Also, despite my grudge against the "Katniss braid" (side braids really are not the best choice for frequent movement, least of all on one's dominant archery side), I gave it a shot. Needs work, but if I get it right, it additionally makes a cute formal-esque braided side-bun.
I really need to work on my French/Dutch braiding again in general. Can't believe I used to do it every time I got out of the shower. Three tries in a row and my arms were KILLING me.
Some day I'll find a partner who likes braiding. Even if she's on the butch side. Little hotter than a butch who knows how to braid (and even enjoys it). Especially if she throws in head and neck massages. (I should know; I was one once upon a time.)
Now I'm just teasing my imagination. Time to go read a book. (Sure, Kiwi, that'll help.)
