It might be that I'm overreacting

Something terrible has happened: I've lost my hairband.

It just fell off while I was deplaiting my hair, and landed somewhere random in my room, and I'll never see it again.

"But IB," I'm pretty damn certain you're saying, "you have more hair than God. surely you have more than one hairband?"

Well, first of all: that's not a given. I lose hairbands a lot, and buying them would be one of those activities Daily Mail writers seem to think is a required activity to maintain uterus ownership </i>which I consistently fail to carry out. So actually, I don't own that many hairbands.

But let me tell you about this hairband, and perhaps you'll understand the import of the occasion.

This wasn't one of those usual weirdly coloured elastic things with hair tearing metal clasps, this was a transparent plastic band that was almost invisible when in, staying put and provided me with hours of occupation working out all the twists and kinks and making it lie straight. Hours of amusement, I'm telling you. It was quality plait restraint, I'm telling you.

Most importantly, this is a hairband that I stole from Bing while in Chicago, and have worn pretty much every day since then.

Argh. Woe indeed.

Does that mean I have a uterus? :S

No, but you have a right to have a uterus.

And you'll fight to defend my right to have one? Possibly by forming a Suicide Squad? :D

Those mofos are HARD to see when they go flying. *uses them on her own hair and on dolls*

... Also, since I use them on dolls, and I have many more dolls than I have heads, I have a whole MESS of the things. (The Daily Mail might believe I am a girl, but they'd believe I'm a six-year-old girl.) I am also going to the post office on Wednesday anyway. If you want a couple dozen and do not mind that they will not have Girlfriend Mojo and your address has not changed since I sent you a Christmas card, lemme know and I'll be happy to send some your way.

While I'm very very tempted (I last moved house in 2006, so it would depend when you sent me a card) - I think the girlfriend mojo was the important thing.

But I am very touched, so thank you!

"all things deemed necessary by my panel of female advisors."

Insert "air headed, with heavy chav leanings" somewhere in this sentence? Shesh O_o
