Day: Today's dress is a win for me. I saw this same dress in a different fabric and pattern at Old Navy while shopping with Rica. It was $30 and I didn't really want to spend that much on a dress. Surely by now, day nine, you realize I am exceptionally cheap, or thrifty if you're being nice about it. About a month later I decided to check if the dress was on sale. Turns out it was and I also saw today's red cotton version of the dress. I scored two dresses for $32.99. Patience really is a virtue. I paired today's dress with one of my squirrel rings, this one a present from Rica from Art Star. It's the same style as the pirate ship ring but a bit more dainty. My blue nail polish is also still going strong.

I had some trouble with the pictures today too since I woke up with the beginnings of a giant shiny horrid chin pimple. I am trying desperately not to touch it. I decided to wear a bear mask for some of the photos but thought that wouldn't be totally fair so there are maskless photos as well. The background is my office area, where I write this blog every single day.

Today was one of those weird days where time seemed to fly by. We woke up at a pretty reasonable time and I spent way too many hours uploading old photos to Facebook. I got it in my head that I needed a folder of friend pictures so I started going through most of my 24,571 photos flagging good friend pictures. I probably still have a few thousand to go through but I gave up for now. I finally dragged myself out of my sweats and into a dress so I could go to aka with Steve so we could get tickets for forgetters at the barbary as they are the new band of Blake Schwarzenbach of Jawbreaker and Jets to Brazil fame. We got the last eight tickets they had. Score. I then spent the next few hours in a hellish Target and Walmart debacle searching for tubes or other floating devices to use for another tubing trip tomorrow. I finally found rafts and snow tubes at Walmart. I hate the South Philly Walmart. It might be the trashiest place on Earth but at least they had the goods I needed and mostly on clearance to boot. I then met Sue, Jake and Michael at the Memphis Taproom for drinks. I was totally bitchy and dumb but settled down after a glass of pinot noir and a few bites of heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad with a lovely pesto. Now I'm back in my sweats and I'm going to crawl into bed and watch the last disc of Tell Me You Love Me, which will be bittersweet since the show got cancelled.
