The Tragic Optimist

So I got the skirt that I coveted (you have to scroll down to see the skirt). It arrived on Friday, and I wore it to work today. I’ve never gotten so many compliments on anything I’ve worn to work.

posing learned from watching America's Next Top Model.  I'm smiling with my eyes.

Of course, then I had to explain what the writing along the bottom was, and most people just kind of looked at me blankly as I told them about regular expressions.  Not that I use regular expressions at work very often – in fact I think I’ve only used them once, but still.  I love the skirt.
