I've got another job interview on Wednesday, this time at The Limited. The job I applied for is floorset, which works after hours. However, it turns out that gig only works for about 8 hours every two weeks. The lady I spoke with asked if I'd like to be considered for floor associate, too.


Just don't hold it against me that I can't fit into any of the clothes you sell.

It's also going to be a group interview. The lady I spoke with said there'd be about four other girls interviewing with me.

This is going to be fun.

I might not get this job, but I'm going to have a good time trying. I can already tell.

So I have a job interview on Monday. It's for a gig working in the office of a transportation company here in town. Living in the middle of nowhere, it's hard to find a gig with minimal commute time, but this is a good shot.

I do have one problem, though. Because of that despicable weight gain last year and my inability to lose much of it, I'm not sure I have any nice pants that fit. To be fair, I don't typically dress well to sit in front of my computer and pound out stories (while running my mouth on Twitter and playing games on Facebook) so I can't say for sure whether or not they all don't fit. But I'll be surprised if any of them do.

*sighs* My butt really needs to get smaller. I wish it wasn't so resistent to all of the exercising and vegetables.

I had to go out today to do an errand that I've been putting off because I just couldn't put it off any longer. And, of course, it had to been when the high temperature was 17 degrees. That's what you get for procrastinating.

But, it wasn't too bad. By the time I got home, I was good with getting out of the car without my gloves.

It's weather like this that really brings out the personalities of the people in my town.

Leaving Walmart, I saw a lady bundled up, waddling across the parking lot. For the most part, her coat and hat and gloves matched (red and tan), but she was wearing a lime green scarf. Best part about it? It was wrapped around her neck at least twice and still reached her knees. It was like a knitted anaconda trying to bring her down. It was fantastic.

And then I saw a guy wearing a t-shirt and no coat walking across the parking lot. Clearly, what's chilly to some is balmy to others.

I really need some money for a new wardrobe. It's not a girly thing. It's just that every few years I look at my clothes and think, "I'd rather wear something else". So I buy some new things.

Unfortunately, I'm at that time and don't have the money to buy new things.

This does not stop me, however, from wishlist shopping at Torrid.com.

It does make the longing worse, though.

Two that I can think of off of the top of my head:

Words written on the butt of your pants. Unless you are a professional wrestler or a billboard, this should not be happening.

Stripper platforms. They don't even look good on the street corner anymore.

I'm on the fence about leggings simply because some people can work them. I think there should definitely be restrictions on them, though.

I love gift cards. I got several of them for Christmas and one for my birthday (after the FedEx guy finally delivered it and Carrie found where he hid it...ass). And much to Carrie's ire, I can use all of them online with the exception of the food ones, because for whatever reason, Cold Stone won't mail me ice cream.

Anyway, one of my gift cards is for Hot Topic and I haven't been to the site in ages. I decided to go looking around for goodies I'd like to own. The clothing is too teenybopper goth for my non-existant style (I'm currently sporting my Camp Crystal Lake ringer tee and green army issue camo pants and not just because I did laundry today), but OMG! PLUSHIES! PINS! HATS I'LL NEVER WEAR!

And then I checked out the shoes. Call it morbid curiosity since Carrie says my shoe collection is horribly lacking. Now, I know Hot Topic is a popular place for people to shop, so this only leads me to one conclusion:

The girls buying boots at Hot Topic are either walking around looking like hookers circa 1985 or like they've just come from Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake's garage sale. Which I suppose is fine if you want to look like you'll have sex for money or like to give people flying elbows from the top rope.

I think there's some truth to the whole "ignorance is bliss" thing because I would imagine if I were more educated in fashion, I'd weep. But, since I'm just a different variety of fashion victim, I can only point and laugh and hitch up my camo pants.
