Let's talk about hair

As a kid, I was somewhat envious of some of the kids at school who had complicated hairstyles day in and day out. I think the most advanced one my mom and aunt could manage was a ponytail and a plain braid respectively, but I love them heaps just the same. :p

Anyway, left to my own devices, it took years for little Eina to realize that you were supposed to comb your hair. Ha, imagine that! I could have been the Tangled poster child.

Also, I have stubborn, uncooperative hair. I was once forced to return a hairstyling set I'd ordered over the home shopping channel because my hair refused to hold a curl no matter how long I kept it twirled around the curling iron or how much ozone damage I caused with the hairspray.

Anyway, long story short...tried my hand at a French braid tonight. It could be neater, but it's passable. As Kai-Lan has taught us, "you'll get better if you try, try, try."

P.S. I got my hair permed 2 or 3 times while in elementary school because of Andrea Zuckerman from the original 90210.

After school snack

It was okay, but not really my cup of, tea. :p

That reminds me of when a Swedish celebrity blogger wrote "It's not my cop of tea" as she belittled the people who shop at outlet stores.

It's not just for rubbing into wounds anymore!

I wanted brunch

...but it was 3:00 PM and the possible brunch places seemed too far away, so this had to do.

The Little Niece has recently fallen in love with puzzles. Wonder what she'd think of this display at the hospital.

Show and tell for today brought to you by the SIL. While preparing dinner, she discovered a little green bell pepper inside the red one.

Who knew bell peppers could get pregnant?! Or is this the bell pepper equivalent of Russian nesting dolls?
