i'll show you a god who falls down on the job.

though it's been difficult, i have learned a hard, big girl, lesson from this mess. said lesson?? i'd rather be honest, ethical and righteous than one of the cool kids. i'd rather retain my loyalty to what's Right and Proper than part of the boys' club. i dislike learning life-type lessons this way, but i suppose it'll be better in t he long run...

or something like that?

short versioned, it's better to be fighting the good fight than be liked by one's co-workers.


we had the first snow of the season yesterday, and, while it didn't stick to the ground, it was beautiful. that rare sort of snow that flies gracefully, all quiet and huge flakes. sigh. loves the damn snow...

the midnight showing of twilight was absolutely packed....perhaps 3-4 seats left un-filled? the movie was good enough, but i really do wish they hadn't made it so bloody dis-jointed feeling. like, had i not read the books? yeah...i'd have been lost. scene to scene, it wasn't quite as linearly filmed as it could have been. i enjoyed pattinson as edward quite a bit, the eye candy factor being a nice plus to a weirdly accurate portrayal. though, i have to admit, even to myself, that his early scenes were a bit..well, edward read as less trying to avoid bella and more as possibly slightly mentally defective. i spent more time in the theatre laughing than i think i was supposed, some parts were just so silly!! the sparkly scene? yeah..special effects is so effing fired. they couldn't have screwed that bit up more. he looked like a wet peach, a weirdly lit up something, but not what i expected. judging by the groans surrounding me, i don't think it was quite what others were expecting, either.

i spent this morning listening the to movie soundtrack, being silly, packing up orders, and trying to get excited about thanksgiving. it's not proving easy....bleh. HATES thanksgiving.

my best girl was over for a bit yesterday, and ate some awesome los jalapenos with us. it was mellow and swell, both things i enjoy.

drifting, falling.

...or something along those lines.

left work ridiculously early yesterday, for no reason other than wanting to spend more time with the bug, and no desire to spend any more time near a bartender who is useless. well, not useless, perhaps, but definitely irksome.

not necessary for details, only the fact that there is, indeed, a boy's club, and that i am damned glad i am no part of the goddamn thing.


had a lovely afternoon wherein i spent my time watching a bunch of awesome ladies knit, and chatting and so forth. i got to meet a couple of people from the interwebs, and hey! they were swell. though, my social retardation manifested itself in a lot of nonsensical rambling, of that i am pretty certain.

bleh. go me!

the A-Z of my un-fashion.

A: What accessories do you wear everyday?
wedding ring, lip ring, septum ring, conch, tragusX2, orbital & 3 circ. barbells in ears.

B: What is your beauty routine?
geez. what beauty routine? take a shower, moisturiser on my face, brushed teeth, mouthwash, lotion on legs & arms, deodorant, perfume. if i am working i wear make up, if i'm not, i don't bother.

C: What was the last item of clothing (for yourself) that you purchased?
winter coat, blazer, heeled boots.

D: Do you use a dresser, closet, or both?
both, but mostly the floor for dirty, basket for clean. terrible...

E: What type of earrings are in your ears right now?
see above...

F: What type of figure do you have (measurements)?
uh..? how about a bunch of grapes? yes. exactly that.

G: Do you wear glasses?
yes...the contact lens experiment was a profound failure.

H: What type of handbag do you carry?
depends....i used to have several vintagey ones i carried, but scrapped that when i moved to philly. mostly i carry a messenger bag now, so that i can carry the maximum amount of crap.

I: What is your ideal style?
something along the lines of lazy gothabilly?? i dunno. when i was thin, i wore vintage (1930's-40's) dresses and a lot of velvet and spooky shit. now, not so much...lazy days are cuffed jeans and a blouse, fancy days are skirts and nicer tops.

J: What is your favorite brand of jeans?
right now i fucking love the bitten line. the dark wash, short, premium straight leg jean is where it's at!

K: Do you wear knee-hi stockings? i do wear knee high socks & over the knee socks, though.

L: Do you *have* to wear matching lingerie?
in that it's matchingly clean? if so, then yes...

M: Do you wear makeup?
yes. most of the time. eyebrows and eyeliner anyway...

N: Do you wear nightgowns?
sometimes. mostly it's yoga pants & a tee shirt.

O: What outerwear do you put on when going out on a typical winters day?
hoodie or sweater, dickies jacket, gloves. i just bought an actual winter coat, though, so i am sure i will wear that now! huzzah!

P: What is your favorite perfume?
fresh sugar lychee, fresh sugar lemon, BPAL knecht ruprecht, BPAL embalming fluid, BPAL baron samedi, BPAL stardust, demeter sugar cookie. i wear different types of scents during different seasons...

Q: Is your motto "quality over quantity" when it comes to clothing and accessories?
i wish....:(

R: Do you wear rain boots?
ew, no..

S: Do you wear socks or slippers when your feet get cold?
slippers....i am a spaz, so i can't wear socks on the wood floors, or else i will fall down. seriously. it's absolutely ridiculous.

T: Do you have a set of travel luggage?
i have a large, relatively nice suitcase that my mom got me several years ago for xmas. i use that to go back home once a year.

U: What is your daily uniform?
depends...if i'm not working? then it's slippers, yoga pants, sweater, tee shirt. if i am, it's usually chucks, jens, some sort of top.

V: If you are married, did you wear a veil with your wedding dress? If not, how did you do your hair?
we didn't have a wedding, so no.

W: Do you wear a watch?
yes. everday....i have 3 i rotate through. a plain, men's silver timex, a red, wide-band paul frank julius watch, and a dracula swatch.

X: What item of clothing always makes you feel beautiful?
none currently. i am calling this my "fug phase".

Y: What is your favorite type of yarn?
to do what with? i don't know how to knit, man...

Z: Do you prefer zippers or buttons?
anything that keeps the clothing on when i want it on, and makes it easy to get off when i want it off.
