The Awkward Security Badge Moment

Where I work, everyone has to wear a security badge.

Since I am still pretty young in the professional world, I haven't yet acquired an overabundance of business attire.  You might even say that my wardrobe is fairly small.
I just don't go shopping for clothing very often.
As such, I am forced to repeat outfits from time to time.

This means that, occasionally, I end up wearing the same shirt that appears in my security badge photo.
I don't know why, but this is incredibly awkward for me.
On these days, I usually try to keep my badge turned around, so no one will notice.

Is that weird?

I've actually noticed this same phenomena a couple of times with the people I work with.
I've never pointed it out though.

Sometime in the near future I will be getting a new security badge.
I'm very tempted to permanently retire whatever shirt I end up wearing for that photo...

I Made It!

Hey Everybody!

Remember how I submitted a photo to failblog?

You should! It was only two posts ago!

Well this morning I got an email informing me that my picture MADE IT ON THE HOMEPAGE!


Check it out here.

Then like it, share it, comment on it, do whatever you want!

Lately, I've been a little bit forgetful.
I'm not sure why.
Luckily, my recent dysfunction has lent itself to some mildly amusing situations.

Situation 1:
I go to Church on Sunday.
After church, I get in my car to return home.
I turn on my car, put it in reverse, turn myself around, and back out of my parking spot.
Having successfully back out, I turn back around, ready to proceed in a forwardly direction.
I realize that I forgot to take down my windshield sun reflector.
Vision, totally blocked.

Situation 2:
I go to the gym on Tuesday.
I exercise.
I get all sweaty and gross.
I finish my exercise.
I shower.
Finish showering and turn off the water.
Suddenly realize that I don't have a towel.
Wet. Naked. Dilemma.

Situation 3:
Today I needed a wrench.
I went downstairs intending to go to the garage to retrieve said wrench.
Ended up doing a load of laundry and then coming back upstairs.
Remembered that I forgot to get the wrench, went back downstairs, went into the garage.
Ended up cleaning some things out of my car.
Came back upstairs.
Remembered that I once again had forgotten the wrench.
Went back downstairs to the garage, finally grabbed the wrench.
Three tries just to remember to get a dang wrench!

What the heck is wrong with me?
