all roads lead to muswell hill

Many things happened, and I was worse but now I'm better because I whinged to my Nice Therapist (thus distinguished from the Irritating NHS one) and went and had my hair cut and dyed, therefore quite possibly winning the Hair Wars at verlaine's party.





Tamed Hair



Hair First Thing In the Morning





This is meant to demonstrate the random layers I cut into it myself, as soon as I got back from the hairdressers because I loved the colour but I wasn't pleased with how they cut it. I'm not sure how it is that instructions such as *i'd like some layers, but don't touch the bangs please* got translated into *cut me a fringe, but leave my hair one length* but it did give me an excuse to play with scissors as soon as I got home.

There is something fiendishly wonderful and therapeutic about chopping hair.I adore it at any rate, even when the result is very random (as it inevitably is when you can't see how you're cutting in the back).

Friday night was the leaving party of verlaine and I'm sure I would have been in floods of tears were I not distracted by meeting ultraruby!! (who was even spiffier than her LJ had led me to believe) and by tjej looking particularly beautiful as she fondled her new phone. It was wonderful as always to see lots of the old familiar faces(miss_newham,haggisthesecond,amuchmoreexotic,martylog,hoshuteki,mooism, kesstrel &gf) especially the loveable face of mzdt and the faces I only usually see on TubeWalks (the_heiress and strange_powers).

I drank lots of wine, admired elethes fetish shoes and shrieked at whoever carried uncaged rats, and ate lots of Pringles and hugged lots of people and lounged on bluedevi and verlaine's bed.

And today I did lots of astrology, managed to be sufficiently on fire through learning to battle the four hours of sleep of the night only to take up miss_newham's interests and fall asleep on buses, only to struggle to reluctant consciousness somewhere in the region of West Hampstead upon being shaken awake by the driver.

I would write more, and better, but I am almost icoherent with tiredness.

Re: it always shocks and awes my brother
wheee!

how often do you cut yours?

ultraruby cuts her own hair too!
perhaps we ought to start a Hairhackers community....

Whenever [or hopefully just before] the hair on the back of my neck grows out into a curly ducktail - ugh!

it was lovely to see you again last night. Oh, and I didn't get to chat with Z (that was Z, right?)--but he looked adorable.

I'm sorry I didn't get more of a chance to chat to you at the party but I shall cherish the Bird Story :D

Even spiffier? Awwwww!

You were very very spiffy too; almost exactly as I'd imagined you to be, and then not at all as well. I'm sorry I didn't spend more time talking with you, but I'm sure as sure we'll see each other again.

Hooray for real life! And for cutting one's own hair!

Yes! And even days later I'm still feeling inordinately pleased that you Are Actually Real and Everything.

almost exactly as I'd imagined you to be, and then not at all as well.

how cool! in what ways was I different, other than drunker quite possibly? ;)

I'm really pleased you're real too! I feel a bit silly to be soooo excited about it, but I am.

How were you different? Ok, this might sound a bit twee or weird, so please don't be freaked out by it....I think that in your writing you glow, whereas in real life you shine as well. In real life you're smilier and more physical and somehow warmer than I'd imagined you to be. So, like, at one point you apologised for being all touchey feely and I said no no it's fine, and it was a nice little interaction because it was an acknowledgement of physicality.

The hair is lovely :o) Much as i like your hair long, i prefer it like that.

The second photo looks like you're trying to entice someone somewhere....

Love you x
