FIRST OF JUNE Week continues.

"Way to go and tuck yourself into the craw
Of the fearsome bird of black armour
A dusty mausoleum, a shrine to the part of yourself
That died a hundred times over"
-- First of June, All That You've Ever Wanted

My city is underwater. The military is here. The rain won't stop. I'm one of the lucky few who live high, high above the flood waters, and who's able to get to my nearly empty office building. So, I'm dubbing this Apocalypse Week.

"And the great day of wrath has come
And here's mud in your big red eye
The poker's in the fire
And the locusts take the sky
And the Earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming of you"
-- Tom Waits, Earth Died Screaming

"Rock 'n' roll, know what I'm saying
And everywhere I look there's a devil waiting
Got a devil's haircut in my mind"
-- Beck, Devils Haircut


My favourite thing about this outfit is the vaguely satanic design on the back of the dress, which I didn't notice when I bought it. Praise Baphomet! FOR FASHION!
