I feel like a middle aged woman when I admit that I am obsessed with Oprah.com. I don't watch the show, although I have in the past, and I have only read the magazine in the waiting room at doctors' offices, but holy crap this woman has a FANTASTIC website! The articles are so interesting and hit every topic imaginable from relationships to spirituality to health to food to entertainment...you name it!
The most recent article I read was about gay men (and Melissa Ethridge) and their thoughts and experiences on being gay. It stemmed from Robert Trachtenberg's book When I Knew and the answers are so interesting and heartfelt. I especially liked what Melissa said about coming out to her parents and their supportive reaction: That's all that a kid needs to hear from their parents is, 'Hey, as long as you're happy, we support you.'" Isn't that all any kid needs--gay or straight? I hope that when I'm a parent I am supportive of my kids no matter what stupid, crazy, idiotic, lovable, creative, genius, unimaginable thing they do. Don't worry my friends; kids are a long way off for me. :)
This weekend I'm getting my hair done! It's an absolute wreck because I thought it would be a great idea to dye it from a box. (Side note: That's not a great idea. Don't do it.) So off to the salon it is for me and my orange hair. I decided to include a picture so that when my hair (hopefully) looks fabulous there can be a great before/after effect.
Have an amazing weekend! Do something new!
