Maybe today won't be so bad after all...

...knock on wood. In my relentless, yet what appears to be unrealistic, attempt at finding the perfect haircolor, I have miserably failed, again. Actually, the key is probably more along the lines of finding the right "colorist", which I believe I once did, only to find the doors of her salon locked and only tumbleweeds rolling across the prairie of a parking lot...not good for my abandonment issues emoticon. Honestly, although it was a two trip, 7 hour process, I was more or less happy with my last 'do' and should have left well enough alone, in fact, I was told by a few people to leave it, it looked fab. Long story short, I woke up today with orange hair. I suppose that is what I get, a brunette trying to achieve blond bombshell status (I am so lacking in most of the departments, but hey, a girl can try, right!?) The only bright spot to this morning was when I snuck in a waist measurement, don't tell, I am supposed to wait the 6 weeks for my trainer to do it, but apparently I do what I want, so...Glad I did, though! If the tape measure I printed out from the website (don't ask, I gave mine away) is accurate, I have lost at least an inch around the one thing that I thought would never leave me, my pudgy belly, YAY!! So, I am in a better mood now, ready to face the day with my orange hair (oh my gosh, now that I said that aloud, well, you know what I mean, I might just go throw the pillow back over my head).

    Some of us just don't understand what "hair coloring"

    Love your pic!! I am studying electronic engineering, just did my first year, but want to eventually pull out the big guns with a degree in electrical engineering. I, the bum I am, took the summer off, I wanted the full college experience :). I really just needed a break, I went back full time, and the freakin' homework, uhg. So, I just am enjoying myself, shlepping booze and food to the drunk and hungry, which is also part of my "not being able to lose weight" problem - I am surrounded by food. But I will persevere, in fact it is 10:00 p.m., I am in between shifts, and am gonna workout, I think...I want to...

    Well... CONGRATS on the inch lost... and as for the hair, remember, you can always throw on a hat! (I've used a hat to cover "color blunders" more than once in my life! LoL)

    hahaha, i would DIE if my colorist ever disappeared. she's a genius.

    just stay away from your blue and green closet items for now-- my hair always looks flaaaaming red when i wear those colors :) (and then i get those AWFUL snide questions, "does the carpet match the curtains?"... pfft. oh well, at least that means i pass as a natural redhead.)

    i noticed that we're both adult students! and math & science enthusiasts! (although, i'm feeling less-than-enthusiastic lately about my current summer courses). what are you studying out there in connecticut?

    anyhoo, congrats on the inches lost! i enjoyed your sense of humor :)
