What’s that saying? No, not that blondes are dipshitty airheads (’cause we kinda sorta are ……… sometimes). Not that we’re bimbos (’cause we kinda sorta are …… just not as much as I’d like ;-)). Not that we can’t count higher than 20 without being barefoot. Oh yeah, that we have more fun. Huh, not sure about that. I think the preconceived notions about hair colors are as follows (and yes, I’m sure when I get them wrong, someone will step up and correct me):
Blondes: have more fun (duh)
Brunettes: are smart
Redheads: fiery and wild
Do blondes really have more fun? I was thinking of testing this theory actually. Not that I’m having all that much fun lately anyway which may skew the results, but I guess there’s something to be said for setting the bar low. Now why on earth would I want to change my hair color? I don’t even color my hair as it is. I embrace my greys. You can’t really tell that they’re grey as mine aren’t actually grey, they’re more of an opaque-ish white. Which pretty much just looks like highlights in my naturally multi shaded blonde head o’ hair. I don’t even get haircuts. A bit phobic about that. Probably leads back to when I was younger and thought I’d try ‘short’ to see how it looked. Let me assure you that it did not look pretty. I’ve been thru many hairstyles in my life. That horrifically short bob. I got the ‘Aniston’ when it was all the rage. Went thru the Farah Faucett phase in middle school. Tried John Bon Jovi’s cut (when it was longer) when I was in high school. Hell, I even shaved the side of my head once. Okay, not the whole side, mind you, but a good 2 inches over each ear ….. no clue why I did that, but I think I also wore those beige work boots that summer as well. Maybe I was embracing my inner lesbian? After all the experimentation, I’ve decided that long and straight is really what works best for me. Sometimes I have bangs, sometimes I don’t, but pretty much I haven’t changed my hair in over 10 years. I wear it in a ponytail when I work, so really don’t much care. I’ve tried different hair colors too in the past. Nothing drastic, mind you, but I was brunette for a short stint. Me no likee. I was also a strawberry blonde for a while. That one I did like. No clue what others thought as it doesn’t much matter because if I think I look good, then I feel good, so screw everyone else. 😉
As I have no date tonight (thanks Click) because he wants to push it back a week (yeah, like that’s going to happen), I have a big evening planned of drinking alone and watching Jeff Lewis on my beloved Flipping Out. Mind you that I have the entire week carefully scheduled out so that I can minimize my ‘alone time’ which is actually something I don’t often mind, yet I think I need distractions to get out of my head. What were we talking about? Oh yeah, what color said annoyingly whiney head should be. Was thinking of trying Strawberry Blonde again. Sadly I’ll still be the same annoying me inside though, just in a slightly fiestier package. Maybe I’ll just stick with plain ole blonde. I sure hope that ‘having more fun’ thing kicks in soon though! 🙂
I have decided, however, that I am going to stop trying to ‘fit in’ when I go out. It’s just not my style. I’m a Leo for shit’s sake. I like to stand out. I like to be noticed (hopefully for good reasons and not bad). I like to be unique. I am going to stop wearing stupid flats just because one of my shitty ex-friends told me I was single because I’m too tall when I wear awesome shoes that I love and guys are intimidated to talk to me. Guess what? I’ve been wearing flats for almost a year now and I’m still single, so too bad shorties. I love my hot heels. If you can’t handle a 6’2″ amazon, then you’re not the man for me anyway. And I’m pulling all my bright colors back out of my closet. I don’t want to ‘blend’. Although I am a big fan of neutrals and classic whites and blacks, I also love exceptionally bright colors. They make me happy. And that’s pretty much what it’s all about, right? So I’m going to be a really friggin’ tall, unusually dressed straight haired blonde with a big ole’ smile on my face and bright pink lipstick. So there!
My god this was a disjointed post ………. sorry ’bout that 😉
