Oh, you pervs.  If it was THAT, I'd go for 8 at least.

I got my hair cut today.  Total impulse move.  I was at Harris Teeter to use  my super double coupons up to $2 (today's the last day.  And, yes, I probably bought some things I didn't need.  Although I don't see how any right thinking person could pass up yet another bottle of Tabasco for 19 cents).  Great Clips had the employee who obviously drew the short straw standing in the bike lane with a sign advertising "Haircut sale!  $6.99!"

I haven't had my hair cut in at least three years.  To say the ends were getting gnarly is a hideous understatement.

So I asked what getting just the split ends cut off would look like.  Then I asked about five inches.  Settled on seven.

This is the shortest my hair has been since my first year of college, when I somehow thought getting my hair cut short would hurt my soon-to-be-ex fiance for ditching me to meet his lover at the local gay bar (he DID love my hair.  And yes, 18 year old Alicia was angry, impulsive, and frequently misguided).

[Funny thing:  said ex and I are on FB and are pretty close.  The first thing he did when he saw me announce that I cut my hair was pm me and ask  if Kent had come out as gay as opposed to bi and was I "rage grooming" again.  The thing that sucks about growing older is the past your friends can call you on]

AND I LOVE IT!  It looks so much thicker and healthier.  It's all bouncy and slightly wavy and I am surely going to hell for vanity because I checked out my reflection in every store window I passed on the way home.

I saw an ad the other day for a "dark denim blue" hair dye.  While I am still loving the purple, I'm half tempted.  I'm just not sure how it would take on my hair, and what it would look like with my skin tone.  But I do love the color.

Yeah, I think the current amount of shit in my life has tripped a trigger.  Work seems to think it owns me.  Kent seems to think that's okay, and that I should be happy about staying late and going in whenever they crook a finger because money and job security.

Never mind that I might need a day of quiet so I can continue doing my job.  Never mind that I arrive early and stay late.  Never mind that I am starting to outstrip you in hours.

No one is going to take care of me but me.  No one is going to pamper me but me.

So....new hair!

I don't check myself out in the mirror after a haircut, but man, I'll sit there and ruffle the stubble on the back of my head all day long. XD

And you gotta take care of yourself, because no one else will. <3

(And "dark denim blue" sounds amazing. @3@ I don't know if I could pull it off either, but holy cats...)

I'm incredibly pale and my skin has a blue undertone, so I'm guessing the effect on me would be...cadaver-esque?
