Did you every write a totally clever intro full of wit and verve about how busy you are and how you get everything done by making time in your day to simultaneously run on your trampoline, respond to emails and texts and watch a DVR'd episode of Criminal Minds and/or to edit photos for posts at stoplights and then lose the whole damn thing because you were so tired you stupidly answered yes to the question about navigating off the page without saving your changes?
This has got me hot enought to be tweeting at Yahoo as the site sponsor for at least one site that sells this costume.
I'm not going to bother identifying the other brouhaha that's got me worked up.You'll figure it out. I snapped this picture after work because I don't have hair days this good very often and I wanted to memorialize it. Then I thought . . . this would look even better if I held a sign over my head that said, "I've got a graduate degree, a challenging career, a 25 + year marriage, I've raised four good people and I volunteer about 20 hours a month . . . What's YOUR (expletive deleted) excuse?"
Not that it will come to news as anyone that I'm over standing by silently while the damaging and unrealistic expectations of our society brainswashes women into trying to fulfill impossible stereotypes, but really, you could stick a fork in me.
I was originally joking about the sign over the head idea (which I must credit to Cassie via FB), but now I kind of like it. If I wanted to do something with it, could I get volunteers to do it with me? Maybe just pick one accomplishment that has nothing to do with looks, make a sign, have someone snap your photo and email it to me?
Also on the feminism front . . . Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg. Loving it.
