9/27/11 3 Days (OMG!)...(Countdown to BOOBs)

When it rains, it pours.  I knew this BOOB's trip would come at my busiest time of the year, but I'm SO behind!  The last of my three rounds (way TOO busy!) of house guests/company have come and gone (fun times), and now I have a few days left to pull this together!

Side note; I spent yesterday with DH at home (he NEVER stays home from work)...we went to the PCP in the am, and he has two Specialist tests next week...please send some good vibes/prayers this way...DH needs them. 

OK, so why am I taking the time to blog?!! ...because I need a laugh right now...

Prepare yourselves...I'm officially announcing that I will be running around naked in Chicago.

...(and NO, I will NOT be running the 5K)...

Everyone will *gasp* at all my naked empty skin!...especially my bum...that is now all the way down in the back of my knees...

Apparently there is a dress-up night for the dinner Saturday and I have nothing to wear to the ball!  Do NOT even attempt to tell me 'Don't worry about it!' or  'You can wear anything!'  I'm a girl.  I have an empty closet.  I'm meeting these bloggers in real life for the first time.  It matters.

So I'm predicting that the Emperors New Clothes/naked at dinner isn't going to fly...the BOOBs will make me cover myself, lest they all get tossed out before we have a chance to order...hmmm...bread baskets on the tables...I need to save them from all those carbs...

I have no time to go shopping...I HATE shopping.  I spent 5 hours in Kohl's a few weeks ago...long story (a chapter's worth), but I came out without a dress...or new shoes.

Plan B...I have no energy or willpower left to go shopping anymore...I'm wearing a dress that's too tight for me...I bought it for DD for Christmas this year and it's a size 6.

I am NOT a size 6. 

Be forwarned, if you're sitting next to me that night, the studs on it will start popping off as I eat and hit you in the eye.  Just smile, look at me with your one good eye, and please tell me I look lovely.

I have no time to shop for new shoes.  BTW...If they are still in one piece, I'm donating the cute shoes I will be wearing that night to the clothing exchange at BOOBs...I've only worn them once before and apparently my feet shrunk along with my brain.  They're a size 10 (bigfooted women rule), and I usually wore a 9 before, so I've got 3 shoe pads on and they still are falling off my feet.  I can't walk more than 10 feet without falling out of them (crap...I picked the salad bar dinner...I'm guessing that will not be served to me at the table).

If you see me falling over, catch me before I break my arm, or it will all be your fault.

If we go dancing and I look like Elaine/Seinfeld dancing on the dance floor, it's the shoes, not me.

If I look like I've been drinking too much.

I have.

Can't wait!

Well you made me laugh too! Dress looks are so tiny!

Ronnie said...

I, for one, will be dancing around drunkenly as often as possible. Gotta burn off the sugar from the alcohol somehow.

Also, I'm pretty sure you are a 6, that dress fits beautifully. :)

Jen said...

lol!! Can't wait to meet you!!

I have nussing to wear...My clothes are too big or too small. I too have unexpected company coming today and spending the night...and I'm trying not to get stressed so my hives don't get any worse ;-) and

Dealing with the limo transport company has been a nightmare!

and what's a coat..I live in SO Cal? ;-)

Lynda said...

I have a really cute pair of black, size 9 peep-toe pumps that I can let you borrow! Lemme know if you want me to bring them.

Sandy Lee said...

I love the dress. Put on some big chunky jewellery and you'll be good to go. Can wait to meet you and that roomie of yours. You know the one who doesn't own a coat.

Judi said...

Well, I am going to put my vote in and tell you that the dress looks amazing on you. Strut your stuff (if you can in the shoes!). Size 6---wooo hoooo! I am just so jealous about this BOOBS thing. Maybe next year (I'm just telling myself that...I'm not counting on it--September in higher education does not lend itself well to more trips than absolutely necessary....). I'll be waiting right here for BOOB stories when you return! Rock Chicago and please have a drink for me...and that's an order!

Very nice to meet you! Saw you were a recent follower of mine and stopped by to get to know you as well.
