locks of fury, indeed

Friday night I went with zarobi to the Washington Home & Garden show. The date moved about ten thousand times but we finally nailed down that if we spent the entire drive down and back "in a meeting" then I could vacate the premises of work early and we could have plenty of time to look at spas and siding. But really! We did talk about work alot. It's always productive. I got alot of brochures but if plumbing related things keep going wrong with the house, I can't afford to deal with any of the "prettifying" things I want to do. Yeah, sometime this weekend I noticed a hairline crack about 12" lengthwise on a drain pipe. Not knowing what to do, I called fabulist and he rushed to my aid on his trusty bike and slapped on some JB Weld. Of course we can't ignore it forever. Other than that this weekend it snowed. Whup! You know what that means. Lots o' WoW. Last night we went to a restaurant that most people ignore (Pasta Nostra) and had noodles and watched Love, Actually. A cute enough movie. In parts it was soaked with "realism" and in parts fantasy. I think overall it couldn't beat 28 Days Later as a V-Day movie, for I will never forget that year. What goes more with love than paranoia?

Moving on, many of you have heard me whine at length about my hair saga. Some of you haven't. I'll try to keep it short and get right to the pictures. :) The place in in Annapolis, and is called Touch. (Website has music - good, not bad.) The hair guru is Thom, who also writes poetry (!). They have two huge dogs. It's a neat place inside, with old fashioned barber chairs and stuff. All in all, it's a nice place to get your hair done. Just be... incredibly explicit. :) They kindly redid my hair at no cost. (Which is good, considering how heartbroken I was at the extraordinary cost and deeply unfulfilling nature of my first visit.) My mom got me this for Christmas, and for that I thank her. Love you mom!

Hi, my name is Pouty McWebcam. This is what my hair looked like when we started. The old dye job had grown out 4-6 inches and you could hardly see the blond highlights. My eyebrows indicate my own indignation at hair boredom.

Oh, le snif! They have done nothing right! It is ... mousey with ... greyish streaks! Yet, behold, the magic of the flatiron hair torture device. Thom was very gracious about the idea of a thirty year old woman taking up drumming, but took a cue for "purple highlights" from my jacket here. What time was it? Crying time.

Like OMG! They fixed it! And the flatiron hair mistreater has worked doubly well!

I can't say the cats liked it so much, though.

Phew. I am glad that's over, and I can look in the mirror. Happily even.

YAY PURPLE! The kitty likes it so much that it cannot be acknowledged. Kitty culture is kinda weird like that. You look hella lovely.

I think he hates things that smell nice, and I smelled like fancy hair products. I did not smell like shrimp or salmon.

Thanks :D

I'll have to take a pic for you of my latest hair experiment. But I'm nearly blonde. :) My hair is at an awkward state of growing out, though, so it looks awful.

I am mightily familiar with awkward growing out. I am just now to the point where when I put the hair in the pony tail, half of it doesn't fall out immediately. I do want to see the blonde! I want to see it!!! Share! :D

Sometime soon we need to come visit... are you guys free any weekends from feb 25th thru march?
Feb. 16th, 2006 02:02 pm (UTC)
I'm going to a conference in Ohio on March 16 & 17th (and probably not coming back til Saturday). But other than that, we're free. Would love to see you guys! (and I'll take a pic of my hair this evening). :)

March is getting the kinks worked out of it. So to speak. Hope to be down there soon. Waiting on that pic. :D

It looks awesome! Well done, Thom!
Feb. 16th, 2006 03:22 am (UTC)
It looks really great! I like it so much!
Feb. 16th, 2006 04:42 am (UTC)
Ohhh... I love it! Wish the Metro went to Annapolis!

Hooray! The last pictures look really good! The dark color suits you well.

Do you have a straightening iron of your own? If not I'll totally go shopping for one with you. I loooove my straightening iron.

I went to Target and got one. You can evaluate it soon enough! I wish I had know I would have saved this pleasure for later!

Maybe you can help me figure out how the hell to use it effectively.
Feb. 16th, 2006 01:18 pm (UTC)
YAY! I'm so glad you called and got it all straightened out and have something you are happy with! It looks awesome!
Feb. 16th, 2006 03:02 pm (UTC)
Love it!!!

That purple is wonderful! Your eyes are so excited and shiny-pretty with it.

It's hard to beat being happy when you look in the mirror.
Feb. 17th, 2006 04:34 am (UTC)
Thank you! :D
Feb. 16th, 2006 04:36 pm (UTC)
Dammit, now I want to do fun stuff with my hair. And I was trying to be boring, au naturel, growing it out. Bah! Bah, I say to you!

But, um, your hair looks nice. :)
Feb. 17th, 2006 04:33 am (UTC)
We can go through different phases at the same time. I just went through my boring au naturel growing it out phse. They always come to an end sometime. :)

Thank you!
Feb. 16th, 2006 04:54 pm (UTC)
It looks fabulous!
Feb. 16th, 2006 04:55 pm (UTC)
Yay for pretty new hair!! :D It looks great!
Feb. 16th, 2006 07:29 pm (UTC)

i'm so glad they were able to finally do what you wanted!
Feb. 16th, 2006 09:50 pm (UTC)
Oh, much, MUCH better! No more faux-Jennifer-Aniston for you, drummer lady!
Feb. 17th, 2006 04:32 am (UTC)
Indeedy! Thank you!

Oh Em Gee gorgeous!
I occasionally straighten my hairs with the torture device; it is not time-efficient for every day but it neither is it time (or styling ability) prohibitive for every once in a while when I feel like futzing.
Feb. 17th, 2006 04:32 am (UTC)
I started to straighten the hairs today, and realized it would probably take an HOUR, and then stopped. Oy. I believe it will be relegated to the same every once in a while bin for me, as well.
