  • I'm sorry your 10 days is up, but I guess at least now it's not a question. Not having that hanging over your head has got to be a bit of a relief. And with your hair you do look fabulous while dealing with this

    Hmm, so your sha-jay-jay is one more oriface you to play with? (Too soon? I can never tell)

    I have no idea why they opened up YouTube at work today- but that was totally an awesome thing to watch

    • I'm sorry, i've missed a lot here. Stupid trig homework getting in the way. Seems completely pointless and obvious to say, but i hope the Sha-jay-jay (*snicker*) works out for you. i have a totally random and pointless picture for you:

        • Forgot to mention earlier - your hair does look awesome! So bold - and I love the color variations. I bet it will fade with lots of variation too. Is it shocking to you when you look in the mirror? It was for me when I had lots of purple in my hair. I loved it as it faded and was much more subtle. In fact, I did it a second time to myself and liked the way I did it much better. It has faded again - I think I'll go right now and pull out the hair dye...

          • Thanks for digging my Peacock hair everybodys!

            No I don't find it shocking.
            It's much darker in some light, like a navy blue with hints of plum and bits of deep teal...
            And in other light is shines brighter.
            Shiny, strutting, peacock in the sun light, brighter...

            I think my stylist was a little worried when she first pulled back the foil...
            She was like: Oh wow... it's blue... like really blue... like navy blue. This stuff STUCK!
            And I was all: Okay.
            And she was: Are you sure...
            And I was all: Heck yeah, you know me!

            I actually like that it's really dark this time...and that it will fade.
            It's sort of a 'taste the rainbow' process.
            Every week a new color!

            By the time I was back in there since my last color the top had gone from deep teal to pale aquamarine and seafoam... and I still liked it.
            If this one looks off midway into the fade I'll pop in for a touch up on the blue/green again.
            I'm hoping that the fade on this one is great though... I can see that it has potential.

            There was a conservative older lady in there again when I was getting it done... she said "You're my hero".
            I like that.
            I honestly don't care what people think of it, as long as they think.
            One of husbands friends made a comment like "what's going on here (with my hair)".
            So I chatted with him a little... He said "Why?"... I said "Why not??"
            After a bit more he got it... hair color doesn't meant a person is crazy... they are just letting their fun out a little.
            (He seemed to want to think I was cracking under the stress of medical issues. I had a good laugh.)
            And if it doesn't hurt anyone WHY NOT. I let go of some my internal policing agents and decided that I can have crazy colored hair if I want to...and not keep beating myself up for NOT being employed/employed in a traditional conservative white collar-ish job. Those same stooges stopped me from playing with non-traditional hair color when I was younger, the wildest I'd go was coppery red (which we MAY see a return of this fall along with a Vermillion/Plum top... oooohhhh seasonal colors!). If that makes other people uncomfortable... maybe they should have some private talks with their own internal policing agents about BS cultural conformity indoctrination.

            Ohh... so I basically just wrote my "Why I have Blue hair" post.
            Because its FUN that's why.
            And it's a bit cathartic giving up/kicking out some of those internal police that I honestly just don't need in my life.
            Maybe I'll get tired of it...
            But that will be on my time.

              Totally this. I re-purpled my hair today and then took my daughter to my best friends house to see a movie with her daughter. Her daughter said "Your hair..is..purple..."
              My BF just stood there and cried a little as she knows why I do it.
              But also just because why not. It's kinda fun and it beats the hells out of screaming at the powers of the universe for the "wrongs" that have been gifted to me.
              I too have mostly gotten the "brave" and "wish I could do that" comments.
              Letting a little crazy out is a good thing when you can find a non-destructive way to do it. Plus it reminds me every day that I am here to impress myself - not everyone else.
              I'm going "home" in a few weeks and I'm sure the family will be asking my big sister who's going with (she lives near me) "What's wrong with her???"!

                Hey!
                Yep... yep... yep... all of it!
                Husband asked me today of his mother commented on it yesterday, she didn't.
                So he said maybe she doesn't like it.
                And I said "I didn't do it so SHE would like it."
                Yeah... there is a little but if F-u in my hair.
                I mean... a lot of times in public my brain gets overloaded and I tic by shaking my head, and weird eye or mouth movements, or I need to wear the big QC15's, and people are going to STARE anyway, because I don't look/act "normal".
                I actually think the very BOLD hair color makes them look away more/stare less when I get weird, unless they like it and then they'll smile and even say so.
                So yeah... When I see it all bright and CRAYOLA bold... it makes me smile.
                And I'm really the only one who counts, because husband doesn't care as long as I'm happy.

                Keep rockin' what makes YOU happy!

                • I actually just stopped in to say,
                  I weighed LESS again today! *waves pom-poms crazily*
                  (Cheezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzeeeeee-y)

                  I have no idea why, but it's a good thing.
                  Maybe my effort to bump my calories up a little, and prevent myself from falling too far below 1200-1000cal, by adding some fat has really helped.
                  Something obviously has.

                  And then I went out and ate some Japanese food with husband...
                  I wanted all sushi stuffs.
                  A chopped raw ahi and baby octopus bowl with nuta.
                  A plate of sushi.
                  And a seaweed salad.

                  But I wasn't ALLOWED to order just sushi sitting at the hibachi with my husband because the place we went bites bootys.
                  I mean... husband doesn't eat sushi, I DO, what are we supposed to do, eat dinner separately? Noooooo!
                  So I had to order the vegetarian Hibachi and settle for only having a sushi appetizer plate.
                  *sigh* (Next time we go to the OTHER hibachi where they cater to my WHIMS!)
                  As if 'next time' won't be at least 2-4 months away.
                  I'm already swelling...
                  That sushi was DELICIOUS and worth it.
                  5 luscious nigiri... tuna, salmon, sea bass, and yellowtail... each topped with a spot of scallion, fish roe, or black sesame.
                  (and yeah I dipped it lightly in the soy sauce... and ate the pickled ginger)
                  And I ate some of the rice and veggies... and 4 cooked shrimp.
                  Main issue... TOO MUCH salt.
                  WAY TOO MUCH SODIUM!
                  I shall have to pay for my trespasses.

                  I really love sushi.
                  (Husband does not understand my love of eating uncooked ocean creatures.)
                  If the Sha-jay-jay made it possible to enjoy sushi more often it'd be so worth it!


                  And now...

                  LOL... not really... I'm in my Jammies and have no bra on and it's late... getting candy is impossible at this point.
                  I really just wanted to see this awesomely CHEEZY old video.
                  And I'm really thirsty and stuff... I'm going to drink water and eat some grapes!

                  • Hey Cori!

                    Sushi is my thing, too... Went two weeks ago to Pittsburgh on big date with hubby... Octopus, scallops, seaweed salad, specially-created rolls stuffed with salmon and tuna, lotsa roe... Nest time I'm going to get the raw quail egg yolk topper I didn't know they had but saw on the way out...yuuuuummmmm!!
                    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

                    • You know what I want... giant clam!
                      Seriously... I could eat mirugai nigiri until I POP.
                      I usually have a few and then other stuff too... being at a good sushi bar is sort of Augusts Gloop in the Chocolate Factory territory for me!
                      Scallops... spicy conch... a fresh uni handroll when I can get it... I want it ALL.

                      And yes to the little raw quail yolks... so silky saucey when they pop!
                      Both mussel shooters (chopped green mussel mixed with the raw yolk and the juice from the shell, served in the shell)and gunkan-maki ahi (scraped tuna, with chili paste quail yolk on top) or the little orange fish roe with the yolk.

                      You know what is horrible... I'm sitting here with my pressure getting all out whack, head aching, ears ringing and whooshing and clicking to let me know I've been really 'bad', from the load of sodium I ate... and I'd happily toss another piece of lightly dipped in soy sauce sushi in my mouth RIGHT NOW.
                      Terrible little fishes and critters tempt me worse than bread, cakes, candy, whatever and the rest of it all rolled together!
                      LOL
                      *shrug*
                      Maybe after the Sha-jay-jay! Maybe......

                      • After all those yummy descriptions of sushi, I'm sitting here eating left over salmon for breaky - the closest thing I've got to it in the house - plus I'm a total salmon head!

                        Comment


                        • Ok... so admittedly TODAY... I wouldn't eat it.
                          Last night I was still obviously 'high' on the NOMs!

                          Today is pay the piper day.
                          Head is considering exploding...
                          Even blinking hurts.
                          It's a good thing I have magic tylenol.
                          Aka... hydros... Shhhh... it's a secret.
                          I only take them when the shit hits the fan.
                          And today it's more like my head is getting stretched/sucked into a black hole.
                          The shit has not only hit the fan... it's has sprayed nasty all over the wall and all the furniture as well.
                          BLEEERRRGGGG!

                          I want to drink ALL the WATER.
                          But I know I have to pace myself...
                          My self inflicted feeling bad is so pathetic. LOL

                          • Ahh... the 4th of July.
                            An American holiday that my German Shepard HATES.
                            Poor, poor, baby.
                            The other two pups don't much like it either...
                            All the booms make them nervous and anxious.

                            I had a cruddy day.
                            Scrounged out some pork chops and frozen spinach.
                            That's all I had veg wise.
                            So... husband grilled the chops and I creamed the spinach.
                            And I made it through another day without leaving the house.
                            I may just manage the whole week.
                            Wait... no, I won't. *crap*
                            I'm almost out of meds and have to get a scrip filled tomorrow...
                            At least to pick up on Friday when I go to get milk, or the world WILL END.
                            Drama? Nooooooo!
                            Well, maybe just a little since it would only be my world ending/head exploding.
                            Speaking of heads... mine wants magic tylenol and I'm resisting it.
                            Resisting it valiantly even...
                            Or not.

                            Here...
                            All the HEROS for the 4th, and my favorite Heroine!


                            And more WW, because I lover her.

                            • My head was mush and I went to bed early for a change last night... was dozing off in my chair anyway.
                              So I was sleeping by 9pm. Like a baby for a change.
                              Sometimes my head just gets so tired...
                              Then... 2:30am... and I wake up to a horrible squicking sound coming from the HVAC closet.
                              Bahhhhhh....
                              I opened the door, no frozens... husband wouldn't wake up.
                              I tried to go back to sleep but the noise was trying to bore it's way straight into my central nervous system and kill me or something.
                              So... awake. Put on the QC15s to block out most of the world... and back to the chair and laptop.
                              I'd really like to sleep again.

                              I'm also betting that it's not going to be easy to get a AC guy out here in a timely manner on a Friday.
                              And I'll have to be awake to make the call to get him here... BLEH!

                              Yesterday I had to have husband take me to Walmart to deal with my prescription issues, pick-up is today... which is good or I'd be out of meds.
                              I'm back to wearing the QC15's pretty much full time.
                              I wore them to Walmart and in the restaurant for dinner... the husband making life easier for me by insisting I not cook on days we have to run around.
                              I had to stare down one older man a bit.
                              Sometimes I think I should just go ahead and embarrass people like that by walking up, grabbing their hand to shake it, and saying "Hi, I have a disability... what's your excuse?"
                              It's one of those things... with more traditional assistive devices (canes, wheelchairs, etc) people are well trained in "not seeing". There is the glance, and then the look away and put on blinders effect.
                              But with my headphones... NOOOOOOoooo. Stares and whispered commentary.
                              Hell, if you're going to do THAT to someone and be so obvious... just ASK! It would be less insulting.
                              Curiosity doesn't bother me. I will gladly explain that I have a neurological problem that causes me to hear too much and that the headphones block out extra noise, nice to meet you and have a nice day. All smiles.
                              Otherwise... Fuck you.
                              I will stare you down and make YOU uncomfortable.



                              My husband has said these words... "Why don't you take a picture..."

                              Though not quite the way Pee-wee says them.
                              And usually with an expletive involved.

                              • there is a level of stupidity involved with staring that i can't really abide

                                'how dumb are you, really?'

                                mehh idiots.. but hey you could hint to your husband that a personal assistant would be a wonderful gift. and if he gets you one, think he'll ship me one too?
                                beautiful
                                yeah you are

                                Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
