well, it's done.
Training is over here at Ft Eustis. We all thought that we'd have some tactical convoy training; alas, all the vehicles are out with the Lieutenants from the Officer Basic Course, and so we're SOL. I passed my test just fine; I only got 5 questions wrong.

Then... ah, then. Then I went to the mall. And I did a very virtuous thing, by donating to charity. And I really gave where it hurts.

I donated about 12-14" of my hair to Locks of Love. It's now about two inches shorter than I wanted it to be, but it's really really cute, and it'll grow.

This is SO WEIRD. I haven't had hair this short in over 15 years. (And when I did, it didn't look this good.)



Sorry the "after" pictures are fuzzy. You takes what you can get when you're trying to take piccies in the mirror.

i feel: weird weird

I think that it looks good on you, and Lynn agrees with me.

Thank you! I really like the look; it's just odd to run my fingers through my hair and finish *way* before I think I should. ;-)

Thank you! I actually cut it so that it would fit under my Kevlar. The long hair, when up in a bun, would tip the helmet over my eyes and that's just dangerous. I'll be letting it grow when I get home. ;-D

I was getting ready to wail and gnash, but.. it does suit you rather well. :)

That is a big difference, but it looks good like that.

YOU CUT YOUR HAIR?!? NOOOO... oh.. wait, the 'new' look still looks really good!

Had to, though. It was choice between where seeing where I was shooting, and, well, not.

I think you look adorable with the new haircut! It makes you look perky :)
tashabear From: tashabear Date: December 7th, 2004 02:33 pm (UTC) (base camp)
Perky? Oh my... I'll be sure to use this power only for... well... evil...

...that looks pretty good...and I bet it's far easier to take care of, too!

Dammit, I want your hair! You can have mine!

Re: Actually...

No, that's okay... But maybe I shoulda saved that tail, huh?
