Woman in Black


I'm so proud of myself, I've been doing so good at updating! And that's kind of sad, because I've really only updated twice consecutively, and THAT's good for me, hohoho.

I cant' remember if I've mentioned this on my blog yet, but that new Woman in Black movie ... is FRIGGIN TERRIFYING. Well, I get scared of movies pretty easily, and I like that, because I like being scared ... it's fun. As long as heights aren't involved. Heights are NOT fun. But man, I loved that movie. Two firsts happened during it for me: 1) I never scream during movies, especially not in the theatre. I think that is so very obnoxious and I can't stand when other people do it, so why would I annoy other people by doing it? But there was one scene that made me utter a sound. Not a scream, but a little squeal. Involuntarily. I felt so embarrassed, ahahahaha. I don't think it was loud enough for other people to hear, but still ... I don't want them to think I'm obnoxious! The second thing that never happens when I watch scary movies, is I'm never scared the second time I watch it. But I took my buddy Jake and his boyfriend Chase to see it, and they spent the whole time with their eyes closed, and I was almost as terrified that time as I was the first time I watched it!

The direction I thought was quite well done, they managed to always have something in the background that tricked you into thinking there was something behind him, so you stayed in such suspense. Or at least I did. I thought that was really cool. Speaking of him, Daniel Radcliffe is unfortunately going to eternally be a teenager in my eyes. Just like Dakota Fanning (who is still seven years old) or the Hilary Duff. I couldn't believe that he was supposed to be a grown up father in this movie. He did a great job, but it's just ... thanks to many years of loving Harry Potter, I'm stuck like this.

Whatever, if Daniel Radcliffe is forever going to be type cast because of Harry Potter, I don't think that's a bad thing. He made a mofo fortune doing Harry Potter. He probably never has to be cast again even.

Today I changed my hair ... again. But now, I'm going to keep it the same for a while. Let it grow so I can start all over.

I did my roots, which were amazingly almost a whole half an inch long after just over 2 weeks since I last coloured! I don't know if it's just because my roots are SO BLONDE compared to the black, but at least I know now for sure that my hair IS growing (unlike with the platinum, unfortunately). We bleached my bangs as well, so I could make them pink, but since I've put black over black over black on them for so long, it didn't go so well. My roots look wicked though!

I went out into the sun to try and show how bright the pink could be. Also, how bright my skin could be.

Then I went and got my nails did, hot pink and purple for Valentine's ... though I have to file them still. My nail girl does a fantastic job every time, but she never manages to get them pointy enough. And filing takes sooooo long, so I at least just let her slim them down, then I do the rest.

Alex and I went to Michael's to wander around, I wanted to find a cross-stitch pattern to do but there was nothing that interesting to me. But we found this book full of the craziest colour-by-numbers I have ever seen. You pretty much can't tell what they are until you colour them. I'm sure it must have been interesting to see a "grown-up" couple go up to the till and buy a colouring book and Kinder-Surprises (they had some sitting by the counter and that chocolate is so gross, it's delicious! Upon opening them we discovered that the toys are way more intense too!!). But we know we're cool. I coloured one of the colour-by-numbers, and it turned out to be a gay pride tiger.


Well, time for me to go to bed early ... I have a sore throat and just an all over cold-ish feeling, and colds SUCK so good night and good riddance!

Ahh, it's so nice to come home and it's clean. Last night I did a hardcore kitchen clean because I was bored and I felt like the kitchen needed a hardcore clean. And now I feel like it's time to do the bathroom, because I do the bathroom every Sunday and I didn't last night ... ALSO I forgot about the birds yesterday so I need to do the cage as well. Work is never done ... but at least my life is not boring.

They're so stupid. I love them ever so.

OKAY funny story of the day. I met the oddest kid today. Oddest? is that a word? Anyway, if it's not a word, it is now because I said so. So this fourteen-year-od came in with his mom and he was being a little SNOT to her, I can't believe that his mom was letting him get his hair coloured even though he was being such a brat. So I took him and sat him in my chair and asked what he wanted, and he said, "Just cut it. And straighten it."

So I said, "Cool, and you want a colour as well right? What colour would you like?" He asked for bright red. So I went and mixed the colour and began applying it, being rather sloppy because during the consultation he said other downright snotty things and he was just being extremely rude. Nevertheless, I decided I would at least try to make coversation. So I asked why he wanted bright red hair.

"Because it's the colour of blood."

And I just laughed. What else could I do? It was funny. Obviously, this whole time, this kid has just been trying to shock me. My friend, I have eight piercings and pink and blue hair, no eyebrows and black makeup. You think you can shock me? Now that I had caught on, I knew exactly what to do to connect with this kid. All I had to do was ask him what kind of music he was into (heavy metal, duh), and then I said "You seem pretty artistic too, are you?" and BOOM he started chatting with me and by the end of it I got a ton of smiles out of him.

His favourite movie was Hostel ... and apparently he liked to paint scenes of death and ill people and bleeding people ...

What a funny, funny kid. He was super friendly and everything, but he was trying so hard, hahaha. He's from out of town but I would be so thrilled if he came back to me one day (lots of his family live here). He says next time we'll do lime green.

Then I came home and painted Homer. My parents got him for Alex but he was just sitting there and I thought he would look so much better with colour. And he DOES. Now we just need some chia seeds so we can grow him some hair. I think he looks friggin' hilarious.

I want to stop disappearing.

I know I've said this a thousand and eleven times at least, but I think I'll make it this time ...

I really really, genuinely want to write on here EVERY SINGLE DAY. I've done it before; I have journals that I wrote in every single day for two and a half years and I absolutely love looking back on them. The reason I switched to BlogSpot was because whenever I wrote on paper, I would have to go on my computer and print off and cut out pictures and then I would actually glue them in there next to the stuff I wrote. It was pretty awesome, and it looks really good, but it was a LOT of WORK. So I figured I would put it ALL on the computer instead. I'm not sure why, but since I started doing that, it just got harder to post every day. Or, more recently, at all. But I've made two New Years' Resolutions this year, which is weird, because I NEVER make New Years' Resolutions because they are bull spit ... but anyway, TWO for this year because I thought it would be a good idea and it is definitely going to make my life better ... in theory ...

NUMBER ONE: I'm going to try and post once a week at least, on Sundays, because the shop is closed on Sundays so I'm basically guarunteed a little bit of free time, so NO excuse.

NUMBER TWO: One of the reasons it's been hard to update is the fact that I can be so cynical and I let things get me down way too much in 2011. And now it's 2012, and if this is going to be my last year on earth, I want it to be the best year of my whole life, gosh darnit! So no more worrying what people think of me, what they say about me, if they don't like me, they don't matter. All I can do about it is ignore and be the best person I can. Easier said than done, so unfortunately lately I have to make a VERY concious effort ... my hope is that it will get easier as the year goes on.

And lastly, I would love to post an updated photo but right now my hair is very very short and I'm having a hard time convincing myself that I'm the least bit photogenic. The story behind this is I had a little too much fun with my head and found my hair fried, so about three weeks ago I cut about half of it off and coloured it black so I could start from scratch and let it grow for a few years. I still have some colour in there of course! But not enough ... I'm adding some more on Tuesday but I'm going to have to be more careful this time and not overdo it!
