Another UCF T-Shirt Spotted In The Wild!


Since the cat's out of the bag, I can now post a pic of me in the lovely loot Janiece sent to all of us. I deem it excellent. And don't ask WTF that pose is. I have no idea.

BTW, this is my usual work uniform. I may put on something less casual if I have to meet with some big mucky-muck or I'm scouting high-end places, but I've never worn a tie to work a single day in my life! Suck it cubicle monkeys!

I'm glad you like it, Nathan.

And I get to wear my jammies to work if I so desire, so your taunting affects me not at all.

Bwahahaha!

I had hoped that my "package" would have arrived while I was away, but alas, still nothing.

You look very relaxed at work Nathan...that is a good thing!

I'm trying to decide if I can get away with wearing my shirt to work this week. (It's break week for the university, but MD, PT, and OT students are starting classes.)

Ilya said...

Us cubicle monkeys have been largely tie-free for the last ten-eleven years. Although, with seniority, comes a certain expectation of wearing formal attire at key junctions.

Now, showing my legs off at the office would not be anything I could accomplish with impunity. On that, you beat me hands down.

Nathan said...

It's worse than that Ilya. You can't see it but I'm wearing sandals.

... and going commando. :)

Jim Wright said...

Me, I just wear whatever the hell I want. My boss is pretty dammed cool.

Oh, wait...

Bawahahahahahaha!

Jim Wright said...

Oh, hey, I like the new banner. A lot. Just saying.

And just because I'm drifting off topic, I like "Oops we broke the building"

In fact I want a Oops, we broke the building t-shirt. I do. I'm lustful this morning.

Nathan said...

Jim, That banner makes me think of the Monty Python theme music. I may have to set if up to play it when you open the web site...just a few bars.

Jeri said...

Please, no involuntary website music. Please don't go there.

Otherwise, nice t-shirt modeling skills. Personally, I'm in sweatpants and a non-UCF tshirt after a 2:30 arrival home this a.m.

Anyone else zoom in on the stuff on the wall to see if we could see when Angelina Jolie and Brad Pit were going to be on set?

Nathan said...

No Angelina. No Brad.

And I took down the one piece of paper off the wall that would have given anything else away.

But Good-on-ya fer tryin'.

I'm with Ilya, us cubicle monkeys don't have to wear ties. I wore one on my first day and my boss told me to take it off.

MWT said...

I wore my UCF shirt to work last week (along with shorts and slipper-sneakers). Didn't get a comment from anyone, good OR bad. :|

Nathan said...

I've had three people ask me about it.

Jeri said...

We had people ask about it at the con.

I explained it as an informal online blogging/writing/social group that met on Scalzi's blog & discussion board and grew from there.

Of course, I could have said we were an online association of tentacle porn, stinky tofu and gardening fanciers. But that would have confused folks. ;)

And cats. Don't forget the cats. And rants. And Boogie.

And back in my cubicle days, tie were mandatory. Glad to see they're starting to fade. I always found them horribly uncomfortable and stupid.

Saqib said...

yeah they always seem to get in the way. I remember a prefect strangers episode, where balki's tie gets stuck in a machine.

John the Scientist said...

Saqib- ties are a serious danger to the experimental scientist. Silk? Open flames? Baaaad combination.

Organikers who have climbed up the food chain high enough to have other people run their syntheses for them wear ties because the silk is excellent for cleaning fingerprints off of NMR tubes.
