A few weeks ago I went bright red with my hair color, but my hairdresser fixed that mistake and now I'm platinum blond. I was worried at first, when he stripped the color and I my hair was as white as Lady Gaga's. Then he put in the color and while it's extremely light, as least I won't blond anyone. Still can't find the camera, but I did find a picture that's rather close to the color, although I wish I was as gorgeous!

The reason I decided to go back to blond was because that beautiful red had faded to a sad washed out pinkish carrot with glowing white roots. I don't know what possessed me, this is the reason I went blond in the first place! Goofy me.

My ham for tomorrow is bought and the Easter basket is filled. I don't have any M&Ms so I won't be able to stuff them into the Peeps and nuke them, but maybe it'll work if I try it will miniature Reeses and the Peeps. Worth a try, wouldn't you say? ;)

I have downloaded the Kindle software to my computer so I can compare it to the Nook for selling purposes. It's a pretty basic reader, but gets the job done. I think Kindle has more books, but they've been doing this longer so I think that can be expected. I think it's interesting that I sold a Nook to a woman who was already aware of the Nook freezing issue (happens to new Nooks sometimes) and she bought the Nook anyway. I guess there's something to be said about being able to walk into a store and asking for help directly from a human, as opposed to trying to deal with online tech support. And the unfreezing is an easy fix.

I tried to access the book section of iTunes last night, but it's only available to the iPad. I did buy their audio book of the month (Outlander by Diana Gabaldon) and attempted to slip past the system and try to DL the application anyway, but it just doesn't work. I think it's a mistake that only folks with the iPad can get digital books from itunes, but I bet that will change soon enough. After all, B&N and Amazon both have their digital libraries available to more than just their proprietary devices. I think that within the next year the publishers will all get in line and work together to make sure all the companies provide them with the profit margin they're wanting. Amazon really didn't do themselves any favors with the asinine stunt they pulled that everyone on the freaking planet seems to know about. All I can say is that it's worked to Nook's advantage. People really flock to check out the demo device. Sometimes with a Kindle right on the counter with them and they still buy the Nook. Not a bad idea, really, when you think about it. Two readers, two libraries, more choices.

For the first time in a very long time I have multiple books going that I'm actually reading. I'm on the second book of the trilogy by Jay Lake, a book on celiac disease, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, and Food Of The Gods by Jules Verne. And I've set down the romance novels. Mind you, there's nothing wrong with romances, but I have read them almost exclusively for years, with only the occasional fantasy thrown in. I like the idea of variety, makes me feel like I actually use my brain. *g*

I'm avoiding Who spoilers like mad, so I'm pretty much going; "la la la, I can't see you!" at any Who references, because I'd rather share the watching with hubby. It's only 2 weeks, so I should survive. Still, new Who! Yay!
