I promised I would post pictures of my conehead. Well, here you go. To make your own conehead, you must have a leetle bit of length with your hair. I do have length, but I have a lot of layers, so I do a lot of bobby pinning. Tip your head upside down and place a plastic cup in the middle of your crown. Wrap your hair around the cup and secure in place with an elastic band. Put loose hairs into place with bobby pins. Beautimous.
Incidentally, this is what I look like (well, not the hair and well, today was Friday casual day where we wear our school shirts. Look, this is what my FACE looks like) on most mornings: fresh make-up, bright-focused eyes, alert (though coffee-induced) and ready to go to work. This is what I look like when I get home: The sunglasses help me get through the afternoon. The cup came out at precisely 3pm. I'm pooped. I'm glad tonight is the women's retreat and I'm glad. I'm about to go (after the neurotic lady folds the laundry) and chill for the rest of the afternoon.
I think I'll make some coffee first.
Oh, I've been asked why we don't have parties at school. I just don't think they call them "parties" anymore. I think you can "bring in cupcakes" for your kid's birthday or "do an educational activity" for a holiday. I "helped the children make caramel apples". Yeah. Don't really know. Maybe there were too many parties. I like how we "redefine" stuff so that it "fits someone else's definition".
