If I were to die now, I'd die uncomfortable  
Getting ready for the company holiday party: I just ironed my shirt (which I'm convinced just serves to set the wrinkles in even deeper), and I'm actually wearing a tie.

Forecast for Hell:
Heavy Snow/Wind 
Hi: 32
Lo: -273

Anyone who knows me knows I don't wear ties. They're silly. I do lots of dumb things for fashion, but strangling myself to allow this ridiculous piece of cloth literally dangle out in front of me, serving no purpose whatsoever except to restrict my breathing and fall into my food, is just the epitome of human foolishness. I thought everyone had figured that out during the dotcom boom. All the internet companies understood making everyone uncomfortable doesn't do much for productivity (now if they'd only understood the ever important formula: Revenues - Expenses > 0 )

::sigh:: here I go...
Mood: asphyxiated

From the Ralph Lauren designers -

"In 1924, Jesse Langsdorf patented the modern tie, designed to elongate the silhouette and draw the beholder's focus up to the wearer's face. And while neckties have their foes and fans today, we're fans, agreeing with Langsdorf that they bring focus to one's face. On top of that, though, when paired with a well-fitting dress shirt, ties can be a smart, comfortable way for a man to express his good taste."

And trust me, you want people looking at your face ;-).

If your tie is restricting your breathing, maybe you should try a different knot style that doesn't require it to be so tightly cinched. I prefer the half-Windsor (it'll probably turn out that that's how you tie your ties :-p).
