missfrost: (oh good grief!)
The Council has been asked to give consent to a development in your neighbourhood. We would like to hear your comments before a decision is made.
The proposal is:

...change of use of the library building from offices (Use Class B1) to a buddhist centre (Use Class D1) with ancillary residential accommodation.

So you are saying I used to have a library two minutes walk away, but now it's going to be overrun with people being careful not to tread on ants? I've never been in a position to have a say on a planning decision before, but unfortunately any objection can only be toward the architectural changes, and cannot be 'personal.' Where's the fun in that?

Last night I completely failed to dye my hair. It's not that I forgot to do it, or didn't get round to doing it, but that my hair completely failed to dye when subjected to an hour of Light Ash Blonde. What? I know that the reds and brunettes I've dyed it in the last couple of years are hardest to bleach out, but seeing as I haven't dyed it since the first week in October you'd expect the roots to have gone Light Ash Blonde at least, particularly as they are only Dark Ash Blonde to start with. And I have been dyeing my hair for decades and it's always gleefully taken whatever I threw at it. (I started dyeing my hair when I was 10, and my friends' mums always told them mine would fall out by the time I was 20. Not only has it not fallen out, I've only got a couple of greys. In your face, my friends' mums.)
It's lightened very slightly, but not noticeably, and I don't know what to do now. Should I send a hair cutting off with the receipt and have a good complain? Should I go over it again straight away, which I don't want to go the expense of as I'm watching the cash until I secure a flatmate? Or should I leave it and do it 'a bit' again in a few weeks so it very gradually changes colour and people will suddenly realise I used to have a different hair colour? Or should I ask the buddhists when they all move in round the corner?

Speaking of flatmates, if I don't find one within about two weeks I will starve to death, as I have paid six weeks rent and deposit on my own. So if anyone knows of anyone looking, please point them over here. It's very nice, we have buddhists and everything. And the Co-operative sells a very nice walnut cake that I have plenty of.

I have been sent an unsolicited Daily Mail free with my Tesco order*. It's bad enough that I have to read bits of the damn thing at work, but at least I am getting paid for it there.
You may remember a particular statement in the news yesterday, 'The Cameron family asked for their privacy to be respected at this very difficult time.'

You may now contrast this with the Daily Mail's spash page front cover photograph, taken 'just hours after the death of their eldest son,' and the special reports, page 2,3,4,5,6,&7.

*And my Vesta chow mein, which I am quite excited about!
