I was going to see a movie today, but DH offered me a trip to Goodwill to get out of going to the movies (he's not a movie person). But it was kismet because I came out with lots of cool pants and two new pairs of shoes. These BRAND NEW Gianni Bini boots (the stickers were all in place, no scuffs or anything) and these little European Comfort Shoe brand sneaker things with excellent arch supports.
More clothes updates later, but I had to share these right away, because BOOTS and it's not boot weather yet.

42 - for all my nerdy friends out there. Hitchhikers Guide was one of my favorite book series in the whole world. 42, the Answer to Life the Universe and Everything.
221B. One of the oldest fandoms you'll ever meet is the Sherlock fandom. It's over 100 years old and I'm happily on the train. Sherlock has helped me make friends in all sorts of places and brought me closer to people than ever before. Whether it's discussing the newest BBC or comparing the Granada or RDJ versions, the world is rich and vibrant and still causing a stir with the modern world.
Mr. Holmes may not have been beloved by his creator, but it just goes to show, you never know what will touch people or how it will change their lives.
And of course my big piece for the night was this traditional kerosene oil lamp. I grew up with these on my mantel piece. If you've ever been in a Cracker Barrel, you'll know these are on every table as a throw back to older days. To me, it's a combination of my love of antiques and a little throw back to the my Southern roots.
But really? I just thought it was pretty. Tattoos can mean anything to anyone, but this one? I just love to look at it. It was pretty, it fit with my current art, and it fit in a blank spot. To me, it's beautiful, and that's ultimately what I want from my tattoos, I want beautiful art on my body that I can carry with me forever.

But regardless I matchy matched all over the place. Tired. Hot. Fatigued.
However, tomorrow?? Tattoo appointment

The only real outfit photo I liked this week.
I was going to buy a moss ball for Toast's oversized mason jar to help keep the water cleaner and give it some decoration, when I saw this wiggly fancy tail beta male. My coworker asked if I bought Toast a girlfriend and I said, "Nope! He's got a boyfriend!"
But sadly Toast and Jam (and Mouldy the moss ball) will forever be separated by their respective HUGE mason jars. I did have Jam in a larger container, but he kept hiding in the lower portion of it against. The DH went to goodwill and found me a nearly matching one like Toast's and now they're both blowing bubbles.
Beta males make bubble nests which is a sign they are healthy and happy. Here's where they actually sit. On the bookshelf behind my desk with my office's trophy! It was originally flanked by candles, but now we have two guard fish to keep an eye on it.

Meet Toast. My new office fish.
I've wanted a beta fish for a long time, and I'll admit this little walmart purchased dude may not live forever, hence the name. He's toast.
But I put him in a massively oversized mason jar with a label on my office book shelf where he can live next to my also newly gift aloe plant (Orion). So, while I'm trying to keep myself alive and healthy, I'm also keeping a tiny ecosystem alive in my office space. Wish me luck.
