braids and braids and pink

The doll looks creepy but that's a nice pink. I'm not sure how I feel about barrel "braids" though.
Her braids are amazing. And omg pompoms. And imagine all of it pink. It would be so wonderful. [plus, the picture's from travelpod !]
This is the most amazing shade of pink I've seen. Gorgeous.
Pretty braids.
It would look better, I think, if it was all pink.

NACLO = awesome

I have been missing out for the past three-odd years. In other words, I have been busy not participating in the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad. It's so sad.

The past week or so, before all the snow, I spent three hours solving some logic puzzles. It was possibly the most fun three hours I have spent in the past three years.

So now, I'm waiting to hear back, to see how I did. I really hope to be invited to the national invitational round, to be held mid-March-ish. That one is five hours! :D

Beyond that round, there's the international Linguistics Olympiad. This year it's in Uppsala, Sweden. There's no way I'd get that far, but I can always hope!

As for the questions, there were many warnings, like "ARGH DON'T TALK ABOUT THE QUESTIONS BEFORE THEY'RE POSTED ON THE WEBSITE GRRR." Anyways, my favorite *kind* of question was the one where they give you some sentences in a random language and their translations, and then you have to translate some other sentences from English and to English. So fun.

In other news, I need to learn about Turkish vowel harmony...

Dye! [Not today!]

I have finally procured a blacklight.
So, as soon as I am able to, I will re-dye my hair!
How are these related? The hair dye I have is glow under blacklight.
Am I excited?

And Special Effects has a hair dye they call "Bright as %#*! Yellow."
