Ugh.  I have two days off, and Kent spent part of yesterday (before he went into work) arguing with whatever Time Warner Cable is now due to their latest corporate merger.  Which means our wifi is borked, and the phone is dead.

The phone being dead for the next two days I can live with.  Go ahead and call, Happy Acres.  It will just ring...and ring...and ring.  Not having Still Fucking Unnamed Laptop inaccessible for two days?  Hope you're prepared to share the desktop for two days, happy boy.

Oh, wait.  I'm calling him Noodle Boy these days.

He's loving his new job (not jealous.  Nope.  Not me).  I may never see homemade pasta again (or pasta of any sort, for that matter.  I can see him getting real sick of noodles real quick.  Kind of like the five year chicken drought when he worked for Ba-Da-Wings), but I love how alive he is now that he feels like he's really back in the kitchen.  I haven't seen him fired up like this since his Flying Burrito days.

That being said, I deserve a cookie for hearing all about the sauces he's learning and the new saute pans they just got and the cheerfully vulgar camaraderie of the kitchen without snapping.  I'm thrilled for ya, babe, but the high point of my day was having my relief show up (only 42 minutes late.  Yes, I keep track) just as Mr. B dropped trou and took a circus elephant-level shit in the middle of the common room, officially making it 2nd shift's problem.

The days leading up to the full moon in the health care industry aren't fun, y'all.  Occasionally entertaining (it's been a good 30 years since a guy tried to be sexy by sticking his tongue in my ear.  Didn't expect it from a 90 year old man while I was bending down to zip his fly after changing him.  Don't think THIS was what Iggy was talking about.  Or I might be wrong.  Who knows?), but not fun.

I'm never going to be able to leave this job.  Damnit.  When I woke up at stupidthirty this morning, one of my first thoughts (after I wondered if it is okay to finish the beer you abandoned when you went to bed.  No one likes a quitter, right?) was that it's B's shower day, and she gets hysterical if she doesn't have her blue towel and HATES getting water in her face.

I HAVE TWO FUCKING DAYS OFF AND THIS IS WHAT I'M OBSESSING OVER!!!!!

Argh.

Kinda regretting not getting the dye for my hair when I went to the store yesterday.  Today would be perfect for putting noxious chemicals on my head, wrapping it up in a Walgreens bag, and sitting outside and reading for a half hour.  The problem is that I am STILL waffling between staying with my Deep Velvet Violet (a fan favorite) and that Dark Blue Denim that I'm not entirely sure would go with my complexion.  I'm tempted to try the latter, but I don't want to look ghastly when I go see Alan Cumming (16 days!!!!).

Yeah.  I know.  I have a rich fantasy life, and I want to look good for a married bi man.  And, ya know, the bi man I'm married to. ;)

Good luck with the hair and the two days off. I'm sure you will figure out something to do with them besides obsessing...

One of my favorite residents suggested naked leap frog.

Have I mentioned recently that I love my residents?

Brilliant! Just because you're old, it doesn't mean you can't still have fun! :D

I almost coughed up my salad from laughing when I read that.

I hope you have a good two days off!

Talking about dodging the bullet where you got off in time before that guy took a massive shit

Normally, I will stay and help with cleanup. This time? I had five changes BEFORE BREAKFAST (thanks, third shift) and an aide who always needs help with her resident. And got bit by Miz G.

Y'all have fun.

It was a fucking zoo in there yesterday. And it is spring and the hormones are running wild.

Someone needs to make me a shirt that says "PLEASE don't do that in the common room."

How about Deep Velvet Violet framing your face and on the top layer of your hair, and Dark Blue Denim underneath? That way you avoid the complexion question and get to do a test run with the blue. Also I think the blue peeking out from under the violet when you turn your head would look really awesome.

Huh. I like that idea. Not sure how to make that work as a self dye project, though.

I'd do a test chunk first, with the blue, to see if it's going to bleed for a couple of days (and to make sure I really like it). Then I'd section the part I want violet and pull it up into a high bun, cover it with a bag or cap, and do the blue first. If it needs a day or two to stop bleeding, I'd wait that long and then re-section my hair, cover the blue, and do the violet. Since the violet's the top color and the blue is supposed to be the under color, I wouldn't worry as much about the violet bleeding.

There are lots of videos about it on youtube, most with really obnoxious music. Luckily there's no commentary on most of them so you can just mute the tab. :) I want to see pics if you decide to try this!

I dye my hair the same way. Shopping bags come in handy.
