Another question

So, how's the weather in your parts? It's been raining cats and dogs here. All day. Without pause. I think I'm going to have to paddle my way home, where Alex will most certainly be hiding behind the washing machine.

ANNOUNCEMENT:
I have been rightfully called out by Frema for not writing my follow-up iTunes post. I thought she would've been too busy giving birth to notice, but she noticed. Do not mess with the hormonal postpartum woman. She needs her 3 a.m. entertainment.

So, yeah. Here's my third (fourth? fifth?) apology for the Delay of Indeterminate Length.

You know that scene at the end of Dirty Dancing when Jerry Orbach says to Patrick Swayze, "I know you're not the one who got Penny in trouble. When I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong."

BUT THEN HE NEVER ACTUALLY SAYS HE WAS WRONG.

This drives me crazy. So I have amended Jerry's lines to read, "When I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong, except actually, I don't say I'm wrong, I just hint at it."

I think that's more accurate.

So yes, the ANNOUNCEMENT:

I am wrong.

In a fit of bad humor and self-pity, I asked you all to distract me with some good ways to spend my iTunes gift card. And you came through for me! And I promised to write a follow-up!

And then I didn't.

So I am truly wrong. And unlike Jerry Orbach, I will say so.

Does it help to know that I haven't spent even 99 cents of that gift card yet? If you suffer, I suffer. That's just the kind of woman I am.

iTunes post coming soon! I really mean it this time!

And now for my QUESTION:

I recently ordered one of these:

Don't be afraid. It's a Ceramic 3-Barrel Jumbo Weaver. For my hair. It is supposed to give me the loose waves I've always longed for.

I know you're laughing at me. This was a terrible idea, wasn't it?

That looks like a telescope! You'll have to tell us how it works :)

I've actually only seen DD once. Although they did show it recently at a neighborhood restaurant. I was enjoying it, and then it seemed to turn into a porn movie? Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey kept whipping off their clothes and gyrating.

Maybe I am just a prude.

I'm glad you told us what that thing was because I never would've figured it out on my own. lol

And you already know what the weather here is like. COLD!!! The sign on the way home from work today said it was -4F. At least it's warmer than it was earlier in the week, right? lol

Awful idea. I had one circa 2001 and I have since destroyed any evidence.

Oh. My. Gawd. I can't even tell you what that thing looked like on my feed reader. 'Cause it looked just HUGE - like some Medieval torture device. But then I've had short hair most of my life so those long hair dohickies are foreign to me.

As for iTunes - don't make us crack a whip and force you to buy free music...'cause we WILL if you make.

I had one of those weavers once but it wasn't ceramic. It fried all the hair in the back so I had a big hole where there should have been hair. Beware!

Looks like you'd need about 5 or 6 arms to control that thing. Good luck!

The kids had an "ice day" today. No school due to freezing rain and icy roads. We sat around all day and watched movies.

i will bet good money your hair is perfectly beautiful exactly the way it is (although why do all my friends with gorgeous wavy hair STRAIGHTEN it? WHY? I wail, having endured umpteen bad perms in my misguided teen years before I came to my senses). do NOT attempt anything with that device as it looks intelligent enough to attack Alex or something.

Forget the iTunes post. I want another phone-call-from-the-produce-department post.

It's hot here. I'm blogging naked.

Suse: Why can't we have both? :)

Now I am terrified to use the weaver. Ah, well... it will make an interesting blog post when it arrives. Stay tuned!

Meanwhile, Suse is blogging naked. Awesome.

(do you put a towel on the chair, or just throw caution to the wind?)
