The Lady Wore Black...............................

Ok, note to self, I need to stop scheduling early morning meetings, as I am getting tired of getting up early!! I have another 10am meeting tomorrow!! Why oh why do I do this to myself?? I think because I can then have an early day and go home early, but right now, I think I would opt for the later schedule...

I was late today anyway by 1/2 hour....But my boss was cool with it and we met at 10;30 am instead. Our meetings went well, although I was much depressed as I didn't get to go to Sephora as I so hoped, but then on my way home pouting about the non Sephora day, I realized I can go tomorrow!! There is a new Sephora in Novato, so on my way to the climbing gym, I can swing over to Sephora and have loads of makeup fun!!!! Yeah!!!!

So in other news my poor precious girl ( my oldest dog) has run out of her incontinence pills...And I could have sworn the vet said that it was just the one lot of pills she needed to take, but as she has run out, she again is starting to pee at unexpected times after dinner. The vet said it is because of when she was spayed as a young dog, and now her syphincter (have no idea how to spell that)is loose. And the pills help to tighten her syphincter. So at some point tomorrow, I need to get her more syphincter pills....My poor precious girl, at the moment she looks so sad, and everytime she feels movement in her lower extremities she gets up and runs away from herself. Like to say "that wasn't me, I didn't do that!!"

And in the last bit of news worthy happenings today, my boss asks me, "why do you wear so much black", and I replied, " why is there a problem with me wearing black?" to which she says, "Oh no, you just look like one of those gothic people...." Now I find when people ask me this question, it is a bit baffling as I never ask someone that wears a lot pastels, or bright bright colors, why they wear so much color....., however I get this question a lot, just like when people find out I have been married for so long and I don't have children. Well why don't you have children?? Can you not have them??? Now if I couldn't, wouldn't you think this would be very upsetting to me?? So I find the best way to handle this question re: children, is the reason I don't have children is because I don't like them..... They either laugh at this or look so horrified. Is there a problem with being honest, you were nosing around in my business wanting to know why I don't have them. And then I usually get, well you don't really mean that,,,,, why not, some people don't like dogs or cats, and they choose not to have them, I don't like children, so I chose not to have them. Simple. I am just the gothic black clothes wearing non breeder.

What were you going to get at Sephora? Non-GF and I are planning a Sephora attack on Friday. I'm looking for fragrances, maybe something from Clean. I'm so thrilled with my tinted moisturizer from Bobbi Brown that I can't even think of anything foundational right now, although BeneFit always gets my attention. No, wait - Urban Decay Baked, and maybe that marshmallow powder.

I am always looking for either new eyeshadow or new lipstick. And of course that new Dior mascara that NGF is talking about!! My favorite frangrance right now is D&G Feminine from Dolce and Gabbana, I also like the original Anna Sui one in the purple bottle. Now, I totally am in shopping mode, best get off to work so I can shop shop shop!! I let you know this evening what I found!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why are people dumb like that? They ask the question (nosy-asses that they are) and you answer. WTF? When she asked about the black clothes and said you looked goth, did you say "well, I am"?

Jennifer said...

Yes, I agree with Liz, WHY are people so nosy and not only that, judgemental about it too! Thats fine if they are curious as to why you don't have children but I can't stand when people have their own opinion and think they are right about it!! Pah!

Good luck shopping!! I'm a nonshoppingnongirlfriend. :)

People are just damned rude. This morning the courier said, "you look drained", i.e. "you look like SHIT." I should have told him about my female problems - that would button his lip.

Yeah, I get the opposite reaction when I tell people I have cats. They yell, "YOU HAVE x CATS?!" I wouldn't say, "oh my GOD! You have FOUR KIDS?! Why don't you use birth control?!"
Sheesh.

I tend to ask people who've had 3 or more - and yes, I truly am this tactless - "So, which one of you is going to get fixed?"

vampyregirl said...

when she asked me if I was gothic, I think she kinda new the answer, as I just looked at her, like what do you think....
Pisser, that is too funny about the birth control thing, must say that next time I get dumb ass comments made at me, as I also get the why do you have so many dogs??

Pisser said...

*pffft* Maybe because they have more tact
than PEOPLE?!

Your black hair color sounds gorge.

I can't read this stuff or I will want to
spend entire paycheck on cosmetics. Bought
$2.00 generic Safeway skin cleanser and thought
I was all clever. Now am breaking out.

vampyregirl said...

oh Pisser, never never by Safeway cleanser, no matter how bad it is calling to you. There is stuff in those cleansers I would be scared to clean my floors with!
