I've always wished that I had long, curly red hair, and I've always been jealous of people who are natural gingers! So hooray for wigs - all of today I have been pretending that I am a natural redhead!
One of my sponsors, Choies, recently started selling wigs, so of course I had to give them a go. They're very soft and don't fall apart like this wig unfortunately has been from the moment I got it, and they also look more realistic - I've been wearing this one and this one out at night (without a hat too) and people just think it's my real hair. They're on special right now, and though I wouldn't buy it for $60, the $30 special is definitely a reasonable price.

On the science side of life, apparently there is a sweet meteor shower known as "the Geminids" peaking tonight and tomorrow night, and it is visible from basically all around the world (weather permitting, of course)! This meteor shower happens annually, and has been observed for over 500 years.
I was wondering why they occur at the same time each year, and this is why - it's because we run through the debris of an asteroid called 3200 Phaethon each time we rotate around the sun, this asteroid being the most likely candidate for the Geminid meteor shower with an orbit that runs right through Earth's orbit!
This year's meteor shower is meant to be particularly impressive because there is a new moon, meaning the night sky is nice and dark and ideal for spotting falling meteors! This page tells you when you should by looking at the sky depending what country you are in, and this post written by Phil Plait explains what meteors are and gives you a how-to guide on watching a meteor shower.
