Finally in comfy pants after a looong day. Had to endure an arduous dinner with a vendor from work that included a fancy 16 ounces of ribeye and the tastiest Brussels sprouts I've ever eaten. Arduous dinners, of course, require serious socks, and I can only hope today's pattern was up to the task.
As promised, today's socks certainly bring on Da Funk. I have to admit, this might even be my favorite pair so far. Not only do the colors involved come close to not matching each other, the pattern is highly reminiscent of QBert, a game I gave thousands of quarters to in my youth. If wacky … Continue reading January 9th, 2018
Blue, gray, and white argyle today to match the freezing rain, ice, snow combination we got this morning that answered the kids' fervent hopes for a snow day. They're maybe a touch more low key than I'd maybe want to be sporting on a Monday, but sometimes Monday can dress up a little too. We'll … Continue reading January 8th, 2018
Eldest son had an indoor soccer games this afternoon, and his team colors are red and gray. This pair of snazzy beauties seemed like a no-brainer. Tomorrow may bring ice and/or snow and/or nothing but rain. Wondering if I have a pair in the drawer to match such unpredictable meteorology. Maybe I'll pick out the … Continue reading January 7th, 2018
On a nippy Saturday in January, Black, gray, and white Argyle seemed like a pretty solid match for a black lab happy with his chewy.
It's the first Friday of a new year, so I figured I had no recourse today except to wear the craziest pair of socks I currently own. Earlier, I was thinking that getting a pic of my warm toes garbed in Friday funkiness right next to the space heater in my office would be a … Continue reading January 5th, 2018
It's cold outside, the East coast is getting pummeled by what's apparently a "bomb cyclone" (which is the most horribly-named meteorological event since "Sharknado 3"), and pretty much everyone I came across today was either grumpy, sick, or deep in the throes of a voracious post-holiday mood. Luckily, Smoky and I were both feeling pretty … Continue reading January 4th, 2018
A bone-chilling Wednesday calls for adorable pups in cozy sweaters, even if I am generally opposed to dressing dogs up in people clothes. In unrelated news, Day 3 of #socks2018 has me contemplating a better way to photograph my feet. I gotta figure out how to Foot Model these puppies a little better. Anybody have … Continue reading January 3, 2018
First day back at it in '18. Since I work for an aerospace manufacturer, I figured the airplane print would be an appropriate option. Oh, and check out my new cool swinging desk wheel. It's awesome when the kids know just what to get you for Christmas.
New year. New outlook. Same me, different socks.
