Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,

Malkovich, with a Twist of Farley

Remember that scene in Being John Malkovich, where John Malkovich is inside John Malkovich's head, and everyone he encounters is John Malkovich, and all anyone can say is, "Malkovich!"?

Remember that?

Some mornings, contemplating a new post for the blog feels just like that.

It's not so awesome.

But at least we got cool photos. Though the post title should also read "with a side of Andy Warhol" to give yourself full credit. :)

And I thought *I* was the only one who felt this way! Malkovich's of the world unite!

okay, everyone who doesn't care about hair, stop reading.

carmen, mostly a good cut. I have a hairdresser who accepts that I will only drag my sorry ass into his chair twice a year.

also, I only wash it every third day, so it stays in pretty good shape because I'm not blow drying it daily.

Days I do wash it, I put volumizing mousse in at the roots, and serum from about halfway down the shaft to the ends. The little lift at the crown yesterday came from a couple of jumbo velcro rollers I rolled backward in damp hair and left in while getting the kids out the door.

Parted my bangs, blew everything outside the rollers dry with a large ceramic round brush, then put the dryer on the rollers a minute before taking them out.

Day 2 I usually pull it in a pony or run a straightening iron through it real quick to get the frizz out.

Day 3 I'll backcomb the crown and twist the whole (by now grungy) mess into a french twist my Mom taught me how to do when I was a teen. Smooth everything over with a boar bristle brush and spray that sucker down with lacquer.

A nice side or zigzag part can really make blah hair looked "dressed."

If you're not really, really sorry you asked by now, I recommend Hair Thursdays at for some fun girly-girl reading.

Bloggers blogging about blogging for fellow bloggers. It happens. Now I know what to call such posts: Malkovich postings.
