I am so sad, it’s the first time I have to cancel airline tickets. My partner is down with flu and we just had to cancel and stay home. My dream to see the Big Ben will not come true for a while, that means.
This is the first time that I have to cancel already booked airline tickets and hotel reservations. Somehow I thought that buying cancellation insurance would mean that cancelling a flight would be as easy as returning a lamp to Ikea… I was wrong!
Turns out, I still have to pay the penalties and then appeal them through the insurance company. That’s just another heap of paperwork that I am so not looking forward to.
It hasn’t been even 24 hours yet since the most recent newsletter, but I already have 25 messages in my inbox wanting to know the reasons for why I am most likely going to sell Fantasy Stockings business.
I told you, if more than 10 people ask, I’ll do a separate newsletter with some explanations. It will take me a few days to draft it up, there is no simple single answer.
I’ll try to be as sincere as possible about it. My goals and circumstances in my 20’s were not the same as they are in my 30’s, thus I need to re-evaluate some decisions I’ve made earlier.
If you are not on my newsletter list yet, please sign up HERE.
One of my followers on social media passed this on. How lovely! Thanks, Vince! Since I prefer regular pantyhose, I’ll try to enjoy flowers as gifts rather than chocolate.
“If it weren’t for chocolate, there would be no need for control-top pantyhose. An entire garment industry would be devastated.”
Lately I had many inquiries about fishnet socks, especially short ankle ones. There seems to be a trend on the runway to wear anything fishnet, like tops and tights.
Here is one of my photos from Instagram, taken recently, of my legs in fancy fishnet tights. It’s not a new pair, but all the sudden I feel more fashionable about wearing it.
Are you on Instagram? Please follow me! I am trying to grow my network. Let’s just say I am still very new to it. Below you can see a screen shot of what I posted so far.
I realize this is kind of outdated… but still on Netflix!
I’ve been watching a few episodes of the “Orange is the New Black” TV series on Netflix and there are many references to pantyhose, even though barely any is seen. There is a Russian matriarch nicknamed “Red” smuggling pantyhose in.
At some point “Red” even says after she loses her access to smuggling – ‘My friendship used to come with perks. Now I’m just an angry old Russian lady. Without the free pantyhose and eyeliner I’m not such a draw.’
I’m wondering, what would pantyhose be used for there? They have uniforms and they can’t wear something else besides that. My only reasonable guess is that with all the lesbian lovers in prison perhaps pantyhose is one of their accessories for romantic games. I see that on some online forums some people have dirtier minds and guess at it being used as a sieve for substances.
There is an interview online from Allure website with one of the actresses, Natasha Lyonne, from the show. She says that she is hooked on Wolford tights and wears them all the time! But that’s of course in her real life, not in the movie.
Perhaps it may seem as if the movie is supposed to happen some time in the 1990s when pantyhose were a big deal, but actually no, it’s very modern. There a constant references to new books like the 4 Hour Work Week (came out in 2007), for example. So hey, there is still something hot about pantyhose!
Do you believe it that if you think of something negative happening to you, it will? I had a real manifestation experience in Ikea a few years ago when I went to buy a cloudberry jam.
In my life I got to see exactly one cloud berry, a single little berry in the middle of a northern forest. You can imagine, I was excited about the jam.
As I walked up to the cash register, I asked the lady there if this jam contains any mosquitoes. She looked at me as if I am out of my mind and told me that there are no mosquitoes.
Guess what, half way through the yummy jar, there it was – a big fat mosquito!
I took the jar back to Ikea and to the return area and told the lady that I specifically asked if there were mosquitoes and I’ve been told that there are none there.
To my surprise the customer service woman was completely not interested why there is a mosquito in the jar, but she was very much keep on how I knew in advance to ask about mosquitoes specifically.
Well, I got my $5 back. I don’t ask them about mosquitoes anymore and I continue buying that cloudberry jam, but so far they don’t have any unusual ingredients to them.
So my readers, please tell me, have I manifested a mosquito?
