I... don't whip my hair back and forth.

I cut my hair. Nine inches!

It's so short! I had this sort of haircut when I was 18, but that was almost ten years ago, and I've gotten a hair (see what I did there?) less impulsive since then. Although, thank THE LORD ABOVE that I never went through with the tattoo of a bunny with fairy wings I wanted back then. THANK THE KIND LORD ABOVE. Who did I think I was, a garden nymph? Beatrix Potter? Maid Marion?

Anyway, I was finally ready to go for it again, and my dear Josh at Wicked Salon in St. Petersburg made it happen. Now I'm pleased as a goat with a bowl of tasty paper. Say it with me, ladies. FIVE MINUTES IN THE MORNING.

Reactions have ranged from women clapping in abject glee as I walk down the halls at work, to guys going, "snort, sniff, shrug." But I love it, and it's inspiring me to do 1960s Twiggy eyeliner all the time, which is fun. Plus, Stuart the dog still recognizes me, and that's all that really matters.

Once again, thanks to my common law bro, Pete, for the pics. I'm gonna take advantage of his photography talents at all times. That's my springtime resolution.

I have one problem now, though. How to whip my hair back and forth?


  1. I love it! It's been so long since I've had the courage to cut my hair in any way that anyone would notice. I'm thinkin' about doing a little choppin' in the summer or fall. You've inspired me. :D

  2. Thanks! It's nice to feel the breeze again.

  3. Thanks! I love your blog name, too. I bet I'm shorter than you. :)
