PHOTO #96: Comfy Socks

The weather was shitty today. Raining, hailing, being all cold and shit…so I bundled up, which is not something I usually do. As I’ve mentioned I don’t get cold that easily, so I usually sacrifice comfort for fashion. But sometimes even I want to be comfy. And these are my comfy socks. I don’t know where they came from…I found them in my house and asked everyone whose they were, and no one knew…so now they are mine (obviously after an intense washing…).

Today I finally got to see Michael Keaton. He came into the theatre again, and this time I didn’t just catch a glimpse of him, he literally walked right past me, bought something at the concession bar that I was standing next to, for no particular reason 😛 and then walked back into his theatre. He watched Lincoln. I wonder what he thought about it…no I didn’t stalk him into the theatre. I just happened to notice him wander back into theatre #1, which happens to be Lincoln.

And yes, I’m back to my old ways of sneaking my cat into the picture. Though she’s doing her best this time to hide herself behind her favourite blanket, I still got her in the shot. Get used to it.

My sister bought a super awesome camera the other day. A Canon Rebel T3, so hopefully some pictures from that camera will somehow end up on here someday…maybe…that would be pretty awesome.

PHOTO #95: New Pants

PHOTO #95: New Pants

I haven’t been shopping in a while, so when I was in the mall yesterday to pierce my ear I couldn’t resist doing a bit. I had planned on limiting myself to buying work pants, and shoes. But I couldn’t find anything that was right. And, I couldn’t stop myself from buying these. They are grey acid-wash jeans from H&M, $24.95. The acid-wash is not too extreme which is good, because I can wear them more freely. What I mean is if the design on the pants was more noticeable it limits what you can wear it with. And I have also wanted jeans like this for a seriously long time. Plus, I have this problem when I go shopping, where I only buy tops and no bottoms. So, this I will happily add to my pants collection.

I didn’t end up watching You’ve Got Mail yesterday. I fell asleep at 8pm. I know crazy…but I woke up at 3am and couldn’t get back to sleep. 😦 I finally did around 7:30am after watching numerous videos of The X Factor performances…So anyways, I am loading the movie now and am finally going to watch it. I saw it years ago, when I was quite young, and I don’t remember much about it at all. Which I am sort of happy about. It means I can enjoy it more that I would, if I remembered what happens in it.

Celebrity Sighting: Bruce Croxon. He’s one of the Dragons, on Drangons’ Den. Though it was a little tough to tell it was him. He seemed to be incognito. His hair was all messy and disheveled. And he looked like just a plain regular guy. Instead of a multi-millionaire, or whatever amount of money he has…either way I thought I’d share that sighting. At least I think it was him. They all sort of look the same…it really could have been one of the other ones.

PHOTO #95b: Ear Piercing!

I finally went and did something I said I was going to do. I got my cartilage pierced. It was pretty painful, but no more painful than I was actually expecting it to be. I had to do this post in two pictures because of the fact that my mousepad is broken, and therefore I cannot crop or cut and paste pictures, unless I steal my moms mouse. Which she is presently using. Plus, I wanted to show a before and after. So, the first photo is before she pierced it, she’s telling me all the cleaning processes and showing me the earring I chose, and that sort of thing. You like my scared/excited/nervous facial expression? And, you know what the second photo is. Clearly. Yes, my hair is messy. I threw it up in a bun because I assumed I should have it up when she pierced my ear, I was right.

Out of all the options that I had for earrings, I thought this was the most “me”. If it had been in gold I would have died and gone to heaven. But alas! They did not. So, I had the choice of this in silver, or a gold small stud, which is apparently more painful to sleep on and slower at the healing process. So I chose this one. I am in love with it.

I am really excited to start experimenting with earrings, but I have to wait a while until it heals. And that’s okay. It was, and is, totally worth it.

I can’t wait to experiment more with things, and finally do stuff that I’ve always wanted to do but been too lazy, or too scared.

PHOTO #93: Weirdo Me

So yea I was freaking out for a few minutes because I thought I may have forgotten to take a picture on this day. Turns out I took one weird picture. I was at work in the office, and I thought there was something wrong with my parting, so instead of going to the bathroom to check in a mirror, the lazy person that I am, I took a photo. Clearly my angling skills are not so great. But anyways, this is the photo that came of it.

I have nothing else to say about that. Other than look at my super long eyelashes! Or don’t…whatever…

Today was the first shift where it hasn’t been ridiculously busy straight through the day. There were quite a few moments where we all could just hang out and talk in the lobby without one guest around to overhear. Those are the moments I love. No stress, no running around, no responsibilities. The moment disappears quickly, but the fact that they even exist right now is all I need.

PHOTO #89: My New Cool Vest

PHOTO #89: My New Cool Vest

This is the new vest I got today! I’m super excited about it, it’s really awesome. There’s not much else I can say about it. The brand name on it is Vero Moda…

So today we had a big celebrity come into the theatre: Carly Rae Jepsen! I’m not a fan of her recent stuff, yes it is catchy, but also not really my style of music. But I do love her first album, the song Tug of War was my favourite back when it came out. I was pretty excited that she came in, I haven’t seen many big celebrities recently. It was sort of a weird event though. It was held in the VIP and they had about three people that won a contest and then each of them got to bring around ten or so of their friends, and they got to see a movie with her…and the movie they watched was Life of Pi. Now, I’m sure that is a great movie, I have no doubt seeing the crowds that are still piling in to see it. But if I were watching a movie with a celebrity I don’t know if that would be it. Either way, it was a cool gesture. And it would have been a pretty exciting event for those lucky winners…if CRJ had shown up on time. But no, as all celebrities do, as though it’s some rule they have to follow to be in the celebrity crowd, she was half an hour late. And she came in with about four big burly security guards.

 Now I’m no expert when it comes to celebrities, but isn’t that a bit excessive? I mean for one she’s Canadian. For two, she’s a singer with two hit songs…is she really in that much danger at a movie theatre? I mean, Steven Tyler wandered in off the street like it was nobody’s business last week (no, I wasn’t working :(…) and didn’t have any sort of protection. And then after the film wandered down Yonge street to-and I’m only guessing here-attend and perform at his own concert that night at the Air Canada Centre…I suppose that’s one of the things with some celebrities. If you really want to be popular you have to make yourself seem more important.

Either way if they are famous I will usually get all excited just so I can tell my friends that I saw them in person. Even though I would like to think that I am all cool and collected around famous people. I’m totally not. But there’s just a certain atmosphere some celebrities bring around with them that changes the way you react around them.

And I guess that my realization for the day is that there’s a big difference between celebrities, some of them just want to hear their music played on the radio, and others just want to play their music.

That’s just my opinion though.

PHOTO #81: More DIY

You get a glimpse of my super unphotogenic-ness in this photo. Yea, my creepy hand in there. Whatever. I know it’s weird. I can’t stop it from happening so get used to it. I did…sort of…

This is the outfit I wore. You may or may not recognize this skirt from one of my older posts. It’s the Mendocino skirt that was $10.00. But, last time it appeared on this blog it was a shin-length skirt. I decided that was not the length for me. I had only worn it twice in around five months. And so I cut it. I’ve already worn it twice now that it’s shorter. I love the length now. And I cut it so that the Tulle is longer than the underskirt so you can see the different lengths of it. If I could have taken a better angle of it I would have…

That’s all I really have to say for today. I should do this with more of my clothing. There’s so much of it that I don’t wear for some reason or another. And the problem might be fixed with just a little DIY.

PHOTO #78: My New Shirt

This is my new favourite shirt. My friends mom gave it to me the other day as a super late birthday gift. And the second I saw it I was in love. I love lace, and cropped tops, and dusty pink, and beads, and sequins. So it’s everything I love all on one little shirt! I want to wear it everyday, and I can’t wait to try different outfits with it. I was kind of lazy with it today, so you don’t get to see the rest of the outfit.

Otherwise today was good. I was feeling completely refreshed from my day long nap yesterday. And am looking at things in a more positive perspective at work. Which is good. Because I was worried about my mood lately. It was going down a dark path that I know too well, and want to veer far far away from.

I feel like I got a lot accomplished today. Well I better have I worked for 12.75 hours…I helped out on VIP again, this time it got me 6 bucks for only a half an hour of work. Yay for free money. We got some new hires, so I got to see them at work. They seem pretty good to me. I’ll let you know though, I’ll give them a couple more days to really make an impression.
