I promise this is not going to turn into a dream journal, but I actually had pretty much the best dream ever last night. We had watched an episode of “Look Around You” with Edgar Wright* in it, and my reaction had been basically “Oh my gosh! Edgar Wright!!!”. Because, well, I love him, and he doesn’t do a lot of acting. And as a result of that I had a dream that I was at a party, and Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright were there. We got to talking and we decided that we should write a show together, and so we did. It was a comedy show, a bit absurdest, about office and apartment life. It was an excellent show, starring Simon and I. I cannot think of a better dream. I hope I have it again.
And then I woke up, and had a bagel. That was less interesting.
I have had this dress for a very, very long time. I had it when I weighed approximately 50 pounds more than I do now and it fit then and it fits now. I don’t understand how that works other than a great cut and very stretchy fabric. But it does.
I love these colors, and I love them on me.
The shopping ban (January through the end of February) is going pretty well. By which I mean I haven’t’ cheated. (I did try, once at Banana Republic, when they had a gorgeous $250 leather bag with a plastic/resin chain handle on sale for all of $50. But I didn’t.) It's not fun. It's been really hard, and I don't like it. But it's good for me, I know. My concern now is really more for the end of February than anything else. Money is really tight, and the truth is shopping ban or no, I don’t have any to spare. So I’m hoping that come the end, I can still control myself.
I don’t think I would have worn this jacket nearly as often if not for the ban, since jackets are my weakness and I would bet almost anything I’d have another new one by now. So that’s a good thing, getting more use out of what I do have.
I know that bag has nothing to do with the rest of the outfit, but you know what? It had room for my lunch in it.** And as I am perpetually late, this appealed to me this AM. I needed to just pack it and GO.
*Edgar Wright is the writer/director/awesome sauce responsible in part for such things as the UK series “Spaced” and the movies “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz”.
** A PB&J, raw broccoli and carrots with low fat ranch dip, a pudding cup, and an afternoon snack ( 100 calorie pack of cheez-its).
