Hair color: much better. Not striped. I am now going to do nothing to it for 6 weeks and then make some kind of decision about whether I’m going to keep it long or not. Right now it’s pretty dry and thrashed from the stripping treatment, but I have expensive shampoo and conditioner, and the brutal hairdresser assured me that with patience and continued use my hair would work its way back to normal.

Man, my scalp hurts. Irish hairdressers are not gentle. Ow. Also, my Young Dubliners t-shirt did not survive the experience. Apparently the stripping agent dripped down the back of the shawl and bleached streaks into my shirt. I didn’t discover that until I came home. Not so happy about that.

and, mostly so the length is actually visible,

I have not looked at HoS today, and that makes me happy. Ted’s making bbq ribs for dinner, and that makes me even happier. I think I’m going to go shopping tomorrow, which isn’t so much a happy-making thing (usually quite the opposite) as it is simply Not Working On HEART OF STONE, which is inherently happy.

I need to find some tape to close up the DVD envelope I accidentally opened this morning, so I can send it back.

This is my life. Small things. :)

  1. I cannot say why you look so Irish in the first picture, but you do.

    Also, KITTY!

  2. That looks VERY nice, actually. And your cats continue to be cute (particularly in a “we’re just waiting to take over the world” kind of way).

  3. Plus her skin looks significantly lighter in the first picture.

  4. Okay, maybe not “significantly” lighter. More like “a little” lighter.

  5. I think that first one would look great on an About The Author page. :-)

  6. Formatting feedback on your Author page…viewing that page on my IE 6 browser on 1280×1024 resolution is causing the left edge of the bio info (in the middle to be tucked under the left-hand side menu, obliterating whatever margin you built into it.

    Or, hey, I can be smrt and take a screencap and upload it so you can see what I’m seeing. I’m all in tech support and shit.


  7. Wow. That color is gorgeous on you. :)

    Much luck with the conditioning!

  8. That’s it! Everyone out of the Internet!

    Please don’t shoot the messenger. ;) Figured I’d let you know, even though the page is still legible.

    Oh! And I finished Thunderbird Falls Monday night!

  9. …duh, of COURSE a stripping agent destroys your clothes!

  10. *blink* I read this:

    with patience and continued use

    . . . and thought you were talking about your /hair/, not the /conditioner/. I spent more than a brief moment wondering whatthefuck is she going to use her hair FOR. Then I reread and feel . . . oh-so-clever right now. *covers face with palms and sighs*

    *snickers at self*

    And damn! That’s some long hair! Like others, I luff the first pic. And is it just me, or are the tips of your hair considerably darker-towards-black than the rest?

  11. T’isn’t just you; the whole of it looks a lot darker when it’s not in sunlight. Some of it’ll wash out, and … well. I’m not going to decide what to do with it in general for at least six weeks.
