DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.

Back Into the Fray

After my year hiatus, I've recently started accepting court-appointed cases... since I'm out of money and all. The nice part about doing this is that I don't have office hours. Because I can't afford office space! So I was up at odd hours again Monday night, researching some issues for a case I was appearing on first thing in Tuesday morning:

Bad hair day! I dozed on wet hair following a 4 a.m. shower, then did the best I could before I had to leave for the 9:15 docket. It seemed to get even worse as the day went on:

Perhaps I need comfort food... to overcome the humiliation of appearing anywhere with that hair? I stopped into the drugstore after court to pick up a couple of things for Hubby... and was confronted with something I just had to try. Almost a dare, really:

The idea sounded weird... but... Yum!

I'm so thoroughly tired of these earrings... they look "amateur". Without the sentimental attachment of someone close to me having made them. Perhaps I should remake them into studs? Or just get rid of them?

I saw a nice pair of black studs at Lane Bryant... maybe I will see if I can catch them on a good sale.

I'm so glad I finally have pants long enough to wear these shoes! They have been wardrobe lurkers for ages... and are the highest heels I am keeping. I thought they might have to go as well, but my new ponte knit pants are apparently even longer than my other new ones. I'm thrilled!

I'm calling them my "witchy" shoes... *cackles*.
