new high

Or I mean, I suppose you could call it a new low. I'm not positive, but it feels even hotter today than it did yesterday! To get an idea, take a look at this photo

First, note the sad look in my eyes - that would be from standing in the heat. Second, do you detect an odd, cloudy film on the photo? Yeah. That would be the fog on the lenses. How do you know when it's too humid outside? When your camera lenses fog up the second you dare take a step out of the AC.

Ok, beyond complaining about the heat, here is a funny little anecdote from my internship today. I was sitting at the computer, working on an itinerary for a group coming in from Belarus next week, stretching out my legs under the desk, when all of a sudden my screen went black. What just happened? When did I last save my work? Basically, I'm freaking out. I look under the desk, and what do I see? A power strip, which I just flipped off with my toe. Swearing silently under my breath, I turn in back on and pray it wasn't controlling the power of any other computers in the room (it wasn't). Oh, and I had saved my work fairly recently. Just another example of my complete and utter klutziness you have all come to know in the history of reading my blog (broken foot while sledding anyone?)

 flea market pendant
vintage top
 gap jeans

What is going on with the lighting on my camera recently? I had the same complaint yesterday, that somehow the color of my shirt was flushed out. As you can see from the detail shot above, my shirt is a light cream with these adorable embroidery details around the top. However in the full-body shots it just looks like a plain white tshirt. What am I going to do with myself?
And oh, by the way, I really like this pendant. If you look closely you can see it says Spelling and has a little Websters dictionary on it. How cute is that? And the bronze just goes so nicely with the cream top. A good $1 find at the flea market, don't you think?

Now, I need to somehow force myself to eat some food before I head out to Old Navy training, part 2, (how much training do you need to work in retail? Apparently a lot), despite the fact that I just ate a late lunch about an hour ago. Sigh. But if I don't, I will probably drop dead before they let us out at 10! I'm just hoping that this training is more hands-on and less paperwork, I've already spent too much time at a desk today. Oh well, hope you all had a lovely Tuesday safe from the heat!

P.S. I almost forgot! Superrr awkward story about this top. So when I got it at that vintage store I was talking about last week, they only had one dressing room, so when I was about to go in with half a dozen or so items they asked if I would let a woman who only had one skirt to try on go before me. My stuff was already in the room, but I said sure and let her go in. About 20 minutes or so later (how long does it take to try on one skirt?!) she came out and I went into the room. And noticed that the cream top I loved so much was gone. Really? Really?? I sneaked back out into the store and noticed it in her pile of stuff. You have got to be kidding me. First she takes my room, and then my clothing? I politely told the saleswoman that I believed that the other woman had taken something from my dressing room and she, appropriately flustered, got it back for me. When I came out of the dressing room the woman asked if I was planning on buying it and when I said yes she looked a little put out. Hah. That's what you get... That's all :)
