Ok, I have decided that I really like dressing up... It all started a few years ago when our entire family went Amish at Halloween....Then, I had a costume Bunko party where I dressed in my robe, water balloons, knee-hi's and mud pack on my face (see my very first blog in archives)...Last year I was an Egyptian for VBS and then again for Halloween. It's fun to be somebody different for a while.
Today I dressed "Goth" for a meeting at Billy Miner's downtown. My Women In New Roles (www.tccd.edu/win-r) class has a network meeting there every second Saturday. Today's speaker was excellent. She talked about building bridges (relationships) through networking and how you should nurture and care for the "bridges" and not burn them!
Anyway, my instructor asked for volunteers to do a skit about what not to wear and how not to act on a job interview...I volunteered. My "act" was very monotone and morose. My previous job experience included night shift manager at "Tatoo You" tatoo shop and night cashier at "Goth 'R' uS". My reason for leaving these jobs was due to "a series of unfortunate events"....One of my favorite jobs was costume designer and prop mistress at the Goth Summer Stock Theatre. Our productions included Gothlahoma, The Sound of Goth, and everybody's favorite Gothspell. Unfortunately this job ended because the theatre mysteriously burned down. I have included a picture of some of the other participants...The pictures do not show the fishnet hose and platform boots. It was a lot of fun, but kind of wierd walking around downtown dressed like that. Preston and the kids went also, so it must have looked really weird with my 6'7" husband (dressed normally)holding my hand and my 3 sweet children following behind.
I don't know if I would have done this a few years ago....I've said it before...turning 40 does something to a gal!
