So, yeah. I need to feel a little more like myself. So I'm gonna do the larger than life thing at the music in the park night tonight.

I have slapped new color on my hair (stripes of Blood Red, Pimping Purple, and Burgundy Wine). I have my ankle length silky straight skirt with the slits to above the knee. A fitted 't' in violet with two tone stripes. And my new Aunt Frances from Practical Magic black sun hat, finished off with black sandals.

I already have a small group who refer to me as the odd witchy herbal lady who lives up the hill. Time to be that "OMG, I could never pull that off!" woman.

Shock the young little thin girls who think that starvation rocks. Appall the dried up old biddies who think that anyone over 30 should fade quietly into the woodwork. Piss off the women my own age who are insecure and frustrated with how dull their lives have become. Wink at the businessmen who think I must be an uneducated trollop.

Tonight, by popular demand, the bitch is back.

John and I had a big ole conversation about this the other day, after a rash of comments from people (thankfully about themselves and not us) about how they're too old to do something that they did in their 20s, or that something is just not age appropriate. Pshaw, I say!

Also, I have to ask where you got your big floppy black hat. I really need a big hat for gardening, but I'd rather find one that fits my fashion sense a little.

I found it in the most unlikely of places. Brian and I were sitting and enjoying a coffee in the center court of the Partridge Creek mall just west of Lakeside. It's a very trendy mall and caters to the rich and anorexic. I stuck out sore thumbish. Across from me was a store called "Everything but the Water" which sold fashionable bathing suits. I happen to be watching one ridiculous mother push an SUV of a pram through this tiny store when my eye caught a wall of hats. One was black and wonderfully wide brimmed. I proudly marched into the store and gave credit to the clerk who did not do the 'raise eyebrow appraisal' and plucked the hat off the high shelf and pronounced it mine! They had one other style that was side brimmed in straw and black fabric. Mine is made of thin, coiled nylon strapping and is packable. I've been looking for a hat like this for years.

I'm having a lot of struggles lately with the girlfriend over this too. I'm trying to tell her that responsibility and maturity don't rule out fun, and "growing up" is something I did a long time ago, and don't need to rehash now. I'm plenty grown up, as grown up as I ever want to be -- I can choose what I want to do, and how I want to do it.

I'm not 20 anymore, and would never want to go back to that. But I'm not dead! I refuse to label anything as age-appropriate, I'll just stick to being sensible and being myself without any artificial restrictions on that.

I just felt a disturbance in the force, and for once, it made me smile instead of panic. =D
