How Dumb Can I Look?

I laid down on the floor and the puppy and kitty decided I was a nice place to rest.

OK, so I post this because you would not believe I got those sweet, hip, ZEBRA-STRIPED, low-rise skinny jeans at Wrangler! Something about being in another country opens your mind, even to retail experiences.

We saw a Wrangler store in a local upscale mall (Unicenter) and went in out of curiosity. Let me tell you what, this is not your cowboy's Wrangler! They have some pretty cool stuff these days.

I ended up buying these jeans and a great featherweight knit dark-purple-and-black-striped long sleeve that I wear all the time!

And this pic I post just cuz honestly, how dumb can I look? This was after Embassy 4th-of-July partying (on the 3rd) till all hours, waking up at 7:30 a.m. for horsebackriding, a few hours of nap and then another 4th of July party. With the same asymmetrical chignon hairstyle. I promise it looked cool in real life! And all the bobby pins helped it last 18 hours.

P.s. do you love my Casio watch? I got desperate; with one nice watch that broke in 2004 that I carry around in my purse to one day take to get fixed, and a new watch Neil ordered eons ago that hasn't arrived yet. Anyway ...

The flowers were given to me to take home as we dismantled the Embassy party decorations. These and other gorgeous arrangements of roses, orchids, etc. were all over the palace, it was beautiful! Unlike my face paint!

The arrangements were huge!

I remember! this was my question....Which track do I want to pursue? Management Officers, Economic officers,Public Diplomacy Officers, political officers, Consular officers.....public diplomacy officer sounds most interesting and consular office is second.
