    I never saw a purple cow,
    I never hope to see one;
    But I can tell you, anyhow,
    I'd rather see than be one.

    Rules are straightforward: wear a purple tie.

    Assuming that my tailor finishes altering a suit of mine by this afternoon, and that I can post my entry one day early, I'm in. I won't see the results until my return from Vancouver/Seattle on the 7th, but as I have virtually no chance of winning, not exactly a nail-biter of a finish.

    Went into my closet to see if I have any purple ties
    Didn't realize that I actually have 7.

    Those boots and a purple tie? I must be perceived as more of a vulgarian that I had previously imagined . . . :embar:

    I knew clag had this planned since I sold that tie months ago. He saw it happen and planned this thing from the very beginning.

    Subscribed. Any restrictions on the shade of purple (e.g. does lilac work)?
