All Dressed Up With No Where to Go


February 24, 2009


I applied to take the big scary test to get my hairstyling license a month and a half ago, and now I have to wait until they mail me back a date.  I’m not so good at the waiting. I suck at it. Especially when it’s waiting to take a nasty test that makes me all panicky and clammy and uncomfortable when I think about it. And I’m still waiting, and I don’t have a date. But now it’s  like I’m all dressed up in my crushed velvet dress, with my hair crimped, and I’m just waiting for my date to show up. Every day I walk to the mail box, peek my head, but and all I see is ads for mattresses and credit card applications. This is a good thing, the longer it takes for me to get a date, the more time I get to practice. 

Speaking of practicing, I did a practice class yesterday with my loyal and loving friend Jenielle. She let me do all sorts of awful things to her all because she loves me, but first I had to buy her a cheeseburger and a coke. 


  • I put shaving cream in her hair. 


  • Then I put three acrylic nails on, but only painted one red, because I’m crazy like that. 


  • Then I gave her one curly tendril soaked in gel, and placed it right on her cheek. And I’m pretty sure she felt sassy. 


So, thanks Jan for making my life a little bit easier, even though it kinda sucked a bit for you. 

And now, I’ll leave you with this fantastic, yet creepy photo of bald heads on tables. 



I would need a lot more then a burger and a coke…..Just sayin.

I could never go to beauty school because I have an irrational and crippling fear of severed heads.

they make me woozy, and combined with perm solution and whatever other goo they would have me up to my elbows in, i would probably puke and/or pass out on a daily basis.

I admire your strength and bravery.

Plus you actually have to like, touch people, to do your job. I shudder at the thought.
