What up, friends- it’s been a while. Just thought I’d check in to let you know that I haven’t gone all Natalee Holloway on your asses- work has just been seriously off the chain lately. And not in the cool, crunked-out music video with superfly bitches and lowriders with hydraulics kinda way that black people say it…. no, it’s more of the “running around like that intern in the Devil Wears Prada so my ass doesn’t get fired” sort of way. Actually, have you ever seen The Firm? Yeah, it’s nothing like that.
With working a lot of 14+ hour days lately, and trying to squeeze in the occasional run so my ass doesn’t grow [much] wider than the circumference of my oversized desk chair, I’ve had pretty much zero time to get my blog on. Actually, that’s not entirely true. I probably could have used that time I spent drinking two post-work glasses of wine and then passing out on the couch while watching Fashion Star and eating half a jar of dill pickles to blog instead…. but then I wouldn’t be the proud new owner of this convertible zip mini skirt. (You can wear it TWO WAYS!).
It’s a Catch 23 situation, really.
Anyway, I ask that you please bear with me during this difficult time.. and maybe even send a couple of prayers my way. (I’d suggest directing those bad boys to the Patron Saint of “please let there be something edible on the office take-out menu tonight”, for one).
And please make sure you check back again soon because I’ve got plenty of stellar posts coming your way. Highlights include how someone was actually nice to me in Toronto recently, my newest Lonely Habit (spoiler alert: it involves creeping on Craigslist… actually, it pretty much is creeping on craigslist), and lots of other stories about weird shit I’ve been up to lately… like visiting farms by myself, and making easter baskets for my non-existent children. Why hasn’t TLC called me yet?? My life would clearly make for ratings gold.
Question of the Day: How do you handle work stress?
*Bonus points if your answer includes alcohol and/or chocolate.. or dill pickles, apparently.
