Can't Sleep...Clowns Will Eat Me...

So, I'm awake. I have been awake since six o'clock-ish, when the boy got up to go to work. The second I woke up, my brain started compiling a to-do list for the day, a what-if list for the month, and a what-the-hell-am-I-gonna-wear list for my upcoming job.

Today I need to go to the dry cleaner. I've got a single shirt that needs a wash. I'll probably take some sweaters in, too, just so I don't look like a stupid person going in with ONE shirt.

I need to go shopping. I own two ties. One is black. One is white. There isn't a heck of a lot you can wear a white tie with. Well, maybe that's not true...but there isn't a heck of a lot I will wear a white tie with. Also, every tie I seem to buy ends up being too long. I tie it perfectly, and the extra tie that hangs out behind the actual tie always hangs down past the tip. Damn my short torso! So...I'm a little apprehensive about that. Can you shorten a tie? I just want to snip it off...because there's NOTHING else to do with it. Any solutions?

It's long sleeves, a collar, and a tie every day from here on out. No casual Saturdays. And now I work two Sundays a month. I've never had to regularly wear a tie. I don't mind it. I just have more tie issues than most people. Do ties come in different sizes? I don't even know...

Maybe the boy will take me to the Gap where I can buy a sweet white dress shirt. I don't have one of those. And I wouldn't mind getting some slim khakis. The ones I own make me look like a middle schooler on picture day...

And this is what keeps me awake in the morning...but I should get used to it.

I HAVE A JOB!!!

You know, I have no idea re: your tie question. I guess there must be different sizes?

So, will you be working at a bank? If so, I'm kind of amazed you have to wear a tie. Must be a nice place!

It's a small community bank, but yeah...it's ties all the time. I was shocked when she told me there are NO casual days...but oh well. I've found people treat you more nicely when you are wearing a tie, so...hooray!

Do you use a double windsor knot? That is what Dave uses and the tie isn't too long then.
