“Girlfriend in a coma, I know…” you friggin’ LOVE this sweater!
Who loves The Smiths?
If your answer is “Not I!”, I will silently scream “How is this possible??” at you from my mind, but outwardly give no sign, because I don’t like to shout at people, because I AM NOT THOMAS PAINE.
Anyway! I digress. My husband is a huge Morrissey fan so I was sleuthing around the web looking for cool new Morrissey items and I found this sweater. It is an epic example of Holiday vulgarity and I LOVE IT. It seems to be currently sold out (website is a little confusing — look at URL), but when they re-stock I am definitely picking one up for Christmas next year (quick honey, unsee this now!).
I will post a shot of my glitter holiday mani on Friday once I’ve done it. I tried a Sally Hansen blue crackle over periwinkle polish this week and it would have been lovely except that the crackle pulled apart the 2 coats of polish beneath it down to the bare nail in a lot of places. Here is an image of that nail fail to the right (coming soon).
I will finish Common Sense tonight — again, really worth a read historically. Now it’s time to start up some fun Holiday reads! What will it be?
A Vampire for Christmas?
Angels at the Table?
I guess you will find out next week…
And have a lovely weekend, everyone!
And now, Time for a Coffee,
A Day to Give Thanks…
Whether you live in the United States or not, Thanksgiving Day is a good day to take a moment to give thanks for all the good people and things in your life, and for me that’s good health, great family and friends, a safe and happy home, and of course…. books!
In addition to some current fun I’m having in an alternate-reality, steam-punky, Victorianesque, Vampiric London (God Save the Queen), I am reading Common Sense by Thomas Paine, written in 1776.
How, how was I not forced to read this book in High School History or Civics, not to mention University American History??? Apparently the work was a huge driving force behind the creation of the Declaration of Independence. It’s not even some super-long tome — it’s a long pamphlet! If you are a U.S. citizen, and have not read this, go ahead and do so — it’s very enlightening, and will definitely give you more Revolutionary history street cred.
NOT TO MENTION, THOMAS PAINE LOVES SOME ALL CAPS! It’s pretty amusing actually — I’ve read my fair share of books from the 1700 and 1800’s and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone use all caps. He may have influenced e-mail and chat room shouters everywhere. Yay?
So give thanks, DONT SHOUT (unless you are fighting tyranny), and have a lovely Thanksgiving Thursday!
