although it DID make me feel good that i was hit on by a not bad looking sober coworker last night at the holiday party within about a half hour of my arrival... ;) my hair was curly, pulled back just-so on the sides in lil sparkly clips.. i had my purplish blue dress on, and my roman bondage sandals... i didn't realize i LOOKED roman and 'classic' or 'vintage' until i had it pointed out to me many times ;) i felt beautiful for the first time in a LONG time. i was dressed classic roman in a crowd where everyone was sporting the 'little black dress' or red sparkly dresses. i stuck out. i had coworkers that never give me the time of day during work go out of there way to tell me that i looked wonderful.

i felt like a princess.

i had people do double takes, used to me being here at work, in frumpy, wrinkled clothes and hair yanked back in a sloppy clip, no make up, glasses... to being dressed like a GIRL, contacts in, make up done...

... and i carried my traditional Batz Maru silver lunch pail as my 'dressy purse'. i use it only for special occasions like that. in fact, when i opened it, i found last year's Christmas party invitation.

Oh my gosh, that's wonderful!

What a wonderful way to feel. :D I say focus on that feeling all day instead of the period-y, nasty letter-y feelings!

You don't need a dress to feel beautiful.
I am suprised you don't feel that way all the time.
women like you command a deeper sense of the word,
with the very way you think and look at life.
thats real beauty.

Sorry about not getting back to you earlier, I have been really sort of rushing around. I am back home for a while to get my minor surgery done, but I will be back in january. uh... other then that I am pretty much not doing anything except reading, sitting on the internet, and watching tv. (oh yeah and I am spending some time at a tibetan temple)

Princess Aubrey! Sounds like a lot of fun, what a great evening! Aren't you glad you went??

As for me, I'm glad I didn't go, the family didn't get home until 7 and I needed to get ready for bed at 9, I had much more fun talking with my friends online than I would have just observing my folks chat with old friends that knew them before I was born LOL

Re: awww!!
i have, around, but it's in very brief passing, and we're either too far from each other, or we're both engrossed in convo or he's on the phone, so it's not like we can talk...

Re: awww!!
:-( You should walk up to his desk and hang up his phone.. ...although maybe that isn't the best way to flirt.. I'm so backwards with these sort of things ;-)

Re: awww!!
lol - i'm not even allowed in his section of the company, cuz he works for a different company that was started by the same people, so it's sorta related, but not really, and we're in the same building (in fact, his office is exactly under my desk), so the only time i can see him or start a convo is in the hallways...

Re: awww!!
aHA. on occasion. but i leave people alone THAT way, cuz i HATE getting shot with rubber bands! Said is the biggest office war whore of them all, for a long time, we were all coming in to taped ear pieces, lotioned phone handles, keys on our keyboard mixed up (didn't work for me, =because if i look at the keys, i CAN'T type!), etc...

Re: awww!!
LOL! that sounds like a lot of fun, I've never been in a place full of office pranks, but I would be scared to do them for fear of getting in trouble :-D

Re: awww!!
i never do them myself, because i know how much i hate it when they're done to me, and my mommy always told me 'do unto others as you would have done unto you'.

I try to do that a lot..and it's easy to treat people you don't know as you would like to be treated, but it's harder to do that with people that have done something to you LOL
