Some Modifications | Fragrance Posse

Posse.  Let’s discuss Some Modifications.  What’s it about human nature that causes us to be extra eager about damaging modifications than optimistic (or impartial)?  We (the ever-present ‘we’) like to find out about divorces/fights/arrests/dramadamaDramaLlamaMama Drama/and many others… however hardly ever (okay EVER) can we get a zzzing! from listening to about ‘X  went to the grocery retailer right now and purchased stuff for lunch’

Welp!  Immediately we’re going to just do that.  I’m going to take you on a recap of some latest journeys into the center of one of many extra boring elements of the Boring Winter Season :  Musette’s Musings on her native scene.

  1. My ROOF!  May it’s any extra boring?  Newp!  And I’m right here for it!  Nevertheless, that is really a bit extra emotional than only a regular re-roof.  That is the final piece of the Nice El O Debacle.  El O.  Sigh.  Such ability, completely destroyed by bloodymindedness.  That man, who might in all probability construct the Taj Mahal, put this absurd ‘addition’ atop his just about excellent first flooring addition. Whyyy? Even worse? he by no means closed it in.  A yr after, it was Fowl Rental and I used to be sad.  3 years later he left.  The ‘addition’ remained and have become the image for each Unhealthy Resolution I’ve ever made.   This late Autumn my beloved, cranky contractor tackled the elimination and rework of the roof – and it’s excellent. Native cheapskates say his work is ideal (it’s) however he’s ‘too costly’ (he’s not)  – ha!  You’ll pry this man out of my chilly, useless fingers; when he’s achieved it’s achieved to perfection.  And you would stroll out of your own home with $1000 on the eating room desk and once you returned it could nonetheless be there, together with a lecture concerning the foolishness of leaving $1000 on the eating room desk.  Chilly,useless fingers, individuals.  Chilly. Lifeless. Palms.  Don’t Check Me.
  2. As soon as accomplished I smudged the residing daylights out of the area and eventually really feel protected – and completely freed from El O’s miasma.  And my insurance coverage firm received’t come after me, blessed be.  Again Porch!  Lookin’ at you, subsequent!  Then?  Then Paris, whereas Missy March and I nonetheless have enamel!  However Again Porch, first.  It’s gonna blister, that bill, however omg.  My Again Porch!  Comfortable Musette!  Paris can wait a bit.
  3. magnificent


    Lordt.  El O.  sigh.

  4.   I stay on the Again of Past and it’s a bit grim – individuals store at Walmart (and elsewhere) in pajamas and slippers!!! or shorts and socks and slippers!!! (I child you not.  It’s terrifying to behold).  Deer Season is the Massive Furry Deal round right here – and most males are bearded as much as match, coated in camo and deer blood.  Girls, too, minus the beard (principally).    Individuals take a look at me, in my glam boots and lipstick, as if a TRex simply walked in from a black-tie occasion aboard a spaceship.  I used to be lonely.  And unhappy.  However now I’m not as a result of I’m Making Pals. Some actually faaaabulous girls stay round right here, blessed be!  Humorous, good, fascinating.  Completely different from me in loads/most methods – however fabulous!   Y’all know I really like me some males (some males) – however they’re for very particular conditions.  Girls?  Girls are a day by day present and the creating sorority right here is so very heartening.    And I’m discovering new (and fabulous) locations within the space that cater to ME!  TMI:  I’m an afficionado of The Wax – my ‘erm’  ladybits are curly, which suggests if I depil or (omg!) shave……yikes!  In Chicago/LA/and many others a Brazilian is simply Tuesday.  Right here?  um.  No.  I needed to go all the way down to Peoria, which isn’t that huge a deal however simply served to bolster my ‘otherness’. Not anymore.  This charming little spa simply opened up in Kewanee – Prudence Rose Botanical Spa – and it’s as if it was made Simply For Me.  One of many house owners has even created smudging sprays, for many who are not looking for the smoke (they’ve an Etsy store however these aren’t but on there).  Jenn is my fantastic new waxer and if you happen to don’t assume that’s a Massive Furry Deal, assume once more.  She’s elegant, charming – and excellent!  I feel I’m in love. We could do shade on my hair (head hair, you fiends.  HEAD HAIR)… however that’s for one more day.  They usually appear to love me, which is extra of a crapshoot than you may assume.  With the spaceship, the glam boots and the jaws I’m positively an Aquired Style.
  5. Newbie’s Thoughts.  A whole lot of it is a matter of my very own private progress, born of getting been right here awhile now, sans El O.  Understanding that this native mindset is approach totally different from my city one, the place individuals are often Not From the place they at the moment are.  Work relationships are totally different, as properly – these friendships that develop since you’re collectively 12hrs/day.  These can occur – however round right here it’s nonetheless principally household as a result of once you go away work (even if you happen to work in Peoria) you come residence to 235 individuals with a declare in your time.  It’s simply…totally different. Individuals don’t have events the place they invite Not Household.  Once more…simply totally different.  However as I’m beginning to perceive it, I’m discovering workarounds. Anticipating individuals to recollect to incorporate you is heartbreak .  Fortunately I’m a TRex and have NO drawback respectfully inviting myself.  Nevertheless… it’s nonetheless….totally different.
  6. I can do that.  Altering my mindset, embracing what I’ve beforehand disregarded, discovering enjoyment of quotidian experiences …who’dathunkit!!??
  7. AND!  I’m portray once more!  AND! (BIG ‘AND!!!‘)  I’ve acquired 3 fashions for my ongoing sequence, entitled ‘The Graces’.  Squeeeee!  MODELS!  From HERE!  Ooooh, yay!  Attractive girls, every of whom have varied compelling qualities that intrigue me.  And they’re DOWN with this!  YESH!
  8. Who’daf#ckin’thunkit!!!
  9. Final Factor:  Apparently Floyd sez ‘This Is Good’ as a result of he rewarded my travails with:  DRAG BINGO!!!  Now.  You’re in all probability considering ‘yeah? annnnd?’ however keep in mind: that is an excellent smaller model of the city in ‘Priscilla’ the place they offer that magnificent efficiency…. solely to be met with mute incomprehension (with a facet of mute horror).  Nevertheless!  For some purpose many of the people of this 1400 particular person city within the midst of Purple Nation have determined that Devil is NOT carrying false eyelashes and a sequined robe!  As with the primary Drag Present this was held within the outdated gymnasium and it was a hoot!!!  Alas, I didn’t win Bingo.  Nor did I win any of the Silent Auctions.  I did, nevertheless, get thrown by one drunk farmer (actually – I used to be THROWN!!!) into the arms of one other, greater, (MUCH) youthful, just-as-drunk farmer… who, thank Floyd, caught me.  Any of you who’ve met me know I’m not a teeny gal – 5’8″ tall, measurement 8.  Not teeny.  However if you happen to’ve spent your life baling hay and hefting calves I suppose it’s simply Tuesday so that you can decide up and THROW! a full-grown human feminine.  He wished me to scent the youthful farmer (he smells so gooood!)  I did scent him.  He did scent good.  Or maybe that was the scent of my intense gratitude at him catching me.  No matter!  Small value to pay for an amazing, enjoyable night time with a bunch of bingophiles and drag queens.  
  10. In order that’s it for me.  And right here’s my query:  have any of you ever been picked up and THROWN! in your grownup life, simply on a whim?  And right here’s my OTHER query: what’s occurring together with your lives??  And really final query (I promise):  is it Spring but?

bye, for now.  xoxoxo
