Man, I can't wait for Constance to get the hell out of there and on with her life. They held a secret prom that she wasn't invited to. What. The. Fuck.

Oh christ... I saw the retrosexual thing coming a mile away. My ex was all retro happy beyond belief and a lot of it came down to him wanting desperately to be a victorian gentleman, or southern gentleman, or whatever other sort of "gentleman" had fancy, expensive ass clothes. Over the years I saw more and more people doing it, then making it a trend, then a fad. Now it's firmly in the mainstream. Great.
The thing that bothers me about the retro thing is that the vast majority of the 'styles' revolving around it (ex. steampunk) are only styles that people with plenty of money to waste can follow. I tried for a little while, but the clothes are pricey beyond reason. Not to mention I become irritable at the idea of wearing a corset and dress that takes up more space than a desk.
