Inspring lyric of the day.

"We're young
we're free
we'll fight
you'll see!
We're not going to take it,
no we aint' gonna take it
we're not gonna take it
(ok, so I personally am not that young, but I'm more young than old, so I claim this song for all who are young or feel young)

Coming later today Dark hallways

Concrete walls and banks of florescent lights have a specific kind of eerie glow.

disaster from a distance part II the mailroom strikes back

Halloween is a time for otherwise rational and well-dressed people to dress like strippers or crazy people on acid. Sometimes both.Theresa rarely participated in any holiday activities, and her costume usually consisted of little more than adding an orange scarf. She was very professional in that way. Since I had to file everywhere, I chose a modest pirate costume consisting of normal work clothes and a scarf around my head.  Several other women wore low cut leotards and headbands with kitten or rabbit ears on them. I grabbed a danish from the break room when I noticed a sudden silence. The phones stopped and time stood still. Theresa walked in dressed in a sexy french maid's outfit, her ruffled underwear clearly visible under the skirt. One good thing about carrying a few extra pounds is that some of them are bound to go to the chest. I still don't know how she did it, but she was able to prop what must have been 40 E's up and straight out.
Matt wore a pair of Groucho Marx glasses but when  Theresa walked in with those gravity defying breasts, even he noticed her.

Disaster from a Distance Part IV The Discovery Teaser

As my great aunt Selma used to say, "never put it in writing."  Aunt Selma could never have anticipated the advent of facebook or the careless use of  blogs to reveal even the dirty of laundry. . .

       That Tuesday, Matt was home taking care of his two boys who had caught the stomach flu. He was doing double duty since his wife Jen was gone staying with friends near school as she worked on her finals for her nurse anesthetist degree.  Theresa was left to her own devices on coffee break. for once, she looked almost vulnerable sipping her diet cola alone, when  Mrs. Johnson leaned across the table and tried to set Theresa up with a single nephew. When Theresa  declined, Mrs. Johnson asked her, "So why is a nice girl like you single?"  
        Like many single women, Theresa had answered the question and its variations with the stock answer of, "I choose to be," her tone changing in time from irritation, to suppressed hope, and finally, to grim certainty. And, after a saying it enough times and like many women, she convinced herself that it was true. To choose a life without romance is just as desirable as any grand  passion could ever be..                                                                       
Th  Theresa peered at little old Mrs. Johnson in her black polyester slacks and giggled, "It has its perks."  Theresa left for her lunch hour and didn't come back until Friday. The same woman who politely sneered when anyone missed a day as a moral failing, advising them to take a cold shower to invigorate the immune system, left for her lunch hour and didn't come back until Thursday. . . . . . . . . 
" "Had a great time  kayaking with  super-hottie Jason," the post read. As I looked down to find comments, I noticed that Matt's ever-present "like" to all of her postings was absent. In fact Matt's profile was absent, gone forever.

New Haircut

After over 10 years of having hair halfway down my back and no bangs, I went to Melissa, an excellent hairstylist in Bothell, WA and got 5" cut with bangs. I really like it; it takes about 1/2 the time to style, and I'll save some big money on conditioner and styling products.  If I put it in a french twist and add my classes, I may even come across as a real grown-up. If I straightened it and dyed it blond, I could even qualify for the Millionare Matchmaker's version of what a desirable woman should look like. That said, I won't put the girls on display or wear short short skirts with 5" heels. That look isn't so attractive in a teacher. Pics of the new hair coming soon.

Makeup Recommendation

Though Urban Decay is often the favorite cosmetic line of hipsters and teenagers, I have to say that their PG-13 named "Dew Me" makeup setting spray is the bomb! Put on all makeup except for mascara, spray about three times on face and voila, makeup actually stays. So far, I've only tested it in rain and wind with temps only up to 70 degrees, so we'll see. For those of you in weddings, graduations, or other events, give it a try or the other urban decay setting sprays.
