FINALLY!

So I screamed and yelled and cried to the universe and it answered.

I am taking a job with Almighty, a small web development firm. I'm going to be their "office concierge." Which basically means that I am going to be the "Joan Holloway" (Mad Men red head) of the office. It's not my ideal perfect awesome job, but it's so much better than what I'm doing now. A real job with things like health, dental and vision benefits, sick days and paid vacation. A real adult style job.

I'll be working 9-5 again, which means early mornings, but at least I'll have weekends free! The office is in Allston, on Western Ave, so my commute is actually really short, just the redline one stop and the 86 bus for about 15 minutes. It'll be even shorter when it gets warm enough to take my bike! And it is in close proximity to my Allston friends so I'll get to see more of them.

Yay! http://www.bealmighty.com/

Also, none of this could have been possible without the help of Emma, Anne and Mike Ruby... it just proves you gots ta have fwiends!!!

Oh and if anyone has any business casual type clothes that they aren't using that would fit me... lemme know! I need a whole new wardrobe.

I've found Mad Men style office clothes in some unlikely places and at decent prices (ping me for more info). I've been building my own Joan wardrobe since last summer. :) It helps that these styles are coming back into fashion, thanks to the success of the show.

Gratz! And I can't wait to see you in Mad Men drag, with A-line skirt and pillbox hat. Don't forget the white gloves!

What sizes are you looking for? I have some stuff from when I was thinner that I probably won't be able to wear again. Nothing fancy, just normal work drag, black pants an infinitum.

Not sure I have much in that range, but I'll take a look. Like I said, it wouldn't be anything cool.

HOORAY! CONGRATS!

I have nothing Joan Holloway-esque but I have lots of size 8-10 (mostly 10) boring work wear that you're welcome to sift through.
