how I did my do. [haircut post]

What's that word for someone who continues to do the same act - while hoping for a new outcome?  Well foolish is as foolish does... and this fool still continues to cut her own hair!  I alluded to the fact that I had recently created a mullet by 'accident'.  See, I had been trying to grow my hair out again - it was down to my shoulders - though I always tied it up or in braids.  I thought if I ignore it long enough.. it may grow into something Rapunzel would envy.  Then I got the notion that I should 'trim' it... snip.chop.hack moments later... I had once again shortened a pile of layers around my head with these long 'mullet' like layers at the back... [sigh].  Ben called it for what it was and suggested I may want to just go short again.  ;o)  Agreed.

I marched back up to the bathroom the next night and grabbed the hair buzzers - that's the sound of liberation right there.  I chopped off the mullet, buzzed the back and ended up with this fun little mop top.  So far, I'm actually kind of liking it!  If I wasn't pregnant I think I would totally reclaim some of my former years of 'rainbow' hair colour options ... I want some crazy funky colours back in my palette!  I can wait... 7 months. 

P.S.  - that is not a birthmark on my neck, it's a tattoo... the Hebrew word LAEL which means "of God (belonging to God)".

What's the craziest 'do you've ever done?
Mine was likely during the tomboy phase of childhood... where I shaved one side and had long bangs on the other... oh the glory days!

Mel :o)
