    Oh that's funny and true.

    I don't understand Dolmio. My brother swears by it - but, having spent his formative years in the US, he also thinks no meal is complete without a tin of soup added.

    It is so sweet and salty and a little bit gluggy. Sure it is easy, but then how hard is chopping some garlic, whacking in some good olive oil, a tin of pealed toms and a handful of chopped basil? By the time your spag is cooked the sauce is ready to serve.

    The positive....what I had from this summer will carry me over to next summer, no need for any updates. Oh and, am still not wearing shoes without socks...!! For those supporters of this ideal, you will find much pleasure in photos 9 and 10.

    On brown shoes, poor shoes in black are still more apropriate than brown, one can be poorly dress yet still correct.

    What is with the Brisbane hate we'll even pull up strangers in the street for wearing "brown (shoes) in town".

    NB: I've actually seen that happen.

    Wow, didn't mean to open that can of worms...

    My views on brown shoes:

    -I don't generally see clients when wearing brown shoes (only a few times that come to mind, one client is let me think..."pastoral". I turned up in brown shoes, chinos and navy sports coat - my boss turned up in a suit without tie - this is in rural Australia...I would say I probably fit in quite a bit better...my thoughts are to dress appropriately for the situation)

    -I have worn a suit and brown shoes to a publishing/media client wear the general dress code was jeans and a shit. This client was in a major city so I figured the suit with brown shoes was fair enough.

    -When in the office wearing my brown shoes I still dress better than most Partners (who sadly wear black suits and black square toed slip-ons).

    Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer from Men's Biz. I use it on my hands and heels. Paraben-free and non-greasy. Good stuff.

    Having done that same typo before it is far too easy to do.
