Well, the only time I'm not wearing undies (on head or otherwise) is when I wear a kilt, and no, I'm not scottish, I just happen to love kilts, and feel that it is a seriously underestimated mens gament. And my dream is to be "adopted" by a scottish clan so I can wear one "officialy"
Winters can be cold in Sweden, brrrrr.

I type this wearing only a bathrobe (that's a dressing gown/house coat for those stuck in the UK) - we're one of the largest clans out there. You can wear a plaid one if you like.

that's incredibly generous of you, acidzebra. i hope slite fully appreciates the magnanimity of this gesture. after all, it's not every clan who will accept a newcomer into their bosom, whatever the motivation.

and slite, you are not alone in your non-scots love of kilts (well, actually i'm speculating about the non-scots part), since recently i saw a guy here in paris wearing a khaki colored kilt (imagine what the scots army would wear, if you don't take into consideration the extreme impracticality of doing battle in a skirt). he also had tattoos covering both arms and was quite tall so i doubt he had to defend his sartorial choices very often. i sort of wanted to go up to him and shake his hand and say "maximum respect" but i didn't know him and wasn't sure he would take that in the spirit in which it was intended, so i just continued on my way.

well if we're all giving sartorial status reports, then i'll add that i am fully clothed as well, but not in "outdoor" clothes.

So, not in a meeting then? (You know, you'd have to attend far fewer meetings if you turned up nuded up. Just a thought. Use it wisely.)

Cheers,

Hey, if the forum's going to spy on me, it's gotta expect that I won't always be fully-clothed (I really need some kind of heat-shield for this lap-top though).

I feel guilty for dragging this thread away from topicality. Folks, for those actually involved in this meet-up, consider this simply efforts by those of us at the geographical extremeties of possible attendance to vicariously live here the pleasure of meeting you all.

Cheers,
Marc

marc, this meetup actually has two entire threads dedicated to it already in two languages (there's another one in the french forum, for obvious reasons). plus it's in the lounge. plus it's being organised by ME. i think it can handle a bit of Unutterable Silliness. as much as you can possibly throw at it. go ahead. go wildly off-topic. we can take it. (plus, i'm pretty sure you didn't start it.)

Besides, if it resides in the lounge.... It HAS to go off topic at least once a day, I even think there is an international law that states that.

well i didn't want to bring out the legal jargon, not being a lawyer myself, but i believe that is correct as well.

so actually marc is doing us a favor by making sure we respect the law.

But do we have to respect lawyers?

Other than Ricky, who is one of us, I mean.

no, no ! two separate things.

in fact sometimes you don't even have to respect the law (civil disobediance, anyone ?)

but in the case of an unutterably silly law, why would you not want to ?

No, we are required to despise lawyers, apart from Ricky which is one of or own etc, but this is one of the laws that we do feel is fair and just, and we uphold it out of belief in the legal system as such.

Also becuase it makes the Lounge ever so much fun to read, especially after Marc's been around for a while!
