easy a + snowy days

Harlow and I stayed cozy on the couch Saturday night and watched Easy A. I planned on an ok/fun to watch/girly chic-flick - but totally under estimated it! It was a fabulous/fun to watch/girly chic-flick. Highly recommended.
My only complaint would be that it heightened my already severe desire to color my hair red. I have blonde hair. It is my natural color. I tried to color my hair one time in college, going the college-budget route with a $7 box from Target. 25% of my hair stayed blonde, 25% turned strawberry blonde (the goal) 25 % turned maroon - like dark, dark maroon. And the last 25%? Pink. Like I-can't-make-this-up-Barbie-hot-pink.

Four hours at a salon and $90 later (so much for college-budget) my hair was stripped and I had made a promise to never, ever, under any circumstance, color my hair - which I have totally stuck to and never questioned. But lately I keep seeing these fabulous chicas with fabulous red hair and I just wonder...

The real thing holding me back is the slippery slope that is hair-coloring. Because once you do it, it starts fading and then you need to do it again and then years go by and you have to keep doing it you're spending more money on hair color than shoes and you just start to wish you had your real hair color back and then you have to do this whole awkward grow-out thing and it turns out in the meantime your hair kind of changed colors and you're like why Eddie Murphy, why did I do this? And he doesn't know.

I might get a wig.

In other news - a blizzard is coming. Yikes. Don't pretend like I didn't rent the third Twilight movie on my way home from work. If you're snowed in, you need entertainment. But instead tonight I watched the Bachelor, which I'm not really proud of, but there it is. I've never watched this show before and its kind of fascinating. For those following along I like Emily and Chantal. I'm pretty sure Michelle is going to try and kill the whole cast. Seriously - she's freaky and a little bit of a flooze. Part of the reason I like watching this show is so that I understand The Sports Gal's tweet recaps the next morning. The Sports Gal is the wife of one of my husband's favorite sports writers. She's kind of hilarious and doesn't talk about sports at all.

And while we're talking Twitter, if you're just on the edge of your seat after this stream of random thoughts and you really just need more (or you're snowed in and bored) you can find me here!

Don't color your hair! You're right, redheads are beautiful and I wish I had red hair too, but it's not worth it I tell you! Stick to your natural hair, it's beautiful. :)
I have been meaning to watch Easy A but I haven't had the time. But I think I'm going to do it now. I just have to.
Also, I am now following you on twitter. Alas, I am not snowed in but I am always bored and always up for a good ol' random thought. :)

I don't watch the Bachelor, but I know a lot of people who do.

As I type this, I realize you need to write more about the Jersey Shore! Please tell me you're a fan!
