I've heard a lot about the Friday Five lately, and have wanted to participate for a while, but it seems that every friday, I forget. It feels wrong to do it at another time during the week, so I've yet to answer a single friday five question. Today, however, it occured to me, from no where, that it is, in fact, the day for it. So here first ever Friday Five answers.

1. What shampoo do you use?
My mother is all about buying things from stores that are being given away free after rebate. She does this's like it gives her life value. Oftentimes, this results in having high-quality hair products in the house for a short period of time, but never the same kind, I'm always having to change- our family are like hair-care nomads. If there are no special rebate shampoos in the house, she's probably bought V05. My favorite kind, however, is Herbal Essences or Pantene.

2. Do you use conditioner? What kind?
I use conditioner every time, and probably on more parts of my body than most people. Once again, however, it's whatever is in the house. Still, my favorites are Herbal Essences and Pantene.

3. When was the last time you got your hair cut?
Jenn cut my hair....several weeks before the prom. Not a major change, a few inches, but she also dyed it and curled it- it looked great the next day. I told her I'd let her cut it really short after the prom, but I'm holding out on that- at the suggestion of Mr. Leighton, actually, I've decided to grow it out really long. I think I'd look great with hair a few inches past my shoulders.

4. What styling products do you use?
Mousse when it's really, really misbehaving, or when I want to do something special with it, or if I'm bored....sometimes I'll just sit their and style my hair for hours for entertainment purposes...god, I hate being a girl. In general, though, nothing- I make enough of my own natural grease.

5. What's your worst hair-related experience?
Once, when I was headbanging "Flagpole Sitta", a large wisp of my hair flew into my open mouth, found it's way to my throat, and made me throw up a little into my hand. Aside from that, though, the summer before fifth grade I made the mistake of cutting it really short. I had just seen true lies and I told the stylist I wanted it to look like Jamie Lee Curtis. People mistook me for a boy sooooo many times that year- it was traumatizing. And it's never stayed really straight since.

Hmmmm...I wonder if the questions are normally more interesting than that...either way, perhaps if I encourage Dysphorenans to answer them, that place will pick up a little.

On with it.
