photobooth friday

me & annemarie, circa 1999

i think
this photo
must date
back to
1999.
god
that seems
long ago.
i was visiting
my friend
annemarie
in amsterdam.
i am sure
i made her
get into
the photobooth...
i can't
resist
photobooths.
europe
is great
about having
photobooths
everywhere.

it
was what
i term
my
federwisch period.
it was
the
german word
my mom used
to describe
my hair.
it means
feather duster.
mom's have
a way of
finding
the nicest
ways to say things.

i have had
a lot of
strange hairdos.
probably because,
as my less polite
hairdresser
puts it,
i have
a head of cowlicks.

. . . . .

this weekend
my brother
visits from nyc.
we plan to
go to
the
color field
exhibit
and
maybe see
this
while we
are at it.

grub will
make us
his
new favorite
cocktail,
(the lion's tail).

happy weekend!

whenever i picture you in my mind, i always picture the federwisch. i LOVE it! i have broken many a hair clip on my frizzy-ass hair trying to mimick your late-90's look. poor hair clips.

A federwisch period and merry photo booth moments... sounds so exotic and looks so happy.

I have stubborn hair that behaves badly in humidity and rain. It enjoys framing my face with curls as the ends fall into ringlets... oh, the agony of the follicles.

Happy weekend to you, g xx

dying to see that exhibit. must get down there.

(my son has a head of cowlicks, too. luckily, his curly hair creates a distraction!)

Isn't it sad that the nineties were so long ago? I, too have the head full of cowlicks!

Annemarie said...
