In these days after the holidays I'm finding it absolutely crucial to engage in the wearing of silly hats/head accessories. It is going to be a long winter, people. If you pack up your fun clothes after Christmas it is going to be rather bleak through the next few months. A little faux fur does wonders for my outlook, not to mention adding a pop of interest to the utilitarian clothes our climate demands.
OK, scratch that bit about utilitarian clothing because we all know I'd have some sort of fit and go into shock if I tried dressing sensibly. Foot of snow on the ground? No problem! I'll just wear boots with my floor-length silk skirt. I did wear warm socks and a coat-I haven't completely lost it.

I had to make a trip to the DMV yesterday (Department of Motor Vehicles) to renew my driver's licence. I can't believe I'm going to say this but...they were pleasant and helpful. I know, it was like I was in a parallel universe or something. Anyhoo, the very sweet man doing my paperwork wanted me to try and take the vision test without my specs so I wouldn't have a restriction on my licence. I wouldn't dream of driving without them (because I can't see!) but apparently the state only cares about your distance vision, not your ability to see the speedometer up close. I passed the vision test (barely, and I mean I really had to squint) and while I put on my specs the minute I get up in the morning and don't remove them until bedtime, I don't have to worry about a ticket if someone punches me in the face, and I have to drive to the emergency room. I'd say, "In the unlikely event" but I seem to inspire the worst in people, so getting punched in the face isn't even that remote a possibility.
Did you notice I cleaned the bathroom mirror? I did it just for you! I don't know how the boys manage to get toothpaste on the mirror so high above the sink (not sure I want to know) but the two of them sure do make a mess. I mean, when I brush my teeth I just brush and spit-I don't turn into Buckingham Fountain. Sigh. Graceful pose though, eh?

If I don't see you before the clock strikes midnight where you live, have a splendid time, and let's show 2016 we're through taking the sort of shit 2015 had to offer.
