The hair of a giant

October 14, 2010
I work with a tiny Laotian woman. Her name is Tida, and today she told us about how when she goes to the gym with her husband she tries really hard not to over do it because she burns calories too easily.  Recently she brought a bag of clothes to work that she couldn’t wear because she was swimming in them, and she thought some of us may be able to use them.  I have been wearing a few dresses from that bag as shirts lately, and I’m serious.  I’m not sure if Tida is quite 5′ tall yet.
On Saturday a first time client came into the salon, and Tida was scheduled to do her hair.  This woman was at least 7′ tall.  It was really special to see Tida on her tiptoes, and jumping around, trying to reach this woman’s head. Then, God put a stick in my eye for being amused by this, and made me blow dry the hair…and I couldn’t reach it either.  So that was something.
Another thing, today, my friend Amy had to call a client and say “Hi this message is for Amy, this is Amy calling from Bang Salon to confirm your bang trim for tomorrow.”

Katherine Heigl, and the Haunted House

October 12, 2010

Marcus works at a haunted house now, every single night after work. Which I hate, because Marcus is pretty much the only friend I have to hang out with other than Paul Quintana.

Today he was telling us about how there is a midget(I have no idea what the appropriate word for this is) that works at the haunted house, and she eats fire, balloons, and bugs. But she doesn’t eat spiders, because she likes spiders. Then he said “Ashley if she ate a spider it would be like you eating a golden retriever…or you eating Katherine Heigl.”
