Do you have single or double monks?

Both. My beaters are a pair of Ferragamo monks--single. Those are my airport shoes too, because they are so easy to take off. But I really love double monks. (I only have one pair of double monks, though: AE Mora.)

I'm a big fan of double monks --- they're the only type of shoes I've both lately.

I don't remember exactly when it was that I first saw a pair of double monks. But I know it was love at first sight.

I remember partying in Deep Ellum about 14 years ago. There on a business trip due to corporate buy out. Great time.

Random though Frog triggered.

Btw, Frog, what were you planning to do with your keys in your knuckles? Fight off 10 guys Chuck Norris style?

so my company isn't going to fuck me and dump me. Worst case the position is gone and they'll give me 60 days and a bonus on top of my '12'Q4 bonus. So I'm not financially boned. I'm voluntarily paying spouse support while my wife is in school that coupled with more than half of my money growing legs and walking away has put a lot of financial stress on me.
Best case my position is still around. That said I don't like my boss and he doesn't like me. However, he acknowledges how fucked my market would be without me. We would go from 150 units to 30 units within a few months. He doesn't like how I do business, but he knows I'm good at what I do. And I am very good at what I do.
My VP, different than my direct boss, told me I've outgrown our brand for this market. He Told me I should start looking elsewhere because I'd make a bigger difference and make more money. Also said to send him my résumé and he would send it out to help me look around. I'd like to get a job selling booze just to bars and restaurants for a spirit company with a diverse portfolio. Ideally in NYC, LA, or Miami. I don't have many relationships in those markets and that's a problem.
I talked to my mother for the first time in over 2 months. That was good, I guess. My friends convinced me I was being stubborn about something. So I reluctantly called her. Status quo. I'm the kind of person that can write someone off and never talk to them again. I was fully prepared to do this with her. I did it with my sister whom I haven't spoken to in 2 years.
Thanks again guys.

very very glad that things are looking for you, B. i hope it continues that way.

My fucking ex wife asks me to come to her house to hang out with our daughter while she goes to a party this evening. Nice guy that I am, I do it because I like spending time with my daughter when it isn't my week with her. While we're watching a movie together, my daughter starts complaining about her throat being so sore that she can hardly swallow and having a bad headache all day. Sounds like the familiar symptoms of strep throat I think to myself. I eventually put my daughter to bed, and wait for her mom to get home. When she returns (later than she said she would), I tell her that E is complaining about her throat, to which she replies, "yeah, I am going to take her to the clinic tomorrow". The fuck? She knew she was sick, and didn't tell me so I would come over so she could go to the party. Just so happens, I ate the last bit of E's dinner that she didn't finish. I'll be right pissed if I wake up feeling sick tomorrow.

And ffffuuuu.gif to being so OCD about refinishing a table. I'm never completely happy with the "final coat". The current one has bits of lint stuck in it.

They're AE Presidios. AFAIK, they are a discontinued model but you can still find them in odd shops here and there. I bought mine at a shoe store in NYC about a year ago.

They are also made from a narrower last, so make sure to try on a half-size larger for good measure.
