These are, without debate, the perfect socks with which to end this work week. After all, after making a fuss over argyle yesterday and The Dark Knight before that, what could be more fitting than a pair of Joker-themed argyles? Not much, obviously. And when you factor in that San Diego Comic Con -- the … Continue reading Argyle So Serious?
Today's red shirt required a decent match because, hey, if your socks can't match your outfit at least once a month, what are you even doing? Clearly, then, said shirt necessitated red-patterned argyle. Luckily, I've been hanging on to these snazzy bastards for a bit. Tomorrow calls for argyle, too, but that's gonna be a … Continue reading Any Excuse For Argyle
Sitting out on the patio a little later than usual tonight, but given that today's socks are in honor of everyone's favorite Dark Knight, it seemed to make sense*. The twist is that's not just a reference to Batman, the character. I mean, sure, who doesn't love the Caped Crusader and his wacky crime-fighting, but … Continue reading A Dark Night For The Dark Knight
I feel like I've basically been wearing socks of brands or characters of one kind or another since we went on vacation to Universal over a month ago. Which explains why this morning felt like high time to break it up with something patterned. I really like this pair, and the Puddinette agreed, although I'm … Continue reading A Reasonable Pattern Of Behavior
I was supposed to go to Harry Potter Trivia Night at a local Pub tonight, but, sadly, parenting occasionally gets in the way. Between soccer tryouts and pickup after theater rehearsal, trivia had to go on without me. As they say, though, the pub game must go on. Thankfully that didn't stop me from rocking … Continue reading Socks of Scarlet And Gold
Wrapping up cartoon week, today I'm proudly repping a little TMNT. Please note, that's a 90's TV cartoon version of a Teenager Mutant Ninja Turtle, not one of those strange, hulking "Micheal Bay movie" ninja turtle. Because I have some taste. Now, one might think, looking at my socks, that Donatello was favorite of the … Continue reading I Guess You Love The Turtle You’re With, Too
There are two pet dogs in today's sock photo, and one of them is significantly more famous than the other. Smoky, however, was unfazed today by his relative ignominy. But seeing as he was the one actually getting to chase down toys and gnaw on them at my Snoopy-covered feet, I suppose his audacity can … Continue reading Love The Dog (And Socks) You’re With
Positively spinning, I said yesterday. Get it... spinning? Because, see, Taz. The Tasmanian Devil has always been my favorite of the Looney Tunes. In fact the only two stuffed things I showed any interest in past the age of 6 was a Tasmanian Devil and a Captain Caveman I won at an amusement park in … Continue reading What For You Put Taz On Feet?
Obviously, I realize that Marvin the Martian already made an appearance here during Space Week. The thing is, though, he's always been my second favorite Looney Tunes character. Not only was he from space -- a fact that captivated me both as a kid and apparently an adult sock wearer -- he really did seem … Continue reading Marvin the Martian, Revisited
It's still Cartoon Week, and, admittedly, these aren't exactly from a show I watched on Saturday mornings as a kid. They are, however, definitely 'toons of some stripe, and adorable to boot. I'd surely binge watch this guy if he had a show. Come to think of it, maybe I should write a story for … Continue reading Some Mistakes Lead To Shuriken
