Whole lotta labia.
|[||how ya feelin'?
Netflix just recommended "LA Confidential" and "Mary Poppins."
Presumably not in the same evening as that would give one the most wretched kind of whiplash.
This morning is boring, my lower back still hurts so I didn't go to the gym, my Christmast tree is gorgeous, my boyfriend is remarkably silly, and I have this stupid office lunch to go through.
The story thing from yesterday is still in effect.. let me know if you'd like to hear anything. And be thinking of me from 12 to 2 when I have to be happy happy fun girl with the co-workers I've never really liked.
"... and then I was coming down the esculaters and there was this pretty girl smiling at me, but she had a friend with her so I was like, 'naw... can't be her' and then they started giggling and nudging each other and staring at me and I was like... 'OMG IT IS HER!' and then I tackled her. The end."
I completely adore you... you know that, right?

Re: When you met wilful
So it goes like this... I started working at an internet company and the office manager was a friend of a friend.. She and I started talking and I noticed a picture on her desk of her in a bodice. "Nice bodice.." I said. She asked me if I did reenactment stuff and I mentioned that I'd been going to the renfaire for years and done some SCA stuff in college but hadn't liked the local group.
"Oh," she said, "you HAVE to come play with us. We're much better than they are. There's an event coming up this weekend. It's just a little local thing.. you must come."
So.. I did. She was Mym and it was Storvik's Yule Revel. I put on my best renfaire garb (all I had at the time) and got in the car. I wore a cream gauze chemise, a green gauze skirt, and a green plaid bodice cut under my bosoms. I thought I looked ok, but knew it wasn't entirely appropriate.. still.. I was going to check out the local group and didn't figure on staying long.
Mym met me at the door and escorted me into the hall.. she introduced me to a few people and then into the kitchen where the clan was hanging out. She introduced me around.. "This is Mac, don't mind her if she belches. This is my husband. This is Caitlin."
I stuck out my hand "Pleasure to meet you."
"It's nice to meet you too. Are you aware that your chemise is see-through?"
I blinked. "Yes?"
"Good, I don't have a problem with it, I just didn't want you to be doing it accidentally." She gave me this huge grin and then she went back to chopping veggies.
The rest is like some kind of fairy story. ;)
Mary Poppins is my goto movie when I'm really down. Bert is my one true love in all the world. le sigh.
Melly, you are at lunch, and hopefully they are plying you with good food and alcohol. But I've been thinking of you, in case you read this later, and it helps to know that. *hugs*
The food was fabulous... sole cooked with a parmesean crust and served with lemon caper sauce.. they got me chocolate cake for dessert as a going-away thing.. which sucked, because I don't like chocolate.. I specifically don't like semi-sweet chocolate. But oh well.
And my secret santa gift was a matching glove/hat/scarf set which rocked.
