Subject:Aaahhh, much better
Time:12:27 am
As you may have guessed from my earlier photo, I've repurpled. It's amazing how much better I feel about the world when my hair is freshly dyed. When she pulls the towel off and the pink and purple comes cascading down, it just feels good. It still irks me that Manic Panic misspells fuchsia though. (Check out their site-- the name of the dye is Fuschia shock.)

While I was getting bleached today, my eyes wandered over to the wall o'product that every salon has. I sort of stared blankly at the panoply of well-presented boxes and bottles, but then one in particular caught my eye. It sais Kinky Chick on the front. "I don't know what that is, and I don't care. I must own it." As it turns out, it's a product of some sort that's designed for taming curly hair. I now own a bottle.

Tonight's new milestone: I saw a feature movie in a theater and had the phone number of one of the actors programmed into my cel phone. That's happened before with a movie I saw on DVD, and with several people on television shows, but I'm pretty sure this is the first time it's ever happened for something I saw in a theater. (Extras don't count.)

For the first time in a while, I'm having a significantly above-expectation month at poker. Hallelujah! I also have about a grand in Onecall gift certificates that I want to use to buy camera gear, but I can't find any gear in that range that I want. The mind boggles.

I bought a new camera bag today. It's a thing of great beauty in that it's not only better for gear than my old camera bag, but it can also carry my laptop. That means I can take both the camera and computer as carryon when I go to Vegas for the next two weekends.

Sounds like life is g00t! Glad to hear it.

Let's see, in SNGs last night, I cashed in one of twelve (a 3rd). The torrent I downloaded to watch was in a different language with no subtitles, and I just cashed in all of my FPPs for cool stuff, all arrived yesterday except for the one I wanted the most, the 8 GB nano.

Oh, and I'm probably going to miss BARGE.

Perhaps I should dye my hair?

Fuchsia huh? I would have been one to spell it the other way. But I also did not research a product line with the name in it.
you learn something new every day, this is it for me!

How to remember: it was named by the German botanist Leonhard Fuchs. I learned that by reading The Orchid Thief.

Enjoy the new camera bag! I only wish I could manage to carry both my laptop and camera and gear in one bag. Ain't no way I could pick such a thing up, though, or drag it around without completely killing myself .
