Friday Flip Off's 8/5/11

ok y'all.. it's Friday and it's time for some Flip Off's.. and I've got a few this week.. and for the first time Ever you'll see what I look like.. sorta.

I color my hair. I'm not gonna lie about it.  I was born blonde, I was blonde into my teens when I decided I didn't want to be blonde anymore... and I dyed my hair jet black.... like Elvira (or Wednesday Aadams depending on the day, lol).  It was great.. until this little blonde baby came along.. and then I looked like the babysitter or something, so I changed it up and went red.  I've been various shades of red over the past 15 years.. most great, some horrible.  

That being said My first flip goes to Clairol. I went ahead last Sunday to redo my color.. yea, I'm still under 35 but I get a few whites and I don't like 'em not to mention the blonde-ish roots that grow in.  Armed with 2 boxes of Nice 'n Easy foam (my hair is thick and long) in Medium Reddish brown (a color that I've used before) I went about the ritual and did my hair.. and it was all fine... until it was time to dry it...and my hair was the same color dry as it was wet. Dark.  Really, really dark.  It's like a really deep mahogany... and not at all what I wanted.
This is what I'm used to
This is what I've got now
Yeah, Not happy at all.. so I called Clairol on Monday morning and asked for some help... so after a game of 20 questions with one of their "Color Experts"  I get "Well Miss, I'm sorry but you're going to have to go to a salon to get the color corrected"  So my response was "well Miss, if I could afford to go to a salon I wouldn't be buying the $10 stuff from CVS now would I?"  Thanks a lot for Nothing.  so... Flip off Clairol for Not being able to help me with this dilemma.  Now I'm adding baking soda to my shampoo to help strip the color and it's gradually becoming redder and less black.. unfortunately I'm probably going to have to eventually make a call to the salon I go to get my hair cut if I can't fix it good enough. *sigh*

I am OFFICIALLY all moved into the new place and yesterday afternoon the Ex-Landlord called my cell saying I owe him $150 because the deposit was short.  HA HA HA!! Seriously this guy must be on some serious Colombian drugs if he thinks I owe him anything.. besides it was $75 short if anything, but regardless I haven't been living there since the 16th of July and really he owes me half my deposit back.  I wasn't going to call him back and when he kept calling I got technology on my side, so now when he calls me he gets the standard "this number has been disconnected" message. Fucktard.  Flip the hell off and leave me the hell alone.

The bestie is here for another 2 weeks which totally sucks.. time flies =( She won't be back until next summer which totally sucks, but I'm very thankful for Skype when she's a million miles away in Mozambique.  Flip off time for going bye too fast when I just need a little more time.  I swear when I win the lottery I'm bringing this girl home for good.
