Twin Tiny PeterPans.

March 24, 2010

A pair of identical, blonde, 5-year-old boys came in for haircuts today. Normally Bang! doesn’t take baby clients, but there weren’t any adult clients today because of the world-ending snow storm. Actually the roads were dry by 10am but still everyone canceled their appointments.

Anywhoooo, when these babies arrived they were wearing matching black snowbibs over cream-colored-cable-knit sweaters. It was unbelievable, then they got too hot and took off their boots and sweaters and revealed their green long underwear, and became tiny PeterPans.

Yong cut their hair, and PeterPan #1 told Yong that he wanted to be a dress-maker when he grew up!

Then the PeterPan#2 bonked his head on the shampoo bowl because he was way too small for it. So sad.

Later Yong told me she felt bad when he hit his little head, and she said “That looked like hurt!,” and I said “Yeah! And it sounded like hurt!”

This is Murphy and his duck. Murphy is really proud of his duck, and he always wants to show him off. Or push him against your leg. I got to take care of Murphy for a while and I was the luckiest girl in the world.  This dog has the biggest head and feet you will ever see.

Yesterday it was in the 70s and sunny, and I laid outside and got a little tiny sunburn.  And now it is snowing sideways.  And there is 100% chance that it’s going to continue snowing all night. Tomorrow at work everyone will say “Can you believe this weather?! I thought spring was here! Well, that’s Colorado for ya, hahahah!!”  Lord have mercy.

My dad made this fire for me, and I made taco soup (Weight Watchers Taco Soup, sound familiar, my Riekes??)   After the fire was going my dad started watching the Simpsons, and said “Man those are great colors.” About the colors of the Simpsons.

I got to see Barcelona last night.  It was a real treat, even though they continue to refuse to play Rich Girl.  Apparently they don’t have a base track for it, bla, bla, bla.  I don’t see what the big deal is.  Also, what does it say about your life if you have more spots on the guest list than you do friends to fill them?

21 year old turtle.

Paul Cyr, the angel that he is, turned 21 last week. This picture is of Paul in “Wash Bar,” shortly after midnight, on his birthday.

When I was in the ladies room in Wash Bar I felt like I was dressed in a boy costume because all the other ladies in there were reeaaaallllly going for it with their girl outfits. If you know what I mean.  Paul Cyr is way way too cool for Wash Bar if you ask me.  It was a good night, that started with pizza, middled with “blue drink,” ended with Paul stuck on his back like a turtle in the yard.  Luckily Bridget Cyr was there to flip him over, like the good sister that she is.  Paul told me I was allowed to write about this.  Also Paul Cyr likes Harry Potter. Which does not run in his family.

More on Yong:

She walked up to me with a little cup full of hair color last week saying “Look! Sean Penn!!!,” I was like “Sean Penn?!?!”  She was like “YES!!,” I was like “WHAT?!” Then I figured out that she was saying “CHAMPAGNE!!,” which is a shade of blonde. She thought the whole thing was hilarious, and said “Ha! Sean Penn!! The Korean version!!!” Lord have mercy.

More on another Paul, Paul Quintana:

Tonight I got in trouble because I didn’t wash the mushrooms for the salad, woopsie. I said, Dad, I never wash anything, and do you ever see me getting sick?  He said, what does that have to do with me eating dirty mushrooms?  Then we watched Precious, and he said he wants to adopt her.

I also told him about the new saddle shoes I bought, and he told me that a saddle shoe is a solid shoe, and he has always worn saddle shoes. Which is true.

Lastly, on the Oscars, the announcer called Barbara Streisand, “BARBER Streisand!”  Ha!!

Carrot Sauce

March 1, 2010

I had to go into the salon today for a class about Kerastase(a fancy pants hair product line.)

Neal asked why I had to go into work early, I said “A Kerastase class,” he said “Carrot Sauce?!”

He’s the best.
