It's really easy to wake up in the morning, roll over and start working from bed, transition to the couch and never once make a pit stop to put on a bra, brush your teeth or take a shower. And the constant snacking and sedentary lifestyle can make wearing pants, well, uncomfortable, so I could totally relate to the scene of Homer shopping for some work clothes, and picking out a muumuu.
