paint it black

if someone wanted to get beaten up, yesterday was the day to ask me to do it. though i've been trying to branch out from all black ensembles, this all black look made me feel tough as nails. who am i kidding? i AM tough as nails. grease stains quiver at the sight of me with my oxyclean spray. weeds shrink in my presence. i can raise and lower my blood pressure just by thinking about it. jack bauer learned everything from me. my only kryptonite is steel magnolias. then i am mush. a crying, sobbing, gasping-for-breaths pile of mush.
blouse- express
jacket- target
skirt- kohls
shoes- jessica simpson

HIT WEEZER. (Fav line from Steel Magnolias.)

Love the skirt and the all black.

(I saw your mom on Sunday. She is the best person I know. It was a sad reminder that you don't live here anymore and I was bummed out.)

You totally are as tough as nails. I am so glad you share the same affinity for black. We also share the same breaking point- steel magnolias. Oh, wow. I always think I can make it through without the faucet turning on in my eyeballs. And I am always wrong. ALWAYS wrong.

I think we were meant to be friends.
