Okay, I'll start:

1) hearing my cats purrrr
2) hearing my favourite song at the exact right moment
3) the first cup of coffee
4) getting a nice email from a good friend
5) hearing about a good friends good fortune

Okay, so, continue on from #5

pink hair, Mr.Cat?!!! where on earth did you get the idea?!

actually it's either going to be blond with blue streaks, or brown/blond with blue
streaks through it... i cant decide.

right now it's blond though


what a sweet thing to say you are always so kind

Blue when I was a bit younger I used to dye my hair every once in a while and it was great fun. Now I took to dying it a colour called aubergine or wild cherry (depending on the brand of dye).
Sweetie I can't wait to see pics of you with the new hair. I'm sure you'll be gorgeous. I was also thinking of adding a few reddish streaks to mine but it's too curly and I'm not sure if it will look good.

i, too, used to dye my hair all the time, every colour under the sun except pink, orange and black.

i always loved blue though

i say, go for it, streaks are streaks, they are only meant to highlight your hair,
and add 'flair' right? so, go for it! i'm sure you are stunning!

curly hair or not, i dont think it will matter, it definitley wouldnt look bad,
i'm sure of that. my mother streaks her hair and her hair is an unruly mess of curls!

when do we get to see a picture of you anyway?!

when my hair is done i'll see about getting some pictures taken, oh how i wish i had
a digital camera *sigh*
