Go Texan Day 2012

Here’s my ‘getup’ for this year’s Go Texan Day 2012. Improved the outfit a bit with a bolo tie and some cowboy boots. Maybe next year, I’ll be able to get some woollies. Working on trying to get some of the photos a co-worker took of a group of us. There were five people, including myself, that dressed up and participated in the photo. The photo was a time lapse, so we jumped in the air as a group and it looks pretty good.

Just need to figure out how to make a looping-gif with the photos.

Go Texan Day!

And here it is:

Arguably, tomorrow is one of the fun-est days in Houston all year. It’s the one day, in the whole year, when it’s acceptable to dress up like a cowboy and go to work. No teasing. No taunting. It’s completely normal, one day a year, it’s Go Texan Day! (Now all they need is GO Star Wars Day, or Pajama Day.)

Here’s a picture of me in front of the Texas flag from last year’s Go Texan Day:

Go Texan Day sort of sneaked up on me this year, so I’ll be wearing the same thing again. Still no cowboy boats, can’t get behind spending several hundred dollars on uncomfortable boots I’ll year once a year.
