I, as you may have noticed from some of the prior selfies, wear a tie quite often. My 13-year old daughter is used to that. But, she had never seen me in a bowtie. I did use to wear bowties c. 1987 when I worked for Wang — given that this was a trademark of the founder and then CEO, Dr. An Wang. Quite a few of us, at Wang, wore bowties. Well around Christmas she made me get a bowtie so that I could wear it around New Year’s. So, I had to take some selfies. That is the story. SMILE.

Still some ways to go. Really want to lose 3 to 4 more pounds to get down to 142 pounds (10.1 stones, 64.5 kg) which I have known as an adult.

Wife and kids, INEXPLICABLY, are MAD that I have made an attempt to lose this weight. They want me FAT! I just can’t win. My life.

I was dressed up in my Christmas 2019 finery and it would have been a shame not to capture that. So, I did. Top one at home, before I left, and the other, at the ‘Sanders Theatre‘ before the show started — given that we were there well in time (and as such the bathrooms were rather empty).

Anura Guruge November 2019


Beaujolais Nouveau day. One of the few days in the year when you are likely to see a picture of I which is NOT a selfie — but, I will invariably be holding a glass (or drinking a glass) of Beaujolais Nouveau. So, I thought I should do a selfie without the glass of wine. This was at Market Basket, Rochester, before I got home with the bottles of wine.

We were back at the ‘Cinemagic‘ and taking ‘a selfie my way’ is de rigueur. I don’t think I have ever been to Cinemagic and left without taking a selfie. They have such great mirrors. Tailor made for my needs. I am sure I have taken more ‘selfies my way’ at Cinemagic than anywhere else. SMILE.

Selfies My Way — 1st Time In A Suit In Nearly 4-Years (October 19, 2019)!

This was I just before dashing off to the wedding of my niece-in-law in Maine. Yes, that was our hotel room. What makes this selfie special for I is the suit. I haven’t been in a suit in nearly 4-years. Yes, I wore a blazer or jacket BUT not a full suit — let alone a 3-piece. For 30+ years of my life I lived in a suit at least 5-days a week — and most of them were 3-piece. Wearing a suit was the most natural thing for I. I used to own (smile) quite a few suits. During the time I lived in a suit, I would typically have between 7-10 at a time. I would never wear the same suit two-days running — and ideally not in the same week. I was always rack-size. Didn’t need bespoke suits. I could always get one from a rack — and worst case have the pant legs hemmed. Anywho … I had to buy this suit for the wedding. Got it from JC Penney. It was cheap. But it looks OK. SMILE.

It is an art museum. It would be churlish not to exploit the large, well lit mirrors they have. So yes, another new location for ‘selfies my way‘. Actually I hadn’t been to the ‘Farnsworth‘ in 12 or 13-years. We went up to Maine, a day early (for the wedding) just so I could visit the ‘Farnsworth’. I like the ‘Farnsworth’. It is small, but has a great collection. Very intimate.
