National Grouch Day!


dievca’s favorite Muppet is the headliner for today!

And don’t lie to yourself — EVERYONE is a grouch at some point….embrace it.

Celebrated since 1976, according to Sesame Street Magazine, October 15th is National Grouch Day — a day for all Grouches to celebrate their way of life.

dievca was looking for a little Grouch Couture for inspiration and came up with these photos:

But then realized that if she was really going to be true to her Mentor, Moschino was the way to go!
(Who doesn’t NEED a garbage can crossbody bag?)

PS. dievca is meeting Master for coffee, we will see if He is grouchy~

HAVE AN EXCELLENT GROUCHY MOMENT!


“I need to be Charming~”

said the Master to His dievca.
Immediately, a number of visuals flashed into her head:

So…..What does charming mean?

Hmmm, seems a bit sketchy.

dievca sent this back:

Master,

Not that you need to~
But it never hurts to read up before a Gig.
 
 
Knock ’em dead.

The funny thing is….Master is naturally charming, but dievca just couldn’t resist. she might pay for this~

Didn’t look so good…

At 12:00 Noon.
It was coming down pretty heavy.

Parade started at 1:00 pm – rain or shine.
Apparently Mermaids don’t melt.
At 4:00 pm?
Gorgeous…


When you can’t get it to stay turned off…

A little too much water in the shower caused a problem.
The damn thing kept turning back on.
There isn’t a removable battery.
And, No, the glue isn’t there to close anything for periods.


Oh, now, this made dievca’s day…couple’s fashion

dievca ran into an offering on DangerousMinds.net (via Flashbak) about the horror of knit polyester His & Her Fashion.

she was entranced.
Do you think Master would go for it?

In  her search for “Matchy/Matchy” Fashion — dievca offers some of the original photos and opens it up to other decades of sweetness, tackiness, and fabrics. XO

Enjoy!
and let dievca know which outfit is your favorite…dievca digs the sharks.


Depending upon an 8+ lbs rodent for advice….Happy Groundhog Day!

There is one day a year when Americans turn to a small mammal to predict the weather, Groundhog Day. It’s the day we celebrate the American tradition of finding out if there will be six more weeks of winter

Thousands will converge on the small Pennsylvania town of Punxsutawney to see if Punxsutawney Phil will emerge from his temporary burrow and see his shadow. If that happens, winter weather will continue across the United States. But if Phil doesn’t see his shadow, spring temperatures are on the way.

Groundhog Day is derived from ancient Christian and Roman customs in Germany, where Europeans celebrated Candlemas, a holiday marking the Virgin Mary’s presentation of Jesus at the Temple in Jerusalem 40 days after his birth. Candlemas is observed on Feb. 2nd. If there were clear skis on that usually meant an extended winter. German immigrants brought the rituals to the U.S.

Punxsutawney Phil was named an official immortal oracle in 1887 by a group of groundhog hunters from Punxsutawney. Rivals such as Staten Island Chuck and Gen. Beauregard Lee have tried to undermine his fame, but Phil has maintained his cultural significance.

For those who refuse to believe in the fantasy of Phil’s immortality are right. Groundhogs in captivity typically live no longer than 10 years. And the U.S. National Climatic Data Center has found that Phil is only correct about 40% of the time.

Ah, well, it inspired a great movie!

Phil Connors: (to the groundhog) “Don’t drive angry! Don’t drive angry!”

Phil Connors: When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn’t imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter.
