Funny story about these photos: I had been trying to take outfit photos for the past four days, but it just didn't happen. Saturday and Sunday were extremely windy, and it ended up raining on Monday. It's no "Snowpocalypse," but it still wasn't prime outfit taking weather. Then, I planned on taking outfit photos after work yesterday. Somehow, I got distracted by the Internet and cleaning out my room, so by the time I decided to do it, it was getting dark. It's weird, because I almost never get distracted by the Internet when I should be doing something else (this is false). I hadn't really figured out what I wanted to wear for them, so I kind of threw on an outfit I was planning on wearing later this week. I snapped a few pictures, but when I looked at them, the outfit looked terrible. Panicking, I left my camera and tripod outside and ran in to change quickly. I grabbed whatever I had been wearing already -- this -- and ran back outside. In the few minutes I had been inside, it had gotten darker. Then I realized that I had left my camera remote upstairs. It was a whole thing.
So what I'm left with are a little too dark pictures, which I decided were just going to have to do the trick. I even included my look of sadness as I was taking them. I wasn't really planning on taking pictures in this last minute outfit, but it combines two of my absolute favorite pieces in my closet, so I'm glad I did. Who needs creativity, or even light, when you have a mustard thermal and a thrifted BB Dakota skirt?
I wore this for my weekly Parks and Rec night with my friends. We've started having dinner that reflect the characters beforehand because we take this shit seriously. Last week was steak and potatoes for Ron, and this week was Treat Yo Self night for Tom and Donna. We had "chicky chicky parm parm" and giant cupcakes. Next week we're thinking of eating cereal out of frisbees for April and Andy.
As for what else I've been up to, the biggest highlight of my year so far came from going to a Harmontown taping on Sunday night, where David Cross showed up. Arrested Development is my favorite show of all time (next to Breaking Bad), so to get to see Cross, especially while I'm watching through Mr. Show, was incredible. He had a serious talk with Dan Harmon and Kumail Nanjiani about religion, and was crazy funny the rest of the show. I somehow managed to keep it together during the entire podcast.
