My Retarded New Blazer

I secretly love fashion. I think I’m really good at striking a good balance between young, urban professional and crotchety old Kentuckianaian.

Regardless, the blazer I found for $30 has some interesting features.

First, it’s completely hard to find. I went to Target.com and noticed it and thought, “Oh, I bet I can just run down Emerson and pick that up.” Wrong! Target.com doesn’t tell you if an item is a store near you, so you’re forced to go all Oregon Trail all over the city to find one. I gave up after the Emerson Ave. store and just came home to order it online. Shipping is so lame.

Second, it has faux-pockets. It has a pocket over the left chest and two on the lower left and right sides. Except, they’re not really pockets. They’re just slits sewn together. I’m not sure if it’s a cost-saving move on the designer or if it’s just dumb. I imagine these pockets to be the sort of pockets designed by a committee:

Team Lead: “Now that we’ve determined the color should be “Strategic Yellow”, would anyone like to make a motion for pockets?”

Carl: “Yes. I move we have pockets.”

Dawn: “Uh, no, I’m not going to approve of pockets. Children can lose things in them.”

Steve: “Oh, well, how about we make pockets then just sew them together?”

All: “Aye!”

Despite having been hard to find and sporting retarded non-pockets, I’m still going to keep it. Maybe I’ll wear it every once in a while.

iPhoto Thinks I’m Colonel Sanders

So, Brandon was just trying out iPhoto on his new Mac. Turns out, iPhoto’s face-recognition technology thinks I’m Colonel Sanders. Yes, I do indeed know what those 11 herbs and spices are:

Col. Sanders is Justin Harter

It makes perfect sense. KFC is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky which is near my hometown of Salem. And, my lawn is mostly Kentucky Bluegrass, although that’s not necessarily in honor of Kentucky’s prized fried chicken.
