Perplexing things

* Weatherunderground has calculated a 2% chance of rain for this evening with 0% cloud cover.
* Is this dress navy blue or black with a blue cast?
* Does anyone ever notice when one wears black sweater and shoes with a really dark blue navy dress?

From the wikipedia page on Navy Blue, 'The Canadian Forces Dress Instructions specify that, " 'navy blue' is a tone of black".'

* Received a confidential email message that included a link to verify my identity. After a couple of clicks the system lets me know that the server that i was connecting to has an untrusted certificate. (This is apparently the Microsoft cloud email solution's active directory rights management software.) I was grabbing screen images of the cert which mostly looked legit when i received a new message from the same sender prefaced with "Resending without restrictions to enable viewing."

My 'Navy' peacoat is black. I think it's fine to wear black shoes with any blue dress.

It was more the black sweater that i was pondering, but i do know no one who i saw today would have noticed much less cared if it clashed.

Considering how many different shades of black there are... Some folks would just write it off as differing shades of black instead of bruised.

My mother was incredibly picky about her clothes. I think it had to do with being the daughter of a naval officer who had worked his way up through the ranks when most naval officers were from well to do families. It's something that my sister is managing to try not to pass on to her kids, i'm happy to say.
