Hello! It's been a minute. Or a week. Or eleventy million utterly exhausting news cycles. Or all three!
My new job! Is great! As are all my new coworkers, at least as far as I tell by their smiling avatars and cheerful voices on our conference calls. Despite thinking this was going to be a huge transition back into the world of commutes and professional office attire, I am still working from home for the foreseeable future. So that whole "actual pants and having to wear them" thing has not yet come up.
(I wasn't sure of the video call situation before my first day, so I finally colored my hair last weekend and woke up early on Monday to put on makeup and find some sort of respectable-looking top. But our meetings are mercifully webcam-free so day to day I can continue to look a Vitamin D-deficient hobbit.)
(I had to leave the house one time this week for an employment drug screen, and was almost out the door when I realized wearing a Steel Magnolias/Ouiser Bordreaux tank top that asks, in all capital letters, ARE YOU HIGH CLAIREE? miiiiight not be the best wardrobe choice for the day. So I'll need to work on dressing myself respectably once/if things ever go back to some semblance of normal.)
(Somewhat related, both in terms of clothing and really outdated movie references, but has anyone else tried to put on cute shoes for the first time lately and felt like Agador Spartacus from The Birdcage?)
As we've been watching a lot of movies, we've also been going through a lot of popcorn. I asked Jason to add a bag to our grocery order, but they were sold out. No worries, though, Jason found it on Amazon! He ordered two bags, he told me.
No. Not two bags. Two pounds.
(Yes, we will be donating a LOT of popcorn.)
These photos are actually from last Friday night. But still relevant, as ever.
