'Cabin fever', 'really had enough', 'snow is boring'… are all sighs I've been reading in quite a few English blogs lately. I so do agree! Though normally a happily unsocial and self-entertaining person, not having been able to leave the house for a week now has established the expressions 'boredom' and slight 'grumpiness' in my personal dictionary. (And also serves as a reminder to be careful what to wish for – After Christmas the idea of being snowed in seemed highly romantic. The reality has turned out to be rather monotonous.)
I'm also declining into a frightening state of barbarism… I don't consider myself a HMG*, but with a tooth crown missing and a cancelled waxing appointment I am starting to feel rather 'unpolished'. Yesterday my desperation for some consoling prettiness was so big that I marched half a mile through the snow to meet the UPS delivery guy (who naturally declined to deliver my Wolford order to our house). Imagine my delight when I schlepped the parcel with hosiery and lingerie home – like a lioness dragging a poor zebra…
All this ennui has allowed my to play around with Poladroid. I had to fiddle a bit to install it (but that’s probably just technologically challenged me…). Now that it’s on my desktop I'm finding it quite a cute gadget – doing the proper polaroid camera noise and taking 2 minutes to develop. Have you had any experiences? What do you think?
