Hello Summer Head

It was time to get into the summer mode mentality and that means spending a couple of hours with nasty chemicals on my head to bleach out the brown and replace it with the blond. I'm lucky to have a wife who's a pro so I can basically just let her do her thing and just try not to go insane from the burning and itching on my scalp.

By her own admission, this is the best bleach job we've done so far on me and I'm pretty happy with it. It was a bit too bright last night but a couple of showers and some de-brasser shampoo and conditioner and the color is mellowing out and, I think, looks pretty damned good.

Of course, the kids at my schools think its absolutely freaking awesome-tastic.

And it makes me smile everytime I see myself in the mirror which is good for me and my mental health. Hard to be too serious when you've got a pile of hay for hair!

There's a part of me that wonders if having a blond head will negatively affect my job hunting but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it and I'm starting to interview. Speaking of which, based on my sister's excellent advice, I'm going to start planning and requesting some informational interviews with a couple of companies I want to work for to see if I really want to work for them when I get a closer look. Its also a good way for them to get an informal look at me.

I will report back on whether or not blonds do, in fact, still have more fun.
