On prettier things…

Friends, story of my life (coming off of one of the gnarliest Mondays ever), I woke up this morning with a zit above my left eyebrow.  Not just above it, but rather more in the “middle of my forehead”-above.  No lie, I have not had a zit since my freshman year of college and it has been pure magic. 

Right now?  Just call me tri-clops.

Yes, that means at this point right now, you should be referring to me as Puffy McPufferson-Tri-Clops.  It’s a new twist on an old favorite – the hyphenated last name.  But I think we can all agree that it would be best if I don’t have to add another name tomorrow.

That little splash of insanity aside, it’s been so long since I’ve had a zit, I don’t even know what you do with the damn things.  Inhale an entire pack of birth control pills and zap it with some hormone-induced rage?

Probably not.

But a girl can dream…right?  And, in the meantime, since the unvarnished truth is no fun to focus on, let’s turn our minds to prettier things.

Obviously, if I wasn’t working in a business-casual office (or really, if I wasn’t working at all) and if money wasn’t of any particular importance, this is what I would love to be cavorting around in this week.

What’s not to love, right?  All of it is gorgeous and none of it violates my rule on purchasing over-priced jersey fabrics, which Katie* seems to embrace enthusiastically as well.  Live the rule and love it, friends.
