ohmygod I am a *GIRL* again.  

I had my brows and upper lip waxed, and I bought bras, and I got my hair done. And the bras are shiny and silky and the best-fitting bras I've EVER bought, and they were on SALE! For $6.99 each! And my hair is, oh my god, my hair is the *cutest* *thing* *ever*! I wish I could show you all. It's dark dark dark, but with skunky platinum streaks, just like I've always wanted--I've asked at least three different stylists for this, and it's the first time anyone's got it right. I'm so jazzed. I'M SO CUTE! And you know I don't say that lightly. *g*

(Some of you may recall my last cut. The cut of horror. The cut that made me cry like a little bitch. This is a karmic 180.)

I don't inform you of these things to brag, but to give heart to everyone who, like me, occasionally fears bra shops and hair salons, as places that have innocent-looking bunnies with MIGHTY TEETH lurking in their corners. But there were no Monty Pythonesque Terror Bunnies today. It was all good. And so you too must go forth and brave the malls of America. I command it! And have some Godiva.

It was so gorgeous out today. Tomorrow I'm going to call my trainer and get my work-outs back on track. And maybe have lunch with anaxila if I can winkle her out of her office. It's like prying a stubborn clam up from the sand. Get out of the sand, Amy! Come have lunch with me tomorrow!

What more is there to say? Oh...Spike! Xander! Spike!

That sounds like so much fun! I actually am one of those who fears grooming of the feminine sort... I like my sweats and ponytail, thanks very much -_- But perhaps I will take courage from your brave example and venture into the frightening wilderness! o.O

Ooh, yes, the hair sounds like much of the goodness. And as someone who lives in her runners and cords, and who just dropped a cash-bomb on some floaty skirts and ridiculously pretty heels, I sympathise heartily. *squeals and twirls, with extra girlishness*

I wish I could see your hair, it sounds fab!

Bra shops should have a fandom. I still have a crush on the mad old lady who first got my size right - after nearly five years of wrong sizes.

That's...that's not fair! I've never found a bra that's fit for less than what I make an hour -- and yes, as I've become more gainfully employeed, bras have gone up in price.

I am dying to see your hair (heh, sorry, excuse me). I have Roots, myself now, and need to decide what to do next, other than the old reliable of ignoring it until I have really long unsightly roots.

And waxing! Sheesh, you went all the way.

I missed you at the bash. I understand waking up feeling unsocial, but I wish the desire to show off your hair had trumped the other. Miss you!
