Tragedy In Denim

My favorite pair of jeans is on their death bed and need a desperate patch to the back two pocket areas in order to save them.

I hope they can be saved without making them unwearable to classes. They're my most comfortable pair of jeans, even if they DO comes from the juniors department. Classic five pocket, mid rise and flared legs. I found this pair at a goodwill four years ago.

I might have to go hunting for a new pair. Even, though, yes I was bitching about needing new bras and that I really didn't think I should have to pay $50 for something from Nodstroms or Dillards.

Back to the jeans. Their (Pairs Blues) website says Khols carries them and the Khols website says they do carry that style. And I think I love Paris Blues even more for being carried at places like Sears and Khols and places like Macy's and Nodstroms.

Though I kind of want to wait to buy any jeans until I lose some weight and get in shape, which with all the walking I'll be doing across campus this semester shouldn't be the hardest thing in the world. I need to drop at least ten pound and firm up someplace. I do worry this will effect my yummy new suit, but I don't think it will effect the fit of the skirt too much. Even if I do drop those ten pounds I won't drop to an eight so I should be fine.

I was going to link to a picture of my suit by the website doesn't have it (damn it they'd better still have it in store because I want to buy the pant when I can use those $25 off cards they gave me). Which makes me fret and want to go into the store tomorrow to see if they still have that suit. If they do I'll see if they'll let me put the pants on lay-away or something until the 11th.

This concludes the rambling clothing post.

Ow my feet

Oh, I'd forgotten the joy of speed walking across campus in shoes just not made for that sort of thing.

Note to self: When you know you have a lot of walking to do? Wear comfy shoes.

I'd also like to go on record to the most of the young women I saw walking across campus as saying: Those aren't shorts those are knickers. Put on some pants. Please.

I might have my feminist card taken away for saying this but for goodness sakes put on some more clothes! Cover up a bit! I know it's Texas and it's hot as the surface of the sun, but I really really really do not need to see most of your ass hanging out of your short-shorts. I'd be more okay with mini-skirts but hey at least those can look good. This just looks like you forgot to put on your pants in the morning.

And to the young woman in front of me in mythology class? The fact you told the girl next to you that your really there for your MRS degree made me want to take my book and smack you over the head.

And completely randomly to all Universities and College out there: if you have to remodel the activities building, which includes gutting the lockers rooms and equipment supply rooms? Do it during summer, please?

Any of you still with me that are curious here are the classes I'm taking:
HIST 3383 - EURO 1560-1715

Can I hit the reset button?

As bad days go lets go down the check list:
Somehow getting turned around and going the completely wrong direction than you need to get to school? Check.
Pouring down rain? Check
Almost running of a gas? Check
Realizing you missed your first class and have no chance to get to the second one? Check
Run of the road by an 18 wheeler? Check
In tears and headachey before 10:30? Check
Giving up and just going home for a hot cup of tea and nap? Check
So far?
Worst birthday ever.

School starts again and other....Stuff

School starts back up for me tomorrow and I just realized how little I've been blogging her.

Bad blogger, no cookie.

Long story short, here a run down of things happening lately:
  • My cat? Yeast infection in her ears, and is all better now. The vet near me? Rocks. They even have email reminder.
  • I might have gotten a student loan, hopefully I will hear something this week. This would make my life so much easier.
  • I have 13 hours this coming semester. What's the 1, I hear you ask. Fencing. I'm both dreading and looking forward to this.
  • I turn twenty six tomorrow. Am I allowed to wail about almost being thirty, or will I have things thrown at me?
  • My best friend rocks and so does bread pudding.
  • BBC's Shakespeare Re-Told - Taming of the Shrew? Thoroughly enjoyed it.
  • Btw, BBC? I could do with less Sharpe commercials and really why is any woman getting near him with his track record for having his girl of the movie raped/killed/maimed/sold/etc?

Fear and misery

The new security measures for airplanes as me pretty pissed off because I don't really believe it will just be 'temporary'. The airlines will find a way to cash in. Yes, I'm that cynical.

When will people understand that fear and misery don't make us safer?

Just scared and miserable.

PS. I promise to blog something remotely historical soon. Really.

Don't I have an open honest face?

Kitty update

My kitty has a appointment for Thursday and I've found a really nice clinic right near me. The place is open until midnight and does payment plans.

She seems to be acting a bit more lively today and she's grooming herself, but I want to make sure she's okay. I might not really have the money for it now, but I love her.

Cat worries

I'm going to have a breakdown before the week is out at this rate.

My kitty Tilly has really bad waxy build up in her ears and even with the drops and cleaning as suggested it is just not getting better. Now she's refusing treats and seems to be loosing fur around her ears. I'm going to have to take her to the vet. My other cats ears are fine.

I feel like such a horrid person for thinking "But I can't afford to take her to the vet right now!"

Mmmm Curry

Let it be known that the 'A Taste of Thai" Red curry noodles is very very very very very delicious (and spicy).

I'm so stocking up on these when I go to the store this weekend.

The Pad Thai Noodles are half bad either.

Falls down dead (an update)

My mother, as I should have known given that hello this is my mother, believed me. Plus had she been in the same country as my step-father at the time I think he'd be missing a few parts. She's making him go back to counseling and if he even 'thinks' about even calling me or she has the slightest hint he's even been near my condo? She's throwing him out.

She took me to dinner Monday. She told me the thing that upset her most was that he'd made me feel has if I was at fault and that he'd made me unsure about telling her. I've always been able to tell and talk to my mother about anything even subjects we disagree on. I'm glad this hasn't changed.

I now have a chain on my door and a alarm company coming out next week. I also had a girlfriend over this weekend who kept me from dwelling on things. Good friends will listen to you, best friends will let you drag them into store after store when shopping for clothes and shoes really isn't there thing.

In other news I'm the biggest dork in the world because I have The Doctor Who technical Manual sitting right next to The Riverside Chaucer.
