New Hair and Local News

I had an early appointment today more than an hour away. So worth the drive in the gloomy, drippy rain. Because I finally took the time to get my hairs cut and colored! Oh friends, I'm a new lady. The color is FABULOUS! And the cut- well it's pretty stinkin' cute if I do say so myself. Sort of a bob, but longer in the front and more stacked in the back. With bangs because I look better in bangs. I mean, I'm no movie star or anything. But compared to the hot mess that was living on my head over the last month or so, it wins the most improved award by a long shot. Don't you just feel so much better when you have a cute hair day? I know, me too!

I didn't take much time to go shopping but managed to pick up a few fabulous goodies at the Lilly store (y'all must be shocked!). I even got a little something for my giveaway. It's not actually LP, but it is so perfect for my theme. I had something else in mind but when I saw this little diddy, it was kismet. And the future winner and I will be twinkies because I bought one for myself. I'm selfish like that.

So on to my local news.... A few scenes from an Angelina Jolie movie are currently filming in my area. Angelina is not even here. But from the way the TV and radio news have been obsessing about this, you would think Angelina and Brad and the tots were passing out cookies they baked themselves on the side of the road. The news just did an areal shot of the roads they used today to show the "traffic." Can I just tell you that there were like seven cars on the road? Not even bunched up together. This is Upstate NY. Unless you are driving from the Cap District to Saratoga-ish from 5:30-6:30PM during the work week, we have no real traffic up here. People up here would literally die if they visited Atlanta. At any time and on any day of the week. That, my friends, is traffic!

But this is sort of interesting gossip I heard this morning on the radio (as they were of course obsessing about this movie and Angelina and Liev something who is also in it- but I don't think any of them are here filming- I think this is just stunt shots and backdrops). So the movie (currently titled "Salt") was originally written to feature Tom Cruise. I think his character was named Evan Salt- or something like that. Anyway, he apparently wanted $20million and the movie execs decided he wasn't worth that or they wouldn't recoup that or whatever. So they are re-writing it for Angelina (is she worth that much though? I don't know, she honestly doesn't do much for me. Then again I am not a movie person, so what do I know. Her kids are cute, that's about all I can say for her.) and her character will be named Eveline Salt (or something like that).

So there you go. A little town gossip to chew on tonight. Ah, local news is just so ..... er ..... well .... it's something. Usually makes me laugh. It's not quite CNN is all I'm saying.

Ooooh! You know I'm a total goob for film stories... hahahha! Did I tell you they're filming a chase scene in front of our house in a couple of weeks for a new Katherine Heigl movie? I will have to post about it. My house is moving to the big screen. First it was Food Network, now Hollywood.

You must email me pics of your new coif. Sounds fab! And yes, new hair = a new woman indeed!

She does nothing for me either. I think Angelina is OVERRATED.

Good news on the hair, it's great that you like it! And really, is there anything better than a little town gossip to add a touch of zest to the day?!

Grins & giggles,

Oh, I hear you about the traffic. Angelina was here (in DC) filming a few weeks back and that's all every one talked about.

Where's the picture of your new haircut?
