horny, Divine Oscillations

(Sometimes I sparkle in the sunlight, when the light catches the tiny fine hairs just right.)

I wonder how many people look at my default userpic and identify the wrong person as being me?

Going into the city later.

Still figuring out the most logical setup for my recycling shenanigans. I'm thinking a blue IKEA bag right in that nook, with 2 paper bags and 1 plastic: 1 for stuff for which I can get deposit, 1 for paper for apartment complex recycle, 1 for plastic for apartment complex recycle.

I have R.E.M. in my head again. ORANGE CRUSH.

Still giggly over the fact that the closest match to my actual skin tone in the way of the strap-ons offered by Good Vibrations is the Tantus Vamp, which is their pale-ivory-and-sparkling (little gold sparkles, rather than little white or rainbow sparkles, I must specify) selection. I'd seen the thing before, on the internet, and howled at the ad copy. Then I saw the thing hanging from the wall in the shop from a distance, identified it as the closest match to my burns-at-a-hint-of-sun foggy-island-and-extreme-northerner complexion (it's lighter than I am, but only slightly, and has the right undertones; the caucasian-tan selections are a few shades off in the other direction but have the wrong undertones). Then I looked closer and saw the sparkles. A tiny bell dinged in my brain. I looked at the tag (and the price). Yes, it was indeed The Vamp. This resulted in me dying of the giggles, and sharing my thoughts on Twilight with the clerk who popped up.

I did not actually get this item. It is, however, on my wish list. (I'm sure you all needed to know that.)

Interesting writing about my day in backwards order.

Just about bedtime! The great thing about doing real-time updates when things are happening, but posting it later, is that you don't have to worry about someone seeing "bedtime" and taking it as license to cause about 8 hours of unchecked mischief.

Brief power outage earlier this morning. My alarm clock squawks when the power goes off or on, I have discovered. Toted UPS over to router, checked email, turned everything off, went back to bed with book until power came back on, turned on light, kept reading for a while.

Much, much, much belatedly, the pun inherent in the naming of Higgs from Girl Genius smacks me in the face. There was a physical recoil as it hit me. Then I cackled extensively.

I now desire a clockwork snake named Mr. Hissyfit. *nods*

And now there is rain and wind.

2:09 PM 2/26/2010
Oh wow, it's kind of pouring. There are many great huge drops falling onto my patio, which is unremarkable until you realize that there is a patio above mine, and most of its rain runs off around the edges. There were just sheets of blowing water on the roof of the building above me on the hill. Trees blowing. Rain audible on the chimney-cap, wind blowing down the flue, and audible down the bathroom vent too.
