Today, it’s finally argyle. Why argyle, you ask? Argyle don’t need no reason, man. Now, that said, and yes, I firmly believe it, I will concede that I did have something of a reason. They actually managed to make me feel at least somewhat professional, especially given the rest of my “working from homewear” ensemble. … Continue reading Socks for Social Distancing, Day 5
Living with distance...
I thought the Tetris socks were the right call today because at this point we’ve all got limited space to work with, new, hardly recognizable shit is flying towards us at an ever increasing rate, and somehow we’ve got to deal with a boatload of crazy, disorganized, twisty-turned pieces before they smack us in the … Continue reading Socks for Social Distancing, Day 3
My understanding is that people across the country are starting to feel a little stir crazy already from our current exercise in limiting contact with each other. When picking out socks this morning, then...
One of my first tasks to kick off the upcoming weeks of “social distancing” was to find the appropriate pair of socks from the archives.

I still specifically remember writing that post, believe it or not, on one of those cold, blustery February nights that seemed more common … Continue reading A Story 10 Years In The Making
You might think that’s somehow a weird Election Day image, and I can come up with like a dozen different ways to make that work myself. However, this pic is actually about writing, and it goes along with my Twitter posts from Sunday... https://twitter.com/jasonarust/status/1191185343803985920?s=21 And then, of course, yesterday... https://twitter.com/jasonarust/status/1191574396512722944?s=21 Which is to say, I’m … Continue reading Remember, remember the 5th of November
Last week got away...

And since insert your symbolic … Continue reading Day 9, The Smoldering of The Fates
