28.3.10

back in action.

(I was going to go all "guess who's back back again" for the title, but I decided that "action" just made me sound like a superhero. Therefore, I couldn't resist. Maybe I shall note that there is a silent "KAPOWBAM" for good measure?)

But yes. As you can see from my last few lamities (read: lame posts), I've been venturing off in Asia. A great experience, but I'm on four hours of jet legged sleep and I've been exhausted since noon, so perhaps I will share those thoughts later? Plus, Canada decided to pour (Ha-ha. You'll get it later...) some of its usual bad weather - this time, rain (...get it now? Pour, rain... Funny? No? Yeah, I know. I'm TIRED OKAY?!) It really was great, but I'm honestly going to crawl under the covers and maybe watch an episode of Ugly Betty and call it a night at 9:00 so yeah. JET LEG = bad idea. (As with fake wi-fi at airports, non-universal plug ins, non-universal languages. But maybe that's a good thing? Gah, TOO MUCH THINKING BRAIN HURTS.)

Bought muchos of pastel outfits and the likes, but something about rainy days screams "heyyyy colourrrrrrr" so heyyy, colourrrr.

Bought this dress in Thailand. A longer length, but it's asymmetrical which is fun stuff.

I close to neverEVER wear scarfs. But never say never because hey, would ya look at that? I'm wearing a scarf! Mostly because I liked it with the dress. But still. A scarf! Rain is a good excuse to bundle up in piles of layers and all that jazz because, you know, it's rain. Wet, cold rain..

Oh hi! This qualifies as one of those times where Paint would be handy on Macs. Because then I would have added a speech bubble with the letters MWAHHAHAH on it. Because I look evil. But the whole point of this is hiseemyglasses. (Usually wear contacts, forgot to put in solutions, boring story. Sorry.)

^ I imagine pikatchu would look like this in Hell. Just sayin'

I basically never wear heels. Those these don't REALLY qualify as heels. More like "clonkers." So hey guys, meet my clonkers. Clonkers, meet these guys. (My ma and my halfies these. Bought them in NYC. The guy that sold them to us was my telepathic soul mate, as we were wearing the EXACT same colours AND he had my dad's name! Coincidence? I THINK NOT. signsignsigns.)

Look at that! It even matches my socks. (As my sister eagerly pointed out. Weirdo.)

Scenic shots. Of the rain. I ain't lying to you guys. It really was raining. That umbrella isn't just for LOOKS you know!

HEY IT EVEN LOOKS LIKE ITS RAINING. See the motion? It's pourin' baby. Slash that's the umbrella moving and WOAH do I look smug or what? It's the only shot that had the effect. Of rain, I mean. My sister's commands of "hold the umbrella, but twirl, but not that, twirl that, in front, but there" didn't really filter through my mind so bam. Smug face it is.

So yay?! First real post in weeks? Woot woot? Sorry it's such a downer of a post, but jet lag and rain and first day of school tomorrow and etc etc seem to have that effect on me. So accept my apology? I demand you to.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
