My Sister: A Conversation and New Hair

A conversation between Lala and myself yesterday.

S: I just heard from the Nightline producer. Looks like my segment will run next week.

L: Dude, are you going to watch it?

S: I think I am going to record it and watch it later. You know, so I can pause and bury my head under a pillow every 23 seconds.

L: Good plan.

S: What if the interview is all cut and spliced and I sound like a total idiot?

L: (Deep sigh) Oh, that is totally what happened to Brenda.

S: Brenda? Who is Brenda?

L: (incredulous laughter) Um, BRENDA. Remember when she was interviewed about her friends by some newspaper? And the reporter totally twisted her words and misquoted her? And like, EVERYONE was furious with her? Donna and Kelly WOULDN’T EVEN TALK TO HER.

S: Wait. Are you referring to a Beverly Hills 90210 episode from 15 years ago?

L: Um, YEAH. Don’t you remember?

(Complete silence.)

L: Seriously, HOW COULD YOU NOT REMEMBER?! Whatever. I’m just saying, it could happen.

S: Thanks for the tip.

L: No problem.

In other news, we had an unofficial sisterly Hair Thursday this week. Lala was sick of her long hair and wanted a change, so she went from this:


To this:


Super cute, huh? Donna and Kelly would be BLINDED by jealousy.

    does lala know that 90210 is coming BACK?!

    (nightline – whee!)

    Oh YES. She also informed me that Kelly Taylor will be a teacher/guidance counselor. Holla!

    Your sister has herself one great new haircut. And I kind of adore your how family now. (Sealed by the 90210 reference, naturally.)

    You should totally have a 90210 Hair Thursday! People can submit photos of their 90210 hairstyles and we can vote on which Melrose Place hairstyle they should have instead! Although….those Brenda Walsh bangs are coming back in style…..

    P.S. Weird. I totally read Moose’s comment with the word “whole” instead of “how”—I should drink wine and read more often!

    You both look alike! In a good way! I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but you both also have quite a resemblance to Kristin Davis from Sex & The City. I think it’s the smile/mouth.

    What the?? We didn’t get to VOTE. That’s just not right, Lala.

    You’re lucky it turned out as cute as it did. ; )

    Based on this alone, I would like to nominate myself to be your sister’s new best friend.

    You and your sister are so adorable. I LOVE her new haircut – very flattering.

    Whatever it is that she does to make her hair look like that, I need to do too.

    Of course! Brenda…..how could you ever forget?

    Your sister’s hair looks great, and the 90210 thing is hilarious. Also, I am so sad that Hair Thursday is booked for the next eleventy seven months because my very very long, don’t know what to do with it, always in a ponytail mama hair really needs some help — but I just found this blog two days ago, so I think I have to get in line behind the entire rest of the female population of the United States. But I still love you anyway.

    To be honest the only reason I want to go back to OKC is to see Lala. Shh. Don’t tell the others.
