Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Even normal haired people without tons of hairspray would be good in some of those magazines. I'm of the limp-ultra-straight-haired too and nothing in a magazine looks good on me because I hate styling products. If I wanted my hair to be crispy, I would have asked for crispy hair. Okay, it's fine for some occasions but other times I want my hair to move.
Good luck with the haircut.

Bess, you will look delightful in any cut that highlights those sparkling eyes...

Regarding a list for the blog -- I keep one. I have a Notepad .txt file open at all times named "BlogFodder", and whenever I deem something blog-worthy, I add it to the list so that on days when I have blogger's block, I can look at it and pull something from there. It doesn't always work though - I don't always feel like blogging even about the topics on the list. But it helps more often than not.

I, too, have thin stick-straight hair. I combat it with the ever-so-UN-stylish perm, which allows me to leave the house with wet hair.

Oh, and there's a good tutorial on modifying your blog template here:

Oh La - Blogland just sits out there like a giant vacuum, ready to suck me up. There are so many things I’d like to do to my dreadfully boring and error sprinkled template. There are photographs I would be glad to share in spite of the fact that Hello lured me on like a bad date, leaving me unsatisfied and slightly tainted, in the car parked by the fountain at Byrd Park. There are several things I want to write about and it just looks like there will never be enough time. Perhaps a list might be helpful to me. Perhaps I can tick off one each week or so and be sure I really get all my thoughts out there - (where are those smilies when you need them?) for your delectation and erudition.

Diary as literature

I really want to write a post about why I blog
With the corollary about why I read other blogs

Diary as psychological delving
And something about trying - and failing - to reward myself - and why
Living with fear - or not - with a sideline about comment envy

Diary as history
I do intend to write the pioneer girl saga - really I do.

Oh La - and this morning I go in way early for a hair-cut - and manicure - and yes, yes, yes it’s decadently indulgent and you have just seen an ENFP in action as I shift gears with only a moderate squeal of tires, leaving just a short rubber track curving behind me.

Speaking of short - I am thinking of getting a very short hair cut. I have been talking it over with Brenda for a long time and I have one of those Short Haircut magazines to take with me to show her styles I like. B says don’t buy those things - they’re unreal - but look, instead, at a Penny’s catalog - where done-up models aren’t trying to be outré - but to sell Penny’s clothing. But I found a number of hairstyles for fine limp haired women with wide cheeks - even if they are all 18. Think what the magazine industry could do if they’d only put out one single magazine with hairstyles on 40 - 60 year old faces that are still stylish. Imagine those headlines.

Hide Those Jowl with Layers.

The Gel that gives you a crown for your crowning glory.

Wispy Bangs That Don’t Point To Your Eye Bags!

Do the style pundits think fortylevendyhundredthousand women don’t want to look good or something? Sheesh. Who would lose out on all the $ to be made selling dreams to those of us who are no longer paying orthodontist bills!

man - I’m even later now. Got to run!
