The thing about designer clothes is that they are expensive. But damn, they fit well, the cut is superior and they look great. The thing about me is that I can’t spend money (made harder by the fact I have none) so you would think these two pursuits (the clothes and the buying) would be mutually exclusive.

Alas not.

But I love my new jacket. And shirt. As I obviously had to buy a shirt as well. But I stepped back from the gorgeous cashmere jumper. As that would (quite literally) infinitely increase the number of jumpers I own. (Go on then, you tell me how many times you multiple zero by to get one. Yeah, yeah, intellectual corruptness all the way.) Beleive it or not, I have no jumpers at all. I did have one at one point in my life, a large and excellent red and black boyo, but Cassandra must have thrown it out many lifetimes ago. I don’t really do jumpers. Never have. I doubt I will start now. Although the number of tee-shirts I have has also decreased. And the number of trendy shirts has increased.

Expect me to be a veritable unrecognisable epitome of sartorical elegance when I arrive back in the colonies over Easter. Which reminds me to inform the intelligensia that I am incoming. Hey, intelligensia! I am incoming! And I will be muchly pleased to be havening the meetings with you all.

  3. You were just jealous that I looked great in anything, even something as derivative as a bathmat. I guess I have learnt since then. ;)

    As for you, Mary, (and a bit of a delay in answering this one), it isn’t your rags we worry about, but we look for your sparkling wit. (Erp, that sounds like I am starting to dig a hole, so I stop there..)

Leave the dark corners of the interweb alone. Go to the bright spots shone on by the Beautiful Ones

The BlackStar Diaspora

The wulf insists on text here...and I shall leave it at that.

People I know

I know people who didn't work at BlackStar, and they have weblogs too. These are they.

News, politics and paranoia

The State is not your friend


It is a well-known fact that the Stray Taoist (nee Toaster) isn't as internally consistent as he thinks he is. Welcome to his world.
