Long hair again,so I can see? or off to get it cut? I cannot figure it out.

I have no idea who is knocking on this door all the time, but I have noticed. so I guess all I can say is hello, and I hope a good day. for all of us.

Wear a hair band while you're working, until it gets long enough to behave tucked behind your ears...? Or a hat maybe? Decisions decisions..

Very Andy Warhol! Now what would he do in this situation??? ;-)

swamprose says:

well, dhamaka, it was the photo of you taking photos with your hair tied out of the way that gave me the idea. all your fault...and sometime we will both stand in the same place and YOU do a good photo out of it, I dare you.

what's the vote here? is it guys who like long hair, women who prefer short?

Viv says:

It wasn't D's photo - I know theres not much face but it was definitely Mrs540air on a mission!
Hey a HL well done

21st Oct 2006, 02:47

swamprose says:

this is a hl? news to me.
hunh?
a duo?
just going off for my first date in six years. maybe I'm on a roll. if I do have a hl, thanks.

21st Oct 2006, 02:54

swamprose says:

well, who ever figures out HL, let me know.
again, thanks.

so, long hair or short?

Jigalong says:

Being a bloke, I'm really not that fussy what the length of a womans hair is.

EVILMINK269 says:

Great hi-lite and a bit of advice coming from some one with long hair a hair band to push back the bangs :)

paintist says:

try it long for the winter, cut it in spring.....hey hope that the date goes well....wtg swamprose :-)

Dhamaka says:

yay for HLs and yay for dates!

If you mean the last one it was in fact Mrs540Air, but I live with my hair tied back - not because it gets in my eyes, because it's long enough to behave itself and sit behind my shoulders most of the time, but because it gets in such terrible tangles if I leave it loose for any length (hehe) of time

swamprose says:

morning p. going to let the hair grow long and push it back. and no more guys with big egos and no sense of humour.

21st Oct 2006, 08:26

Dhamaka says:

oh :(
you may well have just eliminated 45% of the human race there :(

Euphro says:

Use photoshop, of course, while enlarging their eyes at the same time and lengthening their necks by two inches :D

21st Oct 2006, 08:30

Sprocket says:

Yay for long hair

Boo to guys with big egos and no sense of humour

Twiglet says:

Great pics Rose, you're the HL queen!

21st Oct 2006, 09:03

swamprose says:

Euphro, that is so good. Am having my neck lengthed right now.

And D, rofl.

Jigalong, the best jokes about being a guy were the ones told to me in Oz.

What does an Australian guy use for a contraceptive?
His personality.

What's the difference between an Australian man and yoghurt?
Yoghurt matures.

*bursts into laughter*

What's the Aussie male's idea of foreplay?
"Hey love, are you awake?"

I seem to have a slightly different problem - hair in my eyes is accepted normality by now but I tend to get ginger blurs in front of the camera lens!

Gael says:

lovely : )

*roll about on the floor laughing* Our poor Aussie blokes, they are a simple lot...

Swamprose, good on ya for giving the dating a go again- I gave up years ago (see comment above!) but others seem to find miracles. No reason why that can't be you too.

As for the hair... what do YOU like??? A woman who pleases herself can at least be sure to have made one person happy!

FilbertFox says:

well you look mighty fine in this pic my dear

21st Oct 2006, 14:42

swamprose says:

my apologies to mrs540air, whose photo indeed was the one I referred to.

nige, I think I have had this honking big camera for about a month. and feel put to shame by the brilliant 780i shots I see.

21st Oct 2006, 16:32

Viv says:

hope you have/had fun!

MaggieD says:

I loved that pic at the beginning of your blog ... you have such striking features and a lovely firm jaw .... the style you have there suits you very well ..... a framing of the face style .... I have long white, grey, blonde hair that I just tie back (mainly because my job dictates .... working with blow torches etc) .... and I don't like the hassle of hairdressers .... and I have nothing to be vain about visually .... so on balance, I go with the short hair ...phew! ....

21st Oct 2006, 20:26

MaggieD says:

Oh yes congrats on the highlights (not a hairdressing pun) .....

21st Oct 2006, 20:27

swamprose says:

thanks maggie d. You remind me of myself, same cookie mould. We also share a healthy suspicion of hairdressers, and a practical bent. Getting me to cut my hair was a production carefully engineered by friends. If I grow it long again, I will have some people on my case. good people.

swamprose says:

so who are the 229 hits on this photo?
step up and declare yourselves, lurkers. take heart, no one is going to be mean here.

21st Oct 2006, 23:21

Dhamaka says:

231 now..

21st Oct 2006, 23:27

Euphro says:

I keep coming back to read the comments :) I don't consider myself a lurker as I've commented already :D

21st Oct 2006, 23:50

Jigalong says:

I keep coming back to see if there are any more jokes.

22nd Oct 2006, 00:32

factotum says:

Me too, coming back for the jokes...and hoping for practical advice about the hair blowing in front of the lens...

22nd Oct 2006, 01:03

Viv says:

yeah we just keep looking at the updates!

silar31 says:

If you can handle getting through the stage where it's too long to be easy to tame and too short to put up, long hair really does get back to being easy....couple of braids or a bun on the back and tada, you're done. Two braids is my default "day off" position (often with a baseball cap) and I wear it up for work.

bronxelf says:

I just put mine in a ponytail, but my hair is long enough to be able to get out of my way pretty easily.

22nd Oct 2006, 10:30

bronxelf says:

Oh, and I want to hear about this date. :)

22nd Oct 2006, 10:31

540air says:

I'd go with long hair for sure, but then I am rather biased :)

22nd Oct 2006, 23:08

swamprose says:

an end to this. last time I post anything ressembling me. no, dating is just wrong. Long hair is winning the debate. only possible posting worth looking at would be any jokes about Aussie men--hear that Jigalong?

23rd Oct 2006, 00:35

OJ says:

I can't answer your question because my hair has been short for about a decade. I can't remember if cameras had been invented when I was still goldilocks. Perhaps men don't like it. Who knows?

Lovely cheeky shot Swamprose - the peek of blue eye is lovely and balances nicely with that great ring.

Caine says:

Love this! Um, keep a hair band in your pocket. Congrats on the HL! :D

Jigalong says:

An Englishman wanted to transform himself into an Irishman, so he visited a doctor to find out how he could achieve this. "Well" said the doctor, "this is a very delicate operation and there is a lot that can go wrong, but I will need to remove half your brain". "Yeah, that's OK" said the Englishman. "All my life I've wanted to be Irish so I'm prepared to take the risk."
The operation went ahead and sometime later the Englishman awoke to find a look of horror on the face of the doctor. "I'm terribly sorry!" the doctor said. "Instead of removing half the brain, I've taken the whole brain out." The patient replied, "No worries, mate!!"
