maaru: (Thinking corner)
A long, long time ago, one of my grand-aunts kidnapped both me and my sister for a trip to the hair salon and curled the hair at the sides of our heads and made us look like a couple of POODLES. My mom thought it was funny. We were probably 5-6 years old, and later on we both swore not to get duped so easily, and always made sure to part our hair asymmetrically to avoid those dreadful memories.

Recently, however, my sister wants a perm - because our naturally straight hair now looks boring next to our mom who, after 40 years of keeping her hair VERY short, decided to grow it out only for us to discover that she has NATURALLY OCCURRING PRINCESS CURLS. You don't even need to style it - just twirl it a bit around your fingers, and it'll put classic shoujo heroines to shame. It made my sister weep with envy.

My own hair, however, has some more complicated issues. Dinner table convo a couple of weeks ago:

Me: I need a new haircut. Preferably another short barber's cut or something.
Mom: NO! I told you to stop cutting your hair like that!
Me: But why? You've always had short hair, but I'm not allowed to? Why do you get so angry?
Mom: That's different! You're... you... end up...
Me: What?
Mom: You look like the teenage version of your dad! *suddenly looks embarrassed*
Me: :|
Mom: :|
Me: u___u

Scene at breakfast this morning:

Sis: I thought we're all gonna clean the house today, where's dad?
Mom: He went jogging.
Sis: Jogging? He hasn't gone out of the bedroom yet, right?
Mom: He went jogging an hour ago... in his dreams.
Us: O_o
Sis: Wow, that's... some distance to cover, eh?
Mom: *peeks into bedroom* Definitely. See, he's covered some distance already, he's managed to roll onto MY side of the bed.
Dad: *SNORE*

Also, at 3 am this morning, I finished my evil fanfic. MWUAAHAHAHAHA. FINALLY. For the 2nd time. And posted! Now I just hope my giftee likes it. Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to keep going, I really appreciated it. :D

and a couple of other random stories where I acquired my new baby, and today's insanity )

And before I forget:

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, FLIST! 

I hope you guys have a great time.
maaru: (why?)
So I spent the last two weeks typing up a Weiss fanfic (for a christmas exchange) while re-organizing my stuff after the JLPT insanity. This week, however, the fanfic gods decided to use me as target practice:

* Monday morning: My 8-year old laptop finally bit the dust. Well, not quite. See, it made a funny buzzing sound, then the backlight burnt out. So she's still actually working, but to see anything, I'd need a flashlight held against the screen in an strange angle. Spent the rest of the day transferring everything onto my Mom's Acer desktop.
If it was that simple, I'd be perfectly fine... )

I'll be back, fanfic gods! *shakes fist*
