Whenever I’m super-busy, I like to tell MrB that I’m a “busy businesswoman doing business.” That’s inspired by this Family Guy moment.

I don’t have a lot of photos of me in the office during my corporate days, but I’ve dug up two. This one is from 1995, when I worked for the Wall Street Journal Interactive Edition. My awesome perm was growing out. Note the basket of candy to my right. It was supposed to be for everyone, but I think I ate 99% of the contents.

I was wearing the red pantsuit by Complice (Gianni Versace used to design the line) that I bought second-hand at Allan & Suzi. I donated that one to a thrift store a long time ago, but I still have the black Versace pantsuit I’m wearing in the photo below.

This was taken in 2003 or 2004, in my office at Lehman Brothers. I can’t remember why MrB sent me the spectacular roses! Birthday? Valentine’s Day? Whatever the reason, I was clearly very happy about the flowers.

    Mr B gives good flowers. I hope he has maintained the standard over the years! I suspect he has, he strikes me as one cool dude.
    I had forgotten about the penis cure, thanks for the reminder.

    Vintage WendyB–all’s right with the world!

    Ha! Busy businesswoman. Those roses are ser-io-us!

    That’s the kind of bouquet that makes fellow office workers stared in stunned silence as the delivery person walks by.

    You’re adorable. And OMG, we are seriously sistahs from another mistah. I was just doing some 80’s research over the weekend and tried Googling Complice. There is almost nothing to be found. So sad. I loved it!
