Nite Owl

I used to be a real morning bird. It comes from having to wake up early to catch the bus to school for twelve years, and even during my college and grad school days I still managed to get up fairly early. Lately though, I’ve been staying up later and later, because it’s the only time I can write – I can’t seem to concentrate during the day. I don’t like it, because I feel so lazy getting up late in the morning, plus I have to eat breakfast by myself. But at least it’s paying off; I’m steadily hitting 1000 words a day, and getting closer to the finishing line. The story still reads like a Vietnamese remake of American Gods, but I’ve decided not to worry about that right now.

And yes, that’s a Watchmen reference in the post title. Back in LA my friends and I have once discussed dressing up as gender-swapped Watchmen for Halloween, and I picked Nite Owl – Nite Owl II, to be exact. I would’ve liked to be Rorschach – he’s more me, and that costume would’ve been a lot simpler. Alas, he was already taken.

… Come to think of it, my story is a bit like Watchmen too.

Double Dot

This is my second venture into the printed pants trend – polka dot pants! I made this pair myself by stamping the dots in fabric paint with an eraser at the end of a pencil (like so.) I had too much free time on my hands, apparently. In hind sight, I wish I had used daubers instead of the eraser, to make the dots bigger, but I’m happy with the result.

I tried on a bunch of different accessories too, but in the end took them all off because I felt the outfit was busy enough.
