ďBeing powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you arenít.Ē Ė Margaret Thatcher
I didnít get a chance to update yesterday, people bustling about the office, M.s. coming in for lunch, things to get done, people to socialize with. And work, of course. Letís seeÖ the other night, Tuesday, I believe, I went to dinner with M.s. at the Kensington Grill. Sesame tofu is tasty, and the white chocolate martini is to die for. Like two little lovebirds, we cooed to each other, our eyes held in a fond stare, another picturesque moment for my mental album. When we got home, I was tired and full, but still managed to enjoy some new toys. ZAP! POW! BANG! ZIP! Hee hee hee.
Oh, electricity. Letís see, what nextÖ Iím going to redecorate my office! Thatís right, M.s. with an eye will help me with the paint, the lighting, I will be the envy of the building, and I even have permission to go forward with whatever Iíd like. They know not what they do. Last night was fun! Thai food with Ollie and M.s., and then the Ould sod, Gregory at the mic, Hatchett Brothers with all of their energy, and best of all, Faye was out to play! This sister of mine doesnít get out much, being a teacher and young mother, so it was quite the treat to enjoy the scene with her, the same scene she introduced me to a handful of years ago.
Today, Iím freaking out the office. 1950ís beehivish (Barbarism) French twist in my hair, conservative enough outfit, and a leather collar with a single, silver CLAW right smack dab in the middle. Tee hee. The ladies are squealing and squawking over it, but the real test will come when I meet with the HMFIC this mid-morning. I plan on having control of this meeting, and this control is insured by the distraction my interesting ensemble is bound to cause him. And yes, I am confident that this one will be distracted. Men in power are easily thrown if youíve got a strong arm.
So anyhoo, tonight Iím studying. I take two tests on Monday. Two tests that will accelerate me through 4 months of school and save me four THOUSAND dollars. Iím serious about passing, so Iím going to take all of these practice tests and study until I pass out. Or, until I need a break, a situation in which My slave comes in very handy. Tomorrow, Iím off at noon! Gallery opening, Dad home, breakfast with friends, another gallery opening, Easter, holy shit this weekend is going to be busy!
Iím going to go prepare my paperwork for my meeting with the man. As Faith Whittlesey once said, ďRemember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels.Ē
It's raining hard outside my office window. I fucking LOVE the rain. Time to make things happen.
