I just learned that legislators here are planning to open the new session dressed in black, in solidarity with the Time’s Up movement. I have no idea if others are doing this, but I’m going to ditch what I planned to wear and go all-black today.


This is one trip to the mall that will turn out positively for my bank account. I’m returning all the backup gifts I bought in case what I bought people wasn’t quite what they wanted. Most of it is plum-colored shirts for my son. I finally got him to put one on tonight, and then he agreed to keep two.

I’m wearing another mystery item. I was hoping I could treat it as a dress and wear red tights with it, but with those slits, there no way I’m doing that. I had a pair of black leggings with a small waistband, so that was that. I’m skirting (ha) the edge of acceptable length again, but I’m happy with it. Assecories: the usual purse + annex, a costume jewelry necklace, and a sparkly hair pin.

Comments, discussion and critique appreciated, as always.
