this and that

Hmmm this has been a good week. I managed to keep on my running schedule, help organize a joint theatre initiative in Rochester, made some progress at work, got complimented during my martial arts class, and managed to get my mom a gift for Mother’s day. Woo hoo. Of course I’ve totally fallen off contacting friends and I still need to get a birthday present for Jenny. Oh well, I guess I can’t squeeze everything into a week.

This weekend I’ve got lots of stuff going on. On Saturday I’ll be at a martial arts seminar with Francis Fong, one of the best Wing Chun instructors in the US. It’s always great to study with him. Plus we usually get to see a number of old friends from out of town who come in to train. I’m also going to finish evaluating MiniDV cameras. I’ve been wnting to get one for a while and Cindy’s wedding is the perfect excuse. Finally I’ll be cleaning my apartment and catching up on e-mail. I’m also hoping to get out with folks for the first time in a while.

Return of the friday five

1. What shampoo do you use? What ever is on sale at Wegmans. I think it’s Wegman’s brand this week. Once a week I’ll use a good shampoo (usually an Aevida product) to keep my hair in shape.

2. Do you use conditioner? See above. During the winter I’ll occasionally use a tinted conditioner to keep up the red-ish highlights my hair has.

3. When was the last time you got your hair cut? About a month ago. I’ll be going next week for a cut. Right now I’m in a high maintenance hair mode (something my stylist loves). My hair grows rather fast and I’m trying to keep it kinda short.

4. What styling products do you use? A dab of pomade. Not Dapper Dan though. Rather some hemp based stuff I’ve had for years. I didn’t buy it because it was hemp based. Though I do like the idea that my hair is more stoked on a daily basis than I’ve ever been.

5. What’s your worst hair-related experience? Hmmm, probably the haircut I gave myself at the age of 2 or so. My mother often tortures me with those pictures. Oh and the one time I got blond highlights put in. BIG MISTAKE. I don’t think I’ve heard the end of that one from my family yet. Hmmm, all things considered my family probably hasn’t been too good for my self esteem.
