Finally in posession

Of that “way cool” dress, I went with a friend and partyed 80s prom-style. Oh, my dress was heinous. Did it make me look like a blobby tube? Yes. Did I care? Not really. Sondra, on the other hand, looked hot. And the ladies from work (hi, ladies from work!) also rocked it in a major way.

Like, totally rad.



(well, that’s me, at least. All my accessories were either yellow or black. If you look at other photos of me, you’ll notice that I wear neither a. yellow nor b. electric blue. Also, I kept getting told I looked like Katy Perry)

Sondra did the Flashdance thing:

So, yeah. My actual prom really sucked, and this made up for it. When I was a kid I coveted an unnaturally-hued, poofy dress and big teased hair. I think I can check this off my list.

The husband wasn’t photographed, but he was awesome, too. He wore my Jackyl shirt and a trenchcoat with the sleeves cut off (plus some studded fingerless gloves and ripped jeans and cowboy boots). I was liking the Judd Nelson in Sixteen Candles thing. I wish I’d taken his picture.

And then yesterday we stayed in all day and I introduced Sondra to Bollywood (more than she’d seen, at least). She was suitably appreciative (we watched Om Shanti Om and Dhoom 2 – I’m easing her in).

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
