Düsseldorf, human hair, and hand mixers

I have my plane ticket to Düsseldorf! I'll be staying there a few days with my friend and her family before we make our way to Leipzig. The Wave Gotik Treffen website still hasn't listed the bands that are playing this year, but I'm sure we'll have a blast no matter what. Our hotel room has been secured, so all I need to worry about is which pairs of tall leather boots to bring along. I think I'll be packing an actual suitcase this time around! Yay luxury. Afterwards, on the 13th I will head to Berlin on my own for a couple days to see the Berlin Biennale.

I ordered a hair piece a few days ago. It's wavy platinum blond and is supposed to make my hair look fuller and longer than it really is (it's a 15" piece). You clip it under your hair at the crown of your head and is supposed to look "seamless". We shall see. If it looks good I might splurge and get the longer one too (the 22"); I've always thought it would be really cool to have long platinum hair, although I'll never have it naturally because bleached hair becomes far too damaged to make it that long before breaking off. They had human hair versions of some of the styles too, but they were vastly more expensive, and it seems really gross to be wearing someone else's hair.

Last night I did some paint experimentation. I hung a shower curtain in my kitchen as a drop cloth, took a bowl of paint, and used an electric hand mixer to fling the paint out at a piece of kraft paper. The results were nice: long thin tendrils of paint in arcs as well as some delicate spray. Very cool. I'm thinking of doing a few abstract pieces next, so we'll see.
