How to wear a knife strapped to your thigh with a garter like a fucking lady while managing not to slice yourself open because you were fool enough to carry an unsheathed weapon next to a squishy part of your body that moves when you walk.

  1. Get a garter from somewhere; this one is a sock garter from Sock Dreams, which means it’s made to stay the fuck up there.
  2. Get a fucking sheath for those sharp, pointy things and put them in the sheath. There’ll be a velcro loop at the top so that they won’t slide out if you hold the sheath upside down.
  3. Put the garter through the loop at the top meant for whatever you’re using to attach it to yourself. Attach it to yourself, adjusting for ease of grabbing. You don’t want to put it on your inner thigh because that is awkward as hell to get out. The only way you’d be able to get it out in a timely manner is if you attached the sheath upside down, at which point you’d need two garters to keep the sheath from tilting inward toward your other thigh.
  4. Oh no, now the sheath is hanging loosely and is going to make a weird pattern against your clothing. Tuck that shit into your stockings if you’re wearing them, or use another garter if you’re not.
  5. Pull your pencil skirt back down over the knife sheath. Adjust accordingly due to tightness of skirt and shape of sheath. Make sure you can get at it as quick as you want.
  6. People look at you really strangely if this is the knife you pull out when you want to cut your apple up.

"Cheer up Hamlet" from Slings and Arrows

Cheer up, Hamlet, chin up, Hamlet
Pluck up, you melancholy Dane
So your uncle is a cad who murdered Dad and married Mum
That’s really no excuse to be as glum as you’ve become
So wise up, Hamlet, rise up, Hamlet
Perk up and sing a new refrain
Your incessant monologizing fills the castle with ennui
Your antic disposition is embarrassing to see
(And by the way, you sulky brat, the answer is “to be”)
You’re driving poor Ophelia insane
So shut up, you rogue and peasant, grow up, it’s most unpleasant
Cheer up, you melancholy Dane!

Take note, Millenials:  This is what Baby Boomers were saying about Generation Xers 25 years ago.  They called us “slackers” (and still do), even though Gen Xers (born between 1965-1980) are more likely to have gone to college and have advanced degrees than the previous generation.
We were “overshadowed” by Baby Boomers simply because there were so many more of them and they got to the positions of power before us.   Not because we were lazy or “lost” or not educated enough.  

Notice that Boomers don’t even acknowledge that Gen X exists now that they have a younger, easier punching bag around. Don’t take their shit and don’t buy into the crap narratives they’re spinning about you.

You will need: bobby pins, 2 small ponytail elastics, a comb.

  1. Start by adding a little wave to your hair. Wand waves are great for this! Here we used this wand by TiGi which is only around $30!
  2. Next put your hair half up, separating into 2 small ponytails right next to each other.
  3. Now twist the right ponytail in a downward motion and slide a bobby pin into the base near the ponytail holder. This will keep it anchored as you twist.
  4. Next, wrap the ponytail up and over as you see in photo 4 to create the top of the heart. Keep twirling in the same direction.
  5. Add bobby pins to these 3 places.
  6. Repeat on the other side.
  7. Add one more bobby pin at the bottom of the heart for extra security.
