train of thought running local

here
comes
the
 train of thought local
join me

 lazy
 didnt feel like washing/drying my hair
 especially
 since it was just cut 
when its just cut
it does not like  
washing
conditioning
hot air blow drying

 it reacts
 by 
dropping 
dead

couldnt bear the thought
 of 
expending 
all 
that energy

 hey
 it is not easy
 blow drying
 my 
own
 hair

 i could do better
 with 
a third arm

 without it

not easy

 i bet a lot of you will agree

 so
 i took myself
 to my local salon
 to my friends 
 sandy
 and
 nicole
 who gives the most amazing head massage

 i told nicole how much i have missed her 
really
 one 
does
 not 
massage one's head/scalp
 in the shower

 its exhausting

it takes a long time

 my skin gets that 
water logged look
odd 
'cause my skin is drier then the mojave

apres my hair indulgence
 i went into a little shop
 it seems the only way i am getting near paris
 for now
 is via a local boutique
 called
 montmartre

i bought this missoni-ish cardigan
 in wonderful
 browns and golds

 a girl cant have enough cardigans
 they are a lifesaver
 for anyone
having hot flashes

a nice tank top under a cardigan
saved a friend of mine
 many times

never had hot flashes myself
 i 
wanted to kill people
 i know its hard to believe
 but
 then
 i met 
estrace

 my days of contemplating murder 
are
in the past

 just like this old shot
 of
 very
 unattractive
 glass towers

i played with in topaz labs
 til it turned into something
 i wouldnt be ashamed to claim

  i am on a building kick
 like
 all
 my obsessions
 this too will fade

  1. I enjoy blowdrying my hair, I do it every morning. Hot flashes are the pits.

  2. I want a head massage and a blowout!

    I've gone off HRT, cos I have been on it for years and they say you shouldn't, soooo.... But I tried once before and I was like you, I wanted to kill somebody, so I went back on, on a lower dose. *sigh* Cold turkey has got me on the run, as John Lennon sang!

  3. I got my hair done yesterday and I feel so much better. I don't do anything to my hair except dry the bangs a little so they don't hang flat against my forehead.
    Hey, if Paris doesn't work, you can always fly to SF and I'll come see you.

  5. Oh...what a delightful free verse! Actually, I'm fascinated by the all-glass buildings---NYC is the only place where I can see one!

  6. All aboard your train-of thought! LOVE it-haven't had a chance to tell you how sorry I am your plans for Paris were put on hold..trusting it will happen and be even better than ever!
    Gloomy in Nebraska BUT I actually saw some little star flowers trying to pop up (of course not even buds yet, but I will take little patches of green where I can get them!)

  7. I am quite inept at blow drying my hair, and what's wrong with a little obsession anyway? Love the colors here.

  9. my old hairdresser used to do a wonderful scalp massage. now the new place does not do them but I think they all should and then promote it because it is a fabulous perk! great photo, as always!!

  11. true confession i never blow dry my hair. when i had a c-section and the doc told me to blow dry the incision after a shower i had to go buy a blow dryer.

  12. Oh, I want to look in those office windows. And, yes, estrace is IT...LOL!

  13. I just cannot blowdry my hair, so I let it dry naturally, it goes all curly, then I use the straighteners on it..sounds like it might take ages but not so, do it at night, straightening takes less than ten mins, lasts three/ four days. I agree cardi's are fantastic, especially in autumn and spring. Love the pretty colour of your sky rise building Daryl.

  14. You do make me laugh. I start reading what you have to say, with no idea where you are going to take us...always amused :). Love it! Nice photo TOO!
