Ugly Day

February 10, 2009

I'd like to let the entire world know that I'm having one of those days wherein a big, slimy piece of poo looks a whole lot cuter than I do. Honestly, that woman who works down the hall from me--the state employee with the yellow-tinted glasses that happen to be the size of dinner plates?

The one who likes to pair a long, flowered skirt with rubber mary-janes and athletic ankle socks every single day?

The one who chain smokes in the front seat of her 1991 Chevy Caprice through the entirety of her lunch break?

The one who still uses scrunchies?

Don't mess with me here--if you've ever had a job anywhere in the United States of America, then you know damn well who I'm talking about.

She looks better than I do today. Way, way better.

Is anyone else experiencing a major ugly day today?

I'm to the point where if I can make it out of the house with my clothing on all the way, it's a good day. Grooming? I wish.

Charlotte said...

Ha. I can name 3 separate people who fit your description to a T.

I haven't looked in a mirror yet (it's only 9am for pete's sake) but I can smell myself, and it ain't pretty. Does that count for an ugly day?

elesa said...

I don't know what you're talking about. Scrunchies are still way cute.

Karen said...

I go along with Tanwon. I'm lucky to get out of the house all dressed. And Hubby has to be reminded regularly to put in his teeth.

Not having an ugly day, just a fat day. To soothe myself I will now go and have a cupcake.

I see your ugly day, and raise you a PMS-ing, acne-sporting, cry-your-head-off-for-no-reason, looks like an ugly monster and a weirdo freak bore a child. And that child is me.

So there.

RazZDoodle said...

Ha ha! You're ugly today!

Gotta go...my GQ shoot is in 10 minutes.

Vanilla said...

I'm not buying it. Someone on one of our podcast reviews said that they'd met you and that you were smoking hot. I remember it because now I'm worried that I'm only the sexiest person on the podcast by a slim margin.

Katy said...

I believe you, Amy. We both have those days. Part of our DNA (that we did not get from Mom- so don't stress, Mom).

Wear a hat, get home quick, go to bed, and wake up to the sweet comfort of all that Mary Kay we just dropped a ton of cash on.

I have my hair back in a elastic and a headband b/c it is so frighting. I was running late for a meeting and didn't have time to wash it.

Yes, I could have gotten up earlier, but I just couldn't deal with the world that early.

Hurricanehol said...

I was all with ya until you mentioned scruchies....

Mindy said...

My hair is, but my face is experiencing a zit-free day... hallelujah!

Brad and Rebecca said...

i am having like THE WORST ugly day myself.

Kim Raynor said...

I was having a normal day until I had ugly-cry day in the ladies room 15 minutes after arriving at work and now I'm having a full-fledged ugly day.

Glad to see I'm not alone.

Michemily said...

"Someone's been here with the ugly stick." What movie?

Ugly is the new cute.

And I'm jealous of Mindy. I don't think I've had a day like that since 1995 or earlier.

12ontheinside said...

Yes, I am having a day like that too. But really? We're not allowed to wear scrunchies any more?

wendy said...

Sorry---I bet your scrunchie is way cuter then hers. And you don't have stinky smoke breath ..(whoops, and if you do, sorry)

Heather of the EO said...

Cheryl said...

Ha! Every day is an ugly day for me. Some day I may grow up and learn to do my hair and makeup. But probably not.

Mz. Cat said...

I had one heck of an ugly day... I was called into the principal's office and I am a teacher.... ICK!

Merry said...

Scrunchies are bad????
Another illusion bites the dust. This is not my day.
