31. Courtney Love at the office.

32. Just need thick tights.

33. Why are there no tights in my drawer? I own so many tights!

34. You'd think tights had committed a crime the way they hide.

35. Patterned tights kind of are a crime.

36. Never a shortage of them though, is there?

37. Wait here's a pair…

38. Great, a ladder.

39. Wear them anyway?

40.You're not actually Courtney Love.

46. Fuck it, I'll just spray perfume on the feet.

47. OK the whole tights.

48. Warm > clean.

63. Gonna be sweaty and wearing skanky old tights when I get to work. Cool.

64. ~Professional.

65. FINE, I'll just have to lose some layers for now.

66. OMG I did NOT mean to show my bra taking my jumper off then.

67. Sure, I'll just be the person doing a bus striptease on a Tuesday.

68. Don't you fucking wink at me, pervert.

69. "Did you get into work OK today, no bus troubs?"

70. "Great! Other than the public transport peep show" :|

73. Especially against my red embarrassed face.

74. AGH left my scarf on the bus!
