Thursday's Thoughts....

1. Update on the knee.... I went to the orthopedic specialist today who took Xrays and examined my cute little patella -- and he is of the feeling that I've got a torn lateral meniscus. Sigh. Fortunately, while I wasn't able to get in for an MRI today, I was able to get in for one tomorrow. I've never had one before, and I don't get claustrophobic or anything -- so how bad can it be, right? Hopefully I'll have better insight as to whether or not I'll need to have that fun little orthoscopic surgery as he mentioned today. Anyone out there in the blogosphere have that kind of a surgery recently? Do tell and share your experiences -- this girl would love to hear it.

2. I never seem to get what I want with my hair. It's so frustrating. I don't like my hair cut at all. Not even a little. She talked me out of cutting it as short as I wanted, and added a bunch of layers instead. Ah yes, now I remember why I haven't layered my hair in like ten years -- I don't like it layered at all. As a matter of fact, I hate it layered. And the highlights aren't as light as I wanted them to be. She added a toner that makes me feel as if my hair is darker than it was when I first started. I know it will fade and lighten - but seriously, $185 later - I should love what I've got, right? Plus, my bangs which look fabulous I have to say -- are wider than I want them to be. I don't like wide bangs, and yet....there I have them. (Insert a big ol' F-bomb HERE.)

3. So can't wait to go to NYC! And I am not letting this knee issue get in the way. Not even a little bit. Sure I'm going to be sore but I am not going to let that stop me from sightseeing! After the play (speaking of Jeremy Piven - the last episode of "Entourage" was fantastic wasn't it! But I digress...) we made dinner reservations at
Phillipes where I hear the duck is "to die for". While our dinner reservations are relatively late, I'm really looking forward to being there a bit early and going to the bar. Their Lychee Martini looks fabulous! Seriously, how often do you get to be decadent? Speaking of which -- the hotel we're staying at this time looks beautiful, has an outstanding reputation and best of all -- it was a sweet deal via Hotwire!

Does it get much better than that???

If I were you, I'd go back to your hairdresser and have your highlights fixed. After spending $185 I'd want perfect hair!

Have fun in NYC!

Torn meniscus? Isn't that the same injury Tek had in 2006? (Sorry, that's all the info I have to offer on that subject.)

I hate bad haircuts & the way my hair is, it's much too easy to end up with one. I am so picky about where I go now. It doesn't have to be high-priced, but a stylist either "gets" my hair or they don't. The one I have now understands what to do with my hair, which makes her worth the slightly higher price and the hour & fifteen minute drive every 7 weeks.

That's right, he did....! ;)
Hmmm. Maybe he should get in touch with me and share some recovery tips? (wink, wink).
