“Do you know the lead singer of ‘She & Him?'”

I had the weirdest thing happen to me yesterday at work.  Picture it: I am in my uniform (yes, we have to wear a uniform!)… my blue shirt with horrible, orange-gold accents on the sleeve and collar hem, my totally stylish matching blue visor, my khaki pants, and an apron.  Stylin’, right?  Anyway, I had a fellow mall employee walk up, and before she ordered, ask me if I knew the girl from ‘She & Him’.  I asked ‘what girl?’ while my insides immediately named the woman, but I refused to believe it.  So she went off and listed a bunch of thing the actress has been in.  I can’t take it anymore and I say:

Zooey Deschanel?”

She responds, excitedly, “yes!  Her!  Well, you look like her.” She notes my puzzled expression, “Really.  Have you seen her?  You do.”

Beg pardon?  I’m a natural blonde and while my current and almost natural color is truly radiant, it is hardly black or brown.  I don’t get it.  I asked the fiance and he just gave me a puzzled look until I told him she was the chick in ‘The Happening’.  He didn’t seem to agree.  At all.  I don’t think I do, either.  The woman in question is the following.  She’s been in a ton of things.  She’s also thirty.  I’m not sure whether to be flattered or just completely baffled.

I’m not sure I see it.  I mean, she’s got better features than I do.  Maybe it’s the eyes or something, I don’t know.  I recently had to color my hair, again, because I suffer from being a natural blonde with dark roots (and have throughout my life since puberty, sigh!) so coloring is necessary.  Otherwise I look like a meth addict, a hooker, or possibly, Courtney Love on a good day.  Anyway, it turned out to be really close to my natural color (sans dark roots) and it is glorious.  No, it is.  It’s shiny and beautiful.  I guess it’s true, using this same hair color stuff makes your hair awesome!  It’s been awesome lately.  I am in love with my own hair.  Anyway, it brings out my eyes and my pale complexion wonderfully.  I want this hair color forever!

So maybe that’s it.  The stuff I switched to using is Clairol’s Natural Instincts… which are amazing.  There is no funky smell, no nasty effect on the hair, in fact, it makes my hair feel healthier.  It’s shinier and really more willing to cooperate.  I love it.  It also only takes ten minutes, though I usually do twenty.  I got Sahara this time and while it did not come out at all as light as it did on the box, it almost resembles my hair color.  Plus, it doesn’t do the ‘all over’ one color.  It naturally seems to blend with whatever color your hair was before.  It’s very dynamic.  I love it!  I may just keep using this and stop getting my hair professionally done if she can’t achieve this same color.

Anyway, enough of that crap.  I FINALLY GOT WEDDING SHOES!  The torture is over, you have no idea how happy that makes me.  I was so sick of looking at ugly, ugly shoes.  I settled on a pair I found at Zappos.  Usually, I can’t get these type of sandals to fit me… but these?  Fit like a dream.  I am in love.  Hooray!

Fiance and I have also been working out butt off with Wiifit.  We bought it Easter weekend and it’s really, really helped.  My thighs are as tight as tree trunks and my abdomen is slowly going back to the days of my super, extreme pilates workouts!  Woohoo!  I am very excited about it.  As long as you treat it as an exercise instead of a game, it’s great.  I was pretty floored when it told me my BMI was a little below normal, though.  I weight about 135lbs right now, and I’m 5’7″.  Two years ago?  I weighed about 115lbs.  Apparently that was severely underweight, but I felt great.  But I also lost my boobs.  And that sucked.

My last day at work is also this Saturday.  Wow.  It’s been over a year and it’s finally over.

So far, May is going well.  A hell of a lot better than April.
