You reminded me of this:

I only wear makeup when I'm pretending to be a man. I am glad I don't work at American Eagle because that would be awkward, probably.

Let me briefly vent about how annoying it is to be in a car accident that was not your fault and to have your car in the shop for over a month and for you, a fitness nut who works out 5-7 days a week, to have to go to months of therapy for a fucked up back and neck, the time period during which you are also forbidden from lifting anything heavy or running.

I totally forgot to add the legit "rant" part which is:

I can't find any god damn animal masks that isn't that damn horse one you see on the internet everywhere. You know what I'm talking about.

DAMN.

I just typed rubber animal mask into ebay and found loads. Decent ones that aren't horse heads are a bit pricey.

EDIT: GOOD LORD WHAT IS THAT!

It isn't. That's the point.

Even if she was fat it still would not be okay.

There isn't enough sever space on CosCom for me to even begin to touch on this subject.

One reason why I want to avoid corporate workplaces is sexist dress codes- Women have to wear makeup, but men are allowed to get away with having skin like saddle leather. Screw that, it's a sexist expectation. (I have nothing against women who like to wear makeup, but it should be a choice, dammit)

Other places require skirts for women, again, I refuse. A skirt long enough to cover my legs and still be considered a "professional" style would most likely be bad for mobility- tight and constraining. I'm guessing voluminous, loose skirts would be frowned on in such conservative, old fashioned environments. And as for shorter skirts, why the hell should I be obliged to show my legs to anyone if I don't want to? That, and shorter skirts require pantyhose, I HATE pantyhose!

Agreed. XD I could not work somewhere that required me to wear a skirt unless it was literally the only job I could get. I only wear skirts/dresses for cosplay and choir concerts, though I find them very uncomfortable and too revealing for my taste in clothes. ^^; Especially considering that most of the skirts one could find for my age group only go down to the mid-thigh. o^o I don't see why woman can't wear dress slacks if they have a formal job. It's not like I have anything against uniforms with skirts, I just don't like not having another option for the people who don't like wearing skirts.

Find a Macy's, go to their suit department, (esp look for their lovely clearance racks because when they move lines along you can get some good quality pieces for about 75% off) You *can* find good, professional pantsuits or better quality skirts that are not tight & short if that is the clothing needed.

I have worked in the DC area for... well. A long time. I have worn a lotta "professional clothing" and not once did anyone ever say I couldn't wear pants. However, I'm now working for a small private company where I can wear nice jeans about 95% of the time and I have to say I'm loving that. I've seen more people run into trouble with tops than pants/skirts.

I must rant about shoes though. finding good quality COMFORTABLE dressy shoes annoys me to no end. Why must women's shoes be so ridiculous?

Augh, physio. My mom's a retired physiotherapist and most of her patients were involved in vehicle accidents. I hope you recover quickly.

I've got a six-week no-lifting, low-exercise sentence as well and I'm getting annoyed at how weak I feel these days, but it can't be helped. I had sore glutes from climbing stairs in my house the other day, what the heck. So out of shape ;_;

If target required me to wear make I'd have been fired my first opening shift.


Rant:
My aunts boyfriend cleared their car off. All over the nice clear path my gf shoveled me to the trash bins.
I'm so very tempted to shovel it BACK on to their car.

Actually, I'd shovel it IN their car...

Somedays I'll put on makeup even if I am not going anywhere. Then prance around feeling like a pretty princess. Other-times I shave one armpit and don't feel like doing the other. Like I'll get really super into shaving and do an amazing job and I am blown away by the smoothness of my skin after shaving but then I have to do the other half and realizing that I have to double my efforts to finish properly just overwhelms me.

I hope no stores have an 'evenly shaved appendages' rule because I am never getting a job if that's the case.
