TRUE STORY :
Once a week we have a video conference call with our main office in Ohio. It’s nice to see familiar faces (there are only 3 other people in our CA office with me), but this video-chat thing also comes with a couple sucktastic downfalls :
I am forced into acting like a proper member of the working class and wear something that is not a hooded sweatshirt, and pants that do not have holes in the knees
I am forced to wear makeup as to not appear as a feature-less face with a nappy ponytail on screen
Today was one of those days. I dressed myself in clothes that were not laying half-dirty on the floor, and even made an attempt to cover all the freshly ripened zits that have littered my apparently pre-pubescent face. (What gives, seriously?)
So when Ohio’s video feed wasn’t working and it was determined we’d have a normal (boring) conference call, I openly expressed my disgust that I “put on mascara and got dressed up for NOTHING” to my coworker here.
Completely forgot about the speakerphone in the middle of the table.
Yeah, Ohio got a real kick out of that. I am such a bum.
p.s. The OUa(L) print-version order has been placed, and is scheduled to arrive the first week of March. I’ll be sure to let you know how it turns out, and yes, Janae, I’ll post pictures of B’s reaction ;)
p.s.s. If anybody has any desire to kill a couple trees and turn their blog into a real-life book, I totally suggest looking into blog2print. It was around $32 (free shipping!) and required about 1 ounce of brain power.
p.s.s.s. If you’re super rational and not impulsive like I’ve been and would rather wait until I actually receive the book and can give a proper review, good for you and your fully-functioning adult brain.
