Freckled goth?

I dyed my hair last night. It's now dark brown rather than blah brown. Derek asked if I'm going goth. I don't think I can due to my freckles. I don't know if they'll except me.

When I googled goth freckles I found this.

What is your opinion on freckles on goths? I'll just come right out with it. As a natural redhead, I'm covered in freckles. My legs, arms, and face are covered with the little bastards. Now, they were cute when I was a little girl, and they seem to do wonders for making people think I'm younger than I am, but I feel like my skin is flawed somehow. I admit it; I want alabaster skin, and I'm pale enough. The problem with freckles is that no matter how carefully you hide them behind foundation and powder they always manage to show up you can't foundation your arms (well you could but that would be a pain). How many of you have freckles? Can they work with goth style?

My next question is whether any of you have tried skin bleaching methods and whether or not they worked for you. I want to try them on my arms and legs to get some of the freckles to fade, but I'm not sure I want them gone on my face, if that makes any sense at all.

Opinions? Thoughts? Freckles?!

Poor girl. Do not hide your freckles, rock your freckles! Your skin is not flawed. She posted this back in 2009. I hope she has learned to love her freckled self and did not try to bleach her skin.

Happy Halloween! I went to buy lunch today and everyone was getting in the spirit.

So the Red Sox won the World Series in case your didn't hear. I was watching American Horror Story and then switched over to the game to watch the end. I high-fived the cats and then we sprayed each other with champagne.

Mr. Binx had his dental surgery. Poor guy had a bad infection in his gums. When they pulled out two of his teeth puss came out. He should be fine though. The vet said that even with the sore gums he'll be feeling better now that those teeth are out and they cleaned out the infection. Cats are really good at hiding when they're sick. Make sure you bring them to your vet for regular checkups (says momma Ginny).

One more thing. HOLY SMOKES AMERICAN HORROR STORY WAS GOOD LAST NIGHT. That scene in the bathroom with the acid in the face was freaky and the other bathroom scene with the tongue thing. GAH! Just a real good episode all around.

Tonight I'm off the Green Briar for some Halloween fun! When do I get to sleep?

Give me your skulls

This is Derek when he thinks about vitamin water. Kidding Derek!!

I have a thing for anything with skulls on it. I used to have skull rain boots and I wore them to death. So yeah I love this shirt. I had to do this weird semi ballet pose in the mirror to not block the skulls. You can see I am concentrating very hard here.

It's from Express. When did you get cool Express?

I walked home from work yesterday to get in a little exercise before it starts getting too cold. It takes about 50 minutes but it's a nice walk. I'll probably be doing it again today due to the Red Sox game. It's much easier to avoid the T when there's a game at Fenway.

Back in the day when I lived in Somerville I had to walk much further to get to and from the T. I moved to Brighton and gained 10-15 pounds just from not walking that much anymore. Ok ok and I'm also not 23 anymore but my point is I need to walk more.

Poor Frankenstein is just hanging out on the sidewalk and people have to write all over him. At least he looks happy and hasn't been deflated by a drunken college student.

On my walk home I ran into Jesse (I met Jesse years ago through Melissa). I waved hi to Jesse and was going to keep walking since he was on the phone but it turns out he was talking to Melissa so we had a little "conference" call on the sidewalk there. I love when random stuff like that happens.

Oh and one more thing. Go Dick! Can't wait for the Veronica  Mars movie.

@SaraSwearsALot and I discuss dinosaur erotica

I sent Sara a link to this literary masterpiece and this is the conversation that followed.

If you don't want to click on that link the name of the book is Taken by the Pterodactyl. I think you get the idea.

Ginny: I want to send you a link but I don't think you should look at it at work ha ha

Sara: LOL I can look on my phone!

Ginny: ok hold in. It's a book on amazon. *sends link*

"This is not your mother's erotica" LOLOL

Ginny: I know right?!
and do they live happily every after?
and there's a T-Rex one
he has such tiny arms how does that really work


Ginny: ha ha

Sara: I'm glad we're on the same page about dinosaur porn.

Ginny: me too, that's important

Sara: True friendship!!

Ginny: and I feel like the raptors would be like a threesome because they always travel in packs at least according to Jurassic Park

Sara: HAHA. They probably like to go to those key parties to swap partners!

Ginny: oh totally and they can open doors
so they should know how to use a key

Sara: LOL

Ginny: now why are there no non-meating dino porn stories?

Sara: Maybe dino porn with a dinosaur who doesn't have sharp teeth??

Ginny: I want to see the gentle giant Brontosaurus
he would take his time and then marry her

He could put the ring around his neck!

Ginny: HA HA OMG
He is a taken dinosaur!
they can eat romantic salad dinners

Sara: AWWW.
He can reach the tallest leaves for her salad!

Ginny: so sweet! I should contact the writer with this request

Sara: "We have the sex, but can we get some ROMANCE up in here??"

Ginny: maybe even a love triangle? Who will she chose? T-Rex or the Brontosaurus

Sara: OMG YES.

Ginny: I mean it seems there is just so much to write about in this genre

Sara: And nobody ever told us!
We could team up and be millionaires!

Ginny: 50 Shades of T-Rex!

The cats and I are hatching a plan

Derek and I stayed in on Saturday night which is rare for us but we both needed a night of rest.

What on earth is this Netlfix? So does he actually have magical powers? I'm slightly curious about this movie but I don't think I can watch it sober. Might be one for a movie night with Lil Anne and Fiona.

Definitely did not and will not be watching this. I would recommend watching Sofie's Choice instead unless you are feeling really down, then don't because that movie will make you ball your eyes out.

And Netlifx your best guess is waaaaaaaaaaaay off.

I could eat Chinese Food everyday. I would be very fat but very happy and then very depressed about my lack of self control.

Not sure if the Chinese food gave me heartburn but I was not feeling so hot in the esophagus Saturday night. It's hard to tell if it's something I ate or just nothing at all. I can breathe air and get heartburn.

Laser eye kitty. Bosco headbutted Derek and then curled up in his lap. We are slowly working on making him into a cat person. Good job Bosco.

Window surveillance time. Very exciting weekend for the whole household.

Also I was watching Murder She Wrote and Jin from Lost was on this one episode. One of my favorite games is to find people from Lost on other shows. The prize is satisfaction.

Hot Hits

Dinner and drinks at City Side. We somehow went through 5 pitchers of Bud Light?! I got the hiccups on the way home which is always fun.

The "Hot Hits" were not to be found unless we time traveled back to the 70s. There was a table of older guys next to us and they were picking the worst music. I'm in a bar, I don't want to hear 70s soft rock.

I had to take a little trip to the post office to pick up a package. I really love when the post office wants you to sign for a package but of course the only time they'll come by is when you're at work. I drove over and then I couldn't find a parking spot so I had to park almost back near my house and walk over. Errands are FUN.

I may have a foliage obsession. Sorry.

Hocus Pocus drinking game

The other day I was flipping through the cable guide on my tv and saw that Face Off was on. I got all excited! I love Face Off. It makes no sense, it has John Travolta and Nicholas Cage, it has great lines such as "weeeeeeeeeeeeeee! What a predicament."

Back to me being excited to watch Face Off. I switched to the channel and it was not Face/Off the movie it was some tv show called Face Off. The / between Face and Off makes all the difference. Come on tv! You got my hopes up for nothing.

I move on with my life as one does when facing disappointment. I then saw that the Bourne Identity was on but just kidding - when I flipped to that channel it was in Spanish. Fooled again! Why did I get cable when I can't watch Face/Off and I don't speak Spanish?

Ok, really I'm done.

Beautiful Pizza Days calzone. So good, so bad for you. I don't care. Still waiting for the day when they decide to give me socks. Derek has Pizza Days socks and cups. Clearly they like him and I'm jealous.

Very good wine. I chose it since we (Fiona, Lil Anne and I) were watching Hocus Pocus. I thought it would fit. That's how I buy wine - if I like the label I buy it.

I look angry. I am not really. I'm very nice. I just love this hat and it's been cold enough to wear it.

Solo is the cutest dog on the planet. I was trying to get a pic of us but he kept licking my face.

Solo as Yoda + evil eyes. Still cute.

 Max is not the cutest in Hocus Pocus. It's all about Thackery Binx.

Fiona made some awesome Sangria and Lil Anne was a Hocus Pocus virgin! We played a drinking game where you drink every time Bette Midler called for her book, someone says virgin or the Sanderson sisters do their synchronized witch walk. We finished the sangria.

Happy weekend!

Why don't you make like a tree and get the hell out of here!

I made a Cheater Pot Pie the other night. It was pretty quick and easy which it should be or I'd change the name to "too much work pie". I swapped one of the cans of cream of chicken for cream of potato. I also used more canned chicken (sounds gross but it's not bad) than the recipe suggested. Next time I will not be lazy and I will use normal chicken like normal people.

Kitty picture time. Bosco is a ham and he likes to grab onto my hand and just sleep with it like that. Weird but adorable. Sometimes I put objects near him to hold like a hair brush or the remote.

Mr. Binx is like yea, whatever, I'm not in the mood to be that disgustingly cute.

The trees need to get it together. Some are still very green while others have almost no leaves left. GET IT TOGETHER TREES.

My boss did not want this bag full of swag from a bank. He gave it to me. It contained a giant beach towel, a water bottle, a frisbee and travel diary?? I tossed the travel diary as it was small and didn't really have any room to write. I'm very excited about the beach towel. Who knew I really liked beach towels? Just discovering this today.

Silk robe my mother bought for me at an estate sale. Thanks mom!

May I introduce you to Cheetah DJ 5000. He is dressed as the sorting hat from Harry Potter for Halloween. He takes requests but no Nickelback or Chris Brown because he has standards.

So I've been reading this book called the Selection by Kiera Cass. It's really kind of bad and I know it's bad but I can't stop reading it. It's basically the Bachelor but set in the future in a palace and the winner will be the future queen. The writing is mediocre at best and everything is very predictable but the plot moves along and it's good for a mindless fluff read. Clearly I need the Bachelor/Bachelorette to start again. I also need help.
