Just say thank you.

I need to get out of the habit of staying up until five in the morning before I start working again.

NOT WORKING IS AMAZING. I wish I could do it all the time and somehow not fall into financial disrepair. FUCK YOU, MONEY, YOU AND YOUR "NECESSITY". It's getting lame, and you should really cut it out.

On the other hand, I am SUPER PUMPED to FINALLY have a job where I can fuck around with my hair. I'm gonna dye it pink once I feel I've worked there long enough to prove I'm not a ruckus causing hoodlum (I'm thinking two weeks in). Years and years ago, I desperately wanted to do stuff like on this site, but now I'm thinking it would be a lot of hassle and money for something that I'd get bored with in a week. But maybe dying it will put the fire for fanciful hair back in my belly. It does take a shitload of time to do, though, and I'm OH SO LAZY. I remember doing syntheticjesso's hair in braids, it would take us anywhere from ten to twenty hours to put that shit in.

BUT ON THE OTHER HAND SHE SO OWES ME FOR THOSE HOURS OF AWESOME HAIR EFFORT. What say you, Jesso, shall we boldly attempt to braid my hair one of these days?

I REEEEEEEEEEALLY like the stuff like this, but finding two-toned hair extensions in colors like that is REALLY REALLY HARD. (Although upon further inspection, it looks like they may have just layered the braids so that they LOOK two-toned.) Mostly, I like that braided-on-top, loose-on-bottom effect. Maybe what I'll do is dye the bottom half of my hair pink, then once it starts to fade, cut it off and throw in some extensions like that, just for fun.

OH MAN NOW I AM GETTING SUPER EXCITED. I had all but given up on the idea of EVER getting to have hair like this, ever since it struck my fancy as a wee seventeen-year-old. The closest I got was putting my hair in braids for prom*. Nolan did not allow for un-naturally colored hair (although my good rep with the deans allowed me to keep my braids, they even quite liked them :), Subway did not allow for un-naturally colored hair, the Y did not allow it, and Alamo Door DEFINITELY didn't allow it. So now that I have a job where I'll finally be allowed to play with my hair...

...I am almost in a state of infinite shock.

I don't know what to do with the freedom.

MAN, THIS JOB COULD INVOLVE SUCKING THE SOULS OUT OF BABIES THROUGH THEIR EARS AND I WOULDN'T CARE. I AM SO EXCITED TO FINALLY GET TO EXPERIMENT WITH MY HAIR, OH MAN OH MAN OH MAN.

The

End.

WHOOT, new writing project

Okay, I've been tossing around the idea of creating livejournals for the characters from my trilogy, and I finally decided last night to just go ahead and do it. It will be a fun way to keep in touch with the characters, keep writing without having to worry about writing any actual stories, and a good way to just be generally silly.

I'm working right now on fixing up all their settings and profile pages, but here's the thing: None of them have icons.

I can't really decide what icons would be appropriate for them, so if any of you crazy icon makers out there who have read the books want to take a bash at making at least one icon for the dudes, it would be really cool. (I'm looking at Nikki, and MAYBE Sammy-Joe if she ever got around to reading them :)

For the record, here are their journals (NOW WITH POSTS):

Joey Spicklespackle - pancakehero (spackattack was TAKEN, I hated everything for a while, but then I thought of pancakehero and it was so hilarious and arbitrary that I HAD to go with it.)

Sarah "Goatsie" Pumpernickle Flankenburg - sflankenburg (Goatsie's not that creative.)

Sam Michael Beauregard Drizt - driztisthebizt (Because, I mean, HE IS.)

Samantha Elbe Markovian Lizard the Great Witch of Some Small Town North of Albuquerque - flamingevil (I can't believe this wasn't taken already. I also find it infinitely hilarious, possibly more hilarious than pancakehero, and I'm not quite sure why.)
