Life Changes

It's blurry but its real. After 23 years of virgin hair I finally took the plunge and dyed it. 
And by plunge I mean I did that thing where you walk into the water with your arms up, standing on your tip-toes because it's cold and you are a big wuss. 
And by all that I mean I only dyed the bottom of my hair. 
But still, if you know me at all you know this is big. 
I don't really do "change." 

It's called a melt, and I love how it turned out! 

I texted this picture to my mother this morning and the conversation went like this: 

Katie: "Check out my new hair!" 

Mom: "I don't get it. What is different?" 

Katie: "Mom. It's completely blonde on the bottom now."

Mom: "...on purpose?" 

As if half my hair accidentally marinated in peroxide for 15-20 minutes with a thorough rinse and condition afterward. 

Oh Mom.

News #2: I was brushing my teeth this morning and part of my tooth fell out. 

Really. That's the whole story. 

There I was, doing my up-and-downs, right before my back-and-forths, when a big chunk of my left molar just popped off. 

Is this normal? 
Do teeth do this? 
Don't I already know the answer to these questions? 

All I do know is I have spent the evening testing various tooth-hole fillers. 

Things to NOT replace a molar with: 

peppermint gum 
tinfoil (ouch)
my winter semester term paper 
a tic-tac (pre-sucked) 
the love of the childhood pet I never had 

I figure if I don't find something soon I'll have to do something drastic, like go to the dentist. 
And pay someone money. 

Heaven forbid I finally have an injury that can't be fixed by superglue. 

I'll keep you posted. 



  1. that is exciting! love it.
    sorry about your tooth.

  2. You forgot the part about where I say that I like it!

  3. Try wood for the tooth. Seemed to work for George Washington.
