Today, I finally did the thing I've been putting off for about a year and a half. I got a big tattoo of a battleship right on the end of my nose! Full color!! Everytime I wrinkle my nose it looks like the guns are about to fire! No, actually, I finally dyed my hair again. Turns out, Dark Auburn isn't the shade of the model on the box!! No, it's actually X-Men 2 Jean Grey Auburn, which is VERY dark and almost black in some light!! Boy, wasn't I surprised!! Little late now, it's not BAD, just nowhere near as nice as I was hoping. I guess I usually get medium or light auburn. I was going by the color on the box. Crap. I'm slightly peeved at a total of two hours effort ending in my hair still looking Mostly Brown only darker, when I wanted it lighter.
And I was reminded of why I never do this! Sitting around with crud on your hair for 25 minutes isn't really all that bad. It's the cleaning the entire bathroom so the cats won't find leftovers to eat after bending over for an hour straight trying to get all the crap out of your hair that really bites into your spinal column. Remind me next time to suck down 5 Aleve before I start.
Not that it was ENTIRELY suckage. There was one moment of levity. When you've just started and your hair is slicked back, and you've got a dark green towel around your neck pinned together like some sort of cloak, there's this whole Slytherin thing that really strikes you. I felt like Lucius Malfoy with dark hair. I did a little evil posing, with my dark green cloak and all. It was required.
