[Saturday] "summertime and the living is..."
I had an unsuccessful shopping trip at TJMaxx this afternoon.
Has anyone done any research connecting the onset modern body dysmorphic issues with the onset of modern standard-measurement mass-market clothing? ‘Cause an inability to find clothes that fit you combined with the message that these clothes (supposedly) do
fit the majority of people has gotta mess some people up. [Clarification: I wasn’t feeling body dysmorphic, just pissed off at the designers, but it did get me thinking.]
My current problem is that all the pants I bought I somehow didn’t really realize feel like they’re nearly gonna fall off me unless I hike the waist up to around my bellybutton and feel like Urkel. I attempted the Petites section this afternoon but didn’t have any real success. Also, summer coming means
clamdigger capri pants
are all over the place, which doesn’t help matters any. I miss the days when I just bought jeans and I knew exactly what size I was and what style and brand I preferred.
My mom is going to take me to Sears.
It was 70F at 1pm. The temperature plummeted when a front came through -- 56F at 4:45pm. I got rained on during my errand to the post office, but I like the rain so that was okay. Pre-rain I stopped and chatted a while with the blonde woman on the corner whom I often see walking to the train in the morning, and her 14 month old daughter (thoughtful of the child to be born on the first of a month :) ).
I looked out my window ~5:45 and it was blue sky, yellow glow on trees (sunset I realized), just lovely.
As well as assorted errands, I also did my handwash shirts and a load of dishes tonight, so despite not getting up until ~1pm the day wasn’t a waste.
I don’t think this person
ever feedbacked my darkfic, but it was pleasant to see it recced.
Prayers for Skarda and her brother.
And reminder that we move the clocks ahead an hour at 2am (or whenever you go to bed tonight -- whichever comes first).
