1. being professional looking

I was in traffic court yesterday and I was the only one out of 100 people who had dress slacks and a collared shirt on. My ticket was for rolling through a stop sign. My argument was that I drive a manual and up a hill you don't need to step on the brakes to stop. The Solicitor gave me a warning and I didn't pay a fine. Now, I don't know it it affected anything but I'm sure it didn't hurt.

15. Well now I just feel silly by comparison.

However:

16. I don't remember if I've seen him before or not,

but found this similar quote from him:

I don't have back-to-front ram's legs, but I feel like I have. All of my comedy stems from the fact that I feel like I'm half-man, half-animal. A man is funny, but a man with antlers is hilarious. And I'm going to see this experiment through to the end.

18. If you'd seen him, you'd remember.

I'm slightly obsessed with him and his comedy partner Julian Barratt. They're The Mighty Boosh. I don't think I could handle all the ugly shit in this world without them.

This is a lot more than I'm generally willing to own up to on DU.

10. Acts of Sedition Against Attire Fascism

I worked for a company that required everyone to dress the same.

In fact they provided ugly, ill-made shirts manufactured in a third world country for all to wear. The fabric was thin and white. The seams puckered after laundering. No matter what method of cleaning was used, every shirt would look yellowed and aged within a few weeks.

Individuality was not value added in the corporate view. Management felt the act of selecting clothing in the morning was a waste of time, since employees should be focused on other tasks like being a team player.

And yet, no one was supportive of black, red, and cheetah print brassieres.

17. So should I wear a vest with my suit jacket or just the suit jacket when working the Drive Thru?

22. This is why I wear pajamas to work.

The boss has written me up a few times but I keep telling him I am dressing for the job I want.

7 more years til I can retire.
