June 2020

Before I begin my newsletter, I just want to say a few words of support for the protesters and to offer my heartfelt condolences to the family of George Floyd and to all those who have been racially targeted by the police and society. Throughout history and in countless ways I will never experience, you've been innocent victims, brutalized by racism. I stand with you. Listening. Praying for change.
Are hats your friend? I cut my own bangs with the big scissors I use for gardening. One too many times it caught up in my eyes while I was planting, and that was it. God, it’s refreshing to feel like I’ve I had a haircut, but when I look in the mirror, I’m reminded why it wasn’t a grand idea. My roots are screaming at me too. The entire look is just bad.

Why aren't hairdressers essential workers? Send that petition my way. I’ll sign it in a hot minute. Hairstylists not only do your hair, but they listen to your problems... mine, every six weeks. Can you imagine all the emotional catch-up our stylists will have to go through? On top of everything else they’ve been dealing with, they gotta pick up the pieces of our fragile lives and put us back together while we process.

The end is in sight, though! She’s booking again! In the meantime, I’m trying not to make eye contact with anyone. Strangers probably think its covid anxiety, and while that’s partially true, I’m mostly just flat embarrassed about the way I look. Ponytail holders and dry shampoo are good friends. Why bother washing, when it’ll look like crap anyway. I can personally recommend a wonderful smelling, soft drying—dry shampoo by Amika. Love this stuff.

Onto this month's giveaway front…. Drum roll, please………

We all need a little espionage in our lives to make us feel slick-witted and sleuth-y Good luck everyone!

More Cracker Recommendations!

Okay. Listen up. Stall the ball. I have the most entertaining series to recommend. I laughed my ass off watching the Derry Girls on Netflix. I’m dying. Please send me a note and tell me how much you love it, too. If you haven’t seen it, let me tell you, if you need an eye-opening laugh, this series is for you. The only bad thing about it is that there are only 12 short episodes! I want to cry that there’s no more to watch of this!  

The series is set in Northern Ireland in the town of Derry (or Londonderry) in the 1990’s, but was only recently made. So it’s fresh, but a throwback on that extraordinary time of conflict in Northern Ireland where the IRA was making everyone’s life crazy. The poor critters. It’s a hilarious coming of age story, for a pack of Derry high school girls and their families in this wee town. The accents and dialect are super thick but hang in there! It’s cracker! You’ll eventually get the drift, and the jokes, and understand it. Stop yer moaning now and wise up. There’s a bit of cussing in this show, but catch yourself on. It’s part of the fun.

Erin:  “No, Orla. Leave. Then shut the door.”

Until next month then, stay safe.
All my love,
