My apartment building is under construction. Something about dry rot structural integrity class-action lawsuit blah blah blah...all I know is that they start banging on my walls at 7 in the morning, and since I tend to go to bed at around 4 in the morning (yes, I could leave you to assume it's because I'm out clubbing with my crew, but I'll fess up: More often than not I'm on the couch eating bite-sized peppermint patties and watching How It's Made), this is not a good time in my life.
If this construction were featured in a movie, I'd totally call it out for being unrealistic. It's comically bad. Like, the other day my brother and I were hanging out in my living room, and all of a sudden a hammer came through the wall. Sunlight poured through the hole and someone outside whimpered, "Ohhhhh....oops." A couple weeks ago one of the workers fell two stories to the pavement, and everyone ran outside expecting to see a mangled body, but instead the guy pops up off the ground, dusts himself off, and does a little jig to thunderous applause. It was like the Make 'Em Laugh sequence from Singin' in the Rain.
I think I would really enjoy these stories if they were happening to someone else, but there's a hole in my wall and constant bags under my eyes that are totally killing my buzz.
Now for a semi-awkward segue. A number of fabulous bloggers have bestowed a "You Make My Day" award upon Daddy Likey--thank you so much, daaahhlings! I thought it's as good a time as any to pass this honor along to a few of the blogs that manage to perk me up even when I'm trying to dodge hammers on three hours' sleep.
(Into) the Fray--Ambika is funny and stylish and genuine and she's from the Pacific Northwest, which ups her cool factor by, like, a thousand. Portland+Seattle=BFFL!
Fashion Binge--Awesome aesthetic, even better one-liners.
Kingdom of Style--Whenever I get stressed out about my life, I shriek, "Screw this! I'm going to Scotland to live with the Queens!" This gets me some weird looks on the bus, but oh well.
Painfully Hip--Two rad girls with rad taste makes for one rad blog.
Style Bubble and Style Bytes--I tend to group these two together, because they're right next to each other on my blogroll and they both fit in the category of "Europeans Who Are Way CoolerThan Me." But yeah, they both rock.
Fashion is Spinach--A fairly new find for me (I know, I know, where have I been?), it's quickly become a day-maker.
I could write about fifty more blogs, easy, but I've gotta be up in a few hours when the blinding sun streams through my decimated drywall. Damnit.
