I've been celebrating xmas all over town. Photographic evidence:
Actually, here are some photos for real:
K-Mack's Office Party '04
Here you will get to see me wear my one and only suit, which cost me $540 when I bought it, and has since been worn nine times, bringing the price down to a not-yet reasonable $60 per use.
Robbin + Laura's Rockin' Christmas Party '04
Here you won't see the photographic evidence of dan being a drunk idiot, just everyone else. Not that I wasn't drunk. I just didn't get photographed while being so. Being in possession of the camera for most of the evening helped dodge the bullet on that one.

Is it wrong to be turned on by that photograph? Maybe I just have something for granny panties and industrial bras.

Or is it the pearl necklace and high heels?

Where was K*Mack's office party? IMS? That is the only place I could think of. Nice looking venue! Also nice suit!! I have yet to be invited to any "office parties" - the airline only does a "family day" for the holidays where Santa visits. However, private parties at friends houses are much better.

I see that photo and one image immediately comes to mind. Cosmo Kramer saying 'cat fight'.
Question.... Is that Esera Tuaolo?
Nice office party. Our office party is today from 3:00 - 3:30. I'm just giddy with anticipation of a whole half hour of celebration. I guess this is what I get for working for the Gestapo.

Popular guy! And nice suit...like the shirt & tie combo too. The bearded guy in pvt party pictures is fun. I have my company holiday party next month...apparently it's no holds barred when it comes to drinking, which is good, because usually those things are so uptight. "Oh, you're having another drink??" Ugh.

Kiddo, I feel your pain. I worked for a company for 5 years, and Christmas party = 2 drink tickets. Not cool. Anyway, I devised a plan during the year to befriend the alcohol-abstinent Christians in the office who gladly turned over their drink tickets to me since I was (and am) such a "sweet boy".
(insert maniacal laugh here)
Man-those were the days...me trying to score free drinks at a straight function. Good times.

Yes that is the IMS. Yes that is Esera. And yes it is the high-heel/pearl-necklace combo that turns you on. Man you guys are good.

Quick question: In the second set of pics, do you guys suddenly start doing Karaoke? eeeeek.

It appears as though you are one of them. By 'them' I mean guys who feel the need to button up all of the buttons on their jacket.
Q: How do you tell which one of the "suits" isn't really a "suit"?
A: The one who has his jacket buttoned.
"You can tell more from the mask than the face" -Oscar Wilde
Is that really a picture of you with your jacket buttoned while seated? Here's a Christmas gift idea: Finishing School.

On a three button suit, the top two should be buttoned. The bottom one remains unbuttoned. That is the rule. Everyone knows that.
I did, however, sit at the table with my suit coat buttoned at times. My nervous habbit was to ceaselessly button and unbutton the suit all evening. Keep in mind, this was only the ninth time I've ever worn one. And I was drunk.

It appears that Mr/Ms Anonymous 9:23 is one of them. By them, I mean someone who probably grew up with nothing and being overlooked by funny, well-liked people such as Dan (because you're so unoriginal and boring that you do things like post condescending *anonymous* comments)...Now, *maybe* you have some money and have studied how you're supposed to look/dress around the other suits and think that you're very sophisticated, but you're still jealous of people who have a personality and fun. You feel the need to make yourself feel superior somehow. It's called nouveau riche...and, again - boring. Go back to Edina and study your MACY'S insert for clothing tips. (Sorry everyone else - I can't stand people like that...)

Anonymous --You seem to fancy yourself quite the wit; unfortunately, you're only half right.
If you're going to be petty, at least do it properly. I assume the Oscar Wilde quote you are fumbling for is: "Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." -- from The Critic as Artist.
That "quote" you posted does not seem to exist anywhere on the planet outside of this web page. Nor does it make the least bit of sense. No doubt you had the intent of giving your baseless opinions the patina of authority by inexpertly mushing some words together and affixing a famous name at the end. You have failed miserably. Your ham-fisted chicanery merely exposes you as the buffoon you are. A bit of advice, my semi-literate chum: If you want to convince the credulous that you are intelligent, do not try to bolster your gormless rants by pawing at the keyboard and attributing the results to people who are much smarter than you.
You have made it clear that you know nothing about the conventions of men's fashion and even less about literature. Furthermore, you have slandered a literary genius by attempting to attribute your inane blathering to his good name. And you have been so uncouth as to insult (however poorly) the creator of this fine blog without provocation.
You are an ass. In a just world, you would be rousted from your creepy dwelling by an enraged public and strung up by your underdeveloped testicles.

Touche. Thank you for correctly pointing out that it was actuallty "a mask tells us more than a face". Since you seem to be quite literate, I'm sure you'll remember that, "It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances".
Anyway, I am just trying to rid the planet of men who feel the need to button all of their buttons, especially when sitting down. It just doesn't look right and for some reason it bothers me much the same way that people with internet monikers claim that people who post "anonymously" are any more anonymous than those using monikers.
Hey, at least anyone who read this thread will remember to button their three-button jackets as Dan did (sorry for assuming that you were an all-buttoner), and will relax and unbutton all of them when they are seated.

I wouldn't know an Oscar Wilde quote if it bit me in the ass, but either way, I look kick-ass in a suit.

That you do, Daniel. That you do. So, whatcha doin' later?
By hot babe, at 10:20 AM
