Last pictures with old sofa

...and it is almost not visible, already being taken apart.

Someone I know asked a question in FB. I think she asked if people notice (women's, I guess) nails. The answers ranged from on topic to people stating that women in their thirties and up shouldn't wear eyeliner or attempt that goth look or wear too much make-up. I found that very interesting. Especially the eyeliner part. I am a woman in my thirties and I wear eyeliner. And I wound up thinking about that comment, the broody way I sometimes get a hang-up on irrelevant things that people say (even people I don't know).

While I don't attempt the goth look, I refuse to give up my eyeliner. However, I am blessed with a baby-face look from my mother's side of the family so maybe that excuses me? (Which does have the side effect that I am always carded if I want to buy alcohol or lottery tickets :/ )

furniture in my livingroom.
And with tea cup.


  1. Oh, that's just a silly opinion about using eyeliner. No matter what your age is, you can use eyeliner and it will give more structure to the eyes. My granny uses it - not maybe just in deep black - and it definitely looks good o her.

    So, counting that she's 82, we've got somewhat 50 years left :D

  2. Ah, I think she said "Black eyeliner" if that makes you (un)happier. :P And I am not letting go of that either! Not in at least 20 years! And then I will review the situation and probably continue.

  3. Goth look is nice. Actually, one of the main characters of my so-called novel (sometimes in progress) is a chubby goth girl from the north >:)

    1. I was a goth girl in back in the times. I don't dare count the years, it was like when I accidentally realised it is 18 years since I started learning German. Terrifying how fast the years pass nowadays. But I don't really miss the goth look, I enjoy colour way too much. But there are residue - green and blue and purplepink hair, eyeliner, a tendency to wear black and boots. I still have my velvet cloak somewhere in the basement. Can't bear to cut it up to use for something else. I saved all the collars, bracelets, spikes and chains from that time too, I have them in a drawer somewhere bundled into a plastic bag.

    2. Cool. You should post some old pics from your goth years >:)

      I listen to goth-metal from time to time (Theatre of Tragedy, Lacuna Coil, Type O Negative, My Dying Bride), but I'm mostly a black metal addict.

    3. There are at least a few if you dig deep enough into this blog. Including a picture of me from before I started high school.. Mighty cute teenie goth. There is a severe lack of pictures of me in full garb - the ones I had taken were after my camera broke down but before I knew about it, and the rest of the time I did a fairly good job of dodging cameras.

      I actually didn't really like "goth metal" so much. Mostly listened to the older stuff, like Sisters of Mercy and such. Darkwave and whatnot. Then I slipped back into metal somewhat, then back to goth, then to synth after a few friends went through a campaign to convince me digital music could be good too. And I am still there...


Be nice!
