In the lead up to Christmas and New Year, am having quite a few close encounters of the social* kind so have not been able to traverse the blogosphere much if at all, [I'm uploading this post 3 days after the fact!].
...We are lucky (I feel) being in the southern hemisphere. We celebrate the [western] festive season in Summer and it's so much more nice to kick up ones heels and be merry when it's warm! Although, egads! It's snowing in Australia today!!!. Fa-reeee-ky.
MORE PICS AFTER THE JUMP!
These pics were taken very late so are kind of boring blurry and yes, just in case you're wondering... this dress isn't my usual style but... I like to mix it up...although I did feel a bit....hmmm... 'mutton' wearing this!!! Not just because of the leg-o-mutton sleeves!! This was short and tight and short and did I say short??
....and I used to wear bandaids masquerading as skirts in my twenties and thirties. Okay I still do. I figure [ha! pun!] that as long as I can 'get away' with it, I will BUT... what the hell does "get away with it" mean? And will I know when I can no longer "get away with it"? And who the hell dictates this anyway? What if I can no longer "get away with it" but don't give a damn ?
Oh whoops. I can feel a diatribe coming on...and unlike my dress... my diatribes are never short! Some other time then...

* Close Encounters of the Third Kind... the third place is the social environment... the first and second being home and work respectively... the third kind... that's the epitome of social contact... particularly when we're talking human-alien contact... you know? Between your people and my people... J
