Fast Ties at Ridgemont High

24 minutes.

I now know the minimum time it takes me to get ready in the morning. I woke up at 7:06, having forgotten to set the alarm, and needed to get to Julia by 7:30. No need to go into the play-by-play, but I did it, even after figuring out an alternative plan for about 4 or 5 minutes. So I guess I could be shorn, cleaned, deodorized and dressed in 20 minutes if it ever were necessary.

...and blue diamonds!

So, for my Tie du Jour (I always have to stop myself from writing “for today’s Tie du Jour”–Redundancy! Halt thee thyself!), I had to go with something I knew would work. So I quick-picked this tie/shirt combo that I’ve worn two-three times in the past.

My gosh, isn’t this exciting! It must feel like you, O Reader Faithful, were right there with me as I scrambled to make it out of the flat in time! Sorry, folks, I knew this would be on the mundane side from time to time.

Anyway, back to the TdJ…It’s a nice gray Tommy Hilfiger with two-tone blue diamonds. You can’t tell from the oh-so-crisp iPhone pic, but the lighter blue has a bit of texture to it which matches that on my Gene Meyer shirt. Ergo, the pair go (hey, I like that).

Update on the last Freebie Friday. There were no winners, as the only submitter of a comment was Paul Hletko, and his comment basically said he was not eligible for the FF. I have to agree, but if he’s over here again I just may give it to him.

Update on Bow Tie Week. My parents are heading to Spain in less than a week, volcanic ash-permitting, and they asked if I would postpone bow-tie week until their return. It seems that roaming charges to blog-surf in Spain may be harmful to your healthy pocketbook, and, lo, Mom asked if I’d wait until June. She is my mom and she asked on Mother’s Day…what was I to do? Alas, I will run BTW the first week of June, but I will wear a bow tie once per week until then. So, either tomorrow or Thursday will be the first one…gentlemen, start your bowties.

Well, it’s late, and I don’t want to miss another alarm. Thanks for reading…Brooke

    That Hletko sounds like a suck-up. Banish him!
