- return of the godawful anus demons but it was a small attack.
- i got pink-eye.
- i broke out in nasty zits.
- i slept weird on my pillow which resulted in my earring being bent a strange way and then it got infected.
- i got my period - thankfully it lasted only 3 days
- ...but then as soon as my vagina stopped bleeding, i got a fucking yeast infection.
- i got strep throat
- ...which moved into my chest and then i developed a wicked cough and chest pains
- i burned my arm on the fucking oven.
tell me god, what did i do to wrong you?!
anyhow, i'm glad to say that eveything is back to normal....now onto the fun stuff.
do any of you know what a sock bun is? i didn't until saturday when bestie's wife melted my face by showing me how she uses a sock to put her hair up in a bun:
in the history of my unruly hair, i've never ever been successful in getting my hair to stay in a pretty bun. my hair is way too long and so frigging heavy that just short of using rubber cement, nothing would hold my hair up without giving me a wicked headache...until the sock bun. you don't need any pins either!
as soon as i got home frome bestie's house, i ran upstairs and grabbed an old dress sock, cut off the toe part, rolled it into a disc (top two photos) and rolled my hair into it. it took me a few tries and i'm still getting the hang of it but it totally works. and the best part is that you don't even need to secure it to your head with pins - it just stays put!
