Look, for the most part, we hate country music. But every now and then, we get a hankering for something from our South Georgia roots, and we’ll spend $1.29 to reconnect with our BBQ loving, high school football worshiping, Abercrombie wearing former self. However, someone out there has GOT to let us know if one of these random country songs is going to make us cry at work. There are only so many times tears can well up in one’s eyes and one can be excused before people start thinking you are a little emotionally unstable. But seriously, “I Loved Her First” by Heartland?!? How can we not think about growing up at Shoney’s Breakfast Bar with edad?! And HELLO “Whatever It Is” by Zac Brown Band. Oh how you make the inner 16 year old emote. And “God Bless the Broken Road”…literally you’d think we were reminiscing the divorce and the second marriage, because the road from Columbus, GA to Vandy to ATL ain’t been that bad. So, dear government, please throw us girls in our twenties a bone and moderate which country songs will make us cry. We can’t be trusted when left to our own devices!!

Thanks for your forgiving attitude this week about the spotty blogging. Essentially, we had a huge event this week, and we’ve been in LA for 6 days trying to make it happen.
The Week in Review (via songs in our head):
Saturday AM: “I’m in Miami, Los Angie Trick,” LMFAO
Sunday Afternoon (after a little set up issue): “Can we pretend that airplanes, like shooting stars….and I could really use a wish a right now…wish right now…wish right now….”, B.O.B
Tuesday AM: ”I gotta get through this…I gotta get through this…I gotta make….gotta make…gotta make…”, Daniel Bedingfield
Wednesday Noon: ”Ohhhhhh we’re half way there….oh oh living on an (emum) prayer”, Bon Jovi
Thursday 5pm (event over): ”I look up the sky…I know the world is mine…I’ve known it all my life……I made it…I made it”
Thursday 5:05 pm: ”Erbody in the club gettin’ tipsy!”

eBoss: ”elaney, I was so proud of you when I saw you set up a 9am meeting! Look at you planning to get here first thing in the morning.”
elaney: ”ugh, so not my choice. XX had a conflict. Plus I figured if I can’t make it in by then I can just call in from the car.”
eBoss: ”Ah – that makes a lot more sense.”

The interns are always getting emails with readers asking, “where is the best place to get a reasonably priced business suit for the ladies?” The answer is easy – Banana Republic. They have all the basics and really good sales. However, we would like to encourage you ladies to not limit yourself to the business suit, even if you work in a more formal environment. It is totally okay to mix it up a little. If you can’t show skin, might as well show a little personality.
In fact, we believe that a good fashion sense makes you look more like you have it together. So go ahead ladies, and burn your panty hose! Don’t get crazy – still look professional, but pair classic plants with a trendy shoe (see below). You’ll look good and feel confident. A recipe for success.

For some reason, we love new pop songs more in the spring. There is something about green grass and eating outside that makes us want to get in the car with 3 girls and sing along with the radio a la driving from Peabody to Main Campus. It’s not even spring yet, and we are embarrassed to admit that Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” makes us feel like it is.
Life at the elaney office today: “Hmm, okay I need finish designing a new header for the enewsletter”….I see the lights; see the party, the ball gowns…”I need to send a book to that reporter”…You say hello, little did I know...”I need to rewrite that copy for the website”…That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles – And my daddy said “stay away from Juliet…”
And what else did I need to do?…
“Romeo take me somewhere, we can be alone.
I’ll be waiting; all there’s left to do is run.
You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess,
It’s a love story, baby, just say yes.”
