Pretty things

I chopped off all my hairs! I'd reached a point where all I ever did was put my hair up in a braid or ponytail. It's hard to do much else when one is constantly helmeted. Now I'm FREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! scrottie says he doesn't recognize me.

New 'do

The best part was the hair salon. It's a small business that appears to be* run by an Asian couple, and I didn't have to make any small talk whatsoever while the stylist cut my hair. No appointment needed and they're open on Sundays.


Yesterday, sytharin and securechannel hosted an afternoon tea for a couple of friends. The perfect opportunity to get out Grandma's china and inventory it. I have enough pieces to serve up a fancy 12-person dinner, but I am just happy to see things get used. Much of the china was still packed in one of the original boxes, and I inherited only half of the lot. My mom views things like the china as evidence of a "shop-a-holic" tendency in the family, and I think she isn't wrong. I move around enough that any stuff that I acquire has to repeatedly earn its keep.

You can't quite see the salmon-colored house, but I LOVE the hilarity of the house color combination along this block. Somber neighbor with purplish color style statement, somber neighbor, I don't even know what you call that violent bright teal color, then bright salmon because you WILL be happy, dangnabit.

It was a "both paws out" evening yesterday:

Two paws out

"Are you taking my picture again?"
Two paws out

*I say "appears to be" because I didn't ask, heh.
