Wednesday Wishes

This is Wednesday leaning out of her cat tree. She may look like just your average gray tabby cat, but she has many skills. Most of these skills, she uses for The Good. Okay, 'most' might be a slight exaggeration. Wednesday is a good little kitty, though, at heart. She loves her family, loves her sisters, loves annoying those sisters and she also loves to grant wishes. Every Wednesday morning, I will rub the side of the cat house and summon our magic cat!

My Wednesday Wishes for the week:

1) New hair color! On a whim last night (never a good thing), I purchased a bottle of Mahogony hair color. Then, I had my mother with her ever failing eyesight, put it on my head. Yes, yes, laugh all you want. The result is...embarrassing. And the worst part? Not only had my hairdresser refused to ever color me red again, I'm now going to be caught redhanded. Or purple handed because there is definitely a purplish tone to it. With CHUNKS of blonde all over because mom missed spots. I'm prepared to go in on Friday and make atonement to the Hair Gods. I deserve every ounce of ridicule I'm going to get for the two hours I am in that chair AND there is no way that I'm getting out without a hairstyle of HIS choice now. At least my mother got an evening of laughter out of this. Her stomach hurts she laughed so hard. Yuck it up.

2) Is it eleven am yet??? Dental appointment at 9am. I can't wait until 11am because it will be over (knock on wood), I'll be in Starbucks getting a coffee AND then I'll be in theater to watch Harry Potter. YAY me!

3) Another week to finish my NaNo novel. 50,000 words does not a novel make in my world. Not with this story. So, did I really finish NaNo? I got just over 50,000 but I still have probably another 15-20,000 to go. Does that count? Well, I'm moving forward. I have decided to EXTEND my NaNo. I'm not going back to rewrites on the first book until I have this one completely out of the birth canal!

What about you? What are your wishes for Wednesday this week?


  1. Congratulations on winning NaNo Jennie and good luck with the extension! The end is in sight, can you see the light? I should delete that unintentional rhyme but maybe it'll get a smile. Anyways, good for you keeping on keeping on while the fire is there. Good luck with your dentist appointment too!
    - Sophia.

  2. Bahahahahahaha! I'm sorry. But I have been there...And it's funny. ;)

    I wish for you to get your last words written!
    I also wish for moisture in the air(ha right) and your dental appointment goes smoothly!

  3. oh! Not a hair disaster... :o\ been there, done that. Made myself look like a felt tipped pen once...

    Would it help to get highlights???

  4. Jennie, you made me laugh out loud at my desk! Luckily, not TOO uncommon a thing, so my students still work, unphased. ;) Once I tried to highlight my girlfriend's hair, and she wore a distinct skunk-streak for weeks.

    But hurray for redheads! Crossing fingers that your stylist keeps you mahogany. :)

    My Wednesday wishes? That the mouse Jay caught this morning by the fridge is the ONLY mouse in our house. Grrr. Not a fan of the rodents by my food . . . ;)

  5. Hahaha, I'm so sorry! You should take a picture of your hair, though--someday that will make a great story! And besides the dentist appointment, sounds like you had a pretty good day!

  6. Ha, purple hair ;p I had my sister in law try to hilight my hair one time. It was awful. I went to like a smartcuts/greatclips/hair-chain place and had them fix it because I was too embarrassed to go to my regular hair dresser (I hadn't been going to him very long- I've been with him almost 8 years now). And, awesome job on your NaNo novel! You'll be able to crank the rest of that puppy out in no time!
