Pulling My Hair Out

Evidently, last week--when everyone else was blogging about what they were thankful for--I was thankful for Weezer.  A little over 12 years ago, I went to one of their concerts with a hawt guy I'd been trying way too hard to just be friends with.  Our 12th wedding anniversary is in less than three weeks, and we're still listening to Weezer together.

And this morning, I pulled out my one white (not gray) hair again.  I only have one.  I don't have a problem with my hair changing color.  In fact, I think white hair is beautiful.  And I think this girl needs a nose.  Really.  

I wanted to bleach my hair white when I was 20, but my mom convinced me the reason the model in the picture had short hair was because she'd destroyed her hair.  So, I'm fine with my hair turning white.  The problem is I have one white hair growing right in the middle of the top of my head.  The white hair is always conspicuously shorter than the dark hairs surrounding it (couldn't have anything to do with my yanking it every three months or so), so it sticks out at weird angles.  It looks kind of like this, only whiter and without the bird.   

And it reminds me of the nursery rhyme: 

Once there was a girl with a curl
right in the middle of her forehead.
And when she was good, 
she was very, very good.
And when she was bad,
she was horrid. 

You thought this post was going to be about my NaNoWriMo experience.  Didn't you?   


  1. Isn't it nice when you share the same musical tastes as your spouse? Congrats on 12 years.

  2. We don't agree on everything, but it is great when we do. Thanks.

  3. Aw, congratulations on twelve happy years!! My husband and I saw Weezer together about five years ago. So much fun.

    And white hair IS beautiful! :)

  4. Steph - Thank you! Why doesn't that surprise me? Blue and red hair are beautiful too. I wanted to dye my hair blue too, but it was against the rules of the University I attended. A friend of mine and I dyed each other's hair red the same summer I went to the Weezer concert though.

  5. I just read that Rivers was in an accident, and Weezer cancelled their December tour. I hope he's feeling better soon.

  6. Hi, Daisy!

    NaNoWriMo was great! I didn't finish, but I have more than 25,000 words I didn't have before. I'm going to try again next year. I can't possibly catch a nasty flu that turns into bronchitis two Novembers in a row. Can I?

    Congratulations on your book! I'll have to watch for it next year.

  7. I found one "white" hair several months ago and had to take it to Nate to have him clarify that I did, indeed have one. It was a weird feeling. :)

  8. You're right--she does need a nose. And congratulations on your anniversary :D

  9. Made me feel weird too, Rorie. Thanks for the yummies!

    Thanks, Sarah. Our anniversary is this Saturday.
