Let the Molly Ringwald comparisons begin

At least that's what happened the last time I went red (orange). I friggin love it. I think Rich thinks it's a bit much -- I think I was born with the wrong hair color and wish it were somewhere in the orange family all the time.
Why don't I keep it that way all the time then? I like things fairly low maintenance and non-natural red hair takes some diligence to maintain. Roots, of course, and my hair grows freakishly fast, so double that. It's not just the roots thing -- red fades faster than any other color, so one minute you're vibrant -- the next? A little mousy.

For now, until I can take no more of hat days and frequent hair appointments -- I am a rock star. A little shorter, a little more hair product, a long white nightgown, a dreamy hilltop and the rain would be fallin on my head like a memory and tearin me apart like a new emotion.

On another topic -- do you see what's behind me there? That's a test pattern and it's not on our giant TV that's out getting fixed, no -- that's on the new LCD screen TV that is taking it's place while it's out.

Not me, it was Rich, the wuss couldn't handle it and says he wants a flat screen for downstairs anyway.

I must say, this TV is from the latest breed in high definition and has an even more gorgeous picture than the giant plasma. So much so, I felt a little motion sick while watching some aerial footage on that new Planet Earth series. The HD channels are amazingly 3-D-ish -- it reminds me of those 3-d view finder pictures I used to have as a kid -- "how do they do that? I could go in and walk around in that picture".

It's a great haircut and color on you! When I had my hair red I used to use Paul Mitchell shampoo with a light red wash to it to keep it vibrant. I think you can buy shampoos like that at the drugstore now..just use it everytime you wash your hair! Worked like a charm.

Thanks! I'm loving the cut -- it's a good bed head cut even.

I just got the pantene version, doesn't look like it has much color, but I'm giving it a whirl.

I love the cut and color. I have to get mine colored by someone who knows what they are doing and stop trying to color it myself. I'm so sick of the black that just won't go away.

Thanks pritz! I was almost black once -- I wanted hair like courtney cox, so I went as dark brown as I could and it looked black and I did not look like courtney cox -- I looked like elvis.

People still asks what I was thinking and it was over a decade ago...I was thinking I wanted to look like courtney cox :o).

Sometimes you win, and sometimes you're elvis.
