I did dress up yesterday evening, though I told Disco that we really needed to honor our Celtic heritage by finding an oak grove and dancing sky-clad instead. The Plaidman said it was too cold for that, so we were "saved". Anyway....Disco wanted to be a grown-up Merida, and I had a plan to be Rowena Ravenclaw. We went to Performance Studios over on Thompson Lane and just had a blast picking out our gowns. I did Rowena at work on Friday, using a wooden knitting needle as my wand. But as we got into our gowns Saturday evening, Disco & I decided we had to be Merida and her mother, Queen Eleanor. If you haven't seen Brave, you might not know, but these are the two main characters of this wonderful film. So, without further ado, I give you Queen Eleanor and Princess Merida:
Today I did a little sewing, by hand, to repair the waist band in my black trousers. I don't know if that was worth the effort, the trousers are so big that I have to pin them in back to keep them on!
Oh, here's some of the bling I wore this past week, leading up to Halloween:
Hmm, I cropped & enlarged the one on the left, and I'm still not sure you can see what it is! It is a little articulated skeleton earring, just the cutest things! The big golden object is actually a perfume bottle on a cord, the perfume being Poison by Christian Dior. I won this little bauble ages ago, in a drawing at the Green Hills Cain-Sloan department store. Let us now have a moment of silence for the loss of one of Nashville's great old stores....ok, light 'em if you got 'em.
Friday I dressed for Halloween & went to work! What a hoot! Christina came over to my cubicle, and brought me an early Christmas present: a selfie stick! I am quite tickled, although I can't get the shutter button on the stick to work -- may be just a function of old puny hands, or I've not got the setting right on the phone...bummer either way. Disco says I should take it in to work tomorrow, and see if Christina can get it to work. I think that sounds like a sneaky way to get her picture on here, so I will tell her so up front -- don't like surprising people!
