I'm a situational non-conformist, not belonging to any one camp. Friday's are and have been Hawaiian Shirt Day. I've never worn one, though I did ask my boss if I could wear a Hawaiian-print muumuu on Fridays as my own personal act of defiance, assuming he'd say, "No."

So even though I believed it a joke at the time, one of my coworkers who recently returned from his Hawaiian vacation did indeed purchase me a "Made in Hawaii" mu'umu'u, which I wore to work today much to the amusement of the entire staff. But it was the fact that I wore it in my car, and walked from the parking lot, through the building, to my desk which impressed them the most. Well, that and walking to and from the cafeteria.

Whom do I more closely resemble:

Tom Selleck



Homer Simpson

Poll #1434385 Hawaiian Muumuu

Whom do I more closely resemble

Tom Selleck
Homer Simpson

In the morning meeting we go around the room and our boss asks us what we're working on that day. I replied, "I feel pretty."

You flatter me, ma'am.

I scratched my eyeballs out and poured acid into the sockets...just to try to remove this vision from my head!

It failed, I still see this...EGADS!

I've had such a lousy day, but this post made me laugh like a hyena. The socks and footwear provide the ultimate finishing touch!

I have a fan under my desk billowing my mumu.

Oh my God! I want to scratch my eyes out and drink until I forget!

Re: WOW!

Please... PLEASE, PLEASE, dear God tell me you are wearing under pants. NO, never mind, I don't want to know.

Glamor: DON'T! The Hawaiian outfit does little to enhance your physique but I vote NO on those ugly Clogs. It's of little matter to me that you say they are comfortable. In nurses white color as well? Just wrong.

I do admire your rebel spirit against a normal dress code. Heh heh. ';)

Does this dress make me look fat?

This vision of loveliness strolled into the cafeteria and....you coulda heard a pin drop...absolute silence!

That is quite an accomplishment, as we are a fully "diverse" company...accepting of all lifestyles.

Thanks for the IM on this one. Me thinks I need my happy place now to forget this horrendous pic.

Is there a midget dressed as a cowboy on a tricycle in your happy place?

You were right...

When you said I'd cry. I too am going to have to consume large quantities of adult beverages to make the pain go away.

Re: You were right...

I feel pretty.

I admire your hutzpah!

and I love your ability to bring controversy to the forefront - even on a personal level.

I think blue would have suited you better - a nice bright tropic blue!

Thanks! I was attempting to show that not all Arabs are terrorists after 9/11 by dressing as one for Halloween...One lady approached me, got up in my grill, and yelled, "YOU MUST HAVE A LOT OF JESUS IN YOU BOY!"

Not the smartest thing I've ever done. This was easy, comparatively ;)

At time like this, I wish I was illiterate.

And blind.

OMFG.....I will totally admit that you have a lot more courage and b***s than I have! I would NEVER in a million years do that!

The ballisest thing I ever did was wear my keffia & thobe on Halloween 2001.

In Texas.

I honestly thought I was going to be shot.

You are awesome.

I particularly like that it is a knee-length muumuu. :D
glodowg at 2009-07-24 17:26 (UTC) (Link)
I have a full length one he could borrow for his next "formal" occasion!

Dude it has its benefits. You get to wear shorts!!!

When I was at AT&T, if our home AT&T long distance package sales dropped the week before we had to wear a Pepto-Bismal pink short sleeve polo type shirt on Friday. I loved it because I did nt have to wear a long sleeve shirt and tie.

You look pretty. Don't let Tony see you in that it may give him some ideas!!!
ehowton at 2009-07-24 18:15 (UTC) (Link)
You get to wear shorts!!!

Precisely. I find it odd that I'm not allowed to wear shorts, but its okay for me to wear a dress? That's messed up.

I actually own an authentic Magnum shirt like the one Tom Selleck is wearing in the picture.

Have you ever seen Disney's Meet the Robinson's???
