No shirt, no shoes, no architecture.

As I was crawling around the floor on my knees at the flat files today, I once again became frustrated with the fact that I am expected to wear corporate dress despite the fact that I don’t have exposure to clients; and I may, at any time, be expected to cart around huge rolls of drawings- which causes me to become really sweaty, get funky blueline residue all over myself, and possibly smell like stinky old crusty sepia prints for the rest of the day. Additionally, it is uncomfortable to sit at a desk drawing all day when wearing the Uniform of The Man (of course, I should probably contribute that complaint to the ever-increasing size of my fat gut).

Those are also a few of the reasons why I have refused to let pantyhose anywhere near my body since 2001. I’d be much more productive in pajamas, I’m sure of it.

At least I don’t have to wear ties.

I used to work as a computer programmer myself, and I always wondered why we had to dress up to crunch out code. I so badly wanted to wear jeans and a t-shirt to work every day.

Hi there!

I link to blogs that contain a significant reference to work-related stuff and would like to put you on my blogroll.

I'm also researching work-related blogs and would appreciate you filling in a quick questionnaire for me.
