Things you may want to ask before.....

..getting your hair dyed pink...uh... fuchsia....

1.  Just what is your hairdresser's description of "pink"?  Cotton candy?  That color right next to purple..only redder?  And ..neon??

2.  How long will it last? HOW many shampoos????

3. Will I have anything in my closet I can wear that will not clash with pink/ fuchsia hair?{nope}

4. If the above answer is "no"..do I purchase a whole new wardrobe based on hair color? {again..uh..no..}

5. Is Ringling Bros.- Barnum & Bailey in town?

6. How old am I?  really..???

7. Could I ever, ever-in-this-world-ever-even-remotely-ever-ever-be indeed be mistaken for Kary Perry in steroids, or Lady Gaga emphasis on the Gag.. or Bozo's older sister?

8. Am I willing to have pitiful, sad looks by complete strangers when walking down the street?

9. Am I willing to scare babies?

10. Am I willing to scare Mr. B???

11. Will it stain the linens, clothes, bathtub???

12. Will is scare the pups??

So..Mr. B, being the sweetie {re: fibber} that he is kept telling me he "sorta" liked it..he said it fit with my face {Wha?}  and that he really {sorta}..liked it..

However, he keeps, to this day, telling me he "liked" my bald-chemo-round-head..so I must question his taste somewhat..

Yesterday, after the Saturday functions, after  he went to go shopping,  I drove to Walgreen's and did this:


Still not the real me..but at least I don't clash with my existing wardrobe :-)

{ I always wanted to be that Aunt..you know, like the one in  the movie Twister? All artsy-crafty-odd-friendly-loving-odd-loving-odd-crazy-odd-fun-will-make-you-feel-at-home-odd?  Yeah..I think I may be getting closer..}

I might have just kept it for a while and tell people it was part of your celebration of Halloween! That way I wouldn't have had to kill my hairdresser!!

But platinum/champagne works too....

I'm surprised it colored so well. I would have thought it would have taken awhile.

I think it is so awesome that you did it in the first place.

I missed all the fun. I've been kind of out of action that past few weeks. I'm in DC now but will be coming home on Sat. Can't decide if that's good or bad. :)
