Crazy in the Head

I just can't HELP but join NaNo every year. I barely have an idea. But I do have almost 700 words.... *sigh*

Early guesses on the identity of "Missy" were right. I'd have won money if I'd bet on it. I really enjoyed last night's episode. This season has been uneven, but he's finally the Doctor for me, which I am very pleased of -- and I'm looking forward to the second part to see where this goes. (Of course, listening to the Doctor talk about paradox... haven't we already met a descendant of Clara & Danny? Mmmmmmmm????)

Wearing my Steampunk costume on Friday reminded me how much I liked men's pants -- comfortable with ROOMY POCKETS, which for some reason women's pants completely lack. I haven't worn 'em since I lost the weight, but really, I might have to go back. (Men's clothes are also more consistent -- if you get a 34, it's a 34 no matter who made it.)





At least it means I finally uploaded the pictures I took in Vegas with my big camera. I uploaded everything off the phone already. (I understand why people with smart phones hardly use anything else, even if I tend to mostly use it as a Gameboy...)

Yesterday I made this -- HIGHLY recommended.

Laundry is done, kitchen is mostly clean, I should vacuum. But I'll go back to Nanoing...

LOVE the outfits!!! I really need to work up some Steampunk costume for me and rackham to add to our stable of costuming options. I love the look of it, just have just never gotten around to doing anything.

Right there with you on men's pants, btw. I do wear women's jeans now, mostly because I finally found some that are done in a cut that actually fits me reliably and so I own, like, four or five pair of exactly the same ones. But all of my shorts are from the men's section. I love having decent pockets and I've also got a fairly high waist, so women's pants (and in particular, shorts) have a tendency to end up with the waist being halfway down my hips (when they're not supposed to be).

I get you on the same brand of women's pants -- but I was even having trouble there, since the ones that I was getting at Costco varied WIDELY depending on which country they were made in ("Made in Egypt" meant very loose-fitting; "Made in India" were too tight; "Made in Kenya" fit well, but VERY high waisted, while "Made in Indonesia" were pretty perfect....)

I stopped at Goodwill today and bought a few more pairs of men's slacks, anyway!

I agree with you on the men's pants for the most part, but they're also starting to suffer, or at least, the 34s I picked up recently did not match the size of my other 34s. However, I agree; men's pants fit me far better than women's pants, except I can never find anything in my (admittedly very short) leg length.

I love your outfits! You both look great!

Yes - and when I was heavier, just TRY to find 40-30s! I often had to settle for 32 to 34 length and cuff them. (34-30s is MUCH easier... and I will admit you're right; of the three pair I picked up today, the Tommy Bahamas are actually very tight-fitting while the others are perfect. Ah, well.)

I could never find any 30 inch length - which is at least closer to my length (subtract two inches!).

Still, men's pants always seem to fit better to me. I've got a bunch of men's jeans now, and should go looking for some dress pants for work. They're harder to find, of course.

Thirty is the shortest I've found, and I like that length -- I have a phobia about too-short pants (I was traumatized by "highwater" britches in grade school, and now showing my ankles makes me cringe).

It depends on what socks I'm wearing. If I'm wearing some of my really obnoxious socks, well. I'll wear whatever pants show 'em off.

I love the outfit.

I love pumpkin soup

Yes I was thinking about the whole great grandson of Pink thing too. I did like the episode (Dad nailed the villain based on a freaking window so I guess he's paying attention). He does feel like the doctor finally.

good luck with nano. I'm just pantsing it and hoping for the best. Vampires in Vegas. I should be able to do this

It's a VERY good pumpkin soup recipe. Barb wants to crumble in some Italian sausage the next time we make it (she always wants to add meat to vegetarian recipes).

Yes, he's finally the Doctor for me.

snort. I'm not sure I'd like sausage in it but then again I hate sausage.

it only took an entire season....

yay. way to go

and oh I forgot to mention, yes I too am annoyed at the lack of pockets in ladies trousers (but men's fit me all wrong) AND the inconsistent sizing of all womens everything
