Today I got my roots dyed back to the color I want them to be instead of gray. I am also letting my hair grow a little longer, and my stylist did a great job. I feel pretty!

While sitting in the chair with the dye doing its work, I read the all the People magazines I could get my hands on. I know I am getting older as I don't know who a third of these so-called celebrities are, and boy do they wear some crappy clothing in public. I got my hands on the "Style" issue and I actually found something useful - a leather backpack. I hope they are coming back into vogue as I really want one for when we travel. I'm going to look for one for my next trip, wherever it may be. France? Egypt? or California for my niece's wedding? Then, of course, there's the issue of spending money I don't have right now to get to such places.

Sitting there flipping through the magazine, I came across an ad for JCPenney. My mom always brought me and my brother to JCP before the start of the new school year for new clothes, socks and underwear. When I grew up and needed to restock the underwear drawer, I always went back to JCP for supplies. Then, with the help of a good friend, I was introduced to the Dillard's sale rack, and JCP went by the wayside. Still, you can't beat JCP for a good sale rack either. I have found clothing for me and for the husband priced at $4! I have to buy lots of new clothes because it's like they are making me feel stupid for leaving such a bargain behind.

The real reason the JCP ad caught my eye was that I recognized the model. It was an "America's Next Top Model" winner in the ad. Danielle. I have to say I was surprised as I have never seen one of them in an ad outside of the TV show. The magazines I subscribe to are Cooks Illustrated and National Geographic Travel, so that's probably the real good reason why I haven't seen much of any winner. Not much use for lipstick ads in those.

America's Next Top Model. That's an awful show that I love to watch. I wish they would spend more time on the photo shoots than the pettiness of 20-something girls who have absolutely no life experience. I will watch entire seasons on a Saturday marathon on Oxygen while I am doing chores around the house. It's addictive. I love the clothing, and I love the situations they must pose in. Really, I want to be the person to design the sets. That's an awesome job.

Anyway, back to me and my fabulous new 'do. I hate the itchiness that hair dyes does to my scalp. As I sit here and type, there is a powerful and irresistable irritation clawing at the back of my head. The only consolation is that as I run my fingernails across my head for some relief, my hair feels great and I can be content in knowing my hair is all the same color for the next six weeks.
