There's a very real possibility that when the day eventually comes that I'm expected to report to my office again on the regular, I'll be taken to HR within an hour of showing up to be written up for failing miserably at the dress code. First, though, I will say that in the beginning of … Continue reading Socks for Social Distancing, Day 27
It was a beautiful day where I live, and an even more beautiful evening...
This is obviously the second time I've taken to posting about my socks on a daily basis. If you're familiar with the blog here, you know I somehow managed to post with a different pair of socks each day throughout 2018. That wasn't easy, but believe it or not, this is actually a little bit...
On a positive note, it was almost 80 degrees where I live today, meaning that it was the first day of shorts for the year. That also means it was the first day requiring short socks, because wearing crew length socks with cargo shorts is just not a look my 14 year-old daughter would abide. … Continue reading Socks for Social Distancing, Day 15
And on the tenth day, he did pick a pair of argyles again...
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

I saw a link this morning to a NY Times Wellness blog post that talks about a study on the long-term benefits on aging of starting the kind of middle-aged running program I've foolishly enthusiastically committed myself to. Well, I guess it's not specific to running, but rather any kind of aerobic fitness in general … Continue reading The top 5 OTHER benefits of working out
It's Memorial Day weekend, which used to be a time for hoping that it was not rainy and warm enough that the annual parades and grill-outs wouldn't be ruined. But since it's 90 degrees today, humid, and sunny in this neck of the woods, apparently we don't have to worry about such things anymore. The … Continue reading Saturday Debate: The Hawaiian Shirt
I had the unfortunate occasion to attend a funeral late last week. Don't roll your eyes; this isn't going to be standard 'carpe-diem'/work-that-Bucket-List-NOW/what-have-you-done-with-your -life kind of post that usually leaks out when one's life intersects with a monumental event. Did I just suggest that these posts are word leakage? I might need help. Anyway, so … Continue reading Maybe neckties aren’t the Devil’s accessory
