Japanese Day

Today I got my haircut out in Arlington Heights. I wanted bangs, largely because they had grown out to a half-assed length, getting all up in my face, and thus causing me to often lose my balance on crutches. Also, I've always wanted straight-across bangs. I liken them to the bangs of Shokotan, Fukakyon, "Hana Yori Dango"'s Tsukushi, and Teen Vogue's editor-in-chief Amy Astley (sometimes featured on "The Hills"). I think this kind of hair might be what Joe often cringes at (I recall a reaction to temporary BoA bangs), but I see him only once in a while to play video games, when we all eat and stare at the screen a lot anyway.

The overall length is about the same as before. I'm going to try to grow my hair out, so I can have long hair for a kimono-wedding next summer. As of now, it's the only demand my mom has made of me and my wedding.

We went to Mitsuwa afterwards, and I picked up some comics, Oronamin C (Red Bull but much better, i.e. carbonated), Milky, body wash, and a compact eyelash curler. I did not purchase that St. Patrick's style sushi, pictured above, but I liked how it looked. I actually hate most sushi and wasabi altogether. I am coming down from a Japanese high after having had some family friends rather suddenly visit. I'm supposed to go in June--I hope "free wireless" exists in Japan.

i think my dislike is for super straight bangs
i have a feeling that this has happened before on some past iteration of your blog
you writing about bangs and flashing the joe light
if i had to rank them in hair/attractiveness though itd go in order of your links from best to worst
i actually kinda like the first girls hair since on her profile picture from the side it doesnt look straight, more like theyre outlining her left eye and shes got that long part on the side of it
number 4 looks like a conehead though, no doubt about it

actually looking closely id put 2 and 3 in a tie for hair
the hair in front of the left ear of #2-is it that short? or is it a tuft (cant think of a proper description) that immediately curls around the back of the ear
also #3s dimple looks like a butt
or there's dust on my monitor

damnit just noticed pictures on sidebar

those bangs are ok
it reminds me of an electrocardiogram

also are those pictures taken from your new camera? if so they shouldnt be at microscopic resolution

Looks like we want the same haircut. Your examples seem better than my link to Carla Bruni, though.

bangs are SO effing hard to get right. i've been chopping my own lately, but that's because i'm 1) lazy 2) poor.
