This is not an inane post about my hair

What with the tsunami victims, the social security crisis, our country at war, and the Oscars, I really feel that I need to focus my attention on issues greater than myself. I have a lot going on right now relatively speaking, but it’s nothing in the big picture. At work, for example, I’m managing a project to help answer some of the biggest questions about higher education and equity in this country, and I really feel like I’m a part of something bigger than my day-to-day worries.

And speaking of work, I had to leave a little early yesterday because I decided that after more than a year and a half of neglect, I needed to get highlights again to brighten up a bit. I did hours of internet research on New York salons, an academic field unto itself, and finally found rave reviews about a colorist who was the “savior” for girls with ash blonde hair who had gone “everywhere in NYC”. He was brilliant, and a total sweetheart, and I am suddenly a redhead. Not like fresh off the boat Irish girl red-red, but I’m hovering on a line between the red and blonde labels. So new city, new look, it all works.

What was I going to write about again?

  4. Actually, after a couple of washings it’s calmed down to the point that it doesn’t look so radically different from my old hair, just slightly redder and streaky, I mean, “multi-dimensional”. But I’ll try to take a pic.

  5. They love the spectacle, they love the magic and the
    crowds and the balloons and the bubbles. Tea lights are suitable and comfortable tunes really should be playing in the track record.
    Kids love toss games, so why not create a snowball toss game at
    Frosty’s belly.
