ladybranwen: (Ballet)
Egads. It's been a long, long while since I last went shopping for ballet clothes. Actually, it was over ten years ago, and that was more like my mom saying, "that's the one!" and buying it from a catalog (whatever was cheapest, usually). And now I think I've narrowed down to where I'm going to buy them from and what, but... Maybe I just want my mom to say, "buy that!" and I'll do it. The ones that she found, however, are a nylon/lycra blend, and I found ones on another site that are a cotton/Lycra blend, and I think the cotton is better? Where I found them, the leotards and tights are cheaper, but I have to pay shipping. It, for the most part, comes out in the wash. Plus, if I get them at this site, they have some cheap warm-up shorts and a pair of gaucho pants that look like they would be mighty comfortable to wear just around the house. After all, I follow the rule that once I get home from work, I'm free to put on my comfy pants.

Ah well, I submitted my order. Can't change it now!

I also just finished my lemon cookies for Lynn, so I think I'm off to bed. My parents would be absolutely shocked to see me up this late.

I've been meaning to watch this all week ever since I first saw it on a reading blog. It is Meg Cabot's reinterpretation of Little Women. Using her Madame Alexander dolls.



Neither set of my grandparents (well, one full set and Nana B, since I'm lacking a grandfather) are doing that well. Nana W talked to me for a good half hour, even though we both had nothing exciting to report (as I'm still lacking a boyfriend, woe is me). I think she just needed people to talk to since Papa was having a very bad day.

So, is anyone up with the Chinatown to Chinatown bus from Boston to NYC and back again? I'm looking for a cheap way to the city in a couple of weekends from now. If you have, or know of anyone who has, had any experience with this, please let me know! I'm hopeless!

And, look! It's a picture of my grandfather back in his younger years. He's the one in the colour photo playing the trombone.

Mwhahaha. Now you know where I got my good looking nose from!
