Lucy in the Tie with Diamonds…

Picture yourself in a train in a station / With plasticine porters with looking glass ties

With an assist from Kim Pierceall of Grotto Communications, we break off from my two-day Stones jones and turn to the Beatles for a hit of inspiration. And it even had Guys With Ties hidden amongst the lyrics. These guys looked good in everything, even their matchy-matchy dark ties…

My Tie du Jour (wow, how long has it been since I’ve actually written about a TdJ on the actual Jour?) is a salmon pink strip (yes, Dan, I realize the iPhone camera didn’t capture the color, and no, Dan, I haven’t gotten my Flip video camera yet) with differently-sized and -textured blue and gray stripes complementing. From Ermenegildo Zegna (remember, it’s pronounced air-men-eh-HEEL-dough), this tie has great changes in the grain of the fabric.

I am sorry I am wearing pink so late in the month, but I would like to honor those who have taken the time to promote National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You have walked, run, biked, talked, shared, cried, cheered–all for your friends, your family, yourselves. Football players have worn pink shoes, gloves, hats (on the sidelines) as a token of their request for women everywhere to fight the good fight, so that we can dream the good dream of a world where cancer kills only in the history books.

My newest and bestest buddy, Lee Allison, is offering a special promotion codes on a selection of pink ties, through his Lee Allison Company site, until the end of the month.

Speaking of new buddies, I recently discovered (because one of them discovered me) a couple of blogs that have been focusing on the ties that they wear. One of the cool things about using WordPress is that they track the web links via which users arrive at 100D100T. Through this avenue, I found the dimpledfourinhand, which mentions 100 Days, 100 Ties, as well as a very similar blog called 100 Days of Ties. They could both teach me a lot in terms of blog presentation, as their designs both kick mine’s derrière. Check them out if you get a chance…

Well, this may be the end of the week for ties. The Chamber moved office today, with a marathon packing event this evening. Tomorrow will be an unpacking event, and I’ve been advised to wear jeans. Jeans to work is all fine and dandy, but I need to make an appearance, as a local G-list celebrity, so I may opt to wear something a little less casual. For the second year in a row, I’ll be judging a pumpkin-carving contest amongs the tenants of the 500 Davis Building. Let the bribing begin!

Thanks for reading…Brooke
