Cardigan: J.Crew Jackie in Pearl
Top: Banana Republic
Skirt: J.Jill
Shoes: Cole Haan
Earrings: made by me even though you can't see them (grey pearl with a little faceted slice of aquamarine)

This is as close to a monkey suit as it normally gets. We had a honchos meeting today, it was still a bit on the hot side, so I opted for the same Banana Republic top I've been pimping (since 2008 apparently):

banana republic lace-edged top

I wear a camisole under it, but that doesn't detract from the lovely lace design (it's quite a bit prettier in real life).

What am I doing at work? Something interesting, spliced with the usual breakneck's like that every year. There's no other way to do it, because when we're open in summer, that's all we do, and we can't upgrade stuff while it's being used. After we close, we fix the stuff we wanted to fix during the summer. Actually it's gotten a bit worse because of the recession—we can't hire extra seasonal help, so our programs have to target whoever is being sandbagged the most.

I was pleased with the honchos meeting though, in the sense of walking away with only four things to do. That means my programs are working. The four could be potentially grueling though I suspect it involves a single giant file. shrugs One is less grueling but more exacting, since it has to work perfectly to avoid a deluge of international student visa-related complaints (most of which would fall on a different department). The remaining two should be reasonably simple, and just need to be done well.

* Grytpype-Thynne: 100 pounds.
Seagoon: How much do you want for them?
Grytpype-Thynne: 100- Aha. Take your earplugs out.
Seagoon: Why don't you answer? I asked you, how much do you want for them?
Grytpype-Thynne: 100 pounds!
Seagoon: That's funny. I can't hear him.
Grytpype-Thynne: They cost 100- Look, take out the earplugs.
Seagoon: Stop all that silly miming, man! How much?
Grytpype-Thynne: 100 pounds!
Seagoon: I've had enough of this, Bloodnok. He obviously doesn't want to do business. Come on, get out, get out! Get out! You steaming English idiot.
Grytpype-Thynne: No, no, no! Look here-
[door slams]
Seagoon: 100 pounds for earplugs we can hear through? Ha, ha, ha, ha! Ha, ha! Not likely!
