Space: The Current Frontier

I’ve decided this week is obviously Space Week. Of course, you may wonder why, exactly, I’d choose the week of June 18th for such a specific — and seemingly out of nowhere -/ theme. All I can tell you is that since I wore Space Kitty yesterday, just spent the better part of 4 days […]

Space Kitty And Kinetic Energies

Sometimes, when it’s hot, I don’t go out on the patio, until the cooler evening hours. I’m not sure waiting for it to be 84 at 11:30 PM qualifies as either evening or cooler, but here we are, with me in my astronaut cat socks, which I’ve been saving for just the right day. As […]

Father’s Day Footies

Father’s Day required beer mugs, and I was more than happy to oblige. How could I not, especially in the previously referenced and adorable ankle-length format? Of course, by this time of evening, all of my actual children are either asleep or of doing things they don’t need me around for (read: playing Fortnite). Thankfully, […]

Perfect For Shakes And Sodas

I am not going to lie, wearing ankle-length socks feels weird to me. Like I’m sporting slippers or something underneath my shoes. But the aren’t slippers, they’re socks, and these are patterned with sodas, which I feel pretty confidently is exactly precisely what was called for on the Saturday before Father’s Day, June 16.

Two-Tone Testimonial

Now, I know what you’re thinking…these are way boring. Possibly not even worth inclusion in the 2018 Best Foot Forward Project. But I disagree. Wholeheartedly. Not only are they two tones of purple (which is my favorite color), one of those tones is, like, Roman Imperial Purple. Also, those chevrons on the ankles make these […]

No Forgetting Flag Day

June 14th is Flag Day here in the US. That was pretty low-hanging fruit as it relates to sock selection. Need I say more?

Machine Learning A Human

Back to work today for us suckers who don’t get the summer off like my kids. I actually had the good fortune to attend a manufacturing automation seminar today, where I got to see plenty of robots doing stuff that seemed impossible 10 years ago but most Roombas can do now. The future, it is […]

…And In The Pastels Bind Them

After a week full of irritatingly zoomed and cropped sock shots, it’s time for a full confession. I didn’t do all that just because I felt like doing something different, or even mostly because of it. No, truth is, all that nonsense was a necessity because of Puddintopia Blogging Rule #4: Thou Shalt Not Broadcast […]

One Picture To Find Them…

This one from yesterday tells pretty much the whole tale of why I’ve been posting cryptic closeups for the last week. Anyone want to guess? You have until 10 pm tonight, at which point all will be revealed!

Green Goblins

Is that Slimer from Ghostbusters, or does it looks more like one of those finger goblin puppets that Alton Brown was always on Good Eats? The world may never know…
