Since my last post, I miraculously hit 100 followers in record time (thank you to all of you! and special shout-out to lucky #100 Caroline, who just started a new blog) and I actually had a sorta-successful photo shoot where I wasn't completely eaten alive by insects. So why am I not smiling? Well, if you're new to the whole daily-fashion-blog thingmajig, y'all need to take a look at Adored Austin's recent post about how wonderful yet silly taking these photos can be.
I totally laughed out loud (yes, I lolled) when I read her checklist of the quintessential fashion blogger: Outlandish headwear (check), Non-prescription glasses (these are real, biatch), Skyrocketing hemline (not really here, but I've been guilty), Hand on hip or head (uhhhhh that's my "model pose," shuttup) and.... Inability to smile. Why so srs, fashion bloggers?
But let's get back to the subject at hand-- or as the French say, let's come back to our sheep-- I have two lovelies I must share in this post.
One: Poppy's 5 Questions that she tagged me in an embarrassing amount of time ago.
2: What does your last text message say and who was it from?
It's from Liz, who's basically saying (she likes to write essays no matter what the context) that Skype wonked up and she has to go but she'll talk to me later. We're a regular odd couple. But who'd be Nathan Lane?
3: Do you collect anything?
I used to collect necklaces when I was younger, but now I try to hoard as many posters and tiny art prints (the cheap-o kind, mind you) as I can for my room. Clothing-wise, I'm an avid fan of scarves and childrens' souls. I mean, what....?
4: What were you doing 3 hours ago?
I was.... editing for this blog? I was sitting on my posterior. I was breathing. Also I was juggling knives on fire. Just a regular night.
5: What's the weirdest dream you've ever had?
I was bowling with Lady Gaga and a lamppost when.... aw wait, that's real life. OH I KID. I think the weirdest dream I had was one I had when I was a kid and there were these anime characters from Sailor Moon (I was an avid Moonie, teehee) doing a really low tightrope at a circus and then one of them started peeing and then it was just weird and I don't know. Freud, did you get that?
1. What's your favorite letter of the alphabet, and why?
2. If you could use any medium in the world to create your masterpiece, what would it be?
3. What's the silliest thing you've ever done for your blog?
4. What's something that's intangible (so no possessions) that makes you purely feel that you're alive?
5. A tiger is chasing you through the Himalayan mountains and then you slip on a frozen pancake. What do you do?
Now go! Mush! Go forth on thine blogs and answer these riddles o'mine!
