More about Girliness Plus a Plea

It's good to proud of who you are - if you like frills and make-up and shoes, and you know when they're appropriate and when they're not (also a girly skill) and you have fun with the whole thing, that's who you are. It doesn't make you frivolous or silly - I like pamphlets with superheroes and balls of spun sheep hair and applying sharp knives to innocent foodstuff, and I wish I had the discipline to use the girl skills I do have on a regular basis. I'm seriously hoping that if I get easy to apply makeup, I might use it more often. Although, if I don't, I don't.

And I'm probably in the middle. I wear skirts as much by choice as by religious doctrine. I have a lot of fun tying my scarves. I carry purses - sometimes more than one. Part of the reason I don't wear cute shoes is that I have bad feet. I love it when my husband stops in his tracks and calls me gorgeous. I just don't want to work for it. :) I'm as much excited as flustered by this whole dressing up thing - this is why I love the Flatbush thing of dress suits. Because of that, I know I can dress for any occasion appropriately without any thought or worry - the wedding suit is going into that arsenal.

And for those of you who don't like this sort of thing, or whose brain works differently - yay! You're who you are, and better to be true to yourself than to paint your nails or wear shoes that don't feel right. And today, we have that choice in whatever way we do.

As for the plea:

I wrote a back-up story for the Reversathon. Yeah, I know. Betas?
