Can Holly face the truly terrifying human interaction of her twice-annual hair cut without the aid of chemical intervention? ONLY TIME WILL TELL, however, Past Me, a doubting Thomas if ever there were one, has packed Future Me half a dose of Xanax.

My anxiety seems to have gotten a lot worse recently, and I can't tell if it's because my grandmother died last month (yes, it sucked just as much as watching the first one die), because of national fuckery, or because my antidepressant has gotten less effective in dealing with it after three years. Maybe I'm the lucky winner of all three! I've already thought about calling and cancelling my appointment twice this morning, even though I literally have not had a hair cut since June. Maybe my antidepressant IS still effective, and it is the voice in my head saying, "Suck it up, buttercup."

Anyway, I was thinking about getting a pixie cut, because my preference is short hair always, but I might also just get my current style cut off at the chin, because apparently this cut makes my face look pleasant. Allegedly. And let's be clear, the person alleging this is my sister. Let's clarify further that I have started saying "let's be clear" on a daily basis as a tribute to President Obama.

Probably should not have had the second coffee. I am wearing the proper shoes for a long walk after Schrodinger's haircut, so whether or not that occurs I'm going to try to walk it off for a couple of hours. I did that last night after work regardless of improper footwear and earned two blisters, which was my own damn fault, which is also an accurate description of the origin of most of my problems.

I guess God really WAS mad about all the gay porn I read.

Any god who isn't down with the manfondling or indeed ladyfondling isn't worth following. Did you get your hairs done in the end? I have been ... failing to read my flist for some reason.

I DID. One of the two reasons I like my stylist so much is that he is not a motormouth. (The other reason is that he is an excellent hairdresser.) The other stylist working on Saturday had a client as well, and they talked enough for all four of us. At one salacious point, I met my dude's eyes in the mirror and he was like, "The salon is always. . . interesting."

I didn't get the pixie cut, figuring I'd err on the side of conservatism -- I showed up to work with a very short cut a few years ago and heard about it for weeks, from everyone. I did buy a bottle of fancy shampoo though.

I frequently fail to comment, but I really love reading your longer entries. I have one open at the moment AND MAY PERHAPS LEAVE A SCRIBBLING UPON IT. Count your blessings.

I'm imaging him like a gay Clint Eastwood or something now, really laconic... I came here to cut hair and ... no that's pretty much it.

A fine compromise! I guess you could always gradually inch shorter and shorter so that they acclimatise to the idea of you having short hair.

MY BLESSINGS ARE MANY AND DIVERSE and making longer entries helps me deal with my End of Week Amnesia which is becoming worse and worse the more I do night shift. Durr.

I feel like my brain has turned into some kind of cold oatmeal.

Do you have any opportunity to get on day shift? I worked second shift (noon to 11:30 pm - I don't know if second shift is the same on that side of The World) for about a year and a half and it took a long time for me to adjust to a 8 to 5 schedule after that job.

Nah, no chance. Besides, I keep this job for the 7 days off out of every 14. It certainly isn't for the pay.

WHOA. I suppose when the pay is crap it's good that at least you aren't there eternally.

Yeah, for a full-time job the pay is bad but for a 2/3rds-time job, which is what it technically is, it's not so bad.

I don't actually remember what it is? Data entry of some sort? See aforementioned oatmeal brain.

Donkey-end PR: media-monitoring. I have to staple my mouth to the shitpipe of the news and ingest.

Oh dear god, no wonder you have 7 out of 14 days off. Is it still a human centipede if it is one part human and one part shitpipe?

Bro I do not feel human any more after 2 years of this coprophagia.

ON THE PLUS SIDE, I just learned the word coprophagia, so thank you for your sacrifice.
