Quick, what do Angelina Jolie, thermal overalls, and my birthday have in common?


I promised last week I'd write about how much it angers me that quality workwear is so hard to find in small sizes.  I also mentioned my plan to launch a big bloggy birthday party for myself this month.  Then I got distracted by this movie.  

I don't even know if I'll go see it, to tell you the truth.  Other than the lovely scenery and stylish outfits to look at, it's not really my thing.  It's the Johnny factor that would change everything.  

Apparently he's a bumbling math teacher on vacation who gets tangled up with this scary skinny big-eyed woman.  I kind of think this movie sounds like a giant DUH.  I mean, we all know Johnny himself has a thing for scary skinny big-eyed women.  So this couldn't be a stretch.  

I bet shooting this one was like a vacation... hang around, do some acting and stuff, get all overwhelmed by the Jolie-Pitt Traveling Road Show. And then, show up at the premiere looking FANFRICKINGTASTIC!!!

The girls at Go Fug Yourself wrote the funniest bit about the premiere.  It cracked me up and you have to read it - there's a slide show and everything.  It's awesome.    They made up this thing with Angie ordering Brad around and Brad being a goofy himbo. At least I think they made it up. It's funny.  Just go read it.  Then come back.

I will have to special order overalls, you know that???  I can't get small or extra small overalls or coveralls in the store!  This is at TSC for cryin' out loud!  The girl at the cash register told me some brands don't even make a size small!  They only start at Medium!  What the hell???

I'm gonna say it again: women and children need good workwear too!  Snowsuits don't cut it!  They make swishy noises.  That is really irritating when cleaning stalls.  Irritating.  Not good.

Plus it'll look like BUTT.

Would Johnny wear a snowsuit to the barn?  Hardly.  Would Angie?  Hah.  She'd wear a black cashmere jumpsuit.

Actually she probably wouldn't.  She'd wear cruelty-free organic fabrics made domestically for fair wages.

So I don't know if I'll go see that movie.  I need to spend that cash on other things.  Having said that, I'd have to avoid movies for like, five years to equal up how much I'd have to spend to get special-order tiny coveralls.  GAAAAHHH!

Also I am turning 40 in a couple weeks.


You wanna join me for a bloggy birthday party?  Right here?  Tell all your friends and party crashers?

I'll settle a date soon.

Now I gotta put on my cheap and sub-optimal inadequate "ladies" coveralls and get a dump run into the truck.  Time to take out the trash.  haha.
