decided to chop my hair off today. not too short but just something short and sassy. i like it and it's especially nice in this weather. decided to pamper myself and get a manicure and pedicure as well. :) the girl who did it was good, which is a nice change. usually they want to cut my toenails off on each side (down into the quick) which causes in-grown toenails, but all i had to do was mention it and she knew. so many of the ppl who do pedicures here don't know what they're doing. i've noticed that if you go to the Ritz or such places, they know how to do it properly.
i know so many here who complain of in-grown toenails. and all one has to do is look down at their feet and you can see why. their toenails are cut and shaped like upside down V's... i think that's the reason. i personally like french pedicures and like my toenails and fingernails to have a square shape... i guess a lot of ppl get accustomed to going to these little *salon in a shop* places that are on every corner where you get girls who really don't know what they're doing... and they've been having their toenails cut like this for years, so they're used to it.
i've tried a few of these places and each time, it's the same. they try to cut my toenails down into the quick and then they wind up globbing this pink liquid on 'em that stains my toe and nail... i guess as a preventative measure to keep you from getting an infection - or that's what i think. why else would they put that crap all over your toes??!!
because i get my hands dirty a lot, i don't bother w/ manicures often. sometimes i'll treat myself if they're looking particularly ugly or dry... and, i'm not one for long fingernails either... but, i must say, they do look really nice today, so i'm glad i did it.
i'm in somewhat of a bad mood. i've thought about going shopping - heard Marina Mall's having a sale on furniture and i want to go to the new Jassim plant store - so maybe that'll lift my spirits. the yard is looking particularly bare and we need some fertilizer for the grass, so who knows... maybe i'll get some new plants (if there are any) and do some gardening in a little while.
we're now having a prob w/ another one of our birds - Oprah. i'll swear.. i starting to think that there are evil eyes in this house or something. stuff just keeps happening!! altho, i try not to let myself think about those things and not believe in it.... i can't help but to wonder though. i'll write more about it later... it's lunch time.
