Usher, the House Of

Last night, I was tired- but not too tired. Not tired enough to sleep. I tried, oh, I did try. For two hours I lay in bed and listened to music, nothing pushing me over the edge. So I got up. And stretched. And realized- I have business to attend to for work.

There's a mask contest at work, and I knew that although I wouldn't be able to wear it, I could certainly make one for the competition. So I scuttled out to Walgreens to see if they had any cheap fabric masks that I could paint. Amusingly enough, they had a sale on masks, but no fabric, un-decorated ones. But there were, however, foam ones at 39 cents each- I bought five with the coins I'd extracted from my coin jar and scurried home. Breaking out my fabric paints, I silently attacked them one by one, leaving me with a near-finished green-on black, a silver-on-black harlequin print on another, and a netted beginning on a third- to be laced with paper of a folded variety. I really, really hope I don't get beat by someone who just went ahead and bought theirs for six bucks, finished, from Walgreens.

After all, I almost did.

Truth be told, I had more fun painting them than I ever would have had just buying the finished one.

Now Doesn't That Just Figure

Dierbergs across from where I work has French Silk Pie.

And not just any common variety, mind you. It's the real thing. Tippin's French Silk Pie.

In single slices, small and large pies.

Of course, I don't need it now.

But damn. Doesn't that just figure...

Holy Gods...

I've officially found where I want to buy my costumes from if I ever get rich and famous. Brute Force Leather has some incredible designs- but if you look at the prices of the wearable sculptures in their fantasy collection, it will most certainly have you choking on your wallet. I'm particularly fond of the gargoyle armor, but the pirate map corset and costume has caught my eye for the renaissance faire (and what would be every Halloween after it).

Granted, not all the links are work safe, some might argue that none of them are. Peruse with caution. Oh, and if you're still trying to figure out what to get me for my birthday (or my half-birthday, next week), then there's always this shirt.

Mission: H.A.L.L.O.W.E.E.N.


I want to do something for Halloween after I get off work at midnight. Can we please find something for me to do?
