ABOUT ME

About me: My husband Chuck, our six-year-old Junior, our three-year-old Everette and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

The proof is in the...antlers

Fine, fine, I tried to gloss over the whole reindeer thing. I thought Rico would keep your minds occupied. Lord knows he's alive and well in mine.

Sigh. You want pictures? Here:



It's the photo we had taken for the office holiday card. I'd show you my face, but I'd like to retain some of my dignity.

The card is the pre-cursor to the office holiday party next week for which it has been suggested (i.e., mandated) that we wear red sweaters, brown skirts and "sexy" reindeer boots (this is from a boss who made me wear her hooker heels, remember?) to accompany our antlers and red noses...

I sent the photo to my friend. This is what she wrote:

"It's sad and funny at the same time."

I love getting kicked when I'm down. On all fours.

wtf is a "sexy reindeer boot"??

I mean...I'm not exactly up on my haute couture, but that's a new one on me...

Also, your friend is a true friend. Or even if she isn't, she's at least RIGHT.

Awesome..just awesome. So, yah, where do you find sexy reindeer boots? Not to be confused with like casual reindeer boots or "out running Santa's errands" reindeer boots...

I don't know whether to laugh or to ask if this is for reals... (I'm goin' with the belly laugh). Girl, you are hilarious!

I never thought I'd see the words sexy and reindeer in the same sentence, but here we are. I'm as curious as everyone else as to what the H "sexy reindeer boots" are?

Check out my pic. Some of us LOVE our reindeer antlers! SOME of us wear them with PRIDE!!!!

Sexy reindeer boots was her cute way of telling us she wants us to wear those boots that come up to the knee. I'm gonna be a sizzlin' Rudolph (though not by choice...).

I would love to have seen the whole face, but I can understand wanting to maintain some anonymity (I gave up all shame long ago, now I just hope I don't say anything nasty about anyone in the small town who actually reads my blog).

I hope we will get to see photos of the sexy reindeer boots.

I promise I will take pictures of my sexy reindeer boots. I can't believe Victoria's Secret hasn't caught on yet.

Are there children at your place of occupation? That is the only reason I can think of to add antlers to your look. Although, since it was suggested by boss lady hooker heels I should not be surprised.
