Last week, I reported how writers, stay-at-home parents and online marketing geeks had selected careers as hermits:

Thousands of work-from-home hermits responded, confessing that they were draining their nightdress while comprehension my column. Luckily very few sent me photos. Here are some of the questions they asked:

Q: Is it conventional to wear nightdress at high noon if No one sees me, or am I committing a create faux-pas.

A: It is entirely adequate to wear nightie at high noon. You can even wear them at low noon. In fact, you can wear them all day long. The only omission is in England you must not wear night clothes at tea time. Nightie and tea don't mix. The amalgamation can be lethal. (See the November 2002 report: "Spontaneous burning among British work-at-home hermits. ")

Q: How be supposed to I carry "casual Fridays" in my workplace?

A: I have replaced casual Fridays with "formal Thursdays". Every Thursday, I take my daughter to the play center, forcing me to shower, shave and don conventional wear. Don't go overboard, though. My three-piece suit includes jeans, t-shirt and shoes.

Q: But what if I never go out?

A: Then stick to casual Fridays. Why not make Friday the day you wash your pajamas? All Insignificant person will see is the back of your chair, anyway.

Q: What if FedEx Guy comes to the door?

A: Tell FedEx Guy it's casual Friday, and ask him if he certainly wants to see how work-from-home hermits celebrate casual Fridays.

Q: If I work from home, do I still need a purse?

A: Of course. Lacking a purse, what would you carry to the bathroom? Make sure your purse matches your pajamas, though. You would not want Minion to catch you with a poorly corresponding wardrobe. Personally, I don't have a purse, but that's just a guy thing.

Q: What about captivating out the garbage?

A: When the odor starts to repel the postman, you might need to take out the nonsense (just in case there is a rare check in the mail). Wear your night clothes to the curb, but I advise replacing your slippers with shoes. Snowshoes are suggested in Edmonton. . . except in July and August. Don't walk to the curb if you live on a houseboat.

Q: I feel so alone. Is that normal?

A: Get over it. You are part of a glorious cost-effective movement, where ancestors about the world desire to decline old-fashioned common norms and blockade themselves in their homes to make $53,976 in the first week of their new businesses. How could you feel lonely with so much money?

Q: Wow. I made only $3 in my first week. I bet my companion $3 that I could stay in my home bureau for three arranged days not including advent out. I won the bet, but I was compulsory to shower.

A: That's not a question.

Q: OK, what if I make only $3 a week?

A: You might have to share your nightgown with Nobody. . . until you can find the money for a back pair.

Q: Is this actually a increasing trend?

A: Yes. The Worldwide Institute of Collective Isolation information that by 2055, 95% of associates will be in commission a home based business. The Countrywide Company for Studying You (NOSY) hearsay that by 2055, 95% of colonize will be allocation their nightgown with Nobody. . . until they can find the money for a back pair.

Q: Wow. That's a lot of pajamas. What does this mean for the future.

A: It means the pajama activity will befit a major efficient force.

Q: Do you know any good pajama-based mutual funds I could invest in to take help of this trend?

A: No, but how rich can you get investing $3 a week, anyway?

That's it, the whole lot you hunted to know about alter decorum for the work-from-home hermit. One more thing: if you afford advice to this critique on a casual Friday, desire turn off your web cam.
