monette (made by coell)

random thoughts (so titled rather than making multiple posts)

I'm buying my first suit tomorrow. Yeah, I know it's pathetic that I'm 31 and have never bought a suit. I've put it off for years, hoping that I'd wake up thin one day and would actually look forward to clothes shopping. Hopefully, it won't be too hellish. I'm thinking a charcoal pin stripe, classic, elegant. Can I wear a brown belt and shoes with a charcoal suit?

According to an email this morning, today is the fourteenth anniversary of Paul Monette's death. I have changed so much in 14 years, much of it due to Paul Monette's writing. Thank you, Paul, for your beauty and your anger. The userpic is my Monette, named for you.
