New Chapter June 4, 2008 / Neil Kramer / 60 Comments As I begin this new chapter in my life, I promise to be honest and open with you, hiding nothing, although I will leave it to your imagination to figure out if I am wearing pants or not. Life in General lifelovemarriageseparation Previous post Northern Exposure Next post Realistic Female Characters, Take Two 60 Comments kat June 4, 2008 at 6:54 am i vote no pants! Reply Angella June 4, 2008 at 6:57 am Ha! This was definitely a funny way to start the day. Thanks, Neil 🙂 Reply Backpacking Dad June 4, 2008 at 7:05 am I’m going to say you’re wearing chaps. Exactly, what ARE chaps? Reply churlita June 4, 2008 at 7:08 am Pants are highly overrated. Reply PocketCT June 4, 2008 at 7:08 am I think I can see the reflection of pants or no pants in the small stripe that is the towel holder. Or maybe I am imagining it. Reply ingrid June 4, 2008 at 7:12 am Neil! You’re just trying to tickle our keyboards aren’t you? My votes: 1. spandex pants 2. a quirky little thong with feathers 3. titillating tights (like superman) Reply Kathy June 4, 2008 at 7:20 am I like Ingrid’s answers. Boxers? A Towel? Reply Tuck June 4, 2008 at 7:22 am Did you shave the top part of your chest? Reply Annika June 4, 2008 at 7:23 am I feel pretty sure that if you were not wearing pants, you wouldn’t have been able to stop yourself from telling us. So I vote pants. Reply Neil June 4, 2008 at 7:34 am Tuck — yes, good eye! I also tried to shave my back, but ended up just cutting myself. I had gone to the beach yesterday and felt odd that I was the only guy there with hair on his body. Everyone else was a vollyeball/surfer dude. But as I was doing my chest, I received a phone call, and never finished shaving, and Sophia told me that it was going to just be all prickly, so I now have a half-shaved chest. Reply sizzle June 4, 2008 at 7:44 am Pants Free! Reply LVGurl June 4, 2008 at 7:44 am I bet you’re wearing pants, because your mom reads. Everything okay…? Reply Neil June 4, 2008 at 7:52 am LvGurl — Actually, the first woman to ever see me pants-free was my mother. Reply kristen June 4, 2008 at 7:52 am you might not have pants on, but i’d guess you’re definitely wearing smalls. Reply Finn June 4, 2008 at 7:53 am *swoons* No pants… please? Reply psychomom June 4, 2008 at 8:06 am Hi Mr. Penis and Neil! Reply Mr Lady June 4, 2008 at 8:06 am It would appear that you’ve got enough hair from the nipples down to be able to get away with no pants anyway. 🙂 You should have seen it before I tried to shave it off. Reply nancypearlwannabe June 4, 2008 at 8:09 am I vote yes on the pants. Reply Arjewtino June 4, 2008 at 8:44 am I’m more curious as to what’s in that see-through bag behind you. Reply Katherine June 4, 2008 at 8:45 am You’re too skinny. I vote you eat something. If it’s hot soup, put on some pants first. Reply Annie June 4, 2008 at 8:50 am Neil, you are ahunk :-). I vote no pants. Reply Lynda June 4, 2008 at 8:56 am I have a really good imagination! Reply sa_scully June 4, 2008 at 9:00 am No pants, but shorts. Reply Katherine June 4, 2008 at 9:00 am Also, can’t stop thinking about this now… http://youtube.com/watch?v=HcQVfOaq_4o&feature=related Reply kenju June 4, 2008 at 9:02 am Maybe long black socks and white sneakers? LOL Reply Neil June 4, 2008 at 9:06 am Arjewtino — That’s where we keep the soap and shampoos we steal from hotels, but one of the straps on the bag broke, so it just hangs there like that. Reply Neil June 4, 2008 at 9:09 am Katherine — funny. Reply will June 4, 2008 at 9:22 am The kids on your facebook friends list are going to love this shot. Reply Whit June 4, 2008 at 9:30 am If you are wearing pants then you have on the exact opposite of my daily uniform. Pants are for going outside. Reply laurie June 4, 2008 at 9:45 am I love that picture. I love new chapters! Pants optional. Reply Jenny, Bloggess June 4, 2008 at 9:47 am Forget the pants. I want you to put on those clear buttless chaps hanging on the door behind you. I like that your clear buttless chaps have pockets. Mine don’t. (This is where I’d put the sad smiley face if I used sad smiley faces.) Reply Rattling the Kettle June 4, 2008 at 10:25 am New chapter, my ass. You’re just hoping this will titillate some of your female readers, and maybe one of them will invite you to stay with her for a wild weekend. Reply miguelina June 4, 2008 at 10:33 am Hmm. I think you’re wearing pants. But why take this picture now? Are you submitting it to Hair Thursday? Reply Neil June 4, 2008 at 10:36 am Rattling — Uh, yes. Miguelina — I’m still waiting for Whoorl to give me my shot. Reply stepping over the junk June 4, 2008 at 11:58 am WOOT! (You weren’t kidding, I thought you were kidding!) Reply V-Grrrl June 4, 2008 at 12:09 pm Neil, Don’t shave your chest, OK? And does the bathroom need painting or does the mirror need cleaning? (Critiquing your bathroom is my way of avoiding the pants question…) Reply Karla June 4, 2008 at 12:40 pm I think any new chapter should involve a few bathroom decorations. Reply Diane Mandy June 4, 2008 at 1:23 pm As there is no towel on the rack, I’m would assume it’s wrapped around your waist sans the pants. Reply barbetti June 4, 2008 at 1:44 pm I say no pants. I think new chapters should start fresh, naked fresh. Reply Neil June 4, 2008 at 1:50 pm For those interested more in the bathroom decor than whether I am wearing pants, Sophia and I have three bathrooms. One is the main bathroom, where we brush our teeth and comb our hair. The second is on the lower level, and it is the smaller guest bathroom. The guest bathroom is where the cute dolphin toilet seat is located, which I showed to you a few weeks ago. This is the bathroom attached to the office and it is basically where I shower and shave and read the New Yorker when I want to get away from it all. So, blame me for the shoddy decor. It also has poor ventilation so the whole room steams up during a shower and we’re always fighting mold and mildew on the shower wall. And get this… this bathroom is carpeted, making it even more of a health hazard. Sophia hardly ever steps foot in here. Got it? Reply Scarlet Hip June 4, 2008 at 2:36 pm You are such a whore. Reply Neil June 4, 2008 at 2:48 pm I think you mean gigolo. Isn’t a whore always a woman? Reply Jane June 4, 2008 at 3:50 pm I’m looking at the man in the mirror, I’m asking him to change his way-ays, No message could have been any clearer, If you wanna make the world a better place, Take a look at yourself and SHAVE. I totally vote for the shave down. And some nice chinos and a button up shirt. Reply Neil June 4, 2008 at 4:37 pm Jane — don’t you mean a button down shirt? Reply Jane June 4, 2008 at 4:41 pm No, Neil. I mean button UP! LOL. Reply Postmodern Sass June 4, 2008 at 6:00 pm I’m OK with hiding. Fine with obfuscating. Prefer editorial discretion. Please don’t feel you have to be 100% open and honest on my account. I may have to stop reading you. 🙂 Reply heyjoe June 4, 2008 at 7:30 pm That picture doesn’t leave ENOUGH to the imagination so far as I’m concerned. Reply Non-Highlighted Heather June 4, 2008 at 8:50 pm Oh good god. You’re not going to start doing those partially clothed Sundays and nearly naked Wednesdays or whatever the hell those are. Reply Neil June 4, 2008 at 9:41 pm No, Heather. Just a once a year thing to get it out of my system. Reply JP/deb June 4, 2008 at 9:49 pm Nakey Neil… no pants is my vote 🙂 Keep it real, babe. JP/deb Reply Karl June 4, 2008 at 11:15 pm Welcome to the Naked Bloggers Club! Reply better safe than sorry June 5, 2008 at 3:49 am there is no way you’re nekkid!!!

Reply HRH @ June Cleaver Nirvana June 5, 2008 at 6:22 am Would it be wrong to slightly yearn the old less honest, less open Neil who wore clothes? Reply Mattie June 5, 2008 at 3:18 pm Oh. My. God. I do believe I’m havin’ a case of the vapors. What a gorgeous, gorgeous man. Reply Mattie June 5, 2008 at 3:19 pm AND, your hair is growing back, looking unkempt. SO sexy.

Reply Sarcastic Mom June 9, 2008 at 9:39 pm Ah, see? This was hilarious, quirky, silly, adorable, and unexpected, all at once. What’s not to love about that?
