So, today I got my hair cut! There's good and there's bad in this story.

I thought my appointment was at 1:00, but it was actually at noon. So I got there at 1:00, and the receptionist was really nice, (and I was so embarrassed) but my usual girl was booked solid and couldn't get me in until Wednesday, which I couldn't do. The next available time was next week, which is after I get my hair colored with my cousin, which wouldn't work because of the story I told her about getting my hair cut, blah, blah, blah.

ANYWAY, another girl fit me in. This girl, (and I say girl for a reason) looked like she was in her twenties, and I thought, "Well, okay, I'll suck it up and give it a try." Throughout the cut I realized that, in fact, she was much younger than she appeared. Nineteen, in fact, and FRESH OUT OF COSMETOLOGY SCHOOL.

She didn't do a terrible job or anything, except that the sides are noticeably uneven, which of course I didn't notice while I was there, but now can't stop looking at.

And now I'm going to have to have my cousin (who I didn't want to cut my hair because she hasn't been out of school long) fix it.

IRONICALLY, my cousin has been out longer than the girl who cut my hair today.

The moral of the story? Don't lie. It'll only end up biting you in the ass.

  • Last night I was craving comfort food, so I made this casserole my grandma always used to make where she'd making stuffing and put it in a casserole dish, put unbreaded chicken tenders on top, then cover it with cream of chicken soup and bread crumbs, and it was delicious technology 100%! Also super easy, which I appreciate, since while making this I managed to forget to oil the casserole dish so it wouldn't stick, and also to preheat the oven. I have faith that one day I'll be less of a cooking disaster, but today is not that day.

  • I am fairly confident that my Big Bang is total badfic. Here's a question, actually. Is issue fic ever not badfic? And would attempted suicide qualify as issue fic? Because I think I'm fucked on two levels there.

  • I went to bed last night will all the windows in the house open, because my house stores heat like an oven and it was ridiculously stuffy in the house, and then woke up at 3:00am to pouring rain and it was FREEZING and had to walk through the house closing it up. Not on, weather.

  • Yogurt + fresh strawberries + granola = A++ food combination!

  • I like even numbers, and even though five isn't an even number, it feels like it should be.

    ♥ I am all about love right now. I really do enjoy love memes. For all my bitchiness, I really like having the chance to tell all of you how much I love you.

    ♥ Okay, so I decided to give Leverage a chance, since my flist has exploded with love for it, and I have one question. HOW HAVE I LIVED SO LONG WITHOUT THIS SHOW IN MY LIFE? It's so good! And Voodoo is on it! But he's not a bad guy! It's so awesome! Seriously, I'm in love.

    ♥ We're supposed to get a lot of snow tonight, but it hasn't really started yet. It's been sleeting for a bit, but the roads don't look too bad. I'm actually kind of hoping we get a good amount, because I love snow. I really love the way it looks when you first wake up, and no one has walked over it yet, so it's this perfect world of white. Of course, if I have to drive in it it's another story, but even then I don't mind it too much.

    ♥ My birthday is in a month. I'm going to try and make the last month of my twenties as awesome as possible, because I feel like I wasted the rest of the year. I don't know how I'm going to do this, but it's my new goal.

    ♥ All of you are my favorites tonight. ♥

    I've been watching that show Life, and I really like it. I've been hesitant to watch because Damian Lewis played Winters in Band of Brothers, and I loved him so much that I wasn't sure I wanted to see him in anything else. Which is admittedly ridiculous, so I finally gave in, and I'm really glad I did.

    One last stocking self-pimp.

    It's supposed to rain all day tomorrow. Not snow, rain. Not on, weather. I want a white Christmas, not a wet one.

    I hate it when actors I think are at least a few years older than me turn out to be younger than me.

    This was a whole lot of random.

    I'm getting kind of bitter now. According to the power company website, we're probably not going to be back up until Sunday. I know they're working as hard as they can, but since I've yet to have seen a crew in my entire town, I'm pretty sure they're working hard in other places. I'd feel better if I'd at least seen them working somewhere around here. It doesn't even have to be on my street.

    I went to Panera today to use their wireless so I wouldn't have to steal it, which is both unreliable and leaves me feeling guilty, and for inexplicable reasons, I couldn't get connected. But I did meet a nice looking older man with an accent, so it wasn't a complete loss. Heh.

    Was Supernatural awesome? I'm so jealous of all of you who got to watch it. I just had MCR's cover of "Under Pressure" come on my iPod and immediately after, Keane's cover came on. I think God's trying to tell me something.

    Still stealing internet. I have no idea when we'll be getting our power back. Most of our crews have been sent down to Texas, so they're really short handed. I spent hours at my grandmother's today cleaning up her yard from the storm. She does have power, though, so I was able to recharge my cell and my computer.

    I'm a little bit grumpy and a lot tired. The highest wind from yesterday was clocked at 65mph. That probably seems like nothing to the people who've lived through hurricanes, but it's a hell of a lot for us. This is the biggest power outage in this area like, ever, apparently. Thousands of people have no power. Which, again, is nothing compared to Texas, but it's a big deal here.

    Anyway, I'm getting off here so I can preserve my battery power. I'll be checking my email periodically, so if anyone needs me, feel free to email. Or text, whichever.

    Motherfucking Ike. We got hit with the worst wind storm in my lifetime today and it knocked out the power everywhere. And we're still without power. The people across the street have it, of course, but we don't. I'm stealing their internet in revenge for them having power and us not.

    This is all from that stupid hurricane. We live in Ohio. We're supposed to be safe from this kind of crap. Argh.

    Oh, and my cell phone is dead, so I'm sort of unreachable right now, since my computer's battery is about to die. *sigh*

    Edit: Oh, and in all my bitching about myself, I forgot to mention how lucky we are, because there are actual trees that uprooted in my town and went through people's roofs. My family and I are safe, at least, and I'm grateful for that.

    For all of you on [ profile] ssstevie's flist, she's okay. There were two tornadoes, but they are moving quickly and so far there's been no real damage, just a lot of rain. They lost power and they don't have it back yet, but she seems to be okay as of right now.

    E.T.A. She said the sun is out now, so hopefully that means the worst has passed.

    We had an earthquake at 5:40 this morning. In Ohio. Apparently, it was centered in Indiana, but they felt it in Illinois as well. I, of course, slept right through it. I realize that most people would probably be glad to do so, but since I have no plans of ever moving to California or anywhere on the west coast, this is probably my only earthquake, and frankly, I'm a little disappointed that I didn't wake up for it.

    Of course, right after it I was woken up by my mom going, "Erin, we just had an earthquake!"

    I realize that we've had them before, but it's so rare that I don't even know when the last one was. I think it may have been before I was born, it was so long ago. I feel like California is trying to foist their natural disasters upon us. We've got tornadoes, people. We don't need anymore trouble.

    Fun fact about where I live: There's a town eight miles away from where I live called Xenia, and the worst tornado in the history of America (or maybe the world, I don't know) hit it. It's Xenia's claim to fame. Now see, wasn't that a fun fact?

    I'm maybe in a weird mood today. I think the earthquake that I didn't wake up for has messed with my brain.

    I cannot BELIEVE how much snow we have. And it's still coming! It's snowed for about 30 hours at this point, non-stop. It's really crazy. I have to go out and shovel soon. I'm not looking forward to it.

    Is anyone else having trouble with LJ today? It's taking forever to load, and sometimes it's just flat-out not loading.

    [ profile] halona requested the recipe I was talking about last night, so I'm posting it in case anyone else wants it.

    Chocolate Crazy Cake w/optional Hershey's Icing. )

    FYI, I'm making another boring grammar post later today, as requested.
