TORTURE!

At every phone call.

Because I am occasionally called upon to cover for the receptionist, I hear every phone call that comes into the office.

At every phone call I look to see the phone number and rush to compare it to my Realtor’s phone number so that I can pick it up first if it’s him.

I’m making myself sick.

So let’s talk about something else!

Yes, Hannah, we plan to come to SF for the APA. YAY! John and Naomi and the kids will most likely be there too. You can listen to John P try to convince John T to come back into the philosophical fold (which I can tell you ain’t likely to happen any time soon). We will probably only have the weekend, but we’ll try to make the most of it.

If anyone else would like to come to SF for the American Philosophical Association meeting, it is the weekend of April 7-8 (and the week before, but I won’t be there).

On the clothing search front: All of your advice? Equals rockin’ awesome.

However, I live in a small town. We have no mall. We have no real department stores. We DO have a Mervyn’s, a Gottschalks, and a WalMart. Can you please tell me how I am to find a beautiful, suitable outfit for the wedding in March at these three places.

I have tried searching online, I really have! I looked at Saks and Nordstrom and even Amazon online (as well as numerous other places I will never remember the names of because they had NOTHING. NOTHING!), but it goes about like this:

Wow.

Adorable!

What the fuck? Oh. It only costs $16.95. Wait…what? That’s $1,695.00? I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

And this one too? What the hell is Donna Karen smoking? ‘Cause I don’t want ANY.

And overall: Not really appropriate; and I think I could afford a hem. Or maybe a strap.

So I’m still at a loss. I know what I’m looking for now, but I can’t find it anywhere. Does anyone care to share their secret “Gettin’ Places”? March is coming up fast!

There. That did take my mind off for a second. Thanks guys.

    Ooooh! I’m really, really no help in the clothes department, but I do like that second one.

    Yes, we will most certainly be at the APA–reminds me that I need to get our rooms reserved and all of that. Do you guys know where you’ll be staying? The kids and I will be hitting the zoo and stuff and would love to have you and Cole (and Em and Spencer and anyone else) along!
