Here’s One For All My Heir Of Salazar Pals

I spent most of yesterday twisting my brain around, attempting to wrangle something called a “predictive recursive decent parser” for work. The good news is that I eventually succeeded, and somehow managed to produce an algorithm capable of both parsing what needs parsing while also putting it back together again. Which is to say, all […]

When You Can’t Even Trust The Stripes

I really like this color combination, which is probably good since I’ve worn something similar repeatedly in the past week. Or, at least it feels like it. I’m even less certain about what We should call this pattern. My first inclination was to say they’re striped. But as far as stripes go, does it still […]

A Limerick For Day 339

There once was a fella with ideas quite strange…

The Moment #NationalSockDay Got Too Meta

Today is kind of a big deal. Not only is it National Trick Shot Day and National Dice Day — which, can you believe the luck of landing both on the Same. Day?! — it’s also National Sock Day. Oh, and apparently there’s some business about it being National Cookie Day, too, but I mean, […]

Because The Colors Make It Special

Because The Colors Make It Special

This pair of socks, with its subtle, multi-colored dots, is quite possible the most understated of the 337 pairs I’ve worn this far in 2018. How do you know? Because this is the first time all year I’ve had to edit a photo and adjust both the contrast and the black times in order to […]

Swan Socks For An Ugly Day

These socks have been sitting in The Drawer Of Holding for literally months. Over all that time, I’ve been struggling to come up with a good day to wear them. I mean, for one thing, they’re Steelers colors, and as a long-suffering, lifetime Bengals fan, it’s a challenge to wear anything that’s black and gold. […]

Deus Ex Sockina

I love these socks a ton and will definitely be keeping them after The Great Sock Experiment of 2018 comes to it’s natural end. If you can’t quite read them — and I apologize for the strangeness of the angle, but when socks only have something of interest on the outer part of the leg, […]

The Last Tour Of Sock Prophecy

Today is the last “last day of the month” this year that isn’t also the “last day of ridiculous sock challenge, 2018”, so I decided this morning that a slight celebration was in order. And, obviously, nothing says celebration when it comes to socks quite like toasting beer mugs. Hence, today’s sock selection. Of course, […]

Tuesday Socks On A Thursday Morning

I was this close to rocking something really bright and not so stunning today, but at the last minute, these caught my eye. They aren’t the most striking pair of socks I’ve worn this year, but I thought they had something of a subtle charm. Admittedly, Thursday wouldn’t usually be the day of the week […]

A Haiku For The End Of November

Dots, but not polka…
