If you find me, but I'm far away
You can watch me breathe

If you see me, but I'm not there
You can know I'll be back

If you know me, but I'm someone else
You can tell my spirit's gone

If you can tell me who I am, but I can't hear you
You can save the silence from words

If you can save me, but I slip through fingers
You can wait until I reach for your hand

If you can wait for me ...
There is no but ...
You will be found.

Not quite a post-it, but more environmental.

For me to remember things, I have to either try really really hard or have something out in plain sight. Written notes only work for me if I see them. And since I don't like having my hands or pockets full, anything I have to carry around only works as long as I'm willing to schlep the object around with me wherever I go.

I almost can't turn my brain off the past few days. Extra-spaced. No reason I can determine yet.

So what did the contents of thinkaboutthis get you?

pockets
My pockets are constantly full. There's usually a crochet hook and a Sharpie... the other contents are mutable. and do constantly mutate.

As for thinkaboutthis... I haven't thoughtaboutit yet.

Mobility
I run too much to carry much in my pockets without it either flying out of said pocket or swinging around and making life uncomfortable. Nothing like an all out sprint in cargo pants with your wallet smacking your leg every step.

One of the reasons I prefer jeans. The back pockets are usually snug and perfect wallet size.

And Sharpies rule ...

Jeans
You prefer jeans, do you? *giggles* I never wear them anymore. Haven't for... 2 or 3 years now. I just determined one day that they looked dumb on me and haven't put them on since. I wear khakis most of the time... my beat-up pairs with patches and snatches of embroidery from my bored moments. All the mess-ups have stories behind them. And I think I look good in khakis. That or shorts. Blue jean SHORTS are ok. Or even capris. Just not pants. And that's all denim, not just blue.

As for mobility... I wear a style that allows me to stuff whatever I want into my pockets and still run about.

I'm still a GS. *shrugs* It's still fun for me, so... The motto's been "be prepared". I feel that carrying a sharpie goes a long way towards fulfilling that.

And my wallet is made of duct tape. Doesn't smack too hard.

All Things Denim
I guess denim tends to suit me more. I look all right in khakis, and have to wear those to work most days, but I can get away with black jeans. I need more pairs of those. I also like the feel, especially of a good broken-in pair. And damage resistance is nice, too. My girlfriend has also commented that her friends compliment her on my rear. Of course, I never hear these things, but hey, that's what being oblivious is all about.

Your wallet is duct tape constructed? Definitely less smack to the ounce, but I doubt I could assemble that without uncovered sticky spots. That would not be cool, though the mental image of having to fight the wallet to get money is entertaining. A simple suede one works fine by me. But I know my style tends towards the minimalist. Jeans and solid t-shirts are the core of my closet. I usually stay away from louder patterns or complex prints. [shrug]

The only real stitching I've done in recent time is some repairs on a down jacket to plug the holes that are allowing feathers to launch themselves airborne each time I sit down. Actually, one of them got bigger, so I better take care of that now.

On a side note, scouting's worth it for as long as you enjoy it. I went all through cub scouts, then bailed shortly after reaching the actual boy scout level.

All things smooth and silky, y'mean.
Black jeans used to be my thing... no more. I love my broken-in pants too much. And, of course, there's always the nice-material option that just plain feels good. That goes more with shirts, though.

As for damage resistance... well... I just collect bruises/scars. *shrugs* At least it makes for a good story. "Yeah, that one's from the time... " For some reason, it's always my left foot...

I did not assemble my own wallet, sadly, though it DOES seem like something I'd do... anything else you ask me to put together/assemble/make, I can. An advantage of having tiny tiny hands, I s'pose. Sooner or later I'll figure out how to make these wallets... I use this one more for the cool value and "lack of anything else" than smack-lack, but hey!

Black and white is my favourite clothing colour scheme. Call me modulated Goth.

Yeah, I have a hole I need to patch. I'm waiting for a kid to give me a band-patch... *sighs* He always forgets.

Rougher on the seat
Broken-in pants of whatever kind are the best. But nice material pants I usually end up scuffing, tearing, or any other kind of "Oops, I forgot to be careful with these pants." Nice shirts is a different story, but then pants do suffer more wear per wear. One reason I prefer pants with more damage resistance. My left foot's not so much of a target, I guess; my feet just get cold if I walk around barefoot.

Monochromatic modulated Goth. The phrase conjures up some interesting images of attire, and even rolls off the tongue in a pique-your-curiosity kind of way. I tend towards an equal distribution of white, black, tan, blue, and green. Plus a few purple or red items. I do have WAY too many shirts, but I do like having options.

Livejournal or email?
Barefoot is life. I thought maybe I could change my first-impression label from "Hippychick" to "punkgirl" when I cut my hair... but... it didn't work. Could it have anything to do with the bare feet or the guitar carrying? Constant singing? General life attitude? *thinks about it* Nah.

Mother says I'm scruffy. I'm comfortable. The boys like it, I like it, it provokes start-a-conversation commentary... I'm all good.

Be Comfortable
Because it's better than anything else.

Barefoot, for me, is only an occasional thing. I've got sensitive feet. I enjoy the feel of grass, but hate it when my feet get cold. At the beach, screw sandals and scorching sand ... I'm walking out there and not putting out the flames until I hit salt water. So I guess it depends on temperature.

And comfort, as an aspect of personal style, always has to be high up there.

well, as for comfort...
I'm sure I'll join a nudist colony eventually. Can't without the approval of my parents at this point... and they're not likely to give it.

As for temperature...
It doesn't usually bother me at all. Hot or cold. *shrugs* Moreso when I had Godiva-hair that kept me warm all over the place, but still now. I have a general feeling that clothing's pretty useless.

Warmth Addict
My opinions of clothing are at least partly biased by the fact that I've been know to curl up in front of the heat vent. I wouldn't last long at a nudist colony where temps ever got below 60, much less any temperature most would consider actually cold. My body is a little scant on the insulation.

Godiva hair? Was it hard to manage hair that long?

Hair.
I've classified myself as a warmth addict, too... I love it. I just... don't mind cold.

As for the hair... No, not really. Not as hard as you'd think. As long as I kept on keeping care of it, it was all good. I tended to wash it at night so it'd dry before morning... or almost... and then brush it several times during the day if it was down... or braid it. Or do it somehow. *shrugs* It was wonderful and beautiful, and I loved it. But... I felt like cutting it off. And I did. And I still love my hair.
