CDHagg, realize that browsing through these threads is like touring an asylum in the 19th century (when asylum tours were popular entertainment). 99% of the comments are raving nutcases...but occasionally, you'll get a stray word of wisdom (which will haunt you and change your life). That said, for WAYWT that figure is 99.99%. For ex, the one that told you to burn everything has been posting in another thread about buying some Goth full-length black coat that 90s Nirvana concert potheads would wear!
If you want to get into the party spirit, wear a Santa Claus hat...and leave everything else as you are. You don't need a blazer. Also, ignore the bit about lurking and not posting.
