How to rock a kilt!
I like dress-up days. I like wearing a tuxedo when I can. I like being in costume for Halloween. Of course y'all know I love to attend the Renaissance festivals dressed in period clothing and I wear green on St. Patrick's Day. I think I started a new tradition yesterday.
St. Patrick's Day 2011 was my first time wearing my kilt with army boots and t-shirt to a non-rennie event. I was a bit nervous as we started walking to the bar. It helped that my friend was also wearing his kilt. But I realized that wearing a kilt in a situation such as this, one must have swagger. I squared my shoulders, puffed out my chest a little and changed the way I walked. I got a 'rowdy brittish soccer fan' attitude; kind of like this Robbie Williams song. (BTW, this song may be NSFW) LOL
We were met at the door by Robert's girlfriend in her kilt and we walked in, heads held high! We also had our rennie drinking horns with us and the fun started as soon as we got our first drinks at the bar. Robert does well with a Scottish accent and I tried my best too as we started getting some attention from people in the club. The first couple of hours we were asked by a lot of people to get their pictures taken with us. Several young females were convinced that we were Irish, I don't think they've traveled the world much, our accents weren't that convincing. LOL
The club had a large patio with a live band playing. After a few drinks and several shots, the 3 of us were out on the dance floor dancing with all kinds of people. I had fun flirting with both men and women. I kept up the swagger and Brittish rocker attitude and people were enjoying themselves. It was well after midnight when we left, Robert had to work today. We stopped at Hooters for a bite to eat and to help us sober up a bit for the drive back to his place. This was a first for me too, being in a Hooters. LOL
I finally dragged myself home and crawled into bed all safe and sound. Thank Buddha I took today off! Now I'm headed to the renaissance faire in Austin for 2 other friends birthday weekend celebrations.
I really kinda liked that FU kind of attitude! YEA!
Was I going "regimental"? It's your guess....
