The bed update is this: There is still no replacement bed to fill the gap in my life. Currently my side is propped up on my magazine collection ("don't use the Blueprints or Dominos, they're sort of collectible!") and it lists hard to starboard at the best of times, but without my husband weighing down the other side it's a sinking ship. We may give up this wobbly bed charade and just put the box springs/mattress combo on the floor in the meantime. Classy. But I tell you this: I will not settle for another sad, particleboard bed. I will find myself an awesome inexpensive retro bed, or bust.
In other news, I may dress up as a flapper for Halloween. I'm struggling with getting my hair into finger waves, and I am trying so hard, with really sad lumpy results. A little internet research and about fifty youtube tutorials turned up something called finger wave clamps, which seem to be readily available at Sally's Beauty Supply. I will be hitting up my local entity in search of these with the hope that they'll clamp my hair into instant wavy awesome. So. We'll see how that goes.
