...random funny stuff...







I really need to quit thinking today...no good ever comes from that, right? lol! My insomnia has been SO bad this week, I can't stand it! I'm going to bed at 1 am, and tossing & turning until I fall asleep...at f*ng 6:30 or 7 am!! I did give up & turn the tv on last night at 3 am...my favorite movie was on..."Phonebooth"! I used to be able to take a 25 mg Benadryl if I had a hard time falling asleep (which wasn't very often), but not now, even 2 25mgs won't work. Bullshit!
I was thinking about when Tif was in school, it really was fun...she was a cheerleader, & ran cross country, & was on the school's soccer team, and all kinds of other stuff! And she was the most popular kid I ever knew! And she liked me! lol! I was definitely NOT one of the popular crowd in high school! How did I get so lucky as to have THIS girl?
So, when she and her friends were getting their senior pictures taken, one of the girls was bitching about her hair, always! I don't know why, she had naturally curly dark hair, and if she ever let it be curly, it looked really beautiful, it was the kind of curls you can only hope to get when you get a perm, and her hair was down to the middle of her back. She flat-ironed it every day, cuz she wanted it straight so bad...wow, that had to take a couple hrs a day to do! So she was telling us all about how she ALWAYS wanted straight blonde hair. She had begged and begged her mom to get her Johnson's baby shampoo. So when she finally got a bottle, she had her mom use that on her, of course Moms always will humor their daughters.
After she got her hair towel-dried, Brit looked in the mirror & started bawling her eyes out...she thought that shampoo would've made her hair look just like the little girl's on the bottle, straight & blonde!! That was funny as hell! Not to the two of them at the time, though, I'm sure...
Then there was the time when Tif was in maybe the 2nd or 3rd grade, she and her friend across the street were walking home from school, & were arguing about something, & Tif whapped her friend in the stomach with her bookbag. Then Tif got home & she was crying about the fight. She got all the sympathy in the world...until Kev asked her about the way it ended & we found out that we hadn't known about the whap in the stomach with the bookbag!
And the time she had a friend stay overnight, and they found a way to have fun on the stairs...we were downstairs watching tv, and all of a sudden it sounded like a herd of rhinos! I got up & went around the corner to the bottom of the stairs, & Tif & her friend were sitting in laundry baskets, sliding down the stairs from the second floor to the first, banging to a sudden stop against the wall at the bottom of the stairs!

It strikes me as kinda sad that your acquaintance couldn't enjoy the hair she was given. Even sadder, she probably damaged her hair trying to make it look the way she thought it should.

Nothing is wrong with blonde hair, if you're a blonde. If you want to change color for something different, I can understand that too. But this?

Of course, this is from a man who won't color the gray hairs he has coming in.

Years ago I did that with a flat iron and I threw it out after one try because it broke my hair off. I later pouted over all the straight-haired women running around (when is that style going away--by the way???) I was the top of the hair chain in the 80s when my long tousled wavy hair was popular, but I have to say, I embrace my curls now and I never ever straighten it anymore. Besides, I think it makes women's heads look big. Hee hee. With age comes wisdom. The insomnia sucks. I can relate. I've had a bout too. Changing the routine might help. I never sleep well if I've been watching TV beforehand because it sort of lulls your body into thinking it's already asleep. Eventually, it gets tired enough to insist to sleep again. Take care, Libby-Girl

Wicked! I used to go down our stairs in a laundry basket or in a sleeping bag filled with pillows. Girls are universally the same!

Libby said...
