YES.

Two things. First off, I got bangs. I have never before in my life had bangs, so I was very nervous about it. Fortunately, my hairdresser is fab. She's also a great colorist -- I am loving the red (which I got retouched but have had since May).



Second. I love the internets. You can find the coolest, most nostalgic things you thought you'd never be able to find. I don't know why a game about economics was so enticing to my six-year-old self, but for some reason it was.

Lovely hair LF. Although, it's getting in the way of your eyes. Are they green like mine. If so; cool. :)

Ooh, I love the cut and the color! I've been thinking about bangs forever, but am still to chicken to go ahead and get them.

You know, it's about 6:30 in the morning now, and I just read "my six-year-old self" as "my six-year old", and I thought, "TLF has a kid? Wow, that's impressive." (given the workload of a junior attorney).

Sorry 'bout that.

Oh, nice hair. :)

Thanks, guys! Eyes are brown... I always wanted blue eyes when I was younger, but I have learned to love my chocolatey eyes :)

Darlyn, I bet you'd look gorgeous with bangs. Of course, you would look gorgeous in a burlap sack ;)

Linnaeus, that's hilarious. The only kid I have for now is short, black, and covered in fur :)

You're like an After on What Not to Wear. That's a good thing. You should watch. Stacy and Clinton are funny.

Considering it's your first time, those bangs are REALLY LONG. I thought you might ease your way into the bang scene...

Is MULE anything like Oregon Trail? Man, I was obsessed with that game in 1st grade.

Your hair looks great, both cut and color.

I always wanted brown eyes instead of blue-green. I guess the eyes are always browner on the other side of the fence.

Thanks for the compliments! The bangs are not actually as long as they appear in the picture; that's a function of the camera angle. I still look like a professional -- or, at least, like as much of a professional as I did before the bangs ;)

quinn, it is similar to Oregon Trail in that both of them were educational games, but I think it was a little more direct. You can do single player versus the computer or multiple players. Your character is an alien on some kind of planet where, for some reason, mules are the primary source of production. You're given a certain amount of money to start, and you buy a mule or two and then you take the mule(s) to a store of some sort where you choose which of four resources you want your mule to produce. You purchase one, and then you pick a plot of land to settle on (the order in which you get to choose plots depends on a lottery, if I recall correctly). Some plots of land are more conducive to development. After each player has a turn, some period of time passes and environmental factors influence how well your mule performs. Then you go and trade with the other players for resources they have and you need. Yes, I played this when I was six.
