This is probably my favorite skirt

Funny (embarrassing) thing about this outfit:

I didn’t realize until I went to the bathroom at church (and had been walking around sans my coat for about ten minutes) that this shirt… uhm… it’s a little see-through, and even with my slip/top beneath it, you could see some other underthings that were definitely not part of the shirt.

I was very glad that I had worn a coat today. Suffice it to say that I put it on immediately and didn’t take it off again till I got home.

And THEN… when I got home, as I was writing my little blurb on Chictopia, I spilled coffee all over my shirt.

This book makes me laugh. It’s titled “The Gashlycrumb Tinies” and recites the alphabet thus: “A is for Amy who fell down the stairs, B is for Basil assaulted by bears…” etc. I find it hilarious.


I was having fun with props today.

    I want that book.

    And this post made me tired. Time lines kill me. And accuracy. And trying to come up with logical reasons for characters’ actions that need to happen in order to move the story along.


    Although I’m still excited for you and wishing all the best!

      You SHOULD want this book. It’s the best book ever. (well…)

      I’m sorry it made you tired. I’m just really antsy to be able to actually start EDITING things. But that’s part of why I printed it out– if I were reading it on my computer, I’d already be rewriting it. 😀 Impatience!

    I love the top! I’d have loved it in blue…navy blue.

    Good luck with the editing. It sounds so hard! And as long as it’s just finger guns that’s fine….I think…

      Ooh, it would be really pretty in blue as well!

      Thank you. And yeah, finger-guns aren’t very harmful. Unless they’re loaded with rubber bands, but I don’t have any handy, so…

    “The Gashlycrumb Tinies” sounds amazing. I want it. And I can just picture you reading that book and laughing hysterically, because . . . you just find morbid things amusing like that.
