What a week and a lesson in Retro!

Am so very glad that is over with! Too much to do and too little time! My invoicing for the month still sucks and have been involved in rewrite city so haven't been able to as much writing for my regular client as usual... though that will change this week. I must invoice 1500 a month or we are hosed.

I spent a lot of time on the phone with potential advertisers for the magazine, as well as planning our first business woman's luncheon and our first kindred connection event. A lot of work, but I really need to remember to focus on my other writing as well. Must make a note of that. I also have to get a report in to my publisher on distribution in Oregon... it is distributed in Washington and Idaho, but not widely distributed in Oregon yet. That must change! One of my first priorities.

Oh, and a lesson in retro! I found an old pair of sunglasses last week just at the time I had misplaced a pair. These were old Bucci glasses, circa 1988. They were 100.00 back then. White with the old Vaurnet type eyepieces... they have a thick clear plastic coating on the inside of the eye pieces (not the lenses). The ear pieces say handmade in france and a metal plate with Bucci and a small lion on them. I thought they were pretty cool and decided to wear them again... I have recieved more comments on those glasses now then I ever did when they are new. The 18 yo girl next door saw me pull up in the car and ran over to find out what they were. She couldn't believe they were from the eighties. Said they were something Paris would wear. I went to the ice rink and had three of the skaters (13 to 16) start gushing over my sunglasses... and yesterday my banker looked at me and said, "Great shades!" So let that be a lesson to us... keep everything! Snort!

I will post a pix when I get one:)
