It’s never good when you get a text from your boss that starts with the words, “Uh, oh.”
There I was, sitting at my desk, minding my own business and surfing the Lonely Planet website on my break for summertime surf destinations, when I hear the familiar sound of my iPhone signaling a new text message. I look down at the screen and see the words, “Uh, oh.”
Long story short, because Tabs booked back-to-back kitty modeling jobs for every week this summer, I don’t get to take any vacation time through September.
Not one day.
“Uh, oh,” he says. “All booked up for summer. No vacations for either of us.”
Either of us, he says. As if! He’s not the one stuck in Novato. He gets to see the world, stay at four-star hotels, eat at the best restaurants, and never has to pay a thing, while I’m eating grilled-cheese sandwiches at home and having Mango Bars for dessert.
Sometimes, it’s just not fair…
Seriously, his idea of slumming it is having to stay at the Four Seasons on The Big Island, instead of Maui.
I know, I know — Tabs is the talent; I’m just the assistant. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have a right to get angry.
Oh, well… Hopefully these new pieces from the limited edition Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Capri Collection can cheer me up.
The summer 2012 release coasts on to counters stores next month (it’s currently available now online) and comes with two summery fragrances and 13 bronzed bits, some new and some re-promoted, in sun-kissed shades of gold, brown, turquoise and white.
Reviews coming just as soon as I finish transcribing Tabs’ manuscript.
Oh, yeah — didn’t I mention? He’s writing his autobiography right now. It begins, “Meow, mrow, meow-meow.”
What a diva, right? Cat’s got some nerve… 🙂
Here’s a quick look at seven pieces from the release. Have a look, and let me know what you think.
