You know what I want?

A hairdresser I can email. Like, back and forth with. So I don't have to have those awkward conversations face to face, and so picture communication is easier.

I also want to not get sick until I get to all the shows I want to get to. (Nov 12th would be an acceptable time to get sick - plenty of time to recover before Tgiving.)

A bigger ipod. A squeaky-clean upstairs bathroom. A way to store CDs on the ceiling. Peace and abundance for all good people.

Last night after I hit the ground in Baltimore Jack and I enjoyed some sushi, and then went home and sealed all our drafty old windows with those plastic & tape kits. Now I think we need to find a way to seal the doors better because they are still letting in a ton of cold air, particularly around the handle/lock area. Jack arranged for someone to come repaint our entire roof. This is very exciting. I really do like the feeling that we are taking better care of our home, even if I strongly dislike the work & expense. If only the journey were more pleasant, really.

Wouldn't it be challenging to try to communicate with one's hairdresser without the ability to gesticulate wildly?

My theory is that one would not need to gesticulate as one would send jpgs. If additional gesticulation was needed, you would already have covered so much ground by the time the appointment happened you would have a better foundation on which to gesticulate upon!

Hrm, you might just have a genius idea here for the next wave in hairstyling technology. If you could somehow put it into practice you could make a berjillion dollars.

Try Hey Red there on Main Street. They send out coupons and stuff via email. They are very together and e-friendly. I like their hair-cutting skills, too!

THANK YOU! I have been by there a million times but never seen the place! I emailed them.

And a pony! Or a bunny! :)

Have you checked out the various sites online that let you craft hairstyles online? Unfortunately they all seem to cost money to use, but the concept seems nifty (esp. if they could also tell you how your hair will look a month later when it's grown out a bit). I know it's not what you're looking for, but it might help you print something out you could take to your traditional, old-fashioned stylist.

At least house improvements feel like more of a financial investment, unlike, say, car repairs which feel like throwing money into a pit of fire.

Yeah, unfortunately I already have the stuff I want to print out, I just want to avoid having to print it out! I either have to wait until after hours to do it at work or I have to print it on my crap quality printer at home or I have to lug my entire laptop into the salon which also is hard to get color across on.

You are right about the house improvements vs. car improvements sir!

Why are you getting sick? Have you had your flu shot? Also, echinachea has been shown to be no better than placebo, but there is some very promising research about zinc during cold season!

I am not getting sick! But it seems like people around me are. So I am really trying to prepare myself. I think airborne has zinc but if not I will find something that has some! I used to use that sinc stuff you squirt in your nose.

Also staying away from cigarette smoke will keep you from getting sick - smoking makes you much less able to fight away bugs you breathe in, as well as weakening your immune system!

Sadly, I was in a casino all weekend - makes it REAL hard to get away from smoke!

You don't need to get brand names if you know what you're looking for - airborne is totally overpriced. Just pick up a bottle of zinc tablets. Also, though the research isn't conclusive for healthy people avoiding colds with vitamin C, I think there was some positive association with something and it's not going to hurt you, so you could take like 500 mg C every day, I do that when I'm worried about the sick, but if you have acid reflux issues, make sure you take it with food, not on an empty stomach!

I swear by Airborne, actually. And it's chock full of placebos.

Sadly I can't take it anymore :(

Yeah, I think airborne has stopped me from getting sick a bunch of times, honestly. I took some before I got on the plane Thursday. But that was my last tablet!! I need to find more.

Pst. Airborne is just a multivitamin!

I know! I also know that I use it and seem to get sick less... could totally be a coincidence but there you have it! One part science, one part superstition.

Oh! Maybe you know this. Someone said that there is stuff in spinach that blocks you from absorbing the iron. Is that total bunk?

Sparkly bathrooms in 30 minutes, I SWEAR (clean, not just surface clean). Very easy, I will show you next time I am in the luverly Maryland.

SRSLY??? You can't just tell me??? Because my bathroom is looking like a five hour project right now. I need to wash the walls. :(

If you are going to wash the walls, buy yourself an adjustable microfiber mop (if you don't own one already). These things are GOLD on every surface, and will cut your cleaning time down quite a bit. I would spray the walls with a gentle cleaner, dampen the microfiber pad, scrub the walls (you can spot clean the parts that are really bad with a damp cloth and extra spray), and then use a clean pad to rinse the walls one last time.

I should do a cleaning picture post. LIKE WHOA.
