Ways I do not know that summer is coming:
Seattle's damnable weather. Aside from one totally unexpected day last weekend, it continues to be low 50s (at best), grey and rainy. Apparently it was even snowing in some areas yesterday. Yuck.

Ways I do know that summer is coming:
First, I can wake up. Even though I'm staying up til midnight or later most nights, I still don't have any problems getting up between 5:30 and 6:30am, and the occasional snooze-buttoning is out of habit rather than necessity and used to lay in bed and think, not trying to wake up. (During the winter, it takes three alarms to wake me, and I snooze-button all three for at least an hour.)

Second, and infinitely more important, I leave on my first vacation of four this summer two weeks from tomorrow. :)

Ok, I really really like these. However, experience says that they will not hold up to my hair - I need either two double-pronged pins, or one pin with 3+ prongs; I can't make two single pins hold it, no matter how cool they are. And even if I could, I would really have a hard time justifying spending $130 on them. :P But a couple of years back, I seem to have lost the hand-carved three-prong pin I got at MRF and wore for pretty much eight years straight, so I've been getting by with scrunchies. Which do the trick, but they are not pretty.

So instead I ordered a pair of double-pronged 6" hairpins carved from shed antler with tulip-wood ends, which are quite lovely.

[10:07] ginger: But dang, it would be fun to be able to pull a pair of tiny swords out of my hair :)
[10:09] ari: I don't know... it's one thing when you whack me when I do something really dumb. Stabbing me would be something else entirely... ;-)
[10:09] ginger: Darling. I do not need tiny swords to stab you.
[10:09] ginger: And really, I just ordered two six-inch-long double-pronged antler pins. You're worried about tiny blunt wooden katanas?
[10:09] ari: Well yeah, there is that. :)

Brief panic, hopefully solved now.

[14:13] ginger: WTF MY NUTRITION INSTRUCTOR JUST TOLD ME I'M NOT IN HER ROLL SHEETS
[14:13] joyce: buh?
[14:13] joyce: how many weeks into the quarter?
[14:14] joyce: WTF?
[14:14] joyce: never mind that you've been turning in work, right?
[14:14] ginger: online services shows that I still am enrolled in all my courses
[14:15] joyce: meh.
[14:15] joyce: with a hearty helping of WTF.
[14:15] ginger: on the phone with registration
[14:15] ginger: WTF REGISTRATION SAYS I HAVE BEEN DROPPED FROM ALL MY CLASSES
[14:16] joyce: uh
[14:16] joyce: *jaw drop*
[14:16] joyce: they happen to tell you WHY?
[14:16] ginger: sec
[14:17] ginger: *breathing again*
[14:17] ginger: her computer hiccuped
[14:18] joyce: oh, good gods.
[14:18] ginger: she restarted the program and it was fine
[14:18] ginger: I'm still enrolled in all four, no holds, tuition's paid and all looks good on the registration end.
[14:18] joyce: she tell you what to do about ms. nutrition thing?
[14:18] ginger: I suspect that the issue is that the distance ed folks effed my name up on my Angel account
[14:18] ginger: Angel shows me as Ginger Lastname [Ed: instead of O'Lastname.]
[14:18] ginger: nobody has ever had a problem with this before
[14:19] joyce: oh.
[14:19] joyce: lord.
[14:19] ginger: but I think she was looking on her roll sheet for Ginger Lastname
[14:19] ginger: which, of course, would not show
[14:19] ginger: so I reminded her of that
[14:20] joyce: i hope it's as simple as that.
[14:21] ginger: feh. me too.

fingercross. :P

So, good news and bad news.

Bad news:
Even though I was super super careful wrapping the ends to keep the dye off them so I could do them red tomorrow, they still picked up dye in the rinsing process. I don't know how well the red will go over the light tealy-purpley-greeny they picked up.

Good news:
Whether I decide to give it a try or not, it still looks EFFING AWESOME. I have midnight-glacier-head.




Pulled up a bit to see the ends -- my arms aren't long enough to get a picture of all of my hair by myself :P
