What's A Girl To Wear?

Well, I have to attend an Equal Opportunity Dinner tonight at the Hyatt. I go every year. We eat a dinner which is usually cold by the time it hits our table and have to listen to the guest speaker. Last year wasn't so bad, but when you attend about ten dinners a year for various reasons, the message is always the same, with everyone feeling like they are bigger people because they are on the board, or the have contributed thousands of dollars, blah. blah. blah.

Can you tell I am looking forward to it? I have to find something to wear and considering I have loads of laundry to do and I have not dropped off my dry cleaning, the pickings will be slim. Oh well, who cares, right? It's all about equal opportunities. My non-dressy self has equal rights like the rest of the melting pot we call America.

I am not in the best of moods this morning, so before I start going off on even a further tangent, I will get off my soapbox now. Good day.

Might I suggest....... Going Naked. It is cost effective, does not add to your laundry pile, It will incite comment and conversation and will make a statement.

Just a thought.

Later Y'all

That meloncutter! That would certainly be an equal-opportunity outfit.

Hope your day got better.

It's too bad we have to worry so much about what we wear. And while I am not big on public nudity - meloncutter might be onto something. I'd do it as a protest vote. Sort of a clothing anarchy thing.

Keep your chin up Abbagirl. You have a knack for cheering me up so the least you could do for yourself is focus some of that possessiveness inwardly for a moment. You’ll get through the dinner fine, and if not well it's just one night.

The secret, abbagirl, is in shoes that go tac-tadack.
I abhor these dinners too.

Well, by now that dinner is long over. Hope you had the chance to at least spill a drink conveniently onto some loud talker's lap. Take care.

The REAL secret to getting through those things is to randomly yell "HOT DAMN!" in 5 - 12 minute intervals.

I'm telling you, the whole evening will just fly by.
