Camhooring my new haircut [20070729|19:53]

Also, I can kill you with my brain.


I've been looking for an excuse to title a camwhore photo with that line for a while. I figured that starting work on the extended Cassini mission this week qualified.

Very kind of you, especially considering the hoodie and the lack of makeup. Thanks!

Thank you. I went to work one day when I had hay fever, and I got told that due to the puffiness, I finally had normal-sized eyes. The cheek!

Adorable! Can you still do the flippy curly thing with it?

It dries naturally into the flippy curly style - the look in this pic can only be achieved via blow-drying, or air-drying whilst sitting very, very still.

You should see my mother. She didn't get any until she was over fifty, and even now I think she has like, four tiny crow's feet around her eyes.

I like the hair.

Actually, I deeply envy the ability to pull off a smooth bob style like that, for alas, I am cursed with curly, light, flyaway hair...


C.
Actually, you're looking very pretty in general in this picture. :-)

Honestly, I don't think many people do have that sleek, perfect magazine-style hair naturally. After years of experimentation, I've finally hit on the routine that gives you the closest approximation. First, get regular haircuts like you're supposed to. Every four to six weeks keeps the split ends away. Second, find the right combination of shampoo and conditioner. It is very unlikely that you will be able to achieve this with cheap products. In particular, be prepared to splash out on an expensive moisturizing conditioner, and to use it as suggested (leaving it on for 3-5 minutes before washing out). Third, never wash your hair in hot water. Tepid is better if you can stand it in the shower. Fourth, find a heavy gel or pomade and spread it evenly over your towel-dried hair. Do the ends independently. Fifth, and this is the one I can't bring myself to do every day because I get bored, blow-dry to style.

Finally, thank you! :-)

I have a similarly captioned picture, though I look more mean and war-painted.

Of course you do. BTW, you may have missed this post. I'm going to be in the familial abode next month for a few days. Any chance of making mischief one (or more) of those evenings?

Ah, thank you. This is one of the reasons I like my hairdresser so much. I can just go in and wave my hands around a bit and say something like, "Make it shorter," and she knows exactly what I want.

Enceladus Monkey

It was in an attempt to research the identity of the familiar-looking monkey in your picture (no- not the one with the cool mission, killer 'do and lickable eyes!) that I came across the sock monkey in today's post. For every salve, a rash; the universe forever finds its balance.

Mr. Johnson is well endowed. I'm afraid he might make Julius (Paul Frank's monkey) feel a bit inferior.
