    I was driving to pick my son up from school when I caught this. You're driving a Mercedes Benz SUV and you can't pay for home delivery? Plus it has been raining off and on all day, so taking a real chance with possibly ruining your lovely new sofa.

    Yet another example of a person with far more money than sense.

    I have dreads, yes...I am a dirty hippie...

    No, really, I'm not.

    ..Well, maybe a little... :p

    You're adorable! That's what you are! And the dreads look good on you. Just be sure to keep track of them: I worked in an ice cream shop through university, and there was a lady who used to come in and sometimes fall asleep in the booths. She often left a few dreads behind when she woke up. :ack:

    A custom-made bowl I ordered arrived today. The artist makes them to order, with any saying you wish in the glaze, so of course I went for...

    For the specialised use of this bowl I chose the snail. The star pattern which was also available would have been more appropriate, but the star was quite plain, and the snail was too cute to pass up.

    The specialised use? It's a yarn bowl, used to hold a ball of yarn in one place while knitting (rather than down the back of the chair or all over the floor, much to the delight of my cats) while the string of yarn can move freely with much less chance of tangling. I've wanted one of these for ages, so I finally treated myself to one.

    The icing on the cake is the message the artist wrote on the box. I had no idea whether or not she'd get the message I requested to have on the bowl, but she obviously knows her stuff. :)

    The bowl is from Little Wren Pottery, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    ^Cool shirt.




    Lovely! Is that a new pet? I wasn't aware you could legally keep them as pets.

    ^They're lovely! It's why I wanted a picture. :D
    I wish! No, I don't own him, I just got to hold him. :)
    He's from an Owl sanctuary.

    Piercings are certainly your choice to do, but wow... you've got such a really beautiful face there, marred by little steel hoops (IMHO). Whatever it takes, try to do whatever is necessary to keep from getting hole scars. You're too adorable! Even more so than Tina Fey. ;)


    Pure One, that barn owl looks terrific--must've been quite an experience having him perched on your arm. :techman:

    Oh man, that is so insulting. I know you were trying to be nice and all, but that's just really insulting. If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all.

    Gary, I'm afraid I agree with tsq here. I know you're trying to be nice, but the way you put that comes across as insulting and more than a little creepy.
