Lookie what arrived via Canada Post yesterday. Tiff’s gorgeous riding boots! Her beautiful Isaac Mizrahi boots! Too bad they’re the wrong colour, wrong size! It’s laughable the continual fuck-ups this particular online retailer commits. Tiff woulda happily lived with the colour mizhap … despite the fact that she purposely ordered early, ensuring that she’d get her fave grey before selling out. But she def can’t live happily with those monstrous size 9s. Nor can I! Rest assured y’all, will be calling complaining pronto after posting. I won’t be missing this bus … REUBENNNN!!
… nobody even says cutoffs anymore … sup with that? Maybe people don’t bother to cut their jeans to make them? I know I do, anything I can to stretch/salvage some denim, you bet!! And, see I do smile, lol … hey, check out my red Calvin Klein socks matching my PF Flyers Number 5 … rockin’ that shit too … how old am I eh, lol?!
Warmer temps means no more loose layered clothes. I had 4 pounds that I needed to shed, yet I managed 4 more … and all in the past few weeks. More moving, less beer, wiser food choices. Plenty of hard work and dedication, more ahead … but it’s a start, and today I’m pleased.
Old man shaking his skinny-assed moneymaker, lol …
… Bellwoods Brewery y’all!! Ambled on over after our Ossington Ave. Wonderboy birthday brunch. These hipster places are popping up all over, and it’s these doofuses who insist on letting everyone know how great and cool these places are with their geek tweets even though it may not be the case … as long as their social media fingers are the quickest outta the pockets/purses … but, I digress. I’ll speak the truth, PLUS I’m a beer drinker from WAY back with a shitload of experience under my 32″ waisted belt, so I kinda know my stuff. Here are my thoughts. I liked the beer (White Picket Fence Belgian Wheat, Bootknife (Belgian Brown)) enough, and I’m a HUGE fan of fresh beers, so they scored bonus points. But, there is no escaping economics, and these 650 ml bottle were priced too high, WAY too high – $5.85 (I recall, thereabouts in any case), and I won’t ever buy again due to that very reason. Saying you’re pricey is the proverbial understatement. A quick example/lesson of better beers w/ better prices; Beau’s Lugtread 4X600ml bottles – $15.85 … and my favourite night and day comparison – Chimay Premiere 750 ml – $6.00 … less 10¢ deposit to boot. Word to the wise, ya get what ya pay for … and my smart money’s on Chimay!!
Must admit, really don’t fully understand it … and if this was her blog maybe she’d explain better, but it ain’t. And I do know she’s signed up for others – beauty boxes … Luxe Box, Loose Button … come to think of it, something tells me those two are actually one in the same?! The fuck do I know, lol? Anyways, I do remember reading in my TO Star that TopBox was the most desirable of this dollingoutsamplesbeautyboxbunch … AND, that there was a waiting list to sign-up. As luck would have it, my credit card membership permitted me front of the line privileges and Tiff scored huge … not your regular TopBox either, this one came with twice the goodies offered regular subscribers. Can’t remember all that’s supposed to be inside, do like the packaging … a couple of pics y’all …
… for now’s what I mean … don’t hold yer breath, and I don’t wanna hear smack from any of ya when ya see more, lol!! Love ’em both, 1st pic ’cause he’s looking so casual … shirt unmotherfuckingtucked … with a hint of a smile, both rare for him … unsure of the year, guessing ’53-’55 … do know it’s a cultural event (another reason I cherish these particular photos), he was extremely proud of his roots, of his ancestry and heritage. The 2nd pic, taken February ’57 … is of him with friends, love it as well ’cause he was always the best looking one of the bunch … GREAT hair as always, contrasting colours; jacket and pants … AND check out his flatly folded hankie … spank-yie very much, snot-rag stylin’ shit motherfucker had goin’ on!!
