I hated hanging clothes on the line when I was a child. It was work
. When the clothes went in the dryer, no work for the children. We only hung the clothes outside in the summers when we stayed at my great-grandmother's house in Montauk, because she didn't have a dryer. She was a very elderly lady and didn't see the point of a dryer when you could hang stuff outside. And she was right of course, but I didn't see it that way as a kid. So when we were out there, a family of six, there was a lot of laundry, as you can imagine, and we hung it all on the line outside. The only good part about a string of wet days at the beach was that my mom would end up taking the wet laundry to the laundromat to dry. I liked the smell of the line-dried laundry, but I hated the stiffness.
Anyway, don't know what I'm doing today. Just got up a little while ago.
Didn't get to bed until after one last night, so I was tired. I needed that eleven hours of sleep. I loved
Dead Man's Chest, the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Dunno what's the problem with all those reviewers. OK, it was a little long, and a little silly, but otherwise it was a perfect summer movie. And I got my hair done, which looks great. Very natural, you'd never know this wasn't natural highlighting. Of course, my hair does
highlight naturally, which helps. It's a lot harder to make someone with black hair look like a naturally highlighted blonde than to do it to me. In fact, I think it's impossible. But anyway...I had a great time hanging out at the new salon. It took forever to do my hair, though. Seems like every time I go, it takes longer. I got there at two, and didn't get out until a quarter to six. Of course Wolf was a little late, and we had a fuse blow, but still, it took forever. And Gary showed up at the end and I think Wolf was showing off for him a bit.
