Captain’s Log 5,574
I want to go to work about as much as I want to clean grout with a toothbrush. Actually, that grout thing doesn’t sound too bad after the debacle I endured on Friday. Name dropping…..making references to a wealthy lifestyle that simply does not exist, etc. All in an attempt to impress someone who really does have money. Saying things like “I never fly commercially anymore – only private jets.” Give me a break! My favorite was “I don’t DO grocery stores!” Well la-dee-fookin-la-la-la!

It was so embarrassing. Fortunately, the person with the real money saw right through the facade and decided to discuss books with me instead. We had a grand time discussing Fifty Shades of Grey. Leaving Margaret Hamilton in the dust. It is always SOOOO obvious to me when I am around someone who doesn’t read and I see a place to step in and redirect the focus. Stops their momentum instantly. Leaves them in my intellectual dust. And I enjoy every minute of it when someone deserves to be left standing there looking bewildered. I don’t care how much money you pretend to have, if you don’t read, you don’t have the intellectual chops it takes to maintain intelligent conversation. Period. End. Go back under your rock.
I am getting ready for my trip! YAY! Since I am so allergic to dyes, I always have to wash everything in scent-free soap before I wear it. That was the fate of my new underwear. I also decided to wash all the capri pants I am taking just because…..just because. I want to know everything in my suitcase is freshly-laundered. I love doing laundry. Not kidding.
Off to the salt mines to pretend I am focused and working hard. That is SO not true. My eye is on the prize! I get picked up about 11:30 Wednesday morning and head out for Chicago. First stop on this amazing adventure!
