this post has nothing to do with anything

7 Oct

well well well, blogland – it’s been a while, hasn’t it? wanna see what i’ve been up to?

well, firsties… i cut my hair off. and then i dyed it black-brown (clearly, i wanted it to match my soul):
i must say, the partial lack of hair in my life has been awesome. it definitely has more bounce to it and my pincurls actually last all day now. and headbands are pretty much the cutest thing ever on this coif. yay short(er) hair!

my s10 pick-up bit the bullet – hard – and i had to scrap it (the timing belt broke & ripped through the engine, if you’re curious). but it’s ok, because i bought a new truck. meet ruby:
and she has air conditioning! my first air conditioned vehicle in over 6 years yay!

i also made a halloween costume for a friend:
you can read my pattern review here, although there’s not much to say. i used simplicity 2853, with minor modifications. no, i didn’t make the hat. i might have my moments of crazy, but they don’t involve making hats!

i also made this wreath, to put on my front door. talk about a moment of crazy.

oh, wait, i’m supposed to talk about sewing here, huh?
let’s discuss simplicity’s new pattern line. actually, the whole line is really boring & yawn-inducing, let’s talk about 1947 & 1948 instead.
rather, i just want to talk about the guy with the purple hair. what is going on here? he looks like he wants us to believe he is going to beat somebody up (i personally think he would run away crying if you challenged him to a fight.

    I think that simplicity will look back on this as a dark, dark time. I hope.

    Want to know what makes the purple-haired guy even more ridiculous? I’m pretty sure that’s the pattern designer, Suede.

    Also, your hair looks fabulous. Love it.

    I love that “rock” apparently means “look like a giant tool” and I think Mary is right, some guy from project runway?

    I`m going to have nightmares thanks to that purple haired dude. Creepy!

    Cute hair cut for you, however! 🙂

    The purple haired dude is definitely Suede- he is a former project runway contestant and he speaks in thrid person. Hence “suede says” – even scarier! Your hair looks gorgeous by the way!

    I was just at Joann’s yesterday and saw that pattern, *shudder*.
