Long weekend facts

It's Friday. It's a long weekend. Thank god. The first full week of work after a vacation is always killer, and this week is no exception.

In any case, I am really looking forward to the weekend, and having friends over, and relaxing. But at the moment I feel a bit tired, and bizarrely grubby, almost dusty, and no, I don't know why.

So, though I don't normally do these posts, let's indulge in a Friday five, just some random tidbits, shall we?
  1. I don't like weakly flavored water. I won't drink water out of a glass that had another beverage in it, and I don't like to squeeze lemon into my water. Yuck. I like full-flavored stuff like juice or lemonade, or plain water, but nothing in between.
  2. I want to cut off my hair. It's gotten long, and when it's long it doesn't curl as nicely and it's harder to take care of and it's a pain to wash.
  3. I don't want to cut off my hair. It's pretty when it's long, and people give me lots of compliments on it, and when it's not behaving I can just pull it back into a ponytail (also convenient for workouts). Is it cheating that two out of my five facts are two sides of the same coin?
  4. I don't do anything to my eyebrows other than to pluck the occasional stray hair. I had them threaded a couple times before the wedding, and could barely tell the difference. I don't know if I should be doing something to them. I'm sure they're far from perfect but they seem fine to me the way they are, so I just leave them alone.
  5. It's been over a year since my surgery. I posted about it here.
Yay! Happy Memorial Day! It's the official start of the summer season. And today is going to be 90 degrees in honor of it. WIN. Or lose? At least it's a dry heat.


  1. 90 - ick. Here too, but NOT a dry heat unfortunately. lol
    I am having similar hair issues. It has been a full SIX MONTHS since my last hair cut. if it gets much hotter I may just shave my head.
    have a great weekend!

  2. Hee. If you needed to do something to your eyebrows, I think you would know it. Lucky you - blessed with manageable eyebrows!

  3. I have the same love/hate thing going on with the length of my hair...but man, do I love being able to pull it back -- especially on hot days. :)

    And I don't do anything besides pluck stray eyebrow hairs, too.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. oof... 92 here yesterday, but as you know well it is NOT a dry heat :-)

    i've never plucked / waxed / anythinged my eyebrows before. like you, i'm sure they're not IDEAL, but they just don't seem problematic enough that i want to rip out hair for them :-)

  5. And should we beat you up that 3 out of your 5 have to do with your hair? Just saying ... hahaha.

    They say an easy way to tell someone's age is to look at their eyebrows. Most older ladies wax the hell out of them, so they're overarched and entirely too thin. I say, keeping your eyebrows as is will be your fountain of youth! =)

  6. I totally agree about weakly flavored water! I drink water all day at work, but I add Crystal Light. Can't stand plain water, and just lemon is gross.

  7. I've never had my brows waxed, and probably never will. I pluck 'em and that works fine for me!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  8. Fully agree about flavored water and hair. Mine is curly, like yours, and it's gotten long enough that it's heavy in the back and more tangled/scraggly looking than pretty. Also I go through so much more shampoo/conditioner!

  9. I don't like flavoured water either. Yick.

    I'm the same with eyebrows. I have never touched them. Ever. But they're sort of fair and to be honest, I'm too lazy to start paying money for a beauty routine that I've gone 25 years without.

    Congratulations on your surgery milestones - you are such an inspiration, Jess.

  10. It was our long weekend LAST weekend, so today I was at work.

    Good thing I like my job, LOL.

  11. same way with number one= drives mr. a crazy.
