The Walrus Is Somebody Or Other

Photos show that I was much more rumpled today than previously estimated. High rumple rates observed upon reviewal of the data! (I am frankly shocked that "reviewal" is not widely recognized as a legitimate word. Or at all recognized.) Writing "rumple" makes me think of Horace Slughorn from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Here's a fan-made illustration that demonstrates what I mean:




In other fancy news, I have a promising date tomorrow, with a guy who describes his life thusly: "I'm a student with two jobs raising a little girl by myself. In my spare time I sleep." His occupations sound a thousand times more high-key and noble than mine, but that's probably okay. The reason I bring this up is that despite my predilection for older men, I've never gone out with someone who's a dad, so that might be weird. Any tips, in case it goes well?

My recent excursions into the land of eyeshadow have been inspired by Brightest Bulb In the Box, The Painted Rogue, Unpack the Box, and Matte Kat (in order of when I encountered them). Makeup blogs make me wanna up my makeup game! Although, to be precise, Unpack the Box is not just about cosmetics. I have a mighty love of quirky subscription descriptions.

  3. I envy your collection of bows and bow products. On the guy front, I dated someone with a similar situation during my undergrad and it was surprisingly ok. I love kids so that wasn't a problem at all, and the mom was 100 percent out of the picture so never had to deal with that. I presume it can weird if the mother is super involved, but otherwise, my advice is to ditch the social stigmas regarding younger single dads and go for it :D

  4. glad it went well! hmm i guess that would be interesting if things get serious.i had a friend in college who dated a guy w/ a son and the dad didn't really have them hang out all together much bcuz he had in the past and the kid got attached to the gal and then was sad when the couple broke up. maybe that's something to consider, maybe not. i have no personal experience w/ it.

    1. I can definitely understand that--if I had a kid I would want to protect them & have their lives be as stable as possible too. I guess I'll see how it goes & keep y'all updated!

  5. Your makeup is totally fetching. Nods and agrees with poster who said 'ditch the social stigmas.' Walk in with wide-open eyes and make your own decisions. ~offers crystalized pineapple~
