Weekly Update

Sad, I know. A weekly update. Pathetic.

Ah well. Next week we’ll return to your usual programming here at IMKH. Why? Because the show will be over. Done. Fin. And it’s kinda sad.

I’ve had very little time to sit on my couch and think of new useless and silly things to write about in the last few weeks. Why? Because I’ve been hanging out with the totally awesome people at the Starkville Community Theater almost every night. I’ll post about that later.

The hair is holding up well. I’ve invested (and I do mean invested) in the tiniest little flat iron you’ve ever seen. It allows me to have punk-rock hair everyday! My parents will see my hair tonight for the first time since I straightened it as they are driving up for the show. I wonder how they’ll react. I’ve had the curly hair for a really long time, like, my whole life and they’re the ones that gave it to me. I’ll report back on the parents’ opinion.

Since my parents are visiting this week, we went into panic cleaning mode. We went so far as to rip up the carpet in the living room and hallway area to replace it with laminate flooring. We have cats, you see, (and a dog) and the carpet had reached its limit in terms of wear in only three short years. And it was nasty. So we proceeded to replace it. Ourselves. Three days of work. I had to take off Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon just to get it all done. But it came out nice. I might post some pics of the process later.

I’ve got a couple ideas for posts to work out next week and I haven’t forgotten about the new instructional video.

Gotta get the ice beam to beat Mother Brain, Yo.

I’m in a band!

Actually I’m not but I could be with my new rock star hairdo. Check it.

For the first time in my life, I have straight(ish) hair. I’ve been thinking about doing this all summer and, well, I did it. This is not so much a Look At Me The Attention Whore post as a This Is An Important Life Event post.

The guy who does hair for the theater shows has a place in Columbus and he’s fabulous. Go to Jamie’s Salon and ask for Jansen (my bad if I misspelled that). Anyway, I talked to him a few nights ago at rehearsal and he said Come on in, I can totally do that.

So one of the other guys from the show, Lyle, was going to get his hair Jansenized too. I caught a ride with him and it was boys’ day at the salon.

It’s really different as I’ve never seen my hair like this before so it’s going to take some getting used to. I mean, I’ve only had insanely curly hair my whole life. Though the more I look at it, the more I like it.

And, of course, I have before and after pics. The “before” is from December. Since then, I’ve lost a bunch of hair and a bunch of weight. For all following pictures, clickify to biggify. (I didn’t really wear my hair like this out in public)


And a couple of quick, one-handed “after” snaps. (These aren’t very good, maybe I’ll to get some better ones up)


Oh boy! Summer hair fun. Do other people get an unexplainable urge to mess with their hair during the summer? The past couple of summers I’ve sprayed A Touch of Sun in it to lighten it up. Well I topped that one this year.

Who knows what it’ll look like in a couple of days. I ain’t got no hair doing skillz. I usually wet it and put anti-frizz crap in it. It takes all of 13.7 seconds. I think this will take more work. And I can’t get it wet for three days. I actually have a shower cap to wear in the shower. Teehee.
