Blonde on snow on red on something...

So, I have the hair dye in.  We'll see what happens*.

Bob is watching Les Stroud doing the arctic circle (Survivorman) (it's an old episode), and Les has just said "now, smelling like seal, I will walk across polar bear infested country".

Who's the smartass?  Yes, I am the super smartass. I continued the obvious (to me) train of thought:

"I also have a sign around my neck that says 'BEARS: EAT ME', and every three minutes I am making the classic call of a lonely wounded seal unable to move.  Then, I'm going to get naked and rub polar bear pheromone over the parts of me that don't already have seal fat on them."

Of course, Bear Grylls would then eat the polar bear raw, thus showing up the fundamental difference (aside from the whining) between the two programs.

I always thought that eventually, the polar bears would get way too smart for the hunters...

"Did you find anything?"

"No, nothing.  It's weird; there used to be so many polar bears around here.  Hey, where's the plane?"

"Over there - the pilot is already inside.  Let's go."

"Okay.  Hey, pilot Phil."


*plane takes off*

*whispers* "Hey, wasn't the pilot shorter on the way out?  And less white and furr...AAAGAAAAAGGGGGGGHHHHHH!"

*growl*   *chomp*  *slurp*

The polar bears have had fifty years or so of looking at crashed or abandoned planes - better watch out.

*Probably just a lighter shade of reddish blond.  Worst case, my hair falls out.  Which will make it a loss less expensive to dye my hair.

UPDATE:  Yeah, reddish blond.  I'm going lighter next time.  This is fun.

I've been saying for a while now that there needs to be a new show called "Bear Grylls Grills Bears: Recipes for Extinction", in which Grylls eats at least two endangered species per episode, and for the Very Special Christmas Special, he and the camera crew eat one into extinction.

It would, of course, be aired on Fox.

Having just chopped all my hair off, I sincerely hope that yours stays put. Short by choice is a lot less trumatic than short by ooops.

Re: Would you call it "Strawberry Blond"?
I loved hearing Mandy Patinkin sing that piece.

I do like Survivorman, but yes, he gets very whiny. I love all the "surviving on your wits and the wild"-type shows, and all the post-apocalypse/disaster survival shows.

The only thing I like about Les that I don't like about Bear is that Bear does things that I cannot do, and he's not really doing survival for the average person, more a "come along on my own personal field trip of hardship where I get naked at least once, and eat something really gross at least once".

Mmmmmmm, naked Bear.

What, did I inspire you? ;-)

Just be aware, the lighter reds fade ever so much faster! And I have yet to find a good mid-way additive to make it last longer. (There's some interesting L'Oreal shampoo with color additive, but you have to go to the pricey salons to buy it.)

It's just my hair making me red instead of blonde, so it's the natural undertones that came out - I'm still pretty red! :) I don't think it will fade, but the roots will be more noticeable.

Yeah, I want to try real blonde, but I'm not sure which dye to use, and if it can cancel out the red (I'm okay with coppery blonde, I'd just like a bit of yellow as well).
