This Week in Unemployment: I Wore a Bra For 10 Straight Hours Today

Did ya'll know there is a new Windows operating system looming on the horizon?

There is. Windows 7. Supposed to suck a lot less than Vista did.

At my old old company, they need to make sure that their products work with the new OS, and also get updates ready for their website so people will be able to use their products with the new OS. Fun stuff, lemme tells ya.

And apparently some people are "too busy" to get around to testing these things, so I got to go into the office today to play around with the PC that has a beta of Windows 7 on it.

Oh, and I finally met the new Head Dude working there that has always been out of the office any time I stopped by.

And I successfully wore a bra for 10 hours straight without having to "adjust" (meaning: partly unhook the back) it at all. I am a gal who needs to wear a bra. However, unless I feel like spending $100 a pop (or is that $50 a melon?) on a bra, they just are not comfortable. Back starts to hurt, straps digging into my shoulders, etc. So, being on my own in the house since leaving the world of the employed, it's been mostly those shelf-bra tanks for me. Just enough support and spandex to make me comfortable, and if I'm not leaving the house, I don't worry too much about the "uni-boob" situation (looking like you've got one mound of boob rather than the proper two).

I'm a bit surprised. I was starting to get worried I might have reached the part of unemployement where you just aren't at all comfy in the regular 9 to 5 clothes anymore.

I am, however, in that lovely part of unenployment where electronics start to break, and you find out a car needs a two thousand dollar repair. Always a fun place.

Oh, and the judgement of Windows 7? All the annoying pop ups of Vista with thefull Polug & Play functionality that Microsoft promised users like ten years ago.

Sooooo glad we just got these new desktops with XP. Soooooo glad.

I too have the bra problem and suggest you try Waacol Bras. The model I like is $65.00...not cheap but better than $100.00.

What kind of bra? I have some severe bra issues myself, and that sounds like it might be a good one to try. (Yeah, I just came out of hibernation to comment about a bra. Oy.)

Sorry, I spelled it's Wacoal and I refuse to wear anything else.

Huh? What?

We've had Windows 7 (RC) on our rec-room laptop for many months now, and it's waaaaaaaaaay less annoying than Vista.

Having been more or less forced to use Vista (when the XP machine died), I'm looking forward to 7, but, of course, not looking forward to the upgrade process itself and finding out whether all my apps still work.

Bras... Chantelle is my favorite brand. Too bad they change for extra one of those French letters.

More XP thoughts... you'd be surprised, Word Guy... every one of a certain company's currently shipping analog modems installed under Windows 7. Maybe not with the best/most current driver, but they all installed. That was a pleasant surprise.
