Watch out for those Walmart flip flops Jim! May be time to pull a little wool over my eyes, I wonder if the berets have special properties as do the aluminum shields. You think there's one big enough for my head? Would "dressy church" be like what is worn at the alter?

Oh My - I'm in.....

Lets see Canada day.... Red and White...


Well I am white and if I buck the system and just go in the buff I may blush so does that count as a shade of RED...and If I bid on that Berret - and win then I will be set for the Independence day as well - so what more does a girl need in the way of a "dress" code........

There's nothing more patriotic on Canada Day than a WASP with a sun burn!

From the "up yours" generation...

This generation is one of the few that has taken the 'up yours' method of expression to new heights in self presentation, even to the point of creating rules to flout where they don't exist to start with.

interesting paranoia.
I know this is a couple days old but I want to respond to it, as one of the "up yours" generation.

First: It has nothing to do with the amount of respect I have for the club. It has EVERYTHING to do with how I want to spend my vacations: generally, I prefer to relax on vacations. Dressing up is (generally) not relaxing, at least for me. And I wear a button down shirt and dress slacks to work every day, no tie (I work for the government); I don't want to dress that way on vacation and have to worry about getting my clothes dirty or even damaged (dressy clothes are harder to clean and cost more). Sure, if I'm going to a nice restaurant or something, then yeah, I'll put something nicer on, but I'll put jeans/shorts and t-shirts back on ASAP.

However, I wonder if the problem isn't as much a dress code or whatever but the fact that we're having a meeting or ceremony in the first place. Retirees use the term "fixed income" - well, I'm working, so I've got "fixed vacation." That is, I have a limited amount of vacation time I can use each year, so I like to make the most of it. I mentioned I work for the government, so you can bet I spend a lot of time in meetings, workshops, lockups, Tiger Teams, premeetings, facilitated sessions, and probably a few others I've managed to block from my mind. Having them during my vacation just isn't what I want to do.

Second: The "up yours" generation? Please.

I would have to agree with Skater. Myself, Im young, and Im not saying I know everything, but I have to agree that I dont want to spend my vacation in a dress! I like to have my jeans and a sweatshirt on, and enjoy myself, cant do that as much in heals.

I think as for the "Up Yours" generation, that I think is personally rude! I work with older people all day, and my work is something that makes me feel good. If you plan on judging, maybe older people should look at more their age, they arnt always the easiest to deal with. However, Im not going to say something that us rude back, because two wrongs dont make a right, I did learn that when I was a child, guess my parents didnt do so bad after all.

"up yours generation"

Folks, Having been on the opposite side of many discussions with Leipper...

I do not take his phrase as an insult or rudity but as a way to convey his perceptions. Much like I used "Hippies and Summer of love." to convey mine.

Don't let our use of such terms offend you please. We were trying to convey thoughts in a medium wherein voice inflection and facial expression cannot be used.

That's the quote of the day!

Way to devise an analogy regarding the issue that both generations can identify with.

I would have to disagree with you. I think it is rude, calling someone a Hippie, and then calling someone a kid of the "Up Yours" generation, I think is diffrent. I dont see anything by being called a Hippie, but being called apart of the Up yours generation, I think its rude. So many people treat is younger people like we are dirt, and that we are not deserving of being members of the WBCCI, but I dont let it get me down, because I want to have fun!

as a card carrying tree hugging hippy I am not offended by being called anything. My attitude is "up yours" to anyone that thinks they have room to judge me. With so many people, from so many different points of view, there is bound to be differences in opinions, differences in values, differences in direction. The sooner we all stop thinking the other guy is wrong, the sooner we all can be right. If some of the club members want to go formal, so what? what does it matter? Does it really cause a problem? If some of the members want to wear birkenstocks and cut offs, so what? Has it effected anything? Get over it!!!

ATTENTION! ATTENTION!! WEAR WHAT YOU WANT.... NO ONE CARES. IF THEY DO, SO WHAT?
