so, every now and then I get REALLY bored with my hair.  Usually when this occurs, one of three things will happen:

1. I’ll cut it.  usually myself

2. I’ll color it. usually myself, and usually just  a brighter shad of my natural color.

3. I’ll try out some crazy new hair ideas, like bumpits or crimping, etc.

So last night, the fever hit me, and I just HAD to do something.  I was trolling around the local walmarts and wound up in the hair aisle.  I scooped up some Revlon Color Silk, and then spotted the roller section.  They had those little foam roller things, like my mom had when she was little.  I could totally see where my night would end up.

So, first I dyed my hair. (no pic of that, sorry) and watched this awesome show on the history channel (shut up, they totally have awesome shows on the history channel!) Called Stan Lee’s Superhumans.  Stan Lee found this freaky dude who can contort himself into a tiny box, and has that guy go gallivanting across the planet looking for other freaky people.  Examples: he found a guy with the hardest head.  his skull was 16mm thick, whereas most people’s are around 7mm. He found a dude that can climb anything, just like a monkey.  He found another dude that can run forever, he never fatigues! See? awesome!

Then, after using the provided conditioner, I started the curler process. Whilst wrapping, Contortionist guy found a man who can feel no pain.  He shoved a 10 inch skewer through his forearm without even flinching, and i t didn’t even bleed!  CRAZY!  Then they found a dude who can make the sound of an orchestra, with his voice.  Kinda like beatboxing, but to the nth degree.  The put an endoscope down his throat to watch what his vocal chords do, it was so gross, but so neat.

Ok, so here’s the head with all the curlers in:

Totally awesome, right?  Look how cute and tiny they are.   I should have taken a picture of my head wrapped in  a bandanna, with green nightcream on my face. and a pink fluffy bathrobe.  that would have been funny.

So, then I slept.



and then took them out. Holy jesus.

Curls!  And brighter hair!  Yay!

so, since that looked kind of crazy, I took some after pictures, too.









So I guess my super-human feat of awesomeness is like, totally being a trendsetter.


A liiiiiittle explanation August 26, 2010

So, here’s a little about the diet plan that I’ve started, to lose a bunch of weight.

name: Optifast

It’s basically an all liquid diet that consists of 5 packets of powder that I mix with stuff throughout the day.  Each packet contains vitamins and minerals, so that after consuming all five, I get my daily allotment.  I normally mix mine with either water or coffee.

things I can have:

water, coffee, DIET COKE, crystal light, bouillon, 0 calorie sport drinks.

things I cannot have:

ALL solid food, all alcohol (boooo), all  drinks containing calories (such as juice, milk, etc), cream in my coffee, etc.

It is all monitored by my doctor, I go in for weekly weigh-ins and checkups, and every other week they draw my blood to make sure I’m not dying. Because dying would totally be missing the point of this whole adventure.

I’m mid-week three right now, and things are actually going pretty well. Here’s the breakdown of how I’ve done so far:

week one: lost 5.6lbs

week two: lost 5.2lbs

total in two weeks: 10.8lbs.

Now, I’m not a scientist, but 10.8lbs in two weeks seems pretty awesome to me.  AND I’ve already gotten a few compliments.

So that’s the gist of what I’m doing. I’m not gonna lie, a lot of the time it REALLY sucks.  Such as the first Friday I was on it, my company bought us all tickets to the clippers game (minor league baseball in Columbus) and gave everybody $15 in “clippers cash” to spend on food and drink.  Oh, and one of the owners opened up a tab at the upstairs bar.  So, all my friends were having a hell of a time, and I’m ordering bottled water.

Or last weekend, how we had plans to go down to Ironton for “Rally on the River” a big motorcycle rally.  Street vendors, beers, pizza, it was everywhere.  I totally had some beers. and some veggie pizza, and thought I had royally screwed myself that weekend…but the scale was nice to me.

Or this coming weekend.  We are going boating/camping Saturday and Sunday. I’ll be ok, right?
