Today I went and bought the dress and shoes for my sister’s wedding. Sister doesn’t care what dress the bridesmaids choose as long as they’re the same color, and the store actually had a dress I really liked in the right size and color! I had just assumed they’d have to order it, but I was able to bring it home today.
I won’t be wearing it with the athletic socks, though, I swear. I got a pair of pretty flats (with just a little wedge; I can’t wear heels because my joints are so loose I’ll sprain an ankle) with a peep toe, but they have to dye those to match my dress.
One of my friends suggested I could pin some white squares at the top after the wedding for a TARDIS cosplay. I approve!
Then I came home, and my bike was on the front porch. I had to wait until my landlady and her partner got home because I needed to borrow some tools. (Do not try to loosen a bolt with pliers because they will slip and pinch the hell out of your finger.) Turns out her partner spent 5 years working at a bike shop, so he knew exactly how to put it all together.
They’re not great shots because the hallway is too narrow for me to get far enough away, but isn’t it cute? I feel like I need to buy a 50’s wardrobe to go with it! I did get a helmet, light, and lock for it. I was missing one nut (and no, I don’t mean myself), but my landlady’s partner said the bike shop in town will probably just give me one because they have tons of them lying around. But I cant really ride it much until I get that or my wheel might pop off. I imagine that wouldn’t work very well.
We’re leaving tomorrow evening for the convention. I’ll try to post an update about my GI appointment, but there may not be any posts until Sunday or Monday. But don’t worry; it just means I’m having fun at the convention.
