Strong afternoon coffee (and I never have afternoon coffee) plus daylight savings may mean a late bedtime for me. Here’s hoping my family truly wore me out this weekend. Zoo and playground today!

I asked my hairdresser to make me blonder this weekend. I have to cover my grays every 2 months and I figured, if the whole thing is fake, I can do whatever color I want.
I wanted to try blonde. But I was thinking “I can’t be blonde, I am a brunette.” Like that is the way it is and always SHALL BE. The Yankee in me was saying, “you must be natural” and part of me said “you’ll be pretending to be something you are not.” Which is true, but I already am, pretending to be a person without tons of gray hair.
It was a revelation. The color is not so crazy (the incredible Essam at Fringe who has done my hair for more than 10 years always does a natural and subtle job) but now I see possibilities I have not seen before.
If I can be blonde, can I also be fit? Can I pursue comedy and leave law firms? Can I move to Las Vegas?
Yes, of course I can. Its my life and only I limit it. For now, I’m just starting with highlights.
I recommend you try something different and see what it opens up for you. Can you have black coffee? Go to bed at 9? Wear lipstick? Give it a shot.

As I walked down H street tonight a little brass band and second line burst out of the church playing and singing “when the saints go marching in.” Such a nice surprise

Could you marry a man who isn’t your intellectual or professional equal? Sure. But the likelihood is that it will be frustrating to be with someone who just can’t keep up with you or your friends… And if you start to earn more than he does? Forget about it. Very few men have egos that can endure what they will see as a form of emasculation.
I just don’t even know what to say about this article. She actually says:
"An extraordinary education is the greatest gift you can give yourself. But if you are a young woman who has had that blessing, the task of finding a life partner who shares your intellectual curiosity and potential for success is difficult. Those men who are as well-educated as you are often interested in younger, less challenging women."
Is this article trolling me?!
Viv woke me insistently at 430 but I would not get up to feed her and she eventually gave up. I smelled a big poo and heard a lot of scratching after that.
I woke up at 830 to a pile of puke next to my head (on my freshly laundered sheet) and a poo outside the litter box.
I had no trouble giving her ear drops this morning.
Watching the original for the first time. Shit is dark! Not to mention Brooke Shields was 16 and her costar 25 when they made it. Arson, car accidents, insane asylums. Gad.
In case you’re having a bad day, meet Roo, the two-legged chihuahua, and Penny, the fluffy chicken, who just happen to be best friends. Both were rescued by Duluth Animal Hospital and now spend their days together.
Babies! I need that fluffy chicken more than I have ever needed anything in my life.
