Pink on Black



Pink on Black, originally uploaded by ABMann.

I look good in pink.
Also, I think something about flashier colors lends itself to a four-in-hand knot on the tie. Bold colors call for modern styling though the asymmetry is bugging me (more than it should as I, personally, am asymmetrical and forever will be).
Maybe it’s just that the four-in-hand knot looks messy against a black-on-black suit. Maybe? Thoughts?

Last: NEED MORE BOWTIES. And, i think, tomorrow I’ll actually be able to get one on State.

I dig it. Have you ever thought about a bolo? I think you might be able to pull it off. Especially with the scruff in this picture.

What? Are you kidding?
No no no Oh no, dear god no. I"d look like this kid:

I didn't say grow a mullet. I said wear a bolo. You'd probably look more like one of these guys. I support the mustache too:

BUT WEARING BOLOS CAUSES MULLETISM!

I'm pretty sure that wearing bolos is directly linked to wearing cowboy hats. And that's something I think we can all support. It's only correlated to mullets.

But Burt Reynolds up there doesn't have a cowboy hat. That photo shows that bolos and AGE leads to cowboy hat usage.

Also whiskey. That's hard to tell from the photo, but the gentleman in the center's blood is actually 72% whiskey at this point.

ARE YOU A GRIZZLED OLD COWBOY YET?

I don't think I have whiskey in the house. I have cognac. Does cognac make you a cowboy?
nathan_lounge From: nathan_lounge Date: May 27th, 2011 02:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
What is the proportion of cognac to shag carpet in your house currently?

Also, why no whiskey? I hate whiskey and even I have a few bottles of it around.

We have shaggy bathroom mats and pillows.
So.. depending on how you want to measure the quantities we have:
7:1 shag/cognac (measures as discrete items)
1 million:750 shag/cognac in mL.
Many:few in lazy measures.

I just haven't bought any hard liquor in a while.
if you don't like it, why do you have it and why haven't you shipped it to me?

Also, this must mean you're more of a grizzled cowboy than me.

Hmm...1 million: 750 probably makes you less of a cowboy and more of a rake. How many heart shaped beds do you have again?

I like to have a well-stocked bar for entertaining and cooking purposes. So the core liquors get replaced as they run out. With whiskey I prefer to have a cheap cooking/mixing whiskey and a nice sipping whiskey as I have a handful of friends and my lovely SO prefer it. I'm a gin man myself.

And speaking of cowboys, I fired my first single action revolver last weekend. So my cowboy cred is through the roof right now.

I approve of everything lj_nathan_lounge has said in this thread.

You would, you Cylon.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 27th, 2011 05:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
What kind of revolver?
alyska From: alyska Date: May 28th, 2011 01:09 am (UTC) (Link)
I concur with the rake assessment. Cognac is a bit...twee for a cowboy.

Me? I lack the shag, but I have corsets, a hot tub, and port..

I'm allergic to bolos!

Seriously, I had a sneezing fit upon reading the word.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 27th, 2011 03:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
This is a healthy response to Southern culture.
world_rim_walke From: world_rim_walke Date: May 27th, 2011 03:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
It is something at which to sneeze.

SEXY tie.
Also, I just noticed that the white board behind you looks as if it states, "The force follows you."
Even if it doesn't say that, I'm going to believe that it does because... AWESOME.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 27th, 2011 02:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
"The Future follows You." Our CEO said it at the last all staff meeting and I rather liked the sound of it so put it on my board for all the team to see. brainwashing!
