If I don’t get to eat until late at night, I’m going to go to bed hungry and be hungrier than usual the next day.

We had to go to Dallas last night, and thanks to extremely lovely traffic on the way to our destination, and then accomplishing what we needed to, it was 9 before we got to eat any dinner. And I’m cautious about eating that late, because I don’t want to be chundering all night, so I was still hungry when I went to bed.

And I’ve been ravenous all morning today.  Grrrr.

How do you typically dress to run errands? Do you think bloggers dress better or worse than “regular people”?


I have to look good whenever I leave the house. I’m lazy about wearing makeup, but I think I make up for it with my clothes and handbags.  Like Saturday, f’rinstance. I wore a really cute tunic with a pair of skinny jeans that are rapidly becoming too loose on me (see Lessons Learned the Hard Way, Part 914 for further details).

I’ve never felt comfortable wearing manky clothes, although I will wear them if I’m cleaning house (which means I virtually never wear them, but let’s not go there) just because I hate getting bleach or dirt or splashing cleaning solutions all over my good shirts. Once in a very long while I’ll make a Sonic run with my manky clothes on, but that’s because I never have to get out of the car so no one will see me except the car hop, who doesn’t care what I’m wearing as long as I give a nice little tip. Which I sometimes do, and sometimes don’t, because they don’t have a tip line on the credit card receipt, and it annoys me having to tip them because I’m sure they’re getting a decent wage but if it’s really hot or if it’s really cold, I’ll give a nice little tip anyway just because it’s such awful weather. Which has nothing to do with my appearance, but there you go.

As far as how bloggers dress, I figure they wear what’s comfortable and what they like. And they should so totally go for it!

Jehara is in town. Always cause for celebration.

Amethyst is coming. Always cause for celebration.

Izzy is coming. Always cause for celebration.

We have a hotel room for tonight and tomorrow night, so we can have our slumber (ha!) party. Always cause for celebration.

And at 12:01 tonight we will be sitting with hundreds of other people in crowded movie theatres, watching the last Harry Potter movie. Sort of cause for celebration, although its being the last of the movies is a sad thing, too. We’ve watched the actors grow from really cute kids to grown-ups, with some good acting chops. We’ve been with Harry, Ron, and Hermione as they’ve faced ever increasing powerfully evil forces, always fighting for what’s good and true and pure. We’ve been with J.K. Rowling ever since the first book came out, an unassuming little book that, had it not captured the public’s fancy in a serious way, might have been easily missed.

Always cause for celebration.

I love my sisters, all of them, and I’m so excited to have them here. There are some who aren’t able to come, and I’ll miss you.
