    Actually, I like your hair the way it is now. :goodvibes I remember it from some of your more recent photos on the boards, and I think it's a good length for you. :thumbsup2 And for the marathon, I totally hear you on having a ponytail, just so much easier.

    Okay, I totally hadn't intended on posting until later tonight, after the new hair and everything. I'm so looking forward to my appointment. :banana:

    But I needed to tell you all something.

    Jackie.

    You have created a monster.


    TK's New/Old Obsession


    Okay, I was probably already a monster to begin with, but now I'm even more obsessed.

    I CANNOT stop watching the Youtube video of Captain Jack! It makes me giddy!

    Just thought you all would like to know. pirate:

    That is a beautiful beautiful man. I've known it since I had a poster from 21 Jumpstreet hanging on my wall. :love:

    Am I surprised? No. :lmao:

    I love that video, it almost seems like he's a bit embarrassed by the wild clapping...or is it just me? It's nice to see someone so humble.

    I am not sure what this says....

    But yesterday (or was it Saturday) when I heard about this....

    YOU were the only person I thought of. :rotfl: :lmao: :rotfl2:

    I almost came over and said something....but figured it was old news by then!

    Did you see the movie he was advertising?

    Looks like Pirates of the Carribbean On Stranger Tides? Summer 2011!

    So...we all have something to look forward to!

    Hope the haircut went well! I always seem to cut mine when there's been changes going on in my life. It seems to me you've done alot of soul seraching lately, and a new cut just helps you feel like a new you! (But not too new, we like the old you just fine!):goodvibes

    :thumbsup2

    :rotfl2:

    It's funny because when I watch it, I see him break character a little bit, I'm glad someone else noticed it too.

    I don't want to tell you how many times I watched it today. :rolleyes1

    Me, too!

    I'll be posting about that soon!!! :goodvibes

    Oh, there's nothing wrong with that kind of obsession. As a matter of fact, it's perfectly healthy.

    You know, that's not the first time I heard that, and it never gets any less flattering. :goodvibes

    Yup. It's the fourth pirates film, supposedly Jack is looking for the fountain of youth.

    I think that's true for me as well. And I've actually wanted this style for a long time, so it feels like an affirmation and a letting go. I'll write more about it later, suffice it to say I've gotten it cut. ;)

    Indeed. ;)

    Nope, not just you. At first I thought...okay, maybe it's me...but no, I definitely see some Johnny peeking through all that Jack Sparrow.

    Nice! Very, nice!

    (Love the hair, too. But with that ummm... "distraction" you didn't leave much other "thought space" to notice- you know that, right?!)

    Indeed.

    I am utterly confused. To notice I know what? :confused:

    Every post shall be accompanied by a picture of my favorite rum-soaked, dread-locked, drop dead gorgeous swaggering pirate. In addition, I shall include one of the many of my favorite Captain Jack quotes, in no particular order, from the three films.

    Why?

    Because it's my pre trip report and I can. :lmao:

    And also, because given that 44 seconds of footage, and the news of the Fantasyland expansion, I am super pumped for this trip and I just want to do something fun every day until we leave. So even if I can't do a full on post, I'll still post the picture and the quote.

    And you may all feel free to drool. Perhaps keep a spare towel by the keyboards so I don't get blamed for having fried your computers. You have been forewarned. ;)

    "Son, I'm Captain Jack Sparrow. Savvy?"






    I'll give you all a moment.

    Now, on to official pre trip report business.

    I love my hair. :lmao: I really couldn't stop looking at it last night, running my fingers through it, the whole deal. The trip to salon was well worth it. She spent over an hour cutting my hair and styling it, and we discussed what she was doing, what products to use to achieve the same look. Honestly, even though expensive, it was totally worth it. You just can't beat that kind of service and that kind of quality, you really can't.

    Anyway, the big kicker will be if I can style it myself at home. I'll let you all know how that goes later today. I do have to say, because it's so much shorter, I think it's going to take me even less time in the morning once I get the hang of it, and that's a huge plus. Anything that looks cute, like a real style, and doesn't take me time in the morning, well heck, sign me up! :goodvibes That and the fact that I've wanted this style for so long and never had the guts until now, well it just feels like an affirmation. In the words of Mia in the Princess Diaries (books, not film), perhaps I am on my way to self-actualization after all.

    Now there has been some talk on the boards on different threads lately of various books. When I took DS to the library, suffice it to say I cleaned out their Disney travel section.

    [​IMG]

    (Yes those are some Meg Cabot books on the bottom.)

    It's not my intent to necessarily read all of these from cover to cover. Just to see if there are any intersting tidbits, things I don't know, little thoughts I could possibly discover. Really, just to see if there's something different that might be fun that I've never thought of.

    I also have Realityland coming from interlibrary loan, so I'm really looking forward to reading that as well. And they didn't have a Birnbaum's guide (why ever not???) so I'll be requesting that as well.

    Today I'm doing a few trip related things. I'm going to be ordering pieces of the costumes for my mom and DS so that DH and I can start making them before we're in crunch time. I'm going to sit down with DS and watch the new planning DVD. I haven't done that yet.

    I've also been on this quest lately to streamline everything, and that includes our apartment. Room by room, I've slowly been dismantling, decluttering, and reassembling. It's cathartic.

    Today, I'll be working on the bathroom (and my bedroom if I have time), which will lend itself to taking a look at our travel toiletries and seeing if we need any items to be replenished before we leave. :thumbsup2

    That's not too bad of a to do list, I think.

    Of course, my excitement factor is increasing rapidly. The closer we get to this trip, the more excited I get. And not because I think I'll do any particular thing or see any particular thing because this is the first trip that I'm really, really learning to let a lot of things go. It's very hard for me, because it's in my nature to try to plan, but it's also in my nature to want not to plan.

    Ask me about how all my paintings in art school were based on the duality of mankind and my own personal struggles with it in addition to observing others' struggles with it. That's a story for another time.

    For now, we will put that philosophical dilemma on the back burner and focus on the task at head.

    V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N.

    That spells relaxation, you know. pirate:

    Glad you love your hair, a good cut is totally worth the extra money, because it grows out nicely too. So actually you saved money, because you don't have to get it redone when it gets shaggy looking. How's that for some fuzzy math? Love the daily picture and quote, but can you keep it up until the movie comes out? Add me to the list of 21 Jump Street fans, he was beautiful then too. You'll love Realityland - that was a great read. You should also look for "Mousejunkies" by Bill Burke, it was pretty funny. I'm way ahead of you on the travel toiletries - mine are already packed. My 5 year old packed her suitcase already. All tshirts, no bottoms and no bathing suits - that would be an interesting vacation! I'm impatiently waiting - 11 more days!:woohoo:
