Meeting the Fashion Police

Happy Wednesday!  I've been working from home this week, since our office is being used for something else, which has allowed me to get errands done in the morning after traffic dies down.  The downside to working at home?  No one actually believes I'm working.  It's also really easy to get distracted by snacks and TV and my new book and errands and... yeah.  Regardless, I've gotten all my work done so far.

The best part of my week was actually Monday!  If you follow me on social media, you know I met Joan Rivers!  If you don't, then, well... I met Joan Rivers!  To make a long and very it's-all-about-who-you-know story short, I was lucky enough to get invited along to a private reception with my roommate and her coworker where Joan herself was having a book signing.  Her book, "I Hate Everyone, Starting With Me," is hilarious.  I suggest you grab it for a fun read at the beach or pool, for when you need a break from the practically pornographic chapters in the Fifty Shades of Grey obsession.

Look at those sleeves!
In addition to the excitement of meeting a celebrity, did I mention that the reception had appetizers and wine? It was probably pretty obvious that we were rookies at events like that... what with befriending the girl in charge of pouring white wine and the man with the portabello flat bread.  You think I'm exaggerating, but I'm not... Wine Woman must have been really desperate to leave her shift, because at one point she just emptied half a bottle of wine into our glasses, filling them way past the "casual drink at a 6pm party" point.  Maybe we weren't actually supposed to eat the food?  I've been craving those little fried chicken bites ever since though. 

Even if your Monday wasn't as fabulous as mine, I hope your week has been great!
