Randomly welcoming Friday

~If tomorrow is Saturday, it must be rain in the forecast.

~As I drove up to the hairdresser’s yesterday a woman was walking around the parking lot (it shares a lot with a lot of other businesses) with perm rollers in her hair, a plastic bag wrapping her head and wearing a cape.  And she was smoking. With perm solution in her hair. She was flammable. And looking quite NON chic, I must add. I just wondered about people. I mean really.

~Perm solution is something I had not smelled in years and years. But you do not ever forget the horrible smell. It is heinous.

~I got 2 perms in my life. I deeply, immediately regretted both.

~I am now embracing the straight haired me.

~At lunchtime today, the local radio station started playing Christmas songs  through to Christmas day. NOTHING could have made me happier today. Nothing.

~I love Christmas music and enjoy hearing it for this length of time. I do realize that some don’t enjoy it as much as I do, but I cannot get enough. They are uplifting, beautiful, funny or touching . I love them all. Before the radio stations started playing a month or 2 months of continuous Christmas music, I never got my fill. It was too haphazard. I listened to CD’s, or cassettes or (heaven forbid) 8 tracks or albums. But then I was out of touch with the world.

~Christmas music makes the world a nicer place.

~I so much more enjoy Christmas in November the last couple of years. It is before the stress of the holiday sinks in and spoils it.

~We are watching Annie right now. Love it! (It’s a hard knock life, for us..)

~Cat hair. I wish there was a way to bundle it and sell it.

For now, just go ahead and listen to one little Christmas song. It won’t kill you.


and this one if for Bethany!

  1. I love Christmas music, too, although I prefer to wait until the day after Thanksgiving to start listening.

  2. *plugs ears* I’M NOT LISTENING!!!! I can’t tolerate it more than a day or two, the Christmas music. But then, I’m not really all-around that much of a music lover in general. I’m defective, I know.

    I shudder to think of all the perms I’ve had. And now the coloring I’m getting. I wonder that there is any liver left in me. Eek.

    Have a great Saturday — hope it’s not rainy — and go ahead — LISTEN TO THAT FRIGGIN’ MUSIC.

  3. I’m with you Sandy! In fact, I just went right over to iTunes and bought the Straight No Chaser album (and ‘Africa’ – I LOVE that song).
