I haven't been able to stop laughing since yesterday. I've been planning to have my hair highlighted since this past summer, and I finally made an appointment last month. I was so excited. It's been so long since I've had it done that I even sprung for the most expensive, classy hair salon in town.

Yesterday was the day of destiny, and as has been the plan, I asked for blonde and light red hightlights. Strawberry blonde, I said.

It came out light blonde and orange. Bright, burnt orange.

For about five seconds, I was speechless, and then I couldn't stop grinning. I have no idea why, but I adore it. I love it to pieces. I look in the mirror and laugh and grin.

Orange, really? But it's true. My hair has very obvious orange stripes, and I think it's adorable. Very punky, but adorable. And it doesn't help that I also got it cut in a very distinctive style that I adore even more than I do the color! Plus, for someone who is absolutely hopeless at styling hair, I can actually style it and it looks perfect, and it takes like ten minutes from start to finish. Super easy!

I will attempt pictures, but so far it just isn't showing properly on camera. Looks like a pretty normal dark brown in photographs. I will have to work on that.

In other news, I have become obsessed with jdramas. So far, love love love Hana-Kimi, Hana Yori Dango and am partway through Nodame Cantabile which is bizarre but cute. Am midway through downloading the first three episodes of Gokusen. I want to look into a few kdramas. I watched the first few episodes of Coffee Prince a while back, and I want to finish that, then try to find a few more.

Plus, of course, thank you to everyone who commented on my last post. I am still upset about Ginger, but more upbeat now. I think denying that it was happening and then having a bunch of things happen that made it impossible to ignore she wasn't going to be around forever kind of made me panic. But she's all right for now. Healthy, and still my darling dog. I am learning to relax and just love her each and every day without worry, simply being grateful that we have her.
