I Was Chased By A Roach

November 18, 2008

I’m serious.  No, really.  Seriously.  For Real.  I’m not joking.

Ok, well replace “chased by” with “in the shower when lo and behold I was met unceremoniously with the sight of a three inch water bug that may as well have been.”

Good morning to me.

Do you know what it’s like to be in the most vulnerable position you could ever be in and having one of your worst fears stare you right in the face?  Taunting you?  Mocking you?  Daring you to squish it with either a wet palm or a bare foot? HUH?  DO YOU?!?!?

Sorry.  I really don’t like bugs.  That shit was disgusting.  And it made me late for work.

On to lighter fare – I wore my Roger belt today with thebestdressever that came from the dollar sale. I love that place…so much.  The fabric is waffle-y in texture and very cool indeed.

Vintage Dress: Jet Rag

Belt: New York Vintage

Tights: Target

Shoes: Guess

In addition to the traumatic events of this morning, later in the day I came across something that sent nearly an equal amount of fear through my body:

I’m still shocked that this product actually exists.  I weep for the children.

My blog’s new home is up; you should go there.

    I thought that I was the only one that thought Jolly Rancher in a bottle was super ridiculous. It really is sugar in a bottle.
