It's not global warming; it's just my impervious polyester leisure suit!

I actually remember people dressing like that. What were we thinking??
That was fun! Really gives me a fresh perspective on my dad's closet.

No Are any of you also members of The League of Ugly Shirted Gentlemen?
On the Internet, no one can see how poorly you're dressed. ;-)

Boots with a smoking jacket? How gauche!
We'd need a good air conditioning system, so we could have the crackling fire year around...or else locate in the Antarctic!
That's why I wear boots. But I wouldn't mind watching the Dance of the Singed Ankle. ;-)

You've got to watch out for the crackling fireplace - it spits out twinkly little embers that land in your slipper, leading to the dance of the singed ankle...

In my brain, the crackling fireplace was there in my previous description.
Well, in that case, we'll need at least one crackling fireplace. You have to have a crackling fireplace when curled up in a big chair. It's the law.
I anticipate it being something like Isaac Asimov's Union Club mysteries. That, or each of us curled up in a big chair with a glass of brandy and one volume of a dictionary.
So that's who those people were. ;-)

I'm always a little suspicious of any club that would have me as a member. Like the Adult Club--when do you get invited to that? My parents were in it.

Lofty conversations? See dork out.
Haha! And no one said a word about the lofty conversation we'd supposedly have, either.

Twister!Oh. Oh. Duh! Scrabble!

Air hockey? Pffft! Billiards.
Screw dartboards. I want air hockey.
Where's the dartboard?
Don't forget the smoking jackets. :-) Oh, but I'd have to go outside when the cigars are fired up. Blecch.
Oooo! Sounds like we need our own walnut-paneled lounge filled with cigar smoke, lofty conversation, and crystal decanters good gin.
Those noted luminaries of Wordie, both male and female.
