Had a hockey game tonight, and with 4 days to Valentine’s, nothing made more sense to me than to wear these dashing multi-colored roses. Because you can’t call yourself truly secure in your masculinity until you’ve worn socks that look like Grandma’s curtains into a locker room.
Felt like I ran all over the tristate today taking kids hither, tither, and yon in support of their various extracurriculars. Ran all over so much, in fact, that there were times I really could have benefitted from being in two places at once. Obviously, that’s kinda not realistic, so we did the best we […]
Wore the martini glasses today, in anticipation of happy hour a colleague put on the calendar last week. Smoky, it appears, wasn’t terribly impressed with my Friday after-work plans, but had one or two ideas of house own about what we should do when I got home. Incidentally, they all included playing with formerly stuffed […]
Today’s pair is in honor of SpaceX’s largely successful launch of its Falcon Heavy rocket. Twenty-seven engines powered the thing our if Earth’s gravity, and then delivered Elon Musk’s 2008 Tesla Roadster into deep orbit.

I don’t usually get shots o’ the socks from this angle because there’s typically some cool detail or contrasting color on the heels that I want to make sure end up in frame. Today, though? Not so much. So then here’s a view of my toes, head on. Try not to flinch.

There we discuss politics, sports, how our kids are simultaneously amazing and yet mostly somehow make […]
These are the of the four things required to make watching the Big Game from a comfy recliner a success. Speaking of which, if anyone gets up, could you grab me a beer?
So I was planning on giving it one if these today… …And then giving a shout out to the Arizonas and New Mexicos out there for providing some warm winter relief to travelling Mid-Westerners (who hopefully had the good sense to pack 8 dudes into a rented RV en route for Vegas. But as you […]
When your weather app tells you something like this at 7 am, you go looking for warm footwear. All of my socks are pretty much the same, though, and not exactly of the “thick and extra warm” variety. Luckily I had these waiting in the drawer, because if you can’t have warm feet, at least […]
