Draggin' ass.

Boy, being a dragon is hard. I feel like I just have to be "on" all of the time, prepared for action at any moment. Action being breathing flames on anyone that i deem unsuitable for co-habtitation, scratching people with my massive claws and, of course, eating small townspeople as they scream for mercy. Obviously.

I have been wearing this costume all around the health center today. People see me and just start laughing, so I am thinking it is a pretty awesome costume. That, or pretty humiliating. I prefer to go with the first scenario.

The picture above is one example of blatant sexual harrassment, I just wanted to show that it happens to dragons as well. You can't just get a fine piece of tail like that just because you feel like you are entitled to it. I later beat her with my tail to teach her a lesson. Boom.

Sweater Thursdays

This morning I tried on about 5 sweaters before settling on this one. I enjoy the buttons. I know they aren't toggles, but I think they give it a colorful je ne sais quoi. I am also going for a different look with the picture, sort of a spontaneous webcam pic where i am full of motion.

My sweater collection is quickly becoming unacceptable. They are too long, too big, too ugly. I don't know what to do about this because I am saving up for an iphone and can't spend money. You may have to deal with repeats. I am just warning everyone now.

This sweater, while the pick today, has one fatal flaw. It is short, almost a belly sweater. It is from a company that makes high waisted pants, so I think they would balance each other out if worn together. But, today I am wearing low rise jeans. Big mistake. Big. Thus necessitating the donning of the lab coat.

Sweater Thursdays

This sweater comes to you thanks to the letter B. B for Banana Republic and B for Bruise, because I get to show it off. 8 days and going strong. I always thought my bruising was fairly normal, but the more comments I get, the more I am beginning to think i was, and am, sorely mistaken. I am only in a skirt so I could wear this light sweater, made of cotton with some silk thrown in for good measure. I think the overall look I am going for is sophisticated chick who don't take no crap from nobody.

Bica ≠ muenster

We are back for a second installment with this post. I was at my favorite store, talking to my favorite cheese man, and he presented me with this sign. The sign of BICA. "Made with cow, sheep, and goat milk. Complex, yet not overpowering." He told me they were never going to sell it again, and since I am the only one who likes the bica, I could have the sign. How thoughty. Just because no one bought, you never want to sell it again? I think that is slightly short sighted, but I am no cheese buyer, so I have no control. I think the people of west hartford, connecticut are losing out on one of the great cheeses of portugal, maybe of the world. At least I have the sign to remind me that there are great cheeses out there, even if they are unappreciated.

I think I have an imaginary abusive spouse

Maybe someone punches me at night. The bruises are getting out of control, soon my skin will be purple and mottled all over my body. Right now, I wear them as my badge of courage, including my now partially paralyzed lip (see previous post). I tell people they are from soccer, but perhaps I have someone who hides in my closet until night falls and comes out and applies direct pressure to various parts of my body.

This picture is Day 6 post bruising, I am sure it will only get prettier.

fat lip.

Last night I was elbowed in the face during soccer and got a fat lip. The ladies on the field told me they couldn't even really notice. I think they were lying. tell me what you think.
I asked my boss, and the first thing he said was Oh my god, but he was apparently referring to something on my forehead. great.

Coffee Shop Going/laundry Doing Saturday mornings?

Perhaps we can have laundry mornings on saturdays as well as sweater thursdays? I need more routine in my life. I should be doing my laundry every week, but most of the time i stretch it out, wearing my jeans until they can stand on their own. Here is a picture of me at tisane, a nice little coffee shop next to Wash Tub, which lures me with its plethora of 30lb washers. Fantastic. Do you know how much laundry you can put into a 30lb washer? well 30 lbs, but that is a lot of laundry. So i go for capacity and for the crackheads.
One time I gave a guy 50 cents and he said, that's all you got? Yeah, that's it man. These quarters are pretty precious and I am not going to give them all away. What am I, stupid? I want to dry for more than 8 minutes. really. I don't like it when beggars hit me up and then are ungrateful. They probably make more money than i do. I at least want a good story. There is a man that works this block who has a whole scenario going about how he just got out of prison and he needs to get to his mom's house. He just needs 3 more dollars for a cab.... This guy is good. I have heard him work this on several people and he is spot on. He wears slightly outdated clothes, making sense if he had gotten out of prison and only had his lakers jersey to keep him warm. Who likes the lakers anymore? He had his hair in thick corn rows, like the corn rows you would have your nancy do for you. I think he was also wearing high tops. It would have been perfect if they were reeboks, jumping jack flash style, but you can't have it all.
So if it isn't Saturday morning laundry doing, maybe just random picture taking saturday during your daily routine.

Sweater of the Moment Thursdays

I am following the advice of jobonga by putting on a sweater today. I couldn't really wear it except for this picture because it is too hot here. But, I wore it. That is important. I picked it because it goes with my shirt and it allows me to wear gold hoops. I love hoops.

Graduate students are quite awkward and I think I am becoming more and more like them by the second. The long pauses, the glances to the right and the left, the grimace when no one is saying anything. I just say this because we had lunch with a speaker and I went through all of these gestures through out the hour of me not really saying anything. Which is painful for me, you all know that.
I tried for awhile to get the others to become more social and less toolish, but it isn't working. I think this means I must adapt to be more like them.
