my roots

Bad news: my great-grandma just died, which sucks.

I had a hair appointment this weekend and
those are super hard to reschedule.


Why me?

Make sure you bring your own Cafe Rio 1/8th of a salad to the funeral luncheon b/c everything they serve there will be lard-loaded.

(But can I have your helpings? Funeral potatoes sounds SO good! Wish I had a really old great-grandma . . .)

Meagan said...

You are totes in my prayers. Hopefully your hairdresser will humble herself and let you move up your appointment. It is important to look super sassy at the funeral.

Emma said...

My heart bleeds for you!

Sprry about your great grandma, :( I'm sure your grandparents can work around your schedule, TAMN. Make sure to bring it up when you and all of your siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, great aunts, great uncles, cousins, second cousins, and second cousins once removed and their spouses get together to plan the services.

Oh TAMN, I'm so sorry! Your hair will be OK as long as you don't have to wait more than a week for a rescedgle. To bad about your great-grandma. Also, thanx for that little sidebar ad for pillowties. My snugglemuffin is going to look good and be more better rested too. (For Christmas I mean)

TAMN, don't you know that a death in the family entitles you to special treatment? Your hair person will HAVE to fit you in on Friday; it's the only decent thing to do. You can't go to the funeral looking skaggy, now can you?

kris said...

BAAAAAAAAAA! This post made me snort with laughter and surprise. I did NOT see the "that sucks because I had a hair appointment" thing coming and it really made me laugh.

All too realistic. I know more than one person who has bemoaned the inconvenient timing of tragedy. Bravo as usual!

Frau said...

My stylist is always snotty whenever I call to cancel. She yells about how I need to call her more than fifteen minutes after or whatever. Hello? Does she not realize that being at work without clients is rest time? I know I liked it when I worked at A&F.

She's a step up from the last one. The last one told me she wasn't going to cut my hair anymore because blah, blah something about a tip and how she doesn't want to work for $10 an hour . What is up with that? It's almost as if she's working for the money - hello worldly! I don't see why people think they deserve more than minimum wage when it's not like I ever made that much. Why do they think they're worth more than me with their "experience" and "training" and "education?"

Oh, and your poll should say, "All boy" and "Girly Girl" not "Total girl." I'm not judging you, I'm just saying that based on that little detail you probably aren't a reasonable person.

TAMN how old are you again? Sounds like you, your mom, your grandma, and your great-grandma all got married and started having babies when you were really, really young... but of course you did.

FootPrints said...

I am so so sorry for your loss! peace and comfort to your family!

Rebecca said...

Cold hearted!

debbie said...

Too bad about it bein' your grate granma. If it was JJWT's, you wouldn't really haf to go. So sorry for your loss. But how nice to get together with the fam so they could see your cute/sassy baby bump (Is it big enough to see yet?) covered with your tight yet modest Christmas sweater. Most preggos look sooo frumpy and you can show EVERYONE that a body can be HAWT and preggo. You are giving service just by showing up.

EmiG said...

I just love the double meaning of "roots" in the post title. TAMN, you rock my world!

Anna said...

Best post yet.

Anita Cramer Wells said...

love the hair roots/family roots connection--way deep.

Ding Dong said...

i love the double meening of the title

Ian said...

The "you've crossed the line" comments are my favorite.

Cheryl said...

I applaud the double meaning ay kay ay play on words with the title. Brilliant!

Sarah said...

Could someone PUH-LEASE let me know what P said? It's not bean nosy, it's bean {EnFoRmEd}!!! Sorry about you ggma TAMN. The only one of mine I remember died when I was 8 - the frumps in my family wait til their outta they're teens to start pushing out the babbies - BOARING!!! I think you should ask you're hair girl about a BeReAfMeNt special. If you can't remember that big word just tell her yore going to a frowny-frump funeral - maybe yule get free hilites!!!

McKinley said...

TAMNs what a burden... can't they just reschedule his funeral? I mean it isn't that hard, besides you need to be the hottest one there so it absolutely has to be after your appt.

Little Lovables said...

you could do her hair and make-up and make her all gorgeous and get your hair did at the same time.

Brooke said...

Can I have the link for the post that inspired this?!!!

Taffy and Tony said...

TAMN, have you been studying?! I didn't find a single unspelled word in that post!

Kami said...

Wow, that's one I haven't heard before. If I were drinking chocolate milk, it would be coming out my nose.

*i love you*

The Weed said...

I'm so incredibly sorry for the loss of your hair appointment. AND YOUR DIGNITY AS A HUMAN BEING.

On a lighter note, I'm very relieved you didn't mention your bodacious sexiness in this post... it helps me a lot. As a married man, it's hard to find entertainment that isn't filled with sex and stuff. The strait and narrow is a rough gig, okay? I'm glad you took my earlier suggestion of propriety. It actually means a lot to know I have that kind of righteous influence.

Mary Ludwig said...

There is only one thing worse than going to a funeral when you were expecting to be at a hair appointment! And that is going when your roots are showing! How embarrassing!

Renny said...

1. I hate Lady Gaga like I hate Glee. I can't believe I come to this blog when you continuously play that crap.
2. I also don't like funeral potatoes. Maybe its because I didn't grow up in Utah. I'm probably going to hell.
3. I live in Vermont. There are no hair dressers here. I haven't gotten a hair cut since June. Soo hott.
4. Um, I don't really know what I would post on my blog after my great grandma died. I mean, not this... but the last time a great grandma of mine died I was like seven or something and hadn't seen her since I was nine months old. I was mostly sad for my dad, who was sad about his grandma. Besides, we've got the plan so we went to the temple and performed all of her ordinances.
5. Maybe I can't emotionally connect with this post because I don't really have any friends that blog like this. It is unbelievable to me that people like this ACTUALLY exist.
6. I really REALLY hate Lady Gaga. And Glee. And funeral potatoes. And Twilight.

Stephanie said...

Milk the death for all it's worth. I'm not completely heartless, but if you have a tragedy you should at least get something out of it.

tharker said...

Oh, Renny...so sad that you actually think this blog is real. Read on my friend, then you'll get it...and you'll think it's funny...and you'll stop wagging your finger.

Did we go to Rio this week together? I could swear that you are a former BFF of mine! Creepy.

moonrat said...

this post: even grater than usual post's.

SAHM: Surviving Assorted Home Mayhem said...

Oh my....
and the title "my roots" is priceless.

debbie said...

@Renny
Sooo sad for you. #1-5 are all bad, but #3 is TeRriblE!!! Seriously sad :(

Elizabeth Downie said...

Haha, love the double meaning of "roots." But when you post things like this, it makes me think you've seen something like this actually happen, which scares me!

Stephanie said...

tell your stylist your mother died and she'll do anything for you! It's not really lying; "mother" is a part of "grandmother" and even "great grandmother."

Renny, poor thing, no hair stylists!! I also believed no one could be like TAMN.... but then I found some blogs that could def inspire her posts, blogs by real people. Appalling, really.

Jen said...

Darn those old people! They NEVER die on our schedule do they?? I totally feel your pain right now.

This sentence is techinacally a fragment:

I had a hair appointment this weekend and
those are super hard to reschedule.

Glad to see your acccount has not been hacked.

Jessica said...

OMGosh! Hair stylists can be sooooo rude! I needed a free bang trim between 'pointments an he TOTALLY said it had to wait till he was back in the salon and he wouldn't make a house call! I had a big party that night and I needed to look HOTT. So I can TOTES relate to your GGma kicking the bucket and needing an emergency hair touch up.

Colt said...

At least you can wear a cute vintage black hat with a veil the funeral, thus making it more a FUNeral.

Renny said...

Dear Tharker.
I know its satire.
I was saying I wonder where she got this crap from, because you know, she is getting her ideas from real people, that is what satire is, fyi.
I wasn't wagging my finger at anyone.
Sad for you.

Peggy said...

Very sorry TAMN, but I don't think you can afford hair appointments anymore anyway.
