Mad Scientess Jane Expat
I forgot to mention that I removed all synthetic extensions from my hair last week. I've gone all natural, baby.


Fuck the internet. Fuck it in the ear.


You rarely get out what you put into this medium. I seem to be constitutionally incapable of retaining this lesson.


Wassup, baby. I'll hook you up. Thass right.


It's the Puerto Rican Love Machine.

Thank you. I like it this length. Particularly because it doesn't take an entire day to wash, dry and roll.

Ergh. Yeah.

The hair looks good.

Teh int4rwebs do have a propensity to suck. It's that world-wide aspect.

But it also has webcomics with chocolate sprinkles of rage.

Of course. The definition of internets has a picture of a crack-pipe next to it.

You are teh hott. Marco is teh hott. Together, you become the forces of intarweb ear-buggery. A force to be reckoned with, indeed.

It is time for the intardnet to get what's coming to it. Wonder Twin powers, activate!

How do you guys activate your powers?? I mean, Care Bear Stare, Power Rangers group hug, He-Man lightning bolt?
I'm thinking that it has something to do with your heads, between that paper crown and your dreads. Did the paper crown come out of a cracker? Because if so, clearly the two of you should carry christmas crackers at all times, ones that send up a diversionary smoke screen...

It did come out of a cracker. Have you seen the size of British Christmas crackers?! If I were to carry one around with me, I'd probably feel really safe. I'd be armed!

I have not seen their size, but perhaps we'll make you a cracker-holster, which you can access with all the ease of legolas oliphant-hopping.

The Internet is just a vast conspiracy by The Man to get us to stay in our houses and away from those dangerous l337 creatures who seek to torture us with their bad grammar and sharp pointy fangs of stupidity.

Marco looks fabulous in his paisley shirt. You look fabulous in your I-will-run-a-rake-over-the-eyes-of-the-Internet pose. Or, as they would say in New Zealand, febulous. Hmm. I'm off to find another word to torture with excessive use.

Or else I'm just cranky because I'm starting to feel...</i>housewifely</i>. I mean, shopping for my SO's co-worker's Christmas presents? Yeah. I think I need to get a job sooner than I was planning.

Ninja. Solely because of the opportunity to stab often and mightily.

That would definitely bring on the crazy.

Wait until the holidaze are over, obviously. Decide what work you could tolerate. Getting out of the housewife rut won't be any good if you get into a stabbiness-inducing environment anyhow.

And lo, though the internet did suck overall, it came to pass that there were amusing icons, and small pockets of clever people to make it worthwhile.

::evil grin::

But, alas, when the day of the final battle for dominion over the intardnets came, the small, roving bands of clever people were not united, so they were defeated by the homogeneous hordes and none were left to tell their tales.

By the way, that paper hat he's wearing? Quintessential British office X-mas party attire. It's great when a whole bunch of them get on the tube or the bus, looking slightly embarrassed.

Fabulous. That is an image I will cherish.

Also! I got your letter (thank you!)... but no postcard. Did you mention a post card or was I hallucinating? I would not put the hallucinations past me these days actually.

Yes, there was a postcard from Windsor Castle. I believe I mailed the postcard before the letter, too. I'm finding the international postal system to be most unreliable. Grrr.

One point in favor of the international postal system, check.

It's a fantastic place. When are you visiting, again? (No pressure.)

Your dreads are so much less lumpy than mine. I suppose it would have helped if I had ever palm-rolled mine after the first couple months.

They have some unevenness in places. I don't know about you, but I found that the hairpolice dread maintenance method did more to mess up the dread growth than it did to help it. The section of hair below the string would end up not dreading properly and it took a lot of work (palm-rolling, wax) to fix it. I much prefer letting them grow out naturally now. I don't think I'd have a maintenance done again. I might get colored synth extenders again at some point, since the synth hair gets braided around the existing dread and tied farther down. Those don't seem to screw up natural growth.
