I don’t normally give advice. Most often, I keep my opinions to myself… in real life. This is my place to let that shit fly.
That being said…during the past few days I’ve spent a great deal of time in meetings and training sessions in which the dress code was listed as business casual. Business.
A few days ago, I noticed every man slated to give presentations to the room pretty much presented to one young woman. I couldn’t figure out why the presenters were so incredibly focused on this young woman… other than the fact that she’s a girl and they were guys… she was young… not so attractive but not super unattractive either. What I mean to say is that she wasn’t the sort of girl that people turn and take second looks at. Anyway, at one point she was returning to her seat from getting coffee which afforded her the opportunity to be walking towards my seat. And then I saw it…. holy shit. She was wearing a too thin t-shirt that was pastel green in color and a brassiere that was too thin and white in color… and she was, um, shall we say, busty.
If you are a woman who is well endowed, a woman with mountain peaks that are darker than flesh color, it might be a good idea to consider what you are covering those mountains with. Nursing pads, those things that soak up the leakage, well, they are a wonderful temporary solution to worn out brassieres and t-shirts. I know the woes of not being able to replace undergarments for busty women… they are quite expensive… so I’m all about trying to find less expensive ways to take care of shit until payday.
Or….WEAR A JACKET!
In 10 days of employment, I have attended 3 regional meetings, participated in 1 evacuation drill, scheduled 4 training classes (that I will be instructing), organized – mostly – my new office, and started reading all of the response plans. I’ve been a busy girl!
I’m curious to see who our new Pope will be. I can say with relative confidence that it won’t be the Cardinal here in Texas. I’m betting the new Pope will be Italian although the bookies are putting their bets on Cardinal Marc Ouellet. There are a butt load of Italian Cardinals in the running but they are ranked pretty low by the odds machine. An interesting tidbit…. there is a Cardinal from Sri Lanka. The land of Buddhist monks has a Diocese. Something else I wonder about… the College of Cardinals won’t enter conclave until March 1st, so how much talk is going on amongst those cliquish Cardinals? Politicking? This is the first time in more than 500 years that a living Pope will be around to offer insight, advice, and counsel to the new guy…. although who knows if that will happen or not. Do the Cardinals gossip about whose turn it is, who’s best and who sucks? I bet they do. They are human with the desire to promote and excel in their chosen career path. They probably stand in the holy locker room talking about whose man junk is too little or some shit.
Time to drag my cute self to work….
