I wanted to post a picture of my new braids today, but the weather didn't cooperate. All I can do is to tell you that they are fabulous and I love them a lot. Even more than the first (and last) ones I had. The fake hair the two Kenyan girls used now is different than what the hairdressers used in Estonia. It is much softer, silkier and it burns instead of melting.

I've got 166 thin braids, it took them 8 hours with breaks and a quick dinner. My scalp is a little tender still, but I won't have a bad hair day for the next 4 months, which makes it worth all the pain. There are a multitude of ways to style the braids — put them up, let them down, braid them, put them in ponytails or make formal 'dos. Have I told you how much I love the braids? Jätte mycket! A great deal. I promise to shut up about braids now.

Yesterday I decided to check Bloglines out. The result is that I transferred all blogs on my reading list that have a feed there. I like how easy it is to see in one glance who have updated. I also set up a feed for The Innocent Abroad and got a subscribe button from Bloglines.

Setting up the feed with Blogger was incredibly easy: just provide a folder on your server and a filename. It's that simple.
