Guess what I was wearing when I wrote this title?

I recently met a woman who, like myself, works out of her home. She told me that she gets up at the same time every morning, goes through her normal morning routine, and gets dressed and ready for work just like she would if she worked in a public office.

I told her "Yeah, I don't do that."

I admire the ethic. It's an attractive ethic. Exactly the kind of ethic you can stand back, have a nice long look at, and say "Yep, damn fine ethic, that" about.

There's no way in hell I can emulate that ethic. I'm the girl who decided that a large enough sweater could turn a pair of flannel pajamas into a three piece ensemble back when I worked the sales floor of a furniture store. The likelihood of my wearing pants before noon any day that I don't have to leave the house is right up there with, well, probably the likelihood of my getting hired to sell furniture again any time soon.

So any time you're in the Edmonton area and have a pressing need for a magician or some other kind of live entertainment give me a call. You won't be talking to just another suit in a headset. In fact I'll let you picture me wearing anything you want.

My flannel's getting humid just thinking about it.

Sweetie! I was just thinking about you! Happy Thanksgiving! And a few more exclamation points for good measure, why not!!!

Haha! Yeah, that would be me. Luckily, I have a job that just requires that I wear close-toed shoes and something that I don't mind getting filthy.

Thanks for stopping by.
I'm so trying to at least put jeans on instead of sweats whilst I sit here with my leg in plaster. But I do let myself not put the make up on if no-one is stopping by as the dog's stopped being scared by the look now!!!

I worked from home for a year -- I was lucky to be dressed by the time I went back to bed!

I'm kind of like that. If I have to be up for school or whatever then obviously I get dressed (I don't think I've ever worn my pajamas to class, though that is a popular thing to do around here), but if I don't have anywhere to be I usually sleep late and take my time getting dressed.

That's probably something I should address.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. Hope you get the pink toilet paper.

I work from home and mainly live in t-shirts and pajama pants.

Ha! I've been working from home a lot this year and I know exactly what you mean. I've had to take up running just to give myself a reason to get in the shower :)

And I'm glad you're back!
