Bad hair! No cookie.
I'm having a bad hair day. The darn stuff doesn't like me today, and it has paid no attention to my efforts to make it look nice. Since it was not looking good brushed down, I decided to pull it back. That usually works okay.

First I tried putting it in a clip. Random pieces of it came spurting out of the clip at awkward angles. Then I tried a high ponytail. The bits by my ears looked pulled far too tight, and the stuff at the top was bumpy and unkempt, while one strand wandered down my neck, ignoring the ponytail altogether. Now it's in a low ponytail, barely presentable.

I thought about calling-in-bad-hair to the office this morning, or perhaps just calling-in-ugly. C said they wouldn't believe me, but I said I could email them a photo, and they'd be quickly convinced. Maybe I should be wearing a hat, or a paper bag. But I'm here, weird hair and all, even the strands by my ears which are defying gravity and hovering parallel to the ground.

Oh well. Here's a photo of me with some of the ladies I hung out with on Sunday night, a time when I was having a slightly-less-bad-hair-day, and had fairly successfully pulled it back.

Re:

aww..thanks! (:

(of course, I generally filter the pics I post, to make sure I look good in them...)

Very very cute pictures, nifty! You couldn't be ugly.

Um, why does your friend from Seattle have a moustache? Is she getting a sex change, or is it just drawn on to be silly? If the latter, she should also be wearing a velvet leisure suit and a snaggle-tooth necklace.

aww....thanks!! (:

I haven't asked, because I don't think it's polite. (One of those "tact" things we keep telling you is such a good idea...) I presume it's natural, and she simply hasn't felt there was any point to the plucking/waxing/shaving/whatever torture that many woman put themselves through to conform to society's expectations.

Heh, tact? Sorry. It looked like it might be drawn on in greasepaint, from the pictures.
