    Hi Annie and Crabcakes,
    Yes, trews=trousers, probably not jeans. I'm an odd shape or something because dress trousers are my fashion nemesis. I cannot find a pair that fit at waist, hips and are long enough that don't cut into me when I sit down...I like wearing trousers to work (no shaving required!), but always end up regretting it half way through the day - either they're too big at the waist, too short in the leg or too snug in the intimate places (when I was about to swim in the Dead Sea the tour guide warned us that the salt would sting in intimate places, he wasn't wrong). Dresses and skirts are just so much more forgiving to minor fluctuations in shape for me.

    As to rocking my height - believe me I do. I'm more than happy to wear heels and TOWER over puny humans But I also have to be aware of the intimidation effects; I'm beginning to wonder if it's counting against me in job interviews, for instance, not much I can do to mitigate this, but I suppose I'm fairly forceful too...a fatal combination when the interview panel is all male (and short).

    Being willowy rather than solid might help, I suppose. Perhaps I should practise my girlish giggle and hair twirling? (I'm much more likely to shave my head and up the butch, if I'm honest.)

    No, please not giggly, but not butch either. What about elegant?

    English. Tall. Silk dress. Heels. Cut-glass accent. Nah, I do elegant far *too* well. It's not working for me here.

    Husband has downloaded (I operate a don't ask, don't tell policy on all media that 'appears' in our collection) Nik Kershaw, Howard Jones, Jenny Owens Young *and* Dresden Dolls.

    Am. In. Heaven.

    As a very misguided pre-teen I actually considered sending a full-frontal beach holiday candid shot to poor old Nik and, well, nearly 30 years later he *still* does it for me, even though I know he's short and has lost his spiky glory these days. *sigh* However, musically, Howard Jones stands up to the passage of time much better.

    Can you tell that I've been immersing myself in music? I haven't listened to this many toonz in years. And today is a mellow, calm day. We've not left the living room - small boy and man have been knee-deep in Lego all day, leaving me to daydream. No exercise, no weights, but the indoor Vibrams are still getting plenty of loving as I sit and immerse myself in the memories that surface as the songs fill my consciousness.

    I was so busy this morning writing a long email - you didn't think I'd be working, did you? - that I nearly forgot to eat again. How strange. Husband has gone down with another bout of man flu, but so far small boy and I have escaped unscathed. Fingers need to stay crossed, because I do not want another round of poorliness.

    Coworker A is back from holiday tomorrow - yay!

    I don't know, without food and exercise to list this journal is getting even duller, I never thought it possible.

    Today I deliberately skipped lunch and it was fine: not hungry. Very strange altogether. It was wonderful to have Coworker A back and she gave me a garlic plant and a jar of beetroot chutney to say thank you for babysitting her job - she knows me well.

    The afternoon descended into farce as Coworkers A-F critiqued an educational handout from Sex Ed Australia. All the contraceptive methods were listed along with helpful diagrams/illustrations, but for the life of us no one could make head nor tail of the illustration for withdrawal method, although we all understood the importance of the drip. The PR woman was reduced to pointing out body parts: "that bit's a hand", "that's her bottom", "see he's on top"... I, as usual, disgraced myself: "What's wrong with a nice pearl necklace?"

    Skipped lunch and walked for a full two hours today. Is this ketosis? Super strange. Coworker A is getting antsy on my behalf though and today she brought in cream for my burnt arm, which is pink and shiny. My coworkers are wonderful - I spend at least half the day laughing. That is something to treasure. I'd share the jokes, but I work in - well, bits and babies - we see a lot of photos and there are many laughs. Goodness, though, I'm glad I procreated before I saw the photos.

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Today clueless, inept, but spiteful line manager sailed into the office and regaled us with the dream she had last night. I'll spare you the details, but suffice to say it was clear that her subconscious was sending her a very clear signal: you are incompetent and your direct reports know far more than you do. "What can it all mean?" She asked us. "I'd really love to have it analysed." I bit my tongue.

    Tomorrow I have an all-day meeting with my committee of bigwigs. Oh joy, rapture etc.

    Ah! I *finally* got a rejection letter from that interview. Fuckers.
