I had wanted the front to be short, tapering to the back, but i misunderstood a question and ended up with the front longer than the back -- essentially the reverse of what i had wanted. This has been bothering me and i was considering having Ria fix it (also tempted to just hack it myself, as i was when i was feeling really sick of my shoulder-length hair), but i just realized that i can tuck it behind my ears and it looks super-cute. This also makes me feel better about the fact that because my hair doesn't have all that much body, the cut in general looks not quite as good as i had envisioned. As i was getting distressed about the haircut i was getting anxious about tomorrow's highlights, but feeling better about the cut has made me feel better about the whole thing. Part of it is definitely that i've never colored my hair before. It grows out, i know (and i want photos taken, because it will be 2 months grown out before i see my Norwood people, not to mention my long-distance people who never see me) and they're professionals and i want this and yeah... shutting up now. Will report back tomorrow.
I like that our kitchen staff knows us and talks to us in Chase. This was the other happy thing i forgot to mention today. That and the fact that i played a round of 9-ball for the first time and heart it muchly (this is because i did well, which was likely just luck) and i really like Leah in my pool class. Also, i'm definitely still working on basic skills, and i really appreciate in general how good people are about that, being helpful and laid-back and just so very good.
I am making myself finish my thank you notes tonight, because this morning i said i would.
Next new Angel (5.09, "Harm's Way") is next Wednesday.
Oh, and have been playing with icon-making in Photoshop. What's that font that everyone uses in solid legible capital letter writing on fonts? And how do you tweak an animated icon to make it fit LJ's 40k limit?
