Lauren: Ugly Sweater Edition (So Hawt Right Now)

The infamous audition for the indie dance/rock band is tonight. This morning I dug through my closet for the perfect thing to wear. Something that proclaims "I AM INDIE." A piece of clothing that would make Juno and all of her hamburger-shaped telephones jealous. I thought that surely there must be one item hiding in the depths of my closet, waiting to make an appearance on this very night.

Just when I was about to give up hope, I stumbled upon this lovely sweater that I acquired from mugging Mr. Rogers' grandmother one fine evening several months ago. Overjoyed with my findings, I had to have an obligatory photo shoot with myself, posing in front of my collection of vintage 45s for dramatic effect. I even attempted to edit the lighting and colorization effects so that all my myspace friends can see how hip, cool, and artsy I am when it inevitably becomes my profile picture. Unfortunately, instead of looking hip, cool, and artsy, it just looks like I'm guest starring in a bad episode of "Touched By An Angel."

Didn't take long for me to lose the sweater and go shopping.

The audition is at 8:30. Steve's going with me for moral support. We'll see what happens. If it goes well, I might be adding another band to my repertoire. If it does not go well, I'll probably at least have something really funny to write about. :)


  1. Fingers crossed - you might be the next Jack White!

  2. Good luck! That sweater is hilarious and that picture is even better. Can't wait to hear how it goes.

  3. Where did you find this? I've only found sweaters like that before at thrift stores!


It makes my day when YOU leave me comments. :D
