I'm home from Vegas and it was fantastic and wonderful and HOT (seriously, like walking around in a sauna), and I hate that I'm back at work instead of having fun and relaxing. I had so much fun with EB, and didn't manage to lose the shirt off my back (actually ended up $92 ahead), but I'll go into more details about Vegas and post pictures when I don't have more pressing things to talk about. And I have some time. So maybe tomorrow, or maybe never. Hah.

So what's more important? Okay, first... I GOT MY HAIR CUT. And HOLY CRAP IT'S SHORT. I've never had it this short before. Or gotten this much cut from it... she cut off like a foot!



(Please excuse the crappy Photo Booth picture.) So yeah, it's way shorter than I thought it would be, and at first I was horrified but now I actually think I kind of love it. This might change though after I go to style it tomorrow morning and fail miserably. See, she divided my hair into two pony tails to cut it (for Locks of Love) and she said that 10 inches would probably fall somewhere around my collar bone (which was more than fine with me, I was willing to go even shorter, but I figured we could always trim more to even it out) and the first pony tail she cut was about that length. So I don't know what happened with the second one but it wound up WAY shorter, so hence my hair is now a couple inches shorter than I wanted it because she had to even it out. When she first styled it, she tried to make it all straight and stuff, but it looked horrible, so she put some curls in (which have since fallen out, which is why I think I should get a body wave) and that made it much cuter. I'm hoping I can somewhat duplicate it tomorrow morning. I went to Target immediately after and bought hairspray, a curling iron (shut up I didn't own one), a new hair dryer with a diffuser (aren't they supposed to be good for waves?), mousse, and headbands (for the gym as my hair is nowhere close to pony tail length). I called foreverseenstar immediately after and she was like, "Is it still past your shoulders?" and I laughed hysterically, "We are light years away from past my shoulders." But yeah, I think I like it now. I'm not sure if it's actually growing on me, or if that's some sort of self-preservation technique, but time will tell. I'm anxious to see what EB and my coworkers say tomorrow and everyone else this weekend!

Also, other big news: I GOT BOOTLEGS OF STARK RAVING MAD ON DVD!!!! I am SO EXCITED and all of you are probably like, WTF are you talking about?? Stark Raving Mad was a 1999 NBC sitcom staring Tony Shalhoub as an eccentric horror novelist and Neil Patrick Harris as his nervous, hyperphobic editor. I was absolutely in love with this show when it was on. I practically peed my pants laughing every episode, and it was when I completely fell in love with NPH, as I had never watched Doogie Howser. I was completely heartbroken when it got canceled and have been so disappointed that the rest of the world seemed to have forgotten about it. Well, I finally did some digging and found someone had bootlegs of it on ioffer and I snatched them up. I watched the first two tonight and they're as good of quality as anyone could ask for. I'M SO HAPPY. :D :D :D I <3 NPH! (No seriously, they were showing episodes of HIMYM on the plane, and I was dozing in and out of sleep and didn't have my headphones in, but when I woke up and looked up a the TV screen, I'm pretty sure I squeed, "I love you, Neil Patrick Harris!" out loud.) But yeah, did anyone else watch/remember this show??

And ZOMG JASON MRAZ IS TOURING NORTH AMERICA!!! Tickets go on pre-sale on Wednesday. At least they should... I can't find the Boston show online. That one will be perfect since that weekend I have to be in at DSP in Boston anyway for LEAD. I might buy tickets to the 10/10 show in NYC anyway... we'll see. Anyone want to come with??

Also, Jim Breuer is coming to the Funny Bone in a few weeks! \o/ foreverseenstar and I already have tickets. <3

Oh, and things that might actually be important? Got that check from the insurance company. I'm so glad to have all that figured out, but depositing it was kind of bittersweet. Also, I'm done with my last prerequisite for nursing school. I finished my last exam tonight. I got a packet in the mail of all the stuff I need to do in the next few months (ordering uniforms, getting physicals, CPR certification) and so Wednesday I go to catch up on the 180232 vaccines I'm overdue for. Joy!

Okay, I should attempt to get back on east coast time and go to bed. Later, skaterz.

Wow, I've known you since I was like 4 and I don't remember your hair ever being that short. Looks really good though :)
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:34 am (UTC)
Haha, because it never has been! Shortest was to the tops of my shoulders and that was like 14 years ago! And thank you! :)
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:14 am (UTC)
It looks totally cute. :) (and I think I still win for most hair cut off at once... remember when mine was below my waist??)
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:35 am (UTC)
Thanks! :D And yes, you totally win. Yeah... holy crap you had long hair! lol
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:16 am (UTC)
Your hair looks great, the short cut definitely works for you
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:39 am (UTC)
Thanks!! :D
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:16 am (UTC)
Oh but you're totally rocking the short hair! (Not just saying that because I rock short hair too) It's adorable. I kinda like it straight but maybe with an inward curl at the bottom? IDK mine is so short that I don't really have to style it at all.

Also I noticed a dragon*con tag to the left there. You going this year? If so, possibly meet up y/n? Because I'm going, I just need to figure out WHEN. Saturday is looking like a nice good day.
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:39 am (UTC)
Thank you! Yeah, she tried curling the bottoms and I think that will look okay, but she was doing it funny and the layers weren't curling the same... idk. I just hope I can do something with it that doesn't look heinous!

And yes yes, definitely going this year. I'll be there Thursday-Monday so just let me know when/where you want to meet!!
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:24 am (UTC)
OMG YOU LOOK AWESOME! That cut is so cute.

EEEE MRAZ! I totally have to get tickets. He is going to Chicago right? He has to be, who does a North American tour without stopping by Chicago?
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:37 am (UTC)
Thank you!!!

Of course Chicago! November 22 at the Aragon Ballroom. Pre-sale password is "Polaroid" :D
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:38 am (UTC)
WOW. You look totally cute!!

(I need to be in bed, or this comment would have been more detailed.)
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:39 am (UTC)
Heheh, thank you! :)
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:50 am (UTC)
Cute! I'm a fan.
Jul. 29th, 2008 04:57 am (UTC)
:D Thanks!
Jul. 29th, 2008 06:58 am (UTC)
You are so ridiculously gorgeous! I am jealous! How was Vegas?
Jul. 29th, 2008 01:49 pm (UTC)
*blush* Thank you! Vegas was fantastic. It was so awesome to get away for a while. I loved all the shows and just relaxing by the pool and moving at our own pace. Haha, I want to go back already!

Jul. 29th, 2008 01:50 pm (UTC)
I definitely do like it, but after fighting with a curling iron this morning I think I want to go back and tell her to just perm the shit out of it. lol!
Jul. 29th, 2008 11:37 am (UTC)
Very cute! :D

Re: Stark Raving Mad: I remember it and I think I watched maybe one or two episodes? Maybe. Or maybe I just remember the ads on teevee. But I was excited at the time because I was in full-on Rent obsession and I was psyched that NPH had been in Rent.

Oh, Rent. That's a time in my life I wish I could forget. (And by "a time in my life" I mean "from 1998 to 2004.")
Jul. 29th, 2008 01:51 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :D Oh no, what could ever be bad about a Rent obsession?? I totally wish I'd seen NPH in Rent!
Jul. 29th, 2008 01:08 pm (UTC)
I think you're rockin' the short hair. I love it.
Jul. 29th, 2008 01:52 pm (UTC)
Hee, your icon!!! And thanks!! :D
Jul. 29th, 2008 01:09 pm (UTC)
You look ADORABLE! Eeeee!

And oh my dear sweet pink pegasus on a pogo stick, you have bootlegs of Stark Raving Mad?! You know what Stark Raving Mad IS?! I GORRAM LOVED THAT SHOW.

...I must find bootlegs. Or rips. Or SOMETHING.
Jul. 29th, 2008 02:04 pm (UTC)
Thanks!! :D

OMG SOMEONE ELSE WHO KNOWS THAT SHOW!!!!! *hugs* (foreverseenstar knows it too but only because she watches all TV known to man.) Here is the guy I got them from (http://www.ioffer.com/offer_transactions/show/5217601), and I mean they're certainly not DVD quality, but totally the best one can do considering they're bootlegs and ripped from 1990s television.

MRAZ!! omg he's going to be here this weekend but it's $200 to squeeze with like idk 4000? other people to see him play for 45 minutes. Followed by Rick Astley and the PCD, it's ridiculous. Hope you get to go + good seats, am jealous haha
Jul. 29th, 2008 02:27 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :D

I'm so excited! I hope I get good seats!!! It has been my goal in life to see him in concert!
Jul. 29th, 2008 02:22 pm (UTC)
Your new haircut is GORGEOUS! I vastly prefer shorter hair on women (but... of course... that's coming from me, girl with practically a buzz cut for a year)! What's going to happen to your hair? Are you giving it to charity?
Jul. 29th, 2008 02:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you!! :D I'm going to mail it off to Locks of Love today. (I hope they can actually use it!!)
