I don't know how or when, but I've lost another contact. Great. I've only had these for a year. I got up, went to the bathroom, put in my contacts, made coffee, fed the cats, fetched the newspaper, sat down with it, and found I couldn't read it. Checked in the mirror and sure enough, no contact in my right eye. Retraced my steps, scouring the floor -- nothing. I've ordered a replacement, but it'll take about a week before it's here. Blasted thing, where can it have got to?

I got up early because I had to go to the hairdresser's. The girl turned out to be a perfectionist and took her time, but the result is worth it; for once, I'm not mourning the loss of my tresses. It's a good deal shorter now, which means my curls have all come back, and she's finished it off with some copper highlights in amongst the dark purplish red of my home dye job. It's looking very good, if I may say so myself.

I stopped by the book shop to get some tomes full of tips on assessments and job interviews, because I've decided there's too much at stake now than to trust in my usual technique of just winging it. And as it's been 10 years since I've successfully applied for anything, I figured I could use some help. So, if any of you have any helpful hints you feel you might want to bestow: be my guest! Virtual beer and chocolate all round when I land this job!

And since having heard it for the first time on TotP last night, I just can't seem to get Gwen Stefani's Hollerback Girl out of my head. Such a funny song, but -- what's with the bananas?

Use that spiffy new camera to show us your new 'do. It sounds nice. :)

...sorry about your contact, that is why I love the disposables, I've always got a box full lying around.

I fully intended to, but unfortunately, the batteries that came with it turned out to be empty. Grrr.

I don't know how I could have been so careless as to lose yet another contact...it's not as if these things don't cost anything! Besides, I don't know what's wrong withme lately; my first set I managed to hold on to for 10 years! But since then, I keep having to order new ones every 14-24 months, and I don't like it. These disposables, do they come in hard, gas-permeable ones too?
