I have been adventuring and therefore delinquent as usual, I see.

First there was a brief flying visit with [livejournal.com profile] snowqueenofhoth in New York. (UNIQLO, Organic Coffeehouse fro-yo, and karaoke--very fancy, I even wore a dress.) )


The following week I took a tiny tiny plane to visit my friend M. in the Adirondacks. We talked about poetry a lot; a lake tried to devour me; it was great. )


In between trips I caught a magnificent cold and got teary-eyed over the Declaration of Independence and the thought that people used to just WRITE like that. I mean, "When in the Course of human events..." BAM! Cue tears.

What writing gets you all teary at its sheer greatness?

Thanks to bizarre circumstances that could have been avoided if Jin actually had a competent management team for his American tour, I will be going to his New York concert on Sunday! (I bet that is not where you thought that sentence was going!)

[livejournal.com profile] mousapelli and I are flailing in preparation for Super Awesome Fun Times in the City. There will be karaoke! and accessorization! I am getting super excited, even though I’m not terribly familiar with Jin's new stuff. Still! There will be bagels. And possibly gold nail polish. And I have tons of thin gold ribbon left over from Halloween. Oh, the possibilities...

...

I showed up to an off-hours sales presentation today in an outfit I’ve been meaning to try out--black & off-white patterned sundress over 3/4 sleeve black shirt, black skirt underneath (for added length), new grey patterned tights, heeled boots. I think it worked pretty well--a cute but dressy vibe, inspired by this classy San Francisco scientist lady and her penchant for layering skirts and dresses all over the place.

I did not expect anyone to notice.

CO-WORKERS: Oh, wow. Do you have a date later?
FIONA: ...I--no, actually I don’t.
CO-WORKERS: You look... very put together. We are surprised and impressed.
FIONA: Hey, I don’t have to dress like a homeless hipster musician, you know.
CO-WORKERS (suspiciously): Are you sure you don’t have a date after this?
FIONA: ...it was laundry day? XD

...

A few days ago I watched 8uppers, the Kanjani8 movie. seven men. one baby. it's pretty clear who's in charge here. )
