...: doing a Facebook status style blog post. As in, on Facebook, you put in what you're doing at the moment so everything is "Natalie is:"
Actually you don't have to have the "is" in there...but it has to be in third person at any rate. (However, I tend to switch to first person half-way through what I'm writing if it's more than one sentence.) So...
: is not happy with the new Facebook layout!!! I don't think anyone is, actually. They changed it once before, not long after I signed up, and while it really bugged me for a while, it was well-designed and I got used to it. I may get used to this too, but well-designed it is not. At all.
: is trying to grow her hair out long again. I had it long before...I know for my 16th birthday it was about half-way down my back. Now I'm wishing it was long again so I'd be able to properly braid it and stuff like that. I want it to be long, but with some layers in it, so that it doesn't just look stringy and flat like it did last time it was long. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any way to get your hair to grow faster, and it supposedly only grows approx. 6 inches a year. At that rate it will be half-way down my back by this time next year. :( Ah well. Anyone know how to get your hair to grow faster?
: is temporarily a red-head...slightly. I had the leftovers of some temporary haircolor mousse stuff, so I put it on my hair yesterday. It's not terribly red, but rather red-tinted...in time for St. Patrick's Day! You know, looking Irish and all...
Here you can sort of see the red color...and the short little braid I can get my hair to stay in now. :P
: is wishing for warmer, dryer weather. Thankfully, it's supposed to be warmer and partly-cloudy tomorrow, and getting better through the week.
: is silently complaining about wisdom teeth and feeling slightly sorry for herself. Over the weekend either from eating something sharp, or yawning too much, or something, I managed to injure my mouth, back in the back where it's apparently still not very strong after getting my wisdom teeth out. So I just took an Advil and am holding a heating pad on my jaw and moping. :(
: is knitting a scarf out of some random bright pink yarn. I got it at a garage sale or Goodwill, and there's just enough for a lacy scarf. It's this pattern, and I'll get a picture of the scarf when I'm a little further along. I've only got a few inches right now.
: made bagels last week! I'm so glad I tried it too...bagels are so yummy, and they're even better made at home. Next thing I need to try is making english muffins because I like those a lot too. I used this recipe for the bagels, added 2 t. cinnamon to the dough, and put a cinnamon streusel topping on them. Mmm...
: is thrilled to have figured out how to use the built-in spell-check in Firefox. I knew it underlined words with red if they were spelled wrong, but I didn't know that if you right-click on the word it gives you options for the proper spelling.
: has no more to say right now and is considering taking a real short nap.
