“Eileen!” you, my non-existent readership, might be wondering, “what exactly is it that has kept you from updating?”
Well, non-existent readership, I’ll tell you.
- I’ve been making new friends! The gorgeous Gabby, my newest friend, has lately been of major importance in my life. Expect to hear more about her soon. I met her good friend, Aly (of Miss Lumpy fame) soon after, as well as her sister Anna of Baking Life Sweeter, Julia of Ms. Julia, and Victoria of one of my absolute favorite blogs, Lolita Charm. Wow. I actually haven’t met Julia or Victoria offline yet, but we will soon be attending the Daffodil Festival together, and I’m sure it will be wonderful. They’re lovely ladies, and I command you to stop reading this right now and go visit their blogs. No excuses, you people, go and read!
- I’ve been doing an awful lot of traveling. Last Thursday Gabby, our mutual friend Mike, and I drove all about Fairfield County and even had an “adventure” trying to find an abandoned amusement park Gabby’s boyfriend had mentioned. (It turns out we spent hours looking for Pleasure Beach, which more or less burned down a year ago! Oops.) I also went to the Upper East Side by myself to visit my cousin, JFK to pick up a friend, Jack (and utterly terrify tourists by dancing and singing exuberantly with Anna while trying to find our way to the proper terminal), and the Palisades Mall in New Jersey with some of the aformentioned new buddies. I visited many of these places in lolita, and consequently have stopped realizing that I’m being stared at–it’s just part of the scenery by now!
- I got my wisdom teeth out! If anything I say right now doesn’t make sense, you can just blame it on the Percocet, even though I actually suffer surprisingly few effects from that.
- I finally finished the Clock Ruffle skirt I’ve been working on–I promise I will treat you to pictures as soon as earthly possible.
As you might imagine, the last few weeks have been insanely busy–I’ve been getting to bed super-late every night. Now, however, I am on vacation, so I have enough time to update for you, Non-Existent Reader. Next up are some thoughts about friendship and what I like to call transmogrification. (First, I’m going to fold the massive pile of laundry that’s on my bed, just sitting there ominously. Spooky.)
See you very soon!
