Folks, today was a grey, rainy day, made all the more insulting by the fact that we had 82 degrees and sun yesterday - we even grilled for lunch! But today? Nope. ... Unfortunately, I did have to go out to run some errands and then to join some friends in celebrating their adorable daughter's second birthday. By then it was pouring. I went with practical, though not entirely pretty:
Yup, the Steve Madden boots make a reappearance. Rock. Isn't this outfit boring? What can I do. I originally had envisioned it with white jeggings, which was what I first wore, before my first outing for errands. But I've been a little bloaty lately, and I was already a little self-conscious wearing - let's face it - nothing more than white tights on my bottom half. On top of that, I realized that it was raining and...well, I didn't want to have transparency issues. So I cheerfully changed into the blue jeggings and did not regret my decision for an INSTANT. Outfit-choosing! So inspiring.
In other news, all has gone well with my bureaucratic nonsense on my home university's end. My poor advisor had to pretty much single-handedly (with my cheering in the background) the administration so that they wouldn't be assholes on the account of a single technical issue not in my favor ... well, long story short, he won and all is well and I'm still defending in *gulp* less than three weeks. For now. I've been asked to do so many things (at 6 in the morning, always! Do you know how wonderful it is to be SIX HOURS BEHIND your home institution?!) that I wouldn't bat an eye if I were asked to electronically submit a virgin sacrifice.
