Mani: Graphical industry

I have a top coat that supposedly glows under a blacklight, I will report back on that.

So, apparently, as it turns out, I NEVER go out. At least I have no suggestions what so ever where to meet people. I am trawling my brain and coming up blank. Waah! I know, I thought, it felt like I do go places, sometimes weekly, and drink tea and sometimes have a meal, but I blank out now. When I need suggestions. It's like I...

..stayed in a moment too long and forgot how to leave the house. How does the door work again?

This post brought to you by the fact that I feel like a blithering idiot in interactions with other people at the moment.

Look! Bad mobile photo in bad light, but she isn't at all as spooked about being near me anymore. I think she was so shocked by being left with the nasty lady at the vet for her spaying that she decided to show me more affection and trust. She is sleeping next to me in bed and is happy to be petted and touched and I am even allowed to pick her up and put her down elsewhere (like on the bed or on my lap).

The cone doesn't seem to inhibit her though I am sure she will be happy to be rid of it.

Stockholm New Year! (Taken Jan 4th.)

NYE hair-do follow-up

I thought I had posted these but apparently not.

Here is a photo that was taken of my hair during the evening. (The blue ends were sticking out all around but aren't that visible in this photo.)

 Here is what happened when I started pulling out all the bobby pins that held it up that neatly. Now this first photo looks more like me (hair in front hanging down, high tail, dreads with blue highlights? Sure.)...

...the laughing started around here. This was just weird. Then I spent 30 minutes trying to brust it out, swearing all the while that I would cut it short(er) come morning. No need to say I didn't. :)

Terrible clean-up job but well. It is what it is. It looked great the day after. :P 

Huggy wuggy and stuff.

These first two are blurry, but they give an impression of the display as seen from my flat. On a clear NYE like last night we can see the fireworks from four municipalities, the horizon is a glow all around. That includes seeing the Sthlm city ones - but I don't have any photos of them, being too busy watching! 

There are usually a few local people putting on a show too - there's some people who go up on the hill and wait until most people have fired off their stuff, then they put on a slightly-above-average display. This is actually a hill quite a bit away; to walk to the foot of the hill would take 10-15 minutes from here at a fast pace - my compact camera did an excellent job of zooming in across the distance!
