Why I needs a hairs cut





Although it /is/ in great shape, still...I'm too old to sport this long do, so I need it cut. I've chickened out twice, but will make my next appointment. My regular guy is leaving Ostrosky's so I'm kinda bummed.

Scary NEW webcam screen caps, so my apologies. Kinda fuzzy, etc. But you get it. ;ppp

That's a prob now. I think I'm just going to go for a trim. Too many people in real life are all OH NOEEEEEEEEEES DON'T CUT IT! I love my hair, but it's a nightmare keeping up with.

I need you to BE HERE so I'd go! lol

I like your hair both ways -- long and short (for different reasons). You do have /great/ hair, so it's kind of a shame to whack it all off!

express jeans? man, aren't those like $99 for a pair that'll fade in a week, even if they're already pre-faded?

They have sales!!! Plus, Express jeans make your ass look good :) LOL.

i just remember the ex-wife buying a bunch of stuff at express, and it all like faded after two warshes. maybe their stuff is better made. i just remember thinking "don't get mad at me for buying a $50 book that'll last a lifetime and then some when you're spending $99 on a pair of jeans that'll be made into cut-offs in two months b/c they've faded so bad."
none_too_subtle
Mar. 2nd, 2008 05:17 pm (UTC)
If you take care of them, they'll last. My most recent pair are Express, and they're gonna last (I'll make 'em) because they were expensive. They're the only jeans that fit me now *sobs*. They do look good, however, so you konw. I'd never turn them into cutoffs. But then, I'd never bitch about buying books (or anything) for that matter.

Just got mine done today. Nothing drastic, that was last time. She did cut the front layers shorter though. Instead of blending back, they are a few inches shorter than the side and back layers.

Ooooooo you should take pictures!!!

Mine was drastic about a year ago, but only because it'd previously been SO long (or as long as it is now). I have layers, so it appears longer/fuller than it really is. I do want to go drastic short because of the time it would save me. But EVERY.TIME.I.MENTION.IT someone in real life says "OMG NO, YOUR HAIR IS BEAUTIFUL". I suppose my hair is probably my best (or one of my best) attributes. I'm blessed with some decent locks. Still--it's too time-consuming. I like the layered-to-the-face look, and would've kept that. The back would've been the difference. Right now, I'm leaning towards doing it myself (as I've oft done in the past).

Thanks (crappy new webcam, tho). I look SO MUCH better in the face with the new weight gain. Any wrinkles or "tells" of my aging seriously vanished once I became healthy. It's great!! :>

The one I want is a LogiTech, but the one I have is an el cheapo. The one I want is...well, another el cheapo ($50+) but a better quality one.

You have a delicately beautiful face that can take long hair - you don't look old, there's no sagging or bagging of flesh, and I think a bit of length suits you well. Not a stern crop - but perhaps a kind of pixie cut? Something a bit feathery and feminine? It's hard to describe what I'm 'seeing' - basically what you've got but chin length at the front, going a little bit longer to the back, with layers for fullness and curl.

If you seriously think your hair is your best feature, that's great - it IS pretty - and because it grows fast, you can have a little play with it!
none_too_subtle

I say it's my best feature based on the feedback I've always received from other people (women mainly...but guys, too). I've always been blessed with good hair, and it grows out super fast. I think that's why I'm not totally freaking out at the prospect of cutting it.

I agree that it needs to be soft around my face. You're right -- I'm not having to deal with wrinkles or saggy skin (yet! LOL), but I swear that kind of thing must slip up on people, because I know of no person who thinks "this is happening to me" despite evidence of it. Hahaha. :) I /ask/ other people, just to make sure I'm not losing my mind (plus I still get carded...that always makes me feel good these days :D).

I was, however, thinking about something really short in the back (I have a long, thin neck), and something long and feathery in the front. Sort of like Victoria Beckham (I think...). I just want something that doesn't eat up 30 minutes of my time each day, you know? Gads.

Wrinkles and sags? Yeh, I've been acquiring them for a few years now. It doesn't really bother me, it's just part of being 54. I've never been one to agonise about my appearance anyway, and the lengths some people go to, to disguise their ages, just horrify me.
I'm working out of dyeing my hair to cover the grey, and wrinkles? Feh, they're there, that's all.
The only thing I WOULD like would be a tummy-tuck to get rid of the Honourary Swag of Motherhood that weighs me down something 'orrible.

I work with a woman who's 65, and her skin is absolutely gorgeous. She looks SO YOUNG, and wears no makeup (or very little...just like me). I no longer wear a base or powder at /all/...it cakes up the face, and makes you look wrinkled even when you're not. That goes for expensive products, as well. I take good care of my skin, and I can see the results. I have a feeling that it's going to happen FAST...I'll wake up one day and BOOM. There will be signs of aging.

You look GREAT for 50! I had no idea you were over 45!

As for the tummy, you could do what I'm doing -- get a rowing machine. It SERIOUSLY works out your abs, butt, legs, arms, back...but most certainly your abs. I'm so sore this morning! If you just did ab crunches for 15 minutes every day you could lose that. I lost all my weight three years after having the spawnlette, and thought I was going to wear BBW clothes forever. Not so. Just put my mind to it to GET IN SHAPE. Not LOSE WEIGHT. I think that makes all the difference. I'm just doing preventive maintenance on the 'ole bod by using this machine. It increases my metabolism, and this sleep problem I have is solved. :)

Yup, I should do a LOT more exercise to work on the gut. It's mostly fat and stretched skin, with a huge scar down the middle that I've had since I was three. I've lost 20 pounds in the past 9 months and most of it has come off my belly, so the loose skin needs to go now!
(Only another, erm, 60 pounds to go...)

Mar. 2nd, 2008 04:28 pm (UTC)
That's wonderful!!! You might require surgery to lose the skin, though. That's going to happen to me NOW, if I gain weight and then lose it again. I lost 100 lbs. 3 years after the spawnlette was born, but had no extra skin. Then again, I was younger. I'm afraid my skin won't be that forgiving this time, so that's why I got the exercise machine - to avoid trouble in my future (in many ways). Gotta stay healthy above all things.

Congrats on losing that much! You must be really committed to it. :)

I wish I WAS really committed, then I'd have lost a lot more by now! I got down six pounds lighter than I am right now last October, then got complacent, and I've been struggling to lose more than a pound or two ever since. I've been seriously obese for over 20 years, but haven't ever seriously lost weight before, so the skin is still FAIRLY elastic... but I would love to lose the huge scar. It's not even symmetrical - a great vertical slash slightly off-centre, from navel to bikini-line! Dates from emergency appendectomy when I was four...

My stomach muscles aren't too bad really - they're just under a thick layer of fat! Hey ho, on with the diet and exercise.

Ah ha.

Well, if it's any consolation, I lost too much and became GROSSLY sick because of it (almost died). Better to be slightly over than grotesquely under.

You have to just commit to doing it. Seriously, I took a class on procrastination a few years' ago, and learned a whole different way of living. It was focused on the workplace, but taught you how to stop in all areas of your life (procrastinating...not stop what you're working towards). Just like this morning -- first thing I did after getting out of bed was hit the rowing machine. I committed 15 minutes to doing it, and will do it when I get home, too. In a month, I'll be TIGHT! :D :D You can do eeeet!

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
