Hey, so, if you liked that last one, have some more. Here's my Tumblr. It's not at all work safe. (Except when it is. Which it mostly isn't.)


A-Z of Goth meme

Look! Not dead!

Yeah, I don't post here anymore. I do miss it, but when I feel like writing, it's usually because I'm unhappy, so it's all bitching and whining. And no one needs that. Anyway, this caught my fancy, got it from Leah and Kim.

A) What accessories do you wear everyday?
My wedding band, and usually earrings.

B) What is your beauty routine?
Daily, I wash my face with Body Shop Seaweed face soap, then the Seaweed moisturizer and an eye cream. I try to put on basic makeup when I know I'm leaving the house - foundation, highlighter, eyeliner, mascara. It takes about 5 mins. When I go out, the makeup takes longer and involves blush, eyeshadow and brow powder. Someday, I'll learn contouring.

C) What was the last item of clothing (for yourself) that you purchased?
A knee length, black flared skirt from REI.

D) Do you use a dresser, closet, or both?

E) What type of earrings are in your ears right now?
Normal small sterling silver beaded hoops. I miss my 8ga lobe piercings, and I'd like to get them re-pierced at that size.

F) What type of figure do you have?

G) Do you wear glasses?
A couple days a month, when I take my contacts out.

H) What type of handbag do you carry?
I hate carrying purses, so I avoid it whenever possible. When I do wear one, I rotate between a few different ones. A traditional short handled style made of rubber, a basic leather bag and a new fancy brown leather convertible hip bag/cross body thing from Delicious Corsets.

I) What is your ideal style?
I aspire to classic with some edge. I fail.

J) What is your favorite brand of jeans?
Whatever brand accounts for the 12" difference between my hips and my waist and actually covers my ass and isn't too tight at the knees. So, basically, none of them.

K) Do you wear knee-high stockings?
No. Also, I think this question is mistaken, since knee high stockings would be trouser socks. And ugly. Knee high socks? Sometimes. Thigh high stockings? Almost never, and then only the kind you wear with garters.

L) Do you have to wear matching lingerie?
I used to prefer it, but now none of my pretty sets fit me, so … no.

M) Do you wear makeup?
Yup. It's fun and makes me prettier.

N) Do you wear nightgowns?

O) What outerwear do you put on when going out on a typical winter's day?
A wool coat, either long or hip length. A scarf if I'm wearing a v-neck.

P) What is your favorite perfume?
I prefer perfume oil, and usually the fewer notes the better. Most perfume goes all weird on me. I guess my favorite is a custom blend from Perfumed Dragon of Amber, sweet almond and cinnamon.

Q) Is your motto "quality over quantity" when it comes to clothing and accessories?
Meh. Kindof? I don't usually like cheap jewelry, but I prefer silver to gold so it's not like it's all fine jewelry.

R) Do you wear rain boots?
Nope. All the ones I've found don't fit my calves.

S) Do you wear socks or slippers when your feet get cold?
Socks. I find slippers weird.

T) Do you travel with a lot of luggage?
I try not to, but these days once I have my camera gear and my computer it ends up being more than I'd like.

U) What is your daily uniform?
Jeans and a t-shirt or hoody.

V) If you are married, did you wear a veil with your wedding dress? If not, how did you do your hair?
Not the first time, yes the 2nd time. Is the assumption that if you wore a veil, you had no hair? That's odd. Mine was back in a kind of low swirly bun thing, with a big wavy tendril left out. It was nice

W) Do you wear a watch?
Sometimes. I wish I remembered to put one on more often, I like them and have a few.

X) What item of clothing always makes you feel beautiful?

Y) What is your favorite type of yarn?
Something teal that feels nice? I dunno, I neither knit nor crochet.

Z) Do you prefer zippers or buttons?
For jeans, I prefer button fly. Just because. Otherwise, it's style dependent.


Last Saturday

Writer's Block: Pet central

Some animal rights activists are fighting to replace the term 'owner' with 'guardian' to convey a more balanced relationship between a person and her or his pet. Do you agree or disagree with the importance of this mission?

Exactly who is this supposed to make feel better? The dog, cat, goldfish, horse, whatever really doesn't give a fuck what you call it. The person in the equation knows how the relationship works, so again, what difference does it make? This whole issue is ludicrous.
If you're in the U.S., will you watch all or part of the Superbowl? Do you have a favorite team? If you're not American, what do you think about Superbowl Sunday?

I will not watch any of the Superbowl. I hate football.


So, yes, if you have no plans for New Years Day, you should consider driving about 2 hours North to Lancaster, PA and go to a gallery opening. You will see lots of beautiful art of beautiful women, and even some beautiful men. It'll be fun. I'm showing one piece that I put in Artomatic, but the other 3 are new(ish). And, it doesn't start until 5pm, so you have plenty of time for your hangover to wear off.

Pete and I are getting a room at the Lancaster Marriot. Rooms are $119/night. Just sayin'.

Wedding pictures!


Eeee! They're finally up!

Also, I know more than 4 people took pictures. I would love it if the rest of you could add yours to the flickr pool so I can see too!
