My Mouth: Size Ten

I'm well aware that its only Thursday, although the way this week has gone it feels like it should be at least Saturday...in September.

I've been working on a big proposal for about the last two weeks. My friends? She is out the door. Bye bye proposal. Bye bye twelve hour days! Maybe - at last - I can go back to slacking a little bit. Is that too much to ask?

This afternoon I got past another work hurdle...I had to deliver a speech to 150 people. I'm horrified to admit that the words "I'm so glad I didn't have to follow a man wearing a dress" came out of my mouth as I was introduced. Yes, there was context and sure, people laughed (and not in that oh dear jesus what a freak kind of way) so I guess I wasn't totally out there. Still. Who says that to a crowd? Me, apparently.

Tomorrow? I'm working from home in the morning and taking the rest of the day off. And attempting to pry my foot from my mouth.

So what was the man you followed wearing? A skirt?

Yaaay for getting the giant project done. You rock. As a fellow blogger, I'm allowed to say that all I want :P

Have a good pseudo-long weekend. You deserve to slack off!

Man, apparently your meetings are much more exciting than mine are, if they involve speeches and men in dresses.

Way to go on the proposal and speech! Headache gone. A little slacking's good for the soul. That's my theory. Wondering what the context around man wearing a dress was... Good thing it was in context. Can you imagine the reaction had it not been?!

Yes and I like others here, am really curious about the context of the man in the dress. Details please. :) I've tried working from home...it doesn't work...I end up reading blogs and chatting all day. I'm such a slacker if given the opportunity. LOL.

I hear ya... and I forgot to reply with what I thought your voice would sound like. :) But honestly, I can't think of any way to describe what I imagined, just different.

Have a good weekend and relax!

Men in dresses? Eating shoes? I think these 12 hour work days make you a tad delusional :)

Not working so hard anymore? Does this mean your ass will come back to you?

Your foot didn't happen to be encased in a high-heeled shoe, did it? 'Cause high heels are hard to get out of your mouth. ...or so I've heard.
