i know what you’re thinking; “geez, Brodie, stop bragging about your life you glamourpuss!”
This weekend I’m getting my first ever proper nail art manicure and it’s going to look like one of my favourite ever collections (mary katrantzou fall 2011, obvz).
Also Bronny and I are going to swap beds so I have her storage space and she has my fancy headboard.
Also I have a crush on a supa kewtie who I get to see a lot and it’s really exciting.
Also I just started reading a book about Del Close and 22 pages in it’s already one of the best things I’ve read.
Also I’m eating vietnamese food and seeing the new Todd Solondz movie with my replacement Anton (his brother) tomorrow night.
UMMMMMM my life is perfect?
you come to the end of your menstrual cycle and congratulate yourself for remembering to take tampons to work everyday, and therefore not having to buy unnecessary packs on your lunch breaks, and therefore using up the backlog of spare tamps from previous cycles. Frugal bleeding!
I’ve gotten to the point where a ‘hive like this takes me less than 5 minutes to whip up on clean, unstyled, virgin hair. I did it 14 hours ago and it’s still holding up. I can’t wait until I eventually wake up looking like Priscilla Presley on her wedding day to da King.
Trivia: Westlife wrote ~wen ur lo0kin lyk dat~ about me, today.
This is how I feel about my job. Not pictured: eye-rolling, hair being pulled out, general childish grumpiness.
I had a really great night and then I got a huge burger and heaps of chips and came home to eat them, watch Jamie Oliver, treat that big angry pimple on my chin and Skype Anton.
This is a video of my roommate’s cat repeatedly trying to sit in my lap while I listen to a @lenadunham interview
Beehive, gold-tipped glasses, bejewelled shoulders and a patch-covered jacket. Ya know, just casual workplace attire.
