Randomosity Suited and Booted

New-to-me Meme

The sun shone pink on white walls.
And the trees stood so tall.
Defiant, proud and loud against the sky.

Kicking and screaming, that was how I got Skell to do this one. Seriously. I looked at him and said, “Well, what do you NEVER blog, sunshine?”

“Um,” was the coherent reply. So, I shoved a group notice at him. He read it, went pale, his bottom lip started to jut out stubbornly, and I just gave him A Look. “It’s that or dropcrotch pants,” I said, and he capitulated so fast ;-)

One HUGE heaved sigh later, a lot of grumbling and, “I’ll never live this down,”-type muttering, et voila.

Colour! Not only that, but PASTELS! I think I’m gonna faint. (Skell says he’s already passed out. From SHAME. Oh shut up, you bloody little drama queen.)

Not only pastel pink, but Mr Normal. I swear, you can almost see him squirming. The shirt/waistcoat combo is the March group gift from SF Design (honestly, I couldn’t get him to actually spend his money on something pastel pink) and the pants and shoes are – at least – ones he already had and has worn before, so he can’t complain there.

I had to fight him about the makeup. Nope, not even a smidge of eyeliner, pal. Bare-faced, if you don’t mind. And, just to rub it in, we’ll turn you blond. *evil grin*

This is about the sum of the eyeroll that I got:

Poor boy. *snicker*

In all seriousness, today was the first day IRL that I noticed the cherry trees blossoming on my journey home from work. It’s sakura season (the first gorgeous and hopeful sign of spring), so that kind of inspired the whole look.

  1. Awwww … he looks so sweeeeet * ducks and runs for cover * ;-) Poor Skell – between this and the noob photo tragedy on Flickr he may never recover.

  2. You look adorable in pink! (Are you gonna kill me for saying that? LOL)
    Also, I would have died laughing at the dropcrotch pants…missed opportunity. hahahahaha

    1. *ties down the avatar before he gets the chance to read that*

      And I figure I’d humiliated the poor sod enough, what with this and the n00b disaster of a few days ago. Dropcrotch pants would be a step too far.
