*insert snappy subject line here*  
Right, so I'm in a 'screw you' world day today. Not having any money at all for food (and no, I'm not exaggerating - I have no income at all thank you very much GUL for screwing me over one final time and getting the Benefits Agency to suspend my JSA) has left me searching through the house for anything that might be around. I haven't yet gotten to the stage of eating the Xander chocolate bar that I bought in Hamleys in London on the way to my first ever convention (Senior Partners - 2001 was it? 2002? Whatever it was, the chocolate will definitely be out of date...) but what I did find was a box of hair dye. Since I can't eat it I thought - hey, maybe I could use it!

Only thing is, it's from the stage I went through of being a red head. Which is a stage that most of my SPN friends don't actually know at all, since I've been becoming more blonde in that period I've known them (although for the last year it's been all natural baby...)

So, the big question. Should I use the dye? Should I be a red head again?

To be a redhead or not?

I'm trying to keep myself busy (so as not to think about how hungry I am) and am having so much fun with judging fics and vids and things! (Also? am working on something which I am determined to finish this year. So that's a fortnight to finish it. Doable. Since I've got nothing better to do with my time! (And yes, I'm being deliberately vague but I may be asking for advice from thedothatgirl in the near future...)

Right, I'm now going to start downloading the 'series' entries for the Salt & Burn Awards so that I can start judging those as well.

And apply for a crisis loan from the social fund so that I don't end up spending the holiday period in hospital with malnutrition.

*hugs* I was there not too long ago honey, so I know what you're going through. Things'll get better....and until then, why not go red! :D

I think I will do the red head thing - I know they say blondes have more fun, but I've always been more outgoing as a redhead. It's... odd! But then again, it's me so maybe it's not that odd!

I wish I could be there and give you proper hugs and love instead of the internet kind *snuggles* and ♥

And I say go for red-it's a great colour!

*clings tightly*

I might clash with my bedroom wall. I've just thought of that. *g*

There's a definite leaning towards the 'yes' here!

I'm definitely thinking a change is in order - and going red would work I think!

Been a redhead all my life! There is no bad.

The only bad I'm thinking is that I remember it being really difficult to get rid of red once I'd coloured my hair. It seemed to be more permanent that permanent - if that makes sense!

(Hi btw! friended you back!)

Sorry things are so lean right now. :( Speaking as a redhead, we are awesome. You know you want to join that club!

I do remember being so much more outgoing the last time I was a redhead so... I think I'm gonna go for it. After all, it's Sunday tomorrow and the library isn't open, I can hide indoors if I have to!

I'm one of those cautious types who thinks dyeing one's hair during an emotionally difficult time is a bad idea.

I think I'm just getting so tired of not being able to control anything right now that my hair colour is something I could do? Does that make sense?

It makes sense, but I still advise caution. I once dyed my hair black while depressed...

I've sort of always thought of you as red, from the "I'm Willow" days of Yore. Think it suits you. :-)

*Smites GUL and Benefits Agency* Gah! Hateful, vindictive system. What good do they think it's going to do? Agh.

That would be GUL as in Dukat, by the sound of it.
