It’s almost cold again today. I was glad I could wear my YY turtleneck again. This was one of those perfect outfit days. I was comfortable and not thinking about what I was wearing. These YY pants and top have been two of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I always want to put them on.
I got my hair cut last night and the stylist did a great job. She really listened to what I wanted and even stopped to show me what she was doing and ask if I wanted anything changed. I was impressed. There’s a ridiculous amount of salons in this area and most of them are crap to mediocre. I may have finally found one I like.
Apparently my haircut and outfit really caught peoples’ attention at work.
Shop supervisor: Whoa, what’s with the ninja look?
Him: You’re all in black!
Me: I almost always wear black.
Him: …. Actually now that you mention it, yeah you do, but you still look like a ninja today.
Later on my boss noticed.
Boss: Look at you! All decked out and with a new haircut. What’s up, Sprocket!
Boss: Yeah, from the SNL skit? You ever see the sprocket one?
He then showed me a video on his phone of the SNL skit with several guys with very short hair all dressed in black turtlenecks and black pants dancing while singing something about sprockets. He continued to call me Sprocket for the rest of the day.
The rest of the day was busy with new client work. We are late on their orders (of course!) so I had to send out an email to all the departments about wanting regular updates on the product lots. I knew the calm I’d been feeling in the office lately wasn’t quite right. I’ve been waiting for the next earthquake to shake me into action again and of course it’s here now with a new client and late work.
Z bought a VR headset, Odyssey by Samsung. It’s funny watching him walk around the room with the headset on and controllers in his hands, moving awkwardly. I did the same thing too when he let me wear it for a little bit. He got the updated Skyrim game that’s made for VR. That game was already gorgeous and now feeling inside the game itself gives it a whole new level of awesomeness.
