really. really. really. long entry. [30 Sep 2008|08:54am]

okay, so these are not the best pictures of my dreads, but i did something awesome (ok, in nc "awesome" qualifies for a lot of things... but still..) and i felt like sharing.

i live in boone, nc, near the mountains and there's this scenic highway called the blue ridge parkway which is basically our back yards, and we go camping and hiking there when we have time to kill. part of this scenic highway has a nifty viaduct.

well, a friend tells us you can get inside the bridge if you squeeze through this crack. it's a painful experience to get in, and then it's just long, smelly, dark hallway with no light but we were entertained regardless (ie, scared out of our wits).

well so anyway here are some pics!Collapse )

From the Nuptials... [30 Sep 2008|12:12pm]
So, even though we were married back in August, we've still not gotten the "official" photos from our (highly paid) photographer.

Don't get me started.

However, one of our friends took some pics, which I will gladly share with you now.

Here I am, still single, right before the ceremony. Eat your hearts out, ladies.

Allllllllmmmmmoooosttttt there... [30 Sep 2008|12:56pm]
[ mood | bored ]

It's been around a year, I guess, since I shaved my dreads off...

I did a test dread at the back of my head, and it stayed fairly well with only a small amount of backcombing.

I think my hair is about ready for it's next set.

shhhh...I am in hidinkCollapse )

Update! [30 Sep 2008|04:49pm]
[ mood | cold ]

Hey guys! I haven't posted in a while due to moving back to Wales, not having the 'net.. blah-de-blah.

Anyway, it's been 7 months & my dreads are really starting to knot up a treat. I don't mess with them - I just let them do as they wish. The only thing I do is occasionally palm roll them when wet, but that's it :)

Job Rant [30 Sep 2008|05:23pm]
I've been unemployed for 2 months now.
I've applied at and interviewed at 5 places this past month.
Over the weekend this guy called about 4 times from a beauty school wanting to meet with me.
When I called him back he raved about my resume and was extremely excited to meet me
because of my qualifications.
So I took a bus over to the school to meet with him today.
While I was sitting in the front various other employees came up complimenting
me on my hair.
One girl even took a look at me and said:
"I love your look, this works, you're the one".
When the guy finally called me in he sat me down and commented that
I looked familiar to him.
After that he said:
"I'm going to be blunt with you since I don't want to waste your time, but this isn't going to work. I need someone more conservative. This is a beauty school you know, you can help yourself out"
and walked out of the room.

Normally I would understand ...
I have black, blue and green dreads,
piercings on my both sides of my nose,
1/2" gages in my ears,
and snake bites.
I didn't quite understand given that the receptionist (the position I was applying for)
was covered in tattoos, had her eyebrow and nose pierced,
while another woman was also covered in tats, and had black and red hair.
The only thing I could figure was that he didn't approve of my dreads.
So I walked out and proceeded on my hour bus ride back home,
using up the last bit of my cash, all for nothing.
I fought back tears the entire way.

I mean ... wtf.
Someone just told me they weren't going to hire me because of the way I look,
I guess I'm just not "beautiful" enough.

Scary dreams and Siamese twins! [30 Sep 2008|05:23pm]
Okay first of all, I had a dream last night, and it was icky. My biggest fear is getting either bugs in my dreads or mold. So in my dream I was scratching my head, and I looked at my hand, and what I thought was dandruff, starting crawling around in my hand. AHHHH! It was so gross and it freaked me out. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that my apartment has bugs EVERYWHERE, and it's disgusting. (And I'm scared they are going to somehow burrow in my hair. Eww.)

Anywho. I have a Siamese twin issue. (I have two dreads that have grown together at the root). And I'm not sure what to do. I tried to pull them apart and they will just not GIVE. So what do I do? Let them be, or figure out some way to get them apart?

Help?Collapse )

GREEN MEAN FIGHT MACHINE [30 Sep 2008|06:38pm]

I was really nervous while i'd washed my hair with some pure coconut oil shampoo thing
It smells so great! I felt a lot better after washing. The result:

[ mood | cheerful ]

This is molly, our baby sister. My dad picked her up in the D about a year ago for fifty bucks. She was sold to him as an "American Bulldog" Some say pit bull, others boxer. I'm going with rottweiller pit bull mix.

But what I really want to know is what you guys think...
