Hmmm, well a rather crappy week at work (which won't get to me, which won't get to me, repeat ad nauseam) has been mitigated by Luciane asking me to go on holiday with her to Europe! Eek!

I'm wondering whether this might be a very stupid thing to do (to go on holiday with someone I've never met in the flesh) but it might also be a very good thing to do. Who knows!

Anyway, she's still thinking about it.

1. Is your hair naturally curly, wavy, or straight? Long or short?

Straight and short(ish)

2. How has your hair changed over your lifetime?

Just the usual thinning and greying

3. How do your normally wear your hair?

Au naturel (sometimes with a little "clay" to give it some lift)

4. If you could change your hair this minute, what would it look like?

Hmmmm, I like black hair (which I already have) but just to give it a little more life. Perhaps some crazy curls or something. Perhaps a Grade 1 all over? I just want one of those haircuts that looks fab but natural :-)

5. Ever had a hair disaster? What happened?

My Mum cut it. "Don't worry she said, I can do it really short and it will look OK." She destroyed it. Everyone at College wondered what the hell had happened. I had to go to a hairdressers the next day, and they took it down to Grade 2 to take out the mistakes. Mind you, the resulting hair cut at from the hairdressers was surprisingly good (and a new style for me!), so there was a silver lining :-)

Trev (at work) told me that I had greatly impressed someone by my nagging for work, I assume he meant Ian (my boss) but he refused to be specific. I didn't say it to impress anyone though, and I still need more damn work! >:-(

Birthday aggro. My Mum comes up and tells me that she is struggling to find stuff on my presents list. "Errr, my birthday is on Sunday Mum. I warned you a month ago that this stuff would be hard to find, and that you would have to order it from the Internet." ... for fucks sake, what do I have to do? The whole point of a birthday is to do something spontaneous is it not? This is virtually handing it to someone on a plate, and yet they still can't cope. I tried to explain this to my Mum, and the conversation ended from me with "just give me the money...". Duh! I find it very frustrating when people are incapable of the most basic tasks. I also find it rather saddening when it's my Mum who is supposed to be showing she cares, as some half-heared last minute affair (as per usual). I find it really upsetting! Plus I feel guilty for being difficult, yet why the hell should I feel guilty?!

I guess I'll add a caveat to my list in no uncertain terms, for the dumb >:-(
