The Old Spice Guy in Portland?!?

I'm finding that chemistry is beyond fascinating. Today in lab, I got to melt copper in acid, pour water in it to make a beautiful aqua liquid, add another acid to make it smurf blue, boil it until a solid separated from it, add zinc to cause a fantastic release of hydrogen, and ended up with clear liquid and - ta da - copper chunks. Chemical reactions are fun, yo. Learning all about nuclear radiation is fascinating, too. I'm beginning to consider taking the next level up of chemistry, just for shits and giggles.

Received my copy of Office Professional 2010 in the mail today - all mine for just $15 since I'm an employee of OfficeMax.

In other work news, starting on Saturday, we start selling Sprint phones and plans. We only had to rearrange half the store to accommodate the things (thank you again, Kirk and Cassie, for your help) so I'm assuming it's worth it.

In watching a preview for Salt, I'm immediately skeptical on the reality of it after watching her dye her hair black - you NEVER get that smooth of a coverage with one box!!!

Still need to watch the last two episodes of Season Five of Doctor Who. Mebbe I'll do that this weekend. It's kinda nice knowing that there's still two more episodes out there I haven't seen, and sad that there won't be any new ones until December.

Bah.

Sleeping like a brick lately and having SUCH vivid dreams. Dreams of attending fantastic parties and moving giant plaster blue suns from one room to another and knocking things over, of magical color changing hair.

I'm beginning to really miss driving.

There's an abandoned car on the highway on my way to work. You could probably hotwire it and make it all yours.

P.S. gimme office or perish!

I still haven't opened the thing, which is silly. It's like I'm afraid it'll spoil before I need to use it or something.

You never know. It might start a countdown timer for when it'll explode and destroy your OS.

This could have been Microsoft's plan all along!

That and to frustrate every IT professional in the world.

I think I'm in man-love with the old spice guy. If I could choose who to be reincarnated as, it would be him.

Sounds like my girl-crush on Flo, the Progressive spokesperson, but oh so much cooler.

I've gotten pretty awesome coverage with one go of black before, especially if your hair is already brown. BUT my hair is a lot shorter.

I love the Old Spice guy.

I like chem, too.

I was thinking of going red, mayhaps, as an alarming amount of my hairs suddenly seem to be WHITE. Like.... a very alarming. It was as if I hit 35 and my body went "Welp! We're ancient now, might as well throw in the pigment towel!"

Sheesh.

My hair is suuuuper long now, and the idea of having to deal with coloring it and getting a nice coverage makes me whine with laziness. I'm also too poor to pay for a professional job. Maybe if I would just get around to donating my hair like I've planned to for awhile now..

Whoa! Well it's a good reason to go red! :D

There's nothing wrong with dying it yourself! I think people can do a good job of it. :) If you have really long hair, then yeah, I can see it taking more work. MY HAIR IS MOSTLY GONE sldkhgsdklg

I miss you, too! I came across your wedding invitation - it had been buried on my desk under a trillion different things and I realized that I had missed the date.

I sincerely hope that it was a wonderful one, m'dear, you certainly deserve it.

You've been on the brain lots!

I'd enjoy it so much more, if there weren't all this freaking MATH involved in it. I'm good at math, you see, I'm just SUPER LAZY.
