Dork-o-Rama: The Random Thoughts of a Total Goofball

Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

Of COURSE...

It's been a weird couple of days. Busy busy busy, with little to show for all that busy-ness. Had to go to a long meeting yesterday, which kept me from getting some things done. Woke up early today and couldn't get back to sleep, so I've been dragging all day.

But I got a couple of really great pieces of news late in the day, including a nod from a Very Important Person. Seems I've finally made a good impression on said VIP. And the other great piece of news pleased this person. Greatly*. So the day ended on a high note. Yay!

Then I get home and see that I had a small piece of spinach stuck in my teeth when I talked to said VIP.

Thanks a bunch**, universe...


*how many times can I use "great" in one post?
**just not a bunch of spinach, please.

Maybe you didn't say anything that would have made your lips reveal the offensive spinach.

Well if you can impress the VIP with veggies in your grille, then you're doing well.

actually, pirate, the good impression was made before today. the spinach grille was the universe's way of fucking with me...

Dontcha have a compact or somethign with a mirror in it to check to see if you have any leftovers on your teeth?

One should always be prepared ya know....

Ok, but were you wearing anything else green? Because if the spinach matched let's say your purse, then everything's gonna be ok.

Maybe what you said was good enough that the spinach didn't matter :)

Yaay for you.

Hi T,

I'm with BP. Don't sweat it.

Considering the various other objects I've seen people permanently insert in their various labia (both above and below) a piece of spinach doesn't even disturb the embarrassometer.

XOXO

Why oh why don't people tell each other when they have crap stuck to their teeth??? I do and whiel a few may find that crossing the line of decorum, most are grateful for my honesty! Damn the world of social etiquette!! I hope you had a great day anyway.

At least spinach is delicious.

savage, i do... but i don't really sit here checking out my teeth all that often.

and i usually brush my teeth after lunch, but i got so busy, i must have forgotten.

love monkey, sadly... no. i was wearing teal, but that doesn't quite work. dammit.

nat, i like that theory. i'm going with it!

pirate, i'm not sure anyone but me would have known that was spinach. it just looked like green crud. only i know i had a spinach salad...

chuck....nice use of the word labia here...!

in hawaiian, that's lehelehe. or lehulehu. now i can't remember. crap, i need to study...

reg, i always appreciate it when someone tells me something like that! nothing worse than walking around with your skirt tucked into your panties. for instance.

natalie, it was delicious, that's true!


and honestly, i'm more amused by this than disgusted. still...

That's what you get for eating so damn healthy.

I think it sucks that nobody would tell you.

Oh man, that is sooo something that would happen to me. Good Lord.

 
At 09 March, 2007 07:28, Blogger April said...

oh, i've done that! there's such a feeling of embarrassment when you get home and see it...

 
At 09 March, 2007 09:49, Blogger cadbury_vw said...

if the VIP is the sort of person who wouldn't just remember the last time it happened to them...

well, then having impressed them in the first place won't last long.

if they are decent people - it won't matter

 
At 09 March, 2007 13:42, Blogger terry said...

jon, i don't eat so healhfully all the time... or even most of the time.

blondie, i think we've all been there!

april, i was horrified and amused at the same time.

cad, it's clear to all who know me that i am a dork, so there's no point in even trying to change anyone's perception.

great post about great news!!

Fucking spinach.

I bet VIP didn't notice anything at all. It would be just like the fucking universe to make you worry about nothing. Here's to invisible spinach!

I waited until AFTER I commented to read the OTHER comments, and now I have to comment AGAIN.

You were speaking of ME when you talked about having your skirt tucked into your panties. I had my skirt in my fucking pantyhose at a HUGE conference. No one told me. Fifty million chicks in the bathroom, and every one of them let me walk OUT with my ass showing.

 
At 10 March, 2007 09:44, Blogger terry said...

oh, great dzer, it's so great to see you!

buddha girl, i would TOTALLY tell you if youe skirt was all akimbo. i can't BELIEVE no one else did...!
