Step One

Spent the morning going through my closet, getting rid of stuff that I haven't worn in years, or is never gonna fit again. It feels good. I have discovered I have some skirts I like that I forgot about, but pretty much only one pair of pants I can continue to wear this fall. I have a pair of black pants, affectionately known as the Johnny Cash pants, that have seen me through several winters. I am considering a nice bonfire for them this year. I shan't wear them again. They are pleated, too short, and hopelessly out of style. I can't wait to not have to wear them this winter. I loathe the Johnny Cash pants. I desperately need a fresh start.

By the way, all morning during my closet raid, Sirius First Wave has NOT played Turning Japanese. Happy times.

Whitney, I have a big bag of clothes for you. Not the JC pants, though. They're going up in flames.

Set my pants into a burning ring of fire
They went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

I hold on to clothes way too long, it's good to break free.

It does feel good to purge!! I need to do that again too. I did it when I moved in to this house but am in need again.

I thought the first step was 'ask her out and treat her like a lady'

At least that's what Eddie Rabbit used to say.

I think it was "I love a Rainy Night." "Peggy Sue" was also a big player.
