Have you ever had one of those days....

....when you over sleep and finally get up 14 minutes before you are supposed to leave for work? And you put on a new shirt and inspect yourself in the mirror, thinking you look pretty cute? And somehow your hair still has some of the curl in it from yesterday so you just throw a pretty flower clip in it to finish off the look. And you leave the house feeling pretty lucky that you are such a goddess that you don't even need to put any effort in to looking good for the day?

Then as you are walking in to work you catch a glimpse of yourself in the semi-mirrored doors and something looks a little off? You walk in to the elevator with mirrored walls (why is everything at my work mirrored!!) and you look like you ate an entire humpback whale for breakfast even though all you really had was a bowl of Kashi cereal with soy milk and 1   2  3 cookies?  And you see the back of your hair and realize that what you thought were soft curls actually resemble knotted mouse nests?

Somehow you make it to the bathroom just to confirm that the elevator mirrors were really just fun house mirrors from the carnival...and you realize that you look like the female equivalent to the Elephant Man?

You take a deep breath, tell yourself you can do this, put your shoulders back, chest out and suck in your gut as far as you can because you know you have to make it past that guy's office that  you work with that used to be a model and even though you think he's a major jack hole you don't want him to think Shamu just swam by his office?

PLEASE tell me you've had one of those days....and that it's not just me?? 

I think I need another cookie.

  12. i've never had one of those days. i wake up looking like the hotness that i am. sizzle.

    plus. it could be that i never look in a mirror. mirrors are big fat liars.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Basically every day was like that for me from the age of about 8 until the age of 20! Seriously, I have the pictures for backup :)
    But - knowing you, YOUR hair looked just fine!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh em gee, I swear that's my life to a T! I'm pathologically late :)

  15. Remember the time I went to school after a spiffy new hair do and one of my students said I looked like Cruella de Ville? Or a different supposedly fine time another student said that I didn't even look like I had combed my hair that day? Such is life!

    ReplyDelete
  16. *lol* I've definitely had one of those days!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Sure have had them! I'm not quite sure why my "creative" outfit ideas seem perfectly fine at home and are horrifying once I arrive at work. I try to plan my outfits the night before as often as possible to avoid early morning rush tragedies. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh dear. I think I would have hid in the corner. Good job on putting your shoulders back and going for it.

  23. g'morning, SITStah,
    Yeah, we all have those days :D I think people get used to us and they don't notice when we're having an "off" day as much as we notice it.

    I train in martial arts on a regular basis. One thing I've come to realize is that the guys in my class don't notice that I'm having a bad hair day unless I point it out to them.

    That's probably true for all the other people I think are noticing my every flaw too. They only see what I direct their attention too.

    I say just flash your biggest smile and sashay your "shamu-godess-ness" down the hall past the ex-model's doorway. He'll come out from behind his desk to see what's going on :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hold the phone! You mean to tell me that not every day is supposed to be like that? Ser, this is just supposed to be like the off day. Ahhhh man.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Those pesky mirrors. You walk out of the house , even if you have had all day to get dressed. thinking I look good....and then those mirrors show up and you say, I am skipping lunch again.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thats like my everyday, except the kids' leftover waffles instead of kashi, sweat pants instead of real clothes, and it's about 6pm when i remember i haven't brushed my hair AFTER running errands all day. So in comparison you really were goddess-y

    ReplyDelete
  27. It is all in how you carry yourself. Those ratty curls might mean you hooked up with Hugh Laurie or something. Wait-I'm still on my fantasy from last night's HOUSE episode. Don't waste the single life being insecure. Rock those ratty curls and eat what you like-with health not your figure in mind!

  28. Screaming w/ laughter... Happy SITS Day.

    ReplyDelete
  29. 0kay, love it! When I was working after I had my daughter, I always was having one of those days...Let's not forget the feeling of your heart and stomach switching places as you realize you are running late. Luckily, I worked in a doctor's office so we wore scrubs everyday, but I always felt like the grossness of me not showering or brushing my hair properly seeped through like toxic waste. Ick.

  30. I'm sporting hair that hasn't been washed in 3 days as I read this. I thought it looked okay, but now I'm wondering . . .

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh, yeah, I know about those days. I also don't like the days that I feel like I look amazing and I don't see anyone who matters. What a waste.
    Happy SITS day!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh yes, that happens to me. But only on the days that I'm out in public and run into someone I haven't seen for years. Nice.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Stopping in from SITS. Congrats on your SITS Day! Oh yes, I've had my share of those days. My stylist told me once that I should only wash my hair every other day and to just condition on the days i don't shampoo. Yeah, not working for me. It looked like someone attacked me with a grease gun and a brush!

    Here's to good hair days (and cookies for breakfast!)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Story of my life, hehe.

    Congrats on your SITS Day! :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ha ha! Oh yes. We've all had those days, unfortunately.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh my goodness that is me TODAY!!!
    I even have some left over eye liner on that makes me look like Courtney Love!

    Stopping by from SITS - enjoy your day!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, honey, it is not just you. Recently, I left the house under the delusion that my hair still looked fab from the night out before. I labored under said delusion until I casually ran my hand through my hair and it got stuck. It's really hard to look casual as you use both hands to extract yourself from your own rat's nest, taking a handful of hair with you.

    Do you have long hair? A messy-ish bun/chignon (never have figured out the difference) is always a good option on those days.

  40. Calling by from Italy to wish you congratulations on your SITS day.

  41. i think i have those days most every day! but what i really hate is when you are for real looking good and don't see anyone who matters all day! what a waste!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think you can't be human if you haven't had one of these days!
    Oh and happy Sits day!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Happy SITS day! I have these moments on like a regular basis! ;) I hope youre having a great day!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hahahaha! I have one of those days at least once a week! I find that my fashion/hair judgment is a weeee bit off before my third cup of coffee. I usually get to work and nearly faint. Fix it, then pour more coffee.

    Happy SITS day!!!

  45. Happy SITS day! You've got a great sense of humor :) What you described sounds like what just about every gal has been through. Many just don't say it, but I totally know what you mean.

  50. Hahaha! Great post! And yes, I have those days all the time. Today's a good day for one, seeing as how it's been pouring rain all day coupled with wind. Whew am I looking hot today!

    Happy SITS day!

  51. Happy SITS day to you. I have to say that at this point my hair being braided at least 3 days a week is how I go these days.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Just joined SITS and I'm so happy I did. I teach 3rd and 4th grade. When I have one of those days I don't need a mirror, my students let me know.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hi Just stopping by from Sits.....Yes I have those days all the time! I am a hair stylist so I am in front of the mirror all day, not fun when those bad hair days or skin breakouts pop up! Those floresent lights tend to highlight what you don't want them to! ;)
    Great blog!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Never had one of those days with the hair. But, of course we've all had bad days! Once, I came in with two different shoes - good thing they were both black. I don't think anybody noticed though.

    ReplyDelete
  55. That happens to me all the time! The girls I work with always look so cute & I just want to crawl under my desk and hide...I feel your pain!

    ReplyDelete
  56. OMFG! You said it, girl! I've SO been there!
    SITS love!

    ReplyDelete
  57. This sounds like about every day of my life! It's never occurred to me that maybe there's something wrong with my bathroom mirror...

    Happy day from SITS!

    ReplyDelete
  58. New to your blog, So cute! I have these days often.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'm glad it's not just me...

    Happy SITS Feature Day!

  60. is that like catching a glimpse of your rear-end in a mirror and realizing that those yoga pants are not your friend like you thought they were... only its 7 pm and you've worn them EVERYWHERE today?

    if thats the same thing, then yes, I've been there too!!!

    happy sits day, baby!

    And it's not just you. It's why either there is always a rubberband around the left wrist. :)

  63. LOL several times a week when I worked. Now when I have one of those days, I just blame it on having to take a nap during the day.

  64. I used to have days like that often when I worked. Now, when my hair looks like that I blame it on a nap.
