  1. Well, it helps that so many of these apply to any semi-rational person. But yes, more alike than I would have guessed. Yay!

    And dear, I shudder at the thought of trying to colour your hair. It would be impossible to work the dye through evenly, simply impossible!

    Besides, your hair is gorgeous. No touch!
