Shining, Gleaming, Streaming, Flaxen, Waxen

I remember seeing some show a long time ago where a woman was so happy that she was able to get her hair done in such a way as to feel so good about her life. I LOL'd at her since I knew it was just dead protein that she thought was soooo important. Who the heck cared about hair?!?

Well, yesterday I had a lovely flaming gay experience at a hair salon. Kitty wanted to go in for highlights and a cut and she made an appointment for me as well. I have this "thing" for red hair. I wanted a totally flaming hairstyle with red hair. And I got my wish!

No, there will be no pics. Only leo_tiger (who stopped by the salon to say "goodbye" as he headed back to SoCal) and yippee (who I had to send a picture to for my FC staff badge) know what I look like. I wasn't going to say a thing until FC to surprise folks, but I thought I would make a teaser post so that folks should expect the unexpected. So what did I do? Well, let's just say that the mustache and goatee didn't match the hair, so off they went. Also, let's just say that when I woke up this morning and I looked at myself in the mirror with a raging case of "bed-head," my first thought was "He's Mr Heat Miser! He's Mr Sun!

So yeah. I understand how that woman felt when she got her hair just the way she wanted. I have an interview for the management job tomorrow and I am ready! Even though it will be a phone interview (with my boss less than 50' away in her office *facepaws*) I will be representing ME! This is me! Love me or leave me! Right now, I don't really care if I get the job or not. Yes, it would mean a shitload of more money for essentially doing the same job I do now, but if I need to somehow change the way I am just for the sake of a few more bucks, fuck it! I am very comfortable right now. I don't need any more than what I have. I feel empowered that I can be who I am and the rest can just suck on it! I am me, baby! Love me, or leave me! And if you leave me, I don't friggin' care because I can easily survive!

At first I was afraid. I was petrified!
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side.
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong. I learned how to carry on!
