This Tuesday is all about Aretha Franklin. I’ve been all about the soul vibes lately. Aretha, Otis, gimme it. All the soul.
We explored Woodinville on Saturday. My sweetest sis-in-law gave us a house warming present to Molbak’s, which is a sweet garden/home store out there. The nursery part is pretty damn fabulous, and I got a killer gold faux fur blanket to drape on my reading chair. It’s very luxe, and I feel like an evil villain when I sit with it.
We also hit up the Chateau Saint Michelle winery, which was beautiful. I’d never been to a winery before, and we took the free tour. I mostly wanted to see people squishing grapes with their feet, but obvs it was just all industrial town up in there. Still cool.
In other news, I’M STILL UNEMPLOYED! Bust out the party hats and the high-waisted underwear because I’m still chillin. That’s me. Cold-hearted serial chiller. I got back into Scandal. I took a brief hiatus to watch America’s Next Top Model, which is REALLY stupid. I had never watched a full season, and then they were all there on Hulu Plus. It just happened. Just 9 seasons like THAT. Chalk it up to my existential crisis and discombobulation post move.
I had a dream last night that I started taking drum lessons and wearing Slayer shirts. I’m not sure what it means, but I’m kind of into it. I feel like it made me wake up with a craving for a.) hair metal and b.) no more pixie cut. This pixie cut has me almost down in the dumps. Why does the “grass is greener” principle have to be so eye-rollingly true? Goddamn human nature. Also, I feel like perfect winged eyeliner is a total lie. I’ve watched EVERY youtube out there (exaggeration) and read every stupid blog post about it (another exaggeration) and my eyeliner still is never even. And the wings are never perfect. Guess what, beauty gurus–you’re wrong. Your fail-proof tips are full of fail. Either that or I just am not meant to have perfect winged eyeliner.
Just some random thoughts on a Tuesday. I’m going to go take care of the glamorous details of unemployed life. Like making dentist appointments and rolling over an old 401k. LIFE!
