I just don’t get fashion

Nice Tie!

The world is just not fair. I mean really, if I wore this pink and black striped tie, people would laugh at me. But if Jessica Alba wears it, she's "edgy" or "trendy" or "hip", or whatever it is that the young people are saying now.

You know, that very well might be one of my old ties.

You might be asking yourself, how did Mark find this stuff? After all, as popular as Ms. Alba might be in the geek crowd, you don't see many references to her on slashdot or digg. Unfortunately, my wife's love of E! and Hollywood Gossip has rubbed off on me, and The Superficial has made it into my daily bloglines reading list.

I'm pathetic.
