Yesterday morning

Yesterday morning the weather was bad. It took everyone I know 3 times longer to get to work than usual. I have about a 10 minute walk from the parking garage to my building, and it was snowing like crazy-to the point where I could barely see because it was flying right into my eyes. I walked in with a co-worker and spoke to a bunch of people on the elevator. On the way to my desk I stopped and chatted with several people in my department. I got to my desk and spoke to my entire team at length. I spoke to more people face to face than I have in 2 weeks.

At 11:30 I got up and put my coat on so I could go meet the guys for lunch. At the last minute I decided to run to the bathroom to freshen up. On the way I said hi to more people. When I got into the bathroom and looked in the mirror, this is what I saw:

My eyelashes had gotten wet from the snow while I was walking to work and had subsequently smeared my mascara all over the entire top half of my face. Not one single person told me. Not one. Dear absolutely every single person that I work with including girls who should know you’re supposed to tell another girl when there are blatant makeup mishaps, maybe a little heads up next time. That’s all I’m saying.

By the way that picture of me is surprisingly accurate. I have only two strands of hair and am just a floating head with red lipstick. Wait let me just try something here…..

Oh yeah--it's meant to be.

That's hilarious! Just be thankful your pants weren't split too. I used to have a great aunt who would put her makeup on like you do. She used to put her lipstick on so far outside her lips she looked like Ronald McDonald.

And by the way, this is the best blog ever. If John is 100% evil (and he is) and I'm averaging around 50% evil, you're totally kicking our asses with like, maybe 5% evil in there.

So keep it up!

I just today discovered your blog and I am already addicted. I have not laughed this much at work since I started here two years ago. Thank you for sharing.

BTW - I would have totally told you what was up w/your makeup... cause that's just how I roll.
