I want to post, but I also want to get enough work done today to justify taking tomorrow off, so I'll make it short.

I work a lot. I play less. I am okay with this, remarkably. I love the chaos and energy of tour, but right now I'm also enjoying wrapping myself in my comforter and answering emails. Balance. I'm working on it.

[ profile] strawberryjulia found herself in a bit of a pickle and needed a place to crash for a few days here in NYC. I offered the couch, because that's what I do, and because last fall I posted a very sad blog entry and she replied almost immediately to say that she understood and she hoped that knowing that someone else was awake and reading what I was saying and understanding would help. It came exactly when I needed it. And it did help.

So, two days of the delightful, pink-haired [ profile] strawberryjulia commenced. I have a longer blog entry in my head all about friendship and the internet and letting people you've never met into your home.

The short answer is, I am really lucky that there is so much love in my life. Hi.

I hope I remember to write that blog.

Oh, and I got a haircut:

It also does this:

You look so pixie-ish in that first photo :-) The cut looks good on you!

Sorry. ;-)

Love the hair! You're so pretty!

You look hot.

Obviously your ringtone in my phone would be "Rock Star."

Oh, you yummy woman you!

The Internet is amazing. Our trip to NYC this past holiday season was entirely possible by the grace of strangers - not only an internet friend of my own, but the internet friend of a friend of mine stepped up, too - letting us into their homes and onto their couches. I love your city. The grace of strangers is incredibly beautiful.

Mmm....balance. Tell me when you find it? I've been working on that myself these days.

The hair is HOT.

Oh nice haircut! But now I can no longer think "Holy crap is that Beth hiding out in Philly?" Because there is a woman who takes the same train I do on Tuesdays that someone reminds me of you. You're not secretly living in Philly then, are you?

That haircut suits you WAY more than your old one. It makes you look a lot thinner, too. You were lovely before but now you look like a model. :D

I love the hair! You look so stunning. ♥

As for the internet and friendship I adore it! I have my best friend in the world whom I seriously don't know how I lived without thanks to the internet.

And in about 48 hours I have an internet friend moving from Ohio to Los Angeles. Because her new housing situation fell through she will be spending a few weeks crashing at my place. It took like 2 seconds to over up our house like I would to any of my friends. I love that the internet makes it easier to make friends all over the world.

You win today.

You look AMAZING. I didn't RECOGNIZE you at first. I definitely agree that the cut highlights your bone structure. I...uh...I'm going to go change my pants.

Holy shit. Read the entry I JUST posted called "on hair." Synchronicity. You wear it well, dear.

I love it. You look like some awesome sexy pixie.

Love ya mean it

Love the haircut, Beth. Looks like it'll be quite versatile, too. =-)

Alright I know that a million people have already said this, but your hair cut is very sexy! Well done. I'm gonna do my best to make it to Coachella, if only for a day! Miss you, friend.

Wow! The new cut really plays up your eyes.

I love your hair and your couch.

That is all.

Awesome haircut there. And yes, yes, yes to letting internet friends come stay. It's always worked out well for me.
