The suckage of formality
Saturday, February 3, 2007

Okay. The last two days, I've looked like a corporate flunky twice. As in, pinstripe and sweater on Friday, pinstripe suit today. (And it's not even brown! Okay. Well, most Fireflans don't get that reference, but... *sigh*) I did science fair. With MORDACIL. Yep. Know him IRL. Well, we got third place. Another friend we know got second, and a couple of our friends (separate projects, BTW) got first.
This is the regional, and I should be happy I got third, but, honestly, I talked to four or five judges in a span of two hours. Let's make this clear: there was an hour and a half allocated to set up. Okay, yeah, some people came with schools, so that's why they had to have that long. Then there was a random hour and a half before judging started. Which was two hours, during which I had to stand in 2.5-3 inch heels, and be pleasant, and not be conspicuous about eating my food. Good news is we didn't have to stay for the public viewing. I would have died , because judging was over at one, and public viewing was four to six pm...

Well, I went back up today, for the project breakdown and awards ceremony, and we got third place. Did I mention that MORDACIL was wearing jeans, a tee shirt, and a fleece hoodie pull over? OMFG.

And, you know, we talked about this yesterday, and he showed up in the same sort of thing today.

Well. *sighs* I feel better. That may be the effect of watching a Dalek implode.

Formality sucks.

Well, I got the reference, least I think I did. Doctor Who, right?


Anyway...formality does suck the big one. Had a job interview a couple of days ago and I dressed up of course...which blows major chunks cuz I ain't a suit and tie kind of guy;)

Still...third! That's definitely an achievement;D
