Productivity  
There was a huge Heroes marathon on Scifi today. I think Matt got hooked. He wasn't able to get to sleep today, so he stayed up and watched some of that. Unfortunately, he came in at the middle of the series, so he didn't really know what was going on XD He seems interested in it, though, which is cool. Marathons like this are really great for getting things done. I've sewn so many costumes during CSI marathons it's not even funny. And since CSI is almost always playing all the time on Spike, it's usually what I end up putting on when I end up sewing. (I have most of CSI on DVD which makes Spike kinda obsolete, but whatever XD)

Today, though, productivity =/= sewing.
Celine was supposed to visit this weekend to hang out and be retarded with me, but she had a plumbing catastrophe in her apartment complex, and couldn't make it. I'm not sure if we're still on for scarby tomorrow or not, and I forgot to call earlier today and find out :X Whoops!
I've totally used this as an excuse to slack, though. I should finish my blouse tonight and take that skirt in.. and maybe finish the second skirt, just in case we end up going tomorrow. Otherwise I won't have anything interesting to wear. But I'm feeling soooo lazy.
I cleaned floors and did dishes and laundry and cooked this great chicken& rice stuff for dinner, and cleaned out Mr. Retard's aquarium today, so I felt pretty busy. Unfortunately, none of that involved sewing. And I really need to get this outfit out of the way so I can get back to lolita crap. I have a bag of approx. 1 bajillion disembodied cat ears I made the other day and haven't done anything with.

Ugh.. speaking of XP
Senpu has fleas. Again. I caught him scratching a lot, and found some on him. They drop out of the sky and come for him, I swear. I don't know how he gets them since he never goes outside. We must bring them in by accident or somthing. I need to go to the vet and get another battery of Frontline to put on him. I saw one a few weeks ago and picked it off him& drown it. I'd been meaning to go out to the vet ever since, but I keep forgetting. I need to go this week no matter what, before they get any worse. I combed a few more off of him today since he'd been scratching so much. But I can't leave him flea-infested. It will drive me nuts. He always grows mystery fleas every summer. I should just buy it every year instead of waiting to see some in the summer, and then using the junk on him, but for some reason it's always a shock when he gets them. WTF cat?

Edit: Blouse done. zomgz.
As of yesterday, all I had to do was finish the elastic& hems around the neck. Today I finished all of that....

And then...

I decided I didnt' like how it was looking, and ripped all the seams out -..-
I re-sewed both cuffs& the neckline differently and liked the end result much better. It may not be authentic, or nearly as cool as the other stuff those vendors make, but it'll do just fine. I tried on the black skirt, the white shirt, and the corset, and it looks fine too. I think I was freaking out for nothing. I will, however, have to finish the second skirt, since it just looks awesome with that. I think it also helps cover how strangely the skirt bunches up after I put the corset over it. Or somthing. It would probably help if I shortened that waistband so it fit tighter around the waist and wasn't Mr. Mcdroopypants all over the place, but it's 4AM and I think I've done enough damage for now.
