It doesn't happen all the time, which I guess makes it all the more precious when it does occur.
Today started out pretty lazy. I woke up at around 8:40ish due to a text from JB saying that he had a fun time at the movies. Then after I ate breakfast I busied myself with cleaning my room and doing laundry. Tidying up my room is always therapeutic for some reason... Also, I always seem to find things that I've forgotten about, like my first Harry Potter shirt that I got in the 8th grade!
I can still fit in it too... sort of. It's a little tighter in the chest area than what I remember, so it'll just have to be a "wear at home" type of shirt. I don't want to besmirch the brilliance of Harry Potter with skankyness.
From 2-8ish I ran around town with Rebekka doing random things. We went to Books-A-Million like we usually do and read magazines and gossiped about people and girly things. For fun (and added blog content) I decided to document our reading choices.
|Le me on the top, and Rebekka below.|
One of my favorites from tonight's exchange was a story explaining why Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson with the director of Snow White and the Huntsman. According to the article, in nature, peahens like to steal peacocks from their mates because their appeal is higher than that of a loan bird. In a human case study, women viewed pictures of men alone as well men with another woman, and it was found that most of the women found the men in the couple picture more attractive than that of the singular men. Apparently they are more appealing because they've already proven themselves to have desirable qualities that make other women want to mate with them.
After a bit of discussion in the aisles of Toys R Us , Rebekka and I came to the conclusion that the article was full of shit. We're not birds. We're human beings with complex thought and reasoning, and using examples in nature is just a cop out. Bitches will be bitches, and they will steal your significant others if they can. I mean, whenever I find out that a guy has a girlfriend I'm just like, "Okay, we can still be friends, but let's keep a respectable distance between us so that nothing is misconstrued. Also, broski, did you see the newest Mythbusters episode?"
Gotta respect the girl code.
Anyway, I also bought more yarn. I started a scarf after my last post, but I ended up running out of yarn before I was finished so I decided to buy more. Sadly, Hancock Fabrics was selling the yarn for $6.99 and being the Jew that I am I refused to pay that much for 102 yards of yarn, so Rebekka and I journeyed to Walmart to see if they had the same yarn, but at a lower price (plus, she let me use her employee discount!). When we arrived I was sad to see that they indeed carried the brand of yarn, but not the color. Instead of leaving empty handed I bought a different type of yarn. It's a golden yellow color and it's SO SOFT. As soon as I picked it up I envisioned myself wearing it with one of my navy dresses and sipping tea at a cafe. It's so autumnal. I'll have to post a picture of it later.
Also, an update on my painting: I did indeed sketch it out last night, but I ended up not liking the way it looked, so I erased all of it. So I'm back at square one. Ah well, the muses are fickle.
Oh, and before I forget, here's a picture of me eating the most delicious tortilla soup in my town:
The waiter came up just as the flash went off and started laughing and all I could say was, "I'm sorry! It's for my blog!" and he just laughed even more. Ah well, at least he was nice about the odd situation.
|Nom, nom, nom!|
To wrap up my splendid day I came home to a new episode of Doctor Who that was just BEYOND brilliant, as well as the news that I had won Lina's Polaroid camera giveaway for her blog's 5th birthday!
I'm very, very happy. I hope that tomorrow is equally as grand.
