100 Days of Ties: Day 73. As Graham Withers and I wait for the bus…

BX: Right on time.

And as I sit waiting for the bus this morning, it struck me, “I’m 29. Time to get a good deal of this business in order. Still a young man am I, but it’s time to pin down sopme real goals, plans, etc.” I see 2011 being a big year on a number of different levels. Before all that, though, I am doing my best to finish 2010 with a bang. So far, so good, as I have wrangled a few cats to play some tunes with, got that Rugby feature under my belt, made a few new friends, and even just last night, found a favorite new haunt to call home for Broncos games and other random meetup times with friends. I was thinking though, on the bus today, about starting to ink down my resolutions which I have never really done before and probably won’t do again. I’ll make a few changes here and there, but I don’t need a piece of paper glaring at me to lose weight, or drink less, or stop kicking the cat… I know what I need to do. So I will do that.

100 Days of Ties: Day 62: Denver is beautiful and coffee with Gant Rugger, Fred Perry, and Graham Withers.

Time: 6:54AM / Hat: Modern Amusement newsboy / Shoots: Red Wing for J. Crew / Tie: Graham Withers / Shirt: Fred Perry / Coat: Gant Rugger / Bag: Lands' End Canvas

I’m not even gonna really get into it today with some story or witty banter…. All I will say is I have developed a reignited passion for my fair mile high city of Denver, CO. It’s beautiful, my family and friends are all here (save for you out-of-staters), and I’m comfortable. Plus, we have excellent Mexican food. What else do you need?

On another note and speaking of other cities, the 100 Days of Tie party has a date. Read up on it on the 100 Days page, and RSVP at the eventbrite page. See you there.

One last thing right quick: I touched on maybe getting a little fund going to assist in my airfare to NYC for the party. Almost immediately, Paul from Graham Withers, featured today, chimed in with a cool $50 donation. If just another few people would be willing to do the same, I would really appreciate it. Lemme know if you are willing to donate by emailing me. Continue reading

100 Days of Ties: Day 54: Where the Wild Things Are

Tie: Graham Withers / Shirt: J. Crew / Sweater: Lands' End Canvas / Toys: A Welcomed Distraction to Real Life

I’m keeping it short and sweet today as it hasn’t been the best start to what is actually a quite pleasant (weather-wise) Thursday. No sleep + cutting my hand + a perpetual feeling of nausea since rising from bed this morning = Not an ideal fourth day of the week. Even with the inclusion of playing with my WTWTA toys this AM, absolutely KILLING the LA Times crossword, managing to still look good (IMHO), and trying to calm down on the bus listening to Sigur Ros and Explosions in the Sky, I do not have high hopes for the day. But you play the hand you’re dealt, and I will grab whatever life throws at me today by the horns and wrestle that business to the ground.
