For all the people who have been breathlessly anticipating this, and who cast votes for my new look, today is the day I get the makeover. I found a competent hairguy who will ruthlessly cut off my crowning glory (alternately known as a bird nest or a brillo pad) and dye blond what’s left. Well, not really blond. Caramel is what I’m hoping for, anything but black and gray. Right now I look like I’m wearing an angry skunk.
