I went in and asked if they could fix my hair by dying it back to something resembling its natural color. Unfortunately, they couldn't, because they said they couldn't do anything until it was less saturated. She told me to get Head & Shoulders shampoo, which strips color. Who knew? So I did.

I did get the layers cut out, so it's all one length now except the 'bangs', and it's still past my shoulders, and all the nasty dead ends are gone, so I'm considerably happier with the cut, at least. It's nice and blunt. I kind of wish I could get my hair to blow dry this straight myself, but it requires a mirror, something to clip hair out of the way while under sections of it get dried, and most importantly, more patience than I've got.

I've got an appointment for the 24th when their top color specialist is going to be there for some reason. I don't know if the specialist is doing classes or what, but they apparently need heads to experiment on, so I will get the color fixed then for free. I'll also get the bangs bleached properly then for X3, which opens the 26th, so that works out rather nicely. (She said, "Will you be having this," indicating the streaky bit, "dyed back with the rest of it?" and I said, "No, I'm going to have that bleached as white as I can get it," and she said, "And why not!" :)) Anyway, you certainly can't beat the price, and it almost certainly can't turn out nastier than it is right now.

!Netflix did not deliver any movies to us today, despite saying on the 10th we should get some within 2 days, so I'm vaguely sullen about that. Maybe I'll watch some LFN.

Still haven't decided what project I'm going to work on. Probably won't decide tomorrow, either. (Actually, I think I've decided, and that I'm likely to do Phoenix revisions, then HoS revisions, then write HoC, but I'm not starting tomorrow. God damn it.)

debela says "Oh - the other thing."
Kit says "?"
debela says "I got it into my head that I am Behind on my butterfly because it should have been done last Sunday."
Kit says "Hello, Ms. Compulsive."
Kit, pot, kettle, black
debela says "I was muttering about this last night. (Oh, hush, Kettle.)"
debela says "I said to morganc14, "I'm having Kit Hobby Issues.""
debela says "morganc14 said, "What?" And I explained that I was fussing because I was Behind and I needed to Catch Up or I woul be behind the schedule I've got in my head for the other projects to ramp up to the HEAD ones in time and -"
debela says "lease glanced up. Summed, "Kit hobby issues.""
Kit laughs!
Kit is so embarrassed. *laugh*
debela says "But the funny part was that rob_donoghue came upstairs to chat and I said, "mm," and "Yes," and "That's nice," a lot and he eyed me and said, "I'm going downstairs," and that got my attention and I looked up, all wide hurt brown eyes, and rob_donoghue said, reasonably, "You're busy Kitting.""
Kit oh dear lord.
debela says "You're a Verb. :)"
Kit's become a verb. That can't be good.
Kit laughs!
debela says "That's very good!"
Kit hi5s :)
debela fives!

Ted and I also went to the bank and post office today, which took less than 20 minutes, which is only a miracle if you're in Ireland. :) And Ted got his hair cut, too, and looks startlingly like his daddy. I bought a couple of research novels and *last* month's Locus magazine, which had an interview with matociquala (damn, I almost spelled it right on the first try), so that was rather nifty. Although good God, 6 euro for the magazine. Maybe I should just resubscribe.

Dad got cast as an extra in The Tudors, a Showtime film, and may even get lines! Mom and Dad are on their way into Dublin tonight, because they have a 7am call for "Becoming Jane". Mom says this acting stuff ain't all fun and games, y'know.  :)

Mom paid for a subscription to be able to listen to the Mariners' games on the computer.  Without her knowing about it, Dad emailed the Mariners and told them they were living in Ireland and that she listened to the games that were on at a reasonable time.  So she was sitting there listening to the game and all of the sudden the announcers were saying hi to Rosie Murphy in Ireland!!!  And THEN the phone rang and Rick Rizz, who's one of the announcers, was on the phone, wanting to know if they'd heard it. *beam* My family rocks.

I promise this will be my last post about my hair for almost two weeks. :)

Congratulations on your new-found verbosity...verbness...status as a verb!

Luckily, I'm too far gone in ADHD-land to put together such detailed, multi-layered planning. My version of "Kitting" is just trying to catch up on TiVo...

I'm not blaming you! :) I'd noticed magazines are expensive here. Why is that?
madmiss on May 13th, 2006 03:36 pm (UTC)
Oh a number of reasons...
The Tax... (21% on most) and then there is the fact that the english and Irish suppliers know they can charge an arm and a leg because there are no alternatives.
And of course the exchange rate ... Sterling to Euros is not nice. (We get Locus from England so we pay sterling prices and are a month behind *le sigh*)
