IMHO: Black is the new black December 8, 2016

o say that I love black would be an understatement.  I own exactly two colored garments and they are both pajama pants.  So rare are the days when I wear blue denim that comments from friends (and the occasional bold professor) inevitably follow.

The frumpiest of Swedes would be, like, the president of Tabard (if that’s even a thing?).  To boost […]
