Oops!  I did it again… yes, I colored my hair.  (Sorry, Heather!)

I know, I know, I should have my stylist do it.  I guess I’m addicted to hair coloring danger… the rush of adrenaline as I look in the mirror afterward to see what I’ve created.

 This time – it’s Goth Lintee Bean.  The color I selected, “Nutmeg”, I imagined giving me a lush headful of rich chocolate brown.  Instead, my hair is nearly black.  I was stunned.

I’m still stunned.  It might grow on me.  It often does, it’s hair after all.  It highlights the lovely dark purple circles under my eyes – a result of Afer’s nighttime holiday carols, sung loudly, ALL night.

I don’t think this is a change no one will notice.  I’m a little nervous about that.  Maybe I’ll tell everyone I’m trying out for a Goth band – the Crazy Satan-Worshipping Cat Ladies.

On another note – I went to Chipotle for lunch.  I rarely go there, as usually there’s a line through the restaurant, out the door, and down the block.  However, as it’s New Year’s Eve, many people are off work.  So, I went in – and it was busier than it had been when I went the Friday after Thanksgiving – but still not much of a line.  Good news for me.

Apparently, Chipotle is one of those places that scan your brain on the way in.  I walked up to the counter and started to tell the staff I wanted a veggie burrito when they were already making it, and confirming I wanted beans… and I started to indicate I wanted chips but they pointed to another staff person near the end of the line.  I started to indicate I wanted corn salsa and guacamole, but they were ahead of me on it.  I got toward the end and said I’d like chips – he indicated he already packed them up for me.  Meanwhile, the cashier had already rung me up and was waiting for cash. 

I admit, I got quite frazzled.  I was scrambling for money as I blurted “OMG, you guys are too fast for me!”  The chips guy seemed to find that quite funny.
