The Perfectly Amazing Tetris Mystery Of 2018

My life has become a strange and wonderful thing. I was lamenting to the Puddinette on earlier this week that what I really needed for Old School Video Game Week was a pair of Tetris socks, but I was just going to make due with what we had. After all, I probably have in the […]

Super Stars Socks

Today I got to sport Starmen on my feet, which was fortuitous as it was the first day you could get one of the newly released NES Classics. (Believe it or not, I actually didn’t know about that Monday when I coincidentally declared this Old School Video Game week.) So, as I was wearing Starmen, […]

Hey, Listen!

Yes, these are Zelda socks. ZELDA. Like, look at that Tri-Force! I mean, this might be the best Thursday ever.

Sweet 8-Bit Nostalgia

I heart these socks. Odds are fairly good that these will end up on the short list of pairs I end up keeping at the end of the year. They remind me of a simpler time in my life, when the only thing I wanted to hide from was Middle School. As it turns out, […]


I was pretty giddy when the Puddinette acquired a pair of old-school Mega Man socks for me, and doubly so when I realized I could fit them neatly into Old School Video Game week. Thankfully, but not surprisingly, I’m totally not alone in recognizing which socks are just solid, and which ones are fundamentally kick […]

It’s-A Me, Mario Socks!

That’s right, kids, it’s Video Game Week. And if that wasn’t exciting enough, I’m pretty sure we’re potentially looking at Old School Video Game Week. I haven’t worked out the whole nine yards quite yet, but that’s looking like a definite possibility. Which is to say, I’m pretty giddy about the upcoming week in socks. […]

Just The Astronomical Necessities

And thus, with orange toes, solar system socks including the requisite accoutrements, and, of course, my disturbingly hairy ankles, Space Week comes to its happy conclusion. Coming up next: <retracted>


Luckily the longest day of 2018 was just a few days ago, giving me enough daylight still today at 8:30 PM to capture this shot of the moon with space shuttle socks in the foreground. I’m not going to lie, I was pretty pleased with it. That goes for the socks too, which you can […]

A Rocket-based Soapbox

I’m pretty sure I’m keeping at least one pair of my NASA socks. Why would I, you ask, when I have SO many others to choose from? Because, when I was a kid, NASA meant a LOT to me. In fact, from the time my parents were kids to my own childhood, NASA represented the […]

The Anti-Martian Defamation League

I haven’t got a lot to say today, except, of course, if you don’t think Marvin the freaking Martian deserves to be included in Space Week, well, I’m not sure we can be friends. #Marvin4Life
