Missed opportunity (v 1.2)

Shit. Why did nobody tell me it was 'Dress Loud For The Blind Day'? Was this on the mainstream media? And is it just me, or is this a charity thing that's reasonably fun to participate in, and actually quite an amusing idea? Everyone in work is dressed like a clown, and I have a sweet vision of me blowing them all away by wearing my big black boots, tight black jeans, shocking orange (by which I mean it actually appears to fluoresce. It's the orangest t-shirt I've ever seen, was a freebie from when I worked at the book shop, and is probably radioactive or something) t-shirt with 'Corporate religion' written on it, and black shirt with big white skulls all over it. And maybe my pink linen jacket. Goddamn.

In fact, so inspiring is this vision of loveliness in my head, I will recreate it for you here, in the best way I know how:

Only brighter orange, natch.

Lite-Brite!
All you need is a box, a lightbulb, a grid, some black paper and colored plastic clear pegs! And voila! Fully realized design concept. Everyone WINS! Especially you.

Another oxford slacker?
How peculiar. I now know two Oxfordese chaps, both of whom lead a bohemian existance and also have a fondness for Preacher (Garth Ennis)

That other Oxford chap is of course, Niall Cameron, all-round genius and creator of Dumbass comics(given an accolade, of sorts, by SFX.) I doubt you know him, but it would be quite amazing if you did.

Rather spookily, he has exactly the kind of dress sense as described in your journal posting.

Anyway, it was nice to meet you.

Cheerio.

Damn good idea!
And in the kind of spirit I'm trying to catch for Halloween. As it is, I signed up for a 'WasteWise recycled fashions runway' that my division puts on every year ...

The outfit I've been volunteered for reads:

"Wok on the wild side: An inverted wok hat, decorated with snakes. No Photo yet available. With a japanese haori, kimono, and hakama (samurai pants). The scabbard for the samurai sword is made from a recycled pieces of PVC pipe."

having missed my chance to be the Retread Gladiator in Rubber Armour with Hubcap shield.

In other words, not much different from the ol' RPGSoc. :)

Apart from that, I'll need to devise of something good for the office party ... I'm short of good political/cerebral ideas which I prefer. My last idea is an unfortunate bust: the Dioxin Duo, have a female collegue dress up like Princess Di, and me an Ox.
