Local self esteem boosters unite!

Okay, so the dress fitting just got postponed for thirty minutes, which is maybe kinda sorta fate (if I believed in that... to be continued...) saying I needed the extra time at my office for the following two things to occur:
  • I got the nicest note ever from Jaydee at An Accidental Texan about my dress fitting post. Then, she followed up with a post of her own. Can emotionally healthy women in this state who are not size zero and don't want to be size zero please raise your hands?! Love it! Jaydee, you have a new reader. (And many, I hope... go read Jaydee!)

  • I got an e-mail from Kate reminding me that since she can see the store I'm going to from her office, she could meet me for my fitting and be ready to "backhand Frenchie if she speaks one negative syllable!" To which I tried to protest that since she's getting married on Saturday she probably shouldn't leave work because she has so much to do and (wait - seriously? why would I not want a fellow sane person with me in the salon of snobbiness?!)... Anyway, cut to me coming to my senses and Kate replying that she will be there "with Bitch Bells on!" And she is my hero.
To be continued....

UPDATE: Victory! Everyone was on their best behavior, probably because Amazon Goddess Kate was sending subconscious threats from up above. I even managed to schedule the next fitting for when Heather the Bridesmaid is in town... woo hoo! And now I'm laid back watching Disc 3: Gowns from the 4-DVD Martha Stewart Weddings collection while the F-Word is passed out from his medicated back condition next to me. Fun for all!

YAYAYAYAY. You're going to look beautiful! And I'm glad Kate will be there to smack some sense in to them if need be.

oh good, so glad to hear that kate was there with her bitch bells ready--god help the woman on the receiving in of them (esp. on the receiving end of them when they're so well-tuned given that its the week of her wedding). hope the fitting went amazing!

*receiving end, not receiving in..me talk smart sometimes. je-sus.

You're a beautiful lady, trust. I'm glad you had the support needed to face the appointment.

Kate, Remind me to give you a big hug at the wedding. Anyone that tries to turn such a great happy moment into a DREADED event for the beautiful bride needs to be knocked down a peg or two and I think that you are up to the job. And Maggie, I hoped you showed a little bit of what you are made of - you never could abide condecending, judgemental people and you're smart enough to cleverly give that salesperson an attitude adjustment! I'm anxious to hear the rest of the story!!!

Not a size 0 here (nor emotionally healthy, most likely, but . . .) to say YAY for your fitting going well! I cannot believe they were so horrid to you before. "Bitch bells" on indeed!
