I thought I would get off politics for a day or two.

I plan to color my hair today, it's getting a bit gray around the edges. I used to be a dark brunette, but when I started going gray those darn grays would pop out only a few days after coloring. So I started going lighter, the grays blended better. I lightened myself all the way to blonde. DH isn't a fan of blondes (or at least me as a blonde, I'm sure there are blondes he wouldn't pass up if given the opportunity : ) I've been heading back to a light brown lately and I think that's where I'll stay, at least for now. I get bored easily, so who knows, I haven't been a redhead for a few years : )

In light of this, I took a quiz to tell me what color my hair should really be:

Your Hair Should Be Brown
You are an intelligent, well respected person.
You are very confident. You take yourself seriously, and other people take you seriously too.

You are a good leader, and you can be trusted with someone's life.
You motivate people well, and you command respect easily.

You are competent, successful, and organized. You can't stand chaos.
Some people mistake you for being cold, calculating, or elitist.

Ok, brown it is. Although it will be a light brown. L'Oreal Superior Preference 6 1/2G Lightest Golden Brown to be exact.

Who knew I could learn so much about myself taking a quiz about hair color! Although I never thought of myself as being mistaken for cold, calculating or elitist. Ok, maybe I'll give you calculating, LOL.

All of this hair talk reminds me of the song "Hair" from where else, the musical "Hair".

She asks me why
I'm just a hairy guy
I'm hairy noon and night
Hair that's a fright
I'm hairy high and low
Don't ask me why
Don't know
It's not for lack of bread
Like the Grateful Dead

Gimme head with hair
Long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming,
Streaming, flaxen, waxen

Give me down to there hair
Shoulder length or longer
Here baby, there mama
Everywhere daddy daddy

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it,
show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

Let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas
in my hair
A home for fleas
A hive for bees
A nest for birds
There ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my...

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty
Oily, greasy, fleecy
Shining, gleaming, streaming
Flaxen, waxen
Knotted, polka-dotted
Twisted, beaded, braided
Powdered, flowered, and confettied
Bangled, tangled, spangled, and spaghettied!

Oh say can you see
My eyes if you can
Then my hair's too short

Down to here
Down to there
Down to where
It stops by itself

They'll be ga ga at the go go
When they see me in my toga
My toga made of blond
Biblical hair

My hair like Jesus wore it
Hallelujah I adore it
Hallelujah Mary loved her son
Why don't my mother love me?

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

I found a playlist version of the song by the Cowsills, it's below if you'd like to listen. I tried to find the original cast version, which is where the above words come from, but to no avail. I like the musical lyrics best, but this'll do.

Hey, thanks for the comment but unfortunately it's an old picture and I don't look like that anymore. :(

I just took the quiz and I came up the same as you, brown, which is good since I am a brunette :)

The link didn't work though.

I fixed the link. I always have that problem with blogthings. I have to go back and manually add the link......forgot this time.
