Why I Suck at Being a Redhead

There are a few things in which I excel.

One of them is making CD mixes.
The secret is in the transitions.

I'm also good at wiping up dirt and dog hair from the floor with my bare hands.

This is an incredibly efficient method as it saves time from getting out the vacuum and searching for a plug that is unoccupied. And around here, they are never unoccupied.

That said, there are a few things I suck at.

Like hammering holes in the wall. I suck at it because I have a complete and utter disregard for studs. I mean, they're never where you need them.

I also suck at being a redhead. Or more precisely, staying a redhead.


For those of you who've been around here for awhile, you know that I used to look like this:





Now (thank you midlife crisis) I look like this:





Which means I color my hair.


Which means that in doing so, my bathroom door looks like this:






And my bathroom rug looks like this:





And my bathroom wall looks like this:






You see, I tried to cover the dye marks with paint, but alas, I suck at matching paint colors.


But I do have another idea.


I'm thinking I can cover the whole mess with these babies:






'Cause as some of you know, I'm a very good decorator.


I'm also starting to suck in my Humor-Blogs ratings, so how about a smiley?

I think we share a bathroom! My splatters are everywhere, too. Now, if you tell me you wear the same grey tshirt I do when I color my red locks, I'll commend us on what a great job we do timing this task so we each get to wear the shirt.

Me? Oh, I love the baby heads on the steps. LOVE them!

Love your red hair, but your bathroom could be from the set of Psycho

Kay said...

Yay for red hair! We have all the fun yes?

I think I am looking a bit too blond actually... must go get a touch up....

But I won't even attempt to do it myself, I know my limits :P

Hello redheaded Joni Mitchell!

And dude, the list of things you are good at -- longer than that.

Laura said...

I'm trying to sell my house and my daughter keeps dyeing her hair black. Needless to say, those splotches all over aren't what they talk about on Sell This House.

I guess there's always a drawback. But the color on your head looks great.

Sue said...

OMG! Your bathroom has all the same traits that mine does.

It may be because of my Y chromosome which of course makes me practical and clever, but why would you not have just painted the whole wall?

muskrat said...

i think you're doing well. it's art.

Paul said...

Hey. First comment, from the mothership. Did you get this? Also, what's on the b-side of that record anyway? And did die splatter ruin the vinyl or could I play it? Bye.

Chris Wood said...

That bathroom is nowhere near the mess you make it out to be. Trust me, I'm a man who lives alone.

That bathroom is PRISTINE!

Matt said...

Your super power of creating mix tapes is actually quite nice. I've seen many other super powers that are far more boring and useless.

Poobomber said...

Nice try - the "hair dye" excuse may work on the police and forensic investigators, but serial killers like me can see right through your guises.

Some of my towels have permanent blue staining on them after dying a friend's hair blue. And my shower hose is almost always in a slight tone of pink after my rendevous with the dyes. AND, my towels, and some shirts are a nice prickly white after some crazy ass bleach has gotten on them. Oh.. the hairfun-mess.

TroubleX2 said...

OMG! I was sooo gonna say how scary those baby heads were. And...how do you go to the bathroom with them staring at you. Nightmares cometh!

By the way, your post made me smile. You might even have gotten a snicker or two :)

Once a ginger, always a ginger.

There's nothing I like more than people taking pics of the flaws in their home. Seriously. It makes me feel like I'm not alone. So thank you for that.

Lisa said...

That baby looking thing is creepy. I hope you don't have small children in your bathroom often!

Muse said...
