  • I can't recognise my brother's wife on the street for the life of me. A few times I walked right by even after she said hi (without name).
    The "new" Black Panthers? Is history repeating itself again? Even protest movements are as derivative as the 6th Transformers.
    Did some sports program just ask whether Cam Newton is the best in the NFL? Did people forget about the Super Bowl?!

    I thought that these events were meant to have dress standards??

    It's not the Ascot. The race is quite prestigious and largest purse in Canada. The last time I saw morning dress was 2010 when the Queen came with Prince Philip. It was 35c+ or something so I'm not sure that was prudent. Then it went into a slump so the past few years they have been playing up the social media bit, and young & fashionable crowd. Lots of adverts about the Hats and Horseshoe party.

    Big presentation tomorrow for work. Have to convince VIP to OK spending 1.2M on my proposal. Then I have the usual Wednesday night speech.

    Not quite. What I thought was a straight line from A to B is jagged, filled with potholes and possibly requires a bit of retracement. But hey, that's what makes professional life interesting.
    Queen Elizabeth turns 90 today - for all but a few of us, we've known no other on the throne.
    I just noticed my new boss likes to rap his knuckles on tables and walls like House of Card's Frank Underwood.
    Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6. I remember my father used to listen to this after the really bad days at the office.
    Thank you whoever decided to pull the fire alarm last night in my flat. I was trying to catch up on sleep, but you really spoiled it.
    Why is it the local flower shop never sends me notification when things are delivered? Buy local rubbish. Conglomerates are better.
    Almost no reason to unpack my travel bag as I'm back on the road again on Monday.
    Relationships with women: Funny they work just when my credit card starts to work.
    I almost left my flat today with a brown suit, brown shoes and black gloves. Luckily I went back and changed the gloves.

    Phew - that was lucky! I hope that your wallet and belt were also brown.

    Belt yes. Wallet - I have a stainless steel money clip and a card wallet with black/brown tones.

    People trust you with kids? I would be checking sippy cups for booze all night.

    She was telling me about her trip and which people couldn't handle their alcohol and what the telltale signs are.
    7 days till Christmas!!!! It's the most wonderful time of the year...ding dong ding...
    Last work day before I'm off next week: 6 margaritas at lunch, 5 whiskys at happy hour, 3 or 4 asahi at dinner. 3 pints of Pride at the pub.
    At the symphony. Tchaikovsky Symphony No 6 - all time favourite of mine. Astonishing I see two men in black tie.

    I'm in a provincial city. I only wear black tie to opera. I've seen it on the season opening gala but dress standards have declined at the symphony concerts. I wasn't wearing brown shoes and a light coloured suit if that's what you're asking.
