What Was I thinking?

Loved Ones,
Just stopping in long enough to ask the age old question that comes to all of us in time as we contemplate our place in the universe and the roll we are destined to play in this life.

Hurry, I have to bring home the bacon, fry it up in the pan and never let you forget you're a man - by making you buy me stuff.
Am I outta my stinkin' mind?
I honestly didn't think twice when I agreed to attend a 3 day seminar for work knowing fully I have to turn in a reworked proposal for my other work. AND I just thought - I'll answer that reader question in my spare time! So I may not be back until Thursday or Friday. In the meantime I will be thinking about you (yes even while I am in sessions, don't tell the people trying to teach me how to improve customer service.)
HAVE it ALL? I can't even get a hold of it ALL!

(explains a lot about customer service, don't it?)
and contemplating the world's second most puzzling question: Should clothing come with age recommendations?

Some looks are timeless but are they ageless?

Be Back soon.

  1. But..but Dearest Helen, what if we have a crisis while you're gone?! Oh dear, where ARE the anxiety pills? The rest of the week without Dear Helen? Girls, band together, we CAN do this - with Xanax of course :- )
    Hm. Why all of a sudden does the irrational urge to wear leopard ankle books seem perfectly rational?! HURRY HOME HELEN!

    1. Leopard ankle boots sound wonderful after a day in my freebie company t shirt listening to people try to make me excited to overcome objections! Overcome them? I mostly raise them!

  4. Oh dear, I went on a course like that once, it drove me daft!
    Surely a leopard print tutu and matching boots combo is ageless? I can't image they'd suit a 95 year old any more than they would a toddler. x

    1. But the 95 year old would have to be careful not to get her bustline caught in her waistband!

  5. We'll miss you while you're away. When you get back, let's discuss that timeless/ageless thing a little more. That's a frequent discussion a friend and I have.

    1. I wish I had known that when I decided NOT to buy a yellow net cocktail apron the other day because I thought it was too flashy. Oh well I won't be 95 for a few more weeks...

    1. THis is more a plastic fork and get your pinky out of your nose kind of crowd, I'm afraid. Or at least they are now that I'm here. We are so far out of the loop they couldn't get a computer signal at the tech school... IN THE COMPUTER LAB!

    1. Well, now I have to make a skirt like that. And those boots. And I shall stand just as that woman does and pass judgement on all those who do not please me. IOW - business as usual.

  9. Well, hope you are having some kind of fun at the seminar. :) If you wore one of those outfits above, you might at least be the topic of conversations...

  10. If only I had thought of that Karen!

  12. Wow! I think we feel like that woman juggling a LOT! Age regulations.....I wouldn't think so, but, there are TIMES that I would argue that ~ lol!!

    1. You wouldn't say that if you say me in Target the other day eying leopard print jeans.

  13. I think that there are some looks that look horrible on everyone. We just excuse it on youth because they don't know better yet. Work can get you. Mine does all the time.

  14. LOL - good point about the looks and work.
