Jean Genie

The Jean Genie has granted us a wish today.

A call from Tracey's sister had us clued up on a jean sale at Jeans West. Tracey picked up six pairs of jeans (3 pair for each of us) worth a combined $550 at regular retail for only $110. 

In Beerenomics that's 10 cartons of beer! 

Mine were all $20 each, as were two of Tracey's. The third of hers was only $10.

With colder weather only a couple of months away I think we'll get a lot of use out of these shortly.

While I'm on the subject of jeans, can anyone tell me why we say a pair of jeans when they're clearly in one piece? 

Sale is 50% off already reduced sale jeans - savings up to $80 up for grabs. Plus they also have $20 off new season styles this week.

And with this $440 saving (on top of the fantastic Best & Less sale today where we saved $360) we've saved enough for nearly 20 cartons of beer. Not that I'd want to spend it all on me - maybe Tracey can buy herself a nice latte or something ;) 

Even though I'll be lucky to see one whole carton our of this, I think it's going to be a great weekend. Might have to spend some of that money on Panadol though.

If you're a jean wearing sort of guy or gal it's time to "let yourself go" to Jeans West to quickly snap up a bargain.

Pretty sure it's because pair of pantS use to be 2 separate legs and would be laced together at the top when dressing (check out some costumes in BBC's Robin Hood)... There's one of my pant legs, where is the other pant leg? so to speak... and a pair of jeanS have only followed suit. UnderpantS go under the 2 pant legs so they also score the plural of the original 2 separate pant legs... and because it's been like it for so long, you'd have friends giving you odd looks if you dropped the 'S' LOL

Thank you Mrs B :D I've never even thought to question underpants!

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
