I definitely don't fux with the live-action shows. I can't remember the kids on Barney because I was too horrified by Barney himself, but I'm sure they were assholes. The mascot suits creep me out, and the people-actors are always so plastic-looking and irritating. I guess they are supposed to over-emote because little kids aren't as skilled at grasping the nuances of human expression, but I don't remember the people on Sesame Street being like that, and that is one of the greatest children's shows of all time.

This tanktop I got is great. It's white but it has little multicolor threads sewn horizontally into it and it reminds me of sprinkles or confetti ice cream. It has a little pocket on the chest but it's not one of those super chunky kind. The fabric is kinda thin and transparent like you're meant to wear a band bra or tanktop under it.

But um.
How did I not buy this jacket:





And at Hot Topic I saw these leggings, and thought Penny would either find them entirely absurd or perfect in every way.


My mobile phone wont let me access my pictures outside of the phone apparently, so you get a stock image from HotTopic.com

Ugh. Quick rant that I think only the other dancers will understand.

I had the most hard and terrible ballet class in my life today. We had a substitute teacher who does Vagonova (Russian) method, and I've only ever done Ceccheti (Italian). Everything was so different, it was like starting over. Messed up EVERYTHING ugh.

I'm a dancer and I still don't understand it xD

My aunt literally just did what her teacher taught her and BOOM we did ballet.

Also we had Miss Shannon for a little while who went to providence college for ballet.

Well, the point is that the sub taught very differently, and my feeble mind and body could not adapt.

I purchased two chain belts last Friday from eBay and they came in on Monday (I just checked the mailbox today). When I opened the packaging, I was pleasantly surprised to find not only the items that I ordered, but an item I didn't order as well.

I got these lovelies:

I am so so sorry.

We only have one Russian teacher in the whole school, but she's very talky and explains everything she does almost a little too much. So I guess we're lucky...

If I looked good in leggings, I'd totally get those. I was looking at the cats in space section on the HT website the other day and was fairly amused.

I bought underwear today. I really need new underwear. Unfortunately Victoria's Secret discontinued their Incredible line, so I went to Aerie. Lots of semi-annual sales going on, too bad I haven't won the lottery :/ I get new underwear like every two or so years <_<;

That was my third unspoken vision of the future.

Hot Topic seems to have a healthy supply of cats-in-space related stuff lately:


Pizza space cats


Laser space cats


Fluffy glasses space cat

But by far my favorite thing on their website is under their 'Cosplay' section:

I'd like to get their dress version of that jacket but it has this weird keyhole thing right under your boobies...



At $30 I'd be fine with getting it tailored to be just a skirt. Or I guess I could just wear a top over it. Maybe if someone has smaller boobies it would work out for them. But I don't know if I can promise this dress that my boobies will sit above that key hole.

Barney was the worst. THE WORST. Not only were the kids insufferable, the mascot suit hideous and his voice nearly as unbearable as Goofy's but dinosaurs and not cute and cuddly. They are awesome killing machines. I fucking HATE when people try to make dinosaurs cute. I also detested the Land Before Time movies.

Children's shows don't have to be shitty. As you say - Sesame Street was great.

I love them! I want these leggings, even though they probably don't actually exist.
