Our "fake office wear dress" may look like it's ideal for work when it's floating on a white background on our website, but in reality the skirt is only six inches long and it has a weird cutout (not visible in photo)that will prevent you from wearing a bra. Perfect for your next halloween costume: "sexy employed person."
@crane your neck Me! I was just posting on the Toast thread about how I'm newly friendless. And I haven't actually unpacked yet. And the list of things I need to buy to make my apartment functional is both endless and incalculably expensive. (am I commiserating too much? there's a lot on my mind.)
@bessmarvin Me too! I've lived my whole life in "friendly and conventional" territory and now I'm wondering if I've been bothering all these nice people.
@daisicles Ugh, I did that for a few months and it was hell. Like I spent every minute of every shift actively fighting the urge to just stand up and leave until I finally actually did. It's not that I don't like talking to people-- it's that you don't get one damned minute to just sit and breathe. As soon as you finish one call they connect you to the next and you have to start reading the script over again. Not a single moment for your own thoughts for hours and hours.
How come nobody told me this? I was under the impression that I was just buying ones that didn't fit or wasn't "walking in them right" when all along everyone has just been withstanding the same UNSPEAKABLE PAIN? Ugh fuck you guys.
@maybe partying will help I've always called it devil's rain, which I thought was reasonably common but I guess it didn't make the map.
@Elsajeni yes! I heard the TAL episode on this and have been wondering ever since if you can have the opposite condition. I get really unpleasant, skin-crawly feelings at the back of my head when I hear soft brushy/scrapey sounds. The worst is the sound of other people brushing their teeth, I can't stand it.
@martinipie Oh god, I've been growing mine out for like a YEAR and only now is it looking like a real haircut and not just a mullety transitional stage. But even after all that effort I sometimes (like right now) just want to chop it all off. I wish I had like, some high-end wigs so I could go back and forth without all the trouble.

I used to live near a FNCY LDY, which is my favorite ever.

My favorite art teacher was a professional portrait painter, and she would always say that charm is more important than realism in a portrait. Reflecting that your sitter has a wrinkle under her lip is not necessary. Showing her personality, and creating a compelling image, is.
I'm sort of surprised this is the official portrait. It's not very official-looking, and a little bit amateurish.
