Maintenance.

So I realize there are hours upon hours of great TV out there, much of which I never seem to see. So many South Park episodes I miss and try to catch online. John Stewart and the Daily Show...yep, miss it all the time. However, one show seems to be on my internal radar. Six days before its supposed to air I'm thinking about it. Wondering, what WILL they be wearing and how will Blair do her hair? Does anyone else watch Gossip Girl and marvel at the hair on that womanchild? I swear, I did my hair today ONLY because I watched last night and felt I needed to somehow step up my game. And actually, it turned out quite cute.

In other hair news. As I was curling away I noticed a shimmering, shininess in the mirror. Could it be? Another one? Its like the scalp has an alarm clock that goes off blasting as soon as you turn 30 and tells hair its okay to stop producing pigment. Sure I've pulled the occasional silver hair out of my head before, like one or two a year. I've pulled 5 in the last two weeks. Its pressure enough that as women most of us tend to pluck our eyebrows, put on a little make-up in the morning, hit the gym, shave our legs, and maybe even pluck the few rampant black hairs that pop up in places I'll keep to myself. I'm sure there are people out there who will read this and say that I'm putting that pressure on myself. Go natural! Maybe when I'm 40 or 50. But for now, let the maintenance begin. Or rather, continue.

I feel your pain. I plucked about 5 tonight...it's amazing how they stand up like a beacon when they are coming in...
