My backyard: before....
Everyone yell "Thanks, Czarina, for getting VB's yard to resemble usable land rather than a toxic urban rainforest!!" -- Ugh, seriously, it was bad, y'all. This was the best early Xmas present ever. My yard is pretty. Full of fire ants which bite the crap out of me, but pretty nonetheless. Thanks, Mom.
My hair: before...(and no, that is not me in the pic)
and after...(again, just to clarify, not me.)
Needless to say, it is taking some getting used to. My hair has never been one color before (and only this dark one other time) and I am not so sure about it. I also cut off more than I wish I had. But, oh well. It grows back. Before I die. Sometime.
For now, I am a bobbed brunette.
But I'm going right back to shoulder-length blonde ASAP!! I do not feel like myself!
In other news...
Thanks to the wonders of myspace (shut up, you know you're guilty of it, too), I have gotten some scoopage on Cute Neighbor. He'd been gone for about a week, so I just thought he was on vacay. But one week turned into almost 2, so I began to get curious. Cue the myspace stalking.
Ok, remember how his dad has cancer? Well, it turns out CN is not on vacation. He's been with his parents at some hospital somewhere out of town. His dad is getting tests/biopsies for the cancer that is spreading all in his body. (Ugh. Depressing AND stressful!) He stayed with his parents in a hotel room for about 2 weeks. I don't know about you, but I myself would have to assassinate The Czarina if forced to be within such close proximity to her for that amount of time. Aside from mentioning that he really wanted a beer and seemed to be bored and restless, he was taking it all in good stride.
What a great guy, huh? Loyal, patient, caring....*sigh*
He came back today.
I may or may not be tailgating for the USC game on Saturday.
I may or may not be inviting Cute Neighbor to come with...
...after all, the guy needs a beer and something to get his mind off of all of that. And I'd be more than happy to oblige.
Let's hope he doesn't find my new hair as hideous as I do.
Let's also hope that he lets me borrow his lawn mower. My backyard needs a trim!
