The following are three things Karma can send my way to make up for finding a 2.5 inch one of these:
in my bathtub this morning. For those of you who don't know what that is, that is an aggressive house spider and they are evil. And big. Needless to say, I shut the door on the tub, shaved my legs in the sink, and put my hair up rather than shower. (Many thanks to my brother Mime for killing it!) Karma also owes me for keeping me in the county courthouse for hours on end today waiting for people to decide whether or not something could be recorded. So I suggest it deliver the following three things to my doorstep. Sooner, rather than later.
This beautiful suit was brought to my attention by one of the lovely emails I periodically get from Banana Republic. I must own this suit. I love the retro feel, the pencil skirt that is such a wonderful mix of prim and sensual. I love the color. I love the cut. I love the fact that it could work in every season. I love that I already have lots of accessories that would go with it. I love that I would look smashing in it, because I would need something stellar to wear when karma sends the next thing to my front door.
I would like to introduce my newest Fantasy Boyfriend: Richard Armitage. I just finished watching North & South (the adaptation of the Elizabeth Gaskell novel, not the Patrick Swayze/Civil War one) and this man made the whole thing worthwhile. He stole every scene he was in and it was worth staying up until all hours last night for the last five minutes alone. And if you think this picture is good, wait until you see him sans cravat. He is now in the British TV series about Robin Hood (see Miss Nemesis' entry for a lovely pic) in which I hear he wears eyeliner. And you all know how I feel about that. Also, he will be appearing in one of the PBS Mystery! airings of the Miss Marple series on August 19th. Mark your calendars!
Since Karma cannot afford NOT to deliver the lovely suit and the Fantasy Boyfriend from Britain, it will obviously need to send a ticket to London, as that is where the said FBfB's livelihod is and it makes no sense for him to relocate to a rural town in Eastern Washington. So of course I will be checking daily for an open-ended ticket from Sea-Tac to Heathrow. Luckily I don't have to renew my passport for two more years. Maybe by then the backlog will be gone. Or by then I will be a bi-citizen, the FBfB having become a FHfB. You are all invited to come visit.
