Meeting Notes

Meeting Notes is a weekly feature. Here we will dish on tidbits, news, and important things we think you Working Girls should know. So scroll down to hear what we think you should glean from this work week.
  • I often steal Women's Wear Daily from the front desk if I'm feeling particularly gutsy and I am so glad that I did this week because otherwise I would not have known that Alexander McQueen is going to be making a line for Target. Yes, it is a fact. Scream and giggle all you want because today is a momentous day in the world of fashion. Oh, and we hear that the line is gonna be edgy and studded and tattooed. I might sleep outside the store just to get a T-shirt.
  • Is it just me or do the words 'Heidi' and 'unemployed' make you giddy? If you haven't seen the clip from The Hills of Heidi getting the axe after getting too sauced (at work mind you), you must go find it immediately. What I don't understand is why she no longer had her cushy corner office and had to vacate from a cubicle? Also, when I leave my job I hope I have more to take home than just my purse (because we all know I am totally taking that huge box of paper clips and a stack of Post-Its!). 
  • Planning on going to business school any time soon? Seems the time is of the essence. According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, with the economy in a slump people are applying more than ever to go back to school and get their MBA's. 
  • But going back to business school sure has its perks! Another article in the Wall Street Journal (which is apparently my new must read) says that a lot of business schools in London will be using the 2012 Summer Olympics as a teaching tool for lessons in tourism and marketing. So if you're in the midst of choosing a business school, my advice is to hit up the UK.

I took my day planner when I was laid off from my job.

One, it had my name in it; two, it had all my personal and work related appointments so I could balance the two. No one misses it... yet.

I admit it: I watch The Hills every week. I found some sort of sick, twisted pleasure when Heidi got fired.

When I leave my job I plan on ripping a leg off my desk and taking it with me so they'll always remember when they see that desk.

I totally have to check out that Hills episode!

Sorry if this is bursting anyone's bubble... but Heidi's job wasn't real. The Hills is not a reality tv show. The job was fabricated - as is (I believe) Audrina's job.

So she's "fired" on tv.. but she's the same in real life.

Business school is fab. I dearly miss it.

Ya, business school now is almost compulsory! I liked it, it was the kind of statistic i expected.

The idea of Heidi being unemployed from her fake job makes me smile every time. I had doubts if Brent would "man up" and do it and fortunately, I wasn't disappointed. Go Brent

I went back 2 years ago to get my MBA to get the upper-hand in the job market.... now I may have to go back for something else to diversify myself even further... jeez! Still loving your blog!
