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...
You wanted the hot pink shade with purple highlights, right?
Actually I'm partial to brunettes (without major highlights). I was never very fond of her eloquent hairstyles (and colors). But that's Sara in a nutshell, adjusting the world to suit herself, not the other way around. And I'll let you in on a secret, I wouldn't have her any other way.


Groceries, petrol, new spotify premium code.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I went with cotton candy pink.

Edit: ...Oh yeah. Latest purchase was new covers for the throw pillows, an inspirational thing to hang on the wall, a guinea pig cage and many supplies, stuff to put together an Easter basket for my niece, and a bunch of other (cheap yet fun) things.

Just bought some chocolate cookies as a treat. Got them home, and realized there is 2.5g of trans fat in each cookie. Taking them back now. lol

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Been busy buying financial stuff over the last few days; our FY ends in April, which reminded me I hadn't got round to buying any ISAs (basically a tax-free savings scheme, for non-UK readers) this year so I had to do some research to decide what to get to use up this year's allowance. I'm generally moderately bullish on equities in the medium-to-long term but I've been buying quite a bit of those already since the lows of last year so rather than dump more into them, I split the allowance 50:50 between a capital-protected cash ISA yielding a guaranteed 3.7% per annum, and adding to a self-select equity ISA with a large-cap stock with a similar dividend yield and potential for moderate growth if my prediction re: the medium/long-term outlook is correct. At some point, I really need to get round to transferring everything to the care of my existing money guys to run it all as one single diversified portfolio but I've got a few financial loose ends to tie up first so I figure this is a good way of marking time until I can get round to really streamlining everything.

I bought some veggies last night and I broke down and bought an RC cola simply because I was feeling nostalgic.

Lumi, you have one cute guinea pig there! There are several good sites on the web for guinea pig care. http://www.guinealynx.info/ and www.guineapigcages.com are two of the best.
