Burn, Burn, Burn

It's kind of scary that I didn't Photoshop my hair at all!  I should take some where the sun isn't shining directly on me.  My goal was: fire.  I'm actually quite pleased with how it turned out!

Oh my goodness.  So.  This Wasted Wednesday was quite an interesting one.  A group of us were on the bar's patio, having a perfectly lovely time, as usual.  Then a very pretty girl came over and kneeled down next to me.

“I just have to tell you, you're so beautiful.  Your skin is so perfect and your hair and your tattoos and...  I would just really love to be with you.”


“Oh my god, you're so sweet!”  And, of course, I'm blushing up a storm.  She visited me several more times throughout the evening, flirting shamelessly with me.  At one point I ran my fingers through her hair and stroked her cheek.  Then I kissed her very softly...for just a moment. 

We exchanged numbers and the next day when I contemplated texting her, I completely panicked  I just couldn't believe she could have possibly meant what she said.  It had to have been some cruel joke or she was super drunk or something, right?   Because I am not beautiful.  And I'm totally fine with that fact but it confuses me when people say otherwise.  But I took a deep breath and sent her a text.

She said of course she remembered me and apologized if she'd been intense.  She told me again how beautiful I was and said she'd just had to approach me, that she felt drawn to me.

We talked for a bit, both blushy and giggly.  We have a date next week.  Which I'm fairly certain will involve some kissing.  And much more least on my part. 

DBT is going really, really well.  I'm finding it so much more helpful than past therapy groups.  They were simply talk therapy while DBT is more focused on mindfulness and action.  I've made a note to write a full entry about DBT and the different modules we work on.  But so far, so good.  Unlike previous groups, I actually look forward to attending and leave feeling as if I've learned some things!

  1. I love your hair! It looks so unreal! :)

  2. I hope your date is super, super fun. Also, this might be like the third internet-time I've said this but YOUR HAIR.

  3. Your hair is gorgeous (just like the rest of you!)

  4. Your hair color is fearless! I love it. I could never do that myself. And I am not surprised that you were approached by that girl. I hope it works out well for you.

  5. I am so in love with your hair! it looks gorgeous!

  6. Re British TV: you should watch The Misfits--I think you'd really enjoy it. And, of course, The Mighty Boosh is the greatest TV show EVAR.

    1. I haven't seen The Misfits! I've seen gif sets and have considered checking it out. But now I must!

      Can you believe I still haven't seen Boosh? I downloaded it a long time ago and just could never get beyond the first episode and ended up deleting it. Based on your insistence of it's awesomeness, I went and redownloaded series one! For some reason I can't figure out, I notice that a lot of British TV takes me several rewatches of the first few episodes until it finally clicks and I fall madly in love. So, because of you, I'm giving it another chance!

  7. Your hair is a wonder! I've never had anything but standard dye on my hair, but if I was able to pull off something else this is what I would want. I would only hope it would look half as amazing on me as it does on you!

    And you are too pretty :)

    Have fun on your date and with other stuff in life!

  8. Just stopping by to catch up and had to say, fire hair is FRIKKIN AWESOME!!!!
