I drowned my sorrows by buying a brush to clean my Borsalino fedora from the same trad Japanese gentleman who sold me the hat months ago. Then enjoyed a double espresso outdoors while reading the newspaper and watching girls.

    Later joined a friend for drinks at Xen in Roppongi Hills and then adjourned to Hearland, where we fell to instant conversation with two attractive sisters. By and by, a tall, stunning woman caught my eye and we exchanged smiles at close range. To my eternal shame, I did not excuse myself from present company to buy her a drink and make conversation. Heartland is like shooting fish in a barrel if only you take aim, and I did not even draw. I'll be kicking myself for the next week, if not the next month. Trying in vain to find the sour grapes angle.

    Quite simply put, our relationship does not really have a future. We get along well but are mismatched as a couple in many ways. In forum lingo, you would say I'm not well-accessorized. Now I'm ready to move on.

    Yet another good reason to change my username.

    And as for being single, that only goes for the six days a week I'm not with P*ssycat. She came over early Sunday morning and slept all day (she works nights). This is a great activity if you enjoy spending all of a sunny and relatively warm day in bed doing nothing. Considering how I feel, that probably wasn't a bad way to spend the day.

    Is she hot? Maybe I can come sweep her off her feet for you. Or maybe I'll send Vaclav.

    Which restaurant in Old Pas? I think I've eaten in every restaurant there, but there has been a lot of turnover lately, mostly for the better. Style Forum moderator slumming with the trads. And I wear hoodies. And jeans. And sneakers. Please don't shoot me with a Trad pistol.

    I live in Connecticut, which isn't the most exciting place on the planet. New Haven is probably the lone bright spot on the map, or perhaps Stamford. Thankfully we have easy access to NYC or Boston.

    Was supposed to go to the bars, but ended up going to a friends instead. Her BF came over drunk and was starting stuff with everyone. Ended up hitting her, and then picked her up and tossed her onto a table that was covered in glasses and bottles. We kick him out and lock the door. 5 mins later he kicks the door in, and then he starts stuff with me, pushing me and just generally talking me down. He was getting more violent and started breaking random stuff in the house, and throwing objects at her. Then he starts pushing me and tries to kick me out of a house that doesnt belong to him. I grab his arm and throw him onto the ground, get on top, grab a knife from the table that was used for cutting limes (Corona night), and hold it to him, tell him he needs to leave now. I don't hurt him, but I make sure to draw some blood from his throat so he knows I'm not kiddign around. Normally I am not one to get into fights, but he was waaayy out of line and she was crying and really freaking out. She is calling the cops next time he comes over.

    Now, back home, about to go to bed and sleep it off...


    She's going to call the cops the NEXT time he comes over? Are you s**ttin' me? You have no idea what sort of mess you are in here. What was the reason for not calling the cops during his rampage? If she is putting up with his s**t, and not calling the cops, she is crazy. Being a knight in shining armor for a crazy chick can only lead to bad things. This sort of thing only leads to emergency room visits, lawyer bills, or having to buy a nice funeral suit....hopefully not your own.

    Jay,

    Yeah, was not in the best frame of mind last night, and acted kind of stupid. Anyway, cops were not called because there were drugs and alcohol in the house and she is under 21, and was very intoxicated. She is actually a very stable person but is just way too nice and tries to see good in everyone, even from this POS. She cannot shake him off, because every time they break up, he'll do something like kick in the back door or break in a window in the middle of the night to talk. They had broken up for 2 weeks one time, and she had started seeing another guy. The new guy woke up in the middle of the night one time with her ex-bf standing over him, knife to his throat. We have no idea how he got into his house, but he did. This is the kind of situation it is.

    Isn't this "restraining order" time?

    Has your friend talked with anyone about, if nothing else, possible steps she can take to protect herself? Change the locks, secure the windows, etc. The alcohol and drugs being part of the mix may cause hesitancy to file a report, but I have to believe a history of breaking and entering, physical abuse, and a knife at another's throat trumps the pause. What more is needed?

    It's a stupid situation in which no one should be involved. If "next time he comes over" means a line has finally been drawn, then, great, best of luck, hope it doesn't come to that and everyone moves on. But if it means doing nothing and hoping, that's almost asking for trouble.

    last night - Australian Chamber of Commerce event.

    Was ok, I guess, but they had this weird set up where had to buy drink coupons from one end of the room, then walk all the way to the bar at the other end.

    Was very annoying, especially since it was a short event (only a couple of hours) so didnt want to buy a bunch of coupons to save walking back and forth, knowing that they will be shutting the bar really soon, and you would just be stuck with a pocket full of coupons (or a table full of gettng-warm beer).

    In the end, I guess it just cost them revenue cos everyone just drank less...something I never thought I would see at an Australian night.

    Maybe I've spent too much time on Andy's site. Last night I went to the Harvard Club of New York. Drank just the right amount that I overslept by two hours today. [​IMG]

    reopening of a bar/restaurant called la Casa Latina - I liked it better before the renovation personally.

    served precious little food, so the entire population of the opening surfaced at the kebab shop next door, went out to play pool after that.

    won about $7 playing pool, felt like Paul Newman

    went home, witnessed three accidents on the way - so many crazy drivers out.

    Nothing tonight. But last Saturday:

    Was out for a nice walk on Newbury Street with my wife. Got some snide comments from three teenagers in front of me. Walked up really quickly behind them and asked them if they had a problem. Evidently, there were no problems. I made them go into Newbury Comics (a record store). One of them made a hand gesture. I told him that humiliation was better than the alternatives and waved them into the store. The smartest of the bunch helped them in.

    Boston. Shopping drag, goes from Chanel and Burberry at one end to streetwear, army surplus, and condom shops at the other. We were towards the other.

    I went shopping, of course! I spent several hours matching pant fabrics to my new borrelli jackets. I ended up picking 5. A navy silk, charcoal 120s twill, 120s med grey, 120s mocha twill, and a 120s beige. Now I just have to wait 6 weeks =/

    They're all going to be flat fronts with a medium rise and a tapered leg to show of the EGs when I get them!

    Tonight:I'm still at the office as i write this.

    Sat outside my hooch and smoked a novelty cigar, didn't even have a near beer to go with it. Anyway, it was a Makers Mark flavored cigar. Overall a bit light for my tastes, but had a nifty sweet bite at the beginning of the pull. If anyone has a spare case of Cohibas they're looking to get rid of, I'll send you my address [​IMG]
