Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Hello ladies! It's Monday again, which means that it's time for Carissa's Miscellany Monday. Click here to join the fun!

{1} My life has been a "hair-raising situation," in the literal sense. I can always remember how ever since I was very, very young, I wanted long hair. So beautiful and flow-y. I even went so far as to put a long skirt on my head (a skirt that was a very bright pink with polka dots), just so I would feel like I had long hair. My sisters and I would ponytail these skirts, and we'd even twist them into buns. :) Until I turned 6. And it was then that I told my mom that I wanted short hair like Kit Kitteridge, the American Girl doll. My loving mother took me to the hair salon that very day, where we got it cut. I was all smiles throughout the chopping off of my much-loved locks, but when it was done... let's just say I wasn't happy. I think I went home in tears, asking my 6-year-old self "why would you want to cut your hair?!" I never really cut my hair after that, only trimmed it now and then, to keep from getting split ends. Until I was 11. And that time, my hair really did satisfy me, and I kept it that way for a year. But eventually, I learned that short hair can hinder your options for styling - really hinder them. So I am growing my hair out, and it will stay that way.

{2} Speaking of hair, I need help. Remember my regency gown? Well, the main reason I am making this gown (besides the fun of sewing) is for an English country dance at my homeschool group. To go with the regency gown, you obviously need a good hairstyle. And for a regency-authentic hairstyle, you need curls. And my hair isn't curly. I have struggled countless times to find ways to curl thick, very straight hair. Any ideas, ladies? If so, please leave a comment. Thanks!

{3} I received Fiddler on the Roof for my birthday, and my siblings and I had never seen it (!!), so we watched it one night. We got about 1/3 through it, so we hadn't really encountered any SAD parts. We go to bed laughing about how funny it is, and singing "Matchmaker, Matchmaker." Note: the house rang with "Matchmaker, Matchmaker" so much in the next few days that even the die-hard fans of it had to eventually call it quits. I even wrote in my journal that it was a very comical movie. Until two nights later. When we actually finished it. That. movie. is. sad. Very, very sad. I highly recommend it for anyone who has not yet seen it, but I also suggest you bring a box of tissues.

{4} I got up early to write this post. And of course it wasn't so that I could be one of the first few to link up. 'Cause that's not true. I love posting so much that I just do it.

{5} I very much dislike math. In those little quizzes and blog parties when the question is "Math or History?" I bet you know I don't answer math. Anyone agree?

{6} Does it ever annoy you when you have a song stuck in your head and you want to sing it, but you don't know the words?

Head on over to lowercase letters and link up! (And also view pictures of sweet baby Sage... or at least that's what I do. :)

8 epistles:

  1. I remember that, Lizzy! You were only SIX when you got your hair cut???

    God bless,

  2. You don't like Math?????????

    But, if you like History, then it's ok. As a fellow History buff--I get it!



  3. I am with you on the math. really don't like it! THanks for your randomness! have a blessed week!


  4. Hahaha... I always go back and forth about my hair. It's really thick, so it doesn't look very good short. I think I like it long better. I'm really hoping I'll be able to get it trimmed and styled soon... right now it's just long and boring. lol! :D Sorry, I don't have any tips for curling thick hair. I've got the same problem. :/ Let me know if you get any ideas!

    Hope you're having a great Monday, Lizzy!!

    Have you tried a curling iron or foam rollers yet? And with math Im right there with you. And i hate it when those kinds of songs get stuck in your head... : )

  6. Lizzy,
    I just became a follower of your blog! I just love Jane Austen's novels! I saw you haven't read Persuasion or Mansfield Park. I really liked them, and I figure you would, too.
    your sister in Christ,
    Liz Darcy

  7. I have waist length hair, and while my hair curls okay, my sisters are poker straight ... We have always used hot sticks, and then finish with a curling iron... You could also do rag curls if that doesn't work...
    Next week I'll be starting some hair combing tutorials, and while we seldom do solid curls, we do end up curling the rest of the hair after the braid... so come on over and check it out if you like.
    -Also, if you decide on rag curls, make sure you try them out before the big night to make sure they are what you have in mind ;)

    -Take Care!

  8. lol, does it ever annoy you when you have a song stuck in your head and you know the words, but you're such a bad singer singing it out loud would wreck it? :P :D
    And I just got done with a 2 1/2 hour calculus test.. tell me about math! :P :P :P :)
