A Friday Free-for-All…
I’ve been hating my old theme for awhile; that narrow strip of text stressed me out. But what doesn’t these days. Anyway, still working out the kinks with this new theme, so I apologize if you visit my website and are greeted with life-sized images of Z’s Entourage of stuffed animals.
Speaking of new looks. I need a haircut. Or, like, a tattoo or something. Things are getting desperate, the elliptical machine is not working its magic, and I’m ready to take things into my own hands (or the hands of a talented hairstylist or tattoo artist). Z just noticed Husband’s tattoo for the first time the other day, and her delight was infectious. I’m ready to impress her with my own tattoo.
But you know, a haircut might do the trick.
Actually, she’d be thrilled with goldfish crackers.
And if I got a tattoo of a goldfish cracker!? I’d have myself a new 21-month-old BFF.
The thing is: I want a good haircut, and those aren’t cheap. At the same time, getting a real style seems sort of pointless, as I’ve worn my hair up every single day for the last fifteen years. Actually, I think I was born with my hair in a ponytail. (Total lie; I was a baldy just like Z was.) All I know is I’m ready for less hair. Something between what I’ve got now (down to middle of my back) and what I was born with (nada).
I’m adding a new feature to my blog: interviews with UNpublished authors. If you are a struggling writer, or just a writer who would love to be published someday, don’t wait for fame to come to you! Tackle fame through my obscure website, where I will treat you as a guest on my very own imaginary talk show. Which means: without the makeup and hairstyle, and without a studio audience. Leave a comment if you want the glory.
I promise I won’t make fun of you. Much.
Since what the world needs now is Clark, sweet Clark, I end with this:
Love the theme 🙂 I like the bright, cheery look & pics of Clark are never bad either. If you’ve known me long, you know I never, ever keep the same hairstyle. I’m more the opposite – I kinda wished I could stick with a ‘do for some time & really thoroughly enjoy it, rather than be frustrated every 6 weeks & need to “grow it out” or “chop it off”. At the moment, I’m growing it out, but I honestly don’t have a plan for it. Now that the heat is soon upon us, I’m sure I’ll be regretting it!
I would love a short cut like yours, Vicki! And I’m envious of your bravery vis-a-vis haircuts.
Hi Beth! I got my hair cut by Dawn at Y2K Hair & Nails in downtown Davis for YEARS. She did a great job and never charged more than $50. I cried when I had to leave her 🙂
You know what. I might just give Dawn a call. It’s time to do something about my mop. Thanks for the recommendation!
Ooo, look at those cute pink jelly bean paws!
I say go for tattoo! I’ve always wanted one. And you need a perma-star somewhere.
What? Not a goldfish cracker? You’re right though; I do need a star. I’ve loved them since eighth grade, which as we all know is forever ago.
p.s. I lurve your hair. And your braids/buns/updos.
