(*Note: ha, gotchya! Of course I’m not giving up blogging about my hair! Because what else would I blog about? No, seriously?) Well, The Internet has spoken on the important issue of What I Should Do With My Stupid Hair,…

Hair today, possibly gone tomorrow…

The latest installment of The Cold That Won’t Die has left me feeling run-down and miserable, so instead of getting out and about, and clocking up new Random Acts of Stupidity to amaze you with, here’s one from last Saturday…

Two heads are not necessarily better than one

One morning, back when I was a teenager, I woke up with more than the usual amount of heads. There was my original head, of course – the one on my shoulders, that had been there when I went to…

25 Random Things About Me

I’ve been tagged multiple times now on the “25 Random Things About Me” meme that’s been doing the rounds on Facebook lately, and so far I haven’t actually done it because, well, “over-sharing” is my middle name, and seriously, what…

Car Wars III – Return of the Car

Does anyone else ever get that thing where you go somewhere in your car (the local mall, say) and when you come back a couple of hours later, it’s SO COLD both of the locks on your car doors have frozen solid? So…

Things I Bought: January edition

Although I didn’t mention it on this blog (because that would have made it REAL, and, well, I didn’t really want it to be), at the start of this year I realised I’d been just a little bit “spendy” lately,…
