    You're at work an hour early LaRue? Nasty.

    Sahib tried very hard to dissect your local vernacular - a mean feat to be sure. Lets refrain from providing glossaries when encouraging the expansion of his knowledge base. This exacerbates the situation and defeats the point.
    We don't have a choice for Sahib but to explain it...unless we can drop a Fire Stick into his cerebrum...

    Morning folks. So there's a meeting at work today, it is expected to hit 90F in the NYC metro area...and I pulled out my janelle mone performer's look - tied included, no blazer.

    Yup. All business today. I'll get a few looks in the meeting today for sure.

    I'm not a big fan of ties... just saying. I'd rather go for the blazer.

    It's quite warm here today and getting warmer tomorrow. Except they're saying thunderstorms in the afternoon.

    It's too hot today to do that. I could have gone with the sweater vest looks, but remember that I work with young people. So the tie is on for meetings and lunch, but off when clinic starts.

    Personally I like ties. I do like wear them as much, but I like ties. I biy yies based on look and feel. Too many of the cheap ties have grevat patrerns but feel like excrement to the touch.

    I gave my friend when he came up one of my favorite unworn ties with the small kerchief that goes in the front of the suit. It's a white tie base with black and grey patterns. Of course, it is a silk toe i got a few days ears ago on a killer discount. I've known him for 20 years so I know he'll take great care of it...and look really good wearing it too.

    I find the state of Amtrak very interesting since it is a government assisted national railroad that has to make a profit. As I sit here in another delay on NJ transit, I'm painfully reminded of how much of a state of excrement the US rail and transportation system is. And you wonder why Americans like their cars and kvetch about fuel prices...

    I was the first in my family.

    That's good that US passports last for 10 years. In some countries they're only 5 years. Which is annoying. Australia is 10.
    Children get a passport once every five years. My kids is onto the second one already☺

    International travel is still not within everyone's reach. For me my travel comes from family being away and work. Also I'm fortunate enough to afford it. I calculated that in the last four years I spent enough on tickets to buy two new cars!

    On a separate note I was the first one to get a passport and travel internationally in my family. I did get on a plane the first time when I traveled overseas, until then it was all trains.

    I like ties but hate doing the knots! Most of the tie knots I have are permanent, I loosen them enough to remove the tie and then put it back on. These days I rarely wear ties or blazers though.

    International travel is more affordable now than it's ever been. I'm not implying that it's simple but if you have a desire to go somewhere you should see about going sooner rather than later because there might not be a later. I know of too many stories of people putting off 'living' until their retirement. Only to retire and be dead two months later....

    Or retire and not have the funds to do anything.

    There are over 7 billion people on the planet and I still think that maybe 20% have the means to travel internationally without worrying about finances. So if 4 out of every 5 individuals can't do it, I would say it is out of reach for a vast majority of people.

    Even though international travel has become affordable one ticket would be greater than someone's yearly salary in quite a few countries in the world.

    I was thinking more US based and you went international. I see where you're coming from of course.

    Well first - smoke break, when a person goes and have a cigarette. So instead of saying break they say having a smoke.

    Smokeo - the O comes from the Australianization of the word. You'll find a lot of O's at the end of words in Australia.

    You'll also find a lot of shortened words in Australia as well.

    Oooh interesting I'm guessing it was used alot before or during the time people found out that smoking is bad for the smokers health. I wonder if the word cancer sticks was used too?

    Here's a harder one mainly because it's a reference. You can of course find the meaning on the internet.

    You've got buckleys, mate. According to MIA. :P

    "Gee-gee up in Ayr" is a horse he bet on at a track in Scotland.

    "Pub landlord had already been there" means his bar tab was paid with the money he won on the bet.

    I wore ties in high school and they taught us one knot. I used to be able to tie a bowtie too, but forgot how to.
