Geoffrey dyed my hair this afternoon. It’s red!

It’s darker than I wanted. I like the red, but I wish it was more blonde-ish-y golden. Can I re-dye it real soon? Like… tomorrow? Will it get lighter? Any hair dying gals out there in the know?

I’m going to start investing. Anyone have any good advice other than a 401k, ‘cause that’s as far as I can go myself.

Today, at work, I spent hours...

catching up on my correspondence.

reading about succulents and ways to make my African violet bloom.

researching 3 foot long pink worms that smell like lilacs.

printing off sudoku puzzles and creating my own sudoku book ranging from easy puzzles to fucking-hell-go-eat-pudding puzzles.

After work I expected some serious yay-like family time, only to discover that the family was off having a life and I was left bored. as. dirt.

I miss my boyfriend.

I think I might have a slightly unhealthy obsession.

Whenever I get upset I buy a new plant. I can’t help it. I bought one when Geoff left for Singapore, and I just bought two more yesterday after I got hollered at by a psycho while I was at work. A psycho who was severely in need of drug induced coma-like help.

And a tiny snail I found while I was outside potting these things. It was as big around as the “o” in “QUARTER DOLLAR” that’s stamped on the back of a quarter.

Today, a Chinese man came up to me at work and said, "you very beautiful".

I said "thank you" and giggled and we grinned at each other. When I asked him about his day he put his hands up and shook his head. "No english. No english. You very beautiful".

I gave him my understanding nod then a thank you nod and then a goodbye nod. He did the same. There is so much you can say by bobbing your head and smiling. It was very sweet.

I'd like to learn a nice and simple little line in a couple of other languages. Nothing that will get me beaten up or killed, though. That would be bad.
