Me, earlier in the evening: “Santa, please. My one Christmas wish. Don’t let That Guy freestyle tonight. That’s all I want.”

Me, later in the evening: “DAMMIT, SANTA!”

Thus far, the new hair has generated the following references:

  • Mary Jane Watson (the most popular and one I really enjoy)
  • Rose from Titanic (only a decade late! I always did say I wanted her hair)
  • Vicky Vale (which amused me, for obvious reasons)
  • And perhaps my favorite, ala Kevin: “Ohmigod, you are totally going for Willow, Buffy Season Two!”

An overall theme, however, is sassiness and spitfire. Which has inspired me. As I said tonight, “I spend far too much time biting my tongue.

“That can’t happen with this hair.”
