From Hell

So tomorrow it starts. "Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!" Yes, my friends, tomorrow is the first day of fall semester at my place of employment. If I could carry a taser, a bullhorn, and a flask of a sweet alcoholic beverage around with me all day perhaps I could enjoy myself. Alas, and alack, but for some reason they will not allow these accessories. I have also not been able to find that perfect outfit that screams both "don't give me any shit" as well as "I will be happy to help you" while simultaneously looking professional. If anyone has any suggestions for that combo please let me know. I must steel myself for my trip into one of the circles of hell. I think this calls for ice cream and cards with friends.

OK - from personal experience. Wear a lot of black, not much makeup, but be sure to have a strong-colored mouth. Seriously. This works. Somehow, it seems to convey, "I know what I'm doing and I can help you, but I don't have to, so you better make it worth my while."

Whips are optional.
