Just for the purposes of real life YA research, these were the dress up days this week:
Stoplight Monday (wear red if you're taken, green if you're single, and yellow if you're not sure) (yes, I'm serious. This is an actual thing. They do it every year and I hate, hate, HATE it)
Tie Dye Tuesday
Tank Thursday (you were supposed to wear tank tops, but the other English teachers and I interpreted this as military tanks and all wore camo)
School Shirt Friday
I wasn't really a fan of any of these days. Well, Workout Wednesday was nice because it was a chance to for me to get away with wearing sweatpants to work. But I was so comfy that I almost fell asleep at my chair during silent reading. Maybe there's a reason professional clothes are so uncomfortable.
Anyway, tonight at the game I get to drive the queen candidates around on a golf cart. Wheee!
2. I got bangs.
I'm still undecided, but mainly because I think they are too long. I think if I shortened them up a tad then I would like them a lot better.
I keep trying to take a picture to post and every picture turns out AWFUL. I don't know if that is me or the bangs causing the pictures to look so terrible. I'll blame it on the bangs.
I know this is very important news for you. Try not to lose sleep this weekend over the state of my bangs. (Or fringe, if we're being British)
3. So, Halloween is coming up. I love Halloween, and I love dressing up, but I don't have any costume ideas for this year. Do you guys have any costume suggestions for me? I'm looking for something that I can wear both to parties and to school (so no sexy nun or something like that) and that will be relatively cheap and easy. Are you dressing up for Halloween? What are you going to be? What should I do?
And, more importantly, what should the dog be? Gunner needs to be something awesome.
4. WIP update - I'm close you guys. SO CLOSE. I already got feedback from one of my readers, and I've been fiddling with her suggestions. I
I wish October wasn't the BUSIEST MONTH OF MY LIFE. I swear...there's one day I have invitations for FOUR THINGS. On one day. I'm not trying to be all OMG I'm so popular, but jeez...can't we spread the things out a little bit? I have a novel to polish!
5. This weekend's things? Tonight is the homecoming football game, like I said. Then tomorrow my brother is in town, so I'll be heading out to my parents' house to hang with my family. Then Sunday is a birthday party for the two kids of my dear friend. Not a lot of down time, but a lot of quality time with some special people, so it will be a good one.
Have a fabulous weekend, friends!
