I: have Instagram

Since I've chosen to live on the dark and mystique side of life, I also tend to be a bit of a reactionary.
Just so you'll understand to what extent here's an example:
I didn't get a mobile phone until October 2011.
And I only got it because I was on my way to London and needed to be able to blog from abroad!

Still to this day only about 10 people knows my phone number due to the simply fact I don't want to be reached all the time, and I kind of don't even know my own signal if it rings.
I find it very rare to be a life or death situation where people need to get hold of me in an instant. 
In fact, that's never happened to this day.

When I grew up in the 80's we had two stationary phones in my house. If one left one's home one made arrangements on when or where to be found/picked up. Easy as that.
When I left my house I was free. Out of control. Nowhere to be found.
That's why I often "forget" my phone at home, sound off or have it in another room nowadays.

Just how ungrateful can one be?

And oh, this is the worst; my husband even bought me a phone in 2009 as a surprise.
Am I the thankful kind? Heh...no.
I got so mad at him, said "-Did I say I wanted a phone? I've never asked for one, I don't want it!", and so I forced him to sell it back...

Though this sounds awful, you'll have to agree I'm no material girl!

Well, to the point. 
Since I'm such a reaktionary I didn't get Instagram until August 2013.
AND I only got it because I was forced to since many approached me about "my" Instagram.
Saying I answered questions like it was me, but strange, misspelled and using unusual language for being me.
It wasn't me.
So I had to get me an Instagram to stop this confusion.
MY Instagram is Adora_BatBrat, nothing else!

Todays make up was not ment to be seen

I figured I'd just be home sewing today, and lazy as I was I kind of scaled down the make up.
Always a mistake!

Soon I got a phonecall from the museum where my clothes been on exhibit asking me if I could come and help with the "demolition"? And so I jumped into my car and got it. I've missed my clothes!

I can admit here I felt a bit embarrassed letting people seeing me like this...

Worst part was probably the lipstick. It's the kids lipstick, and I've been dying to try it out, and since no one was supposed to see me today I figured it was a good day for a tryout.
I was clearly wrong.

The other picture is of me from Saturday, a look much more familiar and comfortable.

This was a weird day!
