Have just made an horrific discovery re: the honorary society in my previous entry ("I've just been asked to join STD?").

Have also done hair differently today. It's curly and shoulder-length, so usually I let it air-dry, spray it up a little, and blow-dry it for a couple of minutes. Today I sprayed it when I first got out of the shower, just for kicks, and... now I have Huge Hair. El pelo gigantesco. The Hair That Ate Cheboygan. I'm talking Roseanne Roseannadanna here. It enters the room before I do, and drifts around my head like a particularly enthusiastic cloud. It's awesome. I haven't had hair this fun since Della gave me Tamora, Queen of the Goths hair. (No, really, she did--combine that picture with the braids/twists in this one, and you've got it. I looked like a Rastafarian stegosaurus. If it hadn't hurt like hell, it would have been the most awesome hair I have ever had. I have a picture of it that I'll have to dig up.)

So. Me and the cheveux aux nuages are going to Grandma's this afternoon for the Happy Mommy Birthday Roulage. Actually, it's both Mommy's and Aunt Awesome's birthday, or was on Wednesday--they were born exactly five years apart. It's freakish. And not only that, but my sister and I were born seven years and three days apart. And Vladimir's Mommy and the Lovely Emily's Mommy both have the same birthday as my mother and aunt. February 18 is like this freakish nexus of mommy birthdays.

Shit, are the Screen Actors Guild Awards tonight? I am horribly behind on awards season.

Vladimir is high as a kite completely giddy right now--I think he just broke out the Bailey's. He deserves it, though--he's liberally plagiarized my last entry about The Hair That Ate Cheboygan for his latest entry in the new work-in-progress over at nevenpezdec. Basically, it's a novel written in real time.

Cleolinda: would you call your enterprise a Livenovel?

Vladimir: I'm calling it - well, hey, that's a good name for it
Vladimir: (tipsying self up)

Cleolinda: when it becomes a huge literary trend, I want it noted that I coined the term.

I highly suggest you go read it while there's only four or five entries and the bizarro stuff has only started to happen. Also, "Linda" started out as my namesake (Cleo...linda), but is really, totally nothing like me now. Particularly in the redness of her hair, in which I am much of the envy.



Vladimir: but you just got invited to join http://www.english.org and I'm totally flabbergasted

Cleolinda: eh

Vladimir: allow me to extend my sincerest congratulations, milady

Cleolinda: I wasn't invited in college, and was very disappointed
Cleolinda: and then I remembered I was a Spanish major

Vladimir: but you are invited now!
Vladimir: yes, I was a Spanish colonel once, in Galithia, it was v. difficult

Cleolinda: ...

Vladimir Cvetkovic: but we shouldn't spent too much time on wartime remembrances
Vladimir Cvetkovic: :D

Cleolinda: you
Cleolinda: are
Cleolinda: so
Cleolinda: high
