Happy Happy


My par­ents gave me a paraf­fin wax bath thingie for Christ­mas. They actu­al­ly gave me some­thing I real­ly want­ed! They also gave me a very nice house­coat, which actu­al­ly fits (to my great sur­prise). And is pret­ty and comfy.

But the wax thing—swoon! I love it. It feels SO good on achy hands and feet, and it makes my skin all nice and soft. shad­owkatt tried it today too, and she likes it as well. I’d hap­pi­ly just dip myself in one of these things up to my neck. Seri­ous­ly. I need to check out the near­est beau­ty sup­ply place for the wax and plas­tic lin­ers, and pos­si­bly some more of the lit­tle mitts. Damned if I’m going to wait to order that stuff from Revlon—and I fig­ure theirs will be more expen­sive, too.

So don’t be sur­prised, if you vis­it my home, if you should find me encas­ing your extrem­i­ties in hot wax. I feel like the paraf­fin evan­ge­list, baby!

We got god­dessin­ga, The Son, and Lit­tle Miss back home yes­ter­day, and got to have lunch with greyknight. GiG kept G with her for the night. I soon dis­cov­ered that I did not have a key to Vir­ginia, sam­bear’s car, with me. Eeep! So I end­ed up dri­ving Eliz­a­beth (GiG’s vehi­cle) as shad­owkatt and I went to meet nae­sa and nor­mal.

nae­sa is alter­ing the pat­tern for my cos­tume for Scar­let­t’s par­ty! Yay! I’m so excit­ed. We got the fab­ric. My skirt and blouse will be a love­ly bright teal satiny fab­ric. The bloomers are a satiny black. The vest is black vel­veteen with gold rib­bon trim, and the rib­bon has Celtic knot­work on it! nae­sa is so wonderful! 

I had got­ten extreme­ly depressed because a pro­fes­sion­al seam­stress had told isar­ma that the pat­tern could­n’t be altered to fit me at all, so I was feel­ing extreme­ly fat and ugly—like I should just drop out of the group com­plete­ly because I was sure nobody would want to see me stand­ing up in front of them. I’m not whol­ly over that yet.

I still need to fig­ure out footwear and find a black garter, and we have to dress sam­bear.

I need to get the house ready now. god­dessin­ga, greyknight and fam­i­ly should be arriv­ing in a few hours!
