Person of Authority & Maniquens

I did several things after work today:

I went shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond for Andrew & Michelle's wedding gift. Halfway through, some lady came up to me and started asking me questions about the store. When I just stared at her with a quizical look on her face, she asked "You work here, right?" Um, no, and I have no idea why she would think that (especially given I was wearing my "summer casual" work attire), but this kind of thing happens to me fairly often. Apparently I look like a Person of Authority.

I also went shopping at S&K Men's Store for a new suit jacket. All the ones I have are either from when I was 20 lbs heavier or 20 lbs lighter, so I need a new one for this weekend. S&K is going out of business, so everything is drastically reduced, and I ended up finding one that wasn't too expensive and a good fit. I also found these:
I have no idea why suit maniquens need packages, but there you go. The tags on them say $60, but something tells me that might be negotiable, especially considering the market for them is probably a bit limited. Maybe I'll go back later in the week and barter with them.

Random Sunday Thoughts

  1. Impromptu 4 hour trips with one of your best friends can be very fun, particularly when it results in good seafood for lunch and an icecream sunday.
  2. For whatever reason, I keep getting into peoples' way today. On the street, in the parking lot, in the grocery store, it just keeps happening.
  3. Herbivour men in Japan are not interested in sex.
