Getting dressed for the occasion — 24 Comments

  1. That’s a gorilla suit – it’s a monkey suit you’re supposed to be wearing. Herself will have to sew a tail on, otherwise they will put you in the wrong category.

  2. Nice suit, and going incognito is always a good idea. You never know how many paparazzi would be lying in wait, hidden behind the potted plants.

  3. Yes, Cathy, I like my anonim anonym annonimy privacy. I don’t want to become a ‘celebrity’ after all.

  4. That I’d love to see – although I’m pretty sure that’s a gorilla suit.

    Why not cut the arse out of it and you could fool people into thinking its a baboon suit.

    Wouldn’t be so keen on seeing that though.

  5. Never read blogs with smart arsed kids around. I just heard something behind me about …only if you fling poo…

  6. It looks like they’ve made a monkey out of me πŸ™

    B3n – €270 [plus VAT] a hit. A snip to be in my company.

    JC – Jayzus!! Gorillas in Lycra! Yech……

  7. Yup. Trust an African on this – gorillas are apes. Monkeys have tails. But I guarantee you that nobody else at the do will have remembered to don a tail, either, so you’re in the clear. Besides, you will be a lot warmer than those who didn’t know the secret code and pitch up wearing only a black tie…

    Hang on – perhaps that’s what you’re supposed to do with the tie: wear it as a tail for your monkey suit!

    It’s all just fallen into place.

  8. Grandad,

    On reflection, it would be a breach of etiquette to wear a tail with the gorilla suit. Tails are for morning dress and black tie is evening dress. It would be like passing the port decanter the wrong way around the table, the embarrassment would be such that you would have to go outside and shoot yourself.

  9. Thanks Ian. Once again, you’ve put my mind at rest. I’m glad I’m doing the right thing.

    K8 – Don’t forget… You’re coming with me. what are you dressing as?

  10. I’m sure you could find someplace for the pipe and tobacco.

    Also, you should wear a pink bough in your gorilla hair, so as to not get into trouble with the other gorilla males over mating territory and such nonsense.

  11. Holy crap are you paying that for ticket or are you a special guest? like the suit.

  12. Grandad

    Tomorrow I hope that …

    * It’s warm outside
    * You’re warm inside
    * Your Remington will read your mail properly
    * Your back is better
    * Your clients are not hassling you
    * Your work is up to date
    * Your readers are behaving themselves
    * You’re in tip top form
    * Your suit doesn’t itch
    * You ‘enjoy’ the night
    * And you bring home at least one fecking Spider!

    Have fun πŸ˜›

  13. You’ll truly floor ’em when you get there!

    And possibly get shot as well.

    To what address do I send the flowers and sympathy card then?

  14. Dalif – If I wore a pink bow in my hair I’d risk unwanted intentions by other gorillas. Not a nice thought..

    Flirty – I’m the Interval Act.

    Steph – Thank you. Though the Spiders aren’t on until next week. Tonight is the NetVisionary awards. I’ve been barred from there.

    Kirk – Just send ’em to Granny at GrannyLostThePlot. The address is on my sidebar.

  15. Since, as of this morning (my time) you seem to be alive and kicking (unless you have a bunch of already written posts set up in WLW to publish at future times over a period of the next few days just to yank your reader’s chains which I wouldn’t doubt whatsoever since you seem to be that kind of guy and if so, how the hell do you “auto-reply to comments then?), I canceled the order for flowers and the sympathy card.

    Too bad really…they were real nice. Don’t let it get about and about but I’m actually glad your still around.

    Hmmm, I better get another cup of coffee…I don’t sound like myself.

  16. Kirk – What are you waffling about? Today is today, whichever side of the Pond you’re on. Why should I be dead yet? The gorilla thing doesn’t happen until next Thursday. Tonight, I shall remain quietly at home getting smashed, or stoned [whichever is easier].
    I intend to be around tomorrow, unless of course Herself and I decide to have one of our little ‘disagreements’.

  17. Ah Jeeez, Told ya’ I needed another cup of coffee. I totally missed the time of the event even though I read the posts more than once. I really need to talk to my doc about that medication. I’ll leave the flowers and sympathy card on standby then.

    And I suggest doing both at once. It pays to multi task at times.

    Addendum: Ho-ho! Got that WP-Ajax-Edit-Comments plugin loaded up ay? A fine thing to be doing for your loyal readership. An extra toke for you sir.

  18. It’s something a little stronger than coffee you need, Kirk. Librium? Vallium? Prozak?

    Addendum: πŸ™‚ Thanks for the plugin! I raided your plugin page. As if I didn’t have enough already……!
