Yes, I know I was going to tell you about the stripper who, instead of just doing the same old, same old, had some excellent vision and made it big in an unexpected way.
But in the tradition of Shameless Ramblings From Your Truly- I have some disconnected thoughts I'd simply like to enumerate in no particular order. (I very much enjoy reading Celeste's thoughts.)
My blow dryer sparked three times when I was blowing Eliot (Mr. Yorkshire Terrier Extraordinaire) dry. Therefore, I threw it away.
An employee quit. People have every right to do as they please- BUT it would have been nice if he had decided before we trained him and before we booked him for several events- that "it was not for me".
I had a nice lunch at Le Madelyn today but ordered only a sad looking spinach quiche and a cup of fruit with that yummy fattening sauce and an Orange-ina, because you can only get those from up North and I don't live there anymore.
I wanted the rest of Tony's lunch he didn't finish, but I didn't ask.
My dress I got on sale last week is too big. I don't want to mess with getting it altered. And it doesn't look good with the printed argyle tights I got for it either. In fact, it looks stupid.
I have to buy another couch because my Boxer is... too awful to talk about. I only plan for it to last a year. I love my Boxer more than I love my "stuff", but I am not getting another Boxer.
I ran out of makeup. I tried something different to see if I'd like it. Nope. I'm still out of makeup.
Got a cool new velveteen warm-up suit today, but I don't have any cool tennis shoes to go with it. (Because I stepped in mud and ruined my awesome Guess, sparkle ones). How come you get one really cool thing only to find out that now you need something else?
I needed a lighted Halloween decoration for my window, so I bought one today. It's not double-sided so I can enjoy looking at it too. Boo.
The Fall trees for my Fall Village are too few. Hello? I'm NOT paying $8.00 a pop for little trees. Was that how much I paid last year? What was I thinking? But the pumpkins were on sale- but I already have pumpkins. Left the store with nothing.
I'm tired. It's raining. I could drink a cup of coffee and fix the whole matter. When it's bedtime, I'm going to feel great. I'd rather mope around and complain about being tired.
Had an incredible business meeting today with a client. We did everything we said we would for them. Their "numbers are up" because they hired us and will continue to do business with us!
So; my blow dryer broke, an employee quit, I didn't order enough for lunch, my dress is too big, my Boxer (Emerson) ruined my couch, I am still out of makeup, I don't have cool tennis shoes, my Halloween decoration is not what I expected, my Fall village has too few trees, it's raining, I'm tired BUT:
My client thinks our business is DA BOMB, so what do all these annoyances really matter?
How about it if I shut up and be grateful? Yup. That's what I'm a gonna do.
