Finally Friday

I have to begin my Friday with an apology to Ellen Meister because I blogged the wrong version of her book the other day. The release I should have been blogging is her PAPERBACK release, not her hardback. So even better news for my blog readers. You can pick up Ellen's fabulous book for a lower price. Here's the cool PB cover, so you know what you're looking for and a new link to Barnes & Noble to buy the book!

Today's my last day of training in Los Angeles. That's means my last day of going to bed at 7:30 pm and waking up at 4:00 am. Woohoo!

The hotel I've been staying at is a total pit. On the first day the toilet wouldn't flush, now it won't stop running. Last night the bathtub clogged (it also has a drip) so I got to listen to the drip hit the clogged water all night. The walls and floors are so thin that you can hear everything and the bed is so hard that I've done most of my sleeping in a recliner - which is not much more comfortable. I have an enormous crick in my upper back and shoulders, so I'm certain I'll be getting a massage tomorrow. Of course, that's AFTER I arrive home at approx 1:30 am.

And bummer of all bummers, apparently there was an earthquake here Wed night and I slept through it. I've always wanted to experience one and God knows, I'm not moving here. So there was my chance and I missed it all. Of course, with the construction quality of the hotel, I might have mistaken it for the woman in the room above me walking.

Went shopping yesterday after class and you'll be happy to know that I still managed to keep myself from buying shoes. It's a damned good thing I did a carryon. If I had checked baggage, things might not have gone so well. But I did make one purchase and it was a hell of a deal.

I bought hair.

I know what you're thinking - why don't I just grow some. Well, I'm trying, but I've only managed six inches or so in more than a year. I would really like to have long hair but can't do glued or braided extensions either because my hair is so fine it would ruin it. So I found this hair place yesterday that has those clip in extensions - real hair - so it can be colored, curled, etc. I looked into this in Dallas and the best price I found was $750. Not so in LA. In LA, where everything is fake, apparently really good hair sells for $150 for a 7-piece set.

Whoohoo! Now, as soon as I get girly enough to figure out how to put it in, I can have long hair. I can't wait to get home and play with it.

Okay, must run now and get some work done on the new wip. Only another 40 minutes until 6:00 am when the cafe opens.
