My company announced that Palazzo pants, in basic color and patterns, are allowed from April 1 until October 1. It may seem silly to some but I love Palazzo pants with a nice tunic top. I called my husband I was so happy about the email.  ;D

Last year HR claimed Palazzo pants were not business casual. Their claim was that Palazzo pants resembled pajama pants. 

In other news, Toms and shoes similar to Toms are still now allowed   Blah.  :(

I hate pajama pants in public with a passion... and I don't see it. What they *do* resemble, to me, is the kind of pants you find as part of a martial arts uniform.

I must have a really different picture in my head of palazzo pants. What I use that term for, are very fitted at the top and upper thigh, and then bell or widen out from there. And most often in a dressy woven (not stretchy) fabric. So, not at all like pajamas or a gi.

They are very pretty and I wish I could still wear them without looking like a small office building!

I had to google palazzo pants. Based on the results, I think Diane may have been thinking of something like a kendo uniform

rather than a karate gi. However, I agree that they don't look like any pajama pants I'm familiar with.  :)

Well, the image I got for palazzo pants reminds me a lot of a karate gi:D

After a five-year ban, our company finally re-allowed jeans on Fridays a few weeks ago. I came bopping in last Friday in a long dress in a soft knit fabric and a cardigan, only to be accosted by one of my young co-workers who exclaimed words to the effect of,  "Hey, we can wear jeans on Friday now! You should have worn something comfortable!"

I looked at her skintight jeans, then looked at my dress (which is flattering, but about as "constructed" as a nightgown) and said "which one of us is dressed more comfortably?"

To her credit (she's a smart cookie, even if she is young enough to be my daughter) I could see the light dawn in her eyes almost immediately.

Speaking of chickens, I added 5 new girls, bringing us up to 7. Two red hybrids and three barred Plymouth Rocks I can't tell apart.

Their names: Ruby, Checkers, Checkers, Checkers, and Donald Trump. (One of the hybrids has a very bad toupee and a deep voice.)

There are some absurdly tall irises growing across the street. I got my husband to take a picture of me next to them, showing that the tallest is at my eye level.

The air conditioning was not working this morning at work, and we had no circulation. It came back on!

One of our girls has a Donald Trump toupee as well. 

(Apparently all of ours have names but I don't know what they are right now.  I'm sure I'll find out eventually.  They are gifts from a friend who has over 70 chickens and ducks, each with a name.)

Two things...

The X-Files is planning a come back and I notice ABC is now allowing those with Direct TV accounts to watch shows the next day as opposed the week I was waiting.  (They require an account verification with certain providers before shows can be viewed right away).
