I missed you guys. And I missed blogging.
My elbows are glued to my sides because I am shrinking out of my clothes. Stupid stress. Lately I am so cranky. I will be better soon, though. \m/ -_-
Tonight I stepped out a bit from my summer school panic and hand-waving freakoutery, as my dear friends Matt and Cathy treated me to dim sum, and then I was treated for my roommate's birthday dinner at a delicious restaurant, and amazing food was had by all. Sometimes, watching a gorgeous display of wushu, or an amazing dancer, or eating food that makes me stare at it, incredulous, I'll say, "I am in the presence of a master."
Should you get the chance to visit Coco500, get the squash blossom flatbread and the charred carrots salad and you may say it, too.
I was really excited when I found this jacket, though. Any jacket I don't have to alter the sleeves on makes me excited.
Maybe I'm just startled by a strong resemblance to my aunt in these pictures. The women on both sides of my family are smaller (though taller) than I am. I tell them it is the American diet*. Then I flex.
* Sarcasm, because my father, his sisters, and my grandmother were all born here, and my great-grandparents came they were 14 & 15**.
** Though on second thought, they all came of age before the era of fast food. As a child of a single parent, I had a diet reasonably high in pizza and fish burgers. :D Not complaining at all, just wondering if that played a role.
Japanese-y print! I was so excited to find this on the thrift rack, some years ago. The ribbon around my waist is from a box of chocolates. A lot of times, when I am reading Sheila's blog, or Megan's, or Gracey's, I think, "Man, they have such awesome thrift finds." And then I scroll through my blog entries, and remember I have awesome thrift luck, too. It's always easier to overlook the gifts you've got. (;
Low heels! I love low heels.
Forgot to take photos with purse, because I almost never carry one. I usually carry everything around in a small sports backpack my friend Cathy bought for me 10 years ago. I sure like metallic blue, though. It looks like I skinned one of those aliens from the Avatar film and made a bag. (I do not actually support doing this.) I just realized the fortune cookie shape fits into the whole Asian outfit theme.
Check out this awesome sketch from Megan Mae. It's me and Meghan from Cirque du Frock! So cool. I am super excited to be a sketch. Look how toned my arms are!
