chd strikes again  
Didn't go to the movie yesterday, due to buying too many heavy graphic novels and fruit, none of which I wanted to haul to the movie theatre. This all would have been avoided if I'd just gone to the movie first upon arriving in Cork, but instead I stopped and got my hair cut. This was a week shy of the 6 weeks of Not Doing Anything To My Hair moratorium I'd set, but the ends were very, very dark, and I was growing increasingly unhappy with that, so I went ahead and got the dark bits more or less cut out. This meant cutting about 4 inches off, which has left my hair in much better shape and feeling weirdly short. All things considered, I think I did very well in not cutting it all off, given that I'm in the midst of a book and I didn't feel well yesterday and yadda yadda yadda. (Mom thought I shouldn't cut my hair until I was not in the middle of a book. This would've meant not cutting my hair until sometime in 2008, which is longer than I was willing to wait. :))

badly focused, decent lighting

better focus, poor lighting, dire expression

(length compared to this, five weeks ago.)

I miss my Rogue stripe.

Picked up the Marvel Secret Wars GN in Cork, due to its gorgeous artwork. A comic geek at the counter enthused enthusiastically about it to me (the art, anyway; I'm not sure he said a lot about the story), and said nothing about the Ultimate X-Men GN I also picked up. :) Um. Bought fruit. Came home and watched 3 episodes of Gilmore Girls, which then caused me to hit debela with a stick because augh the addiction of it all. She, helpfully, said, "Just wait til you watch the next episode." Augh! Oh, and I made what I thought was really a *quite* nice dinner (baked chicken with a boxed pasta that I tarted up by sauteeing some mushrooms and throwing 'em in; if I'd had tomatoes I'd have added them too, but I didn't, and carrots), but sadly, I was the only one who enjoyed it, 'cause Ted wasn't hungry when he came home. Perhaps he can have it for dinner tonight.

I got up late this morning and now it's past 9 and I haven't started writing yet. Must remedy that, so I'm off to work. Wish me luck.

I know I'm the one who is supposed to enthuse about things at the counter, but I was having a "Emma Frost? Xavier? EWWW!" Moment/Day.(There was also a bit of Kara? Kal-el? WHAT? going on.)
Anyway what else are my customers for but to be proper fanboys and scare away customers?

Love the hair! styles like that make me wish my hair was straighter!

Your hair looks marvelous!

I appear to be growing mine out a tiny bit, as it may be as long as 4" in places (instead of my usual 2" or less), but it's driving me a little mad, and I don't know quite where I want to take it. At least the color is still brilliant, if washing out to greyish purple in places, and the odd blonde at the edges.

Love the new 'do! That second picture makes your eyes look *very* blue on my monitor.

Yay Gilmore Girls!

"tarted up". :) Are you being infected by Brit-speak? :>

In regards to the very blue eyes in the 2nd pic, I was thinking fremen from Dune.

Hair's cute. I miss your Rogue stripe too.

I have a Dale at my house. Just thought you should know. :)

Hrm. I actually prefer the lighting in the second picture. But that "Oh, crud! Won't logrusboy EVER go away?!!" expression...well, actually, it gives you this sort of dark and dangerous look that might go well on the jacket of a spy thriller someday...

Saying it's dire has become a defense mechanism, because people generally inform me that I look like I'm about to bite somebody's head off in photos where I'm looking at the camera and not smiling. That's basically my natural, relaxed expression. It's a little distressing to get told out of the blue that what you thought was a neutral expression in fact appears to be the You're One Moment From Death Look.

(Possibly this should give people an idea of what the actual You're One Moment From Death Look looks like.)

Anyway, the light's better on my hair in the first one, but you're right, it's better in general in the second.

I actually didn't think it was all that dire. And if any of your Irish heritage holds true, I'm sure there's no mistaking the actual You're One Moment From Death Look. :)
