Why I Am Getting Nothing Done

Tuxedo Three weekends, three charitable galas. I’ve been well wined and dined in recent weeks, but it sure has been hard to fit in any significant time for house projects.

As you can see from the photo taken before this last weekend’s affair at the zoo, I didn’t even manage to have the mirror clean before snapping a quick self-portrait in my tuxedo. On the other hand, I probably could have cleaned every mirror in the house in the time it took me to tie that bow tie. I have a rental-style pre-tied bow tie that I could have chosen to save time, but wearing it feels like cheating. Would James Bond or Frank Sinatra wear a clip-on? No way. And so, in the spirit of Bondatra, patron saint of men’s formal wear, the choice was clear.

Besides, that tie turned out to be my weekend’s only do-it-yourself project.

Completely agree. Clip-ons are cheating! It would be nice to have someone there to tie it for you though, right?

Looking forward to seeing lots of your house this summer as everything comes alive around it. That’s if this SNOW would stop!

Looking pretty dapper there!

Glad you went with the “real” tie. You can tell the difference.

@Nate – They’re predicting snow again this weekend. Even in Minnesota, May snow is wrong.

@Sandy & Jenni – Thanks!
