I fear that anyone that started following me on Twitter today because of my World Cup tweets will quickly become very uninterested in the rest of my tweets. It is all the #MEXvsNED and #VivaMexico hashtags, when it is really more that right now, I really do not like the Dutch. Let’s break it down, since I do not claim to know much about Futball, I will use what I know. Who has the better beaches: Mexico or The Netherlands? Who has the better food: Mexico or The Netherlands? So, I rest my case. Oh, one more comparison: Who is NOT a passive-aggressive, lying, childish, unprofessional former employer of mine? Yes, the answer in every case in MEXICO.

It is true, I may be putting my own emotions into the mix, but even if this was six months ago, before I ever even heard of Suitsupply, I would still want Mexico to win. I am just glad to be rid of those horrible Dutch people. I dare say they are worse than Germans.

Friday was my last day at Suitsupply, I start work (training, I suspect) at Tiffany & Co. on Monday. My life will be back in balance. I will have time to do more than next week’s laundry, I will go to the gym, I will have a work/life balance. And (I hope), I will have and employer that knows what it is doing. The great things about working at Suitsupply were the people I worked with in Seattle and the customers that I helped and formed relationships with. I sold a suit that was worn during a performance at the Grammys. That’s a major highlight. The rest, the negativity, the hurt feelings, all that will fade. I am just lucky to have the new opportunity in front of me.

This week on Waldina, I added Caberet, It Should Happen To You and Harold and Maude to the Required Viewing film series; celebrated the birthdays of Pearl S. Buck and George Orwell; and celebrated my last day at Suitsupply.

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

And this great photo series of James Dean:

This week over at @TheRealSPA, my little corner of Twitter, I trashed-talked The Netherlands (obvi), I lamented my decision to eat all that corn, I posted a list of the business that are actively working to lower Seattle’s minimum wage, I celebrated my last day, I posed photos from Instagram, I explained how to mass-unsubscribe from unwanted emails, I asked @Target if they allow people to openly carry firearms (they didn’t reply), and posted links to my Wasp & Pear and Waldina posts. Most importantly, I change my profile from “suit seller” to “diamond dealer.”
