New Career

I've decided on my new job. I want to be an actress in those commercials for veggie choppers and knives and hand held irons.

You know the ones. Scene one is usually filmed in dingy, dreary black and white tones, poor woman huffing and puffing and dramatically wiping the sweat from her brow as she struggles and struggles to just chop a potato so she can feed her poor starving children! But it is so hard, so difficult and the potato wobbles every where and she ends up with just a tiny little cube because it's just TOO HARD!!

Second scene is in bright happy color, sunlight flooding the room, smiling happy faces as mom effortlessly chops billions of potatoes in just 0.002 seconds!

And speaking of commercials, has anyone seen that McDonald's commercial - I saw it twice yesterday while watching Harry Potter movies on Family Channel - the one where the little boy dressed in a yellow track suit comes to the table carrying a huge boom box and his family is just staring at him, aghast, as he bops in his chair, eating his apple slices and at the end, dad starts getting a little funky with it?

Funniest commercial I've seen in years!

And now I'm off to face the worst possible trauma and stress that a woman can face: A new hair stylist!

I love the woman who has been cutting my hair, but it takes months to get an appointment with her and I am seriously shaggy. Carol Brady shaggy! So I'm giving the lady who waxes my eyebrows a chance.


Loki sez: That does sound scary!

So how'd your hair appointment go? I haven't been to a stylist in over a year. My favorite stylist moved to Germany when her military hubby was transfered. I'm picky about who touches my hair. When I say cut one half inch straight across, that's what I expect. Oh and don't even get me started on the first time I took Korinne to get a trim. I told the guy, half an inch straight across....he cut off 3 inches! I was livid! You've seen her hair. It's curly and barely goes past her shoulders when dry. After he butchered it, it was to her chin!

Hair cut is good. A wee bit short, but exactly what I asked for, so I can't complain.

I'm not sure I enjoyed the religious, far-right political chitchat, but I don't disagree with someone holding scissors to my head.

Besides, as a nontheist, liberal in this great state, I can smile and fake it with the best of them!
