2Goth4U

I’m still not sure if the decision to go into work today was a good one. It has allowed me to clear a few things off my desk (one of them time-sensitive, so that’s a plus) but on the whole I just feel like putting my head down and closing my eyes. I keep coughing, having my eyes water, and end up rubbing them so they’re sore and inflamed now. Plus, I’m wearing my battered green overalls and a definitely not-work approved shirt (It’s mostly hidden under the overalls) so I basically look like a refugee from one of those impoverished Balkan states. All I need is bad teeth and a cigarette. And some kind of Bowery Boy hat.

And I just realized that I forgot to bring the book I was supposed to mail for my very first Swappington’s swap. I only get one lousy point off the book, but it’s a beginning. Nobody has shown interest in anything else I’ve put up, but I have a few things to add and I’m also pondering putting up some postcards. God knows I have scads of them.

Haven’t heard back from the British Museum regarding the engraving I want to have a photo of for my thesis. I have to dig around and try and find some sources talking about engravings and the fact that they’re cheaper and more accessible to the public at large, and were dispersed more widely. But for those of you who are curious, here’s an image of it:

Parked in front of the office today was a car with a license plate holder that had spikes all around it – the same spikes that they put on leather dog collars for big pitbulls named “Brutus” (or on little mini pins named “Killer,” for that matter). The license plate read “2Goth4U.” Now. Is it just me, or is proclaiming your Goth-ness on your license plate not a particularly Goth thing to do? What makes it all even better is that the car? Was a Jetta. Sorry, dumpling, try again.
