To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

A Hairy Update 2

The Goatmother went to a hairdresser.  Actually, she went to a brand new hairdresser because while she was away her old hairdresser retired.  The nerve of some people.  Anyway, the Goatmother doesn't look like Letterman any more.  Her mood has improved greatly, for which I am exceedingly grateful, and  she actually went out of the house yesterday without a head covering for the very first time in 8 months.  February 7th is an auspicious day, I say.  Her hair is still short, mind you, and her head still gets cold, but, hey, the possibility is there.  And real.  And she doesn't look like Letterman.  Now she looks a little more like Ann Hathaway.  Life is good.

" And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair ." - Khalil Gibran

Okay, well, the wind may have to wait just a bit longer.

Anne Hathaway is WAAAAAY CUTER than Letterman... I'm so happy for the Goatmother!

Marigold said...

Dear Goats and Hounds,
Well, I didn't say it changed her face any. :)

I had to Google Letterman, but now I can see that it's not a good look for a Goatmother.

Hooray for the new hairdresser!

Dear Penny,
Ha!Ha! Ha! Now I'll have to Google to see if there is an equivalent of Letterman across the pond! LOL! Hallooo!, Higgins! Smell some of those spring flowers for me! :) Although I would eat them.

Google Letterman... I had to Google Hathaway!!! But I'm with goatsandhounds... You're so much better off looking like Anne Hathaway!!!

Going to the hairdresser must be a bit like going out for chocolate. What a way to celebrate!

Marigold said...

Dear SnowCatcher,
And you don't even have the excuse of living across the pond. Oy. I say as long as the Goatmother doesn't look like an Alpine she's in good shape. Plus any hair is good hair, isn't it?

(It's all good, remember? The straight kind and the un-rul-EE kind.)

Pixie cuts are hot, I tell you! You're right on trend.

And yes, looking Hathaway-like is much preferable to looking Letterman-like. :)

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
Does this mean the Goatmother is going to sprout wings and start throwing around glittery dust??? Oy.

From Letterman to Hathaway - excellent progress!

Marigold said...

Dear Ginnie,
It is at least an improvement. :)
