Sharing my world 3/26/18

miss picWhat is your favorite color of hair? You can name your hair color or a color that you just like.  I don’t really have a favorite per se, but I did dye my hair dark auburn for a long time. I think it just looked good on me. I don’t like my hair color (dirty blonde, light brown, honey blonde, pick a label) on me because I think it makes me look washed out and kind of… bland, so I dyed it. I look absolutely horrible with black hair… like a goth gone wrong. And if I accidentally dye my hair too red, complete strangers on the street will come up to me and ask me if I’m feeling ill. This also happens if I wear the wrong color clothing. Too much yellow in my skin tone.  Dark Auburn is just the right color for me.  This is a rare picture of me when I was in Mississippi going to college (about 2010). The color of my hair here is just about as blonde as I’d let it get before dying it again, kind of a strawberry blonde, but not quite red.  You can see how yellow my skin gets when my hair gets red. This also how you’d find me whenever I was outside in Mississippi, With an umbrella to keep the sun off of me and a fan because it was flipping hot! Also coffee, because… coffee.

That being said, I do like black hair. My youngest daughter person dyed her hair black with kind of purplish highlights once and it looked pretty awesome on her.

I-am-who-I-want-to-beList at least 5 things that you are good atI’m not an expert at much of anything. I’m what they call a Jack of all trades but master of none.  I dabble. Some people might think this is a bad thing, but the truth of the matter is, I kind of get bored with things. There hasn’t been anything in this world that holds my interest long enough for me to become an expert in it.  I mean, I used to be good at writing because I had a natural flare for it. I wrote short stories and poetry but I didn’t even try to write them. I just did.  And people liked what I wrote.  I might could crank out a short story now if I concentrated and it might be good, but I no longer have the drive to do so. I still have the drive to write, which is why I have this blog, but the medium has changed.


ETA hair color at this time

I’m pretty good at doing 3D rendering, but again I’m nowhere near an expert at it. I only know what I’ve picked up via videos and tutorials. But for having never taken a class, I think I do okay with it. Which is weird because I have pretty awful depth perception.

I am the best me I can possibly be. There’s no one who can be a better me than me. I’m pretty awesome at being Willow. I may bitch and moan about things, but life has its inconveniences. I mean, that’s the way of the world, right? Without darkness, how would one know there is light? There has to be shadow in the world or we’d all be blind. But yeah, I’m pretty damned good at being me.

My husband tells me that I’m his favorite wife. Of course I’m the only one he’s ever had, so there’s that. He’s also MY favorite husband — I’ve had three, so that carries a bit more weight on my end, but hey, I’ll take it. I must be doing a pretty good job at being a good partner for the hubster.

I’m getting pretty good at this Photoshop thing if I do say so myself. Ha!

What is your favorite animal or type of animal? (pets, dolphins, stuffed, wild cats, etc)  I don’t really have a favorite, but I did think of this song…

It’s been a long time since I’ve heard this song. I’m glad it’s on YouTube.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.  So, as some of y’all know, I watch other people play video games. Yesterday I was watching Gopher play Skyrim Special Edition and this happened (video is set to start at when it happened and you only need to watch about ten seconds of it).


If you don’t want to watch the video, what happened was this… Gopher’s character, Lenny, was sneaking through the sewers (it’s a long story) and this NPC found him and killed him. After the death move, the NPC said some generic NPC dialogue to Lenny’s dead body, as they will do, which amounted to, “…this must be your lucky day.” I literally laughed for minutes after watching that.

    I’m in the same boat with my hair color. I often go a deep chocolate brown or auburn. But my natural color reminds me of dirty dish water. It washes me out and just looks bleh.

    Your natural color is pretty much the same as mine was, but it never stayed that way for long. It turns out hair really IS a moving target. Now its mostly white with hints of bronze and just a soupcon of battleship gray. I just call it “me” and move on.
