  1. Aquatalia PSA :

    Rhumba is on sale on Aquatalia’s website for 75% off, taking them down to $188, today only. Check it out. I believe it’s final sale. I am a Size 12 and I found them to run small at the top of the range (as many Italian shoes do). Happy hunting.

  2. I agree that HR is useless in stopping someone from being a sexueal harasser. Even in big firms, they are useless, but in small firm’s, you can NOT expect the manageing partner to insure everything is done BY THE BOOK! FOOEY!

    Frank is always peering at my boobies, or pinching my tuchus, and no one ever does ANYTHING! What is a good girl like me to do? OUT him? FOOEY!
