The Fallout

I bopped into my salon last Saturday and there was my favorite stylist looking at me with a flat expression. He waved me over to the mac next to his station (hey, when did that get put there?) and said, “Let’s take a look at this blog…”

Oh, right.


I tried to explain how really, really a blog entry is a display of affection and/or that no publicity is bad publicity. Something like that, right? He gave me the slanted eye look of doom and then gave me another phenomenal style. Say what you will, and we all did, email or no email, the kid can cut.

And speaking of letting the public weigh in, according to the poll I will not be reading the Twilight books. All of the Internets spoke and I must abide by their choice.

I’m not entirely sure what is up with Blogger: although I’ve been getting your comments by email, it’s only adding a couple of new comments a day to that post. Maybe it’s a giant vampiric conspiracy.
Yes, that’s what it has to be, the corridors of Mountain View are running rampant with the nerdy undead.

Ummm, I read that you have a degree in history, so I'm guessing you didn't care much for math. Or maybe it's my math that sucks. How did you come up with that result? I was really looking forward to your comments - I just started Breaking Dawn. I already want to bitch slap Bella and I'm only on page 15. Dang!!!

The results were 40% for "I read them. Eh." Which, now that I think about it, is not really an up or down vote at all.

However, 38% asked me not to read them and only 17% were in favor of reading.

My favorite slice were my fellow Wheel nerds at 5%. Holla!

I still wish I could scrub out my brain from reading the last book. Your haircut is phenomenal. I even went and cut my hair shorter after seeing you on Saturday. How's that for flattery (or being a creepy stalker)?

You are so lucky to have found a good stylist.
I'm so jealous. I've been having my own hair disaster.

I've been having that same comment problem. And as the spouse of a former Google employee, I can neither confirm nor deny that it is all a conspiracy (all those secrecy forms I had to sign . . .).

Oh, Jenny! I'm inspiring hearts and minds! Short hair looks fantastic on we curly-haired girls.

Amy, I will get it out of you one way or another.

i ,too, weathered the wrath of patrick int he salon last week. i'd meant for my comment to be obciously jokey and over-the-top. instead, i really hurt patrick's feelings. I apologized to him, but i feel as if maybe the internet irreparably damaged our relationship. Now i know why he doesn't email.

And I don't get the Twilight thing either, for what it's worth.
