For Me? It’s Not Even Thanksgiving!

I woke up to an odd sound yesterday but it couldn’t have been what I thought it was, could it? I rolled out of bed and got dressed, then headed to the bathroom to do my hair. There it is again. That is a weird echo on that barking dog… Later on, making tea and damn my eyes if I don’t hear it again!

At this point I notice the dogs are going nuts trying to peek through the blinds, so I head to the kitchen window and take a look myself. Holy crackers with cheese!

Apparently wild turkeys are abundant in the Fort Ord and Marina area, along with gigantic shaggy deer in Monterey and coyotes all over the dunes. It’s an amazing show of wildlife here. You may have noticed that all these photos were taken through a rather tall chain link fence. Suck it. There’s no way in hell I was getting closer to these gigantic wild turkeys than I would an ostrich without a protective layer of something between us. At least, not unless they were dead and plucked and ready to be stuffed. Nom.

A Text Chain-Letter That’s Actually Fun?!

Say it ain’t so! And yet it is. I received a text chain-letter from a friend. The letter?

Pick the fourth picture in your phone, no matter what it is, then send this challenge along. See what you get!

So I sent back and forwarded and here were the results.

This is what I sent. BABYKINS!!!

My mom's new pup, Suzie.

You can't really tell, but it's Miss Kitty in a bag. Ryan sent me this. Squee!

Amy sent me this one. I kinda hear the crazy groundhog music…

Try this with your pals, it was really fun! I was surprised how much I looked forward to getting these pics. Those who didn’t send me a pic – and you know who you are – why you wanna break my heart?

That’s right. Wayne’s World lyrics to express my sadness.

Grow It- Show It- HAIR!

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with my hair. It’s growing out from a bob where it was shorter in the back and had almost Aeon Flux tips at the front (complete with the curl). Now, however, it’s time to get some structure back into the hair as I get the dead ends trimmed. In order to better know what I wanted I created a hairdo collage- most of them from a virtual makeover site using the pic of myself from below. 

Int the interest of sharing the fun, I’m posting the options I thought most flattering. What I didn’t save was the Little Orphan Annie gone goth ‘do I gave myself at one point. My sister thought it looked great, but all I could think was “Hey Mr. Kott-eh. I brought a note from my mom.” 

Kinda cute, right?

The first two were found in random searches, though I know the second look is from the Tabatha portfolio. I know because I squealed like a schoolgirl because I love her show “Salon Takeover.”  *grin* 


This second look is obviously a little more woman than I can handle. I’m not sure that without the color I could do the cut, but who knows? What I know for sure, I’ll need a 1.5″ flatiron (preferably a Chi) and an extra hour each morning. But that’s the point! Remake myself to take time on myself. The rest of these are me with different hair. Some of these are from www.lhj.com and others are from the Mary Kay site. I’ll let you guess which are which. They’re gonna be rapid fire now. You ready?
