I've been off work for a couple of days, feeling a bit on the icky side with weird stomach cramps, a bit of fever and headache. My appetite's been practically non-existent (which is really unusual) and I haven't even felt like booze!
I figure I'm getting a bit long in the tooth for this partying shit, and have been paying the price for last weekend!
I simply had to frock up today; it's Friday after all, and I had to pop out to the doctors.
Frock-sweet 60's, a gift from the lovely Ivy , it was a little constricting in the booboid department, so I let it out a tad yesterday and now it's perfect!
Coat-Repertory Theatre sale
Little cardi-Lampang, Thailand
Earrings-some chain jewellery store sale, I got a pair for Vix as well, she's wearing them here . I like them cos they're a bit Indian-ish
Necklace-G bought it for me in Wellington
Handbag-$2 at an opshop many years ago! haven't used it in years!
Flower-gift from Justine
Sunglasses-vintage Orotons, gift from Sarah
I was recognised by these shoes when I was waiting (for fecking ever) at the doctors surgery; the lady had seen my pic in Metropol magazine!!!
This is tooled leather of the softest, butteryist, rub up against your nekkid body kind....
I adore wrinkly knees!
Good thing, really, one day they'll be for real!!
Speaking of getting older and mouldier, a very elderly lady admired me (naturally) at the chemist, the wee old sweetie!
(Chemist=drugstore, darling Americans. I like drugstore so much better, it sounds naughtier, and whenever I'm in the States I find every excuse to go into one and get the most puerile joy out of it!)
Gonna take it off!
So, whilst I had some time on my hands, I decided to start making a new frock with my new sewing machine!
My beloved hot Vix sent me this unopened(!) pattern a while back, and I had some curtains lying around....so what the hell!
I have been blithering about a new machine for yonks, but was very indecisive about it, and a little reluctant to do away with my old one, as my parents gave it to me for my 21st birthday....so it had sentimental value.
It has been acting up for sometime, however, and I figured I was gonna have to bite the bullet......but really didn't know what I was going to get..........and then we saw this on sale for a ridiculous price.........and so we got it!
Here's the bodice so far.
I'm treating this as a toile, but if it works out and I like it-bonus!
I have a sneaking suspicion that a) the style won't suit me, and b) I haven't adjusted it enough for my 42" booboids....(the pattern is for a 40" bust)...but I'm just gonna go for it, and it's a thrill to be sewing on a machine that doesn't fight back!!!
I'll let you know how I get on.
Have you seen what La Dama has been up to?!
This made me choke with laughter, it's frigging hilarious!
I'm really very amused, and am quite willing to have her hands on my mammary glands, but G will probably fight for his rights!
She looks bloody amazing too!
So, anyways, it looks like I might have campylobacter, or good old fashioned food poisoning, so if I still feel crampy by the end of the weekend the doctor wants me to get a stool sample!!!
O please, please let me come right, please don't make me have to get up close and personal with my poo!
If that is in fact what I have, I have no idea how I might have gotten it, but it does call to mind Ralph being rather loudly and awfully pukey on Sunday night/Monday morning......
At least I haven't been violently and bloodily puking and/or shitting myself!
Wish me luck, darlings!
After all, you don't come here for milk and cookies, do you?!
Nah, you come here for the nitty gritty raw stuff.
Just like the real women y'all are!
