Hey, I think this is my 100th post. Doesn't this mean that I get syndication money now?
They let us out of work early today. I have never really understood that, offices letting you out early because you get the next day off. I mean, why? Don't get me wrong, I was off like a shot at 2 p.m. There was an outline of my body crashing through the wall, getting out of there. But I do not get what we are supposed to do with this extra time.
And by the way, it is 3:18 p.m. Got out of work at 2:00, got home at THREE EIGHTEEN P.M. Nice traffic.
So, I have to tell you the truth. I bought a dress on Sunday. Remember in elementary school when boys would say, "Dress up for Sunday!" and then flip your dress up? What a bunch of jerks young boys are.
I am going to yet another wedding soon, and I went to the mall on Sunday to purchase new underthings. But did I? No. I am still wearing Marvin Garden's boxers, my mom's girdle and my bathing suit because I need new chones.
For whatever reason, I convinced myself that my marry 'em and bury 'em all-purpose dress would not suffice for my next wedding. So I went to the Ann Taylor. Now, sue me. I know Ann Taylor is not cutting edge, and that I am not cool, but I like me the Ann Taylor. It is classic, pretty, and I do not look like I am trying to be 21. There is a store here called Forever 21, which just makes me sad. Do we really want to be forever 21? At this point, I would have to go in twice, to match my age.
To make a long story really boring, I bought this dress. And no, I didn't turn into a really attractive African-American model when I put it on. That is not a picture of ME, per se. Just a picture of the dress.
They were having a sale at Ann Taylor, but of course I bought the one item in the store that was full price.
I would say this is my biggest cheat so far, and right at the halfway point. Nice.
I guess that's all I have to say about that. Happy 4th of July, everybody! We're independent! Every year I make Marvin Gardens listen while I read the 4th of July chapter from Little Town on the Prairie. This year the book is already packed. So if anyone has that chapter, please type it word-for-word into the comments for me, just up to the part about the despots. Marvin will be SO happy.
