Busted being a rocker

One of the cardinal rules of having a personal blog is to avoid writing about work at all costs. However, this was a little too funny to pass up.

Remember how my friend Sarah wrote about our Metallica concert experience in her column for In Utah? Well somebody at my office came across the article and decided to make sure everyone was aware of my stardom. You can imagine my surprise when my boss handed me the article and said "I never knew you were such a rocker."

I know it's a little blurry, but at the top are all of my co-workers initials. Standard policy is to cross of your initials and pass it on to the next person so that everyone gets a chance to see whatever important document is getting circulated. Also written to the right it says "Summer is totally famous."

I'm not going to lie, I was pretty embarrassed. I guess that is the price you pay for having famous friends. Funny if you think about it, I was able to strut my butt-rocker self through a restaurant, public transportation and a concert with my head held high. But knowing that my boss and co-workers read about me wearing "hooker gear" to a metal concert was enough to make me want to hide in my office. I guess it's because I try so hard to keep "Professional Summer" separate from "Rocker Summer". Well, the cat's out of the bag now. Think they'll be OK if I trade in my business suits for fishnet shirts and mini skirts?

Blogfully yours,

I think if they're not okay w/ your rocker gear, it's totally time for a new job.
