Ali Unplugged

I'm thinking its time to take a step back from all of this technology.  I want to move this blog to a once a month update for a little while, if even that.  I love you all dearly, and I'm thankful for the connections that blogging has provided, but I need a little bit of time to refocus ;)

So this is why I'll not be commenting on any of your blogs for a while, nothing personal I promise!

Love to you all

The other shoe drops

And today the inevitable happened, I regretted cutting my hair.  I knew it would come, it always does--and the shorter I go the sooner it happens.  *sigh*

The most I can muster about my hair is that it's "ok," and I fantasize about getting extensions or turning back time and changing that decision (you know you are delusional when turning back time feels like a viable option).  The thing is, every time I wash my hair and style it, it looks ten shades of hideous.  It's only after two or three days of bedhead and oil buildup (sorry) that it starts to look tolerable, but that wash day I look like a frumpy Mom from the 60's.  I think it's due to the fact that I have an inordinate amount of hair and it must be slept on for it to lay flat, and being short makes this worse.

Here's where you all can help me:

I have posted a few quizzes to the right, please take the time out of your life to validate my existence (I'm so vain) and help me make my decision  (and remember, the polls are anonymous, so feel free to be as honest as you can)

Perhaps next post will be a  little less superficial, but for now, it's all about my hair.

And the winner is.....


Congratulations! Email me your address Bri (sad that I don't have it, isn't it?), and I will send your giftcard out post-haste! (email address to the right ----> )

And thank you everyone else for entering and reading my blog! For the record, this was a plot to see who reads my blog on a regular basis (shame on you Adam and Becky), but not a plot for people to compliment my hair, I promise!

And for all of those who didn't win, don't worry, there will be others, and if it makes you feel any better, I never win anything either.

Picture and first ever GiveAway!!!

Alright, here it is. Crazy huh? I still go back and forth on this one, but I don't think I'll pay the 800 dollars to get extensions...

Ever since I wrote that last post though, I have had different Pat Benetar songs going through my head, and I decided to buy her greatest hits from itunes, and I have to say, I think it's a goodie! And to that end, and also because I love my blog readers, I've decided to give the gift of Pat Benetar to one of my lucky readers! Actually, since I know not everyone loves Pat Benetar, I will be giving away

one 15$ itunes giftcard to a lucky reader

that way you can buy some tunes of your choosing (even though I highly recommend Pat Benetar's greatest hits). There are a few stipulations though:

*I must either know you personally, or you must have commented on my blog previous to this post
*you must comment on this post to be entered--no email entries will be accepted (you do not have to have a blogger account to leave a comment, but you might want to at least leave a name...)

These are mainly just to stop people from doing a blog search for the word "giveaway" and entering without being a reader of my blog. So essentially, if you can make a good case (You're a friend of a friend of a friend or something), I'll enter you in the drawing.

You have until January 9th 11:59pm MST to enter

Good luck and thanks for reading my blog!
