Formal Fridays

My first week at work is going well. Yesterday we had a staff lunch, where everyone took turns grilling me in "this or that" fashion. For example, the Americas or Africa? (Neither, the South Pacific.) Every day I get to talk about far away fantasy places like Tanzania, Ethiopia and Guyana in realistic terms. And best of all? Because the staff dress in jeans and casual clothes on a regular basis, they've instated an optional Formal Friday.

I haven't quite figured out how writing is going to fit into the equation, but I'm confident that this was the right path to take, at least for now. (Here's to the death of Casual Fridays.)

Nice paint job. Pointless, though. Anyone want to wager a bet on how long this is going to last for?

  1. Sometimes I think having formal fridays at our office would be fun. But the last time I suggested it to somebody they reminded me that I work in games and most of the staff probably don't even own any formal clothes.
