Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

Lots of planning today!!!

Tonight Suzuka, Yuki, Haruka, and Diana all started planning for their costumes.  Diana came up with a design that everyone loves.  It’s kind of cheerleadery, but designed to be cute, like an idol outfit, with some Japanese design elements.  So they all went to the fabric store and got a bunch of fabric and they’ve been busily cutting and pinning and patterning and sewing.  Diana’s pretty good at it!

The way undersized top hat with a little ribbon might be too much, though.  Hah.

I asked what they’re going to do about panties.  I’m actually not kidding about that, Yuki told me a bunch of horror stories and those dresses are pretty short.  They said they’ve got it covered, there are special shorts for that kind of situation, and the dresses are going to have all sorts of frills and stuff too, so it’ll be hard to see anything even if they have their heels to their forehead.

And… I’ve seen them practice.  They do, a couple of times.  Geez.

And Anathema’s planning for her wedding this weekend too.  She’s…  not really in a good place.  She seems to feel like she doesn’t really deserve it, or Joe, or anything.  I mean, she wants to go through with it, and it’s not that she doesn’t love Joe or anything, but… I guess her past is coming back to haunt her.  I mean, every day she carries a reminder of her past, inside of her.  She has really mixed feelings about everything.  She’s trying to keep a brave face, but… it’s showing through.

I think maybe she needs to talk to Crystal.  Crystal might understand more than the rest of us.  It’s not like I think Anathema’s going to, well, do what Crystal did, but…  the rest of us haven’t been in quite that… shape before.

It’s really sad.  Cat-girl was having all that fun, and such a great life…  full of, well…  physical satisfaction and not much else, I guess… right up until it all fell apart.  And I feel a little bad about that.  I had a part in it, however small..

Oh well,  What’s done is done and frankly I don’t really have control over anything I do in that realm anyway.  It’s better if I cooperate, but even then…

More storms on Wednesday and Thursday.  I guess this is the stormy season.

I still don’t know what a bridesmaid does.  Sabby says don’t worry about it, our job is just to make sure the bride is supported and to not upstage her.  I can do that.  It’s not like Anathema has one of those dresses with the long train, so at least we don’t have to be carrying a train around.  She’s got a black dress with see through lacy mesh on the chest, spaghetti straps, and a plunging back with criss-cross straps. It’s short and tight but covers everything well.  Somehow she managed to go for beautiful, sexy, classy, and just a little bit, well, cat-girl, all in the same dress.  That girl knows how to fashion.  It doesn’t quite have the same effect with the baby bump, but she makes it work.

Joe’s gonna love it.

I should ask her for advice for my next formal outing.  Whatever that is.

Love you all!!! ❤️
