Are you "James Bond" or "Gangsta" or ??? - Page 2

post #31 of 48
"gansta" = fad/fashion/trend

"James Bond" = fiction

I guess if all the world is a stage, you may as well dress as what you imagine yourself to be in a grandiose fantasy, eh?

I prefer to buy stuff that is very functional and it probably renders me nondescript.

BFD.

Hmmmm... I think I'd agree. Intelligent, witty, great company, and gung-ho about life. A great combination!

And Bond turns to the girl and says "He had a lot of guts"

As far as I'm concerned, skiing and ski clothes are not what come to my mind when I think of Bond.


But that's just me.

I think this falls under "Or ???"



Perhaps "redneck?" :

Ah, Tanner is harmless - he's like a universal little brother type. And he's a much better skier than any of the Bonds, though far from Hugo and Ingrid and Seth and Mike Douglas and Eric Hjorleifson and Mark Abma...at least regarding big mountain skiing.

I used to emulate the Crazy Canucks,
then Herman Maier,
now... I guess it would be...Hugo (Harrison) and Ingrid (Backstrom) and Seth (Morrison) and Mike Douglas and Eric Hjorleifson and Mark Abma.

A couple of weeks ago I was on a trail at Whistler and as I came around a corner I encountered a young guy I though was Japanese wearing a huge cowboy hat.

It was the size of those novelty foam cowboy hats but it looked to be a well-made real hat. And it was blood red.

And he was skiing alone, that was the best part. What a character he must be.

A lot of the young Japanese guys and girls at Whistler wear really cool-looking stuff...purchased in Japan I guess, 'cause I don't see that stuff in shops in North America.

Cheers,

Just so everyone knows it, Camilla Sparv was a Swede masquerading as a Teuton.

Not sure about Redford's origins...

Oh, and for the record, I look more like the guys from the Capital One commercial while going down the hill...

Speaking of things Japanese, how about Harajuku style on skis???







Oh, I forgot, it's been done...




Now, speaking of vandals, that's my idea of style...

My skiing style

Edit: I see my pic is no longer available. I guess that's what you get for copying off a googled site on the internet .
It was a picture of Animal from Sesamie Street.

Yes, but I find it much better if you don't have to live there.

Agreed! Very hard for a vegetarian to eat there, too.
I'd prefer Hong Kong to live - and to eat!
