Quote of the Day

I work at a college. Being around 18-24 year olds all means I get to hear some crazy things. At the end of the day, I usually proclaim a "Quote of the Day."

There was "I was going to go online and pay my tuition after the party, but when I woke up, I wasn't in my own apartment."

And then we had, Girl A: "My mom is a big Mick Jagger fan. We even have him hanging up in our living room."   Girl B: "You mean, like a stuffed body?"

One of the best Quote of the Day winners came from listening to two young women planning a bachelorette party using Craigslist. Yes, Craiglist. "You can't really see this stripper's face in the pictures. But from what I can see, I think he's a ginger."

Today's quote of the day is, not about unpaid tuition, life-sized Mick Jagger dolls or sketchy red headed guys (you're welcome), and it's not even from campus. It comes from the comments on The Bloggess's (www.bloggess.com) post today. Comment number 40 from a commenter named Rachel made me laugh out loud. And gave away the fact I should be working harder. And is darn good advice.

You should always use your assets. Also your breastsets.

Anyway, Lean In seems to be about how to get ahead if you are already way ahead of most people and have fistfulls of cash with which to pay people to do the things that might prevent you from getting the farthest ahead in business.

So here's to feminism. To using our assests, our breastsets and occasionally our actual skillsets.
