SoCS — This & That

This morning I was awakened by The Mister stroking my back. That made for sweet distraction from the weather that lives in my left arm. It swears snow or rain will be coming soon. My phone disagrees, but the laptop says the barometer’s at 30 and falling.

Without an accurate weather report, I can’t possibly know what to do with my hair. My arm tells me a straightening iron is a waste of time. Humidity is at 80% so perhaps my hair would enjoy air-drying with a lot of Chi oil.

We’re going to a party later.

We don’t often go to parties. I’m too introverted to enjoy much of a social life.
Me at a party is a multi-factorial situation relying heavily on the people, the atmosphere, the state of my hair, the music, the drinks, and the food. I can be any one of these people:

1. The wallflower, sitting in the corner, observing quietly, people-watching and counting random whatevers until I am at home in my sweat pants. there are 36 ties at this party…189 ceiling tiles…
2. The drunk uninhibited, witty half of the most charming token straight couple you ever did meet.
3. The wasted white girl who keeps losing clothes and will not stop dancing until she’s offered sex followed by eggs-over-easy and toast.

I have no idea what I’m going to wear. We’ve entered that weird layering time of year where all of my clothes and shoes seem complicated. It’s too warm for this, but still too cool for that.

I’m gonna polish my nails for the first time in months. This winter has rendered my nails brittle, and they crack in straight lines as they’re smashed into this and that. FIL says he’s had the same trouble, but then, he never paints his. I haven’t decided on a color yet, either. Dark as purple goes, red, or a peachy coral? Feel free to chime in about that.

    Peachy coral sounds like you’ll be putting out the welcome mat for spring. We have to go to a party today too. I’m gonna count stuff. Thanks for the tip.

    Oh I know what backstroking in the morning leads to. I agree with Dan Antion, peach. Of course your nail color depends on what you wear. But then maybe your nail color choice will dictate your dress choice. Maybe all of your choices will decide what sort of girl you are. I can’t remember the last party I went to, as a guest. What sort of food do folks put out now-a-days? What sort of bar. You make me so curious sometimes. Well have fun.

    I have weather that lives in my sinuses. Maybe it can get together with your left arm and we could predict the weather better than 9 out of 10 of the countries best meteorologists! Good luck with your party. I’m hoping for #2 because it seems the safest way to go.😉

      Right? Sometimes I get a weather headache, too, but those don’t always mean precipitation. I’m sorry about your sinuses!
      I hope for #2 as well 🙂 Thanks!

  6. Hope the party turned out ok for you. I am at the stage in life where I’d just as soon skip a party. Prefer to hang out at home. Not sure when that happened exactly. Maybe when I decided there were people who were not really friends, and I’d just as soon avoid the small talk. ☺

  7. Red. Always red. And red lipstick too, because it says, “I’m confident and classy.”

  8. Morning backstrokes are divine and a nice way to wake up. I like peach, but I go for red. It makes we feel all collected and revving 😉 I see you had a good time from the comments above. Thank you for visiting my blog. Regards, Jacqueline

  9. My good lady doesn’t much like parties either. She can like getting ready for them but its the going which puts her off her stride ha ha

    Dark purple. It’ll look black from a distance and will make people think you’re all gothy and shit and keep their distance until you booze enough to warm up to them.

  11. As a fellow introvert, I fall under #1. Hope you had a good time because every once in a while we can do that. 🙂

    We have a king-size bed so that I can sleep waaaaaaay over on my side and my husband waaaaaay over on his side. This way I don’t have to deal with morning strokes. ugh. But that’s just me. Anyway, parties drain the crap out of me and I usually talk myself out of them. I’m a great excuse maker.

      LOL I love to be petted. It’s the smothering cuddles I can do without 😛 If we had a king size bed he would just follow me waaaaay over there. We have a queen and most mornings, he wakes much nearer the middle. There have been times I wondered if I should get up and go sleep on the other side of him 😉 But I never could switch sides. I’m on the right, alone or partnered, since 1990 or so. lol

        I had to give up my side of the bed when I got married because my husband always ended up on my side. I switched and he has stayed on his side since. And yes, petting is fine in the morning, smothering not so fine.

  13. Sounds like a fun evening! I think I’d go with peachy coral for spring, but of course, red is classic, too. I’m sure you looked great! 🙂
