"Methinks it's time to go naked native. It's a shower cap and singlet for me."

Karen's notes: Okay, this is a singlet. I have no idea how the combo of shower cap and something like this amounts to "naked native," but I am am enormously amused imagining Adam in such an ensemble.

Too bad our shirt shop doesn't carry singlets!

On an entirely different note, we were listening to Tom Waits' "What's He Building in There" yesterday, and Adam's 6-year-old daughter decided that it sounded just like Adam sleep talking. I can't quite say I'm in agreement (accent?!), but I guess it does speak to the utter creepiness of Adam's midnight musings.

  1. Sorry, Adam! Not naked! Not native! I know what both are, and that's neither!

    How in the Hell do you get into that thing? One more good reason for going commando!

  3. Isn't a singlet more like a tank top (than a one-piece)?

  4. Not in Britain. Here in the US it's an undershirt, but to Brits its what Karen posted.

  5. OH, and it dips low in back, so you can step in and then stick arms thru sleeves. Originated as wrestling wear.

  6. Gareth just came out with a new one today... all of a sudden and very loudly he yelled "Nipple Gnomes". Whether this has something to do with the cat lying in front of him and paddling his chest I don't know....

    Love this one though Adam!

  7. hey a singlet is just a sleaveless tshirt, or the white sleaveless things you wear under shirts. at least to australians.

  8. Zazzle carries singlets. It's free to set up an account there too, no later fees or charges and you can choose your royalty %. You could perhaps start a store there as well. www.zazzle.com

  9. I adore Zazzle! Get all my Dr Who stuff there ;)

    (Of course, living in a itty bitty redneck town in the southwest - Texas to be precise - I get very odd looks when I saunter around in my "Time Lord Victorious" tee.... sigh. No culture at all.)

  10. Of course it makes sense that you guys like Tom Waits. His surreal lyrics go perfectly with Adam's sleep talkin mutterings :)

    Going naked in the native homeland or world cup for that matter of mind, Methinks, with a shower cap! in a partial identity And a wrestlin'into a singlet! one piecer form-tube; is a streaker of genius to slightly carry that message across to the other sideliner if one dares, albeit, ala STM struttin' stuff of dreams?

    Is it? I'll have to take your word for it. As a native English person, I've never seen one of those before. Thank the lord for small mercies eh?

  16. Okay, it say something about me when I hear singlet and think "the state of perfectly pared electrons and a shower cap? *ROFL*"

    Thanks for the explanation as I would have just called that a onesy...like what my baby wears.

  17. Even here in the US, I've always known singlets as "adult onesies," but perhaps that's because my boys wrestled. Although the ones that wrestlers wear have a little more leg to them so that nothing falls out! I even thought that the shower cap could symbolize the wrestling headgear.

  18. I don't usually comment; but I looooove that song. And that's all I wanted to say :) haha

  19. Here in the US a singlet is a singlet as well. An undershirt doesn't have attached man panties.

  20. so a singlet is pretty much a onesie for a grown-up man? yes... creepy image...

  21. If we want to get reallllly technical (wicked grin) a singlet originally was an undershirt - a 'vest' made of a single layer of fabric, over which the 'doublet (made of TWO layers of fabris) went.

    If you google singlet, you do get 'onsies' - mostly wrestling gear. I'm from the southern states, however, and they do refer to a undershirt as a singlet, also sometimes called a 'wifebeater' :)

  22. Ok Adam I want a picture posted of you in a singlet and shower cap, it's time you acted out some of these dreams!

  23. Wicked good idea, Anon at 23:50! What do you think, Adam? :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yes, that's definitely a onesie. An adult onesie...I didn't know there were such things....well, in pajama form, okay, maybe...but in underwear form??? Hilarious!!!

  25. Grace's comments reminded me of something. I'm surprised there has been no Doctor Who mentions from Adam up to this point. Most curious.

  28. Ahh...Tom Waits! I'm still wondering what that guy is building. Singlet: male leotard, yes? Perhaps the guy is building something in his garage wearing a singlet.

  29. i saw someone else already wrote something similar, but a singlet is actually just kiwi (new zealand) slang (maybe aussie too?) for something like a 'wife beater' (canada) or 'tank top' or any variation of a sleeveless undershirt good for working in :)

    not as amusing i'm afraid haha

  30. I am, even as I write this, listening to "What's He Building in There". There is definitely a similarity between Tom Waits and STM there. Different accents aside, the intonations and cadences are kinda, well, similar.
