I Got My Hair Did

Seeing as it’s the start of a new year, I went out on a ledge and tried a new hairdresser named Fabu. But unfortunately, it seems Fabu takes styling tips from Flock of Seagulls.

Stick with Bumble & Bumble, Amber and Kayleigh.

    Looks like how mine turned out a couple of days ago. Should have known I was in trouble when I noted the haridresser’s do-black and pale reddish chunks, looked like someone’s taken a weedeater to it. I should’a run. Poor piggie!

  2. Now I’m rethinking my appointment with Fabu.

  3. Cambridge_Rat_Mom says:

    Just wear a hat for a few days until it grows out…

  4. earlybird1 says:

    I love how the guy is wearing two watches. You can never be too punctual…

  5. Well, my first lust for the year, I would very much like to have this piggie to love and nurture and protect from paparazzi….what a beautiful piddie-poo!

  6. My mind grapes tell me you have to get your hair did every week to keep it looking fine.

  7. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    Awww, babeh peeg. I miss mine .

  8. Shooo tiiiiiny!

  9. TrixandSam says:

    That is a look of combined disapproval and embarrassment.


  10. anastasia says:

    this is the new backround for my computer 😀

  11. Fizzgig!

  12. DaytimeDeb says:

    I had a haircut like that once….it grows out little one.

  13. Helpful tip: throw in a few fabric softener strips when you put your piggie in the drier after a bath

  14. Queen of Dork says:

    earlybird1: Hahahahahaha!

  15. resriechan says:

    In re. title for this pic:

    (harsh, aggressive knocking on front door of CO)

    OPEN UP!!! IT’S A RAID!!!

    [You do understand that the Proper Punctuation Police are like the Internal Affairs of the grammar world, right? 😉 – Ed.]

  16. I hope you didn’t give Fabu a big tip. I’m just sayin’.

  17. Queen of Dork says:

    Resrie: Oh noes! Not the Grammar Police! They are a relentless bunch! 🙂
    Piggie-poo in the picture is really cute. I’m loving the extreme inky black color of his beady little eyeball. And I think his hair do is cool! Very just-got-out-of-bed-fashionably kind of a look. I’m sporting that same do myself right now.

  18. kibblenibble says:

    I loves me a messy-haired peeg.

  19. resriechan says:

    @ QoD: well, do tell — how much did you tip the haircutter?

  20. Queen of Dork says:

    Resrie: I didn’t have to tip anybody. I’m just really naturally messy looking when I crawl out of bed in the morning! It’s great! I just get out of bed and have this cool, fashionably scruffy looking thing going on. I even make runs to the corner store in my slipper booties!!

  21. Cambridge_Rat_Mom says:

    I’m thinking it’s not two watches, but the one on the right’s a medical wristband–diabetes or allergy warning, y’know.

  22. resriechan says:

    @ QoD:

    So you’re in the same Fashionable Cool league with, say, Bob Geldoff???

    see the following:

  23. WOW ! I guess that “Bed Head” product line really works !

  24. Whao, she bears a striking resemblance to my guinea pig, Squirt. (;


  25. Queen of Dork says:

    Res: Yeah, kinda like that! Also, check yer personal e-mail, please! 😉

  26. Queen of Dork says:

    Res: Kinda like that but not that sweaty.

  27. Fuzzy man hands and a tiny peeg
    I’m seeing some rule 14 here.

  28. Mew Mew Mew I has cute says:

    Sooo fuzzeh ykwim

  29. muttluver says:

    Resrie: Ha! I love you! I’m a member of the grammar police myself, but this was /intentional/ use of bad grammar, so that makes it aaaallll better. ;D

  30. darkshines says:

    I have a hair appointment the day after tommorow and cannot decide what I want to do. I have three choices:

    1. Carry on the way I have been for the last 6 months (Black, in a Velma Kelly bob).
    2. The same cut but a wildly different colour, like bright red.
    3. The same colour but a wildly different style, like a finger wave, or 1940s bangs….

  31. Queen of Dork says:

    darkshines: Do number 3 and number 2 combined!!!! Sounds pretty! The same cut with a wildly different color. Then you can change your hair but at the same time, keep some aspects familiar.

    Your cyber hair advisor

  32. darkshines says:

    True, true, I’ll see what the stylist says, my hair doesn’t like to stay curly and I would hate to spend a lot of money on something thats going to last a day!

  33. resriechan says:

    @ muttlover:


    (…if ONLY Prongs had included a specific DISCLAIMER sentence ….we wouldn’t’a had to call in, the Authorities …………….I guess Hindsight is 20/20, huh?)

  34. victoreia says:

    (quietly putting the “Grammar Police” badge away….) Right…..intentional use is permissible. (But yes, a disclaimer …… well……)

  35. It’s a feather duster with a guinea peeg face. *buries face in fluff*

  36. resriechan says:

    (I’m so thankful that I’m not the only member of the Establishment. Can I be a member of the Establishment & still be a hippie??? I really *LIKE* my psychedelic tie-dye shirts……………and my PP& M albums– am I still allowed to call them albums or am I only allowed to use the term “CD’s”??)

  37. Shadowtiger says:

    We speak of all of these interesting people who visit us in the night…the Easter Bunneh, the Sandy Claws, the Toof Fairy, etc. But there is one who visits us every night. His name?

    Ralph, the Night Hairdresser.

    He sneaks in while you sleep and does a number on your head. Then you wake up and it looks like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Behold, the awesomeness that is Ralph!

  38. Dreamspinner Cheryl says:

    Resreichan-yea, that would be mine, ‘cept a LOT shorter, and not as sweaty. And every time I get mine cut, the danged hairdressers sneak more white into it! WTF?!!?

  39. …I thought it was a reference to a recent 30 Rock where Tracy’s wife says she just got her hair did….

    Angie: Where were you last week during Tracy Jr.’s birthday party?
    Tracy: There was a better kid’s birthday party up the street!
    Angie: I cannot believe you made me come here for this. Now I won’t have enough time to shop for Christmas presents and still get my hair did.
    Tracy: Your hair did!? You just got your hair did. You have to get your hair did again?!

    😀 Now somebody go and bring me some haaaaam!

  40. RainbowGORETM says:

    SO CUTE!

  41. Queen of Dork says:

    Speaking of hair – I’m sitting here right this minute with this harsh horrible smelling hair removal crap all over my chin and neck to remove my lovely hag hairs. I’m having a grooming fest. Luckily, my Native American roots have had this cool thing where hair really doesn’t grow on my legs so I don’t have to shave them. But I think all of those hairs relocated to my chin and neck. Awwwww. Aging is sooo interesting.

  42. Queen of Dork says:

    Hmmmmmm. Well that was rather interesting. I somehow managed to get a bit of that stuff in my mouth so there was alot of rinsing and spitting going on here. I think the stuff worked although I may have left it on a bit too long as my skin is stinging and burning and I have a feeling I may wake up with some unsightly scabs on my chin in the morning. Oh well. I’ll just chalk it up to a job well done and move on to the next challenge.

  43. TMI from QoD!!!!!!!! 😉

  44. @ resriechan — Grammar disclaimer? Me no understand.

  45. Queen of Dork says:

    Theresa: he-he. my bad.

  46. Soooo.. are the grammar police connected in any way with the phone Police…. Looks over shoulder suspiciously…
    Hides piggie from the grammar, punctuation and Phone Police in Pocket and slinks away!

  47. I really adore that brown colour. 🙂

  48. Honey, you’ve just gotta have them roots done

  49. resriechan says:

    “Here’s the thing”. 😉

    While we CO followers will swallow just about anything cute and agree that it’s adorable….some of us are by career choice Grammar Police, Librariologists,
    and sticks in the mud in terms of composiche & similar areas.

    Or then again — maybe I should indicate that we’ve been spoiled by NTM who often develops his narratives in such way that we get the visual cute but he also includes the “Monty Python uptight British dialogue” (sorry to any non-uptight British CO followers)….

    So if a major-cute picture on CO uses the title “I Got My Hair Did”…….even if we LOVE the avant-garde hairstyle on the GP in the pic….we still feel a twitching in our feet, over the grammatically unfortunate slang …If the same pic and title were released, with the sentence “No actual harm was intended to the grammar in the following storyline; it is only intended as an amusing diversion” ……..those of us who are…a BIT grammatically reactionary ……..would not have felt compelled to contact the Authorities.

    ** Not that I ** myself**, had anything to do with notifying the Authorities,
    you understand. … I’m merely attempting to bring a Mutual Understanding to the Parties Involved.

    I remain, ma’am,

    Your Humble Servant in Cuteness

  50. resriechan says:

    PS also @ Prongs
    (or maybe it was a different Ed who responded to my # 15 ?)

    I must admit that I was “Not Clear on the Concept” intended, by the Ed’s
    comment about the Punctuation Police…I admit that I used numerous exclamation points, which might be unsophisticated in Computerworld ………Were there any other gaffes in my correspondence or did I do something truly offensive?

    Still your Humble Servant in Cuteness

    [You saw the wink, didn’t you? 😉 <– that thing. Anyway, you’d fluffed an apostrophe, while invoking the Grammar Police. – Ed.]

  51. Queen of Dork says:

    I have computer police at my job. They don’t let me play on CO. *pout*

  52. I think it is usually obvious when someone is playing with language and spelling,rather than they have no sense of grammar or composition. I know a lot of my mistakes happen, because I am a two fingered typist and have to look at the keyboard and not see what is appearing on the screen, of course I read it and check it, but until it appears posted, it is surprising what I manage to miss.
    When I post from home using a lap top I find the cursor has a mind of its own, I often look at the screen and see that a sentence I am working on has jumped into the middle of my comment I also have a problem of not hitting the keys hard enough and look up to see that several letters are missing.

  53. Queen of Dork says:

    Hon Glad: Your comments are always a joy to read even if there are mistakes! I myself have this weird obsession of always needing to spell everything right because I was a court reporter for a while and transcripts had to be perfect. This actually bugs me about myself. So one time, me and a friend of mine decided that we would write notes to each other purposely speling evry theeng rong. Itz actauly kynd ov haurd too dew. 🙂

  54. resriechan says:

    @ QoD:

    et maht be hahd, foah **yew** too spa-yul thangs rong, but — foah sum reezon, Ah mahsayulf, ah fahnd it raht eeeeeezzz (tuh spayul thangs rrrong)!!!


  55. Queen of Dork says:

    Rez: Mwauh bak att yu. Butt eye finde thiz prety dificlt. et mackes mee tipe reely slough. 😦

  56. Queen of Dork says:

    Res: PS – Great job, there!! 🙂

  57. resriechan says:


    Yewareso smaht — that’s wha yew fahnd it hahd to type rrong!!!!

  58. Queen of Dork says:

    Rassrykhaann: luveeng thu duble Rs en thu werd, rrong!

  59. resriechan says:


    Aw, shucks, maam. thankyeverrmuch.

    NOT Elvis Presley
    (Could you tell?)

  60. resriechan – When I see your abbreviation of Queen of Dork, I always think
    “Quod erat Demonstrandum ” even though ts QED and not QoD.
    I recall a study where whole sentences were misspelled, as long as the first and last letter of each word was correct and the number of letters between them the right length, it was perfectly understandable.

  61. Queen of Dork says:

    Hon Glad: yeu meen lyke thes?

  62. resriechan says:

    Hi HonGlad! Hope your day is going smoothly.

    I LOVE research. In order to come up with a relevant responding Latin phrase, I just came back from a website & began by browsing under the Q’s…. You’ll NEVER imagine, one phrase that the webpage offers…..Ya won’t NEED to guess it, though, because heretofore (I hope this website’s data is legit…..it could be saying “Go to the bathroom”, for all I know — I took Fr., and bits of Ger & Russian; but never took Latin)

    “Quomodo cogis comas tuas sic videri?” -” How do you get your hair to do that?”

    It’s as though that website knew about CO, knew about the GPig picture
    & knew about this comment stream………………..

    Quote & possible translation per webpage:

  63. Queen of Dork says:

    Hon Glad: Yes, you have awakened Resrie’s Research urges. She really, TRULY is THE RESEARCH KID! She’s helped me before with looking things up! 🙂

  64. darkshines says:

    So I got my hair did too. No pictures yet, but I got this done:

  65. I WISH my highlights could turn out like that.

  66. OMG claim to fame! I work woth the girl who is friends with Amber!!

    That’s ALMOST like getting published myself… right?
