Walk like an Egyptie-an

Unfortunately, this won’t be a treatise on the situation in Egypt, where thousands of citizens revolted against a reviled and revolting, multi-billionaire murdering dictator. I’m just not as informed as I’d like to be about that.

But, one of my friends, David Tognarelli, just went there for a few days and had a blast. He said the curfew made for some earlier nights than he’d planned, but, hey, I’d be willing to give up that last couple of beers if you’d get home safe and soundly un-bullet-riddled.

David works at the First Northern Credit Union, where my (lack of) money resides; he’s also on the board of the Young Professionals of Evanston. So, if you’re young, professional and are in or of Evanston, check it out.

Anyblahblah, David is a GWT alum, and has kept tabs on 100D100T since the early days. He found my Tie du Jour in Cairo, and thought it’d be a worthy addition to my collection (or addiction, as it turns out to have become). It’s brown and tan and warm gold, and it fits right in with this textured shirt I had. The label says Elenio, but the good part is on the tag. There is a small guide on how to tie ties, but the way it’s described is pretty funny: WEAR WAYS OF TIE. As in, these are the ways you can wear this tie. Loved that.

But, thanks David! Now that it is in the already-worn, just let me know if you need to borrow it.

Thanks for reading…Brooke
