I went shopping this morning,
I'm so used to shopping online,
I forgot the stores may not be open as early as I'd wish.
I had been up all night
and wanted to be done with this as soon as possible.
Once I got there,
I saw it would open only at 9:30 am.
Waiting half-an-hour won't kill me!!
I walked around,
looking at the morning sun shining brightly on the surrounding buildings.
What you see above and the next two pictures is the Astral Building,
or at least,
my interpretation of it...
The Dominion Square Building,
its facade in the shade as the sun traveled behind it.
The BNP-Paribas Building,
always interesting with its many angles and reflections.
I spotted this next to Les Cours Mont-Royal.
Much like this figure on an urn,
I may have seemed a tad worried
as I have big plans for a cocktail I have to attend this week.
It is not mandatory but it would be bad form not to show up...
On the invitation,
it mentions "tenue de ville",
but I haven't worn a suit in years and have nothing of the kind in my wardrobe.
This last decade has seen me evolve[?] into your regular Jeans-and-T-shirt kinda guy...
If I used to enjoy a little glam in my wardrobe once upon a time,
now I can't stand to fuss about such things.
So I might as well have a little fun with this...
If they expect me to dress perhaps like people in Westmount do,
I'll give them a taste instead of the Gay Village.
It may raise a few eyebrows,
but what the heck!!
It's my party too!!!
Let's just say they'll remember me...
I found everything I wanted
and dug in my stash for a few vintage accessories.
I still have to decide between 1960's cuff links and tie pin
or a 1980's neck clasp;
either will go well with my new black tuxedo shirt.
I won't be wearing my usual studded belt but a regular one,
plain with a sleek buckle,
to go with plaid Bermudas,
you read it right!!
Bermudas and my army boots!!!
Welcome to South Central Boys!!
I bet they won't see this one coming...
I'm not showing up in a kilt!!!
Told you I had a big plan!!
I even got the bracelet of that new watch they gave me for my 25th fixed.
It fits me now [properly]!!
Gotta shine those boots!!
