Good Hair

September 6th, 2011 by Selise

OK, are you ready for internal dialogue behind this blatant display of vanity? Here goes: Wow. My hair has gone really good today. Sucks that the rest of me is all tired and spotty and not holding up their end.You know, the blogosphere hasn’t really seen my new hair cut. Aw man, this would be a good day to show them. If only I’d done my make up and stuff.Maybe I should do my make up and stuff.Hmmm, nah I can’t be bothered.Hey, The Man is pretty great on MS Paint,

In Which I Solve The Kitten’s Problem

July 7th, 2011 by Selise

I’m here! I am! I just…shall I be honest? OK…I just bought a Mac and by golly I’m still trying to figure out how to work it!  I’ve got a pretty good grasp on it now. Much better than the first few days when I looked something like that kitten on a branch, you know, the motivational one. “Hang In There”. I’ve got a better idea, go ahead and retract your claws, land on the ground, take a nap and then call someone that knows how to climb a tree properly.

Let’s Get The Old Band Back Together Again

June 29th, 2011 by Selise

I’ve done a lot of reminiscing today.  Looking back through old posts I came across this one and immediately embarked on a mission to find those grey gloves. They’re so soft! And I love them! And, sure, I’d completely forgotten they existed until I saw that post but…want! Now! I didn’t find them *sob*, but I did re-discover these tights. And hey, wouldn’t you know…I’m wearing the same flanno. The thing that tugged the most on my heartstrings though is a video I found on my phone from way back

Who’s Gonna Drive You Home? Me.

June 14th, 2011 by Selise

Today is a bit of a big day. A nerve-wracking, yet exhilarating day. My first driving lesson. Please excuse the yawn… turns out being this excited/freaked out is exhausting! Yes, I know I’m not a teenager. Yes, I know I’m a little overdue. But for a plethora of reasons I’ve been a non-driver, up until now. I thought, to honour the occasion, I should wear something that I would have been happy to wear had I got my license at the, you know, conventional age. But really, who am I

Sunshine And

April 13th, 2011 by Selise

We went to see Reggie Watts last night. Oh man, I don’t even remember exactly what it was that made my cheeks burn from laughing so hard but I think we can safely say it was “everything” and leave it at that. Only, actually, I won’t leave it at that. I’ll say this: Go and see him if you can! The dude is…he’s really good, OK? Just go. You know what made it even better last night? It was seated! At The Tivoli! Yes, I am officially an old person

Baby It’s Cold Outside

April 5th, 2011 by Selise

It is! It really is! I didn’t want to get my hopes up too early. In fact, I was beginning to question whether it was actually ever going to be cold again. Or in fact, if it had ever really been cold in the first place. Maybe I’d imagined it. Surely I never actually WORE tights. And with socks? And scarves and fingerless gloves and *shock* cardigans? Couldn’t be.  But it’s back! In fact I am wearing a cardigan right now. A new cardigan. That I love. And I’m chomping

Only The Good Dine Young

March 29th, 2011 by Selise

We’ve got a long overdue dinner engagement with Boozeman tonight. I’m stoked. Last time we tried to do this we didn’t even make it to the restaurant. Instead we drank Bloody Mary’s all night at The Bowery. I’m certainly not complaining. In fact I could sure go one right now. And not only am I pumped to see dear Hole Punch but it’s an opportunity to get dressed! Hooray! I about BOUNDED to my wardrobe in poorly disguised anticipation only to be somewhat disappointed. Did I dare utter those words

Looking Back

March 2nd, 2011 by Selise

Note: I was supposed to post this last night but I fell asleep. Yep, I’m a regular rock star up in here. It’s autumn today! And in a fit of sentimentality I took a look back to see what I was wearing this time a year ago.  Awww, look at me. So smiley in the rain! And so business-y. I gave that skirt to Goodwill. I’m pretty sure the shirt is gone too. These days I have no need for “corporate” clothes. I still have the vest though. You can’t

I Am Not Afraid

February 8th, 2011 by Selise

 Mood board assessment piece It’s raining. With all of the flooding and cyclones I’m afraid to say that I love the rain. But those of you that know me (lucky things) know that I do. I really, really love the rain. And I shouldn’t be ashamed to say it because I love the rain, I don’t love flooding and devastation. The rain is a little bit cold today. And that excites me because it reminds me that soon it will be cold for reals. And I will be able to

Me, Me, Me

January 25th, 2011 by Selise

 This is a jar of things that I like. It sits on my desk. Approximately a hundred years ago, the ever-so-talented Kat of Kat’s Creations tagged me in a Q&A post. Given that it’s hot out and I have the day off I am wearing clothes that essentially don’t touch me. And while I’m tres comfortable, I’m not necessarily winning any style awards. Unless it’s the Award for Comfortable Clothes That Don’t Touch You. In which case, I’d like to thank the academy. I’ll just get on with it shall
