5.How late did you stay up last night and why?
Last night is today still, woke up at 8 pm, worked all night and going to go shopping when the stores open in an hour of so, looking for some vintage gothy style clothes. It’s my weekend so I don’t have to go to bed before noon 🙂
(addendum to #5, drove all over Montrose and the Heights and only found ONE decent store for nice vintage clothing – Retropolis. Wear It Again Sam’s or whatever it’s current incarnation is closed on Mondays, but thru the window looks a lot like it used to. Tried on a dozen + dresses, tops, jackets, skirts and found ONE that fit me and I loved. I thought since I’d lost 30 pounds from my last vintage shopping trip I might fare better, but no, the broad shoulder and straight/short waist kill me every time, sigh). Just have to start sewing again I guess… though I have also just discovered Etsy, which is going to be a new obsession pretty quickly, I’m guessing. Very nice place, though, nice employees, and hours of stuff to dig thru. Got a black beaded/sequined shell, reminded me of one my mom had in the 60’s, it looks like it’s from the glittery 80’s excess. Lusted after a black velvet short cape (too small in the giant shoulders), a black 50’s brocade dress (too fight to move), and a little simple black dress with fleur de lis’ (could zip it but couldn’t move my arms). May go back and get the brocade dress just to rip it apart and make a skirt of something, the fabric was gorgeous, Got affectionately called a fiend because of my armloads of all black by one of the employees and grinned at her and said “How did you guess?”. Funny how no one at Macy’s or Penney’s seems to notice when I do the same thing there 😉 Oh well, still want to go back to WIAS, used to be good back in the 90’s, think that’s where I got the cocktail dress I wore to the wine tasting. It was very weird walking into the former vintage clothing & ‘uber cool stuff’ stores on lower Westheimer to see they’re current incarnations (Taxi Taxi was nothing but tee shirts as far as the eye could see). And Marc’s across the street brings back a ton of memories, can’t remember the name of the store but it was very goth friendly. That 70’s Shop is closed (if it’s where the Chinese Restaurant used to be) and I was afraid to go into the cat lady’s store, Buffalo Exchange was nothing but newer stuff and employees who didn’t say a word to me. And the Way We Wore is pretty much nothing but actual costumes (like for Halloween). Off to bed now, I’m completely brain dead and exhausted) or maybe I’ll just stay up till I collapse so I can avoid the mess I had last week of waking up at 2:30 in the morning 🙁
6.If you could move somewhere else, would you?
Yes, New Orleans. Always wanted to live there. And I will move there as soon as circumstances permit. Mary said I could be buried there with her family in St Louis #1, a dream come true 😉

22. What does the last text message in your in-box say?
23. How do you feel about your life right now?
My life’s been in a constant state if change since my Dad had his accident 1 1/2 years ago, way too many things happened since then (new job, then my father passed 3 days into it, then my mom had her accident, then I put her in a nursing home, then I left my husband of 19 years and am living on my own now, etc., etc). Be glad when it gets back to boring and ‘normal’.

‘Witchcraft’ by Book of Love (Enchantra, Endora, Tabatha… Esmerelda, Clara, Hagatha…), and “anusin, atelin, amulet… Angelique takes Barnabas from Josette”, gotta love it!
29. Someone knocks on your window at 2:00 a.m., who do you want it to be?
The handsome guy that looked like Barnabas from the Vampire Ball 😉 But I wouldn’t be home at 2 am… well tonight I would 😉

Lots of laundry. Call my mother and my brother.

Way, way too much. I need to start blogging again to get it all out of my head.
