I got in at 2 AM from the Juggalo Prom, washed up, and went to bed at 3 AM. I was up at 8 AM and even though I took off from the library today and rested, I’m still feeling pooped. I will post about the Juggalo Prom at some point this week.
However, I have to give some gratitude for yesterday. My full-time job had the pumpkin contest yesterday and one of the departments did a Suicide Squad theme. I loved the guy who dressed as the Joker and afterwards, I asked him if he had extra paint because I wanted to borrow some for the Juggalo Prom. Wouldn’t you know that he gave me the pink UV paint for my mouth? I was uber grateful and my face paint looked great. Here’s a selfie with him, before I did my face.
I can’t eat at Hungry Pigeon anymore. While I’ve had diarrhea after eating there in the past, I never got violently sick. Last night I was glutened and I vomited. First time vomiting with accidental gluten contamination. I puked in the Lyft going to the Juggalo Prom (and thank god the Lyft driver didn’t charge me extra, some do) and he helped me clean up a little. I had to clean my dress when I got to the Voltage Lounge and I puked again, over the toilet that time.
Anyway, I managed to clean myself, but I was feeling self-conscious that I smelled like puke. I met a nice young lady last night, I told her the embarrassing story (I told a few others too… when I’m anxious and self-conscious, I tend to talk a lot about the embarrassment) and I asked her if I smelled.
She told me, “no! You smell fine and even if you did smell a little bit, shit happens. I once puked at a dance on myself and my date’s shoes. It happens. However, here’s some perfume!” She sprayed me and we ended up laughing about it all and I said, “you’re right, shit does happen. I feel better!” We also ended up hanging out for a bit and enjoyed the prom. I was thankful for Lily.
Here are some teaser photos. Before the prom, I wanted to get a few pre-prom pictures. I never went to my high school proms, didn’t have an interest, but I remember seeing everyone’s pre-prom photos. I wanted mine and people were happy to take them. Everyone I passed in Philadelphia also loved my make up! I got a lot of compliments, which made me glow. 🙂
I felt pretty grateful and joyful yesterday. I can’t wait to post about the Juggalo Prom!
