Howdy.

Writing this post at y'all from Shanghai, where I'm residing for the next three months as an online lol-news journalism intern.

If anyone happens to be sitting on life hacks for living in Shanghai, lob away. (In particular, how costly/difficult/time-consuming would it be to get from here to Hong Kong in late January... ? This info would be relevant to nothing in particular.)

But enough about me. The main purpose of this post is advertisement, motherfuckers. From the people who brought you The Wardrobe Meme, [livejournal.com profile] vergoldung and I (... mostly Eleonore) introduce to you:

~***THE    GET TO KNOW MY HAIR    MEME***~


  1. Describe your natural hair, or alternatively, your current hair.

  2. How do you usually wear your hair? Do you generally put time and effort into your weave? Or are you a lazy-ass bitch like OP?

  3. What is your hair-washing schedule? Do you have an ironclad hair-care regimen? Tell us your secrets!!!!!!!!!

  4. What's your go-to hairstyle for dressing up? As in, the hairstyle that looks bomb for when you want to look done up, while being a safe bet (because you've mastered that motherfucker.)

  5. Do / have you dye/d your hair and if so, what colours. Can you compete with OP's colour-damaged ends or nah?

  6. Haircut regrets and/or haircut nostalgia.

  7. Two options: A) Show us the holy grail of your hairstyling abilities. B) The most epic hair somebody else has done on your head.

  8. What is your #1 unattainable hair goal, the reason you lie awake at night?

  9. Last but not least: Gratuitous hair picspam time. In no particular order, share your fave hair-themed selfies. Doesn't matter how old the pic or how shitty the lighting--all we care about is celebrating the cuteness of your hair!!!!!!



In other news some cohorts may be pleased to know that

  • I watched all of The Producers with Eleonore. Pterodactyl screeching occurred.

  • I am some 70 pages into the Engelsfors trilogy.


Peace 'n' blessings.

CONGRATULATIONS on the internship!! Also Shanghai!! (I have always wanted to visit, and so am immediately jealous. If you go to Hong Kong I will be jealous x10000000.)

I would discuss my hair, but it's been a long, torturous relationship and we have finally just about made peace with each other, so I don't want to rock the boat.

Your decision is devastating IMO. I hope you will reconsider.

Congrats on the internship!!

I am some 70 pages into the Engelsfors trilogy.

YYYAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY

It took SO LONG for the third book to come out in English (8 MONTHS OVERDUE) that I have to reread the first two and now have a backlog of other books, and so it is just sitting on my shelf, so wonderfully thick that I suspect the spine will give out and pages will come loose by the time I'm done reading.

OMG SHANGHAI

Ugh I want to go too. I've never been to the north of China, so sadly cannot advise on how costly it would be, only the South, which was never more than an overnight train to Hong Kong. Time-consuming-wise, I'm almost certain there would be direct flights so if you went that route, it should take a few hours to get from one to the other.

And lol @ the hair meme 'cos mine would be the most boring answers ever, but why don't you answer all the questions about your hair. Inquiring minds want to know.

INDEED

Your wisdom is noted. Honestly, I'd prefer train since I fear airports. Yet, I also fear overnight transport. Pray for me.

A likely excuse. tbh I myself dread doing the meme as I hate putting effort into my narcissism. But who am I to refuse popular demand. *deep sigh*

hope ur internship goes so well!!!

WELL WELL WELl what's this? an excuse 2 talk abt myself???

Current hair: chin-length w lots of layers & undercut, dark brown (naturally lighter brown). natural texture is v wavy

i am Very Lazy about my hair, i don't ever do any ~styles, just. fuck with it enough each day so that the waves do the correct thing

i wash my hair like?? every two days??? but it's very low maintenance, i haven't brushed it in years.

lol lol i don't know how to be fancy. i'll just straighten it more than usual.

let's see i've been brown, reddish, blonde~ ombre~, almost black, dark brown. going back to almost black soon! but it's not super color damaged because i cut it off all the time

haircut nostalgia, hmm. i had it longish brown to blonde w a good undercut for a while, i liked that. i haven't really regretted anything except i recently realized that i should never have long-long hair again probably

lol. i don't have any ~proof of my hairstyling abilities. and my hair is never done fancy. BUT! i do cut my own hair, and the hairs of friends

unattainable hair goal, hmmmm. i kind of want bright color-colors, but i can't do that because i'm an Annoying Designer and i couldn't have hair a color that couldn't match with any clothes, so.

OH YOU'RE ENCOURAGING ME SO MUCH well. since u asked. here is a collection of hair-related selfies from the past year or so

Ugh no. Like the moment you logged off after we were Tumblr-chatting I thought of about 37 bits of actually useful information about China, other than navigating the McDonald's menu. But I've forgotten it all now. Woe. NVM WHATEVER I AM SURE YOU WILL LOVE YAW TRUTH. Can we read your blog?

Pterodactyl screeching occurred.

Same.

I am some 70 pages into the Engelsfors trilogy.

What the hell is this? Shall we read it also?

Well, navigating the McDonald's menu is clearly the most of import.

NVM WHATEVER I AM SURE YOU WILL LOVE YAW TRUTH. Can we read your blog?

IDK what that means!!! but sadly I must decline your request as involves my ~real identity~ and whatnot.

The Engelsfors trilogy is a YA series about Swedish witches! I'm not far enough to give an in-depth rec but if that sounds like your thing then you and Gollum over there should certainly consider.

Why hello there! Hair meme post!

1. Describe your natural hair, or alternatively, your current hair.

My natural hair is very Russian blonde and thick (like - just heavy weighty) but in August I started dyeing it red, a gold-red.

2. How do you usually wear your hair? Do you generally put time and effort into your weave? Or are you a lazy-ass bitch like OP?

L - A - Z - Y. I brush it and put a headband on. Ta da!

3. What is your hair-washing schedule? Do you have an ironclad hair-care regimen? Tell us your secrets!!!!!!!!!

I try to wash it every other day, or every third day if I'm being lazy/trying to schedule around an event.

4. What's your go-to hairstyle for dressing up? As in, the hairstyle that looks bomb for when you want to look done up, while being a safe bet (because you've mastered that motherfucker.)

I...am super lazy when it comes to my hair. Brushed and headband, let's go! I'll straighten it if I'm putting a lot of effort into it.

5. Do / have you dye/d your hair and if so, what colours. Can you compete with OP's colour-damaged ends or nah?

Yes - a dark red with some gold undertones right now, though I also went brunette my freshman year of college (I definitely life dangerously). And no! At least not yet. I hope not :(

6. Haircut regrets and/or haircut nostalgia.

ONE TIME A BAD HAIRDRESSER GAVE ME THE WORST BANGS EVER AND IT TOOK A YEAR TO GROW OUT. When I was growing my hair out from the brunette dye, there was also a period where my hair looked like a sunset between the shades of dark brown, faded brown, and blonde. Actually looked nice.

7. Two options: A) Show us the holy grail of your hairstyling abilities. B) The most epic hair somebody else has done on your head.

What nonsense.

8. What is your #1 unattainable hair goal, the reason you lie awake at night?

If I could curl my own hair without destroying it, the world would be a better place.

9. Last but not least: Gratuitous hair picspam time. In no particular order, share your fave hair-themed selfies. Doesn't matter how old the pic or how shitty the lighting--all we care about is celebrating the cuteness of your hair!!!!!!

Me with the bangs but before the red dye! I don't take many selfies :/

HELLO

1. HAIR COLOUR GOALS. Work.

lol that you even wash your hair that often. But that's none of my business. /lazier than thou

And no! At least not yet. I hope not :(

Cackling. Save yourself!!!!!! Don't end up like me!!!!

8. I feel datz...

HOW CAN YOU DEPRIVE US OF YOUR RED TRESSES but I understand. Your participation has been appreciated, comrade.

Woo go Shanghai! I look forward to hearing how it's going.

I'm still in America, surrounded by gross politics news and too close to the federal government for comfort. Seriously, I need to figure out how to bring back some balance to my life, otherwise I get all caught up in boring work and FINANCE and ACCOuNTING and it's so sad. HELP ME EVER-WAN KENOBI, YOU'RE MY ONLY HOPE.

Where are all the kids hanging these days? I really and truly want to dial myself back in, but sometimes it's hard on LJ because it feels like maybe nobody is still there if/when I post... /weeping ensues

Point being I MISS YOU and I've had the best time today looking at everyone's hair-meme posts. ♥

No idea what the kids are doing these days. Well, Eleonore and I are inventing 927 aesthetic memes in our bid to pretend LJ is still alive. Other than that, we're mostly in kpop land, I guess??

Anyway, VERY GOOD TO SEE YOU IN THESE PARTS TOO. LET'S DO IT AGAIN SOON, FRIEND. *throws hearts*
