Last night I complained to Aric that I wasn't really happy with my haircut. I gave myself several days to get used to it, but it just wasn't doing anything for me. Sean did a nice job of styling it, but once I showered, it was hard to replicate the look. It kinda reverted back to my old hairstyle. =/ Glenda said that she noticed, that day, that I wasn't wild about it. Well yeah...I wasn't about to say anything while Sean was doing cartwheels and raving about how great it looked. So anyhow, Aric urged me to call the salon and see if they can do something about it.

Today I called the salon and told the receptionist, and she hooked me up with another appointment and another stylist, free of charge. *sweet!* I was worried that Sean might be there and that I was going to utterly offend him. Luckily it was his day off! *whew* I told the new stylist exactly what I wanted, and at the last minute I decided to add copper and brown highlights. She did a kickass job! I walked away feeling really good. Ashlyn was wonderful. She waited patiently for me for nearly two hours.

so...what do you think?

I spent the afternoon doing a few loads of laundry and playing with Ashlyn. I don't know what the occasion was, but Aric came home from work and took us out to dinner tonight. We had sushi at Taiko. Aric remembers going there a lot during his college years. It was a popular place to go....and still is...for a Thursday night, that place was packed! The wait was an hour long! The Combos are pretty good, sushi's fresh, service is friendly, the restaurant's clean, and the price is reasonable.

Afterwards we met up with Brian and Grace at Tapioca Express for Boba tea, then headed over to Ed and Sue's. Grace, Sue, Ashlyn, and I just watched TV while the guys did some computer stuff. Ashlyn's very popular among all her "aunties" and "uncles". Everyone seems to want a picture with her...even the camera-shy peeps.

Wey: "P.Diddy, I'll come pick you up around 3 or 4pm."
Peg: "Sure..that's fine."
Wey: "Is Ashlyn going to be okay? How's her feeding schedule?"
Peg: "Eh, don't worry, I'll just feed her in the car."
Wey: "What if she poops?"
Peg: "I'll change her in the car."
Wey: "Uh...what if I poop?"
Peg: "Can't help ya there."

VEGAS, BABY, VEGAS! "You're so money and you don't even know it!"
Yep...tomorrow Ashlyn and I are going to Vegas with Wey. We're meeting up with a bunch of other folks to gamble, relax, and party. Aric will be joining us Saturday, after his last final. I feel bad because he's basically driving down for less than a day, and all he's going to do is watch Ashlyn while I party it up. =P
Aric kept assuring me that he doesn't mind. But I feel sorta guilty...*pause*....oh well. *WOO-HOO, partay!* Seriously though, Aric's good to me. I realize my mom is right, I rarely give him credit.

I guess now is a good time to read up on Matty's gambling tips. hehehe I rarely play tables though. I lack the confidence. Whenever I sit at a blackjack table, I turn dumb. Simple arithmetic proves to be a difficult task. I also take too long to decide if I should hit or stay...in fear of jacking up the hand for the rest of the table. I'm more comfortable trying my luck with the One-Armed Bandit or a no-brainer game like Sic-Bo. hehehe But I doubt I'll be gambling this time. Just looking forward to seeing the posse. City of Sin...here I come! =)
