Concerned.

(But still giggling over "At least it didn't say 'Drive door is open on partition C:\ '!!")

Got call back from Steph; garden-variety crossed-wires. It is tricky to know when JD is speaking for the whole crew and when he is not! My organization-fu skills are currently in the shop for repairs and I did not step forward on this one.

Hair has now dried. Even with the ~2" chopped off, hair is looong. Hair is wavy.

[x] You wear lip gloss.
[ ] You love to shop.
[ ] You wear eyeliner. (Not often enough to count.)
[x] You have some of the same shirts in different colors.
[x] You wear the color pink.
[x] Go to your mom for advice.
[x] You consider cheerleading a sport. (If Parkour is a sport, which I consider it to be, so's the gymnastics kind of cheerleading that's not just waving and yelling.)
[ ] You hate wearing the color black. (lol)
[ ] You like hanging out at the mall.
[ ] You like getting manicures and/or pedicures.
[x] You like wearing jewelry. (but only certain items, constant-wear, not putting it on and taking it off.)
[x] Skirts are a big part of your wardrobe
[ ] Shopping is one of your favorite hobbies.
[ ] You don't like the movie Star Wars.
[ ] You are/were in cheerleading, gymnastics or dance. (One theatre unit on dance does not count as "dance", really. Fencing, baby.)
[ ] It takes you around 1 hour to shower, get dressed, and put on make-up and accessories. (Not for everyday use, not unless I get distracted between shower and clothes.)
[ ] You smile a lot more than you should.
[ ] You have more than 10 pairs of shoes.
[ ] You care about what you look like. (I try and look tidy, and I have figured out a look that is good for me, and I stick to it. I only go above and beyond for a Special Occasion.)
[ ] You like wearing dresses when you can.
[x] You like wearing body spray/perfume/cologne
[x] You wear girl underwear (I hope little girls don't have to wear structural bras like this.)
[x] Used to play with dolls as little kid.
[ ] Like putting make-up on someone else for the joy of it.
[ ] Like taking pictures of yourself with your cell phone/camera when you're bored. (With how often I don't update dailybooth, I would say no.)

"Existential door errors" (drive door of volume c: is open) (This is a thing between the best friend and Kat and me.)
Purple hair problem: "I do not like you because you have purple hair." (But the person is actually a blonde.) It is, I supposed, a variety of existential door error. (This is a Seananism.)

Kat briefly stopped speaking to me when I proposed the concept of "synchronized watersports" (like, you know, *swimming*, she protests innocently) for #dw Olympics.

Found an IKEA string of tiny battery lights, decided that they were going to become part of some interesting steampunk hair accessory. Looked around in accessory closet to find something to pair with it. Found an antique bronze-tone button on a safety pin and an ivory lace sash/scarflet from the fabric-by-the-pound shop back in Phoenix. Gathered the lace on the pin, with the button as a centerpiece. Fixed a hairpin on to clip it to some part of my person, using a spare twist-tie. The little lights don't fit into it anywhere, but it's still very pretty. I can use it either as a token hat (as a woman of European descent, going completely bareheaded in a steampunk scene strikes me as rather more bold than I actually am, not quite to say obscene, but...) or as the female equivalent of the necktie.

I have yet to figure out what, exactly, will get the lights.

Laptop getting backed up, then cleaned.

For reasons that perhaps only [personal profile] lacey will get, this makes me simultaneously hilariously amused and somewhat appalled. http://xkcd.com/711/

Time to start a defrag (and I'm now at 1.35 gig free on the C drive vs. the 200MB) and curl up with a book in bed.

Crossposted. comment count unavailable comments.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
