sometimes, only sometimes, i want hair like that, gorgeous long thick hair (which i would, if i grew mine out)...and then i remember.
lost pony-tail holders.
worrying what to do.
that horrible awkward stage between short and long.
and i dont want anymore.
plus, i can get up in the morning, run my fingers through my hair, and i'm good.
but sometimes, just sometimes...i lust after hair like yours.

Lovely. Just lovely.

I'm a ways behind you - mine was brushing my shoulder blades, but I just had 2 frizzled inches lopped off. My hair hasn't reached my waist since I was 10 or 11.

Trée said...

Nice hair. :-)

Erin, Is that you? It looks like a Gustav Klimt painting.

Very soft and beautiful.

Erin O'Brien said...

Shaina: My hair is long only because I hate going to the salon. I should do some style or something, but I don't. One day I'll be an old lady with long gray hair and everyone will call me Miss Havisham.

Norm: woot!

SxK: I need those 2 frizzled inches trimmed myself.

Tree: Nice glasses.

n: Yes, that is your dubious hostess. Thanks for the compliment. "The Kiss" is one of my faves. I think the pic is soft only because I accidentally had the cam on low resolution. Then I had to crop out a little too much (ahem) information.

Okay, it was light years ago, but thanks for the memory of a freer time.

Hal said...

This brings back memories, and still more memories.

Erin O'Brien said...

Sleek and Hal: LOVE THE PIX!!

M mega-tresses are still intact. I took this pic less than a month ago.

Larry said...

My Thursday is complete!!! Bless you.

Gimme head with hair
Long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming,
Streaming, flaxen, waxen

Give me down to there hair
Shoulder length or longer
Here baby, there mama
Everywhere daddy daddy

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

Let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas
A hive for bees
A nest for birds
There ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my...

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty
Oily, greasy, fleecy
Shining, gleaming, streaming
Flaxen, waxen
Knotted, polka-dotted
Twisted, beaded, braided
Powdered, flowered, and confettied
Bangled, tangled, spangled, and spaghettied!

Oh say can you see
My eyes if you can
Then my hair's too short

Down to here
Down to there
Down to where
It stops by itself

I resisted the temptation to link to my Leopard Skin Armor photo (you know the one).

I, too, thought of Klimt. But only after I thought, "Lower, please." :)

Doug said...

I mean, at least give us the Plumber's View!

Renee Somebody said...

Simply beautiful. I've been growing mine out after a crazy cut-it-all-off moment three years ago...

josh williams said...

Nice hair, but how do you wash and dry, I have never figured that one out. Figured about everything else out but how to wash really long hair?

Erin O'Brien said...

Larry: Wow! Your Thursdays are long, dude!

S11: Thanks. It's all yours baby.

Doug: I actually did have to crop the photo ...

Renee: I know those moments. I get 'em sometimes, but then it keeps growing and growing.

JW: You start at the top, baby, and work your way down.

Toby said...

Hair my ass!

Erin O'Brien said...

Toby: Better than a hair up your ass, no?

I have been too overwhelmed to comment on the post until now.

I have rarely seen such a wonderful thing, Madame.

jungle jane said...

I cannot see hair. I can only focus hoping to see more of your ass.

Libby Spencer said...

Wow. I love all the pix. I might have to propose to Hal if he promises to grow his out again.

I wish I had a pix of when mine was that long but it was never that thick and straight and shiny. It was wild and curly and flew in every direction. I sobbed for an hour when I cut it the first time.

Now I can't imagine growing it out again. It used to take forever to comb through the tangles.
