Me + Mpule. Former Miss Universe 1999, the first black African to be crowned the title and UN activist, visits Ogilvy. Her host? Yours truly——- she was lovely. To hear her talk about women in agriculture! Wow. We did a video conference with a client and former senator. While giving her a tour after, I asked if I could interview her. She cracked up! And then she opened up. Details to come… (at Ogilvy & Mather)

Guy Smokes eCigarette on Train - Gets Tons of Eye Rolls

Taking 1 local uptown 7pm Tuesday. A guy across from pulls out an ecig and while reading, takes some casual puffs, exhaling his faux smoke.

I was shocked at the faces of disgust - by all types of people - in his surrounding area.

Pic of the culprit and eye roller #7 in far left. Too bad I got this photo AFTER everyone got off the car because they were so pissed/had to go somewhere.

What happens when you work at an ad agency.

I was asked to be a guest in the photo of the lovely lady’s daily. I’m not a drone, so I agreed of course.

Photographer Justine liked my shirt and red nails. Mid-pose, senior exec Peter walks in the hallway, befuddled by me and Sammi. To which we responded, “Get in!”

And this is what happened next….

Reblogged from #WWSW What Would Sammi Wear? 

whatwouldsammiwear:


a picture is worth a thousand words is how the old phrase goes, but the real life version also has a lot to say when you insert peter and rose. we call this “being one with the wall while gaining sammi’s perspective.” just a pretty awesome candid, which was not even our objective! so if you are wondering if work is a place that we genuinely like to be. well just look at this picture and then ask a question that isn’t as easy to see. i love guest posts and so does sammi so we invite you to join if you dare…but guest or no guest, we will keep on telling you what would sammi wear!  #wwsw: flannel from #forever21. jeans from #americaneagle. sneaks from #levis. #justinecudelphotography

I Almost Saw Jon Stewart

Some people’s parents tell them, “When you grow up, you can be president!”

But my mom always said, “Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be on Jon Stewart!”

In our suburban house in Georgia, Jon Stewart was king. No fighting during Jon Stewart. Everyone come and sit down/eat in the kitchen/stay up a little later, it’s Jon Stewart.

So IMAGINE my excitement when my manager at work tells me two months ago, “Rose I got you and my other direct reports tickets to Jon Stewart on March 25th.”

FAST FORWARD.

Picture me on the morning of March 25th: Selecting outfit to wear, thinking of conversation topics with Jon Stewart while commuting on the subway, making a SIGN with GLITTER so Jon Stewart will be touched, and then of course, ask to chat before the show gets going.

Picture me at 3pm, March 25th: My manager and coworkers have a conflict and can’t go. I precede to ask the ENTIRE fourth floor if anyone wants to go with me as I have three tickets, a sign, and carefully selected outfit to see resident family Reid idol.

NO ONE WANTS TO GO.

I walk 5 blocks north to the Jon Stewart show, alone, and when I get there the bouncer tells me no such luck, I had to be there at 2:30pm. Key information I never had.

Despondent and depressed, I find a bench across the street in front of an auto shop. I start eating the cookies I brought for my manager and coworkers.

A guy who works at the auto shop sits down next to me and says, “Some days, I can’t stand working here.”

And then I gave him a cookie.
