It's Sunday morning, it's October, and it's finally dawning on me that such is life. Vague nonsense sounding observation, but point being that for the first October, like ever, I don't have any papers or problem sets to do over the weekend. I'm sorry, I'm still acclimating myself to the life of a post-undergrad. An exciting addition to my new non-student routine is HBO Go, motha effas. It was very out of character for my family to buy HBO given that we didn't get the Disney channel until I was a senior in high school, and that my current TV repertoire is filled with Masterpiece murder mysteries on PBS.
SO! I've decided to spend my semi/not at all-monumental first Sunday morning in October watching Argo on HBO. When I first saw Argo a couple of months ago, I happened upon a few serious life decisions: I realized that my career ambitions entailed being both in the CIA and a movie producer (damn you, Ben Affleck, you have it all), and that I needed to dress in 1970s attire in a nonironic way.
Argo 1970s is a little conservative and utilitarian--a corduroy situation, if you will. As such, a pair of corduroy pants and a sweater vest in burgundy, rust, brown, or in any other hue that resembles a bowel movement are incremental to the outfit. Add in a button-down shirt underneath the vest and a shearling jacket over it, plus a pair of glasses and a foulard around the neck, and you're a regular fugitive. (too far?). Oops, forgot about shoes: brown booties will do, but if you really want to be authentic, the Frye Campus Boots are the way to go.
