I got a letter from the Board of Elections for that one, when I had to do a make-up ballot.

Now I yell, "Stay away from my ballot!" when she comes near me.

She bugs other people, too. Just saying.

Her first mistake was making fun of my dog, all those years ago.

I was a poll worker for the Gore v Bush election. The polls open in NY at 6 and don't close until 9 but I was there for about another hour or so after that to clean up, so I had an extremely long day. There was high turnout for that election and I found it draining directing people to their correct district and having people yell at me because they'd moved but their names weren't on the register. I swore I'd never do it again.

I want to thank you for posting this. I've been putting off a haircut for months now and I desperately need one. This spurred me to call today and get an appointment and I decided to make it for my birthday so I don't have to spend it alone. I'm even getting highlights!!

Oh, I'm sure it will be tiring. And that I'll be spending the day with older people and meeting some previously, possibly blessedly, unknown neighbors. It's okay. I'm a bit sequestered in my regular routine and I like to shake things up now and then.

Of course, a vacation would be better, but that's not really possible right now. Although, I did get invited to scenic Columbus, Ohio for a day this week. (I'm skipping it.)

w00t, w00t!! No more split ends! Your hair is so beautiful too, bet it looks fabulous!

I can't wait, my hair is a freakin nightmare of yuck right now. I haven't had any color on my hair in over 10 years and I've never had highlights, should be interesting.

Thanks, TRBL and spring!

Ninja, it annoys me a little how short my hair looks compared to how long it actually is. It's about BSL when dry and curly, and about down to my belly button when wet. I only had him pick up my layers and get rid of the bad ends, so I didn't lose much length.

I figured you were busy admiring yourself in the mirror and ignoring us.

That's a lot of shrinkage, frankly. Or is it, for your hair type?

Yes, a lot of shrinkage. One day I'll have it as long as I want it to be when it's dry!
He had a hard time combing it through, as I do because it's so long. He reminded me to do vinegar rinse to help with the tangling.

Okay, deep breaths, you can do this, it's just a few days, you will survive, you can do this, you can do this, you can do this.

Saria, my dear, you are absolutely lovely and a sweetheart, and I'm jealous of your curls.

Suddenly all the other assistants are out for the rest of the week (or parts of it). So I am left handling my department, as well as a number of other high level executives, some of them (okay one in particular) are... errr, umm, high maintenance you might say. And since it is unexpected, I'm kind of floundering as to what loose ends are out there that need to be tied up, what can wait etc. Normally it wouldn't be so bad, but with the co-worker situation that I deal with, next week could be ugly (when everyone is back & wondering why the hell I did or didn't do something).
