Tomorrow is the big day and I’m so grateful that the Post Office was opened today! I received a really sweet card from Kathleen; it made me verklempt.
I decided to go to the King of Prussia Mall today to pick up some clothing items. Some clothing items I don’t like to buy online, especially when it comes to fitting. After I bought what I needed at Nordstrom’s, I decided to see what I could get for my birthday tomorrow. I went into a few shops, didn’t buy anything, until I went into the Rock Shop. I bought two ICP CDs, and a Nine Inch Nails CD. ICP’s Bizarre has a game board to it and I think I’m going to play it for my birthday tomorrow. I won’t take the dice apart, I’ll use my own. The game looks interesting.
The Rock Shop always has ICP albums and I buy one or two each time I go in there. I always enjoy how ICP and Twiztid includes interactive content in their older albums. Bizarre was released in 2000 and between 1994-2004, those were the golden ages of ICP and Twiztid albums. I like their new material, but I especially love their older material. I’m an older Juggalette, though.
Before I ordered Lyft, a kiosk cornered me and did my hair. The guy pressured me to buy the iron, kept taking $10 off and each time I stood my ground, “no.” He eventually took “no” as the answer and I left without spending $120 on something I didn’t need. I once bought the iron and it wasn’t for me. Irons can be damaging to the hair; I don’t even blow dry my hair, I let it dry naturally. The only time I have my hair blown dry or straightened is when I go to the salon, every once in a while. Back in 2014, I couldn’t say no and I think when I was selling things for Canada, someone bought the iron for $10 or maybe I donated it? I can’t remember, but I didn’t want it and I was proud of myself for saying, “no” and sticking to it.
Every year for my birthday, I donate a little something to a charity close to my heart: Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary. Tomorrow I will donate food and other needs they have posted on their Amazon wish list. I’m also going to donate a little something to another charity that became close to my heart last year: William Way Center. Since they provided me with therapy and a safe space for me to be my asexual self, I can use their counseling services in October again, and provide me with community, I want to donate $15 to them.
I was going to share a Pride play list the other night, but didn’t get a chance. Since I can’t keep calm that it’s almost my birthday, I will end this entry with high energy Pride anthems. Enjoy!
