I had lunch...

...with My Friend Jefftm today, and we noted one thing in particular about the young edgy urban hipster demographic of which neither of us are a part.

That being, if you bear a passing physical resemblance to a young Al Pacino as Serpico, a seersucker suit is really not the thing to wear.

Even ironically.

Even post-ironically.

Know your limits, my friend. Know your limits.

Let me guess - he's an attorney! If it's not seersucker, it's a bow tie. It's just DARLING. I mean, PRECIOUS. What's next, a Fisher Price dump truck as fashion accessory?

Well, that does sound as though it has the appropriate level of childish uselessness, but I'm not sure how one would wear it, nor if it would go with seersucker.

Are you certain that two entries in one month doesn't mean you are back to blogging?

Oh, heavens no! I gave up blogging and shut this place down a long time ago and never wrote anything else.

Yeah and it shows. You need to have someone picking up after the ponies more often.

As a side note to your post- Segways always increase the dork factor a thousand fold. There is a dealership for those things near the capital in Richmond. There is at least one lobbyist cruising around on one of those turkeys.

Eh. Let 'em pick up after themselves.

As for your second comment, Pseudo-Serpico in seersucker on a Segway might have some entertainment value.

If there was a way to make him catch fire.

How about some b-day details if you're not blogging? Were you in fact declared "Potentate of Pinchgut" for the day? Did the ponies clean up after themselves? So many questions, so few posts ...

Post-ironically, hmmm, isn't that what your clothes look like after the hot flat-metal thingamajig is applied?

I received several pairs of sturdy, plain front, non-cuffed, poly-blend trousers in pleasing shades of darkness, six pairs of over-the-calf socks (and trust me, roping and tying up calves to get socks over them is no fun), a belt of finest leatherlike materials, four dress shirts, three comedy DVDs (Get Smart, Paul Blart, Pink Panther II), and an ice cream cake.

In addition, I received a telephone call from a contractor offering me a special, limited time offer on ductwork cleaning, in lieu of being appointed as minor royalty.

The ponies did not show up, although I believe one of our neighbors allowed their dog to besoil my yard with a pile of pony-sized waste matter. As with all such surprises, I took the shovel and scooped it out into the middle of the street to be fully enjoyed by everyone driving or walking by.

The favored buzz word these days is "transparent". So, to show your au courantness, you should have said a transparent suit is really not the thing to wear.

See-thru seersucker!?

Sufferin' succotash!

After you quit blogging, I quit coming to your page,but I never deleted the link on my page. Glad to see you are back. This country sure needs to stand up and be counted or we are in serious trouble from what the Obamamessiah has planned for us. Glad to see you back.---Try to get Compleat Redneck going again.

I'm not really back, Garland--I've got too much to do out in the silly ol' real world to make Possumblog alive again. Although I will say the comment spammers seem to think it's worth paying attention to.
