Saturday is good.

First things first. Have you read Tavi yet? She's pretty damn awesome. I may not be 100% what the normal people might call 'a fashion icon' myself, but I did totally steal her two-tone tights idea for when I went out for coffee (or tea, in my case) this afternoon. And she's only 13. 13! Gah!

But you should observe the interestingness of my outfit for today. I was (and still am) slightly unsure about the long straight top over a slightly A-line skirt, but I think it worked, as a whole. (Matt was saying "Give me... anger, sweetie!")

The Hair was dyed again this weekend. It really, really needed to be. An inch or so of brown (and grey. *sniffle*) was showing at the roots. Cyber Purple makes it sound a lot more dramatic than the, admittedly rather nice, dark reddish purple that it actually is.

The rug is still making us happy. I keep finding Matt basking on it in the evenings. "What are you doing, sweetheart?" I ask in my kindest wifely voice.
"I am lying on the grass. In the sun."
I think Matt might like it to be Spring now.

In this picture, can you find...
My pair of weird studded boots?
Matt's feet?
A bottle of Appletiser?
A tiny crazy hamster cowering in the corner of her cage?
A box set of Dungeons and Dragons?

And I am currently sitting on the rug. Typing this on my spanking new laptop. Which I can do because, aside from said spanking new laptop, we also purchased a wireless router. It's very exciting because, with two (TWO!) laptops and this new router, we can both be online at the same time. AT THE SAME TIME, Y'ALL!

Ok, ok, fine. Everyone else has been wireless for simply years. But we have now been dragged, kicking and screaming, into the Century of the Fruitbat.

I'd just like to point out that *I* don't have wireless. If I want to go online I sit at the hobbled together computer that Christian made me or if I want a seachange I go into the loungeroom and go on the HTPC. I still think it's slightly odd that for a household with two people we have two normal PCs, the HTPC, my huge, olden day laptop that I use when I want to write my stories but has to be plugged in because the battery is dead and finally Christian's work laptop when he's on call. But they all seem to get used...

And I *love* your outfit, I could never look that good. You just have this awesome sense of style :)

I've been thinking I should dye my hair again but I've been using Pantene on it to stop the breaking and dye just won't hold to it now. It washes out quickly enough as it is, now it'd just wash out overnight *sniff*. And after spending so much time trying to get it healthy I am a little reluctant to strip it before dying it because there would go all the time and effort.
I guess I shall have to stay a kind of reddy tinged brown...

Our house kind of looks like NASA...we have a wireless router, and up to five of us can be online at a time (and frequently are!).

Love the rug, and your outfit is very cute!

In regards to your fashion sense: woohoo!

In regards to wireless: I had functional wireless for the first time for all of about four days, starting around the beginning of this month! Now I have nonfunctional wireless.
