the story of an invisible girl

Ren Faire
Yesterday I didn't leave the house at all. I wrote myself a to-do list that was so pathetic, I had to mark it private. For example, the first item on it was "shower". When you are dragging enough that your to-do list is topped with a shower, and you don't get around to it until after 8pm, you know the day is a lost cause.

"De-tangle hair" was entry number two. To my relief, I succeeded with only minimal hair loss. So I won't have to cut it all off and start over after all.

Today was a much better day! I got up semi-early and met thatguychuck at the RenFest! Finally, I managed to go. It was a really great time. After thatguychuck kindly escorted me in, I sat in The Amazing Tomak's booth for awhile. I admired the merchendise, and watched a Washing Wench show. I also enjoyed catching up with folks.

A short while later, davehogg and aiela showed up. I wish I had remembered to ask how she pronounces her username. We had a fun time touring the various shops and taking in some shows. As Dave says, the RenFest is all about Hair Toys. I got a cool one (is it okay to link this pic?) Dave did a great job in capturing our adventure here.

We saw 4 shows, and I had the most delicious caramel apple. I really like my nifty hair toy (which is allegedly a physical representation of the mathematical formula for Pi! Not just pretty, but geeky too -- coolness). It was great hanging out with them and getting to know they better, and I also really enjoyed having Chuck show off "his" booth.

Definitely a good day. Now I feel very allergic though, and it's time to try to get some sleep!

I'm not sure what you mean by "mathematical formula for Pi," since the exact value of Pi is unknown, but I'm curious to examine this hairpiece now.

The sign at the hair place said it was a mathmatical representation of pi or something. There wasn't a lot of detail.
lahabiel From: lahabiel Date: September 19th, 2005 12:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Pretty vague. I mean, a circle could be thought of as a "representation of Pi," since Pi is its circumference divided by its diameter. I would hope the hairpiece has something cleverer than that in mind.

According to the sheet of paper they gave me, it's "patterned after an ancient design. Some say it is as old as 6000 years, but no one knows for sure. The original design is thought to have originated in the area we know today as the Middle East. It is an actual working model for the mathematical formula for pi. The piece itself can twist and turn into more than 60 different shapes...."

Somebody found a link to a very similar product here:

It's definitely made completely of circles and half-circles that twist in themselves. Whatever it may be, it's pretty darn cool!

Show me over sushi at Noble Fish one of these days.

What are you allergic too?
renniekins From: renniekins Date: September 21st, 2005 12:40 am (UTC) (Link)
Extensive research has proved that I'm allergic to the following:
mornings
work
nature

Guess a long morning walk in the woods before going to work is out of the question for you? lol

It looks like a modified Flexi-Sphere, also known as the Indian Ball or sometimes Lotus Flower. A coworker has one sitting on his desk.

Okay, that probably spoiled the magic. :(
renniekins From: renniekins Date: September 21st, 2005 12:44 am (UTC) (Link)
No no, that didn't spoil the magic for me, just makes it more interesting. Yes, I'd say it's a very similar thing, if not identical. Cool, I've never seen something like that before. You should tell your coworker to try putting it in his hair; it looks really good in mine!
devnul From: devnul Date: September 21st, 2005 12:48 am (UTC) (Link)
LoL! I think if I suggest that to this particular hair-lacking coworker I might lose a limb. :)
