A Scary Story
Because it is October and Halloween is coming up, I want to tell you a scary story. A story about . . . my hair.
You may recall from a recent blog entry that I have a love-hate relationship with my hair. My hair has multiple personalities — it can look ultra-fabbo one day, and like complete crap the next. Without any intervention of any sort from me.
But it is consistent in one way. I shall explain.
I wash my hair every morning in the shower. I carefully shampoo and carefully rinse. I carefully squeeze out excess water, then carefully wrap my head in a towel. No rubbing whatsoever. Fifteen minutes later, I carefully remove the towel. And my hair always looks like . . .
(Note that I have put the hair photo in a pop-up window to avoid scaring innocent children who might glance at the screen. Sensitive souls, be forewarned.)
It really isn’t easy being me. And first thing in the morning, it ain’t easy seeing me either, lemmee tell ya. Elsa Lanchester got nuthin’ on me.
You suggest that I should use conditioner? Um . . . I do.
Yes, I finally sewed up Fern.
And I made good progess on Butterfly! Both side fronts and one sleeve nearly done.
I Got the Time, Baby!
And how! Because last week I got this in the mail:
A Spongebob wall clock, sent to me by the lovely Nathania.
But wait! There’s more!
This alarm clock was accompanied by a mysterious note:
Lucy scrutinized this note carefully and she’s pretty sure that it’s the work of some dear little longhaired dachshunds!
Lucy had a good weekend — she was pampered by her favorite stylist.
And then she helped me to knit!
Yup, that’s the same hair as in the scary pop-up picture! Photos taken about half an hour apart. Amazing.
