Just Angel: 'Tis I, the artist formerly known as Angel Spun/Midnight Angel. Why I didn't just keep it simple and use those names as journal titles, I don't know. Takes awhile to work out the kinks, I guess. Roll Eyes
    But this feels right...the nickname given to me by my paternal grandmother. Everyone here calls me Angel anyway, so here it is, down to brass tacks. New year, new journal, new name...sort of. Same ol' me though. Wink

Hair: Started 2010 off with a W-VR-CC. Washed with my very diluted Pantene-TRESemmé shampoo blend, then used an ACV rinse. Conditioned first with the last of my Pantene-Herbal Essences blend conditioner, and the last time with Suave lavender lilac. Confused yet? Undecided
    Anywho, my hair has stayed down all day, mostly for measuring purposes, but also because I'm sick as a dog and don't feel like doing anything with it.
    The number came out to 28.5" today. Success! I will reach waist length this year. Cheesy

The Rest: So I'm sick, unemployed and in need of an emergency surgery that I can't afford...and my right index finger is sliced. The new year is off to an epic start. Roll Eyes

Oh, and my sister reminded me that my birthday is in a week. We're getting to the point where our 4 year age gap seems to be closing. When we were younger, it made a big difference. Not so much anymore.
    Speaking of my sis, she's decided that I'm deprived in the way of pop culture movies, so she made me watch Transformers tonight. She found it amusing that I remember "the original Transformers"..., which goes back to the age thing. Roll Eyes

Well, it's after midnight. So ends the first day of the year. Reckon I'll stop yammering now and get to bed. Sleep is the best medicine. Cheers!

Hair: I just woke up, so it's a mess. The plan is to do a CWC, using my new Kenra stuff as the first conditioner. To be quite honest, I have serious buyer's remorse, wasting so much $$$ on swanky salon products that don't work as well as my Pantene. I should have known. Embarrassed But the little silver coffin-shaped bottles were apparently beyond my resistance. Roll Eyes Now all I want is to get rid of them.

Etc.: Yeah, so much for that whole sleeping idea. Tongue I was up all night blowing my nose and haven't stopped. It was insanely cold last night and our heater is broken. My throat was already sore, so it killed just to breathe. The only relief was pulling my comforter over my head, which gets uncomfortably close after awhile.
    When I actually did sleep, I dreamed about miraculously resurrecting a brilliant composer who had died 1,000 years ago, and gaining insight to his genius as we tried to correct some type of injustice to his life's work. Huh Sort of like Corpse Bride meets The Crow meets Phantom Of The Opera.
    Is it any wonder that I never used drugs? Roll Eyes

Anyway, it looks as though our Christmas tree and decorations are coming down today. Sad My mini tree came down days ago after it fell over while I was cleaning...and my sister's dog chewed up several of its pretty red ornaments. Angry

My goals for the day are to pick up my neglected bass again and play it...and shop! I am more or less functionally ill. Roll Eyes


One sunny day,
I'll get back again
Somehow, some way,
But I don't know when
California blue,
California blue

Oh dear, I hope you start feeling better soon.
Can I recommend some combination of a humidifier, neti pot rinse, and behind-the-counter sudafed?

And nice to see you re-incarnated, Angel!
I was rooting for Angel Noir, but just Angel is also quite nice.  Cheesy

KNS: Thanx. I do seem to be on the mend. Slowly but surely. Humidifier, check. Sudafed, check. Neti pot...I don't own one and would probably drown myself trying to use one (YouTube gold). Grin

Hair: The usual CWC routine + Suave Kids detangling spray. Style is a single braid. Having the worst pinched nerve I've ever had in my life makes doing anything with my hair quite difficult. So that's one more thing I can add to the ever-growing list of what's wrong with me. Roll Eyes

Etc.: Slowly healing. That's about all I can say. Illness, pinched nerve and the slice in my finger...all slowly healing.

My nails are insanely glitzy. hehe Move over, Ziggy. Grin


Hold it in the light and see right through it
For God's sake, make a decision
Take it for a walk and hold it, hold it
Pin it on the wall and fasten onto
Move it to the back and oh yes, oh yes
Do what must be done and don't say maybe

This is the one for the money
This is the one for the trees
This is the one called heaven
And this is the one for me

I'm glad you're on the mend...oh, man, pinched nerves suck!!!  I hope yours resolves itself or you manage to get to a chiropractor and get it un-pinched!!!

"Move over, Ziggy"  LOL!

Heehee! You'd be quite talented to drown yourself with a neti pot, but I understand the sentiment. It's really much better to just try it, and not watch the videos. Grin

Also, who's Ziggy? I want in on the funny!  Embarrassed

Sakina: They do indeed suck. Fortunately, it seems to be making a rapid recovery. Smiley

KNS: Ziggy Stardust, babe. Wink And just the same, I think I'll pass on the neti pot.

Hair: CWC with Kenra volumizing conditioner, shampoo blend and Pantene Ice Shine conditioner. Leave-ins were Suave Kids detangling spray and ELOO. Managed to leave my hair down with a side part all day, and shockingly, it didn't end up a complete rat's nest. Smiley Of course, I did duck into a few ladies' rooms while I was out and put a seamless comb to work.

Etc.: Four chamber walls couldn't contain me today with my sickness disappearing (slowly). One can only stay in playing bass for so long before developing a maddening case of cabin fever (not to mention very sore fingers!), so I took my Christmas giftcards out shopping. Came home with a new top and a new jacket; both black, both very cute, and both with rock & roll potential. Wink

On that note, I'm positively itching to get back on the stage...

Trisha: Thanx, and me too! The voice has already come back about 75%. It's good to be able to sing again. Smiley

Hair: CWC. No leave-ins. Hair is down. I'm a bum. Tongue

Etc.: Been hanging out in my pj's all day since I have nothing to wear, and I'm not going anywhere or doing anything. Plus, I'm still sick, so if I happen to fall asleep anywhere, at least I'm dressed for it. Roll Eyes

Anyway, I'm off to do more of nothing. Roll Eyes

Trisha: Huh Surely you're not serious.

Hair: WCC with an ACV rinse this morning. I like cutting through the grease, conditioner and other excesses, and starting afresh.
    There was a teensy bit left of the shampoo blend I'd been using, so I dumped the last of it into my Kenra shampoo, along with a little TRESemmé to help it lather better, and shook it up. The concoction smells faintly like beer from a distance, which I don't like at all! ...

Colouring the blonde hairpiece that I had didn't work. So I lashed it and decided that the next time I feel the need for fake hair, I'll buy brunette. Even if it's too dark. Roll Eyes

Etc.: Tomorrow is my b-day and my friend T will be in town this evening to make help me celebrate. Roll Eyes

Happy Birthday!!!

Is it a synthetic hair piece?

Ohhh, Tresemme...
I have a bottle of that at my parent's place. It's umm, I think... Let me see.
Yup. At least 9 years old now.
Want some for your evil hair-genius chemistry experiments?!  Cheesy
It's got a French name. Maybe like a good French wine, Tresemme only gets better with age!  Grin
