in my own. Wish me luck?
