Valerie tweets the day

I fear my outfit posts will be a bit rare for the next few days — wait till, say, February the 17th, when uni work officially starts (and procrastination becomes the activity for the day). I have bought these shoes recently, which look far better in real life than they do online:

They’re from Wittner and are my new favourite shoes, though they don’t work with everything I own. The white part is closer to a yellow-toned beige* than a flat white, so the contrast isn’t so stark. I’ll be wearing them on Thursday and will take outfit shots then!

(*Wittner calls them ‘flesh’ or ‘nude’ or something. I prefer not to use the phrase ‘nude’ to describe that palette of colours, as it suggests that white skin is neutral and default and the norm… thus rendering skintones other than white, well, ‘other’. There are ‘normal’ flesh tones,  and there are ‘special’ flesh tones. Like Asian skintones. They’re not normal; they’re Asian. Pfft, Asians being normal; how absurd. Frak’s sake, fashionsphere, Crayola changed the name of their crayon from ‘flesh’ to ‘peach’. The crayons are beating you at being socio-culturally aware!)

Till then, I’m giving you bits of Valerie. Who has incidentally begun taking notes on what I say, in case she can use them for… who knows what. For now, they will live on the bloggie XD.

 

Valerie tweets the day!

10.57: ‘CARS LIKE ELECTRONS! ZOOMING AROUND ON… SILVER THINGS! YOU KNOW! IN COMPUTERS!’ -A. yelling in the car again.

10.59: A. gasped. ‘The entire world… IS A COMPUTER. AAAH. Oh my god! Valerie!  I’m a genius! Oh wait. Wait. Douglas Adams wrote that. Mice.’

11.15: Is bemused. Why is A. on the bed behind a wall of pillows? — Ah. Apparently, it’s a fort.

1.25: Valerie ducked behind the walls of her pillow-castle. She could hear Andrea scrabbling about on the floor beneath the bed. The plan: A. would likely attack weaker side; upon attack, sock A. with pillow. Unless A. comes up from behind, in which case…erm…

1.26: A. comes up from behind.

1.27: Screamed. Then A. screamed. Why.

1.28: V. thinks that her brother can probably hear their terrified screams from the living room.

3.15: Watching Doctor Who. FORTY-TWO MINUTES TO SAVE THE SHIP, SAVE THE CREW, RETRIEVE THE TARDIS, RESCUE MARTHA (AND THEN THE DOCTOR), AND STOP THE CREEPY SUN-MEN ZOMBIES. Head will explode from excitement.

 

 

Ah, uni life. Play hard, (avoid) study harder.

  1. love those shoes!!! and what are you talking about? there is more than one skin colour????

  2. I heart your thoughts on particular colours being ‘neutral’ and the like. My brown skin is pefectly normal, tyvm, unless it’s got some weird cactus-like growth on it or something.

    Heh, your day sounds fun. It’s been years since I built a successful fort. *reminisces*
