Today has so far been close to heaven. Lots of sleep, then swimming pool, sauna, and bacon roll for breakfast afterwards

Now in hairdressers having proper colour added for wedding.

I am floating on a little cloud of serenity. Also, sauna and pool totally sorted out the back ache I've had lately. I think I need to remember that pain does not mean I stop exercising. Sometimes movement is what muscles need.

Read a really interesting FB post by Ruth yesterday about thin privilege in LRP and it vaguely got me thinking.

All very dull unless you're interested in people, Live Action Role Play, and how people respond to size )

This is a bit of a roll call. I don’t normally do this, but I’m trying to figure out who is actually reading this LJ as I want to use it a little bit more.

So, who’s out there? Who still has me friended? Who will read if I write?

Hats!

Today is a sad day.

Today is the day that I accept that no household really needs 13 different hats, including 3 different kinds of trilby. I feel like I'm rejecting old friends

The following hats need a new home. I am able to take them to games if that would be helpful or to pass them on to others. I'd rather not post them as hats seem to be tricksy and require large boxes.

I note that this collection of hats includes the original Father Gabriel Montoya big red top hat of godhood, rumoured to give the wearer strange voodoo powers and a collection of disreputable followers, and a white pimping hat which may or may not actually summon Dionysus when worn. Or maybe just the man from Del Monte.

They are all a bit old and a bit battered, but I think there may be some life left in these awesome hats if given love and attention.

...having read a lot of heartfelt, well thought through critiques of Valentine's Day, from people who prefer sincere, spontaneous, real gestures of love, who don't like the pressure on people to make these artificial displays of emotion, who don't like the way it ignores a lot of unconventional relationships and forms of love, and who just really find it quite an alienating day, I decided to share my feelings on the day.

So, I've just tried out a new aerobics DVD.

It's called 'Strip Tease Your Way To Fitness'* by Carmen Electra.

I'm not sure it actually counted as a 'strip tease'. For example, I know I spent about ten minutes there doing pliés. You know, those basic ballet moves. And I totally appreciate that Carmen Electra was doing pliés in a lot of make up, and whilst wiggling her shoulders a lot, but they were still pliés. I'm also not convinced that it counts as 'strip tease' to wiggle your ass whilst doing basic yoga moves like 'sun salutation'.

I think I miss the nice yoga workout on my Wii Fit.


*In my defense, it was very cheap, and was just there in Tesco.

So, I dressed up like a wench on Friday night, and both [personal profile] adze and [profile] badgersandjam took pictures of me.

And because I'm vain, I share my favourite one with you.

So, I may not have made it to Cambridge today, but I did make it to the hairdressers.

And lo!

I have new hair.

Do I not have the most amazingly cute new hair?

As very few of you will know, except those who have seen me in the last week, I managed to break my glasses last week. It was exceptionally vexing; I took off my glasses to put on eyeliner, dropped them two inches from my hand, into the sink, they landed awkwardly, and the lens cracked.

Due to financial constraints, I decided to not pay £200 for a new pair of glasses, and instead am wearing my old glasses from my South American days (the glasses that I bought in Lima, with [profile] quisalan translating for me with the optician. I also decided to get my eyes checked, and signed up for disposable contact lenses, delivered by post, for £20 a month.

This means I'm now shifting back from being a 'girl with glasses, who wears contacts for special occasions' to a 'girl with contact lenses who wears glasses when she's pottering around the house'. And it's odd. I've realised how very differently I look at myself when I'm not wearing my glasses. I think I look prettier, whether I do or not. I think I look less dorky. It's very telling that I've got one LJ icon of me wearing my glasses, and that's this one, which I've photoshopped pretty heavily.

So why have I been wearing glasses full time for the year? Mostly because I didn't feel as if I could justify having an additional direct debit going out of my account every month for contact lenses while my finances have been so very up and down. Now I'm working again (and might be able to continue working part time for the forseeable future) I have a bit more disposable income, and can afford the £20 per month.

The contact lenses still feel kinda sore and odd at the moment, but I quite like the odd glimpses I get of my face.

I'm also pondering my odd relationship with glasses. I think it comes second only to my relationship with my weight, in terms of how it affects my self esteem.

Something that someone said earlier was that Hollywood would naturally use skinny actresses if that is what the public found attractive, and it got me wondering. Now, I tend to stamp my feet and yell "skinny isn't that cute", probably horribly offending thin people everywhere, but maybe I'm wrong.

I am therefore making this post - this epic, photo heavy orgy of bikini shots with a poll at the bottom.

I think it's mostly work safe - no p*rn here - but is very image-filled.

First of all, look at these photos )

[Poll #988704]

And finally, feel free to discuss this in the comments section. I'm genuinely very interested what my friends genuinely find attractive in women.
