mensa invitational

wearing AA t-shirt, thrifted button-down, thrifted Wrangler shorts, thrifted necklace, Zara boots

Today's outfit stars the thrifted cutoffs I got last weekend. Unfortunately, it's too chilly to rock them bare-legged, so I added black tights and a pair of boots. I guess you could call it summer dressing, San Francisco-style.

Currently watching: Brooke Knows Best. Don't ask. I'm not sure why I hate my eyes and want them to suffer either.

And here's a random outfit post from the weekend when I went to see a show. It was freezing. I'm glad I had the fur.

wearing DIY Topshop bleached jeans, Gap t-shirt, DIY crystal necklace, vintage cardigan and fur stole, Converse sneakers, vintage clutch

Oh, and I just wanted to share these hilarious 2009 winners from the Washington Post's Mensa Invitational. Every year, the Post asks readers to take a word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing a letter, and supplying a new definition. Here are my favorites:

Ignoranus: a person who is both stupid, and an asshole

Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it.

Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease.

Bozone: The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little signs of breaking down in the near future.

Try using them in a sentence today!
