Curly Twirly... [Feb. 26th, 2004|06:23 pm]
Miss Von Trapp
[Mood |self-obsessed...(critically)]
[Music |Bauhaus : Spirit]

I have two very very curly natural tight ringlets at the nape of my neck, whereas the rest of my hair is just plain wavy...why is that??

Irritating.

I'm off to theatre in 10 minutes, and I've put my hair up in a chignon so that it doesn't get in the way when I'm working...it's almost down to my arse!!

Ok. Just thought I'd have a grumble online lol!!

I have those curly things too. Most people who see them tell me they're adorable, so I wouldn't worry too much. :D

All the Nick I have is Murder Ballads, but I sure enjoy that one!

Oh no, I was stood on there at 6am on a Sunday with a friend watching hot air balloons drifting past, before going to this craft fair on the Downs - easily the most enjoyable day I've had in the past couple of years.

i have curly thingies too... but, my hair in general is pretty damn curly... and, i have a skunk-spot on one side of my hair, too... which doesn't show anymore because i dye the fuck out of my hair... but, if i let it all grow out - amongst the red there would be this odd streak of very curly (obscenely so) white hair... hmmm.

A white streak? That's rather cool in a Bride of Frankenstein kinda way!!

Here's a confession: I'm naturally ash blonde...

*shock horror*

Used to be dirty blonde all over and have almost white streaks at the front all summer where it bleached in the sunlight...I HATED IT!!!

So I dyed it black when I was 16...

eh... i never thought it was cool when i was a kid... and, it kind of never came back the way it was prior to my first experiments with manic-panic color dyes... punk-rock red, blazin' blue... you know you do enough fucked up shit to your hair and it never grows back the same...

but - if i can ever get the punk rock red out of my hair i'm going platnium blonde with lavender tips/streaks... very cool... and, i have to grow my hair out some so that i can straighten it... then cut the ends so they are all choppy and pointy... sublime. my perfect punk rock hair... :)

of course - now i'm stuck with this red-blondish mop of curls... but, hey - someone told me the other day that i looked like a non-virginal, tattooed, smoking version of molly ringwald... i'm unsure if that is a compliment or not.

*MEH*

why am i awake? i feel horrid.
