Yet another step away from fashionable...

At one point, i seem to recall (or at least pictures suggest) that I was in some way fashionable or at least gave a little care to what i looked like the majority of the time. Several things have killed my drive to look good or at least coordinated, or perhaps even, less than completely oblivious. Not to say that i don't 'clean up nicely' when i try, but really, how often do i try?

The monumental events that have killed my fashion sense:
1. Walking to class (in MN). There is no way i was wearing heels or platforms or even funky boots w/ a minor wedge. This led me from my coolio shoe wearing days in high school (drove everywhere).

2. Getting a job at a midwestern university. Really. the people are nice, but ever since i started working full time in higher education, i have encountered about 7 people who really dress nicely every day (not including the men in suits). Granted, this is one of the things i LOVE about my job, but really, i wore jeans, running shoes and race t-shirts for like a year straight and no one cared. this is probably not a good thing.

3. The ultimate killer: pregnancy. EGADS. fashion faux-paus to the extreme! there are cute maternity clothes, but they're for women who are really pregnant, not just a bit prego. The day when you figure out a way to still wear your normal-sized pants by involving a pony-tail holder, well, you hit a new low. of course this happens on the day when i am pondering if dark purple and brown are really a good combo. But, see #2 and you'll understand why i care not.

i think step 4 may occur after little 'Wolfie' as my mother calls the little guy/gal ventures out into the world and baby hoark becomes a new staple accesory.

I like Wolfie. It's a great in-utero name. And as for baby hoark, if you aren't into dry clean only, fear not. But that was about the time I started buying a LOT of black although hanging around with all architects also influenced that decision...

oh, because it's short for Wolfgang. And the mom thinks that Wolfgang Bijnagte would be a great name! IF the baby takes the hubby's name. i think Wolfgang Lein sounds a tad too German for me.

hmmm...I have quite a bit of black too. that does help w/ things :) good to know about the baby hoark!

i think some dark purples and browns go together but i'm starting to wonder if my dark purple shirt and dark brown pants go...especially w/ the black shoes (I don't own brown shoes except for sandles and these goofy platforms i rarely wear--w/ all the black clothing, it seemed kind of silly).

Wolf Bijnagte. Hmmm. Maybe the time Wolfie grows up people will have forgotten about Wolf Blitzer. And wasnt Wolfgang Lein indicted at Nuremburg? Bad bad bad. WAYYYYY too German.

Floyd suggests naming the kid Fuckface.

yeah, i think that's actually the official term for the first and second trimesters, Kari-Cita. I know my frumpitude has notched up considerably. And you are not frumpy, you are awesome!!!

hmmm, not sure about that on Floyd, but i am planning on teaching the baby to hiss as soon as it's ready. Wouldn't that be so fucking cute? so when someone shoves their face into the stroller and ooohs and ahhs about how cute it is, it can hiss and bite. i think that'll be awesome. And knowing the baby's aunties, you can be sure it'll be swearing early!

Motion has been moved and seconded. The name Fuckface is hereby adopted.

But Jege, Amy would be so jealous if i named the baby after you.

i think it's a new toy...or sexual position: "oh honey, i'm so bored w/ doggy style, let's try ze furbb tonight!"
