The final evolution of the pineapple

ooooh look, you can see my earrings again!

ooooh look, you can see my earrings again!

While at a Triathlon yesterday (no, I was not a participant – bwahahahahha,) I got reaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllly tired of my hair.  Just like that.  Too long.  The ends were dead and fried.  I looked crispy.  People should not be crispy.  Fried chicken should be crispy.  Bacon should be crispy.  Hell, even some critters have been known to be crispy, but people should absolutely not be.

Being the adventurous type, I decided that I was going to whack off my hair.  At home.  By myself.   😀  I’m a ninja like that.    While I was hacking away at it, I looked at B and said, “Damn, baby, your wife is insane.”  He replied, “Nah, not insane – just brave.”  Awwwwww. :0)  ❤

By the time it was done, I had removed 4 inches of fried chicken wannabe and revealed soft, silky, healthy hair.  I had B trim up my neck with his clippers (that’s true love, I’m telling you,) but the rest of it I did with my own little frantic hands. It feels soooooooo good and it passed the test – I woke this morning, took a good look at it, and still love it.

Leaving Rydell High

July 19, 2008

As much as I love Frenchie, I just cannot live my life looking like a pineapple.  Apparently, she couldn’t either, as she is back to brown by the end of Grease!

I woke this morning and realized that I do not have a Pink Lady jacket and needed to attend to the tropical fruit that had taken up residence on my head.  Afeared of messing it up further, I called the Clairol hotline and was given specific intructions to do some sort of amazing chemistry experiment that would return my hair to something resembling, well … hair!  And what do you know?  It WORKED!

I’ll be staying blond until fall.  Then I’ll do a few weeks of crazy colors – pink again, blue, purple, maybe green. When all that is done, I’m going dark for the Fall and Winter.

Pineapple or not, I still say life is too short to be bored with your hair!
