05:02 pm - But, damnit, I look good
Car wouldn't start this morning.
Neither would hoppie.
An hour or so later he surfaced and helped me jump the car. I know it's not technically a two person job, but it's really helpful to have a second person, and I hate to use hoppie's car without him.
So I went to NTB.
Me: I need my battery replaced.
Him: Are you sure?
Me: Yeah, I'm pretty sure. (insert long back story about the history of the car problems I've been having.)
Him: Well, we should test it first.
Me: Knock yourself out.
...
Him: Hey!
Me: Yes?
Him: Your battery is completely dead.
Me: (thinking) What a surprise. Who'd have expected that?
Him: We're going to have to replace it before we can test the alternator to make sure it's okay.
Me: That's fine. Thank you.

Work is work and very busy. I can't believe they actually expect me to work today. Bah.
So I'm not feeling much better today than yesterday, but tomorrow, we game.
Oh, and I'm nicely dressed in an effort to make myself feel better, but this necklace is slightly painful.
I need gold split rings.

Pets your car.

And that character you were thinking about talking me into? You should totally talk me into it now. I'm feeling MUCH better!

Well alright. The community is marauder_life, and I'm igrewup. I'm still struggling a little to find Peter's voice.

It's better to look good than to feel good, dahling.

ah yes, dress to look good in the hopes that it makes you feel good. I've tried that (recently, even), and it sometimes works. In the most recent situation, I must say that wearing the suit stopped me from making excuses to have a difficult conversation (if I don't do it while wearing my suit, I'll have worn it for nothing).

It's surprising how many people believe it helps. I'm still on the fence. Yesterday it wasn't such a good idea.

It doesn't usually work for me and it has the added distraction of making me worry about tearing/staining/etc so I'm more self-conscious.

I don't think it's an issue of wearing "good" clothing so much as wearing bright colors and friendly feeling clothing, like a particularly soothing texture.

Like the skirt I was wearing was a fabulous texture.

Yeah, that I've done. Except that most of the time I wear bright colors anyway since they suit my coloring.
