All: Thanx!

KNS: Grin Think I need to use up my own excesses before moving onto someone else's. hehe Thanx anyway though. And yes, it was a synthetic hairpiece.

Hair: Lately, the routine has been CWC + the usual leave-ins + single braid. Got some of that wonderfully expensive Kenra shampoo in my eye this morning. Holy #&$%!!! Lips Sealed ...
Much like Herbal Essences, if it hurts my eyes that much, wtf is it doing to my hair?!

Etc.: My parents gave me a huge ice cream "cake," which was really just layers of ice cream (I've never cared for cake), cash and 3 cards.
    My grandfather in WA sent a card and a check.
    From T, a coffee table book about Michael Jackson, a fractal calendar, dinner at my favourite little café, a card and the new Echo & The Bunnymen album.
    Got a happy birthday tweet this morning from the Echo & The Bunnymen crew. Cheesy Nice thing to wake up to.

The family & I are heading to Disneyland tomorrow night. Speaking of which, the Bats Day crew have finally released photos from the 2009 event. This was ours. That's our little group on the right.

Anyway, my nails have been redone in high quality black with a tastefully subtle glitter topcoat. Should be right at home in New Orleans Square. Wink

Cheers!

Hair: Yesterday saw the usual routine with the last of my Kenra conditioner, Kenra blend shampoo and Pantene Ice Shine conditioner. It was the final use for all of the above.
    The weather has been wreaking havoc on my skin again and yesterday morning, I noticed a rash from one (or some) of the products I'd been using. After yesterday's shower, I snapped and lashed everything that was bad for me/not working/potential cause for the rash/etc. Hair products, skin products, face products - if it was the least bit suspect, it was gone.

Later that afternoon, I went shopping for a total restock. So I'm back to using Suave light conditioners. Shampoo will either be Pantene Ice Shine or Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition, whichever I feel like using on any given day.
    My Ice Shine conditioner was pretty much gone, so I refilled the bottle with Moisture Renwal - my old friend.
    Now I at least have the reassurance that what I'm using works for me. It's good to be back.

Tonight, I might call my scissor lady and try to schedule a trim for this weekend if I don't have anything going on.

Etc.: Disneyland was fun, as our night trips usually are (even though I nearly passed out from hypoglycemia). We did a lot in just a few hours and my friend T even joined us.

This morning has been anything but fun. I've been losing sleep over my impending oral surgery, which is why I'm up at this ungodly hour. I'm here for distraction. My hands are shaking a bit even as I type this.
    Today I have a consultation with my sister's oral surgeon, and I can fairly well predict what they're going to say. My wisdom teeth are severely decayed and need to come out NOW. It's been the same story for years, and if I could afford to do anything about it, I would have already.

God only knows how/if this will work itself out. My heart is pounding right now. There's my alarm. Time to face the music... Cry

First, happy belated birthday!  Kiss  Second, here's hoping you find some peace about the oral surgery.  I agree with CG64--just keep breathing.  *hugs*

Trish & Curlgirl: Thanx. As predicted, it's imperative to do the surgery ASAP, but it's even more expensive than I thought it would be. So I've been trying to stay chill and weigh the options. Just keep breathing...

Hair: Did a heavy ELOO treatment last night and washed out this morning with Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition shampoo. First conditioner was the Triple Nutrition 3-Minute Undo treatment, which has tiny seeds or bits of seeds or shells or whatever in it. ... I'm not keen on the idea of putting abrasive substances in my hair. Shocked
    Second conditioner was the regular Triple Nutrition stuff, which goes on quite thin.
    Leave-ins were Suave Kids detangling spray on the length and a little ELOO on the ends. All that olive oil made for some pretty greasy locks, so into a single braid it went. Tongue

Tomorrow, I have a trim scheduled for 5 PM.

Speaking of trims, I took about 2" off of my sister's hair last night at her request. Admittedly, I'm not the best hair trimmer on Earth, but she insisted, so I gave it my best. Then I ran a little ELOO through the ends of her hair, which are terribly dry and damaged so they sucked it right up. In the end, she seemed quite satisfied with Angel's ghetto salon. Roll Eyes

Etc.: Today I decided to indulge a few therapy techniques to help me deal with recent stresses. I started by writing down some of my biggest problems and worst fears, then hiding them away and trying to put them out of my mind for awhile. Then I went to my favourite mall, where a particularly smart blazer caught my eye - and it was on sale too. Wink Couldn't resist, though I'll have to get it tailored. It's been far too long since I had a good blazer to go with everything.

Tonight, I'm just doing laundry and catching up on TV shows. Strange for someone who isn't into TV. Roll Eyes

Angel, I sent you a pm.

p.s. Will the oral surgeon work with you on making payments perhaps?

Trisha: Yes, they offer financing and I could also use a credit card. But I'm afraid my monthly expenditures are pretty well maxed out right now. Undecided

Hair: CWC with Suave lavender lilac conditioner, Pantene Ice Shine shampoo and Pantene Moisture Renewal conditioner. Sprayed both Suave Kids and Kenra leave-in conditioners on the length and used extra serum today since I knew that I would have a trim this evening. Hair stayed down all day, and I gave my scalp a massage just before said trim.
    Scissor lady refused payment after hearing that I'd been out of work since September. So nice of her! I'll definitely remember her in my prayers tonight. Free fresh ends! Cheesy
    Measured the length at 28.75" just before the trim.

Etc. Wanted to indulge a little writing therapy at the coast after my mum started in on me this morning. Angry The weather was perfect - overcast with patches of drizzle along the way; a new CD in the stereo and I sang along. It all went well until I reached the shore and found it nearly impossible to park. People everywhere. And then the sun came out. ...

Sometime later, I guess.


The shining sea, the silver sky,
A perfect world before my eyes
Don't be scared, don't you cry
If all the world goes passing by

A very belated happy birthday from here.  Long story.....but I'm taking the time to read everyone's blogs because I WANT TO!  Need to make time for things one wants to do sometimes. 

Do you need to have your wisdom teeth removed?  It wasn't bad for me.  This is probably my clumsy attempt at comfort but it was nothing on having the tonsils out.

Hair: Clarified. Still using the (slightly diluted) Pantene/Herbal essences clarifying shampoo blend and DWV rinse. Used my sister's Pantene Moisture Renewal conditioner instead of my own. Buahahahaha!
    After spraying on Suave Kids leave-in and air drying, I measured my hair at 27.25". So I lost 1.5" during the trim. My hair definitely seems thicker for it.
    Anyroad, it's now braided as usual and out of the way.

Etc.: Still no news in the job search. Sad My UI only lasts until September so they'd better get crackin'. Three and a half months have already flown by without a shred of encouragement. Will it become six months? Nine? Undecided

Well, I couldn't offer any words of encouragement about oral surgery, because my personal experience would probably not be comforting at all! To be fair, they were not my wisdom teeth, so maybe wisdom teeth extraction is done completely differently.  Cheesy

Hooray for the kind scissor lady!

What kind of work are you looking for? Whatever it is, I hope you find something soon!

Does this mean that if you don't have a job by September, you have nothing and no other options?  I apologize if I sound stupid but I don't know what the unemployment system is like where you are.

Drear: UI lasts for a maximum of one year in CA.

KNS: I am in the clerical/administrative field, and thanks.

Hair: CWC + Suave leave-in spray. Hair's been down all day and the length is greasy in certain areas for some reason. Huh Tonight, I'll try to wash all of my seamless combs, as well as wash all of my hair again tomorrow.
    If I attempt a power walk tonight, I'll braid it. Otherwise...meh.

Etc.: Had an interview set up with a company through yet another soddin' staffing agency until I realized that said company was way out of my commute range. Of course the staffing agency wasn't going to tell me that - I had to drive out there for myself to see just how far it really was - and cursed them all the way back home. What a sham. Angry At least the staffing service won't get commission for using me. Losers.

Ahem. Back to my bass studies...

Hair: Well, it's official. I'm going to colour. Yesterday, I picked up 2 boxes of Level 1 "light brown," which is actually more of a medium chocolate brown, truth be told, so it shouldn't be too drastically different from my natural colour. It's just for fun and should only last about a week...but I'm excited. I haven't dyed my hair in 10 years. I'm going to wait a few days for my skin to clear up before colouring.

The routine this morning will be a CWC with an ACV rinse. Somehow, I managed to lose the cap to the bottle that I used to make vinegar rinses in, so I got a new one yesterday...a strange, torpedo shaped thing. We'll see how it works out.

Leave-ins will be Suave Kids detangler and probably ELOO, as serum hasn't been terribly helpful lately. Style will be contained just in case I end up going to Disneyland later today. I've worn my hair down for the past few days anyway.

Etc.: Yesterday, I discovered that my next big bill isn't due until February, so I finally have a little money to play with. Cheesy Ordered some gorgeous, gothly new goodies from 1928, then headed to the local stores. Whoever said that money can't buy happiness never had to worry about money. It can't buy love, but it most certainly can buy happiness. Dahling. Wink

Anyroad, as mentioned above, my sister & I might drive up to Disneyland today. Her boyfriend will be wrapped up in the playoffs...at least, I think it's the playoffs. Huh Our team is a contender for the Stupid Bowl this year, so everyone's jumping on the blue & gold bandwagon. Roll Eyes I don't follow American football.
