The New Sincerity

The news made better

I don't watch the news. It sounds strange to some but I actively avoid it. It's either biased sensationalist rubbish or paralyzingly, depressively real.
Until I discovered this.

Now whenever I see any of the news and it makes me angry or sad I just imagine that it's being autotuned and all is right with the world.

I love this song

I really do.

It's is amazing. Plus the clip is wonderfully colourful and strange.

Love a nice hot shower

I really do. Sometimes I forget how much and then I'll have a long tiring day and hop in the shower. Oh the ecstasy! Sore back? Stuffed up nose? Gone. I particularly enjoy opening my mouth up and letting the water pour in and out again. It can be, dare I say it, a little bit orgasmic. Perhaps I should follow up an especially good hot shower with a cold one.
I wish there was a way of enjoying long showers without wasting water because I currently have to limit my time.

Playing Dress Ups!

I love playing dress ups. It's so much fun. If there is a costume party, I want to be involved. My cousin Fiona and I try to make EVERY party a costume party. It's fun! It's silly! And it's a carnivalesque break from the everyday, from the mundane, from being staid and confined.

I've worn some elaborate outfits recently - medieval queen outfit, kink Gothic Lolita wedding dress for a photo shoot (is hard to explain that one!), and I did have a 50s B movie fembot outfit planned for my recently abandoned birthday party (bloody health). I'd probably dress like the Pipettes every day, if I could. Because polka dots are just bloody awesome, aren't they?

But see, the thing is, you have to commit. You can't be half-arsed. Everyone has to go all out or it all falls a bit flat. And you get to pretend to be someone else. And cute (looking cute is generally quite important in my dress-ups criteria).

And with the importance of commitment to the dress-up outfit in mind, it must be said that the above photo is objectively the greatest thing ever. It combines two of my favourite things ever - dressing up like an idiot, and robots. Kudos to these guys for making them.

Sleeping with kittens

Is there anything more wonderful than a sleeping kitten? More wonderful than waking up from a nap to find a soft, warm, fuzzy and purry ball of love stretched out next to you? No, I think not.

I love the smell of a kitten, it smells warm and happy. I love rubbing my nose into a kitten's belly -- Fuzz Therapy. Can you be sad when you've got a warm kitty bed companion? I think not.
