Nothing much to report right now. I just wanted to share with you the "Angry Eye" of a cat with something on it's head.

Snip, snip!

Have you ever cut your own hair? I just did and I must say it was very exciting!

You see....

It had been almost six months since I had splurged on a trip to ye olde beauty parlor.

So-I got a "professional" cut a few weeks ago. Of course, when I called to get an appointment I was told that the girl I had seen before (and liked) was gone. Despite this I figured that they could place me with another, just as capable, hair stylist.

I was given an appointment with a girl named after a part of nature. Now, I have nothing against the earth or parts of her aspects. However, I do seem to dislike the taste of people named after parts of her. I knew I was in trouble but I went anyway.

When I arrived, nature name girl turned out to be much worse than I had expected. She was a scary punk rock girl with very bad taste in clothes, tattoos and hair!!!!!! I should have left. I'm too nice. I stayed.

Now, she was very professional and seemed to know what she was doing. However, she did not seem in the least to be interested in what I wanted. This is always a bad sign.

She "styled" my hair into something that was almost exactly what I already had (and which I had just said I did not care for) and sent me on my way. When I requested that she modify the "style" she had given me she seemed really put out. In the end, I only managed to get her to take a few more snips out of my bangs.

I left a very sad girl. I had just shelled out more than I should have on a haircut that I hated. Since then I have just sort of dealt with it since there is no way I can afford to go somewhere else.

Today, I came to the realization that no one ever really looks at me anyway so who cares if I go to a salon to get my haircut! I grabbed a pair of craft scissors and hopped into the shower. Snip, snip, snip and I am now about three inches rid of my stupid haircut!

Although I long to have short, straight, glossy hair that looks modern and stylish I know that can never be. I will just have to be happy with my medium, wavy, wiry hair....But at least there is less of it to have to be happy with!!!!! :)

And-It was great fun seeing big globs of it drift away with the bathwater too!!

It's Fronkenstein!

The world premier and I was there! We saw Young Frankenstein: The Musical today. It is AMAZING! They are going to win every Tony this year!!

This is the world premier and from here it goes on for it's Broadway opening. Mel Brooks has been in town for weeks writing and rewriting the script while they built the sets and costumes. Everyone's hard work has really paid off.

All the favorite lines are there along with a few new ones. The songs are funny with the instant hit "Please Don't Touch Me" sang by Megan Mullally. The dancing is awesome with the show stopping "Putting on the Ritz". And-Bless Brooks for adding a couple of fun references to Seattle's (Starbucks) coffee crazed citizens.

I know most of you can't make it to Seattle to catch this one but it's worth a look once it hits the road in tours. If you love the movie you'll love, love, love the musical too.

Me at age 2
I was recently asked what I have learned from life so far and about an event in my childhood that lead to one of these lessons. Here was my answer:

-You can’t make people like you
-Death comes to everything
-Love does not conquer all
-Some acts can not be forgiven
-You can not control your destiny
-Anger never resolves any problem
-Knowledge is the one thing that can never be stolen from you


When I was in first grade I helped a friend cheat on her spelling test. I was caught and then I lied about what I was doing. The teacher made me write a note to my parents. It was awful. My parents were so disappointed in me.

I just thought I was being helpful to my friend. I couldn’t understand why it was bad. I knew the answers and she didn’t. It seemed more like I was sharing not being deceitful.

Now I can see that I was not only was I hurting her I was hurting myself. I was allowing someone else to benefit off my hard work. I was allowing myself to be used. And, she was selling herself short by not putting forth the effort to learn the material.

It’s a lot to think about but when you’re that young you don’t put that much thought into things. (Then again-when you're as old as I am now you still don't put that much thought into things!)
