  • Ohhhh.

    *pondering*

  • Pineapples are extremely high in citric acid.

    October 21, 2008

  • What was harsh, dontcry? That I like pineapple?

    *feeling sleek in my totally faux Hawaiian shirt*

  • Huh! Well, I had an ancestor on the Mayflower that wore the first Hawaiian shirt(s). So there! Unfortunately, he didn't survive the trip...I'm told. Good thing he wasn't my only ancestor. Or, if he was, I'm just a Wordie fig newton (always a possibility--see solipsism or solecism).

  • Sorry, pleth, that's a Dry Tortugan shirt.

    October 19, 2008

  • I had a black and white one when I was kid, dc.

    October 19, 2008

  • That's all I'm saying. *wonders if they make an all black one...*

    October 19, 2008

  • You're right dontcry. I came home 2 kilograms heavier and that was just from looking at them.

    October 18, 2008

  • Reesetee - wow... that was harsh.

    October 18, 2008

  • Maybe we could call them, "Hawaiian Flowers & Colors (or Colours) & Patterns That May Make You Look Larger Than You Really Are And Real Hawaiians Would Never Be Caught Dead In Them Shirts" ?

    October 18, 2008

  • I once attended a luau in Alaska. It was held by authentic Samoans; they even wore skirts. But not many of those in attendance seemed to have Hawaiian shirts.

    Maybe we should call them something else, given that Hawaiians apparently hate brightly colored garments with amusing pictoral patterns.

    How about Old Retired Geezer shirts, or Midwesterners in a Festive Mood shirts, or even Florida Toll Booth Worker shirts?

    October 18, 2008

  • Did you think any of the wait-staff looked, you know, a little heavier in their Hawaiian shirts? I'm convinced that those shirts add pounds to the wearer. Kind of like video. And I think I know why. It's the pattern...

    October 18, 2008

  • You know, I went out to dinner last night and in the restaurant, which was not themed at all, the entire staff were wearing Hawaiian shirts.

    Wordie is making things appear in my life. Should I be worried?

    October 18, 2008

  • ouch

    October 18, 2008

  • I like pineapple. Still.

    October 18, 2008

  • I have a bowler hat.

    October 18, 2008

  • i must admit though that hawaiian shirts are a good addition to a wardrobe.

    October 18, 2008

  • I love pizza. And pasta. (But I don't play the mandolin.)

    October 18, 2008

  • maybe, but hawaiian shirts are a creation of tourism, sold as souveneirs. no true regard for the culture at all.

    October 18, 2008

  • smrtrthnu, don't be silly. Next thing you'll be telling me Parisians don't put French dressing on their salads or send French letters. Or that Alaskans aren't making baked Alaska all the time.

    October 18, 2008

  • Well... it's a more parsimonious option...

    October 17, 2008

  • *sigh* I would hate to think it's The Pattern. I really would.

    Dontcry, this Hawaiian shirt makes you look flowery and festive. But does my fat ass make my ass look fat?

    October 17, 2008

  • Uh oh. *looks at watch*

    The Pattern?

    October 17, 2008

  • maybe

    October 17, 2008

  • Does this Hawaiian shirt make me look fat...?

    October 17, 2008

  • That may well be, smrtrthnu, but I don't give a rat's ass. I wear them because of my father, not to conform to true Hawaiian style. :-)

    Bilby: Yes, that book comes in a variety of shirts--or at least it used to. You could buy several copies and own your own shirt-book wardrobe.

    October 17, 2008

  • i used to live in hawaii, and hawaiian shirts are purely a stereotype of true hawaiian style.

    October 17, 2008

  • "I have book on Hawaiian Shirts, although mine is bound with a different shirt." Beautiful, beautiful. My week has just climaxed.

    October 17, 2008

  • Not anymore! But they definitely belong in Dad School. :-)

    October 17, 2008

  • Can't believe they were left out of Dad School. Or is it the plural?

    Edit: nope - Hawaiian shirt is a ghostie.

    October 17, 2008

  • Ha! I think I gave that same book to my dad--the original Hawaiian Shirt Guy--as a Father's Day gift many years ago. I wonder whether he still has it.

    October 17, 2008

  • Darn, just missed it for my former ghosts list. I have book on Hawaiian Shirts, although mine is bound with a different shirt.

    October 17, 2008

  • Done!

    October 17, 2008

  • Me? Why, I've never adopted a page before . . . that I'm aware of.

    Well, okay. In the interest of all the orphaned Hawaiian shirts out there--what the hey. :-) Unghost it!

    October 17, 2008

  • Reesetee, clearly you must be the one to adopt this page.

    October 16, 2008

  • Sorry about the caps down there. Hawaiian shirts should come with a volume control.

    October 16, 2008

  • I 'spect he has. After all, that's how you show that you've been to Hickalulu!

    October 16, 2008

  • Ever been to Hawaii?

    October 16, 2008

  • What? That's crazy talk. I have a whole wardrobe of them.

    October 16, 2008

  • NO WORDIES HAVE HAWAIIAN SHIRTS?!
