Fired From the Ranks...

"I think that playing dress-up begins at age five and never truly ends." - Kate Spade

I realized again today why so many newer books (esp. "chick lit") don't resonate with me. This realization occured when I got an email in my inbox from Amazon that said: Kate Spade is here! and I tried to think of what book she'd written.

In fact, it took me clicking through on the link to figure out just who (or what) Kate Spade was.

Do you suppose I'll be fired from the ranks of women?


Today, DH and DD will remain home. It's raining. They need rest (they both look exhausted -- did I mention they were out boating three days in a row?). But, it will undoubtedly make for an interesting day all around with us cooped up inside all day. I may go hide in my office...


Your Brain is Flexible

You have a tempered, reasonable way of thinking.

You tend to take every new idea in, and meld it with your world view.

For you, everything is always changing. Each moment is different.

Your thinking process tends to be very natural - with no beginnings or endings.

Um... maybe?

If you're fired from the ranks of women, then count me next to you in the unemployment line.... I had to look "Kate Spade" up as well.

And, I find it mildly amusing that my word verification word is saque.

Since I had to pick the square that I thought was the least offensive, I don't know if this is accurate. Frankly, none of the squares were appealing to me.

Your Brain is Profound

Your mind is a firestorm - full of intensity and drama.
Your thoughts may seem scattered to you most of the time...
But they often seem strong and passionate to those around you.
You are a natural influencer. The thoughts you share are very powerful and persuading.

Who is Kate Spade? I'll be fired with you as well.

I hear you on the rain. Summer is not my favorite season, but what happepned to sunny days? Rain is definitely not my favorite weather condition.

Your Brain is Focused

You're a simple thinker, and this is actually a very good thing.

You don't complicate matters when you don't have to.

You look for the simplest explanation or solution, and you go with that.

As a result, your mind is uncluttered and free of stress.

Have a good Tuesday.

I knew Kate Spade because my friend is from NY City and is up on all that fashion junk. LOL!

LOL I got that same email and had to look click on it to figure out what Kate Spade is LOL. Move on over I need a spot next to you too LOL. I can't imagine spending that kind of $$ on a purse, don't get me wrong I love purses but that would buy a lot of kibble or books lol.

Good luck with everyone home. It is actually RAINING here now and we are soooo excited.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

I knew who Kate Spade was (and Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik, etc) but I'm not into all that designer stuff either.

I know who Kate Spade is, but a book full of name dropping and fashion doesn't resonate with me. My purse came from TJ Maxx. *G*
According to the quiz: Your Brain is Adaptable. Your brain is always looking for the connections in life.
You always amaze your friends by figuring out things first.
You're also good at bringing people together - and often play match maker.
You see the world in fluid, flexible terms. Nothing is black or white.

Ooookay. Not sure about that one.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

I learned about Kate Spade via my teen exchange daughters, so I'll be fired along with you. ;-)

I'm still not sure who she is... Oh well... maybe we can all start our own subculture or something: Women out of the Chick Lit Loop
