Thanks. I'll keep my eye out for some tailored ones. Some of the sheaths out there right now are super nice.

We're more casual here for every day, but not for interviewing or meetings with clients and top executives. My target industries are conservative too.

Glad you're enjoying yourself! Keep on partying!

I mentioned this on another thread, but I have to vent:

We were robbed a couple of nights ago. We live in one of two very exclusive neighborhoods in this town, so this is kinda shocking. Someone broke in my car and stole the GPS (which was 4 years old and not worth much) and stole the lawn mower. The GPS I don't care about so much but it was a good lawn mower and we need it. I am thankful they didn't steal my car.

My car was locked, BTW. I always, always, always lock my car. The cop didn't believe me, I could tell.

Now I am kinda scared to sleep at night. DH has been out of the country for work, so it's scary by myself (well, with the kids).

That's why I'm here posting on CD instead of going to bed.
Nothing good on TV.

Can someone recommend a fantastic book?

we went downtown to the Spaghetti Factory. I didn't realize it is mostly a west coast chain. Neat old building.

Rkb - party hearty!

Calgirl - sorry, that sucks. Do you have a dog? If not borrow one for a few nights, they are a great deterrent.

Morning, folks!

calgirl - so sorry to hear about the break in! I second the dog idea - ours sound like they'd rip your leg off, but most likely they'd just lick someone to death if god forbid anyone tried to get in the house!

What do you like to read? If you're looking for some escapism fiction, Neil Gaiman is a favorite of mine - alternate worlds, kind of a dark sense of humor. In the land of nonfiction, I've been reading my way through presidential biographies (because I'm that kind of dork) - I highly recommend the series on TR by Edmund Morris.

Morning!

Everyone have fun/interesting plans for the day?

Hope Calgirl got some sleep last night.

FR - so now I've caught up with all the Masterchef episodes.....I'm finding it hard to stay as focused on what's happening as I do Top Chef...but it is interesting for sure. And yes, the 18 yo freshman - pfft. What an arrogant little snot. Same with Suzy. She does seem to have the chops but she needs to be knocked down a peg or two.
