The teensiest of updates, as a lead-in for what’s to come:
Arrived; though not without sirens and flashing lights and a couple of tears that I had to suck back into my eyeballs before they escaped.
Shopped; Joshilyn was clearly the day’s winner in terms of pure bargain nirvana, but I now possess some aubergine tuxedo-pleated pumps that made me want to make out with myself a little bit when I put them on.
Clarified; to a certain someone that it was most certainly NOT okay to walk two miles to your own signing out of an unwillingness to “bother” anyone by finding out whether arrangements had been made for transportation.
Laughed; harder than I have in a long, long time. A dear old friend on one side, a dear new friend on the other, and something about grub puppets. I think.
