hair rut

I’m in, what I like to call, a hair rut.   My hair is almost at the length I want, but still needs a few inches.   I need the couple of inches as a buffer because when I cut my hair, it stops growing for months.  I’d like to get it just a little longer – then snip snip to make it healthier.

On days when I don’t have time to tame the waves into curls or totally straighten it, I’m sporting one of these four looks.   A braid, a pony, just down, or a messy knot.

Lately when I haven’t styled my hair I feel I resemble Ruth Fisher from Six Feet Under.


I needed some inspiration to pull me out of my ponytail rut, and these looks appear to be relatively easy to execute:

Love a messy bun & headband

Pretty ponytail:

Half up-half down (love the knot)

This would require scissors, from a professional (I made my own bags awhile ago, it was awful)

Or in a perfect world, I could roll out of bed each day with Isla Fisher’s hair:

I’m going to try messy bun and headband today, but odds are good that can quickly dissolve into a braid.   Always one bad hair shake away from Ruth Fisher.


Insomnia blows,but it does allow you to find some fun stuff online !   Every few months one of my favorite sites to visit is the wayback machine.   Wanna see what a website looked like in 2000?   NO PROBLEM!   Because I’m a radio nerd I tend to go back and look at my old station’s websites, it’s highlarious (especially one particular period when I was put in charge of web design with MS

I’m still in this weird sick/allergy funk.   I’ve got the hot redness under my nose, headache, I sound like an old man, excellent conditions for being a hermit.   Over the weekend I watched a marathon of Six Feet Under while I was trying to rest off the mung.   Never do that.   Six Feet Under is a brilliant show, I adore everything about it. but watching 6 episodes in a row is brutally emotional.    I did get to FINALLY see the final episode, tore me up.   And now it can tear you up too:


Tear.  Love the song, it’s called “Breathe Me” and it’s by Sia.
