And by “busy week” I mean watching nonstop zombie and/or vampire movies (seriously, I’ve watched 6 this week and it’s only Wednesday). The thing about zombie/vampire movies is that they have so much promise as a genre, but more often than not, the end Hollywood result is mind numbingly stupid. (cue exasperated sigh) Stupid enough to rub off on the viewer? Well, perhaps so, as it turns out.
So the lovely Matchamonkey sent me this awesome pair of pants from Banana Republic for my birthday. The only problem is that they have a 32″ inseam, and I, being a panda of smaller stature, wear a 30″. No problem. I bust out my measuring tape and sewing machine, and then cut off 2″ off the right leg, then hem them beautifully. Too beautifully, it turns out, as I then absent mindedly proceed to measure and cut off another 2″ on the same leg!
Contemplating my stupidity…
I then re-hem the leg I just hemmed, then stand up to admire my handiwork, just to discover that….. I now have a pair of pants with one leg 32″ long, and the other 28″.
*sigh* A perfectly good $50 pair of pants down the drain. *weep* I seriously don’t know how I’ve managed to not kill myself so far in life, I’m so addle brained sometimes.
Now listening to: “DJ Tiesto & BT – Break My Fall (Adam Kay + Pettigrew + Soha Remix)”
