[Edit: So, in looking through craigslist, i keep seeing positions i think i would be qualified for posted by PSG. Now, i'm registered with them, so shouldn't i be getting calls about these? I e-mail the woman tonight and get an AutoReply saying she's out of the office June 6-13. Now, shouldn't i have been told about that? Grr.]
The best gift of the day was probably my Firefly DVDs arriving. Including the cards that came by mail, i’ve gotten $305, so that was pretty hot, too (and made me feel better about the state of my bank account). Plus Tim&Carla got me a nice bouquet of flowers, and Heather gave me a nice bookmark (flat metal, moon, says “There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. -Edith Wharton”) and also gave me the best card. It says “Congratulations, graduate! Don’t let anything stop you! Reach for the stars!” on the front and has a chipmunk stretching up; then inside it says “Okay, they’re walnuts. But reach, damn you. Reach!!”
The Poussaints’ gift [to me; my brother got an ipod shuffle] came in a Tiffany’s box, which with the ribbon obscuring the logo i wouldn’t have realized prior to opening had my mother not explained it to me. (Tiffany’s has a signature color? Total news to me.) I thought it was a joke, because Tiffany’s is anathema second only to DeBeers (DeBeers wins with the “make six months salary last forever” diamond commercials, but Tiffany’s is a close second with the obnoxious Audrey Hepburn movie) but then i opened it. And okay i searched the online catalog and as Tiffany’s necklaces go, this was actually sanely priced [this, for example, is attractive and classy, but not a sane price] but... i’m not Tina. It’s the one that has a lowercase letter as a pendant. Heather has one, and hers actually looks nice, but a lowercase (script) “e” just looks like a little loopy thing (see). I would have much preferred a check for the cost of the necklace, and if Tiffany’s will give me anything without a receipt it would be store credit which is of course of no help to me.
In other news:
Online shopping, i think the closest to what i want is push-up bras, but from trying on bras and looking at the models in the online catalogs, i think one problem is that bras just aren’t made the way i want them to fit. I want them to literally cup the bottom half of my boob -- starting where it stops being chest and starts being boob. I feel like that’s how i used to wear sports bras (back in like 7th grade when i used to wear bras) but trying to wear real bras that way doesn’t seem to work, and from what i can glean from catalog pictures it’s not how they’re intended to work. Not wearing a bra doesn’t hurt, so i think i’m just gonna wear camisoles under my see-through-y shirts.
Continuing my trend, i was underwhelmed by Saved!. I mean, it’s not a bad movie, but i remember it getting raves and it’s just not that awesome.
Go discuss “Restless” over in Kate’s journal.
