Valerie, "Jemaine and Brett would be Proud", Brooklyn, NY

Who: Valerie
What: cotton/poly blend
When: 2007?
Where: Mohonk, NY
Why: You know that episode of Flight of the Concords, during the Business Time song, when he talks about that "ugly old shirt with a stain on it that you got from your old work that one time . . . Team Building Excersise '99"? Well, that's this shirt. I got it on a work retreat event, where we went to Mohonk Mountain House, a resort in the Hudson Valley. It's astoundingly beautiful, this Dirty Dancing-type guest house set into a gorge in the Hudson Valley. It's quiet, and beautiful, and totally amazing. Our boss takes his family there for skiing trips, which, frankly, I found difficult to stomach. Anyway, we all picked out a shirt, and it's like when you're at Disneyland, and suddenly the idea of not having a pink Minnie Mouse sweatshirt seems absurd, and yes, I will wear this ALL THE TIME. I just get caught up. Luckily, I didn't pay. And luckily, it's soft. So I wear it it bed.
And yeah, I put on those jeans expressly to take this photo. Then I put my pajamas back on.

I actually have a friend who used to work there. She has some amusing and weird stories - though none feature her carrying a watermelon, sadly.
