Today's dress is one of my favorite dresses.  I love the color combination so very much.  I've had it for at least five years and when I used to smoke cigarettes I burned a hole in it with a stray ember.  Ugh, yet another reason why smoking is dumb.  It also has a stain on it from god knows what.  I can't remember where I bought or for how much, sorry.  It may even be from a suburban thrift store, maybe the Morgantown Goodwill or another thrift store by my Mom's house.  There are lots of good ones near Lancaster County.  I used to buy Amish dresses at one by her house when I was in high school.   Anyway  I know it's vintage and I know that the stripes are referred to as chevron.  I like them because they give such a lovely slimming illusion.  

I apologize for the lack of blog yesterday.  With the internet out last night I just didn't have it in me to type out a blog on my iphone keyboard.  It was a weird night anyway and I didn't really feel like blogging so I guess fate stepped in for me and temporarily suspended my internet connection.  Weird. Yesterday's dress was one of the dresses I got during my first trip to a Sazz Vintage warehouse sale. I had been waiting for chillier weather to wear it since it's long sleeve.  I have several long sleeve dresses to wear still but it's been a pretty warm November so far.  

Last night we went and saw Blind Pilot at World Cafe Live. It was a weird show.  It was good, don't get me wrong, I've just never been to that venue before and most of the space is taken up by tables and chairs and diners.  Weird.  There's a bar and some room at the stage for standing so we did but it was just weird.  There were also a lot of douche nozzles there that would not stop talking during the performance.  I will never understand people who pay to see a musical act or a movie or anything really and then proceed to talk the entire time.  There were also a few drunk annoying girls there whooping and acting like the girls gone wild bus just dropped them off. Ugh.    

Tonight I"m going to another show, Mr. Langhorne Slim.  I'm pretty excited as it's always a good time and it's at Johnny Brenda's where music sounds just lovely.   My old downstairs neighbor  was friends with him so the first time I ever heard him sing/play was in a tiny apartment for like eight people.  I had no idea what I was in for.  Man can that dude sing.  

Today was pretty boring and work filled.   We had macaroni and cheese, sauteed kale and bbq tofu for dinner while watching the Always Sunny Christmas special.  Now it's time for tonight's always sunny before we head out to a show.  I am so very tired. Oh dear.

Like the colors!

Smoking is not dumb. It's the coolest thing anyone can do.
