Poker, Elvis, Hair, and a Possible New LJ
I'm setting a date of July 17th for the next poker tournament.

There are no conflicts scheduling conflicts as far as I can see, except that igorxa and John and Liz will have already moved away. But then again, all three of them would have been mostly too busy getting ready to move to be able to play.

As for where, I have to talk to people in Jackson to see if I have a definite host. I'm accepting volunteers. Otherwise, it will be held at my house in Oxford.

Elvis Health Report
Elvis, my faithful Pontiac Bonneville of sixteen years, has been repaired and he didn't even need a new transmission. Thank you, Southland Body and Paint, for being the best damn mechanics I've ever used (yeah, I know, it's a paint and body shop, who knew? well, now you do.). Just a standard tune up, some new spark plug wires, and an engine coil.

What this means that trips to New Orleans and Jackson are fully on. I need to talk to everraven, damnit, but I keep missing her on icq. I'll just try to call her in the next couple of days.

I want to be able to do my hair like this. Does anyone know how to go about accomplishing it?

I know that if I wear this hair style, I must wear ruby lipstick, but I don't mind. I have ruby slippers to go with it.

A Possible New LJ
I discovered the other day that the owner of the ginger username at livejournal had been deleted and purged and thus opening it up for the taking.

I've seen some people get livejournal username changes. I've seriously thought about snatching up ginger either by creating a new account or applying for a name change. But I've been lost_angel for over three years now and I don't know how I feel about it.

Poll #313428 Identity

Which Username Should I Go With?

Stay with lost_angel.
Request a username change to ginger.
Snag the ginger username by making a new account but use the account for a secondary purpose.
Snag ginger and just squat on it for a while. It's your name anyway, damnit.
Your name is less important than your content when it comes to net identity. This is all very shallow and silly.
It doesn't matter. I'm still gonna call you Minty Fresh.

An apology to exblogger: I deleted the old entry and replaced the poll because my formatting screwed up the options. Please vote again, if you wish. Thank you for voting.

mood: awake when I should be sleepin
music: The Nutcracker

about the hair: it's gonna take PRODUCT to make your do that. (it took PRODUCT to make hers do that, too, i'll wager.) i would recommend not using shampoo on the day you do this--just use water and work your fingers around like you're shampooing and then condition. you want the hair to be pliable and a tiny bit sticky-ish. spray with prep stuff or tonic (i like bumble and bumble products; they're expensive but great and available at chaney's.) blow-dry straight with a big round brush. so after you're straight and dry, mist LIGHTLY with a soft-hold hair-spray (like paul mitchell or finesse or whatever you've got). then you curl with a big iron. arrange the curls fetchingly and DO NOT BRUSH! you may need to use some kind of smoothing cream or groomer (again, i like bumble and bumble) to tame fly-aways (but there won't be as many as if you'd started with clean hair). then, SPRAY THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF THE WHOLE BUSINESS with SERIOUS, hard-hold hairspray (use shaper-plus hairspray by sebastian. it has lacquer in it and is the real deal. note: it will build up on every surface in your bathroom if you use it regularly b/c of the lacquer.)

ok, phew. i hope that helps a little bit and that it works right. good luck. if i think of anything else i'll post it. :> good luck, dahling.

Wow. If anyone could answered that question, you could, Margie.

The next day I'm futzing around the house and not doing anything important (like, tomorrow), I'll try it (that way I don't completely mess up when I'm supposed to be somewhere).

The styling products are gonna be kind of an investment since at present I don't own anything like that except for a little goo stuff I put in my hair when it's wet and let it air dry to help fight frizzies. But now I know what I should be buying, which I've never known before. I already have a hair dryer, a round brush, and a curling iron (although it's probably a little thinner than the one called for with this), but I am so out of practice (I suppose I never was in practice) with using any of them. I can't remember the last time I styled my hair and the last time I blow dryed my hair more than once a year was in childhood.

So, sometime this week, I'll swing by Chaney's and give this do a try. It's gonna take practice, but now I know the how-to. Thank you so much, Margie, for your help!
