Oh shit, it's blog day. I had a topic idea yesterday, hope it comes back to me.
My tummy is not okay with me today. Gassiness finally passed this morning, and now I feel nauseated. This morning I had a sweet potato with butter and a few eggs over easy in butter and drippings from last night's steak (did not clean the pan last night) and I feel like it wants to come back up. A cup of coffee with half & half actually sounds really soothing right now, not sure if that's just because I'm a bit cool and that would be nice and warming. I am also pretty tired, but I slept like a rock last night (another mid-night waking, but was out as soon as I got back to bed after peeing).
Today's minor case of pessimism says, "Well, it was bound not to last." Maybe it is a delayed effect of the cookies and beer I had two nights ago. Last night, I started to feel really down on my way home from work. I was feeling guilty about not wanting to buy Boyfriend chocolate chips (he asked), a pretty silly thing to feel bad about. I don't think I can fairly say that any particular thought made me feel down, but the feeling persisted for the rest of the evening, resulting in some griping and moody self-deprecation. I don't feel as great today as I have been for the past week, since starting the Tryptophan. I don't care to try and analyze the "whys" right now, I just hope it wasn't placebo effect.
Some things that are good about today: I don't have to make dinner tonight, I have work to do today (failed hard drive, so I'm imaging a new one and recovering data), I have an orange to eat, I don't have to drive the scooter in the rain.
No exercise. Maybe tonight. Maybe not. My knee has been bugging me since the cookies & beer. No pain, but there is a feeling of a "bubble" in the joint, like it needs to crack (my knees have always cracked/popped with regular movement), but I can't get it to release. My leg won't go straight as a result, which means awkward walking. Thank goodness for my chiropractor appointment on Saturday!!!!
Bleaching my hair means I get to see very accurately just how fast it grows out of my head. Regular dye up-keep dictates a refresh every 6 weeks. It has only been 11 days since I bleached my hair (12 since I dyed it pink) and I have some fairly significant re-growth (no rough estimates today, but I'm pretty sure I'll get over 1/2" this month). Go primal! Budget and laziness will dictate when/if I touch up the roots and re-dye. Without monetary concerns, I'd say I'd touch-up in 6 weeks, using Virgin Snow on the roots post-bleach and a new brand of pink the next day (not the Beyond the Zone crap I used last time). Atomic Pink (Special Effects) was my favorite in '09, it even glows in black-light, but I don't know how often I'll be exposed to that kind of light
My hurrs are fluffy today (and man I look pretty pissed/tired). This is what happens the day after a keratin conditioner "wash". It helped take the waxy feeling out of my hair. I'll do a lemon rinse in a couple of days, maybe. I wonder if that will be enough for a regular cleansing routine. I kind of miss the super short haircut I got a few months ago, but I also really want jaw-length pink hair. So indecisive!
