Saturday, I went across the hall to get my hair cut. Awesome Russian lady was busy. I couldn't NOT let the other girl cut my hair. I could see the hack job she was doing to the guy currently in the chair. I was scared.
An old lady came in with her granddaughter and was a FREAK. She kept laughing at NOTHING while she sat beside/on me. That's not all that made her a freak. I will not go into all the boring details. After a few minutes though, she came out with this gem:
"Next time I come in here, I want a new haircut" *pulls out a picture*
Ladies and gentleman, she wants the Anne Murray.
So it was my turn in the chair of death, and the speed-talking woman asked me THREE times if I was sure of what I wanted, and then asked Awesome Russian Lady [ARL] twice if I was really sure. ARL has trained me to walk in and say 'army cut, high fade, zero on the sides, don't touch the top" ... its quick and she knows what she's doing. New girl questioned my judgment, and I was like GRR. The cut went well, but then at the end, she slammed a bunch of talcum powder down onto a large poofy brush thing, and then rubbed it all over my neck and head and face. Twice.
What the HELL? I had to walk all the way across the hall like this, then halfway across the apartment to the shower. That's like a whole minutes that I had to spend with this crap on me. And the smell, oh god. Awful.
I cleansed myself and then met Andrew at the Starbucks at the Lord Elgin. Classy. We headed over to city hall where my sister was working [she's a publicist] at a book launch about the Boat People from 70s or 80s or whatever. Project 4000. There was a bit of music, a bit of food, some gelatinous-like desserts, and my sister overseeing the selling of the books, which were flying off the tables. It let me use city hall for two hours. I mean, I'm paying for that crap, right? HAHA
After that, Alison headed back to Renfrew, and Andrew and I went to The Works where I ate an elk burger with brisket and bacon and gouda and an onion ring on it, with mashed potatoes and a cherry coke float. Best meal ever. Apparently elk is super healthy. We rolled our fat asses to his apartment after that. The works is very filling HAHA. Later, we went to see Baby Mama which was pretty darn funny. I love Tina Fey so very much.
Today, we headed to his parents' place for a BBQ which was totally delicious, even though it was day 2 of burgers.
I am now just 7 days away from moving to Renfrew. I still haven't told Tim. I've made the executive decision that I will be packing up everything and keeping it all neatly in the closet while I'm in Renfrew. This way, it will be easy to move out at the end of August when I move in with Andrew, or else I can move easily in a few weeks if Tim has someone that wants to live here June-August, which I doubt. My DVD collection will be moving immediately to Andrew's because I don't trust.
