30 January 2009


Marta surprised me with this tie and it made its debut at the office yesterday.

I don't really like surprises or letting other people pick out my ties. Despite those general rules of thumb, this tie is a winner. This is something I would have picked for myself. It's a great plaid tie. I've been a fan of plaid ever since my late uncle Earl, a very short and very rotund man, rocked the plaid polyester suit / plaid polyester tie combo at every family party. Like many people, Earl started wearing plaid-on-plaid in the mid-seventies. Unlike many people, Earl never gave it up. (If it ain't broke . . . .)

This is not my uncle Earl. This is, however, beautiful plaid.

It's now my duty to announce the recipient of the tie giveaway. I don't want to say "winner" of the tie giveaway, because you are all winners in my eyes. Really, you are. After all, isn't blogging all about self-esteem?

The recipient, as determined by the ultra-super-random-number-generator, is: thelyttlesinpa. Congratulations.

If you are not the recipient, please don't feel bad. That's the last thing we'd want. Remember you can always visit Anabela's website and buy a tie for yourself. If, after that, you're still feeling bad, go watch some Barney Miller reruns. Not only will you enjoy some top-notch late-70's comedy, you'll also encounter a lot of plaid!

Come back on Monday. Apparently we're giving away more free plaid. (Just kidding, there will be no more plaid. However, there will be another giveaway.)

Is Uncle Earl the one the Dixie Chicks took care of? The plaid jacket makes me think so.
