got out of the house

S. sent me an e-mail about meeting up at a cafe for lunch and then going shopping at Marshall's. By the time I saw it, I was already on my way out of the house to meet up with H. to interview R.G. about the relations/collaboration between the Women's Center and the GLBT organization. R.G. mentioned that she was a founding member of the PFLAG organization in town, which I definitely want to follow up on. After that interview, I paid the phone bill, did a couple of other errands, and got my hair cut and dyed red. I went home, and said, "What do you think?" Mom immediately said that she hated it. She said she thought it looked better when I dyed it myself. I talked to J.-my-brother later in the evening, and he reminded me that Mom hates it when I dye my hair at home. I also remember her saying it looked horribly brassy when I dyed it myself. So hypocritical points for Mom there. I'm glad I have my brother to be a reality check for me.

Soap opera killed one of the better characters off today. I knew the actor was leaving, but I was hoping they'd just send him to America or elsewhere in Europe like they do for other characters, to leave open the possibility of him coming back. But instead they blew him up. There are a lot of other characters they could have blown up without me minding so much -- Lena, Celine, Zoe (though thankfully I think she's off in boarding school), Stella, Lars...A lot of the other characters would have been happy if any of the Steinkamps (except for Vanessa), or Axel Schwarz were blown up. I would miss the comedy Axel sometimes provides. Richard Steinkamp is often quite funny as well. I like that most of the actors can do great comedy, and that the show's writers give them that chance. I'm sure there will be much angst from the other characters about the character they killed off.
