@squishybrain although I live in the heart of Hollywood (I mean, I got to see a bomb robot rolling down the street today… that’s some fine city living), I grew up further east (shout out to my homies in the San Gabriel valley) and can survive all the way down into the 60s.
You know what the word Pashmina reminds me of…
The Panama Papers, yeah they are some bad corrupt SOB’s hiding money. I was going to say it’s probably the PA in front.
So I have been writing About the papers for aWhile now with little response, So I was thinking In order to kill two birds because Meh is definitely into murdering all things with feathers… (I was proud of myself for that Segway so deal with it)…they should manufacture Meh face popsockets in Panama and put the secretary of Mossack Fonseca on the Meh board for a day because she needs to get to 11,000 board of directors of companies she didn’t know existed. 10,998 is shameful got to get improve that Guiness record.
My sister got me a scarf for Xmas. Which is nice, cuz the week before I had looked for my scarf (I had one, I swear) and it was not findable. And now I’m pro-scarf! But I need way more information before plunking down 8 hard-won American dollars. What is Pashmina? Is she in a band? If so, does that band basically only do covers of Led Zeppelin’s toe-tapper, “Kashmir”? Would Robert Plant ever get caught dead wearing a scarf? How about an $8 scarf? I have more questions than answers, Meh. Meh.
Also I know I sound snobby, but I’m a weaver and a knitter and spinner, so I kinda do get snobby about scarves. That’s like the one thing, other than a really good coat, I spent a bit of money on after making do with a $29 peacoat from Old Navy and a cheap cotton/rayon from viscose scarf for years in subzero temps until I saved enough back for a decent heavy-wool full length coat and fiber to make my scarf, gloves and hat. It’s literally what keeps me alive in the winter, walking around in the midwest.
@dino2269 Unlikely. I grew up in the deep south and still needed more than a fashion scarf to actually stay warm. This is more of an accessory along the lines of the fashion scarves you pick up at Target year-round out of the jewelry/handbag section. They’re kinda pretty?
Viscose fabric is a soft and lightweight fabric manufactured from a plant-based material called cellulose. Viscose is typically made from woody plants, such as trees and bamboo. Viscose is part of the rayon family of fabrics, all of which are made from cellulose. Viscose is a low-cost fabric and has …

Good price. I would get but I’ve bought my wife several scarves over the years… Silk, cashmere… I’ve never seen her wear one I bought… Only an old ratty red one she’s had over 20 years from before we wed.
I think scarves are one of those things that people buy but never wear.
@medz@RiotDemon What this reminded me of, I’m afraid, was a package from someone on eBay who had enclosed some Bible stuff with an item I bought. It’s just that I don’t expect such stuff to accompany your average commercial transaction. And I also thought about the idea of buying this as a gift.
@gertiestn@RiotDemon Right. Finding out a company has religious “values” is one thing. Putting in on the actual product is whole different ballgame. Especially when it’s not visible in the sale photos and not mentioned in any capacity.
