It’s snowing outside, though last night it was sleet first then snow. Still, looking at the little accumulation we have here, it got me thinking about the snow we get now and the snow we got when I was a kid. The snow now may pile up for a day and last another couple, but then it melts right off only to start over again. When I was a kid, I remember snowfalls that dumped a bunch Continue reading

Tax exempt

I’m so depressed right now. I watch a lot of documentaries and tend to watch them on a theme when I can find a lot on the same topic. This weekend, I’ve watched four on homosexual rights–three of which were more specifically about how various religions oppress and bully homosexuals either within their own ranks or in general: Baptists, Jews, and Mormons.

I got my hair cut yesterday (tried to upload pics then but Rantfest was acting wiggy) and donated ten inches of it to Locks of Love. She cut the requisite ten inches off then washed it. After that, she asked me what sort of haircut I wanted, and I told her that she could do whatever because my hair grows really fast. She cut it really short in the back and left it longer on the sides. Then she decided to blow dry it, which I never do because my hair’s simply too thick to blow dry quickly, and while she was doing that, she decided she felt like straightening it–my hair gets pretty curly while it’s drying. I just shrugged and told her that it was fine by me. She straightened it and styled it and seemed really happy to just keep playing with my hair. She probably doesn’t get to do whatever she wants with as much thick hair as I have/had. I think it looks cute, and so does the husband. I might have to consider getting a straightener so I can do this with my hair once in a while. For now though, I’m simply glad to have removed what felt like ten pounds of hair from my head. I’ll use a lot less shampoo and conditioner for a while, that’s for sure.

Final exam

I’m going to be taking my final exam for my library science course soon. After this, I’ll uninstall Firefox and everything related to it because I hate that web browser so much. Opera is far superior to Firefox. And unrelated to my class or Firefox: Happy birthday, Ally and Emmy! I can’t believe they’re 12 today. I remember how little and squeaky they were when I first saw Continue reading
