Day 16 - subtitle: (MJ, Jeans, and the Left Hand Blues)  
Yes, I realize it hasn't been that long since I posted for yesterday, but I'm disturbed. Veeeeerrrry disturbed.

I dreamed that I was dating Michael Jackson.

...

I'll just sit over here and let that sink in for a bit.

The only explanation for the dream is that I downloaded his This Is It album yesterday. I didn't listen to it, mind you. Heck, I hadn't even unzipped the file until a moment ago. I'll spare you the details, but in the dream I was one of his backup singers for The Way You Make Me Feel, and we danced together - like choreographed dancing. I remember thinking, This man is 15 years older than me and he's dancing my socks off. (Never mind the fact that he's no longer breathing. This didn't seem to be a factor.) I should also say that there was lots of kissing. But I don't remember him having a weird nose issue in the dream. It was normal. (Well, normal for him.) In fact, he was really charming, and funny and had a childlike exuberance.

My weird freaking dream about Michael Jackson has made me into a fan, I think.

I need help, apparently. Free therapy, anyone?


I have a new favorite pair of jeans. Who here loathes jeans shopping, raise your hand? I tend to find a pair I like and wear them until they fall apart. So when I found The Boyfriend Jean at Ann Taylor Loft, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. I went to their website today to order another pair, and guess what? SOLD OUT. They say they may still have them in the stores, not that it does me any good because there isn't an Ann Taylor Loft in Amarillo. *bats eyelashes at my mother who lives in Arlington* Flipping figures, right?

Also, my left hand is gimpy. I don't know if it's from all the typing, or what, but it aches something fierce. Send good thoughts, please.

Last thing... the howling at the beginning of Thriller freaks Katie out. Join the club, sister. I remember being in Melissa Lovell's living room, listening to that record for the first time (I think we were in the fourth grade) and almost peeing my pants when Vincent Price started cackling at the end. I know I screamed. I was a dork even back then. ;)

*dies laughing*

*still laughing*

*takes a moment to collect myself*

Oh DEAR, Carrie. You just killed me.

I should also say that there was kissing. But I don't remember him having a weird nose issue in the dream.

Thank you for the great belly laugh.

I'm off to sleep, but I will find you before this day is through. Ice that gimp hand, sister, because we've got some writing to do. :)

*giggles* You do remember that you're supposed to dream about sex symbols, don't you?

*raises hand* I detest shopping for jeans!
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on November 16th, 2009 02:48 pm (UTC)
I wish. A sex symbol would have been nice.

There's nothing more demoralizing that jean shopping.

re: the dream... *GIGGLES* ... I had weird dreams last night too, but I distinctly ONLY remember that I was going to will myself to forget.

Also, check Ebay for the jeans. That's usually a good place to look and they'll likely be less expensive :*
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on November 18th, 2009 07:08 pm (UTC)
They have lots of other ones, but not the exact ones that I want. I'll try back though. Ebay is great.

Ooh! Ooh! Jeans-shopping-loather right here! Yay like WHOA that you found an awesome pair. This only serves to remind me that the jeans I so love at the moment are falling apart/SHRINKING and are in need of replacements. D:

Thriller also freaks me out a little. Dreams are awesome. XD I hope your hand gets better! :D

*giggles* That's some dream now.

I hope your hand's better soon.

I loath shopping in general and jeans shopping even more so. I have a huge ass and a small waist, and since I'm so short, the length never fits me. After buying something I like, I actually have to get the damm thing all cut up and re-stitched to fit me. Since you are still buying stuff off the self, I think you are one up on me! :D

While laughing I have a screwed up icked out face. Just ew. You're hilarious girl.


(And I really like the jeans too. Sadly - there is not a lofty place here either. Drat! :( )

I ♥ boyfriend jeans. I have, hmm, six pairs of them, I think. Mostly Topshop ones but a couple from River Island as well. Very comfortable and easy to wear.

i don't know how you feel about Target but i have jeans that look almost exactly like that & they are Mossimo brand. Plus they were only $19. i should just send you mine. i wasn't made for boyfriend cuts :(

Hahahaha. I saw your status message on Facebook and wondered.

Ooo. Totally feel you re: jeans. What size are you? It looks like a few of the Loft stores in my area still have it...
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on November 18th, 2009 07:09 pm (UTC)
You totally don't have to go out of your way, But I'm either a 10 or a 12. :D
goeungurlgoeungurl on November 18th, 2009 07:26 pm (UTC)
It's actually not too far out of my way. If you're willing to pay for the jeans, I can totally ship them. Just let me know so we can take care of it before it goes out of stock again. :)
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on November 18th, 2009 07:31 pm (UTC)
Awesome. I have a coupon and I'll send you a check that'll cover shipping, too. Do I have your address?

Would you send it to me anyway? Persephone3333@gmail.com

YOu're the best! Thanks!
