I'm obsessed with the election and the economy (really?), and there's so much grab 'n go material about both on the Internet that it makes speed posting a breeze. Truly, this is the most outlandish, fascinating, history-making climate I can recall having lived through. I was born in the 1960s, but when that decade ended I was only three and a half, so I wasn't in on the good stuff. There's no way I can resist posting about what's going on, but once I move and get settled in, I'll be finishing some crafty business and putting the Purly back in Purly Victorious. At least as much as I can under the current political and economic circumstances. ;)
Today I have a bit of time. I'm working on a big project for my job, which means I'm procrastinating. That's where the time is coming from. Oh yeah. My job. I'm keeping it, full-time, even though I'll be living in Houston. That's about as fabulous as things get, and am I ecstatic about it? You bet. I'll be teaching my classes online, and developing materials for our online program that other grammar instructors can use. This arrangement has freed me to live wherever I want in Houston without having to consider commuting, for which I have very low tolerance.
Whom should I kiss? Al Gore? Bill Gates? JCR Licklider, for his name alone? I need to kiss somebody for this Internet thing. It keeps making my life better and better.
On another note, I've been having hair issues. I once read that in about 2000 years humans won't have any hair at all. Apparently we're evolving out of it, but for now it sure is of paramount importance. Isn't it? I guess I'm letting mine grow, and it's starting to get to the point between short 'n sassy and just hanging on my head like a wooly mop. I love the wooly part. The mop part not so much. Plus the gray. Oh, the gray. If the price of Miss Clairol's stock is down, I'm buying some, because I'm destined to single-handedly raise it.
Anyways, I needed to take this:
Somewhere, anywhere else. (This picture features bedhead, but still.)
Inspired by my friend Camille's hair, I'm going to try to have patience in growing it out, but in the meantime something needed to be done. For years, years, I've thought about bangs. A few months ago I decided I'd do them. I cut my own hair unless I want a major cut, then I call in The Bubs. I don't know the first thing about cutting hair, but if I jack mine up there's nobody to complain. It's taken me all this time to stand in the mirror, redirect a few locks to the front, and trim them.
I've decided two things: 1) hair is itchy, and 2) bangs are great for covering gray at the hairline.
Natalie got bangs not too long ago, and she looks all kinds of cute. Plus I saw a woman with hair just like mine in the 99 Cent store; she had bangs, and I loved the look on her. On me, I kinda have to get used to it, but I think I might be on to something.
Can I get a second opinion?
