As most of her really nice clothes have been sold off in preparation for her new life in the country, it was necessary to order two brand new t-shirts so she'd have something to participate with. Although these ones are new, it's not the first time the exact same shirts have lived in the insomniac's closet. But the old ones were so worn out, it seemed an excellent excuse to order a replacement set; this time in a men's extra-large as, towards the end, the previous set were rather snug. Probably due to overwashing and shrinkage.
In keeping with the Red & Black Week theme, the designs are of a somewhat dark nature, and are the insomniac's three most favourite things in the whole world: Ravens, Skeletons and Coffee. Not necessarily in that order.

And because the colours fit the theme - even though the design isn't particularly dark - an old sweater from twenty years ago that was discovered at the bottom of the closet just recently while packing, which will be styled with the t-shirts, a pair of jeans and black boots. Perfect for country life. And proof that it pays to never throw anything away. Ever.

Lastly, to help keep her occupied during those long days in the trailer when she is without power, running water or the internet, a new coffee mug and book. With all this free time on her hands, it's the perfect opportunity to fulfill her childhood fantasy of having a pet raven. So she needs to do a little research. Aside from Google.

Congratulations and a big thank-you to Ms. Kitty for hosting this, her third annual Red & Black Week! The diverse entries from all the participants have kept the insomniac in front of her computer far too much this week. Now it's time to get on with the packing; as soon as she finishes just one last cup of coffee ...
Until next time, the insomniac wishes you nights of blissful sleep filled with pleasant dreams. Goodnight, my pretties.
PostScript: Even though it seems incredibly rude to include this at the bottom of Ms. Kitty's theme post, the insomniac would like to remind everyone they have until 6:00 p.m. MDT Saturday, June 8th to enter the Giveaway - see previous post for details. Ms. Kitty, you should enter too - there are many Red and Black things in the Attic to choose from, should you win ...
