Yo blog readers! It’s Friday and so far today my back is feeling somewhat better! It’s important not to get cocky at this stage because I know all too easily I can lose the progress I’ve made, but the stairs this morning were a much easier obstacle than the last few days.
Last night, Thom and I decided to watch the latest ‘Beauty and the Beast’ movie which, in a change from its predecessor, isn’t animated. It is a musical though and while there are some musicals I love (Sound of Music, The King and I… a few oldies like that) I really can’t bear the other kind. If you’re wondering what the other kind is, simply watch Beauty and the Beast.
We managed about 8 minutes, during which they did the unforgivable thing twice. The unforgiveable thing is when they sing about what’s happening in a too literal way. So they’re not songs, it’s simply a way of telling the basic storyline set to music – gah, it drives me wild.
An example would be:
‘She’s writing up a blog post,
She talks of musicals
She doesn’t like the ones where
They drone on during songs
She’s going to have to end it
She’ll tell you credits soon
And then she’ll go do something…
… else this afternoon’
SCREAMS – RUNS AROUND – SCREAMS AGAIN. In the end we watched ‘War Dogs’ which was a perfectly acceptable movie which Thom says is based on a true story. It entertained me and I enjoyed it a normal amount. 6/10.

So I said I would show you the other top in the Blueberry Ace pack of two and this is it. Although it does come to hip level, and therefore below the waist of these capri pants, I decided the crossover was forgivable because I just enjoyed the look so much. Do note that you can select the colour of the top and a contrasting button colour allowing you to complement various different outfit types.
KoKoLoReS’s Greta Hair is at Hairology right now. You have to admit, that’s one hell of a ponytail/bun we have going on around the back there. I felt righteously proud of having such an appendage when I wore this out. Adorable!
Here’s some more pics including a ‘well lit, no shit’ shot…
Finally, here is the jigging for the rigging. Of course, I was born to be wild, were you? Please bear in mind that, as I said, the top and capris were not made to be worn together and do overlap slightly in their meshes, I think it’s forgiveable but here the only person you have to forgive is me, as the designers didn’t make me do it ❤
