today i went to the city--by myself--and got my hair cut. now i have a bob! and bangs! i probably haven't had bangs in about twenty years! with a shampoo and massage plus a blow dry, i feel positively pampered! just from a hair cut. i'm sure it'll be wild tomorrow (i don't have the time or patience to blow dry it all the time) but the shorter length i think it will be something of a relief. phew!
