I am having so much fun reading all the hair stories sent to me! Here’s a few great ones:

The lovely Melodye shared one hair cut she’d rather forget on this blog entry. (Bonus: a photo to prove it!)

The equally lovely Chantel Simmons posted her own hair disaster story here on her blog. (Two words: White roots. And she’s a brunette.)

Here’s a cute one from Caitlin:

When I was 7, I was going through my princess phase and had my really long hair. My mom hated it. So she took me to “get a trim.” 7 inches. I looked like Peter Pan.

Then when I got to be 15, my mom couldn’t take me to get my hair colored so my boyfriend drove me and when I got there, my barber just started chopping. I came out with 3 inches chopped off. OMG it was awful. Apparently my mom called in before and had her cut it that short and purposely didn’t take me so I couldn’t yell at her. She has serious hair control issues.

Caitlin, you’re still a princess to us! And yeah, that’s some serious hair control issues. If you’re a writer, this is prime book material!

More stories will be posted later! Now on to . . .


I missed the first episode last week, and half of last night’s. (Tis’ the season for baseball!) So someone please tell me, is Jaslene the same girl from last season who didn’t make the final cut? Good Lord, that girl can take a photo! She’s one of my favorites. And I made a very VERY big mistake by going to the website and seeing that I can watch the episodes I missed.

But NO–I will be strong and resist. I’m dead-set and determined to finish TSC’s rough draft by tomorrow, so I can’t be weak!


Maybe I’m just being cranky, but I’m having a hard time getting into this season. I love Blake. Love Jared, even though he needs to step it up a notch. Love Lakisha, like Haley and Sabrina, but when I got home last night, I was like Eh. I can miss it, whatever. Surely something must be wrong with me. And, I had no desire to watch The Pussycat Dolls reality show.

(While I’m at it, does anyone think Tyra Banks needs to ease up on the “When I was a model,” stories? I mean, I love Tyra. She’s great. Surely I’m the only one who’s annoyed by this, right?)


I did watch The Wedding Bells, because David E. Kelly’s writing at the beginning of a TV series is da’ bomb. (Season One of Ally McBeal will ALWAYS be among my favorites!) But, as much as I wanted to, I just couldn’t get into the show. It seemed too . . . oh, what’s the word? Obvious? I’m going to give it another chance, since some of the promos did seem hilarious. And I like weddings!

Hmm . . . maybe these are all signs that I need to stop watching so much TV.

Time to write . . . and NOT watch ANTM!
