happy sad

I was really excited to get a big blue package from swap queen extraordinaire ANJALI. Seriously, she should go into business as a professional swapper, because she has a sixth sense about what swap recipients want. It’s a little spooky. So anyway, of course Anjali sent some candy:

Some black sesame-flavored Pocky and yogurt- and pineapple-flavored chews. Yum.
I also requested another pink lip balm. Apparently there are two types of this lip balm–one that is a light pink and one that is a deeper pink. Anjali sent me the light pink one last time, so I was curious about the deeper pink one. It is incredible! I am totally sold on the deep pink one. She also sent another lip balm that is “shiny pink-beige” (the one on the right):
Super cute little hedgehog paper bag, huh? I am so going to scan that puppy!
But the piece de resistance? This swap was about T-shirts, my friends, and not just any old T-shirts! Japanese T-shirts!
Aren’t they fantabulous? The one with the airplanes says, “The sky goes on forever.” Yes it does! Anyway, now I come to the meaning of this post’s title. I want to wear the heck out of these T-shirts, but today was the last 80 degree day in Portland, maybe until next summer! I was even too cold to wear one today. Tomorrow the clouds and rain move in, and I can’t go around thrusting my T-shirt designs into people’s faces! But yes, I can layer. Maybe I should go look for some of those “layering tees” or “tissue tees” or whatever those things are called?

    I got your package today! But I’ll write you a separate email about that.
    I really like this shirt for layering. Kind of expensive, but worth it.
    And you should know that I bought those hedgehog bags fully intending to hoard them all for myself, but I decided, “You know what? Mariko deserves a hedgehog bag.” And you totally do.

    You can also wear your cute tees under a zippy hoody and let the cute design peek out, so long as you don’t zip it all the way.
