Random Tuesday

I woke up to the sounds of heavy spring rain but by the time I left the house for work, it had calmed to a drizzle. The sun peeked through the clouds by late morning so I went out during the latter half of my lunch hour for a walk.

My office is located near a neighbourhood of million dollar homes so I like to walk and daydream about one day living in such a home. This one here is my favourite:

It's certainly not the largest home in the neighbourhood but there's an English charm to its formal manicured hedges that I love.

Also, my hair is beginning to annoy me. This is the longest it's been maybe ever and since it grows super-fast I'm seriously due for a cut. My stylist has been on maternity leave since January and I called the salon today to see if they had any news on when she would be back. When I saw her last in December, she said she might take 6 months instead of the full year off, so I thought I'd just wait it out. But my hair has grown 6 inches since then and as they don't know yet when she'll be back, I can't wait another month or 2.

So, I've decided I must take action: I am going to cheat on my stylist. The same stylist who took me from long to short to long to super-short to long again in our 6 year relationship. I hopped on the internet for salon recommendations and reviews and made an appointment for this Sunday afternoon.

I feel guilty already.

My super-short cut was styled after Halle Berry's signature 'do - very short and textured in the back...only I had long-ish bangs in the front that swept to the side. I never had so much fun with hair product! It was too high maintenance though - I'd spend about 30 minutes every morning styling it, plus, I had to get it cut every 4 weeks, which got to be rather expensive (btw, why are women charged more than men?) so that cut lasted about a year before I decided to grow it out again. Now it's mid-back in length and I'm thinking of lopping off maybe 4 or 5 inches...nothing crazy since I'll be sitting in a stranger's chair.

youre talking to me about men's hair cuts? that's rich. did you see my profile pic? i haven't paid for a haircutin about 12 years. i started cutting to supershort in college, and have never wanted to wear it any differently. i'm afraid at this point...its not really any option. the stubble on top is a lot thinner than it used to be. i'm so lucky to have such a nicely shaped head. =)
