Nearly But Not Quite

12 10 2010

Yesterday I was feeling great, I was even productive, not a bad effort for having just flown from Australia back to Seattle via Los Angelese.

Then the jetlag kicked in, and left me sitting wide awake until 4am in the morning. Ugh!

I finally managed a whole three hours sleep before starting the day. A day which wasn’t quite as productive as the previous one. However I did manage to get some prepwork done for the upcoming Red Dress Ball.

I am now the proud first time owner of some magnificent gems and sparkly baubles to adorn myself with, and accessorise the dress that arrived today. A dress that arrived in such a small packet that I was left forlornly staring at it thinking “surely such a small packet can’t contain a dress”.

And, yet it did, it’s a little wrinkled but perfect for the event.
An event, which if I haven’t mentioned before, or you’ve missed the mention, is for charity, being held in Seattle and requires all attendees, male and female alike to wear a red dress. Hence it’s name, The Red Dress Ball.

I have a new found respect for women everywhere. The amount of time and effort that goes into preparing for these events is insane. Whereas I would normally just put on pants, shirt, and the most laborious chore would be selecting a tie and cufflinks, I’m now trying to piece together an entire ensemble from underthings, shoes, accessories, hair, etc. etc.

A very educational process, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say hilarious, and somewhat enjoyable. Don’t panic though, I have no intention of this becoming a new lifestyle. This is for charity, and if I’m going to dress as a woman for the first time, well GOD DAMN I want to be a pretty one, or at least have enough flash and sparkle to detract from my fat man head! 😉

Hooroo for now, I really do need some sleep!
