Pics, or it didn't happen.

I LOVE that. I wish I had the legs to pull off something like that. I bet you'll be a knock-out in it.
Thanks! It's a bit different from my usual style but I'm leaving for a cruise after Thanksgiving and I thought this would be a nice piece to take with me. Hopefully I can pull it off!

Finally broke down and bought a foam-type hair color. I have to accept that it's time to start dying my hair. Too much gray to ignore.

Even if I go entirely grey within the next year, I will never dye my hair. I refuse to!

In some ways different, but actually consistent in other ways, esp. the core silhouette. You have a pretty clearly defined preference for what works for you.

I've always liked the theoretical idea of reptiles as pets - it does sound cool - but the work, cost, and time involved seems high to me. Do you already have any similar pets, or will you need to construct a vivarium, etc to house him?

Cartmel sticky toffee pudding (I don't normally like sticky toffee, but this one takes the cake so to speak, especially when thoroughly heated in the oven ), drenched in Madagascan vanilla custard. It's been one of those days.

Like my father, i started getting random greys here and there. But like, all of a sudden! There were none and then suddenly *boom*. I've not taken to "dying" my hair per se, but i have been having fun going with crazy colors. I'm not bleaching my hair first, so i don't get PINK! hair, but more like a pink sheen that can't really be seen unless i'm in the sun. The greys pick it up nicely (they pretty much go pink totally). I've also tried blue and candy apple red. But i like the pink the best. Don't know if i'll ever go the 'real' dye route or not. I always said i wouldn't but i've learned never say never!

What is a water dragon?


Last week was my birthday so i received some birthday money. It was like, totally burning a hole in my pocket, so yesterday i went out in the raw, rainy cold to hit Best Buy (of course today is gorgeous, but i just HAD to go yesterday).

They've been having great sales on DVDs and Blu-Rays so i got the following:

Bridges of Madison County $3.99
Pleasantville $3.99
This is Spinal Tap on Blu Ray $7.99
Platoon on BR $9.99
Kill Bill Vol 2 (already had 1) on BR $6.99
And an Oceans Collection (the original with the Rat Pack) and 11, 12 & 13 for $9.99

w00t!

Thank you!

It's so funny, i remember renting Bridges from the library and thinking, "Why the hell did i borrow this? I'm going to hate it." And then, watching it, i sobbed my brains out.

I had it on VHS (along with most of the other movies i bought yesterday) and when i saw the incredibly low prices i just HAD to upgrade ('specially since i don't even OWN a vhs player now.)
