Holysmokes, airplane, hotel, rockstar, Jethro, two days from now, Holyjeepers

I AM LEAVING IN TWO DAYS.

I HAVE NOT STARTED PACKING.

I AM NOT SURE YET WHAT I AM GOING TO WEAR WHEN WE DO OUR RED CARPET WALK

HANG ON... MY BIGGEST PROBLEM RIGHT NOW IS THAT I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I'LL BE WEARING WHEN WE WALK THE RED CARPET.  

My life is actually kinda  pretty much okay, I guess.

I've known about this little trip for long enough that I should have been able to get it together, but I've been thinking about other stuff.  Other stuff can really take up a lot of brain room.  

I made a packing list.  Well, I started a list.  That counts, right?

I got my hair done... that definitely counts.

Here's the strange thing about me:  I usually get the straight male hairstylist.  And I like it.  

This time around, it was Stavros, and I'm thinking he's a keeper.  Not only did he do an awesome job of layering my thick mess of wavy hair, and sneak some groovy cherry-red highlights in there, but he's also 22, Greek and gorgeous!  He's got those big dark brown eyes, curly hair, a perfect forehead (Yeah I notice everything) and those big pretty lips.  Nice arms too.  Just a lovely young fella.  

I took Jethro's car up to the salon (not saloon) knowing that he'd trade it around for the truck when he had to leave for work.  This is what Jethro told me later, when I phoned him:

"I looked in the window but I didn't see you.  I was thinking of coming in to say hi, but I figured you were having such a nice time looking at Stavros while he had his hands in your hair, you didn't need me pokin' my hairy mug in there and ruining it for ya!"

Jethro is awesome.  

Speaking of which, I think it would be kind of nice if he won a Juno this year.  He's in a category with a few guys he's really looked up to over the years.  Get that - he admired them, and now he's one of them.  There could be 20-year olds who are admiring ol' Jethro right now.

I know I do.

I gotta cut off this incredibly random, rambling, aimless blog post now... I should really wash some dishes before my Mom comes up here to hang with my kids and dog and house.  Also I should do some laundry.  And look at my hair one more time.

Heidi the Hick said...

Sue- I'm feelin' the vibes!

Bid- you are on the list! I love it that you said "when" he wins... you did call it the first time!

JKB- We are leaving Thursday. Man, I don't even know what time, how lame is that?

Kerri said...

Mmmm. Greek.
I can't wait to see the pics of you strutting your stuff down the red carpet. We want lots of pics!!!

Heidi the Hick said...

You shall have pictures!

(HOnestly, he's so cute... and does great haircuts. I might have to have more than one cut per year. Just sayin.)

dilling said...

Good luck Jethro!!!!
See ya soon.

Olly said...

I'll be watching for you both!!! Are you going to make it out the Island?

JKB said...

Holy cow, Thursday like TOMORROW!?

Good luck!

I know I'm thick-help me please. What award, where can I look?

coffeypot said...

That good looking in a salon - he's gay.

Good luck, Jethro. Just being nominated makes you a winner.

Bunny said...

Any chance we can get a peek at your new 'do before you go? (like you don't have enough to do already. . .)
Have a great time!! Can't wait for the report!

Heidi the Hick said...

Mugwump, you're not thick, I just wasn't being specific. Here's the link:

http://juno-awards.ca/nominees-2009/en/36_recording_engineer_of_the_year.html

hint: his real name is not Jethro. And he did not get nominated for a rock record...

Olly, I hope I can get out to the island, because I've kind of always wanted to see it. I really don't know how much time we'll have. We only shop for clothes for the big guy once a year, in other words, when he needs something nice to wear to the Junos!

Heidi the Hick said...

JKb- yeah, TOMORROW!

Coffeypot, he's still cute!

And you're right, my man's already a winner. So true.

Bunny, I was thinking of posting a pic before we leave, so if my suitcase is packed and the camera's charged up, I'll do it, ok?

Doesn't Stavros has a cousin who does pools?
