Return of the Blue Sock

I was overjoyed to see that Viva had found my missing 'blue Monday' sock. It had been gone a week and seriously threatened to disrupt my morning routine.

I got a set of these black socks last year from the Warehouse - black socks with a difference ! On the heel and toe of each pair is a colour - and written on the 'sole' of each are the days of the working week. What is groovier is that the colours follow the progression of rainbow colours ( albiet in reverse ) :

Monday - Blue
Tuesday - Green
Wednesday - Yellow
Thursday - Orange
Friday - Red

Kinda neat huh ?

After one of the Blue Monday socks vanished ... it didn't feel right wearing the others. My whole dressing routine for the week - cast to the four winds ! It was a bleak time my friend. Bleak !

But - joy ! The lone sock turned up - much like a lost tramper in the Tararua ranges, it had simply stayed where it was until it was found. It was in the dryer - stuck to a weird upward area due to static.

Does this make me slightly OCDish ?


In an associated idea - am I the ONLY one who thinks 'Trinny and Susannah' are a pair of heinous bitches in need of a slow crushing via a steam-roller ?

You desperatley need a sock intervention.
Hell yeah thats OCDish!!!

You do know the kids call you 'Sock Freak Whistle Man'.
Or they will after I tell them about it.

Fear not brother, I have time on my hands and the love Jesus in my pretty green eyes... we will get through this!

Yay for the Blue Sock.

Yeah, T&S are clueless hags who make money out of being bitches. They erroneously peddle this idea that fashion sense can be taught.

The truth is that *true* fashionable clothing is about attitude and comfort. Telling people to dress a certain way because of how they look, and claiming fashion rules is just snakes-oil sold by people who can't get a job doing anything else.

Add to the fact that the two of them look very unfashionable most of the time as well. :)
