This morning I had the most amazing bedhead I have had in weeks. Usually I wake up and my hair doesn't look much different than it does when brushed, but today it was completely out of control. The part was on the wrong side, I had serious volume, and tousled does not even begin to cover the state of my locks.

([ profile] aesiron, I hope this contents you.)

Also, I found this 1860s spencer on Ravelry today, and I want it. (Flickr link) I'm beginning to think that entering into Civil War reenactment is becoming an inevitability.

Another boring evening in the house, because I'm still not cleared to work outside. Not until my phlegminess is gone.

OK, so I'm kind of bored with the whole "This is my face! Look at my face!" thing already, so there will be many instances of interesting hats and weird hair in the next year. This is only the tip of the iceberg, flist o' mine.

And I would like to tell you all that Curious George is much shorter in person, though his drinking has gotten worse.

So, I finished recovering my desk chair. It was icky and black and cheap-looking, but now it's teal brocade and cheap-looking. Ha! I got it four years ago at Wal-Mart, which should speak to you of its quality. The plastic and everything else has held up fine, but the padding on the seat was basically gone, and the fabric on it was all pilly. So I grabbed some fabric from le stash, the remainder of a bag of poly filling, and a staple gun.

The result (2 pics) )

The fabric is this weird, sort of iridescent teal and gold brocade. It's vintage -- probably from the '50s or '60s, and is a heavy cotton. I bought it originally thinking I could use it for a set of Elizabethan bodies, but the brocade pattern is just too modern, and the fabric isn't right for that kind of stress. So now it's my desk chair.

I think it's an improvement. It's at least more comfortable to sit on. And it matches my bedspread! Now to get rid of the duck blind curtains . . .

Also, a quiz found on the internets. Whether or not I am actually realistic is still questionable, but apparently my liberalism is reasonable.

My Liberal Identity:

You are a Reality-Based Intellectualist, also known as the liberal elite. You are a proud member of what’s known as the reality-based community, where science, reason, and non-Jesus-based thought reign supreme.
