on pixie cuts ‘n’ cupcakes

Mark my words, the pixie cut's the next trend.

How can I say this with such assurance? Because through no intent or fault of my own, I do something with my hair and six months later the masses follow. This has happened time after time.

I've seen it happen with my clothes too – though not quite to the same extent – where I'll start wearing some item or some item a certain way – and boom! … six months later it hits the streets. I attribute that partly to the timelessness of my "fashions" — meaning that I dress now exactly as I have since I was little (only in larger sizes) so it's statistically inevitable that eventually my clothes will fall in and out of fashion.

But the hair thang … I've changed that up way more than the clothes. I'm a bellwether. So start watching the women's magazines, ads and celebrity styling. You'll see. The pixie's comin'.

I'm bringing dessert but have yet to decide what. Money's tight so there's reason to make due with supplies on hand. I'm thinking a streusel Bundt cake or cocoa brownies. Or cupcakes for our climate:
