it's nearly Friday

It's much quieter in my office this week - and at home too.
None of the cars have been hit, K is doing a few 20-hour days downtown, and Youngest only goes in for his exams. At work there are no surprise parties and we are winding our way into summer with people away and no big plans.
I'm still struggling with my hair (and my health) but I think I'm making headway in both areas.
Yesterday, though, one of my beloved sons told me I looked like

a flight attendant, and it wasn't my outfit, it was my hair.
I looked at myself upon arriving at the office and though I looked more like

Paula Deen. Bless her heart. I could never really look like her as I am not so smiley. In fact, I was looking at some pictures that K uploaded from Holland and he's right (as usual, dear) when he says I smirk a lot. Smirky.
I would like to have my hair more like

Reese Witherspoon, but shorter. Just below chin length. And gray. Surely I will become impatient and bored before it can get that long.

Changing the subject: I had forgotten all about This is Indexed.

That's it for now.

K is always right.
I have proof here ... obviously I didn't know it was your THING. Now I know.
You're adorable, it's you.

I am having trouble visualizing your hair at any of those lengths. To my mental eye, yours is an elfin cut more along the lines of Jamie Lee Curtis or even #1 in the slide show on this page:

Bad hair can be such a bummer (and I am not being sarcastic here). Maybe a trip back to your stylist for a little tweaking?

You are so totally hawt. And you know I say that from a position of supreme authority.
Tinkering with ingredients is genius.
So is my plan(so far) to keep adding blonde highlights to my hair until you can't tell the blonde from the grey.

On days like these, I would be very happy to look like a flight attendant.
