Today was a “blue shirt with Levi’s” kinda day. These blue babies seemed like a perfect match.

Had a hockey game tonight, so not much time to wax poetic. Maybe I’ll find mote tomorrow amid the expected snowpocalypse to make a proper post for once.

And maybe pigs can fly in freezing rain. I guess we’ll see!

Finally in comfy pants after a looong day. Had to endure an arduous dinner with a vendor from work that included a fancy 16 ounces of ribeye and the tastiest Brussels sprouts I’ve ever eaten.

Arduous dinners, of course, require serious socks, and I can only hope today’s pattern was up to the task.

As promised, today’s socks certainly bring on Da Funk. I have to admit, this might even be my favorite pair so far. Not only do the colors involved come close to not matching each other, the pattern is highly reminiscent of QBert, a game I gave thousands of quarters to in my youth.

If wacky colors and a video game board pattern together can’t warm a jaded Generation X-ers soul, I really just don’t know what can.

Blue, gray, and white argyle today to match the freezing rain, ice, snow combination we got this morning that answered the kids’ fervent hopes for a snow day. They’re maybe a touch more low key than I’d maybe want to be sporting on a Monday, but sometimes Monday can dress up a little too.

We’ll definitely have to make up for that tomorrow with something extra funky. Stay tuned!

Eldest son had an indoor soccer games this afternoon, and his team colors are red and gray. This pair of snazzy beauties seemed like a no-brainer.

Tomorrow may bring ice and/or snow and/or nothing but rain. Wondering if I have a pair in the drawer to match such unpredictable meteorology. Maybe I’ll pick out the and wear the ones best suited to whatever happens to be falling from the sky. 🤔

On a nippy Saturday in January, Black, gray, and white Argyle seemed like a pretty solid match for a black lab happy with his chewy.

It’s the first Friday of a new year, so I figured I had no recourse today except to wear the craziest pair of socks I currently own. Earlier, I was thinking that getting a pic of my warm toes garbed in Friday funkiness right next to the space heater in my office would be a nice shot of the two most important things in my life at the moment. But then…

…then I got home from work and the Puddinette showed off her own Friday funk in front of our toasty fireplace, and, well, I remembered exactly what’s really important.

Have a great weekend out there, friends. Stay warm, and try not to set the place on fire.

It’s cold outside, the East coast is getting pummeled by what’s apparently a “bomb cyclone” (which is the most horribly-named meteorological event since “Sharknado 3”), and pretty much everyone I came across today was either grumpy, sick, or deep in the throes of a voracious post-holiday mood. Luckily, Smoky and I were both feeling pretty chill, probably because today’s socks are a sweet black-and-white mix of both dots and stripes.

Or maybe because there was a ferret chew toy on hand. As we can all agree, that’s pretty universally awesome, too.

Stay warm and safe, and watch for falling sharks!

A bone-chilling Wednesday calls for adorable pups in cozy sweaters, even if I am generally opposed to dressing dogs up in people clothes.

In unrelated news, Day 3 of #socks2018 has me contemplating a better way to photograph my feet. I gotta figure out how to Foot Model these puppies a little better. Anybody have a suggestion that doesn’t include bathroom selfies? My socks and I and all ears!

First day back at it in ’18. Since I work for an aerospace manufacturer, I figured the airplane print would be an appropriate option.

Oh, and check out my new cool swinging desk wheel. It’s awesome when the kids know just what to get you for Christmas.
