Welcome to the seventh day in my award-winning, record-breaking, trend-setting series of Christmas ties.
In scanning the internet this evening, I see that there are dozens of websites devoted to people wearing ugly ass Christmas ties. They all refer to this blog as their inspiration, however, and that deeply troubles me. How many relationships have I ruined because the guy wanted to wear a tie as horrid-looking as any of mine, much to the chagrin of the wife? I'll never know. I'll also never know how many women have ogled me and salivated over the explicit pictures of me here in this series as well as the unexpurgated pictures on my Facebook.
Anecdotally, though, I know it's a lot. A whole lot.
These pictures were taken at Halifax city hall, at the bell tower, a section not normally open to the public. My friend Dawn Sloane arranged this special access, and took the pictures. As a city councillor, she can do this kind of thing. Me? If I showed up there and asked to go up to the bell tower, I'd be spectacularly unsuccessful in that request. Dawn can open doors. I'm glad she's on my side.
You'll notice that the clock says 9:05. I can tell you that the pics were taken during lunch time. Why the discrepancy. It's simple: this is on purpose. The Halifax Explosion, which killed nearly 2000 people on December 6th, 1917, occurred at this time of the morning. To pay lasting tribute to this somber event, the clock face is forever set to that time.
I am so lucky to be able to present such interesting tie shots for you this year. The month is young, and I have many more ties to show off to you. I hope to be able to cover more interesting and unusual downtown Halifax locations for you.
Come on, people. I know you read these posts. I want lots of comments, so start writing!
