D.I.Y. Hair, Hands

I gave Don a haircut and I gave myself a new color. Here we are waiting for
a taxi in front of our apartment, squinting into the blinding Dubai sun.

For yukosugar: This is my do-it-yourself French from Elegant Touch.
This is a picture of day 3 - NO chips. After this was taken, I totally cleaned
the kitchen and bathroom and they're still unchipped. So fie on those salons
who take all your yen!

Little Kitties

So a nearby vetrinary clinic was holding a Feline Friends open day. LOTS of kittens and "second-hand cats" for adoption. For some reason, "rescue cases" aren't as popular here as at home; at least, it seems to me that everybody wants to pay $500 for some kind of certified purebred, even though there are tons of sweet kittens that are practically free for the taking. (Maybe for the same reason you never see anybody driving an '89 K-Car around my neighborhood - just muscle cars and Benz M-Classes.) Anyway, even though we couldn't ask her, we were sure Tortoise was hoping for a sibling... a pet of her own, if you will.

This is Biscuit! He's about 8 weeks old.

Her other new hobby is chasing blinky things on the television screen.
She's a fan of LOST, incidentally.

Speaking of LOST, can it get any scarier? Collapse )
