New Hair

During my lunch hour I ran into Supercuts over in Emory Village. I actually got a very satisfactory haircut for $15. I love love love my regular stylist but he now charges like $65 and on my budget that isn't happening. So, Supercuts it is. And every 13th haircut is free! Meanwhile here's a pic I took on the walk back to the office. It actually looks better in real life, but at least you can see that the black is all gone now and I'm left with a mix of a couple shades of reddish brown and -- gasp! -- my real color, too.

Dump the Pump

Even if tomorrow won't work for you, think about it another day. Although frankly, I think the cost of gas is only one of about a dozen reasons Americans (at least urban ones who don't live in, say, Montana) need to pry themselves away from their personal vehicles.

On June 19, people across the country will “dump the pump” and ride public transportation on the Third Annual Dump the Pump Day. This event is sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and more than 100 public transportation systems will be participating nationwide.

The 2008 National Dump the Pump Day is a public awareness day that emphasizes how public transportation is the quickest way to beat high gas prices and it encourages people to ride a bus or train instead of driving a car. This national day also highlights public transportation as an important travel option that helps combat climate change.

More than 100 public transportation systems are participating in “dump the pump” activities this year. Some public transit systems are having public events with drawings for free transit passes and other prizes, while other systems are offering free or reduced rides, doing radio promotions, and providing “transit ambassadors” to help new riders.

3. Had a nice conversation with co-worker Robin. As usual!

4. Had yummy lunch.

5. Got nice, cheap haircut.

6. Watched the Daily Show online and nearly fell out of my chart laughing at a joke about Dubya and a monkey's paw.

7. Went grocery shopping, got some basic foodstuffs.

8. After leaving store, noticed huge gaffe on bill and got $17 refunded.

9. It's a beautiful day.
