Bokrea 2008

I limited myself.
Alot.
Severely.

But seriously, the stack of novels I have waiting to be read is as tall as me, or more.

So I mostly shopped for usefulness.

Dictionaries are always handy (even pocket variations of such).
With my relationship to alcohol, a couple of books about drinking (or rather the mixing of drinks) will always be useful.
The recipe book I have realised (since N owns it) is rather useful for basic stuff I have no clue how to go about.
And who can resist maps? :)

Then..
Another mystery novel. Well, it is just one. An evening's entertainment.
A book with japanese art. Can never hurt to have. Good for my art library.
More origami. This one seems quite decent, though I knew about half the patterns.
And a book about weapons. <3 No resisting that one.

Got my haircolour back.




Hair's Done

Edit: Fixed the colour somewhat. This is what it looked like indoors. In sunlight it was very very pink.
























______________________________________

The first three photos are of me with new haircolour. Due to weird lighting I was unable to get the colour to show, so I took a closeup of some hair where the actual colour is visible. The weird colour on the photos led to my eyes looking weird though, which is cool. Oh, and Linus is enjoying looking at my new colourfulness.

Need.

I need a hug (or similar comforting extended contact), a shoulder massage, and a smoke. Not necessarily in that order.

Oh my...

I just realised that my bright red glasses will probably NOT look well with my pink hair.

Ah well.

And yes, it deserved a post of its own, rather than editing the old one.

Any good suggestions on making the pink match the bright red? ;)

4 mm and going...

The second pair piercings are 4mm, I have decided to get them up to 6 - mostly because I can re-use most of my jewellery then. I am also considering getting the third set up to 4 though, simply because the stretched piercings are much healthier than the "normal" (unstretched) ones. I am taking a break at the moment because the right ear got a minor infection - so I will leave them to heal for a while before easing them up to five and then six. I don't have any 5mm jewellery, so I will have to move faster than I like on that step, not being able to stop like I have been doing on each jewellery size this time around. However on the first ones I went from 2 to 6 mm on three weeks and they are fine so I guess I shouldn't worry so much (partly lack of sense partly they just slid through - I have had some of that now too, after stretching to 3mm I didn't need the 4mm horn, it just went right through and out on the back - however two days later I got that darned infection - probably drooled on my pillow then rubbed my ear in it).

I also bought hair dye during the weekend, so I will soon (after a new home is secured, mind) return to my true pink-purple haired self. Looking forwards to it? Oh yes baby. Now I just lack those hot pink Underground boots. :P~~~

And I should SO cut my hair. Hrm. Ah well.. I'll leave it long and straight for now.

Testing new gadgets.

Test photos with the new flash, photoing what was closest to me at the time - the cat on my lap.

"Mummy, why are you looking at me through that big black thing there? You look like a freak."
He was purring all the while though, luckily for me his fear of cameras is beaten by his love of scratches ;)

A New Month

Not much have happened. I added eight books to my To-Read stack, diminished it somewhat by actually reading a few items, worked alot, worried more, was happy some of the time and sad some of the time. I also spent quite alot of time feeling rather hopeful.

Yesterday I worked late, and when I left home in the morning the weather was rainy but warm. By the time I was going home from work there was a snow storm and it was almost impossible to go anywhere. It is a long time since I felt so sorry for myself as when I was out in that cold and wind and snow, totally blinded and kept walking off the road and into drifts that filled my sneakers with snow. A drink at a bar when I got to the mall where I was meeting up with C warmed me somewhat but I am still slightly freaked out about the entire experience.

I was hoping spring would soon arrive after the warm winter, instead winter apparently decided to arrive at last. It is still snowing, but at least it is no longer windy.

This week I will try to renew my passport. Wish me luck.
