socks and cat

It hurts but I like it

I had some energy to burn tonight so I weeded through my closet to try and put together a new costume for when I'm go-go dancing at the costume ball night at the Vogue this Saturday. I have this chainmail top that I always wear over a dress much like the model is doing in this picture:




I took the chainmail top and paired it with a tiny PVC bikini top and a chainmail hip belt, my new pink and purple dread hair falls and other belly dance bits and pieces to make a goth belly dance costume. I'll most likely complete this with stompy lace up gothy boots:




The only drawback to this costume idea is that wearing the chainmail top over skin instead of over a dress means the weight of it digs into my neck and will hurt by the end of the night. I wish I had a swatch of soft, fake fur to stuff under the part that will dig into the back of my neck...but I don't. Any suggestions as to what I could layer between the chains and the back of my neck so this costume doesn't hurt me?

found it

I believe I may have found the perfect mp3 player for me:




It's the Sansa Fuze. It gets great reviews online and is so popular at Best Buy that they are actually sold out! And it holds 8gb for about $80. They are expecting a new shipment of them in by Thursday.

It appears that it actually lets you create subfolders which is what I need from an mp3 player more than anything. If for some reason if it doesn't it turns out Best Buy actually lets you return electronics even after you open them. Had I purchased my Zen mp3 player from Best Buy instead of Amazon I could have returned it when I found out it can't do subfolders. Guess what Amazon, you just lost me as a customer forever. Hello Best Buy, I will be making ALL of my electronics purchases from you from now on.
