Fun fact: I love thrifting, cause I’m cheap but I love shopping. A particular Goodwill near me runs a $1 special on two tag colors every Sunday. All items – clothing, shoes, accessories, housewares and furniture – are included in the special, including something undeniably fabulous…
A GIANT WOOL COAT.
Naturally I decided to take photos in the 80-degree weather, but don’t worry, I found a way to make it more appropriate:
But we’re past that now. It’s time to evolve. Now, I must give credit where credit is due – except I have no idea where credit is due! Who started the embellished tights trend? I know there’s plenty of etsy sellers with stunning, over-the-top embellished tights. Lirika Matoshi, in particular, is well-known for their embellished tights. However, we won’t be doing anything that fancy today. No, my goal is much simpler and much more focused: we must create googly eye tights.
GOOGLY EYE TIGHTS: A NON-TUTORIAL
If you clicked on this thinking it would be anything more than me telling you to stick some googly eyes of a pair of fishnets, I’m sorry to disappoint you. That’s exactly what I did.
TIP: USE A PIECE OF CARDBOARD, DON’T be lazy like me and use a left-over amazon mailer.
Also, I’d recommend something like E-6000 Glue. However, I used this “Shoe Goo” because in my delirium, I thought it was my E-600 glue. Turns out I don’t have any E-6000. Shoe Goo worked anyway.
Ok, no. I followed (yeah, past tense) this blogger. She recently made a list of unpopular opinions post, and obviously I clicked because that’s always interesting. The first prong on the list was about how Kayne West was one of her favorite rappers. I quickly commented about how he recently said that slavery was a choice. You can see that interview here. Then I went about my day, and came back to the biggest non-answer in history. Here it is:
A third person jumped in too, which made me kinda laugh. “We’re all human and we aren’t perfect,” is not an excuse for saying that slavery was a choice, and no, he didn’t mean it “mentally.” I recall another person who was “refreshing” for speaking their mind “without worry of the backlash.” Now he’s the first president with twitchy Twitter finger.
Whether it be shame, mischief, or illegal activity, many of us have stories we can’t openly admit, especially on the internet. Sure, there’s probably not someone watching us and chances are the cops aren’t really that invested in our lives… *waves high to my assigned NSA agent* there’s nothing more stupid than admitting to a crime via social media.
I want to play a game.
Comment telling me what type of story you can’t tell, using one word for each:
“Illegal” for, obviously, things that might get you arrested if you’re paranoid like me.
“Embarrassing” for, obviously, really embarrassing stories you’d rather forget.
“Scary” for stories that freak you out too much to recall.
“Paranormal” a subcategory of scary, anything paranormal or supernatural that you’d never like to revisit.
“Upsetting” for stories that are too traumatic or depressing.
“Stupid” things that you’ll never admit that you did, because you don’t want anybody to know the depth of your stupidity.
“Friends/family,” basically, your friends or family follow you on social media and somehow keep finding your alternate accounts. Or even worse, your friends parents added you on Facebook.
Obviously, we all have stories that would probably fit into all these categories but I’m talking about the creme of the crop, the worst, the cringiest, the most horrifying. Also, feel free to come up with categories I missed.
I’ll go first: Illegal, embarrassing.
(pretty please, or this post will be really awkward.)
