Happy birthday to angelmcc, nayad, tammy212, seajules, and Honeyed Goblin Queen tithenai!

State of the 'Song
I spent most of Saturday resting, which is probably the only way I got through Sunday's rounds of brunch, Slutcracker, and Tangled, and I am seriously exhausted today. Which is unfortunate, because today I'm on the go from noon til 10pm.

Girl Handbook Needed
I was never issued a Girl Handbook, so I don't know this stuff. Those of you with Girl Handbooks, there's something in there about what to wear to work + a meeting with your volunteer group + a Heisendate that you are increasingly thinking is in fact a date ("can't wait to see you" = probably date, y/n?), yes? I DON'T KNOW THIS STUFF.

I have chosen a semi-slinky black cowlneck sweater with an Andrea Scher linked necklace (damn winter and its high necklines; most of my best stuff is not chokers), jeans, and black Chucks with Ghostbusters shoelaces. IS THIS APPROPRIATE? I do not know. Fuck it. Ghostbusters shoelaces are appropriate for almost every occasion, per the Shadesong handbook. I'll go by that.

No Link Soup today because I was occupied all weekend and am very behind on the internets.

Daily Science
Men with type 1 diabetes may be able to grow their own insulin-producing cells from their testicular tissue.

Work, Peer Supe, and Heisendate. Then home to collapse into bed. So tired, you guys. So tired.

I think your outfit sounds perfect for your activities.

I mean obviously, it all depends on the activities, but I think in general the checklist for you here is a)work-appropriate? If yes then fine for both work and volunteer group. Move to b) Do you feel good in it? Then it is also appropriate for your date.

And then y'all can dress me up! We need paper dolls...

Your outfit sounds attractive and appropriate for most events outside the absolutely most formal ones! And, since it's a Heisendate, playing it a little low-key is excellent. I think your instincts are fine, even if not the ones from the Official Girl Handbook.

You are a grown-up. Whatever is appropriate for work is appropriate for activities you do directly after work when you don't have time to go home in between. I am wearing a suit to a date later in the week because the date is downtown after work and I need to wear a suit to work that day.

Warmer weather makes layering easier - something more staid over a fun cami during the day, strip to cami for date. Cold weather is more about accessories - sticking something fun in your hair, or swapping out more interesting earrings or scarves or what have you.

I think Heisendate attire sounds adorable :-)

BTW, I tried emailing you--Judah is late, and we jsut discovered that neither one of us has the other's number. Any chance you could email me at miss_lisa_ma (at) hotmail dot com? Thanks.
13th-Dec-2010 05:59 pm (UTC) - There's a Girl Handbook?!?!?!
Really, I'm going to need one...I'm sure it would be very helpful, now that I know it exists...

PS - I think your outfit sounds awesome.

Hey, I never got the "Guy Handbook".
13th-Dec-2010 06:45 pm (UTC) - Re: There's a Girl Handbook?!?!?!
Wait, I think I got that one. Do you have the girl one? Can we trade?
13th-Dec-2010 09:59 pm (UTC) - Re: There's a Girl Handbook?!?!?!
I need the Girl Handbook for Guys. And possibly a lending copy of the Guy Handbook for Girls.
13th-Dec-2010 10:00 pm (UTC) - Re: There's a Girl Handbook?!?!?!
Crap, I only have the Guy Handbook for Guys.

The compulsive completist in my almost wants to say "I'll take that one too". Almost.

But if anyone's got the Girl Handbook for Girls, I'm *definitely* interested! =>:o> (My passport to Seekrit Insider Information, Yay!)

Off topic...if you do a tell me a secret post (screened), I will post something. Have something that I want to post but not in my journal, and it may be transient.

I so like the term Hiesendate.
13th-Dec-2010 06:45 pm (UTC)
It is totally perfect as a descriptor, is it not?

It's much better than Schrodinger's Date, where you only discover the other person's romantic attention at the potential cost of a cat's life.
