A social life (of sorts) beckons

Isnt it funny, how as the weather gets cooler, my social life seems to warm up!

Of course, this year, it has the added bonus of a Thanksgiving week trip to the US, a first for me that I’m really looking forward to. Fine, it might be cold by then (seen pictures tonight of snow falling in Foxboro), which will be relatively new for me, though still warmer than my experience in early 2003, when I discovered the delights of minus 25, in North Dakota. No, it wont be that cold, but I should imagine it will be below freezing at some point, especially at night.

But seriously, I cant wait, just 3 weeks from now!

After that, the fun that is the works Christmas dinner will follow about 2 weeks after I get back, I booked the hotel in Leeds for that night earlier today. Only question is the outfit, the new (very vintage) full length dress, or play the sexier option, with the shorter, sparkly blue dress instead. I suspect sanity will win out, but I must admit I realised my legs were better than I thought after seeing pics from the recent photo shoot. Its amazing what photographic evidence will do for you lol!

Or maybe, the new sexy confidence is just the release of that inner Harlow in me?

Talking of which, and for which the travel was booked today, is going for the Harlow look big time, in the New Year. Yes, the permanent make up look, definitely inspired by Jean, including the beauty spot. Today, I booked the train tickets for January, to get the best advance fare. As far as I know, its only the Harlow look, not the Harlow mindset, but only because I dont think the latter is possible, or Paula probably would!

Who knows, when I have that Harlow look, to match the inner Harlow, I might decide I need to get a man in my life. Or a man might decide he wants me in his life lol! Either way, could be interesting. I dont know, its been a very long time, but when I look good, as well as feeling good, well, who knows?

Which might make this video very apt?

Being Boring

A comment that generally sums up my social life perfectly, I have 2 weeks of real fun, and even that is pretty quiet by most peoples standards. But this year at least, there is generally one event, the Works Christmas Dinner to break up the quietness, but this year, I’ve gone crazy, got 2 other dates out in November too.

It all starts on the 1st of November, when some lucky lady gets to see her favourite actress (well, one of them at least) in probably her best known film. Yes, Louise Brooks is coming to Leeds, well, the film Pandora’s Box is at least, for one glorious night. To finally get to see the movie in full will be quite something, though seeing bits of it, without an OMD soundtrack might be a bit strange lol! No, I’m not dressing up flapper style, because I wll be heading there directly from work. Oh alright, I almost certainly wouldnt have done anyway, but at least I’ve got an excuse for not doing so! ­čśŤ

But yes, I’m hoping some do so, all the same.

Later in the month, on the 24th, I head back pretty much to the same place in Leeds, the Grand Theatre, though then it will be in the Theatre, not in the side cinema. Its a dear friends birthday, and we are all off to see Oliver. I might dress up slightly more for that though, as I wont be working, its at┬áthe end of my week off on holiday in fact. Well, strictly I’ve got the Sunday off too, given my job, but besides all that… But no, it wont be a Victorian style dress and corset lol that I’ll be wearing all the same!

Then on December 6th is the Works Christmas Dinner, also in Leeds! Is it ironic, its the only time of year I actively bother to socialise with those I work with? Not that there are many other chances, but anyway…Its somewhere new this year, which is why I’m giving it a go, should be fun, I hope. Who, me, posh frock, 4″ heels, oh absolutely…not! Just not my style, and besides, my┬áknees are not a sight to reveal to anyone, too much surgery done on them for that!┬áPlus they would object strongly to me wearing heels anyway, even without the ridiculous height they would make me. So yes, nice blouse, nice trousers, flat shoes, and lets leave it at that.

After that, my social life should get back to its nice, quiet self, excluding Christmas Day dinner out with the others from here, but that wont be a wild occasion anyway.

After that, should be nice and peaceful until┬á‘Mary Brooks’ hits Wichita in April, and I doubt that will be that wild lol. Even if Kate and I do end up doing a tour of the area together, well, it wont be wild. Livelier maybe, wild, probably not! ­čśë Just a shame I cant get an ID (or the like)┬áin that name for the trip, that really would be fun.┬áSadly, not going to happen.

Anyway, the video, you can take this title whichever way you like about my social life, its certainly something the Pet Shop Boys leave to the imagination lol!
