experiment: femalery

1)
i'm generally not obsessed with my appearance.

unbelievable, i know. i still remember about 5 years ago the moment i made the decision to ditch the concert tshirts and jeans and tie dye and neon adidas sneakers (okay, so i still have these last ones) and start dressing more like a Girl. i wasn't like Paula Poundstoning it or anything, but I wasn't very femme. and you can only be told you resemble a "street urchin," "bag lady," and "war refugee" by your relatives so many times before it shames you into making a drastic change. plus no one wanted to date me.

2)
i am kind of obsessed with eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. i have been since my first viewing, back in 2004. not only is it somewhat of an intellectual throwdown, it's also emotionally resonant, and i probably cry each time i watch it. weep and weep and feel nostalgic (for no one in particular).

anyway, i was watching it recently and was thinking about kirstin dunst's hair. she pulled off this Swiss Miss coiffure in a really rocking way. i've wanted to try this girly (girl-ish?) updo, but my hair's never quite been long enough since i chopped it all off four years ago. but the other day, it was just long enough to hack it. so i made it up as i went along, with no instructions or help, just about two elastics and 60 pins. so what do you think? will this finally seal my acceptance into Girl Community?


who wears it best:

me?



kd?




or challah?



what i have learned:

nothing. absolutely nothing.

So I have to vote for Challah to be first place, you second, and then KD third...no question at all.

I thought you hated kd. I know I do. Love the hair though, and the pink shirt. Reminds me of something I saw at a department store...

I think you are nostalgic for me and living in old academy.

Eternal Sunshine still rates in my top five and I sob everytime I see it. I also sob in chihuahua movies, so what does that tell you.

Your hair looks good enough to eat. Also, birds have told me that you are in SLC. Why the hell haven't we hung out? And why the hell can I understand birds?
