Today is Jeans Day™ (one of, like, three we have all year) and I busted out my brand new Target jeans. You Know!!

I swear, I know I am like 50% cooler because I wear jeans from Target, but unfortunately, today I lost all of my cool points because I walked around with the long skinny sticker advertising your jean size that runs down the back of your leg.

Now everyone at work knows I’m a size 4!

I'll Tell You WHAT!

I would encourage anyone with a will of aluminum (read: NOT STEEL) to avoid working in Purchasing over the holidays.   For you will end up a chubby spinster with chocolate stains on your shirts.


Why? you ask.


Because suppliers, they like to buy us stuff.  Edible stuff.  Caloric stuff.  Tons and tons of edible caloric stuff.  They think it will help in their efforts to sell us their crap.   Hahaha, if only they knew our Supplier Selection Procedures didn't include "What kind of holiday gifts do they give?  Generic crap like calendars, or edible food stuff crap like shrimp-sized cashews or designer chocolate?"   If only.


And your will, since it is weak like aluminum (not strong like steel), your will draws you TO the candy-stuff, instead of AWAY from it like it's supposed to.


But hot damn if I don't looovelovelove the suppliers who send us Harry & David Dark Chocolate Carmel Corn.   Oh, to work in purchasing…

Happy Birthday!

To Melvil Dewey, creator of the Dewey Decimal System!  Huzzah!


Thanks to good old Dewey, I can find my library books with great ease, and don’t have to sift and search for hours on end, combing the shelves for the latest novel or biography du jour.  Digital search engines at the library are for chumps!
