I'm going to make an appointment tomorrow to get my hair done again. I'm going to get it more blonde. I like the change. I've had medium/dark hair all my life, I want that change, damn it!
I also went today to buy some better fabric for the Big Bang craft project extravaganza. I'm currently working on a prototype. It's about half done. While I was there, they were having a sale on Chinese brocade. I love fabric (I'm tactile, I like feeling things), so I was powerless against the prettiness. It's black, with blood red flowers (my two favorite colors). I'll find something
to do with it...
Does this happen to you -> You hear two different versions of a song (whether they're remakes, parody songs, whatever), and end up knowing the new version far better than the original? (I don't mean you like the new version, but are unfamiliar with the old version. I mean you're a fan of both songs, but the newer one sticks out more to you)( This happens to me a lot... )
There's others, but I can't remember them right now...
Speaking of singing stuff in the car like a crazy person, my favorite song as of late to sing in the car is Nese's "Superman"
. It's so much fun to rap in Mandarin...
Now understand, this is not a case of me harmlessly singing while driving. Two very important things to know about me are: I drive really fast, and I'm a really aggressive driver. I also listen to music really loudly. So picture this~ I'm driving down the highway, going wicked fast, windows open, music blasting
, possibly having to maneuver between slow drivers, and I'm like, car-dancing. I've got hand motions. I'm also really belting out the lyrics... It's a sight.
However, the ultimate car sing along song is undoubtedly R. Kelly's "Ignition". In college, when it had just come out, whenever it came on when my friend Jess and I were driving, she made me beep the horn when he says "beep beep"... Luckily I went to college in rural Virginia, so there weren't that many people on the road. Especially at midnight, which is usually when were driving
. Fun fact: this song made an appearance in my backpacking trip to Europe. I distinctly remember Lisa and I singing it on the bus in Florence Italy...ALSO!
I was rereading some fanfic, and I don't know what it is about this line, but every single time I read it (and I've reread this fic many many times) I melt in a pile of goo, because OMG SO HOT. "Good. You must understand how utterly foolish it was to come here, believing that you would leave again having shared my bed with me none the wiser. Every inch of your body, Lizzy – your hair, your eyes, your face, your lips, everything beneath – everything you have and that you are, is branded on me just like that. Savvy? Branded on my hands, my mind, my skin, my mouth. And smart as you are, you honestly thought that I couldn’t tell the difference. Me. The man who taught you the meaning of pleasure. The man who made you a woman.
