and a very good morning indeed, it is

I just chopped all of my hair off, a la' Winona Ryder in the 90s. Can't seem to stop cutting it, apparently.
Thank you, voters. I love waking up to great news.
It's easy to admit I am a bit of an intense girl. I like concentrated things -- guttural yellow leather, really pulp-y orange juice, bold words and too much eye contact -- and sometimes the things I want aren't the things I need. I think of what it would mean to get everything I want in life, and what more it would mean to change my ideas of what I want as each day passes and i grow older. Sounds are like textures for me. abrasive, lulling and soft, comforting and itchy. I can feel sound. I can feel color.

I'm getting a new tattoo, in seventeen days. It's pink and fabulous and Junko Mizuno-tastic.

I miss you.

Niles found a new home, today. I'm pretty depressed about it.
Bright spot: my job offers 'incentive pay' in increments of $75, $150, and $250, depending on how your scores are on the floor-- I made the $250 mark, making my paycheck almost a grand. So... that's nice.
I bought vintage, rust-colored cowboy boots and a huge, delicious salad.
That is all.

I'd like a camera.

We made vegan breakfast sandwiches, this morning. Now, I'm playing Devil Summoner and drinking Perrier.
I have two, large cuts on my palm from a rabbit kick, and they keep re-opening on my steering wheel. One of them could probably use a bandage, but there you are, then.
I have fourteen, soft cotton mini-dresses to wear with my black tights, and nineteen pairs of long earrings. Perfect.
