I feel like I haven't posted a proper entry for ages
. Sooooo, on the tail-end of some excellent high spirits, you're going to get one now, oh yes. :D
Today I got half of my hair loped off. I am thrilled
with it. :DDD I am also going properly grey by now, sadly (it's genetic, both my mum and grandmother's hair went grey very early on -- my grandmother was twenty-six at the time, apparently, so I'm doing pretty damn well to have held off until I'm thirty), and my scalp is hellishly sensitive these days, so I have made the executive decision to stop colouring my hair. On the advice of my hairdresser, however (who is spec-fucking-tacular, I love her so much, she is indispensable
) I got highlights instead. They're not blond, but a pretty caramel colour that goes beautifully with my dark-chocolate-coloured hair. I feel like a million bucks, no shit. There's been a spring to my step today like you can't imagine. It kind of helps that today is the first proper day of spring, really -- it's almost 15 C outside, 19 C in the sun, and I am just. FUCK, I HAVE MISSED THIS FEELING. :))))))
I also got a bunch of other shit done, lots of errands I've been neglecting. Got a couple new tops, too, a mascara, FOUND SOME DECENT WRITING PAPER, HOLY SHIT, I'VE ONLY BEEN LOOKING FOR A YEAR AND A HALF
, got something sorted that I have also been meaning to get to in forever, and on the way back I also bought two beautiful
roses for the balcony -- they are the colour of cognac. I can't stop staring at them. :D I can't wait to plant them!!
Guys. I am bowled over
by the response to the puppy Clint fic
. WOW. Just, all of the love, I cannot
. ALSO GUYS LOOK. LOOK WHAT essouffle DREW
. DJFHGLSKJDFLDFJG IT'S LIKE S/HE REACHED INSIDE MY HEAD AND TOOK THE IMAGE OUT OF IT AND PUT IT DOWN ON PAPER. JFHGDFSKJGHKJDSFHSFJG I AM SO IN LOVE WITH IT, THIS IS SO THEM
I CAN'T GET OVER IT. *___________*
So now that puppy Clint is out of the way, I should really knuckle down and start making sense of the tangle of notes I have for the cap_ironman reverse big bang. *determined face* Which is what I'll be doing now, while I'm sat in my new favourite coffee shop that is quite delightful. :) I leave you with the following interesting thing.
I've been meaning to boost the signal for, let's see, ten days now? UGH, THIS IS PATHETIC, SELF. My friend rosalui
is putting a project together. Let me just c/p her description of it here. It's extremely interesting, and I know it's a topic that is very close to the heart of a few people on my flist. So you guys, if you like, she's looking for volunteers to take part. Seriously, Rosa is a wonderful person, and her videos are legendary
, she's got such a deft hand with editing. I know she will give the project all she's got, so it would be awesome to get more people to take part. :)
In Rosalui's words:We grow up surrounded by photographs of women with every flaw carefully photoshopped out - and then are told that we can be as thin as they are, as beautiful as they are, as flawless as they are, if only we try harder. We are taught that beauty is essential to happiness, to success, to our professional lives. We are taught that weight is the best and most important measure of health. We are constantly reminded that we are companions, to be admired - the pretty prize the guy strives for, the superheroine with heels and cleavage windows.
We are just a couple of girls with laptops and our own piles of insecurity. But we want, in our own small way, to speak out. And we are putting together a video.( Cut for the peeps who would like to find out more )
The whole post is here
. If you fancy taking part, and even if you just find the subject interesting, I urge you to go take a look. <333
FOR YOUR TIME.
HOLD ON TO YOUR OVARIES
I STILL DON'T GET HOW HE EXISTS, I DO NOT.
LAST NIGHT I DREAMT THAT I HAD TO KISS TOM HARDY. LIKE, SAVE THE WORLD HAD TO (IT WAS A CHORE, LET ME TELL YOU, I RESISTED SO HARD. >.>;;). AND I CALLED HIM TOMMY, AND HE WAS REALLY NERVOUS. SUBCONSCIOUS, I LOVE YOU.
WHAT EVEN IS HE, I CAN'T.
Also, one last pretty. This is FOREVER MY CLINT/PHIL THEME SONG, not to mention my
theme song. :) someidiothasice

what I mean. :')))))
