mellicious: pink manicure (GW - ele icon)
Somebody really needs to do something about the elevators here at work. I got off at 8 but the electronic display said 7. Very confusing. There's one over on the other side of the building that will tell you it's on 42 or something (it's a Douglas Adams elevator!) despite the fact that there's not more than 12 floors anywhere in the complex.

I got my hair done yesterday, which was a relief. There comes a point - it seems to come about 2-1/2 months after the last color - when my roots get long enough that all that gray suddenly starts driving me absolutely insane. Now it is nicely dark plum with no gray visible, at least for the moment (and hey, when they're colored the silver hairs become highlights!), and I think I even like the cut, too. And it is not too short, which is Rob's main criteria for my haircuts. Not that I disagree with him, anyway - I don't like my hair terribly short. Since I have started letting them layer it more the sides are shorter, so it feels shorter overall, but in the back it's still pretty much the same length it's been for a long time, which is sort of vaguely collarbone-length. A little longer than shoulder-length, if you follow me.

This weekend is Beach Party Weekend in Galveston, which means that the traffic will be in major gridlock all weekend, and my mother wants to celebrate my birthday this weekend, so we decided that rather than deal with the traffic, we will just spend the night in Houston Saturday night. We got a reservation at the Best Western near Hobby Airport for a very reasonable price. Since we will be going out on Saturday when everybody is coming in, and in on Sunday when everybody is coming out, that should keep us away from the worst of it. (What I really wanted to avoid was going to the mainland Saturday and then dealing with coming back Saturday night, because I've had some really awful experiences with that in the past.) I think we will probably go someplace in Kemah for my birthday dinner. Maybe Saltgrass Steakhouse, I don't know.

It was so gorgeous outside today. Of course, that's a mixed blessing this time of year, since the Seawall was packed with tourists and it took me a lot longer to get home than it would otherwise, but it was so beautiful I can't say I really cared. I always wonder about the people who come to Galveston to go swimming this time of year, though, because the water is not warm. In fact, it's about 60, which I know from past experience feels awfully fucking cold. But that doesn't stop them, because it's spring and they want to swim, dammit. (What I never understand is why nobody wants to swim in the fall, when it's uniformly gorgeous and hot and the water is warm too, and there's no tourists anywhere. It's something of a mystery to me.)

I might have been so happy to be out with the warm weather and the tourists because I was happy to be away from work. We got busy this afternoon and I got really stressed. I don't even really know why, because it was busy but it wasn't that awful. I think I'm spoiled; I'm just not used to having to work under time pressure these days.

One nice thing - I get to sleep an extra hour or so in the morning, because Rob is going to the oral surgeon to have a couple of teeth out and I have to take him since he's having general anesthesia. (The teeth both have old root canals that are messed up because our old dentist was a quack, and our "new" - non-quack - dentist said since they're way in the back it was probably better just to pull them.) It's only supposed to take about half an hour, and I'm supposed to go to work after I bring him home; I hope he seems okay or I'm going to be afraid to leave him alone.
