Why is it impossible to find multipacks of cute underwear? I bought a 5 pack last night and it has 2 plain white pairs, 1 grey pair and 2 horrible pink patterned pair - once is a hideous floral and the other is a neon plaid.

WHERE DO THEY FIND THESE PATTERNS?
Am I being punished by the underwear industry for buying 5 pairs at time instead of getting like one pair for $5? I'm sorry if I don't want to spend $25 on on undies when I can get the same amount for $9.
Do they think that I shouldn't care because I'm pluse sized and therefore no one else will see them? Because that's not true. I have a girlfriend who sees them. Amd who may get blinded by those plaid ones.

Curse you Hanes.

I sympathize. I'm really peculiar on my underwear (cotton, no lace, full coverage-and I have a pretty big butt, so a lot of the non-packed "full coverage" ones are still showing my ass- BUT low-rise since I wear low-rise jeans), and it's god damn impossible to get anything but the walmart multipacks for all those properties. But MOST of the time, the patterns are god damned hideous, and to add insult to injury, vary from size to size. "Ooh, purple, solid red and a cute star pattern!...oh, for EXTRA SMALL. Medium? Oh great, ugly floral, tan, neon stripes and fuschia pink... nothing I want to gird my loins in. No Lasenza, your underwear is all buttfloss and I'm not paying $7 a pair even if it IS a colour I want."

Made a chocolate Irish cream trifle for my cosplay group's St. Patrick's Day party. It's a week late, because, incidentally, half of the cosplay group was at a convention last week.

But I'm looking forward to a night of green cosplay, green food, green drinks, green etc.

(Because let's face it, there's no St. Patrick's Day party more fun than one held by cosplayers.)

We have pretty much the same underwear requirements.

Just once I'd like to find a multipack of all solid pretty colors or of cute patterns.

Also - I wear khakis for work. I don't want to have to worry about the hideous pattern from my undies showing. I try to hide my plain white pairs from myself for summer when I wear a lot of white skirts.

I held the baby Aurora today! Her mom (the nurse) had to put on her funny looking hat and I was there......teehee she's so cute! The curtain rose and you heard this collective "awww...." but I had to keep a straight face because I was there manning the bassinet. Apparently my mom thought my two-second role moving the bassinet back and forth was funny. >.>

I didn't feel great about the performance today--I let go of my partner's hand during one dance by accident, and apparently a lot of people slipped. It's kind of a bad stage, I think where the trapdoor is is where it's really uneven so maybe that's part of it?

Tomorrow's the last show and I don't think I've fully realized it yet...

I'm trying to write a description of my Odette tutu for a scholarship application, and the limit is 200 words.
This is so hard, I'm only skimming the surface and I'm at 280 words. :|
That thing is my baby.

Just joined, kinda sifting around through here.

My friend and I promised to make cupcakes together but it looks like that's not happening anytime soon. :/

I'm also trying to make a sort of fitness plan but I'm not focusing too well.
