so here’s the deal, internet!
last summer i had bright orange hair (think: lelu from 5th element). although it was fun and different, it was A LOT of upkeep and let’s be honest, i don’t have the time or patience to be dying my hair every two weeks when there is reality TV to be watched, and sitting around on my butt to be done. what i’m trying to say here, is i’m lazy. the dye burns my eyes, i’ve ruined just about every towel i own, and uh… did i mention i’m lazy?
so anyway, when i moved into me and andy’s house last summer (holy hell guys, it’s already been 6 months since andy and i broke up), i dyed my hair black-brown, and keeping up with it has been a total BITCH. i actually had 4-5 inches of roots grown in and i HATED seeing pictures/my reflexion in the mirror, because uh, i’m vain?
so i was perusing the aisles of my pharmacy whilst waiting for this month’s dose of prescription medication to be filled, and i saw a box of bleach and my heart set itself on fire and i totally HAD TO HAVE IT because i’m so sick of my dumb hair. not to mention i hate wearing black when my hair’s black because i totally feel like i’m stuck in the 9th grade and mindless self indulgence is my favourite band. and like, i’ve moved past that stage. sort of.
i decided to go light again before my brother’s wedding (where i plan to go back to my natural hair colour, most likely). also, this is why i’m not allowed in a pharmacy alone. i need an adult.
yes, i’m totally taking myspace pictures in the bathroom at work. HIRE ME! i’m an awesome employee.
this is a far more tame version of the lelu hair i had last year. this is a more conservative lelu, if you will. what lelu would look like if she were to get a job, wear some real clothing, and you know… live in the now.
and what the fuck? i actually kind of like it.
anyway, in other news, my friend stephen and i have been having a star trek vs. star wars battle. we decided to have a marathon and then discuss. so because of my illness i’ve been glued to the couch for like, 4 days, and we started our marathon on saturday.
TWELVE AND A HALF HOURS OF STAR TREK, NO BREAKS, YO!
we made it through the motion picture, the wrath of khan, the search for spock, the voyage home, the final frontier, and undiscovered country without a break! (other than a meat break, ovbs. and no that isn’t a code word for DOING IT, we totally took a break to consume bbq’ed meat). by hour 8 or 9 i felt my mind beginning to melt and i almost called it quits once or twice, but the 6th movie is the perfect place to pause off. we’re likely picking up again this weekend with movie number 7: generations! ohhhh picard, i’ve waited so long.
but for reals… have you had a star trek marathon?! maybe it’s the constant hours of banter between bones, kirk, and spock… but HOLY SHIT, it’s filled with comical GOLD. the voyage home was by far the funniest and that’s where i got hooked again.
i’m beginning to think stephen’s slowly getting sucked in. WHAT UP!
so that’s that. i had a mind-numbing sci-fi weekend and it was glorious.
as for tonight? i finally get internet & cable.
get into it.
