a psychological study  
For the first time in my life admittedly spotty memory, I think I might go clothes shopping by myself! Without a second opinion!

The fact that I feel the desire to post to the internet for advice on whether or not to do this tells me I am actually still quite far from conquering codependency. ;)

My father wisely tells me to just WAIT a few weeks until I can grab a sister on her day off and haul her up there with me, but I finished my first sticker-sheet-of-reward-goodness and leyenn enabled me to trade that in for B5 season 2, and impatience is strong in me. Even though, after shopping, I might not have time to watch it before going to Providence tomorrow -- which is why *getting* it today was so important. Hmm.

***

In novel news, my old "School for Scandal" story is at the top of my list of potential plots. I stopped writing after the second chapter yeeears ago because of plot and pacing problems (that now I'd have the time to work out!) and, er, more because I got involved in a love triangle of my own and got teh evil mono of doom, but I still really love the characters and want to play with them more. pellucid, can I pick your brain about grad student things in Montreal? (Since this isn't NaNo, I don't feel like I'm cheating to use something that's already started, especially since I'll have to rewrite the whole thing anyway.)

Also... did people still want a creative deadline support community? I finally thought of something that's fifteen LJ-permitted letters long -- novelbynovember -- but since that's my project and both "novel" and "november" are negotiable for everyone else, that's probably a bad title. ;) If any of you still want to do it, suggest things please.

***

so, anyone want to be my phone buddy while I go shopping today?

A girl from work wants to go with me, so I don't think I will be making my random phone calls of squeee, ALAS! We can prank call people tomorrow, if necessary. ;)

This is true... but this mall is quite a trip from me, so I'd rather take someone along! But more shopping is not necessarily a bad thing... ;)

Except not, because a girl from work asked to go with me! Independence can wait.

*loves*

OMG, I am so coming back with trendy skintight girlie clothes with this girl, too. HEE. This is why I should shop by myself -- see what I would actually BUY without a second opinion!

What you need is a camera phone so you can take pictures of things and send them to all your friends for advice! Or not. *grin*

If you make the comm, spacefiend and I are in. We have a novel and a fic series, and both of them tend to get neglected when we're at school. A deadline -- and people to kick us into working -- would be helpful motivation to write! :D And I like the title, too, even if not everyone is doing the same thing. It's the idea behind it.
Little Red: gleee! - nenyamylittleredgirl on July 1st, 2005 05:01 pm (UTC)
AHAHA, I could so be one of those people in the commercials!

And wheee, people like the community title. I will have to start it. Yayyyy.

*bounces around with gleee*

Yay for you to at least be THINKING of going shopping alone! *goes with you in spirit and points to a green shirt, for I still believe that green looks really good on you* (like the color you dyed the ends of your hair) Also, *offers my phone up for you to prank call*

Anyway, I totally will be on your novel list! If only to encourage you!

Novel by November! Yay! And almost shopping by yourself (a feat I *still* have avoided accomplishing). Yay!

*general yays!*

I SO need that writing community, as I so have given up on everything and don't want to give up! It is so easy... *sigh*

Anyways, I suck at names, so...

Nope, I don't believe that. Asking for advice on the internet from friends isn't codependency. It's just asking for advice. :)

novelbynovember. I like it. It's got a nice rhythm and alliteration.

We don't mind sticking to your deadline, or even making our own deadlines.

This sounds like fun! When do we begin???

ps - is novelbynovember good codependency?

Wheeee! I have vast problems going shopping on my own - everything I buy looks SO GOOD in the store and in the mirrors in the changing rooms, but as soon as I get home and take out I'm like "Oh HELL NO!" and promptly have to return it because it's fugly. At least with other people, I can demand that they tell me if I'm considering buying something horrible before I actually pay for it. =)

(also, omg, I love stickers as reward thing! I do that for meself, also! mine are silver stars, wheee!)

museprod is still out there. I didn't get the name earlier because I was away, but I highly reccomend it. We're new, but I'm sure we'd all get behind you on this.
