Fourth of July brainstorms

I'm back from the Viet Wah with Mansticks Mannikins Manacles Manticores - whatever, little chicken things - and some eggs so I can make devilled eggs again. Boo wants to get in on the fun - she brought a smallish rat in, presumably for some grillin' action. But we have a firm rule around here: No Meat What Is Still Squeaking, so I took it back outside and hoped (though I wish all the rats that live in the ivy dead, in a friendly way) that it wasn't too injured to make it. If nothing else, I gave it a more pleasant end than Boo was planning. Bad Old Puddy Tat (though I'm actually very proud of her, fat old teeny useless Persian that she is).

I also made it to the Talbots at Southcenter mall. The entire trip was a wallet-cleaning shopping festival, no thanks at all to the endless racks of crap Macy's stocks. Target spit in my linen-seeking eye but produced a pair of cowgirl jammies that aren't the tiniest bit sexy but are awfully cute and a work-suitable white shirt; some random salon coughed up the conditioner I've been looking for; and Talbots kindly yielded a 10 gore, black linen skirt as well as the nice three-quarter sleeved shirt I originally went there for. Sadly, the pants that matched were nowhere to be found in the Seattle metropolitan area. I picked up a just-above-the-ankle pair, thinking I could either wear them with a very pointy pair of shoes and try to look extremely styley, or return them as a hopeless experiment (they were a bit much for just casual wear). I've definitely got what I need for my days in the London office, but I'm still not sure if I have what I want for the interview.

That said, I beg for your highly important feedback! And while you're filling this out, I'm going to give the cat some canned food - as, obviously, she needs more protein in her diet - and then I will garden for about half an hour.

I stand by my earlier comments on interview attire.

One idea on hair: try colored black hairspray over the red. It would probably cover it, and it washes out in one thorough shampoo. Sold in costume shops. (Try it at home first!)
