Sickey-face goes back to work, plus a new outfit game

  1. How I felt at work today.
  2. How I hope I looked to others. But didn't. My manager asked me repeatedly if I needed to go home, but I was silly and stuck it out. 
  3. My new game: laying out my outfits and uploading the pic to Google Images, checking out what pops up as Visually Similar
  4. - 8. Results! Construction, a Polish-Jewish hero, headquarters to a Japanese advertising company, "German Castle" in the Bahamas (? from my Googling, I think that's what that is: an abandoned home nicknamed the German Castle), aaaand... smokey destruction of some kind. 
And that's all the brainpower I have left for tonight - as you can see, I'm a little bit loopy from the sinus pressure. o_0 Glad to have another scheduled day off tomorrow.

    Sorry you are unwell Rae!
    Bright colours might be the order of the day when you return to work- at least they might Google happy and more pleasant images.

  • Caro in Oz replied 5 years ago

    At least you're not as weird as Google :) Hope you feel better soon.

  • catgirl replied 5 years ago

    Heh. Great series of pix. The sunglasses make everything better. Feel better soon.

    Sorry you aren't well Rae.. get better soon. You do look cool in those sunnies.
    Great new game!

  • Hil replied 5 years ago

    You may be sick but you're so funny!

  • replied 5 years ago

    Hope you are feeling better soon, Rae.

  • Lantana replied 5 years ago

    Oooh, sinus pain. Very bad. Time to cosset yourself.

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    What a great idea - but talk about strange associations. Feel better!

  • Jude replied 5 years ago

    This is crazy, but the construction image is pretty similar! The other ones... um, not so much ;-) I hope you feel better after a good night's sleep...

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    Hehe, love the new game!  I hope you feel better soon!

  • pil replied 5 years ago

    Bah for not feeling well, hope you're up to snuff soon. How on earth did you come up with that game? So clever!

  • RunswithDolphins replied 5 years ago

    Too funny!  Hope you're feeling less "sickey-faced" today.

  • La Belle Demimondaine replied 5 years ago

    Feel better!   (the pictures are kind of depressing, but that's a beautiful palette, nevertheless)

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    Feel better soon. xo

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    You look great Rae - sick or well. Hope you feel better soon.

    I'm not really sure what to say about your Google search photos...

  • Emily replied 5 years ago

    I hope you feel better soon!  I like your outfit game, thanks for the LOL.  :D

  • Amy replied 5 years ago

    Feel better!

  • Diana replied 5 years ago

    Ha, the pictures say "postapocalyptic architectural" to me, which isn't too bad of an outfit descriptor, actually.  I like the color combo! 

    Hope you feel better soon.

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    Fun new game!  How do you do it?  Need an app?
     Did you upload your outfit or your sickie face, 'cause some of those photos may be capturing your feelings.  Hope you are feeling much better.

  • Neel replied 5 years ago

    The sunglasses pic looks cool spy to me. Lol! Get better soon Rae!

  • Marley replied 5 years ago

    Hahaha!  Love the Google image idea!  The color scheme is beautiful!  Hope you feel better today!

  • deb replied 5 years ago

    Do you have a sinus infection?

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    Deb, I'm pretty sure I do. Going to the doctor this afternoon. I always get a killer one this time of year. :(

    Joy and Pil, for the game, there is no app., just Google Images! I had been thinking about our past YLF outfit challenges using photos/works of art, and I thought it'd be interesting reverse that and see what my outfit inspired the internet to do... I only uploaded pic #3, because I didn't want any background elements influencing the search engine - just the clothes. 

    Diana, I totally agree. Post-apocalyptic and Urban influences are huge for UWP, and I'm actually pretty impressed that the image results were so apt for my style descriptors. I could see them fit 00Noir, too, what with the international intrigue and all. 

  • Diana replied 5 years ago

    By the way, your google images game is addictive!  I posted some of my results in my WIW thread. 

  • Karie replied 5 years ago

    Feel better soon! Mr. Karie is sick, and I'm hoping I don't get it!

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    Diana, that is awesome! I followed your lead by chopping off my head did some more outfits. 

    1-2: Twilight poster, oil portrait of some historical military dude, wooden furniture, and (!) animated warrior woman. Earthy Renaissance Warrior Vamp?

    3-4: Gandalf, sniper, galaxy, dilapidated Russian building, horror movie still. Intergalactic Fantasy Superspy? :P

    This is fun... gotta keep going with this experiment for a while. 

  • cheryl replied 5 years ago

    You are too adorable for words. Awesome game and I hope you feel better soon. 

  • Debra replied 5 years ago

    You are too funny, hope you feel better soon :)

  • annagybe replied 5 years ago

    Ok your outfit looks good. I am going to chide you for going to work sick. You just exposed your coworkers and customers, not cool.

  • rae replied 5 years ago


    • I stayed home two days during one of our busiest times, while short-staffed 3 people.  
    • We have other coworkers who have been working with lingering coughs or stuffy noses and not complaining. 
    • Everyone with kids said the guideline is to keep them home until 24 fever-free hours have passed, and I did follow that guideline, much to my monetary detriment. 
    • I do not have any paid time off yet, and I do not share funds with my husband, so this job is my only source of income, and this is one of the highest-selling times of the year. I already gave up multiple time-sensitive sales appointments to other stylists because of the cold. 
    • Most colds are contagious before symptoms onset and I would have exposed my coworkers already.
    • And sinus infections don't spread the same way as cold of the flu, plus can take over 2 weeks to clear. I get the same thing every year... a short cold that passes in 1-2 days but causes my sinuses to get infected and take around 2 weeks to clear up completely. If any one is ready to buy me a 2 week vacation for the common good, I would gladly jump at the chance...

    Ok, sorry, didn't realize the extent of your situation. Thanks for explaining.
