Blondes Have More Fun? Pssh...

No time to write a detailed post, but I did say I would explain the bet that I lost, so here's the short version.  We held a canned food drive at my school, and homeroom classes competed against each other to try to collect the most cans.  I bet my students that I could bring in more cans than all of them combined.  If I won, they had to go up on the stage during the first five minutes of lunch and sing a "Mrs. P is awesome" song in front of the whole cafeteria.  If they won, I would come to school with pink hair.  I do similar bets every year to pump up the competition, but generally I don't lose.  This year my students creamed me!  They brought in over seven hundred cans!  Our class broke all previous records.  I'd love to write more about this, but I'm really crunched for time, so here's a quick pic of my hair today.


I sprayed the entire bottle in my hair and ran out before I could cover it all.


Okay, so it's probably pretty obvious that I upped the brightness/contrast of this second pic.  That was just for the fun of it.  ;-)  If I ever find this exact shade of pink in a bottle of permanent hair dye, I might be tempted to go for it.  Nevermind department meetings and parent-teacher conferences.

Today was fun and insane!  But in the interest of not being done celebrating, I'm signing out now!
