Brothers and Sisterishes

July 15, 2010

This is me, and the most precious girl in the world, Kristen:

I am somehow lucky enough that she loves me enough to create this here caterpillar and decide that he should be mine….

I don’t have anywhere good enough for him to hang yet, so I just carry him around the house with me. He loves So You Think You Can Dance, and is relieved that this season is finally rid of tap dancing.

Kristen recently suggested that we start a support group for people whose significant others refuse to read Harry Potter.

Sean Quintana is home for a while right now.  He came into my salon for a haircut.  Everyone there has a secret Facebook crush on little Seany, so I thought I should tell Marcus in advance that he was coming, he responded by kind of yelling “Ashley’s brother is coming in!! Everybody put on your bronzer!”

Tonight Sean Quintana and I tried to scare our dad by throwing one of my mannequin heads over the railing, but it didn’t work.

Angels Among Us

July 5, 2010

I think that doggies are angels, in a way. Because, obviously, they aren’t people. But they know what people are feeling, and I think that dogs make people feel so loved, and really help us get through some things in life.  So maybe they are a little, very important, gift from God.

And I was watching Ruby this weekend, and she pooped outside, and there is a fence post with poop bags, but it was out. So I couldn’t clean it up. I’m sorry.

Sean Quintana is also an angel among us. He sent me a package of guava juice from hawaii. Which is amazing but also kind of stressful because now I have to ration it properly to make this juice last as long as possible.

Also, recently I was having a sad, Seattle-missy, kind of day and I shampooed another angel. He was a grown man, and grown men are usually pretty awkward to talk to in the shampoo bowl, but this one figured out that I had recently moved back home, and he told me that moving back home is the hardest place to move, and to give it 12 months. Because that is the magic number.
