at lunch with Bronwyn today she said (she’s working at a LifeLine op shop for community service), “I spotted a dress yesterday at work and thought ‘oo, Jess’d like that,’ it was just your style. then I looked at the tag to see where to hang it and it said fancy dress.”
I found that rather amusing.
at work Leonard was taking down fairie lights that sometimes blink and sometimes don’t blink and sometimes don’t work at all, when he suddenly gave a yell.. he’d been mildly shocked. he later said, “gee, i’m glad it wasn’t one of you girls who’d grabbed hold of that.”
ph! I felt like marching over there and grabbing it for all I was worth. I bet I wouldn’t even give half the bellow he did.
I learnt how to make an illusion (vodka, midori, gin, tequila, limejuice, ice), except the boy I was making them for asked me to put this horrid black licorice stuff in as well. ew. then he was sitting at the bar talking to a lady telling her about the car accident he’d been in, and he showed her this huge scar covering his torso. she said, “oh my god, you’re so lucky. you’re so lucky.”
I was thinking, “i’m luckier.”
