NeonSeraphim (2:46:09 AM): oh, you know what I meant to tell you? I thought that Ren Fair costume looked good on you
That's from a convo a few nights ago. Yes, I save AIM conversations. So if you've ever said anything incriminating in a chat with me, odds are it's on disk. >:]= nyahahha.
But seriously... I'm not used to compliments on my appearance. And when it comes from someone like Michael, it means something. I believe I mentioned this a while back when KK complimented me - he and Michael aren't too liberal with compliments, making any sort of praise from them all the more special. I'm not sure if they realize that or not, but what they say has a pretty big impact on me. I like a lot of people, but there are a select few whose opinions I trust and respect. They are on that list.
I remember once a few years ago Alan randomly came up to me and asked, out of nowhere, if I'd lost weight. e.0 <-- I pretty much made that face, and said I wasn't sure. (I have never been very good at receiving compliments; it's probably better that I don't receive them a lot!). He shrugged and said it looked as if I had, complimented the dress I was wearing, and headed off to class (bell rang).
I, Jenni of the Negative Amounts of Self-Esteem, felt better about myself for a week.
What Michael said? I'm still smiling. And I'm wearing the shirt again. (because I like it. Really. Not because he does. Honest. *ahem* yeah. ^_^ he's not gonna see me, so what does it matter?)
*nods wisely* your words have power... choose them carefully. ^_^
On a Random Tangent, these pants are starting to annoy me. e.O they're men's jeans. Because guys' hips generally don't go outwards too much, the waist is the same size as the hips... which means that while these jeans fit around my hips, they're a couple inches too big around my waist. It feels odd. I had a design for altering a pair of jeans, maybe I can do it with this pair. My mom won't object, they were a few dollars at Value Village, so it's not like I'm destroying expensive clothing here even if I can't pull it off. ^_^; But if I can, oh how cool they will look...
Gabriel got army boots because he absolutely needed new shoes. *envy* I've been wanting to stop by the Army Surplus store and get me some for so long now, and he got them before me. Injustice! My mother agrees with me that I need some (have I mentioned how I love the fact that my mother not only tolerates my fashion sense - or lack thereof - but likes it on occasion? glee!)... so soon... mebbe for Christmas.
