Tie-Dyed And Mortified

Mary in LA!

The lovely Petra sent me these amazing pink and black tie-dye tights from her Pebelle line. Since interviewing Petra last year, we’ve kept in touch and she’s even started a blog for Pebelle! Take a look at it here. I love these tights! They take my tiger dress to a whole new level. I wore this ‘lil number when I met up with my sister from another mister, Mary Van Note, while she was in town last month performing some shows.

I can’t wait for Mary and Ben to come back to LA!! Serenading you guys Janet Jackson-style right now.

Mary in LA!

One of the shows that Mary performed at while in LA was called Mortified, where people read embarrassing excerpts from their old diaries.  At the one we went to, one of the dudes read letters that he wrote to none other than Mr. Belvedere! The kid who played Wesley was also a special guest! My bro and I were huge fans of Mr. Bellybutton so that was a REAL TREAT. That above is Mary’s diary, which she read from after unlocking with a special key. Naturally the whole thing got me thinking about the old Dear Diary feature I had on here when I first started this blog. I have been meaning to start that up again, although my junior high-era Pochacco diary might be too embarrassing to share on here since it’s all about how boy crazy I was. With my luck, I would post an excerpt from it which is basically a logbook of obsessively-detailed crushes and the one boy who kicked my legs under my desk because “they were hairier than his” will most likely find it and send me a penus pic or something. WHICH, btw, is suuuch a 2007 move, Anthony Weiner (YOU AMATEUR)

It also got me thinking about one of my favorite games I like to play called “What Were Marie and Emi Doing At This Age?” where we basically compare the vast differences in our childhoods (i.e., me being raised Catholic versus she being raised atheist; me catching butterflies and playing Skip-It while she was hobknobbin’ with CHRISTIAN SLATER and chasing DURAN DURAN AROUND TOWN! TWEEN JEALOUSY STILL EXISTS FU EMI). This game also includes the comparison of our Sanrio diaries. When we first read some of the entries side by side, we were dead on the floor because it’s like “Yep, we are still pretty much the same as we were back then.”

My diary is the blue Hello Kitty one. (GOODY TWO SHOEZ) and hers is the Keroppi one below it.

I want JUSTICE!!

You’re rocking those tights!

Haha that heart hat is pretty cute, does it have chocolate inside?

Also, the glimpse of your guy’s childhood diary is cute. I too was raised Catholic and the shit I wrote in my diary consisted of getting in trouble by my parents, crushes that didn’t like me back, and talking shit on my friends. Gotta love being a girl.

something I sorta regret doing now is that I destroyed all my diaries from age 13-19 a couple years ago, the humiliation being my motivating factor.
that hat is so cute with her outfit

omg emi’s diary is FRIKKING HILARIOUS. i almost peed my pants when i read…. ok now i realize it says “why you say!!!” instead of what i read, “WHAT YOU SAY!!!” which would be just hilarious coming from a little twerp. but its still funny… the “i hate them both,” ominiously unpunctuated at the bottom is killer.

LOL “Hope it turns out ok. I hate them both [[cute froggy face]]”

Oh my GOODNESS. Love the diary excerpts – how ace that you were able to get out of staying back at school! Good work little Marie.
