Wild Wednesday (but really, it’s about Saturday)

So, as y’all know, last Saturday was Savannah’s annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration. It was also my BEST FRIEND Liz’s last night in town before heading back up to school. So, I had to go hang out with her, right?

Let’s just say this post will be more wild than wacky

So, I dressed up in my green so that drunk weirdoes wouldn’t pinch me (and don’t think you’re safe from drunks at the mall, for you are not!) and headed out into Savannah. I’m all freckled, so people LOVE to pinch the Irish-looking chick. Anyway, the traffic was, as expected, horrendous. But, it was worth it to see Liz.

Also dressed up

I also got to see Maria, which was AWESOME! I love that chick, and so getting to see her and her family was (and is always) super nice. I also saw a TON of people. I saw Nelson, J.Bo. (aka Jessica, one of my BEST friends from high school whom I hadn’t seen in FOREVER), Debs, Hassan, Sydney, Caleb, Meggy, et&.

So, anyway, Liz and I decided to get some Mexican because I was STARVING. Also, queso sounded delicious. We talked, we had margaritas, and we hung out with Liz’s dad for a bit, which led to a long intellectual discussion about women and Shakespeare and literary theory and all kinds of things. It was quite fun. I love big discussions.

Blurry, JUST LIKE MY VISION

I had an amazing day that all culminated in one of the BIGGEST hugs I’ve ever had in my life (thanks, Nelson!) and some DELICIOUS McD’s fries. On Friday, I’ll give you guys a nice tutorial on my St. Paddy’s day makeup, okay?

I guess that’s really all I have to say about St. Pat’s (without incriminating myself, of course). So, I hope y’all all had a great time, too, and I hope you also have a wild, weird, wacky wednesday! Oh! I almost forgot to mention! My favorite part of the day was the dude who saw me, screamed “SKELETON LEGS, I LOVE YOU!!!” and almost fell to his death laughing when I did my fabulous queen pose. Black Milk for the win, y’all.

Happy Almost-the-Weekend Day!

Hey y’all! Sorry I was MIA yesterday. I completely forgot that it was a Tuesday and not a weekend day when I don’t post. So. Yeah, dangers of being currently underemployed. I do work, but not on a 5-day, however-many-hour workweek.

Anyway! Enough about that. For this wild, weird, wacky wednesday, I want to talk about something that is considered a bit strange (unless you do it!) and definitely wild. Hooping!

I just got a new hoop, and she’s beautiful. So, I’ve been learning to do some moves, and it’s really fun! If not a bit tiring. But, that’s good! Exercise and all.

My new hoop!

I am completely in love with my hoop and the hooping world. I recommend fully the lady I worked with to get this hoop; she’s a very prompt responder and my hoop was shipped and got here in less than a week! I also totally recommend this chick for lessons and this site for the community.

I am also planning on taking my hoop everywhere I go so that I can use it whenever I have some free time. It really is addictive, you guys. Also, I have noticed a bit of a firming of my muscles. Not anything major, but certainly there and noticeable. My boyfriend even commented on it in one of our nightly skype sessions. Which, by the way, are completely necessary for long distance. Trust.

Anyway! I have also made some wonderfully wild and wacky shorts recently! I love them. They are based on the tutorial here. She’s awesome and has lots of other awesome tutorials, too.

Yup, these are my EPIC shorts

I used the Jacquard dye, but I couldn’t wait for it to be a convenient or warm time, so I did it outside one late afternoon and it was freezing! Anyway, I dripped ALL OVER my garage and they never fully dried before I washed them (as in, still DRIPPING when I threw them in), but I think they were totally worth it. They’re beautiful in real life, and so VIBRANT! I am in love.

I plan to wear these shorts while hooping at Counterpoint this year. Yeah. Also, potentially Excision, because I’m crazy. But only if it’s warm enough. And maybe some of those insane fuzzy leg warmers.

Yup, like these. Also, NOT my ass. I wish!

So, anyway, what do you guys think about hooping? Have you done it since you were a kid and the word “hula” was in front of it? I hadn’t! Are y’all fans of tie dye? I went to a pretty hippie, liberal college, so I am SUCH a fan of tie dye. SUCH a fan! See you guys soon! Let me know if you have any requests or ideas for next week’s Wild, Weird, Wacky Wednesday!

Wild, Weird, Wacky Wednesday

So, clearly, Wednesdays on here are gonna get a little … crazy. You know you like it.

Anyway! For this edition of Wild, Weird, Wacky Wednesday, I thought I might share a coupla things that I do that are kinda weird. Definitely let me know in the comments what you think of them, or if you do anything particularly weird, too.

One of my favorite things to do is organize things that aren’t my bedroom. Maybe it’s because I’m avoiding the disaster zone that is my bedroom because it’s just Too Much, or maybe it’s just because small messes bother me more than big messes, but I like fixing things just so and then telling EVERYONE about it. For example, I recently organized my lip products and my nail polishes.

Basically, all of my nail polish and some remover.

Lip products, side one.

Lip products, side two.

That is not, of course, all of my lip stuff and nail stuff, but it’s the majority of it and it made me feel SO MUCH better to do.

I also recently cleaned out the refrigerators in my house, literally scrubbing out the insides and throwing away anything that was perishable that wasn’t new. It was kind of awesome.

I have, of course, cleaned my room before. I used this epic folding system that was basically “filing” your clothing so that you could easily see it all in the drawer. It was pretty awesome.

See? AWESOME.

Another weird thing that I like to do is put on makeup, brush my teeth, or fix my eyebrows while I’m using the bathroom. I just feel like it’s otherwise a waste of time. I also will put on makeup at night while I’m in there, and then promptly have to take it off when I wash my face. But, it’s good practice and leads to you being really quite good at makeup skills.

I also love to eat some pretty weird things, like banana and mayo sammiches, dill pickles and chocolate ice cream, hershey bars and BBQ sauce, and raw tomatoes, onions, and cucumbers. Not all together. Just, you know, sometimes.

Ooo, I also have a tendency to spell things the British way (e.g. colour, neighbour, etc.) and I’m such a fan of the Oxford comma (and commas in general), I’m going to get one tattooed on my wrist. Yep. That’s a thing. However, I totally use slang words and spellings (see: “Ooo” and also “gonna,” “coupla,” “kinda,” etc.). So, no worries if you want to comment and maybe don’t have perfect grammar. I’m not gonna kill ya. ^.~

I’m sure that there are tons more weird things I do, or habits that I have, but I can’t really think of any right now. So, what are some weird things you do? Am I leaving anything out? Do you guys want to know any other weird things about me? Ask away!
