no chocolate

i'm trying to talk myself out of eating the chocolate in my desk. it's not even good chocolate. i should really just throw it away. if i'm going to break ranks and eat chocolate at 10 am it's going to be some dove dark. so i'm distracting myself with blogging. i got my hair cut last night. i'm actually trying to grow it out but it's doing that thing where i have a mullet for a month before the next trim. i'm trying to be patient. i haven't had long hair in ages, and it's been the same cut since 2000 so i think it's time for a change.

my hair is the tiniest bit curly. curly enough that at chin length, like it is now, i have ringlets down the side of my face. a deranged shirley temple or a male hasidic jew, you choose. i bought a straightener last week at target (D, that's the thing i wanted to tell you about!) and i tried it out this morning. it's not exactly straight, but it's more of a veronica lake now. it'll have to do until i find the right mix of products, machines, and techniques. it's going to be a long summer.

i can't help thinking, harping on old issues, if i'm losing weight and growing my hair will my boyfriend think he's getting a raw deal?

If you want a straightener that will give you magazine-glossy straight hair, go to a beauty supply store and drop a little more money on it. I used to have a $20 Target version and it was crap compared to my $60 Hot Tools straightener...

so..what is your fave chocolate/candy bar?

straighteners are such a thing...ive had both and i think it just depends...

I used to straighten my hair, but now I've just embraced the curl. I read a book called "Curly Girl" by Lorraine Massey that explained how to take care of my hair and it helped a lot.

Good going getting rid of the chocolate!

good for you on giving the chocolate away....I'm with you on the Dove Dark (to die for)..
I'm trying to grow my hair out too and just got a lot of it thinned out in the back..I've been using the iron on it for about 3 months now and think I have it finally figured out..I have lots of waves & cowlicks...not fun...Just keep trying until you get the hang of it...it's worth it...
