It was one of those weekends. The kind that are so bad that you are glad to get back to work. Here's a sampling of the suckage: I had a surprise visit to the mechanic Saturday morning that cost me $600 and 3 hours of my life. I then went to the salon to get re-blonded, and get my eyebrows cleaned up. Now, this is not the first time I've had my eyebrows done (please refer to my myspace blog). But, I was assured that this was "super special low heat very special wax for very sensitive skin." Mm-hm. More on that in a bit. Saturday night I worked a show at Old Town, and I got my parents tickets to the show. Well, for the first time in my 3 years of volunteering there, a lady collapsed in the middle of the show. Thankfully there were many doctors in the house. When the paramedics arrived it took a little while for them to get her stable enough to take her out of the concert hall, so Kathy Mattea had us all singing Kumbaya (I am so not kidding) to fill the time. I doubt my parents will EVER go back there. Then, as they were leaving my mom (tactful that she is) pulled me aside and said "Honey, are you planning on going out tonight?" I said "Yes, John's band is playing down the street." She said "Yeah, maybe you're not going." I said "Why?" She said just go to the bathroom and look." Well, my stupid fucking eyebrows got all Frankenstein on me AGAIN. So, the super special stuff only took longer to Ruin My Face. Sunday also sucked, except for the Rock of Love 2 Reunion show. That rocked. I totally see a Rock of Love 3 in my future. Oh, my mom called Sunday morning to tell me she had the perfect solution to my eyebrow/face problem: "Hi Von. It's your mother. I have a great idea! Let's go to Great Clips and get you some bangs!" "Um, what?!" "Yes, you know bangs." "Um, why? I haven't had bangs in over 12 years." "Yes, but it will cover up the nastiness brought on from the waxing issue." Yes, mother, because bangs that will suck and take forever to grow out again is such a great fix for a problem that should be cleared up in a few days.
