Promotional



Yup, that's me, age seventeen, on my way to Senior Prom wearing the dress I had Rowan posing in a few posts down.

Look at my freakin' hair! I'd been blonde(ish) my whole life, and then one night I decided I wanted to dye it brown. Just like that. It ended up turning out almost black. It was so strange to look into a mirror and barely even recognize myself at first! By this time it had started to fade out a bit, and over the next several years I would go from brown back to blonde and then red, making pit stops at nearly every shade in between.

Oh man guys, my hair and I, we've been through a lot...it took a helluva long time and an awful lot of dollars and tears to settle on my current incarnation. I think I'll be sticking with it for a good long while.

Yes the hair...I too have had to battle the demons that live in my hair. My wife makes fun of me for it.

Brittany said...

I think the dark hair is cute!

I've tried that kind of dark colour on my hair as well and as soon as I could I came back to my natural blond colour, cause the dark colour made me look older;)))

Key said...

i don't know why, but here you resemble anna paquin (sp?). but maybe its just cause i watched the squid and the whale?

Suzy said...

yeah i have to say you look gorgeous as a brunette and i am jealous, so very jealous, of anyone who can pull off the dark and the light and have it look like she doesn't dye her hair at all. YOU BITCH.

Oh god and I now need to spend my afternoon with Noah Baumbach's genius, thanks for the reference, ebad.

Thanks dudes! This is a pretty flattering picture, but you shoulda seen me by graduation time--the ends of my hair were still almost black, and the top half was a weird faded brown color. SO BAD! Ah, whatcha gonna do...

I think it makes sense that I look a little like Ms. Paquin, because my sister (a natural brunette) looks a lot like her, and I sort of look like my sister...

And now I wanna watch "The Squid and the Whale" again too! That or "The Piano" So dark! So tragic! But I think instead I'll probably be stuck with something of the "Watch it Now" variety...

yes, being blonde/blonde(ish) is most definitely the best. i don't know if i'll ever go back.
