uh, well...

The cord to my digital have sort of, you know. Been put through the washing machine. On accident. I washed my laptop case, since my friends' cats peed on it while I was living there. I thought the bag was empty, but I guess not. I don't know if it still works. Right now the only internet in our house is on Jared's computer, which I don't like using as much as I like using my computer.

Couple of things first: Ms. Pixie Punk asked about the dye used in my profile picture. Yes, it's Punky Color in Green Apple. It's also about a six month old picture. Now, my hair is Flamingo Pink. Same brand. I usually don't go in for product endorsement on my blog, but Punky Color is the. best. freaking hair dye on the planet. I've only had one color fade on me: Lagoon Blue.

Yeah, that wasn't long after I did it that color. I've loved every other color of theirs that I've used, though.

Thing #2:

I got tagged by covered in Yarn for the wonderful "7 random things" meme.

Here's the deal: Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs the 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag 7 others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog.

  • 1. I get antsy when I don't dye my hair. Even with natural colors. I think the longest I've gone without dying it since I was 14 or 15 (that's 8 or 9 years, for those keeping track at home) was 6 months. I also didn't cut it during that time. If was for my high school graduation.

  • 2. I hate having excessive icons on my desktop. It looks cluttered and nasty to me, no matter how I organize them. I have to have about 20 icons on my desktop at work, and it drives me insane. Like, batshit crazy.

  • 3. I've gotten to play with an iPhone several times. I was the biggest hater of the iPhone when they were announced. I certainly didn't want one - until after I played with it. Now I'm dying for one.

  • 4. I get these intense desires to like things that I know I do not like. At all. Such as seafood. And sushi. And mushrooms. And egg. The list goes on. It's like I feel like I'm a horrible person because I don't like these things that everyone else seems to like.

  • 5. Now, some of you know this, some of you don't - I have an addiction to CraigsList. I found my dog, my boyfriend, and one of my first (and closest) local friends on CL. Interesting side note: I met my boyfriend from a Strictly Platonic post I made. Platonic, my ass. But, that's a longer story for another day.

  • 6. I'm incredibly forgiving. Perhaps more than I should be. I have a tendency to forgive friends for doing the shittiest things. It probably says something about my character. Or it might say that I'm just a doormat.

  • 7. My ex-fiancee is my best friend (aside from Jared, naturally). Robert and I share some weird, unusual bond, and have vowed to see each other through everything. This bond took about 4 or 5 years to fully develop, but I'm glad it did.

I'm not tagging anyone in particular. If you want to do this, and you haven't already, by all means - do it. Then leave me a comment or shoot me an email (chemicalpink (at) gmail (dot) com) letting me know you did it. RAWK.

Moving on with my ramblings, I met Jared's parents for the first time Sunday. We drove out to Schulenburg and had lunch with his parents and his two little sisters. His parents were nice, though apparently they weren't feeling well, and I adored his sisters. I always wished I had little sisters when I was a kid, but I was the youngest. So, I'm laying claim to his sisters, hehe. They're 11 and (almost) 13. And adorable, have I mentioned that?

I think that's all my news for now. I'll try to keep it less quiet around here.

Hey, did you wash that cat pee in MY washer??? LOL, JK as Beccano would say.

I hope your cord works. At least they are less expensive than a new camera. My new camera ceased to function.

Glad meeting the parents went well. Having just had my parents meet MY "new" boyfriend, I have sympathy.

i was flamingo punk for a year. then i switched from punky to special effects, the colour is called 'atomic pink'... it's the only one i've ever liked better than punky! (after being a die hard punky girl for a half dozen years or so). special effects 'cupcake pink' is up next, it's a little bit softer. best part is that they're blacklight reactive! that was lots of fun at disneyland this spring. :-)
