This is probably TMI but whatever, it's my journal. I have run out…

Tired face
This is probably TMI but whatever, it's my journal.

I have run out of loo roll. This is bad. I forgot to get some while I was out and now it is cold and I am sleepy and headachey and ready for bed and really NOT wanting to put on three extra layers to run to the shop for loo paper.

BUT it's a very inconvenient time of the month! It's like a train wreck down there! All gore and severed limbs (okay maybe not that last part). And this makes the need for paper more pressing, but also makes the likelihood of me leaving the house again tonight very slim indeed.

I think I'll just wash. Like they did in the days before loo roll. I'm sure, uh, Cleopatra didn't fret because she was a bit gorey. She probably just bathed in goats milk or something. Hmm. We do have some skimmed in the fridge, but I think I'll just stick to soapy water.

In less gross news, I got a haircut today. I am very paranoid about getting haircuts as I find hairdressing salons the most terrifying places on earth. My mum's friend used to cut my hair in my kitchen when I was a kid, so I just don't really know how they work. And then people pull you about and massage your head and TOUCH YOU and UGH. And then how on earth does one tip a hairdresser? I never do, because I don't know if I'm meant to, and I'm sure they always think I'm stingy. And they judge you. "Oh, you don't spend much time on it do you?" they say, tutting. Well, no I don't actually. Because it's just HAIR. Washing the stuff is effort enough. My hair straighteners only come out for weddings and funerals.

ANYWAY, the point I was trying to reach was that this particular trip was fairly untraumatic. They were very chilled out, and gave me tea (I was supposed to get beer but they were obviously fooled by my baby face and I didn't want to embarrass myself by pointing out that I am actually 23 and would quite like some booze now, please) and the hairdresser did her utmost to fix the mess of a mullet-y thing I got last time. Actually, the look on her face was priceless. She even said "I'm not a miracle worker!" and then gamely attempted to make it look less stupid. She was very encouraging too, and told me to be patient and grow it out and it'd all be fine.

Anyway, she gave me a sort of long side fringe to try and make my short layers at the back look a bit longer. It's quite nice, but I'll have to see what happens when I style it myself (by style I mean wash and blast with a hairdryer. None of this weird, blow-straight with brushes malarky, which seems like so much effort, just thinking about it makes me sleepy).

I dyed it darker too. Pictures later, I'm sure.

well that was detailed! lol

i have a horrible feeling mine is going to hit just in time for the 6 hour flight to UAE! longest plane journey that i will have ever been on and i'm going to get a visit from Aunt Irma. not so good!

washing seems like a good idea. though you shouldn't use any old soap down there as it can mess with the PH balance and irritate you skin.

yay for haircuts. i'm rubbish at the hairdressers too. the girl who washed my hair must have been about 14 years old and she was asking me if i had any kids! also there's something not right with my do but i can't put my finger on it. can't wait to see your hair! ^_^ xx

Oh god, imagine the back pain on that flight! Take plenty of pain killers is my advice, and maybe one of those stick-on heat pack things that you can get...

LMAO I can't believe you went to the ph balance place! If we weren't firmly in the realms of TMI before, we are now!

My hairdresser just thought I was a child, lol. Also she gave me a magazine, which I couldn't read anyway because I have to wear glasses and that's a bit awkward when they're cutting your hair, and then she made me look in funny directions all the time anyway! All these strange little hairdresser rituals that I just don't understand...

We can hair compare Monday night!

Oh but you took it to a whole new level! :P

Really hope you are united with some loo roll soon. Never thought that would be something I ever said. My mother would probably mutter something about the old days and hand you some old newspapers (which apparently if you scrunch up enough become softer - I'm not convinced, but I'm sure there's satisfaction to be had in using photos of unfavoured celebrities/politicians).

I have hairdresser paranoioa too. It's less so since I've been to barbers because there's only two possible haircuts to get (short or shorter). But I get the worrying feeling that whenever they are touching my hair they can READ MY MIND. So I end up sitting there thinking, "Don't think about her boobies! OH NO!"

*ahem*

Pictures would be awesome.

Lol, I was in loo roll hell last night. In the end my housemate got in from her work xmas party at 1am with some! Apparently my memory is predictably bad...

My hairdresser kept angling my face while she was cutting my fringe so that I was just staring down her cleavage, which was about an inch from my nose. I had to really fight the urge to smish my face into it... Although the scissors she was wielding near my eyes were a pretty good deterrent!
