Productivity.

Went home to visit the folks for the 3 day weekend. Was going to sit on my ass and read manga and drink beer. Instead I managed somehow to work all 3 of those days planting the vegetable/herb garden, weeding it, weeding flower beds, putting in brick edgings to the beds, planting a bunch of perennials, and single-handedly moving about a ton of mulch, shovel by shovel.

And I ain't even tired.

My ass and back kinda hurts from all that shoveling though. But that means I did it right. |:>

If I pull my hair back and don't wear make-up or glasses, I get called "ma'am". If I do wear make-up and glasses and leave my hair down? "Miss". It never fails.

Hmm, interesting.

Because of Japanese etiquette, I only really get "okyakusama" (or "guest/visitor/customer") when I go out. I've been referred to as "josei" once. I really have no recollection of what I got in the States, and I was just there in March, so... Hmm. Next time I go back, (Christmas?) I'll have to pay attention.

Due to my current hair color I got called "grandma" the other day... I think its time to dye it again, the blue didn't stick very well and now its a grayish purple with random other colors in patches everywhere.

Well, that was the other thing. I dyed my hair a month ago and last night I had like three coworkers ask me if I'd dyed it. "Uh.....yeah...a month ago...." But I generally wear my hair up, so wearing it down also gets a lot of comments from people about it. "Did you get a haircut?" "I didn't know your hair was that long....." haha

Well they can tell "something is different" with your hair, they just never payed enough attention as to what, so they are probably stumbling around guessing :D

Stretching out while sitting at the desk and looking down and going, "Why hello Left Tricep you're looking rather quite defined today" then looking at the right one and going "Kick it in gear Right Tricep, can't even see any definition on you". Maybe I'll see some in a month once I get further along in P90X and Insanity.

Oh man, I check out my right tricep all the time. I hope my left isn't feeling neglected. It probably is. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Two things today.

1. The smell of the lilac bushes coming in through my window when it's open.

2. "Week 2.5 Face." My skin is pretty predictable; I always know that it's going to fuck me over with at least one pimple at all times. Sometimes there are two or three, but it's usually just one, and just as the first one starts healing, another one always pops up to take its place. However, there is a short golden time about two-and-a-half weeks after my menstruation that my skin is actually clear, and what little red marks might remain are easily covered with makeup. I call this my Week 2.5 Face, and I cross my fingers that all major photogenic events fall in this timeframe. It barely lasts a week - normally only a few days, tops - before my pre-menstrual hormones kick in and fuck shit up on my ugly mug. For those few days, though, I fuckin' feel like Marilyn Monroe. Amazingly, my golden birthday fell during this time. Infuriatingly, no one took pictures. :down:

Curious, are you on BC at all? I'm on a variant of ortho tricyclen for hormone rebalancing, and it's the best my skin has been EVER. I used to have one or two pimples anywhere on my face at any given time, and sometimes elsewhere. I also just saw a picture of me in 2006 and my skin was sooooooo horrid.

Don't have that problem anymore.
