Hair Thieves, Wolverine, and Drag Queens

So, with this whole TTC break stuff I’ve realized that I haven’t paid much attention to myself nor have I treated myself great. I’m not saying that I’ve been hating myself or anything like that, I just haven’t really made an effort. I’ve allowed myself to gain weight, with my hair growing long I’ve gotten lazy with my appearance. I almost never wear makeup, my hair was just always thrown back in a pony, etc.

I got my mark. starter kit on Friday and immediately tore into it and used some of the makeup I was given, and I’ve got to say that I’m REALLY happy with it thus far. I’m going to make another post after this one with some general reviews of the things I’ve tried so far. I’ve got another package coming in the mail today with a foundation and some miscellaneous items that I’m really anxious to try but so far, so good.

The weekend was great. On Saturday I chopped my hair off. Well, I didn’t. I let someone do it for me. I’ll post before/after pictures in my next post so you can see the difference! Needless to say, it’s nice to have all those split ends GONE, and that excess hair gone as well. I love having my hair short and shy away from it sometimes because I’m always afraid that I look like a boy with short hair. This stems from childhood experiences (I cut ALL MY HAIR OFF when I was about 6, and people called me “little boy” all the time) and also some unkind remarks from an ex that made me really self-conscious. But anyway, I really like the way the cut turned out.

Saturday night I hung out with two ladies I haven’t seen since my days of working at the Y. It was a LOT of fun. We went downtown to Hair of the Dog and ate and I had some beers. Afterward I went with one of the girls to a party/get together. We hung out there for a little while, I saw another Y coworker I hadn’t seen in almost two years and also a guy I used to work with at Chili’s. After that, the girl I went to the party with and I ended up going down to Alan Gold’s which is the big “gay bar” here in town. I say “gay bar” in quotes, because it’s become a place where straight girls go to dance and have fun, too. I also think a lot of straight guys go looking to pick UP straight girls, which just doesn’t make sense to me because the reason we straight girls go is so we can dance without having to be HASSLED by the straight guys. Whatever.
Anyway we got there and it. was. PACKED. We arrived in the middle of the drag show, and if you know me at all you know I LOVE DRAG QUEENS. I am in awe of them and think they are amazing. So we watched about three acts, and then went to the restroom. When we got out of the restroom the show was over and the dance floor was opened back up. We squeezed our way out and danced (I say “danced” but it was so damn crowded it was more like jumping up and down in place) until we both decided it was way too crowded and we left.

Sunday was a good day also. Josh and I came to an agreement; he would go for breakfast with me at IHOP (he hates IHOP) if we could go see a matinee of Wolverine. I agreed, and that’s how we spent most of yesterday. Later in the afternoon we took a walk along the Riverfront with Dave and Deborah. My dumb ass wore flip flops and now I have epic blisters, making walking very uncomfortable.

So that was my weekend. It was a good one. Now it’s Monday, boooo. It’s not all bad though, I’ve been treating myself to Starbucks on Monday mornings for a few weeks so that gives me something to look forward to on Monday mornings!

Okay, next post: The Great Hair Adventure of 2009!

  1. This started eating at me yesterday evening or I wouldnt be here this morning postin it. If you can tell, I'm a little reluctant, but oh well…When I first met Sean I had short hair, really short hair and one night he began telling me about his feelings on the whole hair thing and then lead into a story about you cutting your hair and him calling you Nathan. I know, he can be an ass. A year or so later, when we were all still doing MySpace, he kept up with you and saw a pic of you with really short hair. He told me he really liked it, that you reminded him of a character in a book. Now, I'm not sure which book it was or even what character, but he made it a point to tell me. So, take it what you will. I filed it under just-crap-we-talk-about-while-drinking-a-beer, but maybe it'll have more meaning to you. :)Anyway, I'm done
