My Clothes go well with my Glasses... They Stay On.

Has anyone else been noticing the proliferation of articles about women who are stripping now in bad times?

OK, maybe not proliferation, maybe only two, but still... its two more than I'd seen in the past.

The first one was about some place in Rhode Island, some strip club, that was looking for more strippers, bartenders, waitresses, and received something like 5 times the number of applicants per job opening.

Now there is some article about how more women are turning to stripping in this bad economy as well as adult movies.

Obviously they are not 43 year old women who have borne three children. Who in the hell would pay to see a body that looks like a crumpled up old brown paper bag?

So as I sit here realizing I will more than likely lose my job by the end of the year, I think we can all feel certain that I will... NOT... be stripping.

Good Grief.

By the way, I had to get new glasses as I lost my last pair. It had gotten to the point where I didn't want to drive at night and my prescription from 10 years ago wasn't cutting it.

I was at work on Friday extraordinarily frustrated with a project that I'm working on.

I stormed into my Tech Leads cube, a frenzy of frustrated energy, arms flailing, as my TL quietly looked up from his desk, waiting to hear what crazy thing was going to come out of my head.

With great exasperation I said, "OK. WHY did you assign this one to me? GAH!" to which he replied, "Umm... because you have glasses now and you look really smart?"

To which I grinned and did the womanly, "FINE!" and went back to my cube.

If all else fails, I can evidently always LOOK smart. Even if I don't feel it...

Oh I still have them! They're the only shoes that hide my nasty feet! My "I'm as tall as Tammi shoes". :)

So since you brought it up, how are those lovely tootsies of yours doing?

Joyce tells me she married me in spite of my glasses. (Must have been my dazzling engineer wit, eh?)

I wear glasses for driving/distances, and at church it is now an established routine among the little kids that they will all try on my glasses once the service is over!

Bob- oh I have a whole post on them alone... buying shoes. Gah! They are fine... ugly... and its time to start running.

Rachel- My boys love doing that now! With my new prescription, that is even stronger as my astimagism seems to have worsened, they find it fascinating.

JihadGene- NO!!!! Good Lord...

Hmmmm, I'm thinking that people are missing the real point here, which is the median level of stripper hottness is on the rise! Woooo!

Too bad I'm broke....
