I didn’t mean to take this picture so close up. I thought it was done taking pictures. Surprise! But I really like the look on my face. I think it goes well with St Pat’s Day.
I’m glad my mom doesn’t read my blog. She’d be embarrassed about the grass, I think. But it’s Oklahoma. Whatever. That’s just how the grass looks. It’ll be green in a few days or weeks or something.
I did break the cardinal sin of the 30×30 today. I wore something outside my capsule closet. BUT I don’t have anything green in it! It’s St Patrick’s Day – what was I supposed to do? Not wear green and get pinched? No, sir. I hope you can forgive me this time.
Would you believe I’ve never worn this shirt before today? Maybe I have and I just don’t remember. But, in my memory, I have never worn this shirt in public. I bought it in NYC – yes, two years ago – and love it so much and I’ve never felt like I had the opportunity to wear it. And then I realized I could wear it to work, and my whole world changed.
Not really. But it was close.

I’m really not adjusted to Daylight Savings yet. I’m also not done glorifying God for this wonderful season in my life where it stays light until almost 9:00, but that’s another story. I can’t believe it’s 7:30 and still light outside! I was able to take outfit pics after work, which was both thrilling and the tiniest bit annoying, if only because I couldn’t cast off my high heels for sweatpants the instant I walked in the door. Just ten minutes later.
But I keep coming home and thinking I have sooooo much time left in the day, and really, it’s 7:30. I don’t have that much time left – only a few hours and then I have to get to bed so I can be at work before 9:30 tomorrow. Working girl!
It kind of looks like I’m jigging in this picture. That’s why I picked it. Also, my belt is crooked. Cute.
Our satellite station continued to delight me today. This afternoon it played a lot of KT Tunstall, who I used to be obsessed with and don’t really listen to anymore. She was kind of the early college years version of what Florence + The Machine is for me now, so it’s great to hear her music again. That’s what I like about this station. It plays a lot of 2000-2011 music, which is mostly what I listen to, so I know most of the songs.
In other news, I watched the music video for Panic at the Disco’s new single, “The Ballad of Mona Lisa.” It’s from their unreleased album VICES AND VIRTUES, out the 23rd. It seems like a good combination of their previous efforts, and I’m really, really looking forward to it. It’s like one day they decided to drop the exclamation point and become a really quality band, and I love that. Also, this video is beautifully steampunk.
Finally, my brother passed his Scout Master Conference tonight. He’s a real Boy Scout! Or something. I don’t know what that means. My dad’s explaining it to me right now. After you go through the ranks of young boy scouts, you go into a rigorous interrogation to be a First Class Scout. Then, on to Star, Life and Eagle Scouts! The younger ranks are mostly about skill-building, and after you get to Star, it’s more about character development and leadership. So, really, I’m super proud of him. I don’t know a lot about Boy Scouts (I quit Girl Scouts in 7th grade and never looked back), but this is supposed to be a big deal.
