Fancy No-Pants

I spent New Year’s Eve at Tristan’s with some of my favorite people on earth. I dressed in as much glitter as I could find because the occasion calls for it, and I also worked up the stones to wear a dress that I bought nearly a year ago that’s always been just a bit too daring for me. I also broke out the super fancy manolo blahnik stiletto boots I bought in December 2008 for the VERY FIRST TIME, because one does not often have occasion to wear shoes quite that fancy. Apparently that sort of occasion comes around once every two years for me.

We are all far too fabulous for a camera to focus properly. It’s Science!

Things I learned that evening: don’t rely on the sandwich from the BBQ bus to hold you through drinking stupid amounts of champagne, the game of things is really the best game ever, I have a spooky mind-meld thing going with Shannon and Mirinda, Emily is not fucking kidding when she says she screams at scary parts in movies, the Star Wars Holiday Special is still pretty well unbearable even when drunk, and the Cooking With Coolio garlic bread is shockingly delicious–my expectations were not high at all, and then I felt a little bad for judging a recipe by its rapper. Although I’m still not quite sure how to measure spices in dimebags. Maybe I should ask my brother.

    Nice job rocking the dress! You’re braver than I am, these legs haven’t seen a dress since 1998, if I’m not mistaken. And now I’m curious as to what these fabulous shoes look like.

      I will wear dresses on occasion, but I have not worn shorts in forever and a day and don’t intend to stop that streak anytime soon.

        I only have a slight shoe fascination, and darling, those are FANTASTIC shoes. I have a girlfriend that would kill young children a hundred times over to own those!

    Those are great shoes. Don’t doubt it.

    Unrelated: you’re in… Seattle-ish, right? Because I desperately want you to apply for this:
    I’m not just saying it, I could see you really fitting in at PA. Although though I guess it doesn’t really fit with your long-term goals. But stiiiiiiiill.

      I am! I’m pretty sure they’re in north-ish Seattle and I live on the south end, but for the right job, I’m willing to commute. It does look like it could be a great fit. Thanks for the heads-up! 🙂

        Partly it’s just vicarious since I would love that job but don’t want to move. So maybe I am just selfish! But yeah, I say go for it. (If you don’t it won’t hurt my feelings.) Also if you are good at table tennis they love that.

          I’ve actually been looking to make a jump so the timing on this couldn’t be better!

    I’m in desperate need to see a clear shot of you in that dress and shoes, lol.

    1. admin January 5, 2011 at 4:09 pm

      I don’t know that one exists, maybe I’ll play dress-up and try to get one of those classy ‘takin a picture of myself in the mirror’ photos for you.

      1. lilysnape January 5, 2011 at 5:39 pm

        Well, if you want to, sure. I was just very curious, hehe.

    What? No shoe shots? WHAT?!

    1. thecostumegal January 5, 2011 at 3:46 am

      Oh wait. Now I see them…in the comments…hurdurrrr

      1. admin January 5, 2011 at 5:11 am

        I guess they’re not *so* fancy, they are just spendier shoes than anything else in my closet–I never, ever would have paid full price for them and just knowing what the store wanted for them originally is enough to make me keep them in their box and save them for special occasions.

  8. pikefish January 6, 2011 at 3:53 am
