Random 5 Friday

It's that time yet again for the Random 5 Friday...

1.  Project Runway, Top Chef, American Idol, Survivor, Amazing Race, America's Next Top Model...Do you watch reality TV.  I think 99% of the population does watch reality TV now.  When it started so many years ago it more of an option but now it's everywhere and there are some kind of competition show on nearly every single channel.  I am addicted I have to admit!

2.  My art adventure has taken a turn for the good as of late.  I was approached online by an outfit out of Houston about a project here in Tulsa.  They somehow found my art from my art blog (Artist In Training) and liked my Sunset on Grand River painting.  They wanted me to produce something like it for a HUGE project here in Tulsa, a 4' x 6' painting!!!!!  Well, after a year of nothing but emails and promises that things were happening and me seeing nothing happening I received a check yesterday for half of the project, FINALLY!  It is a very big deal and I will let you know where it will hang after it happens.  Needless to say I am now flush with a bit of dough and need to purchase a very large canvas and large tubes of paint and get to painting!!!!!  Plus I have a show this weekend at The Garden Trug.  I will be there from 1-3 on Saturday!

3.  To go gray or not to go gray!  Do you color your hair?  I certainly do.  You know I got to thinking that I have been coloring or bleaching my hair since I turned 18 years old.  I come from a long line of hairdressers, my grandmother and two of her daughters (my aunts) and two cousins.  They even had their own beauty shop which I had my hair done a lot.  When I was just out of high school my very, very long hair was kind of dishwasher blonde and my Aunt Sharon wanted to do this new technique called "painting", well, I had such a huge head of hair that she opted to to go the easy route and brush it through my hair...
It was totally bleached and I never turned back!
After that we frosted it for years...

and since then it's been foiled and the gray has never had a chance to show it's silvery face... 
Sometimes it's darker but I really prefer the blonder shades... 
one of these days I may let the silver show, one of these days, not today!

4.  Small world...yes it is!

5.  Don't ignore an open door...take a chance and walk through it!

We don't get any tv channels, so we can only watch dvds. But I used to love The Amazing Race, back in the day.

Congratulations on the art project -- that's big!

And I actually like you better with a darker shade of hair -- just sayin'. :)

i have colored my hair & gave it up a while back - then the grey hairs really started to come in - i always hoped that they would be like those ladies who have those perfect grey/white hairs. wouldn't that be nice. my mom stopped a long time ago .. she is almost all white. i know she feel it is much nicer on her hair. & it feels better too. we will see how long i can go until i start again??!

The only reality shows I will watch are sports. I wish all the rest of them would go far away. They are very scripted and fake. I found that out when someone I knew was on one that they thought would be educational for people and then found out that they had been edited in such a way that it made them look stupid and went against everything that they were trying to show people.

I watch reality shows too. Sure beats the heck out of some of those scary shows like Grimm or the stupid ones that flood the tv screen every night that are supposed to be funny sitcoms and are a bunch of trash. Well, I guess you got me started, now didn't you. hehe.
