And the Winner Is: I Have No Idea

Well, I can safely say that I kicked all sorts of acoustic ass.

I took the stage with no fear and minimal Jim Beam (relatively speaking, of course) and sang my heart out. Trouble is, they didn't announce who was moving to the next round, so while I'm 99.98% sure I'm advancing, I can't say for sure.

Behold: the shortest video ever and ... it's sideways.

No matter. The important part is that I did it and that Lorelai made out with a hot (HOT!) soldier boy.

I'm all for supporting our troops, if you know what I'm sayin'. And shame on you if you don't.

Thank you to all of you who came out (JennyJenny in da house!) and those of you who wanted to be thereā€”it means a lot, it really does. I don't know where I'm going with this music business, but everything in me says I need to take steps forward, so onward ho! (How apropos.)

In other news, I got my hair did.

I've been kicking around the idea of going shorter for some time, so I walked into a salon Saturday morning and found Annakin (for reals), my very gay, Hong-Kong-ese shear prince.

"Oooooooh. I'm going to give you something fun," he said in his very sing-song voice. It is, indeed, fun. Kicky, if you will. Will you?

But now, I am tired. So, please to enjoy these exquisite photos of my new hair while I go to sleepies. I had to get all "MySpace" photo tactical maneuvers on yins--pardon me for looking like every other angsty 17-year old. 'Cept I have better hair.

I'd hate to have to kick your ass. Doesn't mean I won't do it, though.

Why yes, I did, in fact, try to make my hair match the walls. I gave up long ago on the curtains matching the drapes, though.

The angle of my dangle. Just want ya'll to know, that's a portrait of a bare-breasted woman behind me. I incorporate boobs in every facet of my life: writing, cooking, decorating, etc., etc. ad nauseum.

Don't make me come in there, what with me wearing a clip and all.

In the Comments section, tell what you're moving forward with and also what you think of my new hair.

    I love the new hair but do you always look so mean while wearing a clip?

    I admire you so much for having the discipline to learn the guitar and the courage to sing on stage. So inspiring. And your hair, so kicky.

    That is seriously the shortest video ever. I was like, WTF?! Good hair though!

    Awww, if only I were local, I would have been there. Your hair looks adorable. la-uv it!

    As to the filming, I can name that tune in 1 note. Nah, I can't.

    What am I working towards? Getting on a survey panel with with the state, my certification, creating better demands for better settlements, watching my kids enjoying their childhood, even though its getting harder, cause-like they are all preteen and becoming a JP (justice of the peace). You know, going forward in life.

    You are so hot. Love the new look. Gays know hair.

    Valerie, that is some great looking hair. Please post more singing. Thank you.

    Es El, I tried looking like a bad ass wearing a toboggan, but the effect wasn't the same, so I went for smaller head accessories.

    Lorelai, love, don't you worry--I think it gives it pizazz.

    Rebecca, thank you darling. A fair amount of credit goes to whiskey.

    WendyB, I like to leave ya'll wanting more. Did it work?

    KEK--good to see you, dude! Still the same old selfish drivel over here, but with 40% more hair photos. And you're right--I did mean Soulja Boy. Just goes to show how not cool I am .

    PAD,, I'm sorry I'm such a dumbass and can'te tell which blog I've posted to. Yerp.

    Pool, I can't wait to meet you someday--I'll do a repeat performance. And, seriously, I love Name That Tune. That's where Kathie Lee Gifford got her start.

    Krok, you get a big bunch of Yes! on all accounts. Thanks dude, and yes--support our troops, especially by making out with them. One of the many reasons why Lorelai is awesome.

    Nina, thank you so much. Here, doll, I do new songs every Monday or when the mood strikes: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=271288630
