Many things this time

Quote from work:
DR, to a gutter-brained coworker after she didn’t get a joke I told: “With you it’s not [a matter of] being below your radar… it’s above.”

Ok, now for the guts of this: Work yesterday and today was slow. REEEEEEEEEEELY slow. My boss has been out for the whole week while she moved. During this time (4 days since we were off Monday) has not been quick. It just plain dragged along at a snails pace. I have had very little work (save for the cabinet I build, see post below), and today was the worst. It’s kinda funny: I whine when I have too much to do, but go nuts when I don’t have a damm thing to do. Most of my day was taken up putting together a mailing which seems to not to want to go anywhere. Parts of it from higher ups have not come in, and by 1 pm it was pissing me off. Not one, but _3_ things that could have come my way didn’t. By 4 pm I had already taken more smoke breaks than the law could allow.

Ok… enough of the negative, or, rather, a bit more of it. This evening I decided to hit Tilly’s (Hip clothing shop if you don’t happen to have any near you.) Slight problem and it had to do with my clothes I brought to wear after work. I didn’t notice this when I got them, but the legs of this are, and I mean this measurement literally, 6 inches TOO LONG! Oiy! So what am I supposed to do? I searched all over for a shop that sold safety pins or such, with no luck. Then an idea hit me. Men can tell you that starched shirts they sell in places that are folded up are held in their state with pins. Good pins, to be exact, for quick alterations. So I strut up to the men’s department of Sears, full in intent in getting some of these pins. And just my luck, they had a whole mess of those neatly folded/molded-into-shape shirts laid out in a large grouping. Now, I had a lot of shirts, so too speak, to choose from. The first ones, however, gave me a noble cause to work with in my thieving endeavor: God awful colored shirts. Tacky pink, ugly lavender, puke peach. I felt like I was kind of doing a (dis)service in taking one pin from twelve different ugly shirts. I head to the bathroom and work my magic. I made a mental note here to hem all the jeans I recently got to fix this problem.

On a different note, I did get a nice lounge shirt (hopefully pictured below… if not, I’ll link to it).

That is all…

*Update* After unsucessful attempts to get this file to show, I am giving up. (Note to TCC: Geoshitties does not allow offsite image linking, contrary to your info. It's a TOS violation, actually.) So, here's an .html addy with the pic.
