11:37 am - The Universe Speaks, Post #33
Let's not talk about the disaster that happened in the UK last week, and continues to happen, because it makes me want to rage-cry and I'm not even there.

(However, you want to see something awesome in response -- Samantha Bee on her show broke it down for us, and also enlisted famous Scottish Time Lord D Tennant to read tweets directed to Donald Trump. I think we can all agree this is a Good Thing. The link goes to an AV Club article which includes her long-form Brexit remarks and the shorter Trump-related section, in which another Time Lord also makes a cameo appearance.)

So let's talk about the universe sending me a message --

I have long wanted an item of Lilly Pulitzer clothing, because the colors are cheerful and anyway I might be contractually obligated to have one, considering where I live. Needless Markup, in their daily hey-how-you-doing-want-to-drop-some-cash emails (they're so thoughtful!), two days ago sent a link to a Lilly Pulitzer t-shirt dress that I immediately wanted like burning. But no! I said to myself. You have other financial commitments. Wait two days, and if it's still there, you can purchase.

It is now sold out. The universe has spoken.

[eats luncheon apple with measured, disappointed force]

Cheers, and may you find good messages in dark days.

Aww, I was hoping you were going to say the dress was marked down 1000%! Drats.

But yay David Tennant reading anti-Trump tweets!

The D Tennant moments were gold -- and I actually loved the glimpse of Malcolm Tucker as well. :)

Cheers and hugs!

I clearly didn't really NEED the dress. Alas. :)

Cheers and hugs to you!

Dang it! It always sucks when the universe plots against you.

ON the other hand, thanks much for the Samantha Bee clip. It brought me joy.

It is vexing, the universe.

But yay for Samantha Bee and for you. :)

The Samantha Bee clip was fabulous and I thank you for sharing. May the universe reward your patience with an even better fashion piece soon :-)
