No groundbreaking anything to report as per the ushe...around these parts. Well...other than Julia's discovery of the fun that open cabinets house and her parents' serious affinity for candy
and some rock chalking with our little jayhawk in her 2T sweatshirt...
We thought she had maybe broken some gummy ground on her first tooth due to the volume and quality of her cries after a few hours of wearing this outfit. Nope...just a case of way too tight jeggings as proven by the deep rivulets in the sides of her marshmallow legs. Sorry J.
Simon has been earning his keep by way of basement cleaning these past few days. He has happened upon some gold nuggets of my old clothing. Including (but not limited to) a very high-waisted pair of pants he likened to mom jeans (not pictured -- you're welcome) and these nice bell bottoms:
(yes I wore that shirt all weekend...no shower or laundering in this household)
I'm glad I kept them around for a couple of reasons. The first being that they are "Street" brand. . .quality for certain. The second is that they feature this not at all disturbing embroidered image on one of the back pockets:
A triple-armed tribal heroine? the goddess of faded denim? I'm almost scared to wear them in public for fear that I might offend someone.
and on a musical note...I'm pretty sure I'm going to rot in music taste hell and the entire universe will disagree but I don't understand all the Adele hype. She has a nice voice but her songs make me want to lay in a dark room face down in a vat of chocolate ice cream and dwell on cruel intentions and sadness for all eternity. Lyrics that liken herself to a crumbling fool, talk about her heart being beaten, scars of his love, wandering eyes and not being able to breathe under his thumb don't win the admiration of my happy and shallow heart. Give me something I can bob my head and cut a nice woven rug to...please. Whoever stomped all over her pretty heart really should be given a cut of the profits for all of the inspiration written all over her successful album.
