It turned into a wet old day here, but I don't mind!
I've got my broken brolly, a glass of vino and my hair turned out perfectly this morning!
(That made me very happy!)
Frock-early 70's, opshopped for about $1.50, I think
Hairbow-an Asian shop somewhere
Fistfull of silver rings-all over!
Earrings-gifted from Justine
My hair is fabulous!
And I didn't even try.
I often find that the less effort I make, the better it turns out.
That philosophy also works in other areas of my life.
O, and I'm accidentally giving y'all the finger!
My boss was a doll today and let me pop out for a local bloggers meetup at a cafe not far from here.
Organised by Miriam, it was a lovely bunch of crafting blog ladies that turned up!
I pretty much rode on Max's coat tails, really, but Miriam is just lovely, and welcomes any type of blogger along!
I've stolen this pic from her blog:
That's Max in pink, left, and I have totally forgotten the names of the other lovely ladies!
I am always happy to meet new people, and am not bothered going into places, even parties, where I don't know many people.
I wouldn't say it's confidence, exactly, but mind over matter.
Mostly because I just can't be bothered being scared, wimpy, nervous.
I'm too old to miss out on things because of that shit.
Luckily I have wide enough interests, or am at least well read enough to fit in anywhere and talk to anyone about almost anything.
And, I'm quite curious, although I'm not a question asker, and love learning what makes people tick.
Hurrah for the "laisse faire"* that age brings!
Enough of that!
I don't think I mentioned that G and I watched "Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day" last week.
I had seen it before, some time back, but only read the novel it was based on relatively recently, so fancied a re-run.
G loved it, bless his canary yellows.
He's good like that.
This is a man who refuses to entertain the idea of seeing the last movie version of "Pride and Prejudice" because it would sully his beloved tv adaption....(O, Colin!)
I snuck off and saw it at the cinema; it was bollocks.
Anyway, I rather fancy Lee Pace, who plays the poor pianist in this.
Frances McDormand is always a dream ("Fargo"! "Laurel Canyon"!)and Amy Adams is brillant!
Not to mention the set!
And the frocks!
Such matchy matchy perfection!
O, for goodness sake, this is just too heavenly!
G also liked the set, the main room in particular.
I didn't find a pic of that, sorry.
I do like this actress too, she has such a snakey voice!
Isn't she the toilet girl in one of the Harry Potters?!
We also watched the original "Hairspray"!
I hadn't seen this since it came out in '88!
I had forgotten just how wonderfully non PC it was!
Divine really is divine, isn't she?!
I would have loved to hang out with her!
Do you remember her single "You think you're a man"?!
Debbie Harry is bloody awesome in this, too!
Such a great mouth!
I do like the remake of this, too.
John Travolta totally should have won an Oscar!
He was ROBBED!
Anyways, watching this made me feel like a bit of a John Waters binge.
I'll have to see if I can find some of those splendid films he made with Divine, like "Pink Flamingoes".
Not for the faint hearted!
O, and I'll have you know that it was all innocence in the bike sheds yesterday!
(cue sinister laugh!)
And Michelle , darling, I'm looking out for a turban!
I might have to try making one!
