I know I've been a little scarce on the post front, but some major things have been happening behind the scenes. In brief, I'll go from frivolous to scarily serious; that's the only way I can broach number 3:
1. We saw Morrissey on Saturday night and, as someone who only dabbled in The Smiths, I can say without any fangirl-ness that it was absolutely awesome.

2. Today marks four years for BF and I. That's the flowers and fruit anniversary. Three years was leather and crystal. I can't believe I missed the opportunity for this kind of stuff:
Leather dress, $135 (Isn't this in style now, too?)
Genuine Crystal Handcuffs, $98.99
3. My mom's awesome, amazing, wonderful boyfriend was diagnosed with renal cancer about two weeks ago. Were you just like "Whoa! Bondage to cancer in under a second!"? That's kind of how shocking the diagnosis was. A lot of people have been in this kind of situation before; I know we aren't the only ones. But it's heartbreaking to watch my mom cry over an uncertain future, and it's hard to not to feel heavy at the thought of what might be. I don't believe in a higher power, but I do think that being positive, sending positive energy into the universe (as new age as that sounds) is important.

Normal posting to resume tomorrow when the world isn't swallowing my head.
