And we're going goth on Saturday. I made a bat shawl for my costume, too, which I adore. And, because my plain old light brown hair is too boring, I decided to dye my hair burgundy.
At least, that was the plan. The color on the box looked burgundy-ish, on hair about my color, too. But the result is considerably brighter! Fortunately, it shouldn't last too long. I used Color Pulse by L'oreal, and it supposedly washes out in eight to twelve shampoos. And I dyed it tonight, which meant bright red hair for work! Hey, my boss said yesterday that it was okay! :)
Should be fun, though, for a few days. It's still way more normal than a lot of what I'll see there!
Edited to add a photo
I took this photo at work, at my desk. See? Bright!

Yes! Tonight we won in the Hall of Heroes! It has taken a long time (I’ve been playing for two years, and I’m rank 3.) But it was worth it.
And it was an alliance group, not a guild group, which was kinda cool. We had members of SoE (Spirit of Elijah), SOE (Spirit of Elisha), JCHC, FSCF (Four Star Christian Force) and HOLY (Holy Angels).
To make it even better, we won a FLAWLESS victory against GANK and CCCP, two of the best guilds in the Hall, 22 to 3 to 2!
Now, part of the reason we won is that GANK and CCCP, as two of the highest ranked teams, fight each other often, so there's lots of rivalry there. The battle started with each team quickly scoring one run. But then GANK and CCCP turned on each other and fought bitterly, until we had seventeen relics scored. Then they finally came after us...but we did very well. None of us died (flawless, remember?), and we scored five more runs. They only managed three more runs combined.
Not bad, huh?

It's based on the Keirsey Bates MBTI personality test.
So I looked at this, and I thought, "Huh? Are they NUTS? I'm not a performer! I get stage fright! I don't like being in the spotlight, most of the time."
But then I read a little further. I am rather playful, and quite cheerful. I think I'm warm and optimistic, sure. I'm not the "eat, drink, and be merry" type, exactly. I believe in the value of an optimistic outlook, grounded in realism, and taking advantage of opportunities. But the whole "eat, drink, and be merry" thing usually carries a connotation of hedonism, and that is so not me. (Though I do love food...)
I love being around people, too, or at least talking to them. (TeamSpeak, anyone?) But new and hot? Not interested, really.
Fun and affectionate, active, avoid conflict...that's me. And "not a big deal?" Oh yeah, all me.
Weird how something can sound like one thing, but mean something totally different!
