No longer AFK

  
Hey everyone! Kristin here. While I was gone, I dyed my hair pink and got a tattoo. I am no longer gone so the Kristin-related updates (including a retrospective of what I’ve been doing) will resume soon. But here are my two favorite things I’ve done while I was gone. 😀

Right picture:

Hair: Special FX “Virgin Rose.” I do it myself, including cutting it, lately.

Eyes: MAC eyeshadows in Vex and Satin Taupe, Almay liquid eyeliner, Urban Decay Perversion mascara.

Lips: MAC lipstick in Fusion Pink

Left picture, or: Regarding my tattoo:

It is written Quenya, a dialect of JRR Tolkien’s elvish. It is a quote (part of a longer passage) from The Silmarillion, which is my favorite book. 

It says, in Quenya: “I cardar yar caruvalmĂ« nauvar i tama lindĂ­va.”

In English: “The deeds that we shall do shall be the matter of song.”

Soooooooooo I’m back, hello!

Another Pet Post!

  

Rachel posted her cats and I feel I’d be depriving the world of a prime opportunity to meet my cat.

This handsome beast is my cat, FĂ«anor (Fay-ah-nor). He is five years old – born Valentine’s Day 2010. He is named after FĂ«anor, once High King of the Noldor and creator of the Silmarils. He is one of the principal characters of JRR Tolkien’s The Silmarillion. His full name is FĂ«anor AirwĂ« (FĂ«anor the Orange), High King of the Back Yard.

  
He’s enormous – 16 pounds and almost two feet long. Like his namesake, he is stubborn, doesn’t have a lot of common sense, and is noisy. His favorite things are spooning under the covers like a stuffed animal, making noise, knocking things over and watching MotoGP with me (seriously, he loves it).

He’s the best cat in the world.

  
Now you’ve seen our cats. Let’s see yours! (Bonus points for other Tolkien cats.)
