I can already feel myself having more funBring on the blonde jokes!
Yes, your intrepid weblogger has once again gone blonde. I went blonde back in college, but I didn’t have the money to pay a salon for upkeep so I always ended up tending the roots myself (which meant I had dried out straw for hair). Then came the Red Years, which lasted throughout my stay in London. It was a bit heavy and oppressive, much like the English weather. Lately here in Oz I’ve been sitting in the sunshine and thinking that I wanted to be sunshiney myself. So today I took the plunge. My hairdresser convinced me to go with “foils”, which is where they take tiny sections of hair, coat it in the dye, and wrap it in aluminum foil to keep the heat in. I was a little skeptical how I was going to be blonde when he only seemed to be dying half my hair. But I shouldn’t have doubted; it turned out great. So bring on the blonde jokes! I can take it. πŸ™‚

(I would’ve been shy about posting a picture except that my sister – who yesterday saw a recent pic of me – said that my face had gotten a lot thinner and that it looked good. So I’m in a feeling-pretty kinda mood.)

    You’re a true “Sheila” now!

    Throw a few more snags on for us!

  2. looks great! and your sister’s right – your face is looking skinny.

  3. Two thumbs up for the blonde ‘do. It kicks red’s ass.

  4. You look even more gorgeous pet.

  5. Damn you do look thin, you look like ya did in high school. And it looks much better than the flaming red.

  6. Thank you so much for all the compliments! Although they’re somewhat mitigated by the fact that the Snook, when seeing the picture I posted, exclaimed, “It doesn’t look anything like you!” Granted, I did choose the high angle for its double-chin-hiding properties, but still, I don’t think it’s that misleading. πŸ™‚

  7. hahaha…that silly snookster. i liked dad’s comment the best. i have to say, and maybe you’ll kill me for expressing it publicly…but the bangs were a good idea ’cause of those eyebrows! it is NOT mutilation, tell rodd. pluck away! at least it’s not the hair from your head! at least you’re not a trichster! (while the picture is nice, you look tired…isn’t it funny how the other day i was all positive and now i’m a critic? just observing.) πŸ™‚

  8. p.s. i didn’t realize your hair was that long. i like. mine quit growing, i think.

  9. looking great, woman! and a belated congrats on the four milesβ€”lots of positive stuff going on with yous!

  10. You and your hair look great! Don’t be shy about posting more pix.

  11. Great hair, GREAT face! You look amazing, Kris! Just send this picture to the next person who gives you flak about Atkins and it will shut ’em up but good.

  12. I love the blonde. I would love to be brave and do it, but I love my red, and wouldn’t trade it for nuthin’. It’s been with me thru thick and thin… And I must agree with the panel (lol) that you look so much different than the first pic of you that I saw, which was one of the “Guiness” pics, I think. Way to go- I’m so proud. I think i’m gonna cry…

  13. Hun, it works for you!

  14. You look great!

  15. Yeah well I was informed that WE need to try this Atkins diet out, Im gonna get ya for this….

  16. You should! It’s not like an eating-celery-and-starving diet. In fact, you get to eat a lot of meat and veg and fat. Just no junk food. Eat steak instead. πŸ™‚
