Expatriot Act

The university of these days is a collection of books.

01 May 2007


This morning, and for the past 6 years of my life, I looked like this:


In my five hours at the salon I had multiple bleach sessions, two colors of hair dye, and a glaze. I also read two chapters of Ulysses and got ravenously hungry. I took pics all along the way.

Step 1: Back in Black. I start off tired and visibly worried. All of my friends and coworkers have only known me with black hair. This is going to be a huge change.

Step 2: Roots Gone Wild

Step 3: Illuminati. I like to think I look like someone from a medieval painting with the new-fangled dryers they have.

Step 4: Cheetos

Step 5: Drop Dead Fred (I am rather disturbed at how much I look like him there, as much as I love Rik)

Step 6: Cyndi Lauper

Step 7: The Fifth Element

Step 8: Counting Crows

Now I look like this:





It will take me at least a week to get used to it. At least. But I *think* I like it.A little redder than I expected but it'll get blonder in the sun as my natural blondeness grows in. None of my friends or coworkers have ever known me as anything but having black hair. Tomorrow's going to be interesting...

You look fantastic! (And that's quite a compliment, since "gingers" usually creep me out a little.)

Oh no you didn't just call me a ginger!

I'm a BLONDE baby. The red notes are the parts of the black that wouldn't come all the way out. Our friend Earth's yellow sun will take care of the rest of that.

GINGER!?! Sheesh. I should beat you like a redheaded stepchild. ;)

At least he didn't call you a carrot... 'sides, wasn't there that actress on that show about people boat-wrecked on a desert island suring a 3 hour tour... ;-)

I dunno, Meg. Maybe it's just the lighting in the photos, but a few freckles, a Raggedy Ann dress . . . ;-)

I like it! And Mark is nuts. Definitely not ginger.

The fun part of it is that you got to surprise everyone at work, and then once you've gotten completely used to it, the cohort will go nuts in July!
