In the past, there has always been this funny rule about representing Microsoft at TechEd that said “no open toe shoes”. Yesterday we finally got the email about our attire and there was nothing about open toe shoes. However, I was not happy to see “khaki or black pants/skirt” only. (And they were clear to note “where appropriate” next to “skirt” heh.) But the color restriction (which I should have expected) was a bummer because I have lost some weight and my khaki and black pants are awfully baggy and my Patagucci khaki’s from my pre-.NET days when I had loads of time to exercise are still a little snug and now a little out of fashion (“Expecting a FLOOD, Julie?”). I do have to go to “the big city” (that’s Burlington VT, pop. 40,000) on Friday, so perhaps I’ll go buy some new pants. But at least I get to wear my Tevas.
