Thanks everyone for chiming in about the BDSM stuff last chapter. Obviously, I am not an expert, but LKH thinks she is. Even I can tell when she gets it wrong, but talking about what’s wrong and in what ways is one of the great things about this blog. We talks the deep things.
And today’s chapter, which is pretty much Anita talking about her clothes.
It took three rounds of shampoo to get my hair clean. The stuff on my body didn’t seem to want to come off unless I scrubbed. There is that point in the middles of the back that you just can’t do yourself. It is one of the few areas that married people have an edge on us single folk.
You’re not single, Anita. You have a boyfriend.
And that’s crap. Your arms can reach every part of your back – and, if you’re in shape like Anita, it should be a lot easier to reach all areas of your back. Now, it might be tricky to clean effectively, but that’s what back scrubbers were designed for. But nope, it has to be hammered in that SINGLE PEOPLE ARE DUMB.
Cherry has to bring in Anita’s clothes for her, as that is all she is good for. One outfit is a red leather catsuit, but this is dismissed. This is what Anita picks out.
I ended up in a short-sleeved, black velvet, midriff top with such a low neckline that it took a special bra under it just so the bra didn’t show. Jean-Claude had kindzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz……
Oh god, I can’t, I just can’t. I can’t pretend to even give a mocking shit about LKH’s dedication to stroking Anita’s outfits. It’s an entire chapter of going on about her clothes. A WHOLE CHAPTER YOU GUYS. It’d be as if the Civil War ground to a halt in Gone With The Wind to describe Scarlet’s clothing for thirty pages.
This is what Anita is wearing, which is SO VITAL TO KNOW:
- A top with a low neckline.
- A push-up bra with no straps that Anita freaks out about. Because a strapless bra is just soooooo weird.
- A leather skirt with extra special belt loops for her shoulder holster.
- Thigh-high black boots that are so high that the tops brush up against Anita’s crotch, that have been hand-made for her so JC measured Anita in her sleep just to make sure she had a matching pair of hooker boots.
- That’s just creepy.
Anita looks over all her guns and we must know how she is an amazing badass because she has so many guns and aren’t guns amazingly cool.
I hate guns.
I don’t think they are cool and, if I’m honest, I think this kind of wankery over guns is really damaging as a mindset to promote.
Anita has a load of machine guns, isn’t that fantastic, and boasts to Asher… who has suddenly arrived, about how they cut vampires in half. Riveting. Asher – who was tortured in a way that made his flesh melt – seems to think this is very impressive.
Jamil then comes in and he’s wearing a shrug and jeans. Everyone is apparently dressed in a super impressive way, although I fail to see why anyone is supposed to find fetish gear impressive and imposing in a political context. Richard is going to be coming along as well, because.
Though he, like Jamil, had never belonged to Jean-Claude intimately enough to have specially made clothes. So it was whatever they could find in his suitcase. Happy hunting.
I don’t like the implication that it’s okay for JC to measure people in their sleep and to be such a control freak that he must control what everyone is wearing, even away from home. It is not okay. It’s really not okay.
