Gen­er­al­ly, things (like this quiz) tend to tick you
off. You have con­tem­plat­ed doing griev­ous
bod­i­ly harm to door-to-door salesmen. 

Which Weird Latin Phrase Are You?
brought to you by Quizil­la

I’m pret­ty! No, I don’t have any pic­tures to prove it. But sam­bear dropped me off at Three313 with orders that the wiz­ards do what­ev­er I want­ed, and that I not be per­mit­ted to know what it cost.

I then asked Rico and Jason to do what­ev­er they liked. I think the hair col­or is called a “splash” something—my nat­ur­al dark col­or with lighter high­lights. They’re clear­ly not nat­ur­al high­lights, nor are they meant to seem nat­ur­al. Jason cut my hair, hmm, about chin length? And put in some lay­ers. I think. 

Then Les­ley did my nails. I haven’t had the gel wrap thing before. She put a tip on the one weird half-nail I have (due to a child­hood injury), but she thinks that she can train it to grow nor­mal­ly. My nails aren’t long YET, but they are strong! I picked a blood-red pol­ish since it’s one of those col­ors I can’t get on by myself with­out look­ing like a hor­ror movie extra.

C.J. “touched up” my make­up. Since there was­n’t real­ly any left at the end of the day, that meant just reap­ply­ing it. Next time I think I’ll tell her to do some­thing I would nev­er think of, instead of assum­ing I want­ed a “nat­ur­al” look. Might find some­thing I like, you know?

She sug­gest­ed a mois­tur­iz­ing masque to wear overnight. I imme­di­ate­ly explained that I’m not going to use any such thing, ever. They make me think of Lucy Ricar­do cov­ered in green goo, which can only lead to twin beds. Hel­lo, do the peo­ple who come up with these treat­ments just not under­stand that the point is NOT to scare one’s part­ner out of the room?

She said she’ll nev­er be able to use or rec­om­mend them again with­out think­ing about that image.

Oh—the traf­fic court judge’s office called. The cop who tick­et­ed me is in Iraq, so he can’t make the April court date. They’re tak­ing it off the cal­en­dar ’til he’s back. It might hap­pen around July. They said they’ll give me at least 30 days’ notice when­ev­er it does hap­pen. I won­der how long it would have to go before it is con­sid­ered not hav­ing a tri­al in a rea­son­able amount of time?
