first sleepover since I got married! yay! / saw 'Batman Begins' with eviltwin


My evil twin called me shortly after I woke up and asked if she could spend the night, just to get away from her family and get some time with me. I asked Ben, and not only was he fine with it, but he insisted on sleeping on the couch so that we could girltalk all night, comfy in the bed. I have the BEST husband. (and we seriously need to get a sleeper sofa!)

We went by JoAnns so I could get some more beads for my current project, (which is in a color scheme I had about three beads in) and met a woman who wanted to make a necklace but was totally clueless, so I gave her a crash course on the basics as Kristen and I hunted for beads that would work for this project. The lady apparently works at Gap, and she thought I should bring my jewelry in and try to sell it there, like she said some brazillian ladies do -- obviously she hasn't seen my jewelry. People who buy cookie-cutter don't want custom-made pieces. (although I will admit Gap occasionally has good jeans) Kristen insists we were there for an hour and a half, but I'm positive it was only 45 minutes, maybe 50. heh. It was fun though, as my non-crafty eviltwin admitted.

She and I went to see Batman, which was good but would have been SO much better if they had hired an attractive actor. It's so not fair, how actresses have to be 100% gorgeous, and actors don't even have to be mildly attractive. Look at Russell Crowe for goodness sake. Or Kevin Bacon. Or Jack Nicholson! Bah!

During the movie I flinched and cringed and jumped (because I immerse myself in the reality presented to me, like you are supposed to, dammit!), and Kristen mostly snickered at me and poked me and occasionally asked if I was okay -- I think she found my reactions as entertaining as the movie. *rolls eyes*

(p.s. note the date -- I have some catching up to do)

Nah, people at Gap would wear your jewelry. The colors and designs accent a lot of what they have, and play off the simplicity of their stuff. I actually get a lot of my clothes there (hello, what you wear isn't who you are. If their jeans/shirts/whatever fit, screw individuality of looks. Anyway, everybody's boycotting them because they're too cookie-cutterish, so it's turning individual to wear their clothes), and I've worn your stuff. Just because you don't go thrift shopping for your wardrobe doesn't mean you don't like fancyish looking jewelry.

hee hee, I knew someone would be irritated with me for generalizing like that.

I really don't know what people who shop at Gap like -- but I know that the people who wear Gap-ish clothes might like my earrings, but my necklaces would be too unusual for most of their taste. And I may be wrong -- I'm just judging based on the people that I have seen that ARE interested in my necklaces, and they all tend to be somewhat eclectic.
karmia ══╣╠══
I'd still say it's worth a shot. You never know-- they've got a lot of non-designed shirts that would look good with them. And if Gap's willing to buy local's stuff, why not try Charlotte Russe, too? They've got more eclectic stuff. Heck, just make a run through all of the women's apparel stores in the mall. It's worth a shot.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
It is worth a shot. Maybe soon I'll get the eggs to do that.

Wasn't at least half of everybody boycotting them because of their use of sweatshops? Although they're supposed to have turned over a new leaf recently, haven't they, joining the ETI. As far as cookie-cutting goes-same as with all cookies- it's what's inside that counts. Agree with you there all right.

(and as a note to bel)

Maybe they would be interested in your jewellery? I think the people who shop there would, but whether the store would risk deviating from the current fashion, I don't know. Over here the fashions are possibly different at the moment to what they are there, but all the shops are selling the same kind of thing. It'd be worth a try though, why not? Clothes are so bloody expensive in there that they might possibly give you a good price for your jewellery.

I have to see that movie, but only for Katie Holmes.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
She is a good actress, I must admit.

"It's so not fair, how actresses have to be 100% gorgeous, and actors don't even have to be mildly attractive."

I agree totally, women should be allowed to be unattractive too!

Always think it must be so very sad to be a person who loves acting, is great at acting, but can't get the good parts because of how they look. Especially men, women at least can be made-up and eyebrow-plucked and so on until they are closest enough to the norm to be considered attractive (if the tabloids say they are attractive, and they aren't too obviously not, then they will get away with it. Unless they are fat, of course. Fat actresses hardly even have a chance in art movies, let alone in big popular movies where there has to be romantic interest. Bah. Like in hitchhikers guide, that woman who was with the vogons and then got with beeblebrox. TOTALLY UNNECESSARY. It annoyed me that bit, incredibly. And then it ends, arthur with trillian, which is just wrong, she wasn't a nice person. He is. And beeblebrox with the other woman (who didn't have to be attractive because she was comedy) (but still couldn't be fat). Oh hell, better stop now, this is getting long and off the point. Sorry sorry sorry
