I am officially a new age hippie freak

I got all excited this morning because I had a chance to clean the bathrooms with environmentally friendly baking soda recipes involving vinegar.

It's only a matter of time before I start smelling of patchouli and walk around sporting white girl dreds and tie dye.

Actual book post coming up. Really!

Please don't, I hate white-people-dreadlocks... It bugs me as much as Madonna wearing plastic crosses back in the day or those damned Passion of the Cross nail necklaces.

I kid! Don't worry. I kind of like my purple-ish hair as it is. I just like to make fun of myself before anybody else gets a chance. Pre-emptive strike, if you will.
As for Madonna, I'd much rather her wear blinged-out crosses than that stupid Kabbalah string bracelet. Like she knows jack about Judaism; at least a cross reflects her actual heritage!
The Passion of the Cross nail necklaces amuse me to no end. I've never actually seen one; they seem to be a Protestant thang, ironically. Most of the people I know are Catholics, and while Catholics have a long and proud tradition of gruesome morbidity and fetishizing pain, suffering, and death (the crucifix, anyone? Stages of the Cross too), they tend to draw the line at personal jewelry.
It's amazing how many times I almost wrote "we" instead of "they" in that paragraph. I haven't been a believer for, what, 7 years or so. You can take the girl out of the Catholic Church, it seems, but not always the other way around.
