Goths, I love 'em! I even used to be one for a bit (well, I was a Didi-Goth for at least 6 months). But there's one thing that troubles me about our cheery friends: what to do they do in summer? All that makeup, long black leather and rubber must get very sticky. I think we should show our respect for these poor unfortunates, struggling to stand out from the vanilla crowd despite blazing temperatures and sunshine that puts the rest of us in shorts and vest tops. Join me in celebrating the majesty of the Goth, who, eschewing any practicality whatever, still has the commitment to don a full length leather trenchcoat, stupid New Rock boots, and half a Superdrug counter of makeup. All hail the Hot Goth!

The sincerest form of flattery

is plaigiarism, or so I'm told. Whatever. I'm liking your Goth angle, kid :)

It had to happen sometime, chief.

I'm still trying to contrive a circumstance that will get all my spooky friends in one place at one time with a camera for you. Maybe I'll stick us all in an arboreal situation and kill two bloggy birds with one pixelated stone. Can't possibly make it any harder. I can't seem to corral these people.

HAHAHAAAAAAAA..... I just sent a link on FB to to my gothy Australian friend b/c she posted I said "Love it, but not as great as"

Keep up the good gothiness, I love this blog :-)
