Busy Lil' Bee!Well, I've had a terribly productive day... I did a lot of office banking (ordered new checks and such as well as making deposits and paying bills), got my hair cut (shockingly short), picked up Angelique, went shoe shopping (but didn't buy any for myself), had lunch, got my nails done (not so short), took a nice walk around Lakeshore, burned my Carol Burnett iTunes collection onto CD for Angelique, made dinner (farfalle marinara), watched a movie (8 Women), and took Angelique home. I just got back from the last bit, and am importing some favorite tracks into my iTunes Playlist to fill out my Happy Songs CD that I am going to test-drive tomorrow.
And tomorrow, Caroline and I are driving up to Bass Lake for an overnight getaway. And to prevent any confusion from runaway surmises like happened last year when I said that Caroline and I were going to Bass Lake, we are not going to be camping... we're staying in a lovely suite at the Pines Resort with a hot-tub in the room and all the rest of the necessary amenities. I do not camp, and Caroline hasn't ever camped. So just put that terrible thought right out of your head.
We plan to leave before noon so that we can make a few meandering touristy stops on the way and still get there in time to change for dinner and eat at a decent hour (Ducey's on the Lake is an exquisite experience)... so I had better get to bed soon if I intend to get a good night's sleep. And then I won't get back until Sunday evening, so no updates over the weekend.
In the meantime, I have a question for you, a readership survey if you will. Sometime soon I have to decide if I'm going to dye my hair. When I got it cut today, the lady turned me around and gave me a hand-mirror... and I almost fell out of the chair with shock. Since my hair was rather long before, I hadn't noticed that there are whole huge patches of gray on the back of my head. I don't mind the gray — well, of course, I mind the gray —but it's the patchiness of it that really bothers me. It's so uneven-looking. So I bought some Clairol Beautiful Collection Gentle Semipermanent Color (B11W Honey Brown) to cover the gray. But I'm not sure I really want to dye my hair. I haven't colored in years, and I don't want it to look as if I colored it... I guess I'm not sure I want to be the kind of guy who dyes his gray hair. What do you think?
