Getting to Know You, March 2021


Recommended Posts

The rules as they currently stand (in addition to all regular forum rules):

 

1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or some thing) I will post a question.

1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day (or send a recently asked one!) a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 

2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
3. Questions are going to be posted sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.

 

The first question shall be posted after a brief pause to prevent the merging of posts.

On days that I choose to wear dresses, not much has changed. But now that I work from home full time, I no longer wear jeans. Stretchy dress pant yoga pants are a girl's best friend on Monday mornings, and every other morning.

I've never heard the term "Monday Best", but if I weren't working, I would suspect it would be my usual comfy pair of pants (formerly a pair of Tripp NYC's or Ghasts, now, uhm... Hiking pants from Eddie Bauer) and a relaxed, loose fitting yet out of the way t-shirt (typically Fox or Under Armor). 

 

If it's work?  It's work provided golf shirt and work provided black pants.  I get to choose the colour of my socks and underwear, if that counts? ::P:  (hint: socks are black, since that's what I wear as they don't get sweat stains in work boots)

Can I arguably say I work from home?  Waiting for them to call you back to work counts as "working from home" when you have to keep an eye on any inbound phone calls, right?  

 

I dress depending on how the weather is outside, but usually - at no surprise to anyone who read my earlier answer - it's relaxed but not too loose t-shirt and shorts.  Pants only if it's too cold outside (I'm not fond of most pants), and I almost always have a hoodie at my disposal, with a thickness that depends on the season and forecast. 

 

Yes, I wear a hoodie in -30C weather.  I'm usually wearing at least one liner inside said hoodie though!

Well since I normally wear my uniform when I'm at work, things have changed.

With the pandemic I work a lot from home and then I'm in my civilian clothes.

 

Nothing special..jeans/sweater or shirt.

Occassionaly I have 37kg of Boxer Dog on my lap, I don't know if that counts as some sort of plaid..

Haven't had to wear work clothes for a long time now, so these days it's always the same sweatpants and tee-shirt combo.

“Monday Best” is a new term to me, too.  My office has adapted to the pandemic by sending most everyone home, so, since last July or so, I have been physically showing up only on Wednesday.  So, for a work-at-home Monday, it’s usually a geeky t-shirt, fleece, and blue jeans at this cold time of the year; geeky t-shirt and cargo shorts duirng the summer.  I have to have pockets...

Like every other day, tee shirt, jeans, & a open over shirt (flannel when it is cold). The jeans & over shirt are paint/glue stained for at home or clean for trips outside the house.

Today's "Monday Best" are a pretty worn out pair of pj pants (they've been patched at least twice from my catching the pockets on the arms of my desk chair) and a very worn out Incursion t-shirt with a WW2 German zombie on the front and which has at least three...oops, 4 holes in it. Obviously Monday is a "camera off" day ::D:

 

Since work in the office is "business casual", you could say that my work attire has changed...a bit.....in the almost a year I've been working from home.

Almost always jeans or athletic pants, t-shirts, and at this time of year a sweatshirt or a fleece to stay warm. If I ever get to work again, it'll probably be whatever the dress code requirement is, though historically my jobs have fallen into the same category. Only once did I try to wear khakis and polos, but eventually enough chemicals ate holes into them that I fell back to my trusty outfit.

 

I really don't like fancy dress outside of special occasions (think of that scene from Wonder Woman where she's trying on all the "modern" outfits, only a male version).

Same as every day. Henley and slacks.  I retire from home so no change for 5 years 1 month.

Jeans and some sort of nice/dressy shirt appropriate to the weather.

      The rules: as they were last month (in addition to all regular forum rules) except where I sneakily changed them:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question. †
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day, a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... ††
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to Talespinner or Morihalda… 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      8. Pix always welcome.
       
       
      The first question will need to be posted after a brief (10 minute) pause to foil the merging of posts.
      The footnotes, because I can't resist doing †††footnotes:
       
      † I will aim for 0600 Reaper/Nottingham time.
      ††  If subs and backstops could wait until 11AM in Reaper/Denton's timezone to see if I remember.
      ††† …because I re-remembered how to do the dagger ( † ) symbol.
