rest for the wicked (followed by work stuff)

Last night I laid down at about 8:30 to warm up for a few minutes.  Lights were on, roommate was up watching TV.  Next thing I knew I had to pee.  I get up to discover it's 11:30.  Turned off the light and went back to bed.  Woke up on my own 15 minutes before the alarm.  That's about 11 hours of sleep.  Guess I was tired. 

Today is work and Star Wars.  Wear something comfortable to be in for 15 hours, but still work appropriate.  We have a casual day every week.  It improves morale, which improves work ethic.  Everyone is happier and relaxed and happy to be at work.  I don't understand the business casual need.  We communicate to our customers and processors via phone, email, and snail mail.  Why the heck should we dress up 4 out of 5 working days?  It makes no sense to me.  It isn't as though wearing a button down shirt and slacks prevents the sales team from playing nerf football over thier cubicles, standing on thier chairs to talk to one another, or putting with the childs golf set.  Not to mention that on casual day, more of the women at work don't look like prostitutes (not saying anything bad about prostitution, just noting the kind of attire deemed work appropriate).  Not all of the women at work dress like sluts, just most of the ones on my side of the floor.  I wonder how people can get work done when it looks like they can't breathe or sit down.  I want to know what happened to the rest of thier outfits.  Does business casual need to mean women dress in Less than casual days?  I've seen "dresses" that hide nothing, counted the ruffles on the panties under the "dress", sworn I just saw areola in the cleavage.  Don't get me wrong, I can be a pig and have admired some of the show silently to myself.  But I am convinced that this attire does not help the ladies OR gentlemen (I say loosely) get thier work done any more efficiently.  Casual day, they do thier jobs more relaxed, which makes them more pleasant to talk to on the phone.  And then there's me.  I don't use the phone for my job.  I barely have to interact with anyone in the company, much less clients.  So why the heck do I have to dress up to mail, scan, and data enter?  Why do I have to cover my tattoo?  Corporate mindset, I may never come around.
