Is it everyone, or is it just the mormons? Whenever we get together, say for a barbeque or potluck, twelve different people are assigned to bring a salad. Of course there's green salad, and potato and macaroni. But, in my opinion, if you bring canned pineapple covered in whipped cream and marshmollows, that qualifies as dessert, not salad. It never ceases to amaze me how the mormons will add sugar in one of it's many forms to just about any part of the meal they can. I mean, how many different ambrosia-type salads have you had? I've probably had thirty. No joke. All I'm saying is just because it's got one type of fruit hiding among the mounds of sweets doesn't make it a salad. It's a dessert, people. A dessert.

In the past week all the girls in the office have colored their hair. Granted, there's only three of us, but it seems to be a common among women today. I can literally only think of one girl I know that does not color her hair. It makes me wonder why we feel the need to change our hair. I know there are probably a million reasons. I know why I've done it. Looking back, it's almost always because I was in need for a change. Just a few weeks ago I went blonde, after being a dark brunette all my life. I know I did it with the childish hope that the next day, I'd be skinny, popular and rich. Needless to say, nothing changed. It's not that I'm unhappy with my life, it's just that every now and then everyone needs some excitement. And since I live in a sleepy little town, hair color is a cheap and easy way for me to do that. So, that's one reason I think women color their hair. For a fleeting glimpse of what they wish their life was. Of course, I've been known to overanalyze.
