X + Y + Z = I'm a rock star

Confession: I have boots that I like more than some people. And before you judge me, let’s talk about the boots. They have a bit of an elevated sole, are coal black and are soft suede. They zip up to my knee and do everything you wish magic boots could do. I mean, Cinderella wishes she had shoes like this. When I wear them my legs look longer, I feel three feet taller and suddenly everything I say becomes witty, important and/or insanely insightful. In these boots I’m pretty sure I could keep my own with Stephen Hawking, they are just that great. I’m guaranteed a sigh of happiness every time I look down. They look perfect with skirts, dresses or jeans and I’m pretty sure they would even complement a wedding dress. In short, they are perfect. They are the George Clooney of my shoe collection.

I’m wearing them today, thus- boots are: X

Confession: For me, good hair days are better than Prozac. I’m not talking about the manageable good hair day, or the one that becomes good after 10 minutes of straightening/curling/pleading/blowdrying/concocting a recipe of gel,mouse and/or hairspray- I’m talking about the good hair that just starts out awesome. The one where you wake up and you think, ‘what the hell?! Is this really my hair? God does love me!” sort of hair day that prompts you to run all your errands you put off just so you can hopefully run into people. The sort of hair day I imagine Reese Witherspoon wakes up everyday having and that Britney won’t ever again. This hair day happened to me today. It’s shiny, with volume and it just feels longer today (and having it feel long is an important part of it looking great). I suspect it’s not likely to happen again before 2012 so I’m considering going to get head shots taken at Sears.

Anyway, fantastic hair day is: Y

Confession: “Irreplaceable” is on my ipod and I love it. (This is where the word ‘confession’ actually becomes relevant). I’m pretty sure when I sing along I sound even better than Beyonce and that I become the first person on the face of the Earth who actually looks cool singing with their eyes closed. Seriously. I don’t know what it is about that song but I could listen to it all the time.

Feeling like I could win a Grammy with todays sing-a-long: Z

Today I found myself coming out of the photocopy room at work wearing my boots with the shiny hair when the Z song came on my ipod. I didn’t walk down the hall way- I strutted through the gaggles of college girls and boys, like a rock star without the drug addiction or entourage. I assume the students who stared were looking at my great hair, although in hindsight maybe it was because I was singing out loud.

Spring may not be outside, but today it’s in my step.

Damn, I wish I was having that great of a day! Maybe on Saturday...I'm going to go for a Reese Witherspoon look at the salon. Wish me luck!

Kathryn said...

fabulous mental movie - thanks!

Dang! That day is pretty much equal with my "Doesn't my butt look great in these? Oh did I mention they were a full size smaller than I normally wear?" pants and cheap but adorable black spiked heels!

"The sort of hair day I imagine Reese Witherspoon wakes up everyday having and that Britney won’t ever again."

One-liners like that are so worth subscribing to updates on this blog. Thanks for the laugh! :P

I agree with Aaron!

Congrats to you on such a fabulous day! What are you doing tonight to celebrate?

Days like that are the best! Good for you!
I have to admit that I like "Irreplaceable" as well. It's very catchy. And I have been known to sing it loudly. In my car. With the windows down. Until people start to stare. But I'm sure that they are just staring because they think that I could be the next American Idol. Um...yeah, that's it...

As much attention as I get for listening to my ipod curled up in my office, I can't imagine walking around with my earphones in. The upside of not being able to do so is that no one has the displeasure of hearing me sing along with the Fray.

Great post:) I'm glad you're having a wonderful day.

I completely relate to the boots thing. And if equations had been more like this at school, I would've stuck with Math x

Every girl should have a pair of "IT" shoes/ george clooney shoes.

Jennifer- I wish you luck. Because good hair days shouldn't just be enjoyed by the famous. Man, I feel a manifesto coming on...

Aaron- I'm glad you appreciate the Britney reference. My friends are threatening to disown me if I continue but like, I feel there's just so much gold there..

Bre- Ahh, the black spiky shoe. I like to think of them as the Hugh Jackman of my shoe collection. I love them, but they aren't as practical as the George's. (the accent/spike get in the way). But I'm glad you relate!

Brookem- Sadly I celebrated by watching "Ghostrider". I know, how did I think Nicholas Cage was going to IMPROVE my day?? I didn't like the movie.

Pink lace and pearls- I'm glad I'm not alone!!

Ally- Yeah, the earphones thing made me self conscious at first but I work at a college, look like I'm IN college and spend 99.9% of my time in my cell/office so it seemed silly to take them out for my sprint to photocopier...

Ruby said...

Now that is a fabulous day!

I love this post. I smiled just reading it... sometimes it is just your day. And could I PLEASE wake up just ONCE and not have to engage in WWIII with my hair?!
