fashion Wednesday?

So remember back in the spring when I agreed to be VP of my P.E.O. chapter?  Putting me next in line to the throne?  I suddenly find myself in charge of the unruly bunch.

The Prez has been sequestered to a secret bunker.  Either that or she's taking a night class having to do with certification for her job.  I think the secret bunker sequestration is a better story.  Either way, it means I'm in charge.

What?  Everyone knows Veeps don't do anything!

Well, it is what it is.  I dunno, though, this is a pretty ho-hum, serious bunch

I can't share what this activity was about.
Top secret.  Obviously.

In other fashion news *ahem*, that bicycling jacket I bought under duress?  Splendid decision!  It's already saved me four additional times from inclemency!  I say it's paid for itself.

Go 'head and rain!  I've got a Pearl Izumi barrier jacket!

I went to the university today.  Fall classes start next week, so the campus was abuzz, mostly with new freshman who had their move-in day yesterday.  A few parents still hanging around, having a tough time letting go I suppose...

There was also some event for new grad students.  I scoped out a few going to the thing and was pleased to see a good representation from my age group.  Often times when I've gone to a pedal perks thing, they've asked me if I'm a staff member  *sigh*.  Maybe more of those old grad students need to sign up for pedal perks!

But alas, pedal perks is coming to a close.  It was a one-year bicycling incentive program from a grant for the recreation and sustainability departments.  This is the final month.  Whether it continues in some form or another remains to be seen once they crunch all the stats and feedback.

I will say that I made out like a bandit!  I hope it continues because I think it really did help bicycle commuting to and from the university in general, not because I need or want more stuff.

On that note, I got more stuff.  Another t-shirt:

It's true.  You did.

You got promoted too? ;)
Sorry to hear pedal perks is coming to a close. Now what reason will you have to ride? Except maybe showin' off all your new garb. Love your latest t-shirt!

The prez is gone into seclusion? I'd say it's time for a coup! Time to take reigns or power and seize the thrown.

More bike bling? Too bad the pedal perks is ending. Maybe they are tired of Abby winning all the cool stuff.

Loving the new t-shirt and jacket. May it piss down on you just to prove the jacket works!

Sad news about pedal perks. And come on admit it, you want me stuff. We all want more stuff! :D

Abby said...

Ha! That's one way to look at it - with all the promoting going around blogland. Not exactly what I had in mind.
I'm sad to see pedal perks go. We had a good ride... heh.

Abby said...

A coup! Hmm... now THAT sounds like fun. Strike while the iron's hot!
And God forbid I need to buy my own t-shirts and socks now.

Abby said...

Piss away!
Okay, I don't mind more stuff. The right stuff.

The woman in the back/right made me laugh. Love her cop helmet. Maybe you can borrow it and put a red light on your bike.

Yeah, that looks like a super boring group over which to preside. Don't know how you do it! I like your hat, but I love the pirate hat! Argh!

You definitely made the right decision with that jacket. I'm a little jealous. I bought a nice rain jacket years ago - one that doesn't look like a rain jacket. It was expensive, but I too soon found it was worth the money.

Another new t-shirt? Where do you store all of them? How many pedal and race shirts do you have? I DO love this newest one. Very cute!

Abby said...

Yes, PoPo lady is not to be messed with!

Abby said...

I think the universe was telling me to buy that jacket.
Funny, I was just thinking about my t-shirts - sometimes I just want to wear one that doesn't say anything. I don't have any!

I've been on three boards - no one wore awesome hats like that...
