Tonight I’m headed into town to do some shopping; simple, really. I need some Rubbermaid containers for books I need to take home to Moose Jaw. I also need to buy a few groceries. I know, you’re excited for me.
For some reason my iPhone deleted four of my playlists. I had playlists made for 1970-1974. It’s happened before but don’t have my iPhone set to auto-sync with iTunes so I’m not sure what’s going on.
I walked to work this morning and it was about -20C. Freezing! My legs were so cold. I have to remember to pick up some longjohns while I’m out tonight.
In the middle of writing this I was able to score a last minute hair appointment. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get there in time. “Curse my metal body!”. Remember when I had my hair streaked blonde? Well that wasn’t my smartest move. The peroxide was left on my hair too long and now, months later, all the hair that was streaked blonde is breaking off.
My hair is about half-way down my back so I’m going to get about five inches cut off. Remember when I got those 1976 era Farah Fawcett flicks? Well this time I’m going 1979 and getting a long bob which was the most popular style back then. My hair should fall a few inches below my shoulders.
The feathered hairstyle was still hugely popular with teenagers (boys and girls) well into the early 80’s. For older women though, feathered hair was not seen as very professional so the trend was towards more conservative, low-maintenance styles. Debbie Harry of the punk band Blondie made the long bob an iconic hairstyle. Shelley Long also wore the 80’s version of the long-bob (with bangs) during the early years of Cheers.
I prefer to wear my hair long but it’s necessary that I try to fix as much of the damage as I can. The most obvious fix for damaged hair is scissors. It won’t be too bad I guess. Within six months my hair should be back close to where I usually like to wear it.
