Did you know it’s like national blog posting month or something?
I’m not sure if this is an actual thing or just something made up by the internet. Alas, I did my own daily blogging challenge last month because I’m such a goddamn trailblazer.
It’s November 3!
I decided to preemptively stop wearing pants on the off chance you guys liked the idea of a no-pants challenge. This challenge is more suited to my lifestyle than a daily blogging challenge because it allows me to reward myself for doing nothing!
On Saturday I wore running tights and then changed into cotton drawstring pajamas, Sunday I wore leggings, and today I am wearing yoga pants.
Obviously these could all be considered pants in a very broad sense, but I’ve come up with a few helpful guidelines.
Nothing with pockets. Some of my sweatpants have pockets, but you get the idea. If the pockets fancy up the garment, then it could be considered pants and that’s what we don’t want.
Nothing with less than 50% Spandex or cotton (or similar stretchy/casual material). Obviously nothing with denim, corduroy, linen, polyester, etc. I don’t own any silk or satin so we don’t even have to worry about that.
Jeggings don’t count as pants but stretchy jeans might. I have a pair from Target that are borderline. They’re branded as “denim leggings” but they have real pockets. Yet, they are 73% cotton/spandex and only 27% polyester. I’ll decide later because MY RULES.
ALL 12 OF YOU READERS are welcome to join me in this exciting endeavor! I’d love for somebody with a real job (OR A DUDE!) to take this on because I’m really not getting away with anything except looking like a slob in front of my kids and the other moms at Target.
Oh, and as far as authenticity, you’re just going to have to trust me because there’s no way I’m taking daily selfies of my not-pants. Maybe a few selfies though.
Let’s move on.
Did you guys have a fun Halloween?
It was butt cold here but we managed to hit about 10 houses before Kenzie got fed up. Naturally we were about half a block down the street when that happened and she insisted on being carried all the way home. She had a nice warm bath and a few mini Hershey’s before we put her to bed and had some fun of our own.
Beer, candy, and the original Day of the Dead, which is a (sort of terrible) classic George Romero zombie film. (When you say FILM that makes it classier than just a movie, get it?) I hear there’s a remake in the works because what old movie DOESN’T have a remake in the works? Hollywood: done coming up with original shit since 1987.
My goal for next Halloween is to go to a real grownup Halloween party. I’m hoping to have a good babysitting situation figured out by then.
What did you do for Halloween? What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without wearing pants?
