I Was Going for "Rock Star," but I Think I Got "Squire"

Not sure I'm happy with this haircut. It was supposed to be shortening up my previous Rock Star haircut... but now I look more like a knight's squire. If I was thinner and in better shape, this might be hot. As it is... I dunno.

It also occurred to me today that I could lose 50 lbs without any real trouble, and then I'd be able to fit into trendy clothes and sizes, and yet not quite look like an Auschwitz victim. I still find this idea oddly appealing, which says a lot about my current mental state.

I'm having another one of those days where I wish I was better.

Hey, it could be a lot worse. Last time I tried for "rock star" I got "fuzzy headed grandma."

I've always had long long hair which I wore in a tidy, braided bun (secured with actual hairpins for fancy occasions, or a pencil the rest of the time). But when it started to get grey it looked like someone else's brown hair stapled to the back of my head. I cut it all off a couple of years ago & have been pretty happy with it, but it seems like no matter what the haircut looks like when I leave the salon (glamorous movie star with my sunglasses on and chic intellectual with my regular glasses on), the next day I look like a middle-aged librarian. With fuzzy hair & a few grandchildren.

Careful, Kameron, with that weight loss urge. I did that a year or so ago (lost 50 lbs with no real huge effort or diet) and now I won't be happy until I've got protruding shoulder blades and prominent hipbones.

PS, your CD is in the mail.

And the thing with the weight issue at this point is that it's not like losing weight will make me any happier. I'm comfortable where I'm at: being thinner will just make me more "socially acceptable" to my mind, and you know, if I *know* it's not going to make me any happier, why do I still even consider it? It's just that moment where you go, "I can be fit and buff, and fit into cool clothes..." The problem, as noted, is that there's a chance it could become an obsession, and there are far more important things in my life I'd rather be obsessing about.

Re: CD.

Yay! Thanks!
