Mornin’

bubblegum

I’m at work at an ungodly hour, waiting to schlep boxes downtown to a place located three blocks from my apartment, so I thought we could use some silliness to start us off today. Bubblegum!

By the way, it’s surprisingly hard to find good bubblegum pictures on the net. Or maybe I’m just persnickety in the hours before coffee. Hmm.

Note: I wrote all the above and prepped everything and then was called away to be a good little worker bee. I’m too lazy to rewrite everything to reflect the actual time, so let’s just pretend it’s 8 am. Or that we’re on Hawaii time. That work for you?

Dollhouse tunic

Really love this tunic from Neneee’s Etsy shop. So playful! I could totally see myself wearing this, but I vaaaaaaaaguely suspect I would look absolutely ludicrous in it. Such a tragedy. Shall have to think of some other way of drawing inspiration from this look, something that doesn’t involve me looking like I’m  trying to look like a two-year old. Or maybe I’ll just rock a look like this, throw up some pigtails and just revel in making a laughing-stock of myself.

Or then again… nah. I’ll stick to random acts of public, shameless song and dance to cover that basis. I’m enough of a fool as it is.

BTW, oh three readers, posts this week are likely to be on the sporadic side. Crazy times at work. It’s a tough life, being a photocopy-wrangler.

If you’re anything like me, you might occasionally have trouble defining yourself, figuring out who you really are. You might be able to don an identity for a day, depending on who you’re meeting and what you’re doing, but come time to label yourself in one manner or another, your mind goes blank. Thank goodness that we have perfume around to define us in ways that we cannot.

These last three really dig into the meat of what it means to be a woman. Thank heavens for perfume!
