Back in November, Ian said this outfit reminded him of Gambit. Yes, the X-Man. I here admit that I didn’t pop that collar until after the Gambit remark. Observe that my hair does not grow longer, only taller. Today’s outfit, similarly captured with crummy indoor lighting and bleached to no end: Sheila‘s been winterizing her […]
While I can’t be sure if clay masks are doing my skin any good… … they sure are entertaining. Kiss me, you fool!
Friday, I busted out some pseudo-manstyle for a job interview. You could describe this outfit as two parts butch, one part femme. Face to face, you’d surely have spotted my makeup, girly shoes, fishnet trouser socks, and five earrings. These trousers, my friend/ are blowin’ in the wind/ these trousers are blowin’ in the wind […]
You’d better behave yourself, middle distance; I’m watching you. Actually, I’m watching the neighbor dogs. Whenever I’m weeding our jungle, neighboring children and/or dogs poke their noses over the wall to call and/or whimper for my attention. Puppies and children can’t be contained by mere walls.

This may be the least compelling photo you’ve seen today: …but I thought my First White Hair should be documented. When I spotted the hair, I recalled “Silvered Is the Raven Hair” from Gilbert and Sullivan’s Patience. Then I remembered this verse from “I’m Not Running Anymore” by John Mellencamp. My mom used to listen […]

The lighting in that bathroom must be very warm, I look significantly pinker face-to-face. An old boyfriend found me petty for taking such interest […]
This year for Halloween, I decided to stay home…. …put on a little makeup… … and just be myselves. This reminded me that we, as social creatures in a culture with many taboos and dictates, perform for a live audience nearly every day. Here’s hoping your costume is comfortable. Happy Halloween!
Yesterday morning, I spotted an injured bird on my street. Its wings looked fine, but it could only flap for a few feet and seemed to be favoring its right leg. As there are numerous dogs with “big bitey ends” around (one of which was chasing my bike when I noticed the bird), I set […]
We interrupt your regularly scheduled time-wasting to bring you this update from my ongoing taking photos to stylists series… Because three and a half months had passed since my last fateful haircut, my hair was the same length all over. I looked like a homely hedgehog. Not the look I was going for. Last Saturday, […]
