happy

"Nonono, haystacks are trendy, dahling!"

Today I'm wearing a headband. It has little skully crossbones on it. It's the only one I own.

The reason I'm wearing a headband is that I have crossed that line - you know the one where your hair's ok, it's ok, it's ok for months, and then suddenly one day you wake up and from there on in, it looks like you've been dragged through a hedge backwards no matter what you do with it? Yeah, that line. *phones for a hair appointment*

In other frivolous girly news, you know that thing about how sharpening eyeliner pencils is easier if you stick them in the freezer first, that it stops that *grind grind grind break damn* cycle? Anyone know if it's actually true?

My dress is nearly finished. It'll be finished tonight. I have learned patience while doing this - it's a very rare occasion when a clothing project takes me more than a week to complete, but with this one, I'm seeing the value in doing a little at a time and doing it really well. Go me.

My wrist is somewhat better. I'm finding avoidance of round doorknobs somewhat difficult, since my bedroom door has one.

Finally, yesterday I got an email from my boss telling me that she finds it a pleasure to work with someone as professional and competent as me. I kid you not, that's what it said. It's going in the "I Rock" file, for reference come performance review time. Meanwhile, it made my day. Recognition is awesome.
