Pleather and Blue Eyeliner is a dish best served Saturday

I used to watch Office Space all through High School. It made me laugh- always. From the TPS Reports to the struggles with the Printers or your coworker telling you you've got a case of the Mondays... it's funny. However, looking back on my high school self, I want to just hit me upside the head knowing there was no way that I could have fully comprehended that movie until I worked in an office. The company I work for now is a huge company and is as corporate as they come. I don't think Corporations or their policies are bad (they are likely necessary) but it is still hilarious/frustrating at times (I guess that depends if you have a case of the Mondays or a case of the Fridays) having to adhere to corporate code.

Working is weird- you spend SO MUCH time in one place (if you're an office gal like myself) sitting in one desk at your computer... with the same people (one of my best friends at work is like this 50-year-old Dad). It's fabulous, hilarious, horrible and a case study all rolled into one.

It's also the reason Fridays are so grand. No more analyzing or restructuring data... just me, my friends, my time... (I love how I'm explaining what Friday is to you guys like you don't know)... anyway SHUT ME UP.

My point of this pointless post is that I would sooner die than wear blue eyeliner to work. But last Saturday night I tried to rock it because hellllllllllo, companies rent us to conform Monday-Friday but Friday Night- Sunday, that's all me baby.

{Saturday 2/12/2011: Blue eyeliner, fringe boots, bra straps, pleather pants... yup, it's the weekend and I'll dress how I want to}

My day will suck no matter what merely by comparison- my baller friend Kiesha who is this insane young professional (she's with me in the last plaid picture in the post below, in the adorable boots!) gets to meet President Obama today as she does PR for a company he's touring here. I think that's outstandingly cool- I would love to meet literally any President (the end of the day, I think they all meant well), but it'd be a true honor to meet Obama. She's really getting a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity...I don't think I'd wear blue eyeliner to that either.
Have a wonderful day and an even better start to your weekend!!

the bf works for intel and yea, they get to see obama. that's why we are not leaving for sun river till after 1pm because of road closures.

anyway, you look fab in your blue eyeshadow .. i'm afraid that i'll end up looking like a hooker on hollywood boulevard! lol.

i totally get having best friends at work who are older ... like my admin team, we are like this weird but totally awesome family. there's only two of us who are under 35 and he and i are both from cali. the rest are in their mid 40's up. but it's all good.

Office Space is one of my favorite movies. I loved it in high school because it reminded me of my Dad and his job. When he retired I think I quoted Office Space repeatedly to him at his retirement party. And he got a red stapler. Anyway.

Meeting the President would be so amazing!

I feel you girl!! I work 40 hours a week, at a desk, staring at a computer all day. I feel like my brain slowly fries every week. But oh how glorious Fridays are!!!!! Your blue eyeliner is fierce! I will have to try that sometime.

I totally feel you on corporations, the mix of people sometimes cracks me up. I'm sure we could all have our own version of Office Space :)

Girl - the blue liner is kick-A!! What kind did you use? It's sooo blue and gorge!
