The One Where I Prove My Stupidity

Before I (further?) prove my stupidity, I need to take care of some housekeeping type stuff.  Don't worry, not housecleaning type stuff-bleck! I don't like to do housework, much less write about it.  More like, tie up some loose ends, and such.

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

First of all, 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party 2010 is over.  The pizza rolls are long gone, the Jon Gosselin pinata was decimated by day 2, and the replacement pinatas (Tiger Woods and John Edwards, of course), are destroyed, as well.  Good times, right? The party was a huge success, as far as I'm concerned! I've found so many great  new blogs to read, that I think I'm going to have to quit my job just so I can keep up! (Who needs a stinkin' paycheck anyway, I've got blogs to read!) I'm not going to name names, because I wouldn't want to leave anyone out, but seriously, I've found some great reads, and met some fun, talented, and inspiring people! am stunned and flattered and stunned and thrilled and stunned and tickled pink (oh yeah, and STUNNED!) by all of the comments I've received, and by...HELLO! all of my new followers!  Frankly, I'm surprised that anyone reads my blog, much less 31 of you, so thank you for taking the time to stop in here and read my various ramblings.  I've really appreciated all of your kind words-they've definitely been the highlights of my week.

So, on with the stupidity.  I'm basically one pair of dark shades away from being blind-at least when I'm not wearing my contact lenses or glasses.  I generally shower without either, so reading is not something I do while I bathe.  Image my surprise this morning, when something possessed me to put my conditioner bottle exactly 2 inches away from my eye so that I could read the label.  My lovely, creamy, white conditioner, is actually...wait for it.....shampoo.  Yes indeedy, I've been washing my hair twice every morning for an indefinite amount of time with two different shampoos. This would go a long way towards explaining why my hair is not dark brown like in my profile picture, but is actually a light, mousy brown, after only about 4 weeks after coloring.  Shampooing twice daily, even with color safe shampooS will do that, I suppose.  I am an idiot, but at least I have clean hair!  Providing comic relief with examples of my idiocy: it's what I do best.  But gee, my hair smells terrific!


  1. LOL! The shampooing cracked me up. AND I love the pinatas! Smash away, smash away all!

    Glad to have partied with ya!

  2. Hahaha That is SO me! I am blind without my glasses on and I'm normally a contact lens wearer but lost one and haven't been able to replace it. When I'm in the shower, if there is a spider crawling on me, I'd never even know. I could easily see myself washing and conditioning with shampoo.

  3. LOL-I have a feeling that my friends and family aren't going to let me live this one down for quite a while!
    I wondered why my conditioner lathered...

  4. I've done the very same thing! Also, I've gotten in the shower with my glasses ON before.

    This last time my hair color didn't even last a week because I had forgotten I had moussed my clean hair the day before, so the color did, adhere to the gray very well :-)

    Glad to have found you through UBP---Your blog is so fun and well written!

  5. Thank you, Mary!
    I'm glad it's not just me with the shampoo thing.

  6. Oh my gosh, that is too funny! Well, I'm sure your hair has been squeaky clean. :)

  7. LOL! That is so funny. At least it was shampoo....I have always had this deep fear of Nair being in one of those bottles.

    Blessings to you.

  8. I LOVE this!! I am not blind and I do stuff like this ALL the time...maybe not for ongoing indefinite amounts of time BUT I can identify!! LOL!! So funny :)

  9. Yes, my hair had been very clean. I used just one shampoo today, and my hair didn't feel nearly as clean-maybe I had a good thing going there, after all...
    At least with Nair, you have that awful smell to warn you!
    My Mom told me that once she accidentally used spray starch instead of hairspray! She had to wash her hair and start over.


I love comments! Thanks for reading my post!
