Yep, along with the Serenity I also got. It will just be awhile, though. I won't see either of them until I get back from Korea.



End of the year? Getting one of THESE...

...as a reward for paying off my last credit card. The Abramsprise will be for the following year, after finally retiring my college loan.

Gotta give myself incentives.

Just when I wonder whether I spend too much on clothes, comes this healthy reassurance that everyone has their niche interests they splash out on that few else would understand.

Actually, I never wondered about it. But I like to pretend I do, to salve my conscience...

These pieces are truly works of art (met the guys behind them, they are Lucasfilm level model workers. Some of them have actually worked for The Ranch).

Fine art for geeks.



I don't indulge much...but I do indulge.

I need to color my hair, as well. I usually darken mine so it looks red, rather than some washed-out blonde.

And i haven't seen my girlfriend in three days. So god only knows what color her hair is. Last i saw her, she had chocolate brown hair with dark blue highlights. A month earlier, she was blonde...

I give up... *sigh* I'll never understand women.

I don't really need it, but I got a special thinks in the liner notes so I just ordered the new re-release of the score from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

Too funny. I hadn't seen blue hair in years, probably, but I just got home from Target, where there was a customer with... dark blue hair.

Bought food. Nothing exciting.

I normally go black or dark red (from brown), but I've been wanting to try something (truly) different for awhile now.

Well, I would suggest blue, but I am rather biased in that direction.

Blue is totally an option. Will know for sure tomorrow.

...This is probably more exciting to me than it should be.

As good a reason as any.

You wanted the hot pink shade with purple highlights, right?




Special offer at the tailor, so ordered a couple of pairs of odd trousers: one in a charcoal grey flannel, the other in a blue-grey (not dissimilar to "RAF blue") tweed. They're going to replace 2 older odd pairs of trousers (a mid-brown herringbone flannel and a dark green flannel) in my wardrobe that don't fit me quite how I'd like and in the case of the green have definitely seen better days.
