Hobos, Pioneers, and Bloggers vs Nature: Outfits #20, #21, and #22
Did you know that I’m a fan of hobos? Because I am. I’m pretty much obsessed with them. Clare can testify. Hobos make me think of trains. Trains make me think of the notion of inevitable “progress.” Progress makes me think of doing another 30 for 30 post and moving on down the line of my blog “to do” list.
Alternately, hobos make me think of trains, which make me think of circuses, which make think of the phrase “let’s get this show on the road” (a favorite of my mom’s when I was lollygagging as a child, as I was wont to do). That’s what I’m doing- I’m getting my 30 for 30 show on the road.
Here’s an equation for those of you who need visuals: hobo–>trains–>progress–>MORE POSTS! Or, hobos–>trains–>circuses–>show+road–>MORE POSTS! Bam. Now, how’d I get to thinking about hobos? Crap.
Outfits 20 and 21: N Sync: These are posts from the Thanksgiving weekend when my best friend in the whole world came to visit and we traipsed around Chicago, speaking in accents and confusing the pants off people who don’t understand the bond of those who’ve been besties since childhood. We’re annoyingly in sync, the two of us. But not like the really bad pop group; we’d never be a really bad pop group. We’d only be an excellent pop group (pop duo?). Anyway, this non-annoying pop duo had issues with badly lit photos, hence the few outfit shots. Enjoy anyway, or I’ll sing you an actual N Sync song and you’ll perish with the great pain of those who understand good music.
Outfit 22: No Parking: On the first day of big Chi snow Clare and I wandered out of our toasty apartment and played fashion blogger. By this I mean we took off the only things keeping us from freezing to death- our coats- and stood in the frigid cold trying to look cute for photos. Basically, we gave the finger to nature. We’re pretty much pioneers, refusing to be subdued by the outdoors. There should be a show about us: Bloggers vs Nature. It’d have very heavy-handed theme music, I’d imagine, but no, not music by N Sync.
