12 Hours Later ...

Well, I posted that book cover at 11AM, and it's now 11PM. The day is ending better than it began. No need to go into details about how it started, and no desire to go into details of how it improved - just know that I am now a strawberry blonde!

Today was my big makeover, and no pictures - yet. You will have to wait and see them in the paper. (coming probably May 20.)

It's VERY weird when I catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror in passing.

And they called it strawberry blonde but I don't know (yet) if I agree, it's definitely got red in it and it's definitely got blonde in it. I'll let you decide for yourself.

And I had more makeup on today than I have had in the past 20 years, and that all got washed off when I got home - it looked good, but it didn't look like me. She used LATEX mascara on me. LATEX. Every lash was coated with its own little rubber casing. Very weird.

And I had my eyebrows waxed.

And I got my book signed by Christopher himself, who is every bit as gorgeous in person as he is in the book - and he's a lot taller.

Well, I hope the terrible horrible no-good very bad day was not just the makeoever. Because makeup does wash off and everything else grows out or back. Although I would love latex mascara.

When I got my hair cut, I was worried that it wasn't a good move, but I've gotten so many people complimenting me on it (and not in that way that makes you wonder how horrible you used to look) that I finally decided to trust them and agree.

I can't wait to see you!

But pole, you...I hope today is better.
