Barcelona, part something: Stiges

Yeah, here's more pictures. I keep putting them up in hopes that it provides a bit of a break from reality for you, as you read this. Not like my life is so unspeakably fabulous -- I just know that, as you sit at your desk at work, it's pleasant to escape for a moment.
Or, if you're sitting in your oven-less kitchen, watching the rain and wind whip by out the window, completely destroying all plans to take a walk this afternoon. This merits escape to Spain as well.

God, gross. What's up with that color, too? The best part, though, is how, even from this far away, you can see my dark roots. I STILL haven't re-colored it, but I did force a pair of scissors into Catherine's hands and made her cut my hair after I saw all of the pictures from the trip. For the record, I'm trying to grow my hair out into an Old-Hollywood-style bob. I tried last summer, too, but I didn't have the patience to get through the gross-hair phase of growing it out.

Oh, and then we saw this:

Hey -- I haven't gotten the package yet! Serves you right for lacing it with ricin.
