Anyway, last friday I decided that it would be a nice birthday present to myself to be able to wake up and not have to do my hair (which takes me forever!). Well, today is my birthday, so I spent about 10 hours this weekend rubber banding, backcombing, and dreading up my hair. I have to say, I've had a very nice birthday so far...

look what someone did to me...
http://www.mamfa.fotopic.net/c896954.html - fotopic doesnt seem to like direct linking :-/ although by the time i find out where the cats hid the camera and have some decent non-phone shots, i'll have worked something out.
it took about 4 1/2 hours, there are 47, and i should have been writing my thesis, but it was booked weeks ago. lukewarm (but still polite) reactions last night meant that ive spent the day going from one extreme of loving it and not caring what anyone else thinks, to the other of being petrified about the reception i'll get at work on wednesday...
you lot are my dread-rock though - knowledge, confidence, faith and pretty pictures :)
So...I have decided. The Sunday of the last week of June...the new Dread era will begin. I will start up my dreads. I decide then because it's the beginning of summer, and my hair grows slow as hell, so I figure by putting them in now, they will grow and develop to look okay for school.
And no I dont know what she was on. Have you ever heard of a thing like that?
I wnat to start my dreads already but I just dont know how. I know some info but not all.
But I feel proud of myself, because I've kept them longer than I did last time. (I think I had them for a week and a half.) So, pictures of my freshly washed locks! Mmmm, coconut shampoo. ( Collapse )
with chicago, we orchestrated a number of people together, enough so that the revenues paid for both my plane ticket & my time.
depending on the number of people interested, i would either ask for a slight increase on my usual rates, or have each person pay an equal flat fee to cover my plane ticket & then charge slightly less than my usual rates.
some examples of my previous work can be seen by searching past posts for photos of:
dreadlock maintenance: kawaiinose, joyful__girl
starting dreadlocks: robinhoodvandal, kattlady
pics of my own (never let someone touch your dreads if you don't like theirs): http://compunction.dyndns.org/art.html
my rates are incredibly reasonable considering most shops/salons charge between $100-300/hr for services. those who are interested in making this trip happen, please respond to this post. thanks.
they were finished on the 15th :D
Being off-topic can be fun and what better way is there to learn about someone than to ask them a stupid question! Did I mention I'm bored and drunk with power? Yeah. I rule.
Here are the rules. I'll ask 3 stupid questions. If you want to answer then, feel free. If not, ignore me.
1. What would you eat for your last meal if money were no object?
2. Describe the best day of you life (the one you had or the one you wish you had).
3. What was your favorite childhood toy?
