I'm looking outside, and it's an absolutely beautiful day. The sky is blue, it's probably cold, but Clint is right: it totally smells like winter.
... and I love it. My new coat is perfectly acclimated for the weather, and with the gloves and scarf, I'm a regular heat-bomb.
I had a great weekend, hanging with infd
and seeing luminifer
LIVE in concert!! Which, by the way, kicked ass. Check out his band site at painhertz.com
. There's also some video here
and the top one is my little snippet. Alex (luminifer
) is an amazing guitarist too, which I never realized during our constant trips to karaoke back when I lived in NYC. What's your instrument count at now, Alex? 7? 8?
Anyway, after the show, we dragged the gang way
uptown to hit Allegra's party, and I saw a million people I hadn't seen in a million years, including abnihon
! it was definitely fun, and it made me really pleased not only to have such an excellent group of friends, but to get to spend time with them.
On Sunday, I hung out with Fred (hotstudboi427
) and we went to Macy's to engage in some retail therapy. Fred has been unhappy with my lack-of-girlishness sometimes [he references most often my kicking-ass-boots as being "lesbian boots"] so I indulged him and we wandered through the Christmas-laden aisles.
We ended up at the MAC counter and he convinced me to have one of the girls teach me about makeup. I really don't like makeup in general, but I figured that I could handle an eyeshadow and powder and lips for day-to-day wear on the days I felt like it. I also got "night makeup" which will include darker shadow, liner, mascara! Oh my! Lions and Tigers and Bears indeed.
I have to say -- the lady at the Clinique counter had NO idea what the HELL she was doing, but we decided on MAC because all of their employees just looked flawless
. There was one girl with this sort of geisha-themed super-colorful somehow Cyndi Lauper-esque look that was just breathtaking. And my opinion was definitely confirmed by the drag queens who kept coming through Macy's and talking to her. Tee hee.
And I love Fred, because he just paid for all the makeup for me. He loves.
It was just a lovely day, though, and I finished it feeling really pretty and feminine and happy. Which I'm sort of still feeling, after expelling mental evil courtesy of LJ. [thanks LJ!]. I plan to spend most of the morning tidying my room. Apparently, my heater is leaking into the downstairs apartment, but it can't quell my mood.
I'm having Thanksgiving tomorrow with sinboy
and Rose's mom [rosemom
?] is cooking. About which I am excited, and hungry! My mom and I decided that OH was too far to go by bus, though I'll admit to being so so sad and not getting to see lauren_lief
this weekend. I miss her.
I also intend on spending this weekend learning everything that I can about Chemistry
. I've officially pass/failed the class, and I wish I could say that from here, it'd be an easy feat to just pass, but hey, nothing is ever that easy. So, a lot of work will be done. It'll be nice to have a weekend "off" too, since there's absolutely something holiday-ish about holiday weekends, though in fact they're never physically different than your standard weekend.dankna
: is there Games Club on Friday night? speaking of standard weekends
Anyway, I'm off to tidy my room, and collect my laundry, and change my sheets, and maybe put on some of my invisible makeup
. Oh, and throw away trash! Then the walk to school! Whee! Maybe, in addition to water, my heater is spewing some sort of drug?
Why'm I so giddy and happy?
