All In a Day's Work


Once again, I had a meeting and you know that means it's A.D.D. time! Of course, I took the oppurtunity to zone out and clean out my purse. I made quite a few discoveries during the meeting.

Here are a few things I thought while I sat in yet another boring meeting at work.

1. I wonder how long I can go without blinking my eyes.
2. OMG! I totally just found a peppermint in the bottom of my purse!
3. These orange/red leather/cashmere gloves are awesome.
4. The leather is so soft on these gloves.
5. I can't believe I thrifted these gloves for 5 bucks..

6. SHUT UP! What does that tag say inside the glove? They are J. Crew Gloves! Who knew!
7. I wish there was a student in the building to pull the fire alarm.
8. I don't know how to feel about these booties.



9. These booties are literally the most comfortable heels I own! Why is it that these are the cheapest shoes I own and the most comfy while those RED Marc Jacobs heels cost me a grip and they hurt like hell?!?
10. Will anyone notice if I pull out my Scrabble cards and start playing by myself?
11. I should have gone to bed earlier instead of trying to watch The Wendy Williams show.
12. Why is that teacher wearing a Christmas "cosby-esque" sweater? She didn't get my memo on seasonal wear? Or Cosby sweaters in general?
13. I wish I had a Dr. Pepper.
14. I really should stop drinking soda.
15. My tights are really cute.

Your meeting sounds...fascinating. Hey, you discovered your gloves were from J. Crew, soft and pretty, so it was time well spent...

lmao...YOUS A FOOL! I can't wait for Zumba next week. You look way to cute for work. Man, I go to work looking like I got into a fight and lost. Sometimes I go in the bathroom, look in the mirror and say Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaammmmmnnnn like Smokey and Craig.

Moni @ CL Journal said...

A.D.D. in meetings, yup! Try Saturday classes or Monday evening classes, yup! I am not bold enough to clean out the purse, but I will write out my grocery list, respond to a text or two and check fb:) Now that I have some new blogs I will check them out as well!

Did you get any snow there?

Emily Kennedy said...

Bwaaa ha ha ha!!! I am TOTALLY like this in meetings. I detest them! Mostly almost always a waste of time. Although you had some very productive thoughts, so I guess it wasn't a complete waste!

Coming out of lurker-land to say HILARIOUS. My brain flits around like that too. Also, so in love with that Zara hooded jacket!

Hey, what a lot of trouble you take to dress for work! Hope they appreciate you!

Unknown Mami said...

I have a great coat from Zara! Who takes your pictures. Do you have a minion that follows you around?

cat said...

Now that was a great meeting?!?

I am a doodler - I always have coloured pens and doodle. After all, I am an architect and we should draw!

You actually have Scrabble cards? Boring meetings are the worst! Fortunately, I don't have to go to any anymore. Yea! So funny you think about your clothes so much, you crack me up!

Congrats on your SITS day!

Happy SITS Day!

Tiffany said...

LOL! Hope the meeting was productive. ;) LOVE your outfit!

gina said...

LMAO- totally unique and clever post!

MommaKiss said...

Those gloves are gorgeous.

Date Girl said...

hahah, I do the same thing during meetings. Not clean out my purse but completely zone out. I usually plan out my next blog or what I need to do at home. Ah work, a necessary evil!

Happy SITS day!

gringationcancun said...

My work meetings have too much drama to not pay attention.

I could really go for a Dr. Pepper, though!

Kearsie said...

Scrabble cards? I totes need to find some of those.

2busy said...

I hate meetings, too. It's like someone said, "We don't have anything else to do, hey! Let's have a meeting!"

J. L. W. said...

That must have been some meeting. I love secondhand shops. I found a like new pair of Kate Spade heels with little feathers at the toes in my size. I thought I was in heaven.

Jo said...

Ok I'll admit - I didn't READ any of this post - but I am IN LOVE with that jacket! Good choice!

Joy said...

I think that you spent your time wisely in that meeting. I mean, you could've been paying attention to the speaker, but instead you found out those gloves were J. Crew! Way more helpful. ;o)

Congrats on your SITS day!

Young Wife said...

Oh, wow. I used to make grocery lists and to-do lists during meetings so I wouldn't fall asleep. Stopping by from SITS.

JB's Cookinglady said...

I hate boring meetings so I know how you feel.

I really like the booties

Kim said...

I laughed out loud when you found your mint! :).

LisaDay said...

You make me laugh. Meetings how I hate them.

Happy belated SITS day.
