Becoming Rita

I decided at the last minute this week to enter an online self-portrait competition. But, the last thing I wanted to do was paint myself the way I am typically every day. I have always thought I should have been born a 1940's film star, like Rita Hayworth or Lauren Bacall. So, naturally I took this opportunity to turn myself into a 40's starlet.

A bit of Random for your Tuesday

1. I finished my taxes yesterday, but for some reason that makes me feel like I have the right to take a little mini-vacation. Not a good start for this year's earnings...

2. I am still in my pajamas, still drinking coffee, and contemplating 2nd breakfast.

3. At some point today I will have to get dressed and go teach my after school program at the museum, although I have already wondered if the kids would notice if I showed up in my current state of sweatpants awesomeness.

4. My after school kids are building museum dioramas, and it's pretty amazing to see what a 3rd grader can make out of a cardboard box.

5. I have been trying to figure out how to make my time out of my sweats as short as possible.
