Quick! Name the top 5 tasks waiting for you at the Gates of Hell:
- Scrubbing the toilet
- Cleaning out … and I mean really wiping down the nasty, unidentified oozings of … the refrigerator
- Perusing the aisles of an arts & crafts store
- Packing a suitcase
Believe it or not, these are my top 5. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I’d rather be ditch digging or embalming people or anything. It’s just that I’m talking about stuff that I actually have to do … all the time … that I HATE. The good news is that most of these bullets were dodged yesterday. Numbers one, two, three … all completely averted. Number four … well, it’s always there, hanging around my neck like a noose. Which leaves number five. Oh, how I hate you, number five. And yet somehow, for the first time ever, I managed to have a little fun with you yesterday.
My friend, Mel, and I are attending a conference in NYC in a week and thought it might be a good idea to start talking about what we should wear … and pack. (Sigh.) So, we got together yesterday … and I mean “virtually” because we live over 1,000 miles apart. (Go ahead. Call me a nerd now. Get it over with.)
“Yay, technology!” she cheered, pushing up the glasses on the bridge of her nose.
Naturally, we thought it was appropriate to record the whole thing online. For kicks. (Completely normal, right?) And we both learned a few things about each other as well as (hanging head in shame) ourselves in the whole humiliating process.
Have you ever seen TLC’s What Not To Wear? Yeah? Well, we could be their poster children. Click on the side-by-side picture below to see a video of two walking wardrobe malfunctions … live and in action.
P.S. Can someone please get me a Mucinex? This cold I’ve been fighting for over a week now has me sounding like Fran Freakin’ Drescher!
P.P.S. If you think Mel and I are the perfect combination of train wreck spazzery and hopeless comedy of errors for this contest, please let the good people at Microsoft know in the comments below. Don’t sit idly by when YOU can actually help clean up this mess.
P.P.P.S. (Holy crap, that’s three Ps.) Please tweet our buddy @KristinaLibby using the hashtag #windowstyle at Microsoft to tell her she needs to send help … and snacks … immediately!

Mel & Michele …
They’re magically delicious, recommended by four out of five dentists and so good, cats ask for them by name.
