People, I have a HUGE problem. It’s my hair. It’s in a dire state. It has reached that point where comparing it to straw would be a compliment. It’s so coarse and dry that I am too ashamed to leave the house without the cold comfort of a cap, or a wig. Yes, I’ve reached the point where synthetic fibres are preferable to my locks.
But don’t worry I’ve called in the experts. I have an appointment with the hairdresser tomorrow, for a cut and blow. I have a feeling that she will need way more than conditioner to turn me into Rapunzel. A wand, perhaps?
And in other unrelated hair news …
My friends and I will be heading to Langebaan for the weekend. Where some of us will be running the Weskus half marathon and others will be doing things that don’t end in tears or regret.
Scholarship and Argus Cycle Tour
This weekend was rather boring, and most of it was spent in front of the computer filling in an application form for a grant. If successful the grant will cover some of my expenses to attend a conference in California. The application form asked such relevant questions as, “What is your GIS expertise?” and “Are you willing to sleep in a tent.” I kid you not!
Unfortunately my dedication meant that I missed out on Juan’s participation in the Argus Cycle Tour. Sad face. Apparently the girls had gone to great lengths to support him. Special cheerleader outfits were created and trains were taken on the day.
I will also be going sandboarding later this month. I’d promise to upload lots of pics and provide a full detailed report. But considering that I have yet to report back on my shark cage diving, stand-up paddle boarding and ziplining adventures, maybe it is best if I don’t make any promises?
That’s about all folks! What’s been happening with you?
