Orange you glad I took a picture of my interview hair?

I'm back from my job interview. I got there at 10 after 10:00, because my interview was supposed to start at 10:30 and I am a freak, and I didn't leave there until after 12:30, so that's a good sign, right?

On the other hand, perhaps they were just being nice to me because my hair was redunk-a-donk-u-lonk-alous. Maybe they were keeping me in the glassed-in conference room long enough so simply everyone could walk by and look at me.

Dumbhair

A) Why is it orange?

B) Nice dry ends. The Mojave called, wants to know why my locks are so arid.

C) I thought I used the root touch-up stick, the one you all insisted was a vibrator in yesterday's photo. You bunch of pervs. And yet, hello, Earl Grey.

I am telling you right now. If I get this job, I am changing the hair color from anything other than orange and gray, and I am getting that Brazilian straightening treatment. Because more chemicals ought to add a lot of moisture to my hair.

Also, I did not go naked to the interview. I waited till the last possible second to put on my jacket and pants, so as few pet hairs as possible would be on me when I got there. However, it is a hip cool place, where I interviewed, and one of the people I talked to had on a Hello Kitty tank top, so I think I won't have to worry about looking all corporate.

Also also too, there is a Donkey Kong machine in the breakroom. Enough said.

OH! And the other thing. There was some stuff up on the wall in the room where they interviewed me? And I found an error. In like two seconds I found an error, then pointed it out to everyone as soon as they walked in to meet me. Do you think that was obnoxious?

Cause I kind of hearted myself for finding said error.

Okay, I must go because they have now sent me a proofreading test, which I took in 2007, but I have to take again. Perhaps it will all come back to me, but there's been a lot of Topamax under this bridge so you never know.

And by the way, no one said, "Nice shoes." Not one person! I kept jiggling my feet so they'd look, but to no avail. Now they probably just think I had to pee.

Okay, bye. Off to take a test. With my orange dehydrated hair. My hair is Tang.

  1. I’m pretty sure vibrators don’t color hair June. At least, that’s what my good friend Google says.

  2. I suspect to these folks that nice shoes are flip flops. Oh, and I read the first short story in the school literary magazine today, and the kid used Sudoku’s as the plural of Sudoku. Ruh-roh. Call June on this one.

  3. Well, I think you look pretty.
    I’m sporting an orange and gray do myself today. I won’t be tomorrow. I didn’t have an interview today, but I did HAVE to go to the new Anthropologie store (wheeeee!) and to the fish store after to buy a new algae eater for the frogs. They wore the last one out.
    Oh! And Target (Hi, Steve!) to purchase all new makeup because my eyes kept getting all pink again.
    I hope you get the job so you can be as busy as me.

  6. Going naked may have helped, you know. And I don’t think your hair looked bad at all! But my sister did dye her hair orange like three times while trying to be more brunette, so my standard is pretty low.

  8. Hi everybody! I’ve been away, but now I’m back. And I’ve missed you all so much. I’m not sure what’s happening. I’m going to have to go back and reread, but I’m assuming this is the salon interview?
    Will you be getting the other kind of Brazilian, too? Because, I’m just dying to know the inside scoop from someone who’s been there and done that.
    I sure like your necklace.
    Did I say how happy I was to be back?
    And Furry, Anthropologie?
    How I love that store. In fact, my daughter’s got an interview there next week. That will be sweet, if she lands that one.

  9. That’s what you get for trying to color your roots with a vibrator. We’re not falling for the old, “really, it’s HAIR COLOR” ploy.
    Whenever I touch up my “Hints From Heloise” white roots, I always find a big white patch that either laughed at the dye or I completely missed. But at least I use Miss Clairol root touch up and not something from the Adam & Eve catalog.
    The only reason I can think of as to why those people didn’t notice and/or comment on your awesome red shoes is because they were overwhelmed by your proofreading brilliance. That or they’re Philistines.

    you SO have the job! The super long interview is definitely a great sign. And if they keep bringing more and more people in, even better. We suffer the same hair affliction: whenever I have an interview or client meeting or something where I really need to look all polished and fab, my hair MOCKS me. Mocks me, I tell you.

    Joann, we have missed you too.
    And I know how much you love, love, love all the unsolicited advice but here goes: Don’t straighten your hair. Love your beautiful, wild, free to be you and me curly locks. Anyone can have straight hair, but it takes a real fabulous personality to rock the curls.

  13. I am also orange and gray today, but won’t be tomorrow! In fact I decided I want to be darker, so I don’t know that I will be orange at all when they finish.
    You are a shoe in, red or otherwise, since or because, you were there for two hours.
    When I interviewed job candidates, I didn’t waste time on the applicants that weren’t a good fit. But the prospects that had the qualifications and the personality to meet the job specifications were given the consideration needed. Two hours is great!

    What ever did happen with the salon job?
    I think the two hour long interview is a good sign. Do you think they have the error in the interview room purposely as sort of a quick fire test? If so, you so passed.

  19. My hairdresser got said Brazilian hair treatment and her hair is beautiful. She has curly-ish, frizzy hair that is very dry, and her hair is so nice and straight and shiny now. Seriously. It looks amazing and moisturized. And she can still wear it curly – she said that the curls are just much more defined and pretty instead of a frizzled mess, so it actually improves them. I’m so jealous, and want it sooo badly, but don’t have $300 right now to get it. I understand your pain because I also have hair that behaves badly, especially when I need it to be nice. Anyway just thought I would throw in my two cents about how great the treatment is. And it only lasts 3-4 months, so if you hate it then your hair will be back to “normal” before you know it. 🙂

  20. Never ever make screwdrivers (the drink) with tang. It was clumpy. Maybe the tang was old.
    But if the Astronauts drink it, it must be good. And if that isn’t all spacey, then I’m kinda moony that you are going to have a new job. Being unemployed is sooooooo… overrated.
