This morning I’m pretty sure I became someone’s story about how young queers are doomed because we have no idea of our history or our circumstances. A guy in the elevator looked me up and down, decided that if I wasn’t a lesbian, I was probably at least on the good side of the issue, and started to talk to me about something Justice Ginsberg said about skim milk. Since this happened during one section of one day of a court case the ruling of which isn’t even expected until June at the earliest, I had no clue what he was talking about. Then he tried to tell me about the differences in legal arguments between the DOMA and Prop 8 cases, and just as my eyes started to glaze over, he said his goodbyes and moved on. So, my apologies to any actual lesbians, I confess I didn’t even know the names of the two ladies who’s inheritance tax issue brought DOMA to the court’s attention. In the future I will endeavor to be better at walking around with short hair.

I was doing some manual labor around the office today, so I wore some old grungy clothes. One thing I have learned is that vans with no socks are not such a good on-your-feet-all-day-lifting-heavy-things shoe choice.
Sweater was bought on the street in San Francisco
Patches are from various places
Dead Kennedys Shirt patched with plaid fabric and was given to me by Katy’s little sister Shery;’s high school boyfriend. Forgot his name
Blue undershirt is from Target
Black Corduroy pants are from The Gap
Skull patterned Vans are from the Vans store
So, better late than never, here is my very special Halloween What I Wore. The “spikes” are little triangles of fabric filled with pillow fluff. The tail is also filled with pillow fluff.
Green hoodie from Target
Teal shirt is from The Gap
Tan skirt from Torrid
Green leggings are from K-mart (these were really baggy so I had to take about an inch off each leg in order for them to fit right)
Stripey socks are from We Love Colors, and are reviewed here
Green shoes are from Vans
So I’ve basically been wearing variations of this outfit since Friday, and it’s Sunday now. Don’t worry, except for Saturday, I was only outside (and therefore in clothes) for a couple of hours. So I guess I could classify this as my post-thanksgiving weekend outfit. I just couldn’t muster the energy to put together anything else.
Today Ben and I went to Pasadena to take my Grandma to lunch, and also to do some Christmas shopping. I know I was supposed to be buying things for other people, and I did (I swear) but I also had to get this adorable hat for myself because it was on sale and it was so cute and calling my name.
Turquoise hoodie from the Salvation Army
Scarf from somewhere that I have forgotten

Hey guys, it’s been a terrible, gray bitchy day today. For some reason that prompted me to write several love notes to my boyfriend. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, I was done with their shit.
Anyway, I noticed that a lot of the pieces I use in my outfits over and over for came from thrift stores, and I also realized that I had considered myself too busy to go thrifting for a really long time. So last Saturday I hit the Salvation Army and came away with a nice little score for $25 bucks. So expect that some new thrift store finds will probably be showing up in my posts.
Ignore the expression, I’m just sulking about how late it is.
I bought these shoes with some money my Dad gave me for Easter in 10th grade. Best $60 I ever spent on clothes. Right here I am saying “Ben, make sure you get my shoes.”
