Y'all, I discovered something today that blew my mind. I'd been suspecting it for a while now--you see yourself in the mirror every day, it's kind of hard not to--but I thought maybe I was just imagining it. So today, my mother and I were looking at the new Sephora catalogue that came in the mail, discussing various eyeshadow colors, and she stopped and said, "What color are your eyes?"
"See, that's what I was going to ask you," I said, taking off my glasses. "What color ARE they?"
She peered into my face and told me to look up, into the light. "I think... I think they're green?"
"I KNEW IT!"
BLUE, it says on my birth certificate. BLUE, it says on my driver's not-license. For nearly thirty years I have been Female, Brown Hair, Blue Eyes, and now, over the course of the last couple of years, I have changed. I've been noticing it for a while, like I said. I thought I was crazy; I thought the light in the bathroom was bad. BUT NO. MY EYES ARE GREEN. I CANNOT DECIDE IF THIS IS GOOD OR BAD.
(So... now I've got green eyes and grey hairs. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, I guess.)
Meanwhile! The Tonner Narnia dolls are back up again! And I think they've changed Susan's face! For the better.
(Coronation Susan's the one I want, but I checked with the girls, of course. They are interested in nothing but Twilight dolls these days, sadly. Anna could barely muster a "Hold out for one with the bow and arrows," and Eowyn dismissed the male Pevensies with a wave of her hand: "Yeah, those boys were fine in the movies. But that jailbait right there is not quality enough to risk Chris Hansen knocking on my door." Purple Arwen couldn't even manage that much: "Call me when Caspian shows up." I should have known she'd hold out for the exiled king.)
Also! Thanks from heyorion for y'all helping out with the synesthesia project.
