hair and superstitions

this comic displays pretty much my general outlook on life and how i view things. it's true.

i feel like i've run a electric sander across my upper lip. whenever i have a cold, it never ceases to amaze me just how quickly the human body can produce snot.

my hair seems to have suddenly gotten long enough that i actually have to brush it. this somewhat saddens me. some part of me got a silly joy out of being able to make a statement that i hadn't brushed my hair in SIX MONTHS. or however long. actually, i think around the first of march, it will have been a year since i hacked my hair off and went blonde. granted, i was blonde only two months. durned upkeeping. durned hair falling outting. i'm still a long ways from my long tresses, but it's at least to a point where i can feasibly grow it out without having to race in to get my mullet shorn off at least once a month. A-line bob, it is. dark auburn, it is. i really need new pictures.

what do i like about having short short hair, other than the fact i don't have to brush it? easy to style. i never did my hair when i had it long, i had two styles: up. down. that was it. i love how it feels when i run my hands through my really short hair, especially when it just dries after washing, and it still has a slight dampness to it. you don't have to worry about finding long hairs everywhere as much. you have SO much more flexibility when it comes to dying your hair. if you don't like it? you can change it. if you fry your hair? it'll all be grown out in a month, anyway.

something sweet_tiffany82 pointed out to me, was that her family had a superstition that whenever you would hiccup, it meant you were growing. i'll list a few my family had, and then i want you to list yours, as well:

- if your ears are ringing, someone is talking about you. right ear, it's something good. left ear, it's all nasty talk.
- palms itch? right hand, you'll get money, left hand, you're going to lose it.
- shudder? someone just walked over the future site of your grave.
- for good luck, you must always put your right shoe on first, right arm in your coat first, right sock on first, etc. if you do the left side, it will bring bad luck. (my family didn't do this, but i checked out a book on superstitions in the 8th grade that said this. i went to a skating rink during the time i had this checked out, and put my left skate on first. i said 'pah, it's just a superstition!' and got home... to discover my mother was in the hospital. i've religiously put on my right side stuff first ever since, although the two were most likely not related. call me silly.)

You hair looks lovly I thought when you siad short you ment short like guy hair short, short like that one designer on while you were out.

Lets see super stistions:
We had ears burning someone was talking aboot you.
Never go to sleep mad because you'll have a crappy dream and next day you'll be sour.

Drinking water from the bathroom was bad and would make you sick.

Can't think of more, back to work for me!

i would so love to have hair that short, i love how my hair feels short, i love the not upkeep of it... *swoon* but i figured i'd grow my hair back out to appease my family...

.... at least for a little while.

and i can think of situations where going to bed angry DID have an effect on dreams... huh.

*pumps fist*

and no worries about a couple of hours, sometimes it takes up to 6 months for me to get back.

i am the queen of procrastination.

Thats generally a good attitude to have. I try to think that way and most of the time succeede.

like a comedian i saw once said that he always tries to picture thee worst possible scenerio, and no matter what, he's always impressed and happy with the turnout.

I think Ben Franklin said plan for the worst and hope for the best.
But then again, what did that get him. He is dead after all.
Feb. 4th, 2005 05:02 pm (UTC)
which may be a good thing... can you imagine how horrible he would smell if he were still around?
Feb. 7th, 2005 12:21 pm (UTC)
That and the eating brains thing would put a damper on his return..
Apr. 17th, 2005 05:33 am (UTC)
Though I'm sure he would still have his posse. Can you imagine the whole CREW from 1776 running around and eating brains and digging up graves?
Apr. 19th, 2005 08:53 pm (UTC)
Yo, the 1776 possie yo!

and i spose they would be allied with the crips, since they hate RED coats and all.

sad, i know, but it's the best i can come up with before coffee.
Aug. 24th, 2005 05:52 am (UTC)
Its not bad. One could make some sort of alagory with bloods and crips and all, but Im too tired myself.
Feb. 2nd, 2005 12:50 pm (UTC)
Ah! So that'd be my state of mind explained.
Also pics of you would be good, as the hotness makes for transatlantic excitement!
Feb. 4th, 2005 11:38 am (UTC)
hee hee. hotness. transatlantic excitement... hee hee. never thought i'd hear THOSE words combined ;)

i will def see what i can do. if i can figure out a way to take pictures with my webcam, that'd be groovy, too.
Feb. 13th, 2005 07:26 pm (UTC)
I'm waaaiting! :)
Apr. 17th, 2005 05:33 am (UTC)
hey, i posted pictures days ago, mister!

hmmm... I don't think our family really had any superstitions -- plenty of paranoia, though. The cars were always locked (including while driving), the house doors were always locked, and when my parents went out (for a walk or something) there was a password for us to let them in. They said never to believe any stranger who came to the door telling us that something had happened to our parents unless that stranger gave us the passwords.

my family was very paranoid, as well, but i think they were too lazy to be effectively so. like, for example, mom was always convinced we were going to be kidnapped and killed, but we sort of never got around to actually coming up with passwords, or coming up with alternative ways out of the house in the event of fire, etc.

dont forget that putting your shoes on the table means someone in your family will die.
Feb. 4th, 2005 11:40 am (UTC)
OOH YES! how could i forget? i remember mom FREAKING OUT on several occasions because we put shoes on the table or countertop.
Feb. 2nd, 2005 10:04 pm (UTC)
wow you look so different in both those pictures. I like both styles. You could always get wigs :)
Feb. 4th, 2005 11:40 am (UTC)
hee hee! i certainly could :) that would make for ease in styling, at least!
