More things I suck at doing left-handed

* Making macaroni and cheese (soup, anyone?)

* Coloring my hair

Actually, the hair itself turned out fine (brunette again. I only went red 'cuz someone else liked it).

Unfortunately, in addition to my hair, I also colored my bathroom door. (Damn squirty applicator bottle.)

In case you're wondering, that's the OUTSIDE of the bathroom door, not the inside. So there's no way to hide it from Brad, the roommate. (Although I'm sure he knows SOMETHING is up, when I texted him at work today and "innocently" asked him if he had any white paint laying around.)

And I swear, once that shit hit the door, it immediately became permanent. I frantically wiped at it (one-handed) about 2 seconds after the color missed my head, and it was already set.

At least I got rid of the red hair.

Try Soft Scrub with bleach.

Oooh good call. I'll try it now

The good news is, I'm high. (You didn't say how MUCH SS and/or bleach, and I think I got a bit overzealous.)

;)

No, it worked, kind of. It at least lightened the stain so it's a white blotch and not a big brown one. It will keep the roommate from immediately killing me, anyway. I'll work at it a little each day. Thanks, Lor!!!

Plus, I cleaned my bathroom floor, kind of. At least, I took a few half-assed swipes at it with the already bleach-soaked sponge.

just call it abstract art.

i wonder if one of those mr. clean magic eraser thingies would work...

doubt it though...

kudos on getting high, though. par-tay!

Okay, first, I really can't picture you with red hair, of any shade. Second, the fact that you dyed your hair and the door with just one hand is awesome! Quite a feat, if ya ask me. And last, you could try those Mr. Clean Magic Eraser things that they have. Those things rock! I can't promise that it'll get rid of the spot totally, but those things get crayon/marker off of walls.

Brad suggested the M.E. too.

So funny...he walked in the door, smelled the bleach and goes "Okay, What did you do?" Because the concept of me using bleach to just randomly clean was completely out of the realm of possibility, LOL.

I showed him the door and he was like "Wow. That door is really white now." Heh.

He wasn't mad, though. And he liked the hair.

Lori said...

I meant the Soft Scrub that comes with the bleach already in it. Should have specified!

Fred said...

At least the bathroom didn't explode with all the shit you mixed in there.

Jen said...

Oh. LOLOLOLOLOL

Lori said...

Jen, do you still use the editjen email?

PS...really glad you survived the fume fest.

Jen said...

Lori: no. Try jlkrzys at yahoo.

bwahahahahahahahahahahaaaa i totally just laughed so hard i almost wet my pants. i just NOW realized that you actually mixed soft scrub with bleach...instead of the soft scrub with the bleach in it. oh boy. friends should not let friends clean the bathroom door alone. especially on pain meds.

gosh - i needed that laugh. :)

Jen said...

Glad I could make you laugh, Brandy. I was worried about you.

Although, if you review Lori's original comment, I think my mistake was TOTALLY understandable. Try soft scrub with bleach. That's exactly what I did.

Renee said...

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! OMG. Yeah, you coulda totally blown up the bathroom, mixing chemicals like the corner meth dealer. HA! I can laugh only because you're okay :-)

And yes, kudos on dying your hair with one hand! You couldn't have waited til you got to MI and had Missy do it? Professionally AND two-handed? LOL

"Like the corner meth dealer."
