It’s after five! I’m in pajamas! I’m going to mix myself a martini! There is something to be said for non-work days.
Well, that was a bust -- GET IT?...
giddygirlie: smartgrrrl: […] More importantly, I bought PAJAMAS. Pajamas that were ON CLEARANCE. Its a sign that the pajama wedding should happen! They are soft and gray with white polka dots and I am putting them on as soon as I get home. Speaking of pajama wedding, my hair dresser said that she’s been crazy busy lately with brunch weddings. The same “wedding schedule” applies (i.e.,...

Ok, first of all, can bra manufacturers PLEASE stop lining multi-letter cup sized bras with that ridiculous foam? I do not require more padding. I got all the padding I need right here. *performs boob grab gesture ala dudes’ “suck it” ball grab gesture* So no, I didn’t get a wedding dress bra. Which is not to say the trip wasn’t eventful or productive! First I rode...
BRB going bra shopping
Because I’m trying my wedding dress on tomorrow — well, it’s not officially mine yet. It’s the only dress I’ve liked, by which I mean it’s the only dress I’ve seen that doesn’t make me want to vomit, so I’ve basically claimed it as mine already and figure this trying-on business tomorrow is just to figure out what size to get (I’m a dress...
I went to bed at 9:00 and slept straight through...
I finally feel rested. Plus, I have lots of Tumblr to catch up on while I drink my delicious coffee. You should also know that what woke me up was Gypsy breathing on me.
vegkat replied to your photo: I’ve been wanting to make this sweater since I… Beautiful! I love the color combo and the pattern is adorable! I wish I had the balls to try a sweater. You can dooooo eeeeeeet! I was more intimidated by using double points, and I’ve seen you use those. (Well, I’ve seen photographic evidence that you use them.) Sweaters are cake. Really...
levigator replied to your photo: I’ve been wanting to make this sweater since I… I kind of want to make this as a pullover and leave the steek area as a stripe. Is that weird? No! I kind of like the stripe, too. But I’m way more excited by the button possibilities.
License to Knit
I am at work. Now that I’ve been displaced as an editor (long story) I’ve been doing some … let’s say “event planning,” because that looks good on a resume, right? As does “liaising with noted authors and publishers,” correct? But things on the event planning front are coming to an end, and at this very moment I am unoccupied. I’ve been asked...
In which Jayne leaps from the dresser to the bed, after much prompting from Dan.
A remarkable achievement
I’ve managed to make it through the day without getting any major plot information about last night’s Mad Men episode, which I cannot watch until Dan gets home. I mean, I could watch it now. But he’s bringing the gin.
That's great, universe. Just when I'd run out of...

Lunch: Because I know you're all dying to know
I went with Thai. There’s a good place around here that has an excellent $7 lunch special. Had pad thai and veggie dumplings. Delicious.
I don't know what to have for lunch.
I've also be re-watching Sports Night
And I think I’m going to start saying, “What do I look like, I just sailed in from Minskapinsk?” on a regular basis.
In addition to being all phlegmy and congested, I have a huge zit on my upper lip and another one on my neck. How YOU doin’.
(You like how I slipped the fact that my birthday’s on Thursday in there? Pretty subtle, right?)
Spring is a dick
It’s just two months of “Am I sick, or is this allergies?” and then we’re straight on into “it’s too damn hot” season. For the record, I’m pretty sure I’m sick. Just in time for my birthday on Thursday, too. Thanks, me. Thanks a whole friggin’ lot.
Mad Men surprise
I like Megan more the second time around. A lot more. Huh.
I sang “Our Lips Are Sealed.” Afterward two dudes told me they’d never heard that song before.
I discovered a use for Rock Band!
It’s great for karaoke practice. So glad I didn’t get rid of this game. So there’s a Friday Confessional for you; I practice for karaoke. But in my defense, it’s with a live band and they’re very good, and it’s been probably over a year since I’ve gone on stage, and I’m probably making this out to be a bigger deal than it is, but hello, have we...
The thing about Draw Something
It’s the first time in recent memory that I’ve been having a total blast doing something I am bad at. This is a big deal for me. So thank you for continuing to play with me. (Not playing with me and wish you were? Start a game! I’m smartgrrrl.)
