Don’t fool with the cool / No te metas con lo genial

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

WHEN I GOT OUT OF BED Sunday, I quickly threw on some clothes for my morning indoors. San Geraldo took one look and said, “That outfit could be featured on your blog.” I glanced in the nearest mirror. I must be numbed by what I’ve seen around town. This doesn’t at all offend my highly refined style sensibility. Still, I changed before I went out. And while we’re on the subject of super cool, check out my new desk lamp. I’m writing from breakfast at Meson Salvador. SG had to do lab work this morning, so we decided to meet here after. A Wednesday treat.

Nutrition and Fitness Report
Stretching: Only once Monday (and my sciatica acted up Tuesday morning). Three times Tuesday. Once so far today. 
Walking: 6.5 km / 4 miles Tuesday. 
Gym: Great chest and back workout Monday. Arms and shoulders in an hour.

Notes: No sweets. Chupito (shot) of Pionono (like Bailey’s Irish Cream, only better) at Mesón Salvador after lunch Monday. OK, two shots. I drank SG’s, as well.


CUANDO SALÍ DE LA CAMA el domingo, rápidamente me puse algo de ropa para mi mañana en el interior. San Geraldo echó un vistazo y dijo: “Ese atuendo podría aparecer en tu blog.” Miré en el espejo más cercano. Debo estar aturdido por lo que he visto en la ciudad. Esto no ofende en absoluto mi sensibilidad de estilo muy refinado. Aún así, cambié antes de salir. Y ya que estamos en el tema de supe guay, mira mi nueva lámpara de escritorio. Les escribo desde el desayuno en Meson Salvador. SG tuvo que hacer análisis esta mañana, así que decidimos reunirnos aquí después. Un regalo de miércoles.

Informe de Nutrición y Estado Físico
Estiramiento: Solo una vez el lunes (y mi ciática se activó el martes por la mañana). Tres veces el martes. Una vez hasta ahora hoy.
Caminando: 6,5 km / 4 millas el martes.
Gimnasio: Gran entrenamiento de pecho y espalda el lunes. Brazos y hombros en una hora.

Notas: Sin dulces. Chupito de Pionono (como Bailey’s, solo que mejor) en Mesón Salvador después del almuerzo del lunes. Bien, dos chupitos. También bebí SG’s.

  1. oooo Burn by Jerry!! Hahahaha… I think I’m affected by the years here too. I think you fit right in and you look great! Super fancy lamp! We passed by Iceland the other day and Pedro told me to get ‘fancy chips’ and then we laughed at the level of ‘fancy’ in our lives if chips with strange flavors is the standard of fancy these days! Enjoy your day!

  2. At least you changed before leaving the house 🙂 .

    Cool lamp. Mine desk lamp only has a USB port. My phone is too old to use one of those charging pads. I keep taking on my DD’s cast off I-phones (thereby saving a ton of money).

    1. Mary:
      There was no debate about going out like that, although it would make for another great photo. I am loving this lamp.

  3. I’m gonna have to comedown on the side of SG here. Had the shorts had the same blue as the shirt, you would have received the Eccentric pass.

    Love the lamp; sleek and cool/

    1. Bob.
      Those aren’t shorts, they’re Ralph Lauren lounging wear. Long pants. AKA, pajama bottoms. I am so happy with the lamp.

    1. Debra:
      I still wouldn’t leave he house in something like that but, yeah, a year ago I couldn’t even have put it on.

  4. The stripes and plaid are color coordinated so no problem! Your fitness reports are starting to make me feel like a loser…especially as I’ve had a knee problem (pain, swelling, prednisone, and now physical therapy) and cannot even do my regular morning walk….

    1. Frank:
      The stripes were actually blue and white (hard to tell in the photo), so not even color coordinated. It’s so frustrating when you want to do physical activity but your body won’t allow it. Hope the knee is better soon.

  5. Ha! OK, well, he’s totally right, but at least your color scheme is more subtle than some of the outfits you’ve featured here in the past. 🙂

    1. Steve:
      Yes, as far as local style goes, I’m Rodeo Drive. (Anyway, the pants are by Ralph Lauren.)

  6. Okay. The stripes with the plaid. You’ve officially lost it. Oy with the poodles already, Scoot.


  7. That outfit was a bold move, Mitchell! I have looked, covetously, at lamps like those online. Once my current lamp bites the dust and I’ll go for it.

    1. mcpersonalspace54:
      I should start a new style trend. Oh, wait, it’s already been started. But I should do it WELL. By they way, I hope YOU’RE doing well!

  8. It’s not too bad…unless you have Crocs on. Then this friendship will have to sail, lmao!

    1. Mistress G Borghese:
      You’ll be pleased to know I don’t own Crocs. However, I did once own a pair of DAWGS (a Canadian imitation). Bought them from some guys at a tradeshow I was working when I needed something for the pool. (I’m sorry to tell you, they were frickin’ comfortable!)

    1. Walt the Fourth:
      Leroy Merlin. I noticed you have one in your town, but the version of the lamp I found there doesn’t have all the bells and whistles. (When I bought this one I looked at the wrong price tag and thought it was only €23.99 (and was surprised at how cheap it was). Wrong! It was €59.99. Still, a very cool look. And I love the light it provides.

    1. Margaret Butterworth:
      I got it a Leroy Merlin store. I don’t know if you have those where you are. Made by a Spanish company called Avance. I love it!
