the secret to every successful woman: silky panties

Speaking Chic to Power - New York Times

in addition to my brown silky bikini panties, i'm also wearing a matching lacy brown bra underneath a sheer silk blouse, which is underneath a black nipped in blazer on top of a crisp pair of black boot cut trousers. on my feet, a pair of black/white plaid, kitten heel flats with a scarlet rhinestone buckle. (it seems gaudy, but you have to see these shoes - they're cute as hell.)

and what did i have to do today (nay, this week)?
plan/organize a board meeting for this morning, take minutes, manage the board members and CEO, set up/break down; juggle various presentations, senior managers, consultants, vendors, logistics, agendas, materials for a staff retreat; remain cheerful, supportive and efficient; take my knocks and step up when things didn't go as planned, much to my CEO's displeasure, and basically make sure that everything, by hell or high water, got frakking done for 150 people tomorrow (for whom i will be up at the crack of dawn again, onsite, helping the facilitation team, getting our bill paid and smoothing over whatever gaps/cracks appear over the course of one very long, arduous day.)

what do my panties have to do with that?

My panties are boxers.

my panties have EVERYTHING to do with what i accomplish daily. that they apparently have nothing to do with your daily accomplishments is nothing short of travesty. you, my dear, have made victoria weep!

for shame, i say!

i wonder what panties george bush wears? of course, as the media machine gears up against barack obama, i'm sure we'll soon find out if he's a tighty whitie or boxer kind of guy.

i'd say it's less the panties and more the bra. wear a good bra and your day will be a stupendous. wear a bad bra and your day will suck.

(which must explain my headache right now. bad bra.)

Good question. He was a cheerleader, after all. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

ding said...

of course not.
some of our best men were, uh, cheerleaders.

(i think gerald ford was a cheerleader, right?)

According to Ask Yahoo, Bush, Ronald Reagan, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Franklin D. Roosevelt have been the only Presidential cheerleaders. No word on how many Presidents besides Bush have done lines of coke.

there should be an alternate history of the presidents written: drugs, sex, mental issues, who was a cheerleader, who liked to play with toy trains all day, etc.

all should be fodder for this new historiography. it would throw their years of power into true relief. "abraham lincoln saved the Union yet also liked to talk to the animals and play checkers nude." how excellent that would be.
