Or, you know, didn't realise I'd taken a break in the first place ;) .
But yup, I did, I took quite the break as you can tell from the below post which was about my book launch early December. It was nice to do so, and I'm glad I did it. Taking a break from something allows you to miss it!
And, yes, I have missed blogging :) .
I have several interesting things to share with you, stuff has happened over the past several months, and there may or may not be a new book coming out from yours truly in the early summer maybe. But I'll be posting on all such news in the coming days/weeks (I am nothing, if not a tease). Today is more for me just to say hi, it's good to be back etc.
Though, I do have one most important thing to share with you all . . .
I cut my hair.
I know. Stop the presses.
But I haven't cut my hair short since I was 14 and it was a rather traumatic experience I must say. Though ultimately it was also amazing. It's weird, I never thought I particularly identified myself by my hair. It wasn't like I ever did anything particularly crazy with it or anything. But after cutting it I realised just how much I subconsciously had. It's silly, but something as innocuous as cutting one's hair (and, not sure if you heard, but hair? It totally grows back) can be a pretty huge emotional experience. It wasn't like I went all pixie haircut either. Didn't pull an Anne Hathaway (though, if I ever cut my hair that short, you'd better believe I'll be singing as it happens like she did). Still. Emotions were felt, my friends. Emotions were felt.
Here is a photo diary of the experience:
|Waiting at the salon - Salon Bespoke in Toronto|
|"Well hair, this is it."|
|". . . that happened."|
|And there it all is. In a baggie. And no, not for a keepsake, I donated my hair to Wigs For Kids.|
And the final result. . .
Being an actor I then had to immediately get new headshots (yes, it makes any decisions about changing one's look delightfully more complicated :P ) so here's the oh so serious fancy picture (that I instagrammed a bit for fun . . . or maybe because I have a serious instagram addiction . . . )
And that is the story about cutting my hair.
ALSO . . . did you know the fox was the new owl?? (because evidently animal trends are a thing) This is a big deal for yours truly because as a pre-teen I was OBSESSED with foxes. While my friends had pictures of boy bands covering their walls, I had foxes. Yup. Should I have admitted that? . . . you know I don't see how that's any more embarrassing than boy band pictures if I think about it so I admit it with pride!
Anyway, it's brought back the 11 year old Adrienne and I've had such fun surfing the net and looking at all the pointless (but AMAZING) chatchkas out there one can buy that are fox like. And I stumbled on this print and I think it's wonderful, and wanted to share. I know little about the artist aside that their handle is cat_using_a_computer. I think it's just lovely, it has a very whimsical British feel. Enjoy!
That's it for now! We have some pretty cool stuff coming up this week, an interview with an amazing prop maker for some major films who also in his spare time makes the coolest iPhone steampunk cases for Steampunk Tuesday, details about my new book . . . and more!
Stay tuned! Same bat time, same bat channel!
