Operation Purple  
Today I went to get my hair done and after getting so many "that's really great" with the red from Operation Black Widow, I took the leap and had her permacolor it this time. For a long time I've done blonde highlights but this time it's darker, more of a reddish chestnut (not Black Widow red this time *g*). So we'll see what the boys think of it. (if D even notices - he took an hour to notice when it was BRIGHT RED. In his defense it was kind of dim at the time, but it was hilarious anyway). kiddo has now officially dubbed it purple.

And in the salon at the same time was some actor. I think he's on Scandal as a recurring character, from what I gathered eavesdropping. But I don't watch the show, so I don't know who he is other than I was pretty sure I'd seen him in something else, probably some guest star role(s). He's about thirty, short blonde hair, fairly tall... So there, have a vague celebrity sighting. :D

Kidlet is going to the semifinals for our AYSO region, and hopefully on to the championship. He's got some good players on his team, and he's a pretty good defender when he gets into it. I'll be glad when soccer's done, though.

Now that Big Bang is in beta (thanks Rose!), it's onto my ridiculous Yuletide fic next. I don't know if I can make it as funny as it deserves, but the idea makes me chortle, at least.

MEANWHILE, hit me with the current character meme:
Pick a character I've written and I will explain the top five* ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

(this meme a.k.a. My Characterization Let Me Show You It. eta: It can be anybody from my fandoms, Not necessary to trouble yourself over whether I've written them enough or at all. I write enough ensembles to have at least some thoughts on anybody)

and one of these days I need to catch up on tv and actually write a post about it all. Because wow did I fall behind during NaNo.

Haha, I love living in Los Angeles with the Vague Celebrity Sightings. Here's an even more vague one! Last night I was stopped at a light on Santa Monica and I saw a swarm of paparazzi's chasing a couple (ugh, worst, it all looked so bothersome and rude) and I couldn't make the couple out through the flashbulbs, but clearly they were...lol. Someone important. (I did see Jack Black later last night, but that was planned because I went to a Variety Q&A)

I could try to be clever and unexpected like you, but if this were real life I've love to just sit at your feet and listen to you talk about Sam all day, so I'm going to be uninspired. Sam! Tell meeee.

You went permared! I'm not sure what it is about husbands and hair. I don't expect mine to ever gush about haircuts, you know? But it does amaze me that I can cut my hair several inches or get it relayered and it can take him so long to notice. I think what he told me once was "I just notice you have great hair." *shrugs* Can't really complain then.

Tell me about your Athena!
