I ironed. Me! Ironed! This is not an activity I ever, ever do. I needed a new black skirt (my old one is a bit tight for working in a children's office!) and was super lucky to find a perfect, practically brand-new one at the thrift store. With so much free time on my hands, I decided to iron the skirt, despite having just a few teensie wrinkles (much to my boss's dismay, I've never thought "teensie" wrinkles justify ironing). Remember, I do not iron, ever...and now my perfect skirt is ruined! I melted the fabric and now it has permanent iron marks, without me ever even wearing it. *Sigh*
Remember my tweet the other day regarding the $10 highlights deal? It turned out to be for only 2 highlights. Being the
Damn you, Revlon Frost & Glow!
*Beware, the results you are about to see are real. Yes, I even performed the strand test!
Who else thinks I look like Rogue from X-Men?
See that clump of silver hair in the lower left? That's not the mistake of my camera - some of the highlights turned gray! I can't explain that little pink fuzz on the right, other than to say it fits right in with my "one bad thing after another" mentality of the moment. I feel like a ticked off senior citizen.
Of course, I read all the bad reviews of Revlon Frost & Glow after doing this to my hair. The grayness, the breakage, the mixed shades of color all over your head, the frustration with the stupid hair dye cap that rips out pieces of hair, and the inaccuracy of the strand test - all online and waiting to warn people before using this kit, if only they would take the time to Google it. They are never going to let me hear the last of this at work.
Really, wouldn't this be too many examples? I'm sleep-deprived and Sexy Nerd has ignored me all 4 days (except for the hour when he helped me dye my hair with that terrible Revlon kit. Can I blame the results on him?) of this long weekend because he ordered a lathe and now spends all his time spinning blocks of wood into bombs (bombs, for fricks sake!!) in the garage. Between you and me, I think the bombs all look like little Christmas trees.
