While packing for BlogHer it occurred to me that my pajamas are beyond ratty. Knowing that I was rooming with Whitney and not jparks, who is very used to my scrubs that are so old they are basically transparent, prompted me to think "I should go buy some new pajamas." But I didn't actually go buy new pajamas, I simply dug out some yoga pants and a tee shirt and called it a day, because that's how much I respect Whitney, enough to cover my naughty bits around her, but not with the proper garments (on a side note, at one point over the weekend I did fall asleep naked but wrapped in a towel. So that thing about respecting Whitney? It just jumped out the window)
I honestly hate buying pajamas. And underwear. And right now I desperately need both. I know some people hate the shopping for underwear portion of the experience but I actually like that. I don't mind bra fittings, even really touchy feely ones. I don't mind that I'm one size in regular clothing and the next size bigger in pajamas and underwear. Nothing about the experience bothers me expect for paying for the items I need. I hate shelling out money for pajamas. I hate paying for bras. And I will spend a stupid amount of money of shoes, but then go cheap cheap cheap for underwear. (Although I draw the line at CostCo underwear. That's just wrong)
And the fact that bras can easily be the most expensive item of clothing I'm wearing on any given day just pisses me off. No one (except maybe jparks if I'm feeling giving) is going to see it, so why should I have to spend a crapload on them? I'm not trying to make a fashion statement with pajamas, I'm just trying to comfortably sleep in them, so why can't they be cheaper? GAW, this really pisses me off.
Maybe if I make a day our of the pajama and underwear shopping that'll ease the pain of spending the money. Who's up for a champagne brunch and an afternoon of shopping? Anyone? Bueller?
