Long, long weekend.
Work work work is my weekend theme song.
Still adjusting to the very blackness of my hair, hasn't been this way since high school, oy!
No test yet today but I may do one later and update. Feeling too blah to bother.
Go to see a neurologist on the 27th and then an internist on the 30th. Wish me luck.

Finally dyed things. And my hair? Well get this, the BOX said "Natural Deep Brown". Guess what color it is? CAT BLACK! Yes! Talk about fucky! S's was "Plum Black" or somesuch, but it came out much lighter than mine. Hee. Oh, how cruel the hands of fate are! I look so...so...GAWTH!
Ok me go now, wake up hubby and give him coffee like a good wifey.

My daughter's fever broke last night tho, woo! I hate it when my kids are sick I feel so helpless because there is only so much I can do for them and they are like limp little noodles :/

Found the downside to my haircut this morning: WICKED BEDHEAD. But it is also an upside, because sometimes bedhead can be cute/sexy. I love bedhead on men sometimes it is hilarious and makes me want to pounce. S'true. My hubby almost never has it but when he does WATCH OUT. hee.

In other news, had a weird conversation about Tom Jones and head panties with J last night and then another weird conversation about invisible socks with B. I'm not one to convince myself that these were profound conversations. Rather I enjoyed them because of their silliness. There is altogether too little silliness in this world, it's nice when it comes unannounced.

As mentioned before S never came over last night but that is good as I was exhausted and taking care of my daughter anyway. We are making plans to make plans to get together and dye like there is no tomorrow.

Wednesday is fish day at the Elizabethan, so we will definitely hook up there. I love their haddock. Every Wednesday it's the same thing, "Wanna do lunch?" "Ok, where should we go?" "The Queens?" "Ha! No. How about the Elizabethan? It's fish day..." "Woo!"

I'm serious. We have tried to go other places, but why? They tend to mess up food too often and this place has NEVER given us bad lunch. So there! I am not always a creature of habit but this, this is RITUAL.

Now that I have assured you I am certifiably crazy, on to tests! I take at least one online test a day, because I am such a sucker for em. If you have a cool one to go to contact me. I will post any and all results in here.

For other test junkies, try All The Tests DOT com. Yum.

Test of the Day:

Find Your Star Wars Twin

OPENNESS:High scorers tend to be original, creative, curious, complex; Low scorers tend to be conventional, down to earth, narrow interests, uncreative. You: very high (88 percentile)Yoda -- This wise, philosophical, and thoughtful Jedi master challenges the establishment, encouraging his pupils to unlearn what they have learned and see the world in novel, creative ways.

CONSCIENTIOUS:High scorers tend to be reliable, well-organized, self-disciplined, careful; Low scorers tend to be disorganized, undependable, negligent. You: neither high nor low (47 percentile)Grand Moff Tarkin -- Is in the middle of conscientiousness because although he is usually a highly organized leader with a keen eye for detail, he occasionally misses a small but crucial detail (e.g., vulnerable exhaust ports on death stars).

EXTRAVERSION:High scorers tend to be sociable, friendly, fun loving, talkative; Low scorers tend to be introverted, reserved, inhibited, quiet. You: neither high nor low (53 percentile)Ewoks -- A species with extraverted and introverted tendencies. On one hand they are a shy, timid, and reclusive species. On the other hand, they are very sociable, living in groups, placing great emphasis of interpersonal relations.

AGREEABLENESS:High scorers tend to be good natured, sympathetic, forgiving, courteous; Low scorers tend to be critical, rude, harsh, callous. You: neither high nor low (50 percentile)Darth vader/Anakin Skywalker -- This character truly belongs in the middle of the agreeableness dimension, representing both good and evil. On one hand a kind and warm, on the other hand, evil & ruthless.

NEUROTICISM:High scorers tend to be nervous, high-strung, insecure, worrying; Low scorers tend to be calm, relaxed, secure, hardy. You: high (76 percentile)C-3P0 -- This fussy droid is generally anxious and nervous with a constitution that often seems unsuitable for the danger in which it finds itself.

They all said we'd never get together
Darling, let's take a bow
For ho, ho, ho!
Who's got the last laugh?
Hee, hee, hee!
Let's at the past laugh
Ha, ha, ha!
Who's got the last laugh now?"

Charlie Biddle Trio, They All Laughed

I cut my hair today. LOTS. It was just about mid-back level. It is now all chunks and layers not lower than my chin. I like it. A lot.

So on top of cutting my hair today I am going to be dying it with my dear buddy S. It is a ritual we go through every once in a while. Just get together and color our hair and do girlie type things that we normally abhor. Feminity is not our forte by far but man can we color! ;) Actually, nix that because she found her cat today...it was ummm not very alive? Yeah. I feel horrible because I didn't quite hear her when she told me on the phone, so I kept calling her a slacker for skipping school, meanwhile she is mumbling about a dead cat? I'm such a heartless bitch, is what you may be thinking, when really, I'm not. I'm just DEAF.
So, sorry S, we'll get together another day and destroy our follicles and bitch about men.

I am totally enamored with my hair now, it is such a free feeling. My bruddah R likes it. Which is odd because he normally thinks anything I wear or do is weirdness itself. (From him this is a sort of compliment, or at least I take it this way. In the past it bothered me to no end; this, I suppose, is the nature of siblings. Your focus shifts as you grow and you see through the bullshit to realize what was really being said/done.)

I rented a bunch of movies for my daughter, who has the flu; we've been watching Shrek and then another movie and then Shrek and then another movie, lather rinse repeat. It's still funny after the 2 bazillionth viewing, which is rare for a movie. It's the little things that you pick up that you may have missed before. I like subtlety.

As for good old Biddle, shame on you if you haven't heard of him! Go! Find him! Love him! He is *the* father of the Montreal Jazz scene!

Awright. I go now.

Fighting soldiers from the sky,
Fearless men who jump and die,
Men who mean just what they say
The brave men of the Green Beret.
Silver wings upon their chests,
These are men, America's best,
One hundred men we'll test today,
But only three win the Green Beret.

Trained to live off nature's land,
Trained in combat, hand to hand,
Men who fight by night and day,
Courage take from the Green Beret.

Silver wings upon their chests,
These are men, America's best,
Men who mean just what they say,
The brave men of the Green Beret.

Back at home a young wife waits,
Her Green Beret has met his fate,
He has died for those oppressed,
Leaving her this last request:

Put silver wings on my son's chest,
Make him one of America's best,
He'll be a man they'll test one day,
Have him win the Green Beret.

Staff Sgt. Barry Sadler - Ballad of the Green Berets

I never thought I'd live in a time where war would become common talk around the dinner table and innocents would die so quickly. I never thought I'd live in fear of my children's future. I am arrogant, I guess. This is a hard day for me to begin with. So many bad things have happened on this day. But some good things, too. I am confused. I am tired. I am REALLY not wanting to go to work. *sigh*

Take me back to the land of kids.

Who am I wearing my poppy for? Too many people.

Hey little sister what have you done
Hey little sister who's the only one
Hey little sister who's your superman
Hey little sister who's the one you want
Hey little sister shotgun

It's a nice day to start again
It's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again

Billy Idol, White Wedding
