Fresh semester, fresh duct tape

I can see that they're making efforts to freshen up the campus for the start of classes Monday, and that includes the libraries. I noticed that on my floor the old brown duct tape covering gaps in the carpet has been replaced with brand new silver duct tape. It matches better and everything. How forward thinking of them.

I have dance tonight, and we're talking about getting new group costumes. Everybody can pick whatever style she wants, but all will be gold with an accent color of your choice. Ooh la la. I've been parsing through belly dance costume pictures all day. My sister and I eliminated a whole slew of them based on:

(1) Ability to discern intended beading design. Is that a firework or a crustacean? Best not to find out.

(2) Cut-outs in inappropriate places. If I have to ask myself whether or not I could wear an undergarment underneath it without it being seen, we're not going there.

(3) Appropriateness for those of us in the population who are, shall we say, small chested. If one was not blessed with large breasts, tops with large spaces between the cups will look... not so good.

There's a certain style I tend to favor (I like ruched hip wraps, side slits that aren't too high, and a drapey thing that hangs in the slit, it looks very pretty) and I have it narrowed down to 3 or 4. I'll agonize over it for another week or two I'm certain.

I hope everybody has a nice weekend. I, on the other hand, have a defensive driving course to attend tomorrow with Mike for like 6 hours or something horrible like that. We want to lower our car insurance, and you can do so by attending this course once every 3 years. It's absolutely painful. Do you think the instructor would be insulted if I brought my knitting? Probably. *glares* At least Mike and I will be able to go out for a nice lunch during the process.
