I’ll just say this: it does not inspire confidence when the public restroom stall you enter has a plunger in the corner. Not that it stopped me, because obviously there was a reason to be there. And it didn’t fulfill its dire promise, but still.
Had to go into work for a half-hour meeting. So, I had to drive in and back for just the one meeting. This does not make much sense, but what do I know.
On the plus side, I did get my microphone today. I haven’t plugged it in and tested it yet, but it’s made it to the house. And I visited Spirit Halloween. I went into a bit of a drance and spent a little more money than I should, but they had the most gorgeous beaded shawl in the 20’s section. And I highly recommend the art on their tarot cards. They’re a little dark-side, but beautiful. And it’s a Halloween store, so I couldn’t help but pick up a few other things.
Including a pair of neon pink fingerless gloves from the 80’s section. Seriously, I lived through that era. I needed them.
I must applaud their retro 50’s/60’s alien section. They had little silver deely boppers and a wonderful ray gun. It’s an underserved market for costuming. And can be so adorable. If I were going to do something other than go to work, I would totally have put together something like that.
Jumping back in time to the JoAnn’s visit yesterday, there was this most beautiful dusty rose with a touch of sparkle stretch fabric and an overlay fabric with the same color pallet, and I figured out what I want to do with it. I need to figure out the actual dress pattern, but I think I might be able to pull it off for a reasonable amount. (The overlay material is $30/yd. I can’t manage that, but I could maybe to half a yard and use it for a vest accent as opposed to an overskirt. And now I’m thinking that I could just do a shirt and not even do a full dress. Oh, I need to check through the patterns in the basement STAT.)
Other than that, today has basically been me writing out my Halloween cards. I’m proud of myself for actually getting something done ahead of time. I even have Halloween stamps to put on them that were delivered today. I’m debating whether or not to send them out on Monday, but I think I’m going to do that. Just so they’re to everyone at the beginning of October as opposed to the end. And I have a sneaking suspicion that a few of them have the wrong address on them, which will let me weed out the problems before the end of October and before Christmas card season. That’s my next random project that needs to fit into the middle of everything.
The Washington Post finally wore me down and I now have a digital subscription. I looked at two headlines and my blood pressure skyrocketed. What have I done to myself?
