Too Tired, Didn’t Go

Ever had one of those days? Yeah, me too.

And then I collapsed.

Culture Shock ends today – don’t forget to stop by before it closes and shop! Donation items support Doctors Without Borders (in case you haven’t heard).

There really isn’t anything else like it…

My best friend spent most of the day controlling my television, which can be one of the most boring things ever. While we have a lot in common, she has a penchant for watching reality TV that can be just painful. There’s only so many times I can watch the Real Housecats of San Bernadino before I want to claw my eyes out. It usually leaves me sitting around wondering when can we ever do something else.

There MUST be something better to watch...

Not that I do much other than watch TV when I’m alone. But I think that has a lot to do with my never getting to choose what’s on my television – like ever. When I do get to choose, it’s almost always something on one of the history channels. There’s this channel – the whole channel is like a train wreck. It’s the “wealth” channel on cable. I don’t know if you’ve watched it, but it often has programs like you’d find on the history channel – you know, when it still showed stuff about history instead of reality shows. Anyway, it had a show on about Roman history and I couldn’t stop myself from watching. I tried, but I couldn’t stop.

Dubious

I’m a little dubious of their “sources” – it’s like facts had no bearing on the show.I’m not talking about little mixups, but mis-identifying emperors, or who built the Coliseum – you know, little things like that. They’re a TV show, they should check their facts – in my humble opinion. And where do they find their “academincs”? Seriously, who would hire these people? Sigh.

Hey…June?

A new dress from Celoe, new boots from Ingenue, and a long loved bag from Maitreya… what more could I ask for in life – okay, probably a lot (not having to work, all that good stuff) – but a fun outfit is definitely enough to make today a very good day.

On my way

I love mesh, it’s so wonderful. I know the drawbacks, and I’ve had a couple of problems with fitting, but I am very lucky in that I haven’t had to mod my shape much (well, once alpha layers are firmly in place). Although, I tend to think of little adjustments as the way different fabrics fit in the physical world. [Like wearing a wonderbra.]

In any case… I should also note that the mustard variation of the Jude boot is the Culture Shock donation item from Ingenue. Super cute!

Mustard

Okay, that was exhausting!

Leo

And then I’m all “rawr” and junk.

Rawr

Plank couture is new to me, although I’ve been aware of the store for a while, I haven’t picked anything up until now. They have a whole zodiac-related collection for Culture shock, and I grabbed one of everything. I love how the inspiration is obvious, but there is clearly so much creativity that goes into each product they put out.

Culture Shock is going on until May 26th – go check it out.
