No news is good new... Right?

Well, someone told me the other day you can tell I am a new hairstylist because all I think of is hair... I responded with "Oh good, that goes away?" It is true.. I do think of hair a lot, it is mostly annoying, sometimes it keeps the A.D.D. in me entertained. So basically I have just been working. I had to work 10 days in a row and then next Wednesday-Friday I get off! Yahooo. And in the middle of those days (aka Thursday) we (aka Mom, Dad, and me) will be going to see Wicked. I am incredibly excited. Not much has been going on in my life, except shopping this week. I got some killer deals from Old Navy (thanks to Amanda!) We got over $180 clothes for $65 or something like that. Then I went and got some shirts for my friend Kendra who is expecting a boy. I got him 3 shirts from GAP for $8. All way cute shirts. I am a bargin shopper lately! Except for the fact that I still am not saving as much money as I could. When I first moved home I was a lot worse at saving money than I am now, but could still use some advice on saving money... What works for you?

Dear "Big, Bold, and Beautiful Girl",

I heart you! Thank you for calling yourself a "Big, Bold, and Beautiful Girl"! I totally agree. You are! You reminded me today why I decided to go into the beauty industry. I am so glad you decided to come in tonight and trust someone who actually knows how to cut hair. I wish you the best of luck on your new adventures. Also, you made my week by talking about the show "Tool Academy" with me... especially the part where you yelled "Those boys are such DOUCHE BAGS!" And everyone in the salon turned and looked at us... that was definitely priceless. And something I probably would have done! I love when I have people like you come in.

Thanks for reminding me why I do hairz.

Love Always,
Your NEW Stylist,

P.S. Thanks for the tip! You should teach Whatcom County what the word "TIP" means ;)

"Every choice you've made in the past has helped create the wonderful person you are, so be proud of the lessons you've learned. Show that pride by sticking to your guns and living up to the reputation you've created. People always rely on you to do the right thing, and that's an incredibly valuable (and flattering) position to be in. Don't dilute your point of view to appease other, more powerful people. They'll respect you all the more for being true to yourself -- and that's the goal. "

That was my horoscope for today... and possibly my new motto for life.

Too much MEDIA!!!!

I have soo much to say about the media... where to begin... oh I know... Kayne West.... For the few of you who live under a rock (unless reading my blog) I will let you know that our EX fav artist stole Taylor Swift's thunder at the VMA's on Sunday night. Sweet Taylor just won an award for her song "You Belong With Me" (one of my favs!) During her speech Kayne got up and stole the mic from her (Cuz he a "Gold Digga") and said that Beyonce's video was better and she should have won and blah blah blah. Luckily Beyonce has class (probably cuz she is a "single lady"... haha I am sooo witty) and invited Taylor Swift up while it was HER aka Beyonce's time to shine and shared it. Thank-you Beyonce for being classy. And Taylor, I am proud of you for not trash talking Kayne afterwards... I probably would have!
Kayne West did try to redeem himself on the Jay Leno Show tonight, however he never came out and apologized. He just cried cuz he knew his momma would be ashamed and cuz what he did was rude.... Kayne, I know I can forgive you, because we all know I still heart Chris Brown...
Next, let us talk about movies. I think I should be a movie critic or something. I realized last week I love watching movies. I really enjoy it. I don't know if I can count that as a hobby (since I don't like scrap booking or any sort of crafts, hobbies are hard for me to come by...). But if I can count it as a hobby. It will be number 1 on my list. Anywhooo... I love going to see movies so much I will go by myself (which is really nice and I don't mind it at all). Well tonight I went and saw....

I give it a solid B. I didn't hate it by any means. However, I didn't fall in love with it. I shed a few tears, but nothing like The Notebook, which I was kind of hoping for a Notebook-ish movie. And I guess it was. I thought Eric Bana who plays Henry did an amazing job. Rachel Adams, I love you but not your best film. That's ok, you are so beautiful no one will mind.

Last but certainly NOT least... New Moon. The newest trailer came out today if you haven't watched it yet... you need to! DO IT NOW!!!! It is absolutely amazing! I think this movie is going to be like a billion times better than Twilight. However, New Moon is my least favorite book in the Twilight Saga, but might be my favorite movie.. hmmmm... interesting. I can't wait for November 20th... I want to go to the midnight showing... yes I am a nerd.

Stupid Rules!

So I have never been one to be told what to do and just accept it. I always ask Why? And then if for some reason if I don't agree with it, I don't comply. I just don't. That's just who I am.

(Example A)
There is a written/unwritten rule saying you can't paint the walls in BYU approved housing. I thought that was dumb. Kristin Booth and I both thought a Red accent wall would look so good in our apartment. However this went against the STUPID RULE....
Yes, as you can see... We didn't follow that rule. However, we did get permission to paint the wall before we did it. And we did leave it red after we left....
(Example B)
Last Thursday when we went to the Seahawks game I was going to get some garlic fries (yum!) and asked if anyone else wanted something while I was up. Being the nice person I am.... And my boss asked for a beer. She asked me if that was ok, not wanting to offend me. I said it would be fine. I have no problem. She has her agency. So I took my I.D. (because I am of age to buy alcoholic beverages) and went on my way. I ordered my garlic fries and a bud light, or so I thought. The older gentleman asked to see my I.D. I showed it to him. No biggie. WRONG! He cleared his throat and said the following "Oh geez. Ok, well I am really sorry but I can't actually sell you this beer...." I shot a death glare at him and asked why not?! He then called over his manager and asked her. She explained to me quite possibly the dumbest rule of all... Since my license is vertical not horizontal they can't sell me alcohol. Even though I am almost 23 years old. I got heated really fast, as I tend to do when hearing a STUPID RULE. I collected myself, apologized to the nice old man and thanked him for explaining. He ended up giving me a free garlic fry for any inconvenience. What a sweet old man. However, the manager then told me no one would sell me alcohol in the whole stadium. I turned around walked a way and said "ya... we'll see..."
That my friends, was a Mike's Hard Lemonade, which I BOUGHT with showing my VERTICAL I.D. Please note that I only purchased this drink, but did not consume. :)

(Example C)
Today I got ready for work, it was a little stormy out still this morning so I thought I could pull out my favor shoes of all time. My Ugg Boots (ok they are like bearpaw or some brand like that...) anyways. They are comfy, warm and slip ons. Who could ask for better shoes? So I wear a black jumper black leggings and my black ugg boots. I am at work and about half way through the day my boss says to me "Oh by the way... you're not allowed to wear those boots..." I just stood there for a second... I was so confused. I looked her straight in the eyes and said "Why not?" She laughed and told me I sound like her kids. I was completely serious though. So I went and got her the "list" of approved clothes to wear at work. Boots are on the approved list for shoes. She didn't have any answers for me. All she said was we got docked points when we got our corporate evaluation because one of the girls was wearing ugg boots.

As you can see this isn't a picture of me wearing my ugg boots at work... yet. But I think it is a stupid rule and needs to be fixed... I will find a way to fix this rule!

If You Must

Bring your bratty 13 year old girl to get a hair cut please make sure to give her, her medication before you come. When she shows me a picture of the haircut she wants and we both explain to her that she is going to have to straighten her hair each morning and it is going to take work and then when I give her that exact cut and she cries and says I made her look like a nerd... please excuse my anger that builds inside of me. For I just gave your puberty filled daughter a haircut that made her look like a young lady and not a dround rat as she did when she walked through the doors. So you are welcome for bring this awkward little girl hope as she enters the 8th grade. However, let's work on teaching your child some manners. It isn't polite to sit in a stylist's chair for 45 minutes throwing a fit. Plus it isn't lady-like. Did your mother not teach you that? Hmm... That might explain things. Also, if your daughter doesn't know what type of hairstyle she wants, I would love to pit in my PROFESSIONAL advice at no charge to you. However, remember I am the Professional, and I probably, no wait scratch that, I DO know what I am talking about. Thank-you for making your hormone filled daughter get out of my chair. I'm sorry she hated her cut, I thought it was cute. So did everyobe else. Maybe she has more issues than just her hair... just a thought. Thanks for taking an hour of my time... when you should have only taken 15 minutes. Don't worry I put a nice note on her account. So the next poor unfortunate soul that has to cut her hair can be warned. Good luck raising your little hellian... you are going to need it.

Love Always,

Your X-Hairstylist, Michelle

Seahawks Game

So yesterday a few of us from work went down to spray paint fans hair before the Seahawks game then we went to the game. We were supposed to get box office seats.. but they over scheduled and so we just got the Season Ticket spots... just. They were way good seats. We were right under the box offices though. And then we got the Club Level tickets so that means we can go to the level where the box offices are on and they have different/ nice-er resturants. So that was pretty cool. It was a ton of fun... here are some pics from last night.
This is Me and My Boss, Mara

Danicka and I being buff...
