Hair Cut?

I'm thinking about getting a hair cut and doing something about my hair. I swear it's like I'm a girl or something. =O I haven't had my hair cut in years. I haven't had a hairstyle change in decades. I've just had an all one-length bob. I'd let it grow until I started sitting on it, then get it cut to shoulder length and let it grow again.

Contrary to popular belief, long hair is actually much easier to manage, for me, and short hair is a pain in the ass. I have a lot of hair. I have really thick individual pieces of hair and a high count of follicle/cm² of scalp. I'm a freaking broom.

When it's long (like right now), I don't even comb my hair in the mornings. I just push it out of my face and leave. When it's short, it's nasty. I have to wonder how the hell I slept to make it look like it's trying to be a fro. It sticks out in every single direction possible. So, I have to spend time styling it with two different types of blow dryers, 4 different combs and brushes (tangle comb, fine comb, 2" round brush, 1" round brush), and styling gunk. That's half an hour that I'd rather spend sleeping.

I want a hairstyle that's low maintenance... pardon, I want a hairstyle that's NO maintenance. I've been toying with the idea of layers, but I'm afraid that layers will behave like short hair, only worse because there will be all different lengths. Instead of being a broom, I'll be a pipe cleaner.

Taxes

[mood|okay] 

I finally received my T4 from RS (*sigh* ... took them long enough). So, now, I can finally finish doing my taxes. This will be the first year Bungo and I file as a married couple. I think that just means we get to check the box that says, "Married". I'm so glad I have checkbox checking skills. *roll eyes at ceiling*
