5. An attempt at a well-dressed situation.

On this particular day, I was hours away from the first shows of the SDW season. And, here we are days later and I believe myself to be some how still above water.

Actually no, I don't. Because like my favorite Anais Nin, I believe in the mermaid philosophy: "No fear of depths, great fear of shallow living." So above water would mean beached, and I'm more in the deep sea diving with a school of sparkly seahorse mode.

Come see what that actually looks like at tomorrow's closing shows at the Joy Theater, svp.

In the meantime, I'm also in the did she actually put that with that, and then that and also that mode.

Sure, a stripe on a plaid, with a side of leopard, a skull trimmed boot and a whistling parakeet necklace for good measure? Seems fully mermaid-meter sane to me.
