i tried to do a week in pictures thing once… it just proved to me that i was actually too lazy to post WHILE the week was going on. so instead, i think “last week” might be a little easier.
in GREAT NEWS, holiday cocktail lounge is re-opening! the bad news is, i think it’s turning into an actual cocktail bar. like, no booths. no beer lights. i think it’s turned schwanky! i’ll take what i can get, though. i’ll give it a whirl.
otherwise, most of last week i spent being miserable because my roommates boyfriend’s alarm clock has been now going off at 4AM vs. the usual 5AM… aaand i’m just really sick of sleeping with earplugs in my ears. however, my roommate did in fact tell me she’ll be completely out of my apt by the 31st, which is nice. i’ll have peace and quiet again! WOO!
i started packing stuff last saturday… mainly my “fun stuff” aka toys, all fridge magnets, cold coffee cups, dolls, some containers, random shit hanging up around my room/house, all of my heavy duty plastic kitchen stuff (cutlery, cups, some plates), just ridiculous stuff that can come down that won’t give me horrible creative block if it’s out of sight. it felt really good and like i’m taking a step forward in leaving that hell hole.
most of last weekend (after running errands) was spent decorating my (black!!!1) christmas tree. i decided to go with black this year because of the eyeball ornaments. i found them at michael’s in sept/oct and figured they’d look great against a black tree. jes picked up the popsicle ornaments for me, and also the cool christmas candy/stained glass ornament we made together. oscy loves sleeping under the tree every night. i light up the fir scented candle and he lays on santa’s face and takes naps or watches the candle flicker. it’s super cute.
i still need a dang tree skirt…
same shit, different day, otherwise…
commute > work > commute > facetime boyfriend > watch “revenge” > ear plug misery, lol.
OH! and p.s.: my natural deodorant… it’s still going fantastical! i predominantly don’t smell (and i mean 99% of the time i don’t, but that 1% on a day you really break a sweat, you can just get a FAINT smell – but it’s never anything crazy/offensive) and only SOMETIMES do i have a reaction (mainly just turns red/itchy – but no rash – and it’s usually only if i apply it right after shaving).
in other words, i’m still not going back to regular deodorant anytime soon.
