Here's how the new 'do looks tonight. Most likely it will look 14 different ways in the next 14 days. It takes about two full weeks before my hair relaxes into a new cut. Lots of layers and check out these long bangs! When was the last time I had bangs? We'll see how I feel about them in two weeks. Just when my hair starts getting used to the cut, I start to freak out about it.
At least now I won't have to wear braids for tomorrow's gig. Still not sure which songs to play. There's a good chance the post-office-percussionist will be playing with me. We've never practiced together. But he's excited to jam on the two songs. He's agreed to play percussion on my new album too. So all around, this is exciting.
I got a couple of referrals for dogwalking and pet sitting today. Say prayers, light candles, chant, sing, whatever will help keep that energy open. I'd much rather take new dog clients than have to get a part-time job.
But I do have an interview on Thursday from one of the ads I replied to last night. The woman actually called me, excited to meet with me. [no resume request] She's an Animal Lawyer looking for a part-time nanny for her 20 month old daughter, four afternoons a week - in her office. She said I could bring Hunny [depending on circumstances]. I'll meet with her but I have to be up front with her about my intentions. When my dog business picks up, I don't plan on keeping a part-time job. But that could be soon to never.
I watched American Idol tonight. Yeah, I'm hooked. I don't mind. They're down to the final ten. And in my opinion, it doesn't matter who wins. They're all superstars. They've received more exposure than many pop stars in the last month. And frankly, I would hope to come in second. The winner will get more exposure but s/he will be at the mercy of Simon [Coward] Cowell, and his production company. And I'm pretty sure Kelly Clarkson is still waiting for the big financial payoff. My fave: Diana DeGarmo. My pick for first place: Fantasia Barrino
