Earlier this morning, I took inventory of my shampoo supply, did a little math and concluded that I have enough Pantene shampoos to last into early July! Shocked Cheesy I'm liking this whole "saving money" concept.

It didn't. I'm not really sure when or if we'll be getting together, actually. Undecided

Grin Grin Oh, I dunno if I'd go that far! Just because I'm capping it in some areas doesn't mean I'm not hemorrhaging it in others. Wink

Hair: CWC + Detangling spray + braid. As usual. Not much to report.

Other Stuff: Spent the morning exfoliating, shaving, doing laundry, etc. to get stage-ready for tomorrow. Meh.

Hair: Yesterday, I used up the last of my Suave Soothing Lavender Lilac light conditioner, which is good because I don't care for the new scent. Tongue This morning, I started on a new bottle of Suave Ocean Breeze light conditioner. When paired with my coconut lime verbena scented shampoo blend, my shower becomes a tropical bouquet. Happy island fragrances swirling everywhere. ... Yeah, that kinda stuff gets me energized...what can I say?

So, it was the usual CWC again with Detangling spray on the length and EVOO on the ends. Hair is staying down until tonight - I think I'm going to do an updo of some sort. Probably the usual double buns with black roses. Or hair sticks. It will coordinate with whatever outfit I decide on. Roll Eyes

Work: The AVP (my former boss) is visiting from Vegas, holding meetings in our conference room. He's really enjoyed the relocation - gets to see his daughter and grandson more often.
   
After my shift ends, I'll be going out to lunch with the gal who works in the office behind mine. She said that she feels bad for missing my b-day, so it's a belated present. Wink

Weather: Rain is in the forecast. Cheesy The sky has been gray and cloudy for days. I have the blinds drawn back in the windows of my office. Ahhh...

Other Stuff: Show tonight, blah blah blah, whatever. Tongue I'm looking forward to tomorrow when it's all over. And every hour I survive today brings me closer to that.

Of course, after my lunch date, I'll drive home and start getting ready. No clue what I'll wear just yet...not that it matters much. I'm just a bloody backup singer. Roll Eyes

No. Backup singers should not dress to draw attention to themselves - kind of like a wedding. You don't show up looking better than the bride, eh? In just about any other band, this is the case.
    However, we're not just "any other band." Wink Sometimes I'll be placed at the front of the stage. Also, being the only girl, the only goth and the youngest member in the band, I'm bound to stand out a little without trying. So, I pretty much wear whatever I want and it seems to have worked so far. Roll Eyes

Hair: Thursday Night: Did a slightly alternative version of the usual double bun updo. This time, rater than pinning or slicking the ends into place, I let them stick out however they wanted and even slicked them with water so they would be spiky. I also stuck 2 black hairsticks into them in the shape of an X.

Friday: A rather unconventional WTC. Years after swearing off Herbal Essences for good, I noticed that my sister had placed a huge bottle of their Hello Hydration shampoo in our shower. So, I figured what the heck and washed with a very generous amount. Of course, it was after the fact that I noticed the main detergent was ammonium lauryl sulfate. Shocked D'oh!
    Anyway, did the treatment and 2nd conditioning as usual. I think my only leave-in was Detangling spray.

Today: Unconventional CWC. Left the final conditioner in for over 2 hours while I did a face masque, laundry and surfed the net. My parents are out of town for the weekend so I have the place to myself. Ergo, I'm doing things my own way - however the heck I want! Wink

Tried out a new leave-in today that my sis had been raving about. A spray conditioner made for horses that's devoid of oils, cones or alcohols. Unfortunately, it also seems to be devoid of conditioning agents because my hair still tangles quite a bit. Undecided I may as well have just used water.

Thursday Show: Our best ever...not that that's saying much. Roll Eyes Lizard forgot the words, John 3:16 missed the cue to end a song and we had to keep playing along until he decided to pay attention and Grateful Ed skipped a guitar part. So, we still sucked...but we sucked a little less. And we were in great company.
    After the set, we were rushed with the usual flattery - fans, friends and family all with hugs, handshakes, compliments, pats on the back, etc. etc. A few people told me that they could hear me this time and that I sounded great (we need this kind of feedback because it helps us balance our sound). The booking agent approached me and said that she loved my vibe and my voice. I still have no idea what the former meant, but ok. Grin
    And the bass player from Echo Revolution offered to buy me a drink. *blush* I wasn't interested in him or anything, but I figured what the hey? If I'm seeing these guys on a semi-regular basis, it wouldn't kill me to get to know them better. Roll Eyes

Anyway, Echo rocked it as usual. Soooo much energy - I have no idea how they all do it! A few of their songs have a very Radiohead vibe to them, which I dug, and it's always funny watching Moon Pie play with them. Love that guy. Love all those guys!
    And yes, at least 2 of them are cute, single and my age. Wink And yes, I do kinda sorta barely have a thing for at least one of them. Wink Grin
    What else can I say about this band that hasn't already been said? Likely nothing.

After their set was over, they got the usual fan rush too. Eventually, the bass player, C, made his way over to me and we went off to the bar. As it turned out, C didn't have to buy drinks for either of us because we both had tickets for free ones (my father had passed me one while Echo was playing). So we hung by the bar and talked. And once I'd made it clear to C that I was far from his ideal woman, his interest seemed to fade a bit. Grin And that's fine because he's not the one I wanted anyway. Though I gave him as fair a shot as possible.

Eventually, the next band went on, C had to leave and I rejoined my band at their table. When dad asked where I'd been, I held up my Shirley Temple and said, "Getting a drink." Yeah, I purposely left out the "with the Echo bass player" part, but...dad don't need to know everything. Roll Eyes
    Anyway, as we all watched the final band for a bit, I kept sneaking glances at Echo's cutest member, then turning away shyly and quickly (mentally cursing myself a few times) when he would look back. Shocked Embarrassed Everyone knows how that game goes. Grin I'm pretty sure that Moon Pie had told the guy earlier that I thought he was cute or something because he seemed to suspect. Embarrassed

At the end of the evening, the singer of Echo Revolution asked if I wanted to sign up for their e-mail list, so I did. Then, it was hugs and kisses all around as dad and I bid our fellow musicians goodnight and started to head out. In the midst of this, I caught my favourite Echo cutie looking at me with a smile and a gesture, so I walked over to him and we kissed each other's musical butts for a few seconds....you guys rock! No, you guys rock! No, you guys rock! Roll Eyes Grin I touched his shoulder as I said goodnight to him. Wink
 
With the help of a few bandmates, I made it up 3 flights of stairs to street level with a heavy bag of cords. Then, dad and I found our way back to my car and hit Del Taco on the way home. I don't remember what time I made it to bed.

Aye, cute, talented and in a band. Roll Eyes While real, modern ladies should avoid the latter type, I cannot curse it too much. If he & I weren't both in bands, I wouldn't have known about him. Wink So, what's a gal to do besides pray against the odds that he's not the typical musician?

Grin Grin ... HEY! I LIKE YOU!!  Grin

Hair: Did another WTC yesterday with one of the new Pantene treatments that I bought Friday night: the Moisturizing essential hydrating rinse. Left it in for well over an hour, then followed with Suave Ocean Breeze conditioner. Used Detangling leave-in spray on the length & EVOO on the ends. Hair took for-freaking-ever to dry. Tongue

This morning was the typical CWC and I only had time for Detangling spray. I need to get better at covering the ends if I'm to go 6 months between trims now.
   No braid today - I bought the hairstick that my sister gave me to work with me for a little variation.
   
Sometime over the weekend, I finally gave in and bought another bottle of Rexall Hair, Skin & Nails vitamins. What the hey? God knows all 3 of mine need all the help they can get. Tongue Grow, hair, grow!!

Nails: Sporting a new mani with Sally Hansen Diamon Strength polish in Black Diamond as the main colour. It's a little like OPI's Baby It's "Coal" Outside, but maintains its sparkle better. God, tell me why I wasted so much of my hard-earned $$$ on designer nail polish?! Tongue

Also bought 3 new Revlon polishes on Friday (my name is Angel and I'm a nail polish addict...): Black Lingerie, Steel-her Heart and Silver Screen. Cool Love them.

Music: Let the blues/standards band know that if they only plan to rehearse on Wednesday nights that I had to bow out. The problem is that now I have a somewhat vested interest in being in the band, so I'll at least see if something can be worked out.

Got a slightly dirty (male perspective) joke via e-mail from Lizard today. Sent my response in the form of an even dirtier (female perspective) continuation of the joke. Wink

Other Stuff: Also on Friday, got a Revlon lipstick in a colour called Black Cherry. Cheesy Figured I could use it as more of a sheer stain with gloss on top since I absolutely loathe lipstick. Seems to work alright.

Black towels were on clearance too, so I picked up a couple...and a new washcloth. "Fresh black" as my mother would say. They're still new and leaving black fuzzies all over the place, but they should be pretty awesome once they're broken in. Smiley Now I finally get to ditch the pair of giant black bathsheets that I bought at the request of my bf a few years ago. I'm all too happy to get rid of anything that reminds me of him. Grin

Awww, one of the outside sales guys just brought his dog into the office. And I have an Echo Revolution song stuck in my head.  Roll Eyes

Fisher2: Yup...black, black and more black. That's how I roll. Tongue Roll Eyes

Tanai: Grin So, you're lusting after a musician? Ughhhhh, girlie. Don't say I didn't warn ya. Tongue

Hair: My father was still home when I got up this morning, so I passed the time by doing a scalp massage in my room with just my overhead blacklights on and Bella Morte streaming from my stereo.
    Saved the hairs that fell out and added them to my growing collection. I almost have enough for a lock. Smiley

Unconventional seems to be the theme for this week, and today's clarifying routine was no exception. Did the first Purity wash as usual, then had to jump out of the shower when I realized I'd forgotten to finish making my ACV rinse. Tongue Of course I used bottled water from the garage, so my vinegar rinse was so cold it hurt and ended up numbing my scalp. Tongue Second Purity wash went as usual, then I squeezed the extra water out with my microfiber towel and applied Pantene Nourishing mask. Left it in for an hour, then rinsed and finished with Suave Ocean Breeze conditioner.

Only leave-in today was EVOO. Hair was a bit greasy after it dried, but less parched than on normal clarifying days. Now, it's braided and being ignored.

Music: My hours changed at work this week (unconventional, remember?) and so I've decided to attend rehearsal with the blues/standards band. Anything to stick with Brother Moon Pie. Smiley

Other Stuff: Yesterday, I ended up braiding my hair and washing my car after I got home from work. I did spray wax, regular wax, chrome polish, pretty much any other detailing that I could think of at the time. She needed it. And now she's buffed to a sexxxy shine, oh yes. Cool lol My dad said last night that she looked "gorgeous" and "like a brand new car." I told you...I enjoy that kinda stuff as much as any guy. Wink

Man, can anyone believe we're in the final week of January already? I remember last year pretty much flew by as well. And strange as it might sound coming from a winter freak, I'm kinda sorta looking forward to spring. Huh I can't really explain it. This winter has just seemed "off" for some reason(s). Undecided I'm really hoping this year's holiday season goes better. In all areas.

Well, I'm off to appease Auntie Flo with Godiva. Roll Eyes Love to all.

Hair: The usual CWC routine was all I had time for this morning since I had to work the early shift. Tongue But the beachy smells of my shower stuff are comforting...ocean breeze in my light conditioner, coconut lime verbena in my shampoo & bodywash. Ahhh... I suppose in some ways I am a SoCal gal. Roll Eyes
    Anyway, leave-in's were Detangling spray and EVOO. Been good about taking my Biotin so far.

Nails: Holding up surprisingly well given what they've been through so far this week. I might give them a little touch-up tomorrow when I have more time, but I must say I'm impressed. Thumbs and index fingers are growing remarkably well. Smiley Who would've ever thought that I could grow my nails past the quick without them self-destructing? Again, who would've ever thought that I could grow my hair past shoulder length without it self-destructing? I find that the key to both is the same: reinforcement. If hair & nails have enough protective coating, they can grow as long as they want...within reason.

Other Stuff: Asked Brother Moon Pie what he told the Echo Rev cutie, but he wouldn't fess up. Roll Eyes He did tell me, however, that said Echo Rev cutie is spoken for...which is fine because I wasn't really interested anyway. *sigh* Ah well. He's still fun to watch (and easy on the eyes). Wink
    Moon Pie also mentioned that bass player C had been asking about me. Roll Eyes That poor boy. Apparently, the "I'm not Catholic" approach didn't work, so I told Moon Pie to inform C that I am divorced. Hopefully, that will do the trick since "The Church" doesn't approve of its followers cavorting about with heathen divorcées. Grin

So, the Newport News spring catalog arrived in the mail last week and the only things that I found appealing were things that I already own. Roll Eyes Lordy, do I loathe spring fashion. But I might be able to replace the velvet blazer that I lost at a discount. Meh.

Goshdarnit!! A nerve below my left eye keeps twitching, ughhhhh! ...

Thanx for the tip. I do use Burt's Bees cuticle creme on occasion but generally avoid oils since my skin hates them.

Hair: Did another scalp massage under blacklights this morning, this time to De/Vision. Smiley Did not save any of the shed hairs. The usual CWC + Detangling spray + EVOO routine followed. Hair is almost dry as I type this and I'll be braiding it when I get a break as usual.

Music: Ended up not going to practice last night. Embarrassed I feel bad for letting Moon Pie down, but apparently I didn't miss much. Dad said it was a total "suckfest."

Other Stuff: Had to come into work an hour early today, so I ended up forgetting things and not having time for other things. *sigh*

While waiting at the pharmacy last night, a little boy passed me in an aisle with his parents and I overheard him say something like, "I like her earrings! They look cool! Look at her earrings, Mommy!" Grin I love how unbiased and honest kids can be.
    For the record, I was only wearing black ball studs in gradient sizes - I think what he liked was the fact that there were 3 on either side. Wink

Anyway, I'm off to make some herbal tea and repair my driving gloves for the umpteenth time. Roll Eyes
