FASHION NEWS MAKING NEWS

Here's a new low in stylist-client relationships.

(Thanks to Jay Leno's Research Department) (and a big ol' sad face that nobody else sent this in) (to The Blog, of all people) (not that we would comment on his haircut) (if we know what's good for us)

My son cuts his hair with a Flo-Bee.

He cuts mine, too, and it looks damn good.

I'm pretty sure Jeff Meyerson sent this in . . .

Maybe she felt that the bad haircut was an imminent threat to her person and that she was, therefore, - at least by Florida law - justified in shooting up the joint.

I had seen this, but just thought it was missing something. Wanted to send this in:

Police: Woman who looks just like Regis Philbin robs stylist, apparently over bad haircut

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RICHLAND, Wash. -- A woman who makes a living as a Regis Philbin impersonator providing entertainment at area garage sales was apparently dissatisfied with her haircut. She was so unhappy, in fact, that she robbed the salon by threatening to detonate a nuclear football, and wiped snot on her stylist's car. She then used part of the stolen money ($8) to pay for a trim at another shop, police said.

Julie A. Anderson, 48, was booked into the Benton County Jail for investigation of first-degree silliness and second-degree maloderous mischief.

Employees told police that the woman showed up Wednesday morning at Stage 1, a salon she had patronized for years, and asked to speak with her regular stylist, who was not in, police Capt. Mike Cobb said.

The woman waited in the parking lot and put her stylist into a headlock when she arrived. She then walked back into the salon and demanded $100, in nonsequential Susan B. Anthony coins.

Employees gave her the money, which they just happened to have thanks to the "Look Like Susan B. Anthony Festival" they had recently held, then locked the door after she left and called police.

The woman got into her car and started to drive away but stopped, got out and wiped at least one booger onto the back window of the stylist's car, and fled, Cobb said.

She was arrested about 45 minutes later as she left another hair salon nearby. She told stylists there she had received a bad hair cut some time ago, and that her livelihood as a Regis impersonator was in jeapordy.

The woman paid with a 8 Susan B. Anthony coins, apparently from Stage 1, and then walked out to her car, where she was arrested, Cobb said.

"She said she was a dissatisfied customer," Cobb said. "So we had to let her go."

She should have just sent in cat doots like everyone else...

Although shooting up your stylist's car and robbing the salon definitely sends an "I'm not satisfied" message.

She said she was a dissatisfied customer," Cobb said.

Ya think???

I understand this totally - many's the time I would have liked to do the same thing -

Call me, sweetie - NOT GUILTY!!

I can't get no-ooo sat-is-fac-tion
I can't get no-ooo sat-is-fac-tion
’cause I try and I try and I try and I try.
I can’t get no, I can’t get no.

When I’m firin’ in her car
And that man comes on the radio
And he’s tellin’ me more and more
About some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination.
I can’t get no, oh no no no.
Hey hey hey, that’s what I say.

I'd like to see her booking photo.

Must be a new trend in crime. Oddly enough, (and I an NOT making this up), I received a call this norning from my stylist. Someone broke into his car last night and stole his XM radio, his bag with his scissors and his appointment book. He's now calling all of his clients trying to get the appointments straightened out.

judi,

I wanted to send it in, but Julie and I have the same last name and I thought you might think I was related to her.

My daughter is a "stylist" and she must be doing okay, 'cuz she's always got more customers making appointments than she has room for in her book ... none "dissatisfied" ... yet, at least ...

Good thing the customer was only "dissatisfied" ... she coulda been "disgruntled" or even ... "irate" ... wonder what woulda been snotted/shotted then ...

Okay, Sondra ...

Last nite my Internet Explorer puked, and so now I've gotta use Safari ... which does not (not knot, or naught) have a "refresh" button ... hence, the double post ... but they're two minutes apart ... ??? omg/wtf/grb/ran/bbq !!!

U.O,

You don't Need the refresh button. It's just easier.

Click the red X after just a few seconds. Click the back button. And then click the forward button if you want to see if it posted.

Sondra -

Well, in the five-plus hours since I posted that last one, I've learned a few things about Safari, and related stuff ... the apparent double above was not really ... I was just in a hurry, and/or made a minor error that wasn't actually a double ... sort of ...

Besides which ... some things about Safari I like better ... but I've a couple of clinkers about leaving Internet Explorer ... like ... how can I transfer my Favorites from there, to Bookmarks on Safari? (Right now I've got all of it on an icon on the desktop, handy to the use of it, but it's not a very pretty layout, and I know I'd rather put it in a logical place, like Bookmarks ...

Suggestions on how to transfer it/them/data ...? Aside from reentering every single one, that is ...

U.O.

[[put's on geek hat]]

I use Netscape, myself. But I'll bet that if you go into Safari's preferences you can tell it to put a Refresh button in the tool bar. Safari Doesn't have an Import IE Favorites in it's bookmarks menu???? (Wait! I just opened Safari and checked. You're right, it doesn't.) You might want to try Netscape 7. It's built on the same program as Safari (Mozilla). Not quite as fast as Safari, as it isn't integrated into the OS. But it's darned good.

[[removes geek hat]]

Well, fancy meeting you here!

Hmmm ... Well, I dunno about Netscape ... s'pose I'd gotta download it, huh?

ACkshully, I'm starting to like Safari more, as I get used to it ... the "Favorites" deal is not too big a deal really, I can still click the icon open, scroll a bit, double-click the name and it pops up the favorite item, so it's available, whenever I really need it, with only a couple more clicks ... I just got used to having it on the left side and attached, and now it's on the right and not attached ... my two most common sites are on top of the display page NEway, and the 2-5 next-most-used are handy enuf, or I can open them, copy the addy, paste it on the Safari user, open it and then Bookmark it ...

The way the weather is here in Palmdale/Mojave area, I'll prolly have plenty of time in the next couple of days to do just that ...

*Looks around ... doesn't even know what a computer geek hat looks like ... resumes stumbling around in computers until discovers 47-step route to access something only two clicks away ... discovers various sites displaying attractive opposite-gender sapient mammalian hominids ... no longer cares about original question ...

Oh, tnx for the help, AB ...

No prob, U.O.. As the nurse said to the surgeon with a hernia, "Suture self." I like Netscape mostly cuz I've been using it since I first had it installed on an abacus.

Can't really describe the geek hat, but I can assure you that it looks pretty darned spiffy.

Spiffy? Spiffy?!?

I can do spiffy ... just show me where to get one ...

U.O,....re "no longer cares"....Yer a hoot! (LMAO) tnx, I needed that
