Re: PICTURE POST II!

Yeah, unfortunately, you really have to bleach. My hair is really dark brown, so I have to bleach it for about an hour and it still comes out a pale orange most of the time. Bleaching can be a pain, and it definitely does a lot of damage, but since my hair is pretty short and I only do streaks I don't mind. Plus, the vibrant colors that come with bleach are totally worth it!

Cool hair!

Also Kestra: I know that feel. I've given up dyeing it. I tried it a few weeks back because i'd cut most of my hair of, so if it looked terrible it wouldn't matter. But the color I got was nowhere near as red and funky as advertised on the box. We will just have to face the fact that dark hair is way cooler than any other color, dyeing it is made impossible for that reason. ;P

When I did the red streaks I actually managed it without bleach but yeah, it wasn't as shocking a color. The problem is if I had bleached it, the color would start running out and then I'd just b left with blonde streaks.

A sort of Cliff's Notes recap of my last trip:

Safeco Field (Seattle Mariners)


Chase Field (Arizona Diamondbacks)


Angel Stadium


Dodger Stadium


O.co Coliseum (Oakland Athletics)


AT&T Park (San Francisco Giants)


Petco Park (San Diego Padres)


PNC Park (Pittsburgh Pirates)
Awesome pics MLB, I can't wait for my boys to get older and do the whole Stadium Tour. I like how early you get to the park, I love to watch ground crews work.

In my experience, it depends on the dye you use. Manic Panic is semipermanent, so it does start to fade after a couple washings, but it generally stays colored and doesn't go back to blonde unless you're using something really pale like bubblegum pink. I've used 5 of their dyes...bubblegum pink hardly colored my hair at all. Shocking blue looks great but fades very quickly. Atomic turquoise (the blue in the photo) hardly fades at all, and same with the Hot Hot Pink in the photo.

Love the new hair, tsq.
I can confirm that TSQ's hair looks even better in person. And that she's as lovely and smart and sweet in real life as she is here.

I can also confirm that The Seeker and his wife are also lovely, and that their little girl is so cute and adorable they're lucky I didn't sneak off with her.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I've never had the opportunity to meet her but if her BBS and Facebook posts are any remote indicators then she must be very entertaining and educational to hang out with! The cute hair would just be a bonus.

I'd like to get tsq and Randi together in the same room and just watch and listen. I imagine two lively New York girls interacting could be quite illuminating.

Awwww, thanks!

It was fabulous meeting you, though I'm afraid we may have bored your poor girl to death!
