Friday feedback

Okay, I may regret this later, but here are pictures of the new hairdo:
Voila. (I think Drew is mocking my pose in the last picture, that cheeky dog!) It's really not that exciting, I know, but I've wanted to give bangs another try for awhile and was afraid I couldn't pull them off. (Keep in mind that I'm still figuring out how to style them.) It's too bad I don't have a picture of my awesome 80s poof bangs to compare. Who knows, maybe next I'll go for the pixie cut or finally get a tat.

On a separate note, I received great feedback on my chapter and was pleasantly surprised by everyone's reaction. I thought it would receive a lot more criticism than it did, and I was happy to discover that the readers loved my research details, which I was beginning to think were a bit overbearing. Yay. Still a lot of work to do, but at least I know I'm heading in the right direction.

Bored? Lunchtime viewing provided courtesy of cult-favorite Joss Whedon: Dr Horrible. (Thanks for the link, Yvonne, I'm loving it.)

You look beautiful! The first photo I can see on the dust jacket of your book! You certainly suit 'bangs/ a fringe! I think Drew approves too!:-)

Angie said...

Ah, thanks, Lane!
It is fringe, then? I thought so.
I don't know, I think he's mocking me. ;)

Thank you for those photographs, Angie. I think you look gorgeous in all of them, particularly the leftmost one with the lovely smile. I wonder if it's because of that smile that I love the South Bank one so much. But, yes the first one would look great on a dust jacket.
I am a little confused by this bangs/fringe thing; to me a fringe is when a portion of the hair is cut shorter than the rest and finishes between the eyebrow and the eye (while the rest is tied back, or just hangs down).
I think Drew looks very happy in the third picture and so do you.
I will look forward to reading your novel (whatever author picture they use, of course).

... but I have also seen the style you are wearing described as a fringe (on the same page as the type of fringe I described above). So I am totally confused, and will just admire how good you look.

I didn't really know what 'bangs' were - but now I've seen your photos I get it - your hair looks fab.

Good news on the feedback - shows you are obviously much better than you realised. I'm looking forward to reading your book!

Thanks for the info (last post comments)on origins of your name - very interesting.

Kat :-)

I must say, you look like a model in the second photo. You're gorgeous, girlie! :-)

Angie said...

Ah thanks everyone, now I'm embarrassed :p

Pierre, usually bangs hang across the forehead, but I had mine cut as long sideswept bangs...they're not that dramatic, but very different for me. (They appear thinner in the pic than they are too.)

Kat, it's an Americanism. ;)
I was also interested to hear about your Greek Cypriot heritage with a related name.

Kristen, hardy har har. Now I'm more pics of me, I'll stick to Drew from now on!

The photos are lovely, especially the first one.

Yvonne said...

I love the photo and the haircut, gorgeous! My pleasure re: the link but I missed Saturday's act - so raging!

Angie said...

Thanks, Debs and Yvonne. :)

Yvonne, I missed the last one too! Boo! I thought it was up a few more days, darn it.
