eye candy friday -- string section

I am seriously running low on eye candy but don't want to miss posting because it's nice to build some consistency somewhere.

This week has been crazy busy, 12+ hour work days, a doctor's visit that reminded me why I'm so grateful to have a full-time gig in the first place (health insurance, anyone?), an appointment with my aesthetician that required a harrowing 11th hour drive from work to The Valley to get my face de-furred. No way was I going to France with my father's eyebrows.

Here I am, oh, say, 7 hours from taking off for another continent and I haven't packed a thing. I kid you not. My suitcases are still stored in the trunk of my car. This morning I got myself hopped up on coffee so I could proctor a 7:30am exam and now I'm so damn exhausted that the very concept of coffee is a slap in the face. I want only sleep.

Okay. Somebody help me. I'm watching this "October Road" show on TV and the main character, a famous novelist who looks like if he does type, he does it with his toes, wants a job at his alma mater so now he's serenading the dean. Naturally, it's the way to go. She hires him. These TV shows are so steeply based in life on this planet.

Anyhow. I've got to get busy pulling some strength out of my ass. I'll be back next Friday with new *French!* eye candy and a fun tale or two.

(Kellz, I'm good for that tote bag as soon as I return.)

hee-hee. Goin' t' France with yer father's eyebrows. :) I guess that would be better than going with, oh, I dunno, Brittney Spears. (I just keep seeing your father's eyebrows on the plane seat next to you...)
