From Hell They Came…

Had my weave taken out today… Meh. It’s weird to have such short thin hair but that’s what I get for ruining it with bleach over the years, I guess.

On the upside I found my long-lost Misfits t-shirt which I haven’t worn since April last year; so that was good.

Please excuse the hair/roots/general awfulness of the photo.

Making fun of myself is like a hobby

The amount of times I have to deal with misinformed and/or prejudicial washouts throwing the “spoilt brat” insult at me… Well, it’s just ridiculous. Often online, too… I’m never called a “spoilt brat” in my real life – even when I’m at odds with someone – because I generally don’t tend to act like a self absorbed cunt. I’m actually a really nice person.

But! Sometimes it’s amusing to live up to an image others thrust upon you just to piss them off more. I mean, they expect it, right?

Veronica Lodge is my rich girl bratty inspiration. If I was a cartoon/comic-book-character…

Also: PULP reference. Fuck yes.

Band shirts: 95% of my wardrobe

I swear, I find the best places to buy band tees. I love old 80s-90s britpop/alt rock/indie pop and buying their merch has kind of become a necessity for me.

I can’t attach videos on my phone (I mostly use the WordPress app – I hardly come on the computer anymore) but I thought I’d attach a mini playlist of songs by the artists on these shirts as they’re some of my absolute favourite bands.
