I'm buying my first suit tomorrow. Yeah, I know it's pathetic that I'm 31 and have never bought a suit. I've put it off for years, hoping that I'd wake up thin one day and would actually look forward to clothes shopping. Hopefully, it won't be too hellish. I'm thinking a charcoal pin stripe, classic, elegant. Can I wear a brown belt and shoes with a charcoal suit?

According to an email this morning, today is the fourteenth anniversary of Paul Monette's death. I have changed so much in 14 years, much of it due to Paul Monette's writing. Thank you, Paul, for your beauty and your anger. The userpic is my Monette, named for you.

Oh man I didn't realize A) it was the anniversary of Monette's death or B) that he is your cat's namesake (or is the cat HIS namesake, I always get that messed up!). Borrowed Time is one of my most reread books.

In the wee hours of this morning I suddenly, desperately wanted to reread Borrowed Time, but I didn't bring my omnibus Paul Monette with me when I moved, so I had to request it from the local library instead. And I had no idea about the anniversary. Whoa.

I love the idea of a charcoal gray suit, but I'm pretty sure you cannot wear a brown belt and shoes with it. Go for black. Please! :)
