Friday Morning

I gotta get ready and get out of here for my meeting today.  Then I will work all day.  Then I will go get my hair cut and colored after work.  I hope I can find a way to tell my hair stylist that I don't want red and blonde STRIPES, I would like highlights please.  No more with the damn stripes!  I don't care how trendy it is, I am 56 years old and that is too old to be wearing the latest trendy 'do.  And furthermore, I don't like strangers stopping me on the street to tell me how great my hair color is... holy cow, would anyone do that if it looked even remotely natural?  Don't answer that, the answer is "no."

I went out for dinner last night with a man.  It was perfectly wonderful.  Nice.  Lovely.  OK, I am not writing any more than that about that.

I have my triathlon on Sunday and I need to get some rest in the meantime. I have not been getting the kind of sleep that I need to be fully rested.  

I am off now to meet a sponsee at a meeting and then get on with my day.  Let's all stay sober today, eh?

Well at least it's not like a skunk stripe right?
I can't remember the last time I had "the works" at a beauty shop. before all that physical sutff, and afterwards too.
YES..I think I'll stay sober as well.

Last time I asked for NO RED OR BLONG Stripes (highlights) I ended up with RED HAIR and BLOND STIPES and they had to recolor it. I looked like a red and white zebra. I hope your hair dresser does a better job than mine did! Happy Friday. Jenn

Stripes are for skunks and you are not stinky!

Hello, "flag-striped lady" -BIG GRIN-
MC, I'm so glad you went out WITH A MAN...don't know why I'm glad, but, well, what is...IS!

Some day I'll let you know how you saved my life couple days ago with that "last line" phrase of yours, something like, "Have a sober day, everyone!"
(One more time/day!) Thank you.

MC, but you have those purple toenails and that means that you are very young in spirit. I actually don't like stripes or purple/green/pink/burgundy or otherwise strange hair colors. Just the basics are okay with me. I sometimes get natural blond streaks in my hair in the summer.

Dahlink, with a shaved head I just don't have those HAIR probs. Yes Maam, I'll stay sober today.

I don't like the stripe look at all. I have noticed the host on "What's Your House Worth" has that awful look. It looks cheap to me, like someone took a paint brush and painted it. Hey, maybe my brother has been painting these do's. I must speak to him about that.

Get lots of rest and good luck w/your Sunday thing.

Oh, and YFI for me too, I live with a man. Sometimes it is a large pain in the ass though! It's not all it's cracked up to be.
