I was looking at myself in the mirror, and, admittedly, it was night, and one vanity light was out, and I know I have said it before, but:  strewth!  I am no longer a blonde! 

I've been a blonde all my life.  It's even in my user profile!  And in recent years it's been artificially enhanced.  But I looked in the mirror tonight, having had three or so inches of blonde tips cut off, and thought:  I have medium brown hair.  I have ... fairly dark brown hair.  My natural hair color is brown. 

This is something that will take some getting used to.

It could be a dark blonde still. I consider my hair to be very dark, but then I went and matched it to hair color swatches at CVS and it turned out to be dark blonde. I was shocked.

I've only seen a few pictures with you in them, from your Stratford trip, but you looked blonde-ish to me.

Now that it's daylight, I've looked at myself in a mirror, and my hair doesn't look all that dark. It's definitely got gold tones in it.

Hee. So was mine, for years. I just didn't realize how dark it really was.

Someone called me "blonde" the other day and I did a double-take. Do not want. I've often considered dyeing it darker. I like the color it is when it's wet - nothing radical.

Because of the stereotype, or just for aesthetic reasons?

I'm in the same boat -- it's just new, and not how I self-identify.
