FINALLY - THE HAIR ENTRY!!!

Most recently submitted for a Sunday Scribbling entry on Hair.

 

The Ultimate Segue

I'm certain most of you all know that J-land is nearing the 3rd year anniversary this month. Go check it out here! Our beloved Vivian has returned to head up the celebration (not an award competition, but a Birthday Bash!!)

This got me to think back on when I first began to write Alphawoman's Blog in September of 2003. My first reader was Trish from Journey to Peace. The first time I got "pimped" was in her journal. Then the readers and comments began.

I was addicted.

Then I received THE E-MAIL. From HIM. I thought I was so special to receive an email from HIM. It was wonderful. He told me what a refreshing writer I was. So different from rest of the no-brain dribble that prevailed AOL-J land. He told me that he was so tired of reading entries about HAIR!!

From that moment on I wanted, I was dying to do a hair entry. But I could not. He might read it and then I would join the ..... well, you all know.

I know you know, because in time I realized I was not the only one to receive such an e-mail. He must have been legendary with his B.S.

So, my hair entry went untold until now.

And you know what I have discovered? A picture is worth a thousand words. Nothing, no matter how I could try to string the words together, nothing gets my point across as this menagerie of my unrelenting quest to look .....hell, I guess sexy.

Baby hair, 4th grade hair, High school hair, Hippie Hair, Shaggy Hair, 80's hair, Oh My God That's Short As A Little Boy Hair, and pass that Red Wig Hair...

What was I thinking? I don't know, but this feels so gooooooooood!

No, he wasn't right lol! If you mean who I think you mean, nothing he said was right.

But yes, your writing is refreshing :)

MY hair has had many transformations as well and I find that I am now pretty much keeping it shoulder length which can go up in the summer. LOL I can relate to this entry. I never foresaw a day where the AOL journals scene would be what it has become. A bad break up of sorts.

How is it you don't look any older in the red wig photo than the others (except for the infant one of course)?   What a vivacious smile!  I got a kick out of this entry--the evolution of your styles pretty much matches mine.

    The first journal I ever read was Slo Mo, I remember being pimped by her soon after I arrived in March 04. Bill Binford was my first reader, I'll always be grateful to him for those early comments. Trish and Penny were among my earliest friends here also, OMG ... that seems like so long ago. Happy soon to be anniversary to us.

Are you playing it safe? I did not see any "outrageous" hairdos. Well, I once shaved one side of my head ala-Cyndi Lauper and sported unnatural colors on my locks. I just feel that there one hairstyle that you're holding out.

I'm particularly fond of picture number one.  Can you do that style again?  Lisa  :-]

I don't know who HIM was (or is) but I'm sure it was difficult to hold back on this entry, just because ... LOL ... love it!

I love this entry. Your baby picture is adorable.  As are all the other pictures.  But your personality shines through, even as a baby!  Great hair memories.
