I need a montage!
Andrea: My personal life is hanging by a thread, that’s all.
Nigel: Well.. join the club, that’s what happens when you start doing well at work, darling. Let me know when your whole life goes up in smoke. That means it’s time for a promotion.
I’m watching “The Devil Wears Prada” this morning and skipping over the horrendous bits (they killed the meaningful parts of the manuscript to make a marketable movie) and there’s a scene where the on-hand queer Nigel makes Andrea realize that she’s not really putting herself into the job, and gives her a complete makeover: clothes, shoes, makeup, hair, accessories. And it turns her into Super-Assistant™! If only it were so simple to accomplish a great deal of work in real life.
Not that I couldn’t use a shopping trip for new clothes and all, but I doubt it would make me any happier about wandering into the office on a daily basis. Part of me wishes I’d acted a little more stereotypically gay when I was first hired, then there’d be no problem with me being an absolute bitch around the office. I think I need to go on a quest to rediscover the source of my powers. It’s Spring, I’m single, I need to recapture the fun that I had living in Logan Circle. Of course that was a few years ago, and the weather was decidedly better in early April… and I was about 20 pounds lighter – *blegh.
I believe I need to start treating myself to some really nice dinners out after work this month. Eating solo means I’ll have to have good books on hand, but that shouldn’t be a problem. So long as I buffer those nights with evenings of toast and water, I should be on track for when it actually gets warm out! I want to go for Starbucks, but it’s 33 degrees out…
*sighs and starts looking for his heavy coat
