Anonymous said: Mistress Manners, I am going on a first date with a friend who I've liked for a while this coming Friday - we're going to dinner but he won't say where! He knows I'm gothy and is completely fine with it (he is not a goth himself but rather a metalhead)... Have you any suggestions? The lack of information is driving me insane.

Aww, congratulations on your date! I hope you have a lovely time. 

Ask your friend that you understand that he’s planned the location as a surprise, but you need at least a tiny bit of information so you can dress appropriately for whatever might be planned.

Pardon my super white legs. I am actually-allergic-to-the-sun white, and any dampness causes glare off of my skin. On the bright side, it does mean that you can really see the colors of the bath water. 

Hopefully I will be able to get more of the blank salt ingredients to start making colored salts again soon. I am sort of limping along with a color cube experiment I am still exploring, and getting a wee bit tired of Hero Blue. 

You know those photos I’ve occasionally posted of my black glittery baths, or my blood red baths? staxilicious is the one who makes those bath salts. And HERE is her post answering questions about them!

Why yes, I almost always reblog gifs of Mr. Vanian looking particularly vampiric. This should not surprise you.

All. Because. You. Couldn’t. Google. It.

Every time you spell “Edgar Allan Poe” with “Allen,” a star in the sky collapses into a black hole. The star system implodes. Billions of years in planetary development is lost. Countless extraterrestrial lives vanish.

Six of your eyelashes fall out, your toes retract slightly, your skin becomes…

Aren’t you being a bit too dramatic?

"Nevermore," a raven says as it descends from the ceiling surrounded by mist.

No one complains about a shirtless Peter Murphy, especially if he’s in a cage.

Nope, no complaints here.

Because of assorted plans and things, I’m not going to be able to watch the new episode of Hannibal until Sunday at the earliest. I’m doomed, aren’t I?
