Nothing personal to anyone here, but if I'm called upon to attend any of your weddings in the near or far future, don't be offended if I show up sans necktie. I went to Nixy's wedding last night and nearly missed it because it took me somewhere around 40 minutes to get the necktie proper. Sounds severe, but consider: I think the last time I wore a necktie was 2004 or 2005. I don't do it often, and last night ensured that it'll be a long time before I do it again. I ended up going to the web and searching for "how to tie a necktie" (with another browser page open, searching for "is it acceptable to not wear a necktie to a wedding"), and after multiple aborted attempts, I finally hit it right with this page. Relache in Seattle, whoever you are, you have my gratitude. The rest of you, if I die and they want me to wear a necktie in the coffin, try to convince them to dress me in something I could conceivably have put on myself while living -- a hockey jersey, or pajamas, or something.
In other news: it's been in the neighborhood of 100 degrees all week here, combining the broiler-pan feel of Arizona with insane, unrelenting humidity. There's no jokes to be made about this. Quite simply, Atlanta's not made for human habitation.
