Well, I never heard it before, but it sounds uncommon nonsense.

So what does boredom do to you?

I causes me to play with my eyelashes and search 'goth' on YouTube. I came across this video:

This is the first time I've actually ever heard about that murder, but I really have to give my opinion on it. The Goth subculture didn't influence that boy to kill anyone. He choose to kill her himself. He knew the difference between right and wrong and he choose wrong. If he was a Satanist, that's not because the Goth subculture told him to be. That was his own choice. Most likely he was just as misguided about Goths, if he indeed was one, as those news anchors. He probably thought all Goths were Satanists or serial killers or cult members or other such nonsense. I don't know. I just think the whole idea of someone who spends their time reading classic literature by candle light clad in black velvet being seen as dangerous in any way is incredibly.....silly. They'll be spending more time mourning over the moral decay of society and pining for bat cookies then they will planning your murder, I assure you. Unless, of course, they are indeed quite misguided and uneducated, and don't truly understand what 'Goth' is.

Why I Should Stop Window-Shopping On Etsy

This incredibly beautiful $250 necklace is made from real bat wings. Yes. REAL bat wings. They've been treated for durability, and painted black. And they are amazing. That gold thing sitting in the middle of the cameo setting is a 24K gilt bat skull, and that was treated as well.

It's completely ridiculous how much I desperately want need this necklace. It would look perfectly amazing with my velvet burgundy blazer trimmed with black lace, or my hand-embroidered emerald and gold jacket, or any pair of my striped tights currently hanging in my closet. The saving for this item begins...now.

Check it out for yourself here.

Fall has finally arrived!

I'm so happy summer's over. Fall is my favorite season and it's finally here! I love how the weather went from sweaty depression to beautiful brisk luzzliness in...a day. I don't know the weather in your area, but it got cold quick here. I love it, it gives me a chance to wear all those jackets I've accumulated. ^_^

Is that not the most amazing thing you've ever seen?? Fumichan made it for me! She's so sweet. ^_^

Polyvore Groups [That you should join.]

I am now the moderator for 2 groups on polyvore. One was originally someone else's, I'm not sure whos. But they created it and then they left I guess. And I saw that it had no moderator, and I felt sorry for the poor thing and I adopted it. It was orignally called purple! and I've changed it a little. ^_^

Something Wicked This Way Comes

I finally was able to watch the movie last night, after having finished the book a couple weeks ago. And it was perfect. Jonathan Pryce was a perfect Mr. Dark. There was more depth in the book [obv.], but the movie did a really good job of getting the meat of it. A lot of the scarier stuff in the book was left out, and Mr. Dark's death was different. There was a few subtle differences here and there [such as Mr. Halloway smoked in the movie but not in the book], and these were mostly done to save time and keep the movie flowy smoothly. It was wondeful. I was pretty surprised when I read the book, because I mostly associate Ray Bradbury with sci-fi, and I'm not too fond of that. I've read The Illustrated Man and Farenheit 451, and I liked Farenheit 451 ok, but I detest The Illustrated Man. I don't like depressing books, and that book seriously depreses me. This one, however, was like a little pink cupcake covered with bat-shaped sprinkles. I will definitely being reading (and watching) it again.

My Home Depot Adventure

I know I shouldn't be seen there, but my boss doesn't support my "boycott Home Depot" views, and he sent me and my brother to go pick up some things for him at Home Depot and to drop off some packages. The package dropping off went by uneventful. Home Depot, however, was very interesting.
When we first walked into the door we were greeted by a woman who commented on my hat. I smiled and said thank you, and then we started walking down the aisles in search for glue. Then a guy saw me walking down the aisle towards him and he was like "Hey! Wow, you sure look cute! What's the occasion? Do you dress this way all the time?" He was so outgoing and forward and...loud, all I could do was stand and smile and nod. He then went on about how he couldn't believe I dressed this way all the time, how cool that was, how nice I looked. Then he looked at my brother, the Dummy, and said "Boy you sure got lucky." The Dummy's cheeks looked like they were on fire and he said "Uhh...that's my sister." Poor Dummy.
The guy laughed and was like "Well she still looks cute!" And then said goodbye and was gone. After we'd gotten all our stuff and Alex was checking out through the self-checkout, he came up behind me and said "Sorry if I embrassed you, but you looked sure look cute!" After we were out of the store he saw us again and whistled at us, and when we looked his way he waved.
So it was a very interesting time we had. And here's a photo of my outfit, just for kicks:

Oh no.

I haven't blogged in awhile [mainly because I'm waiting on the movie Something Wicked This Way Comes to actually come this way....], but anyway, I am now....in love. Totally infatuated. Head over heels, madly, uncontrollably, crazily in love. With Pillboxdesigns.

Srsly, I think there's a pretty obvious need there. And if I was only allowed one, out of all them, it would have to be the first one, that cloud of ridiculously adorable bats. It was the 2nd one I ever saw, and it was true love at first sight. [The first one I saw was the Nosferatu one, which was ok but not mah fav.]
We're in love, and you're just jealous.
