I like to bitch and moan and complain about 7:30 AM finals, but when it comes down to it, I really shouldn't be saying jack. I got up this morning at the break of dawn, was out the door at about 7, and you know what I realized?

Today is a completely gorgeous day. It's practically perfect in every way.

The sun is shining, there's a gentle breeze, it's warm but not hot, the grass is green, the birds are chirping, and there's a smacking flavor of a summer soon to come. Seriously, I wouldn't have it any other way.

So there's the thing about 7:30 finals... I get up, I get my exams taken care of, I take time after for coffee and a cinnamon roll on the steps of the capitol, bathed in sunshine, and I know that I have the whole day ahead of me, and the thing is--it actually feels that way. Just knowing that I've been conscious enough to savor every minute of a day this lovely makes me feel great. Refreshed. Renewed. Hopeful.

Damn, if every day was like this, you'd see me up at the crack of dawn 365 days a year.

So, I went to the salon the other day and shelled out $55 for a haircut and a brow wax. The wax went fine, despite the fact that I'm getting a lot of redness and white bumps around my eyebrows, but I think that's normal, so I won't complain.

What I do want to complain about is the haircut. I tried telling the girl what I wanted. I was planning on going through the catalogs while I waited so I could show her what I wanted too, but the stupid salon didn't have any books on hair... just books on natural health and all that Ayurvedic stuff. Nice, but I wanted to look at pictures of hair.

So I was getting my hair cut, and I told her as best I could what I wanted. Even before she dried it, I made a comment about wanting less length. She said, "Well, next time we can do that."

Next time? I'm in your salon right now asking you to give me the hair I wanted!!!!!

I get her to trim it a bit, give it a little more edge, but she didn't thin my hair like I needed her to, she didn't take up the length enough, and while it looked nice enough when I left the salon, I still wasn't completely satisfied. I was willing to just deal with it though.

However, last night I washed my hair for the first time since I got the cut... and when I woke up, my hair was a giant,round puff-ball, my natural wave coming through in kinks, and as far as I'm concerned it's a disaster.

Sorry, long work-up to a short question:

Am I justified in complaining about this? Should I ask them to redo my hair for free?

I've never had a problem like this before, I don't know what is and isn't appropriate.

So I was thinking about spartans this morning while I was taking a shower... ahem. I had the thought that there are a lot of parallels between 300 and the war in Iraq.

After a threat/insult, a king makes a brash decision and defies the legal bodies that bind him and goes to war. They kill a shit ton of Persians, etc all in the name of preserving freedom.

As to whether Laura Bush slept with any members of senate, I can't say.

Apparently this Friday, there is going to be a massive pillow fight on the Ped Mall at 10 PM.

I think I might dig this.

As we speak, there is a giant lintwad in my bed. It shows up on the weekends.

You know the funny thing?

I'm totally in love with this lintwad.
