big fringe

here is my new fringe! well what it was based on anyhow... the 'winkleman' was finally chopped into place just over a week ago and i can confirm that i quite like my new look (even tho i wasn't sure i looked like 'me' for a few days!) haha
let me tell you it's more high maintenance than i'm used to but not as much hassle as i'd worried about... my hairdresser (who i'll be seeing for a trim before too long!) says i have to dry it as soon as i get out of the shower which seems melodramatic but then i know the kinks in my hair and if they get a hold of my new front bit there'll be no hope! haha
it was a little sadness i washed my hair for the first time after it was professionally styled as we all know it doesn't look that good again til you go next time! it was ironed and light and shiny and now its kinky, frizzy me again (except the dried-first-fringe of course!) but that's okay man! it's like the real me! haha
it's THE most talked about hair cut i've had in along time - it changes how i look so much people literally didn't recognise me which is kind of thrilling, but of course we'll know whether it really suits me when my mum sees it this weekend! haha they don't hold back do mothers when it comes to having opinions on stuff - maybe she won't even recognise me either! haha

guilty as charged

to my shame (thanks RB) i have fallen foul of micro blogging!

twitter is so fun and instant and effort-free and i spend my free time surfing there casually... next thing i know i'm looking at no blogs since Feb 6th? oh my days - how rude!

so i got a new watch today :)

it's nice and shiny and took me months to pick and the best part is, even tho i had a budget of £100 for a nice flashy bit of wrist jewellery - it only cost £30! brilliant news! so as a treat i can get a nice retro Casio too for £20 with money left for cocktails! i'm easy pleased huh?!

i know twitter won't last - it can't - it's too time consuming! but it's fun while it it the latest thing so if you are on there say hi - i'm producerjodie ;)

oh what a week it's been with all this snow, i made a snowlady in the back garden yesterday, complete with boobicles! hehe

and wandering around on youtube found this gem of a home video - you can't make this up!

only in England do we get excited about the weather - this is due to it's extreme unpredictability and i'm sure this is a massive influence on the general personality of this nation...

i'm looking fwd to getting semi-naked in the snow over the weekend - looks like great fun! don't know what the neighbours will say tho...

groundhog day

festive greetings all friends of the Groundhog! one day it sure would be fun to wake up in Punxsutawney (do you know how hard that is to spell?!) and take a stroll down Gobbler's Knob - even though its not in the town centre like in the film, see the hog and have some punch... ah well we can dream!

seeing the Groundhog is up there with wanting to be at the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Alaska come May - it couldn't BE any further away from England so i guess it's just not meant to be and maybe if it's back in Europe in 2011 i can make the trip... what a day that is - i heartily recommend it to anyone who lives nearer, and if you can grow facial hair - do so! haha, i'm actually quite envious of the art of facial hair, not that i would like to be a bearded lady making a living in the circus! but for guys i think its fun to have a lovely beard... apparently they've been shown in research to be scary things - but what could be more natural than a man's beard? certainly some need more trimming than others - but ZZTop looked great under their big beards... sounds like some guy who couldn't go past bum fluff started making bad pr for beards way back hehe

in other news i read today that in some parts of asia grey hair is said to be a sign of wisdom, with each grey hair representing a problem overcome - how awesome would that be if it were true - i've had a lot of problems... hehe

and why does this country just seize up in the face of a bit of extreme weather - i suppose we just not an extreme nation and hence the hysteria begins... having said that i have no idea how i'm going to get to work tomorrow with my car under 10 inches of snow... goodness me, i am NOT walking to work in the snow at 5 in the morning! haha
