Infinity Socks: Endgame

The term has become inexplicably popular over the last week, but I can think of no better word to describe this new phase of our little sock project than “endgame”. Today begins an seemingly unending series of holiday socks to round out was has been an outstanding year, hand selected by my second son, who […]

A Monday With Unusual Chemistry

Yes, of course I have a pair of socks proudly emblazoned with the Periodic Table of Elements. These were actually a gift from my sister-in-law, whose taste in picking out the appropriate socks for me is apparently spot-on. Sadly, due to a somewhat common personality condition know as “being a dumbass” (that’s the clinical term) […]

I Am The Wolf (Of Socks)

The lone wolf prowls the increasigly quiet blogger-sphere at night, hunting the elusive sock poster. Little did he know that he was what he sought, alive only as a pair of socks, seeking prey upon a nerdy dude’s ankle in vain. It was a dark, cold night, and a lonely, howling moon. And the nerdly […]

Vote Xenomorph

When I said yesterday that there would be one notable exception to the parade of puppy socks proudly portrayed on my paws this week, I’m guessing that most of you might have figured that our one difference would likely pop up today. It is, after all, a pretty significant day, at least here in the United […]

The Annual Magic: The Gathering Punishing

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before, but I’m a big fan of playing Magic: The Gathering. You know, that card game all the nerds like. Oh, don’t look so surprised. I’m a huge nerd. Pretty sure I’ve made that abundantly clear already. Of course, then, I like M:TG, and as a card-carrying nerd, […]

A Dark Night For The Dark Knight

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 […]

Constellations And Canine Considerations

The Puddinette and I sat out on the patio last night when it became inexplicably temperate for one glorious night, giving us a brief moment of respite from this year’s July Hellscape. Being the nerds we are, of course, we broke out a sky view app on my phone, which identified for us all the […]

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 […]

Life Goals Shaded Blue

I’m a gigantic nerd, so obviously I fell in love with today’s pair of socks pretty much immediately because they reminded me of a blue-tinted circuit diagram. Plus also, Tron. I can neither confirm nor deny that I purchased a 6-pack of predominantly blue-colored socks in order to acquire this one pair. Also (because I’m […]

All The Nerdy Reminiscing

I can’t decide if these remind me more of the “City Lights” cutouts from that one Homecoming dance, a circuit board, or playing Ms. Pac-man (which any reasonable video game enthusiast will admit was objectively the best of the Pac-Man games). They kind of look like the inside of the Death Star too. Regardless, they […]
