For a short time yesterday, my hair was an afghan hound instead of a poodle. My hairdresser IRONED my hair! :D When I arrived at gale_storm's afterwards for dinner and crafting, her jaw literally hit the floor when she saw my hair. She made me let her take a picture as proof. Crafting at Gale's was great fun, plus she makes a mean spinach tortellini chicken dish. I feel relatively guilty because I used up ALL her magnets, but I had so much fun doing it and am so happy with the result (plus I paid her for them) that it doesn't bother me too much.

In the middle of the night, Karin came into our room and stood next to my side of the bed and asked me half a question. In the middle of it, she appeared to realize that she didn't recognize me (the hair again) and went around to ask Anders instead. Instead of worrying about the fact that finding a strange woman in her mother's place in bed with her father didn't appear to faze her in the least, I fell back asleep immediately.

Anders just called me on his new Z600. :D
Anders: Hi! Do I sound different? (strange background noises)
Me: You sound like you're sweeping....Are you sweeping?
Anders: *pause* That wasn't the answer I was looking for.
Me: You sound someone really cool with a new Z600 telephone.
Anders: *proudly* Really? Do I? (more strange background noises)
Me: Are you outside? You sound like you're in the middle of a tornado now. Go play with your new phone.
Anders: Productivity really goes down at my company when they hand out new phones. Good thing it's Friday.
