Uniform? It’s a regular short-sleeved shirt.

Oh, it has epaulettes. In South Africa most of the "official" people here have shirts with them on. Also, it is a good thing to note I am not the only redheaded person on the forums.

I guess you could call them that. They’re sort of useless, but I loved the rest of the shirt, so I bought it anyway.

Unless the pics you’ve posted thus far are deceptive in their colour tones, you wouldn’t count as a redhead ’round these parts. I don’t even count as a proper redhead here, more of an auburn-brownhead.

For the most part, yes. The hair on the sides of my face is much lighter colored and doesn't show up well in pictures. But in this picture I was trying to compromise with the girlfriend and had trimmed the sides.

I am away from my home Mac so I had to post a link to a pic on my blog. Some
friends and I went camping over the long Columbus Day holiday weekend* and
we had Apple Cider donuts for breakfast on Sunday.
(Yes I know the pic is big but that is what the image re-sizer is for.)

*In the US this is a 3-day holiday weekend in early October to celebrate Columbus
"discovering" the Americas.

( Last edited by dcmacdaddy; Nov 12, 2008 at 12:56 PM. Reason: added clarifying info about Columbus Day.)
One should never stop striving for clarity of thought and precision of expression.
I would prefer my humanity sullied with the tarnish of science rather than the gloss of religion.

Ha! Good call. Too bad I don't have a pic of me smoking my pipe. Then you would be all up in the LOTR comparisons.

I have all three of those. Totally an impulse buy, but way too cute to pass up.

Now if only I had an actual use for them...

I wonder what it is about B&W that makes a photo instantly look better...

Nice fauxhawk.

Which is why almost every picture you'll ever see of me is in B&W or vintage B&W.



Thanks for the fauxhawk props. It's not as dramatic in these pictures as it is most days.

I remember seeing a pic of you on here previously.

And I agree, he’s still no redhead. That’s not a bad thing, by the way; I wish I were more of a regular auburn-brownhead and less of a redhead, but I’m stuck somewhere in between.

OH! They're actually black. Well, the side have a faint design on them, but they're black. There is a small silver line that gives that illusion.

The inside of the eyepieces are green too...

Glad you like them though. I don't know if they come in red or not. I'm scared to check on their site; I don't want my wife browsing my history and finding it.

Nice, I am going to check them out.

Is there any sort of model number on them or anything?

That is, btw, why Safari has a "Private Browsing" function.

I see some text that says "TH 3250 blkgrn 51 15-135."

It took me a while to read it (you know, since I had my glasses off and everything).
