Surprisingly slow day for a sunday. We didn’t get any new movies though, I was super excited when I found that out. It meant that I could focus on other parts of my job, instead of just fixing peoples mistakes and dealing with guests.

I finally watched You’ve Got Mail. Wasn’t really what I was expecting. I’m not a huge fan of films where the two characters have no chemistry until the last five minutes. Don’t get me wrong, I love the tension between two characters that passionately hate each other and then realize later on that they passionately love each other. But, I like to see that passion grow throughout. There wasn’t much of that in this film. They literally hate each other, and then suddenly are in love…the end.

This is my attempt at holiday style nails/a rare Instagram photo. Mind you, I did this at like 5:30am, so it’s quite messy. I didn’t hate the way they turned out but ended up taking it off the next day for two reasons. One: it was messy, and looked sloppier in the morning after. Two: I couldn’t leave it on for work. I’ll probably attempt it again closer to Christmas.

P.S. Though you can’t tell, but if you wanted to know. The red sparkly nail polish is from Forever 21.

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.

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.
