Are You Amish?

March 23, 2022

No. However, there is a reason I dress this way.

I like wearing the same clothes every day. It frees me to think and do other things. I used to simply wear jeans and a polo shirt, but this uniform would not work for many occasions. To remedy this problem, I've decided to start wearing a suit every day. All I need now are dress shoes, a jacket and a tie to go with my pants.

I have a complicated relationship with technology. Since most computerized things require proprietary software, I try to reject most of it.

I love the Pennsylvania German language. I study it with the help of Doug Madenford's PA Dutch 101 resource. I practice with Amish people whenever I can. I also study Yiddish, and find the similarities between the languages to be fascinating.
