baah humbug.

*sneezes literally fifteen times*

okay, okay, i think i'm finally coming to terms with the fact that my sinuses are not acting like this because of stirring up dust around the house as i was vacuuming and such while i didn't have internet access yesterday. we shall see how well i am after taking an allergy pill and being out of the house all day.

so yesterday, i pulled my computer out, unplugged everything, and pulled out the harddrive. eek! it's like LAVA. so i let it cool down completely, plug it in, and hook everything back up, hoping that i put everything back together correctly. HUZZAH! theeeeeere's that hard drive! my music is SAVED! what is this? no sound? no INTERNET?!? ... the HELL?!?

sick of messing with it, and realizing that there was stuff i needed to do around the house, i figured i would wait until later.

this morning, i rooted around in the back (i should take a picture of my desk so you could see how difficult this is to do) and realized that i had stuff the internet cord..somewhere random, pretty much.

SO I'M BACK! WOOO! my sound isn't, but i'll leave that for another day.


so i got my hairs cut on friday.

ugh. i went in, saying i wanted it in a-line (much like raven's in this icon). she hacked about 5" off of my hair.... but no a-line. it's just very VERY dorkily short. too short for an a-line. too short to even pull it back. GAH! (yes, yes, i have pictures for yous, will upload them ... some other time.)

you see, i'm thirty years old. i've gotten many a haircut in my lifetime. but never NEVER have i been terrified of my haircutting lady. seriously. she was in THEE worst possible mood while she was doing my hair. she would bark questions or statements at me. (come on back. do you know what you want? sit. take your glasses off.) followed by intense silence where she would glare at the back of my head. every attempt i made to try to alleviate her sour mood was met by silence. eventually, she started asking questions "did you just recently dye your hair? it's dry." "so how's your weekend" etc., that sounded like she felt she needed to ask the typical mundane questions, not because she was really interested in what my answer would be. because she was making me nervous, i would shyly answer the question, which would be met by an angry "WHAT?!?" that would cause my nervousness to increase.

the whole thing was beyond nerve-wracking that i hurried and paid and left very quickly, not noticing it was SO not what i wanted until hours later.

and now i get to wait SEVERAL months for it to grow out. mehinks i should just shave it.


pattie's birthday/going away party was last night at mojo's. coworker jessalyn met us here and we galloped on over. i've been to mojo's many-o-time, but last night was a really weird night. we get there and pattie and her family are sitting around a long table. as four of us had just walked in, i said that maybe we should take the long table behind them. so i turn around to put my stuff down, and two people race over and sit there first, glaring at me to try to take their spot. unkaaaay. so i go over to the other side of the table everyone is sitting at, and see a bag sitting there. i ask her husband if the seats were taken, and a big bear of a man across the bar says "you had BEST not try to take my seat! *glareglareglare*" i wave my apologies and go to the complete OPPOSITE side of the bar from where he was sitting, but still sort of in line with the table, and sit next to the wall. (the man proceeded to glare at me the remainder of the evening whenever i came within 10 feet of him.) daniel and i went to get drinks, but were having to stand to the side of the bar, as i SO didn't want to block Bear Man's words on the karaoke screen. several people cut in line before us. we kept talking about how awkward the whole bar was that night, how almost frightened we were to be there. it was also massively busy, something mojo's is never. took a TRILLION pictures, which will be up for your viewing pleasure... someday.

*edit* my loverly faetal was making sketches last night and ended up doing a rendering of the glarglareglare guy as he was singing. as someone said, he was angry at something and was taking it out on our ears. now, i'm all for the spirit of singing karaoke, that it's not about talent, it's about FUN! F.U!...... N! the guy was probably about 45 and SCREAMING songs by tool, creed, etc. as loud as he could into the mic, and was glaring at everyone as he did so. so for your viewing pleasure, here's Seat Man.

bacci spent the last 20 minutes staring at a painting on the wall. too bad she stopped when i reached for my camera.

"Happy" and "Monday" should never be in the same sentence...

Love the fact that you guys are going out as the Titans! But how are you going to do your hair now?
Oct. 17th, 2005 01:26 pm (UTC)
i'll end up doing what andrea told me to do in the first place: just wear my cowl up all night.


i want to take a picture of this random giant chunk she took out of one of the sides that prevents me from being able to even pull the sides back.

Yay for working computers!

I hate getting bad vibes from the hairdresser. I can remember the worst haircut I ever got. I couldn't get in to my usual salon, so I tried Famous Hair. I cried when I got home because she cut against my natural curls and my hair looked dry and permed. I had to get it cut next week at my normal place.

Aren't people weird about seating arrangements? It's like, geez, why don't you just piss all around the table you want to control if it's so important?

i was especially shocked that he was so hell bent on keeping those two chairs (one for him, one for his bag) because the entire rest of the GIGANTIC table was taken up by pattie and her family and friends.

there were a trillion other places to sit (at least, when we got there.) what was funny was that because of him and his territorialness, we ended up creating our own table in the middle of nowhere. i can't wait for everyone to see the pictures (and to see them myself, as they ran off with my camera for awhile!)

I sneezed like 15 times (really) too this morning. It's a sneezy day.

Seat man sounds like an asshole. You should have kicked him in the nads.
Oct. 17th, 2005 01:25 pm (UTC)
when i say he was a bear of a man, i really mean it: he was like 6'5" and a gazillion pounds (not much of it fat). he was really scary.

I'm glad you didn't get the A-line or whatever hair cut. There's this bitch here at the office, and yes bitch is the only way to describe her, asside from her charming personality, she's blonde, super thin, tall, and has that hair cut. However, it looks ridiculous on her. I think she got her hair done again this weekend, but I'll never forget how bad the other haircut looked on her. So be HAPPY she didn't do your hair right. And...umm...don't shave it...just dye it or something. Put wild blond streaks in it...then you'll be able to see how fast it's growing........ . . . . . . . .I don't want to be at work.

what's funny is that it's been a year since i accidentally got the bowl cut and hacked all my hair off into spikes so that i could deal with it, and it JUST got back to pretty much the exact length it was when i got angry and spiked it.

and i got some black dye so i can put some black streaks in it. maybe some blonde to go with it.

I really hate it when hair people mess up people's hair. Soryr that Happened to you. Nononononooooooooo shaving of the head! *shakes head* Nope just not right, everyone will look and you and your lovely smile then get sad because they'd think you had cancer... not good nor funny.

When you go back the output for audio is always green, well since the 90s where they enacted the PC 97 spec and came up with standardized colorcoded PC parts. make sure your system isn't getting too hot anymore, if it is see if you've got dust or cat hair in fans vents etc etc, heat can kill computer parts, even a hard drive.

Until I have something good to say :P

this old post inspired me to dink with all the hair color i bought, so it shall be interesting to see the outcome, i think. if anything goes too awry, it's only hair.

i just hate the fact that hair color tends to fry the scalp, meaning i'll have dandruff for the next two weeks. bah.

I hate really surly people that are doing something for me. I've had a few nasty hair dressers..and those were for perms in the past so an hour and a half spent with a grumpy hairdresser is just scary. I've also gotten the 'extremely pretty and popular in HS- someone who would shun me if she actually knew me' girls too. The ones that ask me personal questions and when I answer, there's this stunned silence like "wow she's weird".. I love my hair dresser now.
Oct. 20th, 2006 03:02 am (UTC)
ha ha, that's awesome. it's so hard to find a good hairdresser, and i'm so cheap when it comes to hair cuts and stuff that i'll probably just keep going to the same place that i've been going to for almost 3 years now. the angry lady thankfully no longer works there, so it's all people that speak almost no english.
Oct. 17th, 2005 05:44 pm (UTC)
Was she in a salon? You might be able to go back and complain to the manager about how horrible it is and see if he (she?) can get one of the other stylists to fix it for you. Or at least do something to it to make you not hate it.
Oct. 20th, 2006 03:03 am (UTC)
i did end up going back and complaining, almost in tears - they knew instantly who i was talking about and fixed it for free, which consisted of them hacking it all to short spikes again, which is what i asked them to do. what's funny is that a year later, my hair has grown back out to about the same length that it was when the lady destroyed it. heh.

So thats swhat happens when you clean the house, ya get the sneezies!

Ohhhhh my! Im sorry about the haircut experience! I cant say much about haircuts right now because I havent gotten one in over 2 yrs and now my hair is close to my arse....

Huzzah is such a fun word :)
Oct. 18th, 2005 05:29 am (UTC)
First things first, I love your icon. Of all the Teen Titans (from the show, not the comic I'm afraid), Raven is my favorite even though Beast Boy seems more like my personality.

Second, I'd like to say I added you, cause alariya told me to, and I'm rather glad she did. I like what I've seen so far.

Third. . .um. . .Hiya!
Oct. 20th, 2006 03:04 am (UTC)
i'm glad that you added me! :) and i love YOUR icon!

I HATE getting my hair cut for this very reason. It's always a crapshoot whether or not I'll end up getting some assy haircut that I don't want and end up feeling wussy for not complaining. So I feel your pain.
Oct. 20th, 2006 03:06 am (UTC)
where i've been going for the last 3 years, where this also happened oddly, they've usually done an outstanding job of it, especially since it's only $12 a haircut. they're generally pretty good at giving me good suggestions, too, though the last trim i got, it was almost a constant lecture as to the fact i desperately need to grow my bangs out, and oh how much better it will look when i do!
Oct. 18th, 2005 07:00 am (UTC)
dear lord.

what kind of comp do you have?

lol..bitch must not love her job. my hair stylist is friendly :)

awwwwwwwww!!! Bacci staring at a painting! I love that about cats, I think they have stronger spirits than other animals. They... sense things, understand things.
Oct. 20th, 2006 03:07 am (UTC)
it's very very true. they have such a deep wisdom about the world around them... not to mention their beauty and grace and... outright WEIRDNESS at times.

but with all that wisdom and deep spirit-ness, i wish bacci would get smart enough to NOT eat plastic.
